Two Australian research centres are joining their forces in a radical approach to biofilm control.
Sumitomo has released a range of PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) membranes designed for water microfiltration and sewage treatment. The MBR (membrane bioreactor) module is suitable for water purification applications such as recycling water for farming and gardening, recycled drinking water, sewage wastewater treatment and recycled industrial water.
The Biffi F02 is a compact, intelligent, electric actuator which incorporates all the advanced variables needed to provide effective control in large and complex plants.
Optioneer is a 3D modelling software tool that allows users to 'virtually' design, configure and automatically cost multiple options for a water or wastewater treatment plant at the concept design phase. It can produce process flow diagrams (PFDs) on screen using template icons for more than 100 pieces of plant and equipment. Smart data associated with the PFD icons automatically convey dimensions and shape to the 3D images, and each piece of equipment can be 'dragged' and located into the 3D environment. The process of cutting 3D shapes and sizes into the 3D topography is automatic, as is the calculation of cut and fill volumes for preliminary construction and final trim earthworks surfaces.
Liquid/solid separation technology specialist GL&V has restructured itâ€™s worldwide business groups to align its operations more closely with target market segments.
The submersible wastewater pumps range of Danish-built PXPumps has a design which is centred around minimising life cycle costs (LCCs). This is achieved by improved hydraulic and electrical efficiencies.
Cleaning the inside of giant storage tanks at refineries and bulk chemical storage facilities is set to get a whole lot easier, safer and cheaper, with the development of an innovative jet cleaning device.
The AquiStar PT2X submersible pressure transmitter represents the latest in state-of-the-art level measurement technology. Building on years of successful experience, this industry standard digital RS485 interface device offers great noise immunity, thermal performance and transient protection.
Mixquip, the division of Teralba Industries that designs, manufactures and imports liquid mixing equipment, has expanded their range of portable Side Entry Agitators with the release of the new 240 Volt Single phase 'RUMMAGER'.
Lower Murray Water (LMW) in Mildura required a gate to divert sewage flows to catchment ponds. Darren Bennett from LMW was concerned with the traditional square bottom penstocks that had previously been used to control water flows
Pulsair is a technology that delivers an efficient, cost-effective, low-shear method of mixing. The system injects a powerful pulse of compressed air (or gas) into the vessel in a way that creates a vertical circular mixing motion and the contents of the tank are quickly blended into a uniform mix. The mixture can be held in suspension with sequentially-timed pulses that require little expense of energy.
The latest version of the Strathkelvin Strathtox respirometer can tell users quickly, simply and clearly when the bacteria should be fed less, aerated less and loaded more in an activated sludge or IDEA treatment plant. This is done by measuring their actual respiration rate.
Teralba has expanded its range of Dimpleflo Monotube Heat Exchangers to include an (8") 200 mm inner tube.
The storage and handling of bulk materials such as grain, flour and plastic pellets can be a high-risk activity and demands accurate and reliability level limit detection. A poorly designed high level limit switch may cause an overflow or a spill leading to wastage with an adverse financial and environmental impact. On the other hand, unreliable low-level measurements may cause inventory problems that negative affect a company's bottom line.
The RP03 and DC03 series of backflow preventers ensure contaminated water cannot flow back into the public mains supply. Using the RPZ (reduced pressure zone) principle featured in Tyco's existing products and with thorough product redesign has further simplified inline service and minimises spares holding requirements.
