Bentley Systems has announced its SewerGEMS, SewerCAD, CivilStorm and StormCAD V8i (SELECTseries 4) products for the analysis and design of wastewater and stormwater systems. The releases provide hydraulic and operational capabilities for an increased depth of information modelling that empowers users to evaluate and compare a wider range of network considerations.
Gorman-Rupp Ultra V Series self-priming centrifugal sewage pumps are high-performance and high-efficiency pumps that are mounted high and dry (up to 7.6 m) above wet wells to deliver a safer operating environment for operators and lower costs to asset owners.
An upgrade at Heinz Australia's Golden Circle plant in Brisbane, featuring CST Wastewater Solutions' high-efficiency rotary drum screening, is said to have sharply improved solids capture and reduced solids waste disposal volumes.
Ultracoat is an epoxy coating system that can repair and provide rehabilitation and protection of grease traps, settlement tanks, manholes and other trade effluent chambers.
Anyone flushing a toilet in urban Australia today does so confident that they’ll never again see the thing they’ve flushed. They probably also think they are causing minimal environmental harm, thanks to our well-designed wastewater treatment plants. But is our lack of concern for sewage pollution well founded? Recents events in northern Tasmania suggest not.
Bentley Systems, a provider of software solutions for sustaining infrastructure, has announced standardisation on the company’s ProjectWise to provide collaboration, work sharing and engineering content management for Thames Water’s Thames Tideway Tunnel project. The project is addressing the issue of combined sewage discharges from London’s Victorian-era sewer system that enter the River Thames.
Corrosion of sewer assets is a worldwide phenomenon, particularly in countries with a warm climate. It is estimated that concrete sewer pipes in many areas of Australia are being corroded at an average rate of 1-3 mm per year or more. Hence, instead of providing service for 50 to 100 years as recorded in water utilities asset registers, sewer pipes are failing after 20 years or less. Internal surveys by several major water utilities in Australia show that the abnormally fast depreciation of assets and the mitigation of corrosion problems alone are costing the Australian water industry hundreds of millions of dollars a year.
Upping sticks and moving from Belfast, Ireland, to New Zealand is a significant lifestyle change for anyone, but MWH Global water and wastewater engineer Chris Maguire* never thought it would bring him face to face with the challenge of helping to rebuild an earthquake-torn city.
Today’s sewer maintenance tools are special cameras and milling robots.
CST Wastewater Solutions, in a partnership with Smith and Loveless, is providing grit seminars in Brisbane, Adelaide and Sydney on 19, 20 and 21 February. The seminars will focus on all the important aspects of grit removal.
The latest CST Rotary Screen is suitable for high-efficiency screening of industrial and municipal wastewaters.
Bundaberg Regional Council required a more efficient and robust solution for its Woodgate Vacuum Sewer Station. The overall efficiency of the plant was being hampered by the performance of the lobe-style pump. Hydro Innovations recommended the installation a Gormann-Rupp Ultra VS3A60-B (3″) two-stage, self-priming, centrifugal sewage pump.
Many pump users buy various brands of progressing cavity or peristaltic hose pumps which can cause issues when it comes to obtaining spare parts. NOV Mono Pumps has designed a comprehensive range of common wearing parts, suitably named 'Universal Spare Parts', specifically designed to suit mainstream progressing cavity pump brands.
