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.
Becker products are used in the construction of vacuum sewer collection systems. They can be used as an alternative to gravity systems as they do not rely on the natural gradient for the transportation of sewerage. They offer an odour-free environment, with the ability to transport effluent uphill, and use less water for flushing.
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 CO48 Powered Totalisor is an intelligent counter that generates a total on its 8 digit 10 mm character height LED display from a contact closure or voltage source input. All functions of the instrument are programmable from the front panel by touch buttons with tactile feedback. Variables are stored in EEPROM memory.
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.
Emerson has announced it has acquired Bristol Babcock from FKI in England, for $121 million.
Installing on-site sewage systems in the wrong soil types can lead to potential environmental and health hazards, a Queensland University of Technology researcher has warned.
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.
Byogon PX-109 is a special extract of plant material and 100% organic. Developed by the University of Hawaii as a bio-stimulant it is designed to enhance cell growth. It is an alkaloid that acts to increase cellular metabolism of a wide variety of naturally occurring microorganisms. When combined in wastewater streams it releases Xeronine to re-invigorate existing bacteria in sewage to reduce odour, greases, and improve water quality.
The Kele Effluent Wastewater Treatment System (KEWT) was developed by Ben Kele during the course of his Master's study at the Central Queensland University. The system is a recirculating on-site wastewater treatment and effluent reuse technology. The wastewater undergoes primary treatment and is then further treated through a lined sub-surface recirculating filter combined with an evapotranspiration area. The mixture of filter materials can be adapted to suit the treatment requirements; the most commonly used components are sand, blue metal, river rock, zeolite, scoria and charcoal.
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'.
Green energy - power produced and harnessed during the treatment process in some sewage works in the United Kingdom - is helping to run operations within them.
