The Eco-Care grey wastewater diverter system is a compact (1/3 m2), semi-automatic system that works by collecting water from a household's shower, bath and washing machine. When the wastewater is diverted into the system, the pump is activated, pumping the grey water to the garden and lawn. If the system is not used over a 24 h period, the timer automatically dumps the residual grey water.
Reusing secondary treated water or plant effluent possesses numerous dirty water problems. Problems include plugging of spray nozzles; fouling of pipes; blinding of sensors, scrubbers, membranes, R/O, and analysers; wearing of pump gland seals; and plugging of irrigation heads. Such issues cause unscheduled shutdown for maintenance and cleaning.
The Keller Leo-Record and Leo-Record EEx ia are compact digital instruments that measure both pressure and temperature. They are suitable for use in factories and pipelines. Up to 57,000 readings can be stored in their non-volatile memory.
The VRTX chemical-free water-treatment technology is based on colliding two rotating water streams at very high speeds and the resulting hydrodynamic cavitation causing intense, microscopic localised extremes of temperature and pressure. Chemical reactions are forced to proceed under these conditions.
Insite IG has developed a dissolved oxygen measurement system, based on optical fluorescence technology. The system is designed for the harsh environment of wastewater treatment plants, and has also found use in other applications such as environmental monitoring, process waters and aquaculture.
