Delft University of Technology research has discovered a method that could drastically change the way we purify water within a few years. Delft, in partnership with DHV engineering bureau, has developed a compact and environmentally-friendly purification method, in which aerobic bacteria form granules that sink quickly.
Enviroequip is hosting a series of ground water seminars in August to be presented by David Kaminski, international expert in ground water sampling methods.
The smart safety instrumented system (SIS) from Emerson Process Management has been enhanced with TÜV certification of the Micro Motion SIS Coriolis meters. This certification allows users to boost plant availability by using the Micro Motion Coriolis flow and density measurement technology in safety instrumented systems in up to SIL-3 loops, per IEC 61508.
The Photometer 8000 is designed using the latest electronic and optical technologies. It is a direct reading colorimeter which covers a full range of tests for clean and wastewater using tablet reagents and Tubetests. Applications include effluent, drinking water, cooling towers and boiler plant testing.
The ecoClean Truck is capable of washing 600 m2 of hardstand areas while using and recycling about 1200 L/h of water. The cleaning equipment operates at 5000 psi pressure and the truck does not rely on external power supply or mains water during a normal 10 h work day.
Dutch researcher Phil Ham has developed a mathematical model to calculate the natural degradation capacity of polluted groundwater.
The PG Instruments range of atomic absorption spectrophotometers includes the PGI 990 which is capable of flame only, graphite furnace only or combined modes, with automatic interchange between modes. Also automatically driven are the eight-lamp turret, burner height, gas flow rate adjustment, beam splitter positioning and switchover of spectral bandwidth (five choices).
Tekleen self-cleaning filters provide users with automatic self-cleaning without interruption to the flow. A differential pressure switch monitors the pressure differential between the inlet and outlet which increases as dirt particulate is trapped by the screen. When the preset differential pressure value is reached the filter performs a cleaning cycle that lasts only 5 s and uses less than 10 L of water without any interruption to the flow.
The Kelair-RRS range features a robust industrial-rated solution to rainwater reuse. The system includes automatic towns' main backup in the event of power failure or insufficient rain/stormwater supply. Due to the flow and pressure ratings of the system, any pump or pump system can be connected.
The Master Plumbers Association (MPAQ) is calling for more community education and awareness for the safe use of greywater in domestic gardens.
A Sydney business executive has donated $1 million to create Australia's first Chair of Water Management, based at UNSW.
Eligible organisations across the country will have the opportunity to invest in major water resource projects with the announcement today of a new call for proposals under the federal governmentâ€™s Water Smart Australia program.
