Water Command Center
Hach Homeland Security Technologies' CityGuard Virtual Command Center is a security network portal, command center, and real-time water distribution monitoring system. This device provides a bi-directional monitoring and control system that integrates the sensor data from water quality monitoring points that are strategically located throughout a community's distribution system, allowing water utility personnel to minimize their response time by simultaneously viewing critical real-time water quality data from any Internet browser at any location.
UV Disinfection System
Calgon Carbon Corp.'s C3500™D Ultraviolet Disinfection system is designed specifically for water reuse applications. Computational Fluid Dynamics were used to optimize the germicidal efficiency of the reactor by varying the device's lamp spacing as well as the size, shape, and quantity of its delta-shaped mixing devices. The patent-pending design increases the hydraulic efficiency of the reactor by uniformly exposing the water to the required UV dose while minimizing head loss.
Odor Absorbing Gel
OMI Industries' Ecosorb™ SprayGel is a broad spectrum odor neutralizer that can be sprayed directly onto the surface of the odor-generating area, such as sludge and landfill materials. The gel combines the powerful odor neutralizing capability of the standard liquid Ecosorb product with a low molecular weight polymer matrix that evaporates over several days. Total elimination of odors coming out of undigested sludge has been seen through this capping process.
Hazmat Spill Training
Excal Visual LLP's Spills & Skills: Non-Emergency HazMat Spill Response
training video package is designed to show personnel the correct response and cleanup procedures for non-emergency (non-HAZWOPER) releases of hazardous materials and wastes. The package includes a CD and an 18.5 minute DVD, a trainer's guide, and employee quiz, SiteCast™, a PowerPoint template for site-specific training, and a Spill Locker Poster that summarizes procedures and contains a spill locker inventory list.
Designed for use in areas where landscape-based treatment isn't practical, KriStar Enterprises Inc.'s FILTER-POD is a media filter that is integrated with a subsurface water storage system. Flow capacities are set by selecting the appropriate quantity of modules and placing them within the footprint of the water storage system. Decentralizing the treatment components eliminates or reduces the need for additional pipe, large concrete vaults, and a crane to set the vault.
Waste Management Monitoring
SmartBin monitoring technology allows those with the responsibility of managing bin-fill to know the exact fill level in real time via the SmartBin advanced Web portal. The technology has up-to-the-minute knowledge of the chain of possession and disposition of materials, which allows companies with bin-essential businesses to track and schedule pickups for a more efficient route. SmartBin’s solution measures bin fill-level by using infrared or ultrasonic technology sensors to determine the distance from the top of the waste to the top of the bin container.
Vertical Aboveground Storage Tanks
Highland Tank’s aboveground vertical tanks are an ideal solution for storage of various liquid products. The tanks provide safe storage while using the least amount of valuable real estate for petroleum products, chemicals, asphalt and asphalt emulsions, ethanol, biodiesel, fertilizers or liquid wastes. The carbon or stainless steel storage tanks range in volume from 185 to 49,500 gallons and are available with VOC compliant exterior coatings, specialized interior linings, and many options and accessories.
Mettler Toledo’s LabX 2010 software release supports XP and XS Balances as well as the new line of the company's density meters and refractometers. The software’s One Click application solutions help users perform routine tasks with a single touch of the instrument dynamic display. The software manages the entire application including automatically performing all calculations, guiding users through the workflow and report generation. It also has the capacity for secure data storage and data export/import with full regulatory compliance, if required.
Sulfide Ion Detector Tubes
The Gastec Sulfide Ion in Solution Detector Tube No. 211 from Nextteq detects sulfide ion levels in solution. With the easy-to-use system, direct-reading tubes produce a quantitative color-stain that quickly pinpoints problem areas in two to three minutes. The calibration scale, printed directly on each tube, provides on-the-spot results. The Gastec sulfide ion tube requires no color comparison chart or laboratory equipment to determine results. The colorstain ends with a clearly defined line of demarcation to further eliminate confusion.
Mettler Toledo’s new range of multi-parameter portable meters for measurements of pH, conductivity, dissolved oxygen and ion concentration are based on the rugged design of SevenGo and are watertight according to IP67. This means that the instruments or any other part of the equipment will withstand dusty, dirty or wet environments. The SevenGo Duo SG23 is a routine dual-channel pH/conductivity meter, the SG78 is professional meter for pH/ ion/conductivity and the SG68 is a professional meter for pH/ ion/ dissolved oxygen.
Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies
Ceramic Ultrafiltration Technology
Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies’ CeraMem ceramic ultrafiltration technology recovers 95 to 99 percent of the spent caustic solution from the cleaning section, reducing waste treatment requirements and hauling volumes to 1 to 5 percent of the original treatment and hauling effort. The benefits of the system include savings related to reduced make-up cleaner usage and spent caustic treatment, lower waste hauling fees, and reduced handling in the alkaline cleaning process.
Reusable Facepiece Respirator
3M’s Ultimate FX Full Facepiece Reusable Respirator FF-400 Series delivers comfort and durability, while enabling a wide peripheral view, quick assembly and disassembly, and an easy-to-clean lens. The respirator features a lens coated with Scotchgard Protector to help resist certain dirt, paint and stains. The respirator design includes a cradle that helps with donning the respirator and reducing pressure and hair pulling. Also included is a six-strap head harness configuration for a secure fit that reduces further pressure points.
The Waterpilot FMX21 level sensor from Endress+Hauser has stainless steel housing and a flush-mounted process diaphragm, making it ideal for measuring the level of sludge and wastewater. It also can measure temperature with an optional Pt 100 sensor. A corrosion-resistant, coated version is available for use in aggressive environments. The sensor uses a ceramic cell to measure pressure. Pressure changes cause a change in capacitance, which the sensor’s electronics convert into a 4-20mA signal that is linear to the level of the liquid.
Gas Well Production Optimization
Control Microsystems’ SCADAPack ProductionPLUS is a pad-wide optimization solution that combines EFM and plunger lift for more than 30 wells per pad. It runs in all SCADAPack 4203 gas flow computers and 300-Series controllers. Each is ideally suited to support Electronic Flow Measurement and production optimization applications while performing control and monitoring tasks. When the 4203 is used at each well head, it provides a distributed intelligence architecture that addresses the downside of having a single point of failure in traditional pad-wide optimization.
