It eliminates hydrogen sulfide and volatle organic compounds without using hazardous chemicals. The system can handle airstreams ranging from 50 to 1,000 cfm and comes pre-installed on a stainless steel skid, making installation possible in less than a day.
Moyno Inc.’s metering pump has enhanced pumping elements and VFD/motor controls that expand the scope of application and optimize economical and efficient performance, particularly when dosing, sampling, and metering low-flow liquids. The VFD/motor controls improve metering accuracy and repeatability. The pump’s progressing cavity design results in a flow free from pulsation and variation in velocity and volume, which prevents waste and mixture imbalance.
Hydro-Guard’s telemetry controlled, SCADA compatible, S.M.A.R.T Flushing System is designed for maximum water conservation as well as two way/real-time management and water quality improvement. One operator can manage multiple sites throughout a distribution system remotely, viewing data feeds and communicating with each site in virtual real time. The system flushes water distribution lines when the residual level drops below the user-defined disinfectant level; on a pre-set schedule by selecting day(s) of the week, time of day duration of flush; at the most convenient times for customers; and with the least amount of discharged water possible
Bell & Gossett
Bell & Gossett’s Impact™ series of high-efficiency submersible wastewater pumps has a self-cleaning impeller and casing. The pumps are configured to process solids more easily and to reduce clogging while improving hydraulic efficiency. The air-filled motor, dual mechanical seal, and seal chamber work to enhance overall pump efficiency and durability. Less wear of pump components over longer periods of time reduces both maintenance and energy costs. The pump’s seals feature better leak detection and are designed with hard faces that endure abrasive conditions in wastewater applications.
Wilden Pump and Engineering Co.
Wilden’s Advanced metal series T1510 air-operated double-diaphragm pumps, known as the Brahma, are designed for harsh solid-handling applications. This completely submersible product is a 76mm (3 inch) flap-valve pump with bolted construction. The pump’s large internal clearances and top-suction/bottom-discharge operation eliminate clogging, which allows for flow rates up to 977 lpm (258 gpm) and maximum pressures to 8.6 bar (125 psig) with a maximum dry-suction lift capability of up to 7.4m (24.4 feet).
Videx’s CyberKey Vault 20 is a smart key cabinet. Electronic keys that are stored in it contain no permissions to open any locks in a facility. Rather, when an employee needs a key, his or her RFID card or PIN must be entered to open the vault and request a key to be programmed and released. The key that is released contains the access permissions specific to that person. The product also automatically sends audit reports to management.
The EWP Prestige is the latest incarnation of AquaEWP's proprietary electronic water purification systems based on Capacitive Deionization and the Flow-Through Capacitor. Designed for industrial use in treating contaminated water without the need for expensive membrane-based filtration, the system can be configured with multiple units in series to treat water up to 35,000 ppm (seawater), or can be configured in parallel to treat from one-to-100 gallons per minute. This product was entered in Environmental Protection's 2010 New Product of the Year awards program under the Water category.
Excal Visual LLP's Stormwater Pollution Prevention: A Drop In The Bucket
training video package is designed to allow environmental professionals to train employees about stormwater pollution prevention and response in order to minimize contamination of run-off. The package includes a CD and a 16-minute DVD, a trainer's guide, an employee quiz, employee quick reference booklets, a SiteCast PowerPoint template for site-specific training, and hard hat stickers to remind trainees to keep aware of SWWPPP requirements. This product was entered in Environmental Protection's New Product of the Year award program under the Stormwater category.
Catalytic Products International Inc.
Catalytic Products International Inc.'s VANGUARD Ammonia Abatement System is custom-manufactured as one modular package that features a combined catalytic oxidizer and NOx reduction system. The system can be economically applied with many industrial and chemical processes that exhaust ammonia and organic compounds where NOx emissions are of concern and are designed to remove ammonia (and ammonia derivatives) from either a liquid waste stream or from a vapor exhaust. This product was entered in Environmental Protection's 2010 New Product of the Year award program under the Air Quality category.
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.
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.
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.
