Flexible Composite Pipe Coupling

Flexible Composite Pipe Coupling

Victaulic’s Style 171 flexible composite pipe coupling is an engineered composite coupling for use where corrosive conditions exist. Ideal for reverse osmosis (RO) skids in vertical and horizontal installations, the Style 171 enables quick and simple installation and provides substantial gains in productivity. 

Featuring Victaulic installation-ready technology, the Style 171 eases and speeds installation. The Style 171 does not require disassembly prior to installation; the coupling is simply pushed onto the pipe end as a fully assembled unit and tightened using standard hand tools. The coupling’s design reduces labor hours to complete system installation, eliminates loose components that could be dropped or lost, and reduces installation clearance requirements. 

The Style 171 creates a flexible pipe joint, accommodating expansion, contraction, and deflection in the piping system. The injection molded engineered composite housing offers corrosion and UV resistance, and is lighter in weight than ductile iron and stainless steel couplings.

The Style 171 coupling can be used to join standard roll- or cut-grooved PVC and cut-grooved HDPE pipe, and can also be used on stainless steel and FRP. The Style 171 is available in 1½ to 4-inch (40 to 100 millimeter) sizes, and can withstand pressures of up to 150 psi (1,034 kPa), depending on pipe material and wall thickness.

      H2gO Water Purifier

      Aqua Research’s H2gO Purifier is a handheld, 3-ounce device that makes water safe to drink with only 2 button clicks. The purifier never needs replacement parts and was designed for extreme environments. The water treatment device is ideal for campers, travelers, and natural disasters. For a limited time, the water purifier is also available at the company’s Indiegogo campaign.

      According to the World Health Organization, over 3.4 million people die each year from waterborne disease. Water disinfection is one of the most effective interventions to save lives, but a large proportion of people in poor economies stop disinfecting due to complexity and on-going cost. In contrast, the H2gO Purifier is sustainable even for people at the poverty line because it is both simple to use and free to operate.

      The H2gO Purifier works by converting a few grains of common salt to a powerful disinfecting solution in a matter of seconds. It treats 1 to 20 liters of water at a time. It’s driven by a cell phone battery that can be charged by the integrated solar panel or USB, able to treat 300 liters of water per charge. Only one hour of sunlight makes over 1 gallon of safe water. There is even an LED flashlight for night-time operation.

                    PersulfOx2 Product Feature

                    PersulfOx Catalyzed Persulfate

                    PersulfOx Catalyzed Persulfate

                    REGENESIS, a global leader in advanced technologies for contaminated site remediation, has announced PersulfOx Catalyzed Persulfate. This new environmental technology is a patented, sodium persulfate-based in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) reagent designed specifically for groundwater and soil remediation at contaminated sites, including brownfields.

                    Traditionally, sodium persulfate has been used and activated with the addition of a separate component such as heat, chelated metals, hydrogen peroxide, or a caustic base. These activation processes are inherently complex, costly and can pose certain health and safety risks. By design, PersulfOx simplifies the activation process and reduces on-site health and safety liability by offering environmental professionals a new, all-in-one reagent with a built-in catalyst. There is no hazardous activation process, and performance is equivalent to the best alternative persulfate treatments available today. In the field, the material is easily mixed with water and applied into the contaminated area using common subsurface injection techniques or soil mixing tools.

                    Additionally, the PersulfOx catalyst further increases the product’s effectiveness by providing a microscopic heterogeneous surface where the contaminant and oxidant can converge and oxidation reactions can occur repeatedly. This unique and highly efficient “surface-mediated oxidation” process, first introduced in 2007 with RegenOx, the company’s first ISCO technology, provides several contaminant-reducing benefits, including:

                    · Increased efficiency, as it brings oxidant and contaminant together, isolating the oxidation reaction from soil matrix effects,

                    · Direct chemical oxidation,

                    · The formation of sulfate-based free radicals which in turn oxidize the contaminant, and

                    · The formation of ancillary free radicals and other oxidizing species which destroy contaminants within the contaminated matrix.

                    Further details, including the PersulfOx brochure, product specifications, and access to technical bulletins, are available at the REGENESIS website.

                              Vapor-Tight Groundwater System

                              Abanaki Corporation'  Vapor-Tight, Explosion Proof Groundwater Remediation System is designed to keep explosive vapors from being vented into the atmosphere. The oil skimming system consists of Abanaki's PetroXtractor belt oil skimmer equipped with explosion-proof electrical components, vapor-tight belt housing and a self-sealing, well-casing mounting clamp. Optimum removal rates are achieved using the patent-pending LFO Fuzzy2 belt made from a special oil-attracting material whose tiny hairs increase surface area and collect light hydrocarbons efficiently. Typical applications are remediating oil contamination from groundwater using existing monitoring or remediation wells. The oil skimmer wiper blades scrape oil from the belt and discharge it into an Oil Concentrator, a small gravity separator that removes any trace water from the skimmed oil. The waste oil flows out of the Concentrator into a transfer tank where a pump activated by float switches sends the oil to a customer-provided waste oil vessel.
