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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies
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.
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.
