FEBCO ArmorTek advanced coating system

ArmorTek advanced coating system from FEBCO, a Watts Water Technologies brand, adds a layer of protection to its ductile iron backflow preventer valves. Three layers of protection create an effective barrier, increasing resistance to corrosion. First, an anti-corrosion primer slows the spread of corrosion should the metal substrate become exposed from wear or impact. Secondly, ArmorTek’s formulation inhibits the growth of bacteria that causes microbial-induced corrosion, limiting the growth of tubercles that can clog or foul downstream equipment. And lastly, the robust topcoat is designed to bond to the primer below, providing a high-strength barrier between the iron substrate and water. 


Zurn Industries 20XL pressure reducing valve

The 20XL pressure reducing valve from Zurn Industries is designed to reduce high-inlet pressure on potable waterlines. Its short lay length and compact design ensure ease of installation in residential or commercial applications from new construction to replacement. The balanced stem design enables the valve to react in a smooth and responsive manner when changes to system flow occur. The composite cartridge and bellhousing deliver superior strength and corrosion resistance. The stainless steel strainer screen catches debris, while the cartridge ensures easy repairs. The 20XL is available in 3/4- and 1-inch sizes with versatile connection options. 


ADS Environmental Services ECHO ultrasonic monitors

The ECHO from ADS Environmental Services has a 20-foot dynamic measurement range in an 8-inch pipe. It provides for total manhole visibility and introduces stabilized, near-top-side mounting. It is located just under the manhole cover, making installation easy with no manned entry. For reliable connectivity, the ECHO now features communication via the LTE-M network, which is designed and optimized for the Industrial Internet of Things. Its cloud-based software and advanced analytics platform provide fast, easy access and insights into the collections system’s behavior.
