Tension fabric buildings from Legacy Building Solutions provide a high level of flexibility for a variety of building applications. They use a durable, rigid frame in place of hollow-tube, open web truss hoop framing. The strength of the structural steel frame provides the ability to easily customize buildings to the exact width, length and height required. In addition to long clear spans, the buildings have straight sidewalls that maximize the useable square footage inside the structure. The design allows for the ability to add lean-tos, mezzanines and sidewall doors. The structures are engineered to provide desired overhangs or handle additional loads for items such as sprinklers and conveyors. The solid structural steel I-beams are not vulnerable to unseen corrosion originating inside a tube. There are multiple coating options available for all steel components, including hot-dip galvanizing, primer and powder-coat paint. 877-259-1528;



ABC (Anoxic Bio[logical]filter Clarification) clarifiers from BioMicrobics are a family of products used in tertiary treatment systems to remove excess nitrogen (ABC-N), phosphorus (ABC-P) and additional solids (ABC-C) for specialty applications requiring exceptional effluent quality. The most popular is the ABC-N denitrification device used with a carbon feed system that supplies a carbon source; the ABC-N promotes the growth of bacteria that denitrifies nitrified wastewater from most wastewater flows. The recirculation pump and assembly mixes nitrates and carbon throughout the media inside the tank. Bacteria grows on the media and uses the nitrates as oxygen, transforming the nitrates into harmless nitrogen gas. This continuous processing of the biomass with food and oxygen is efficient in a suitable environment to achieve high levels of nitrogen reduction. 800-753-3278;

The RAS Booster Ring creates highly concentrated, uniform return activated sludge to save pumping energy. The ring is also self-cleaning and features maintenance-free seals. Sealless designs are also available. The algae control system consists of an algae brush cleaner and/or algae spray cleaner. 717-763-0500;


The Spiraflo clarifier from Lakeside is a peripheral feed clarifier designed for the removal of suspended solids in a primary, secondary or tertiary clarification system. Wastewater enters the outer perimeter of the clarifier tank and is directed along the narrow raceway formed by the skirt and the outer wall. This flow pattern dissipates the wastewater’s hydraulic energy as it flows around the raceway, eventually spiraling down underneath the skirt and into the main settling area. The flow travels inward from the skirt toward the center of the tank, coinciding with the direction of the sludge, and the clarified water rises into the centrally located effluent weir trough. The combination of the spiraling flow pattern and the skirt eliminates all possibility of short-circuiting and provides better utilization of the total tank volume for more effective settling. 630-837-5640;


The Parkson Corp. Lamella EcoFlow inclined plate settler eliminates the area of interference at the bottom of plates and allows for 100% utilization of the plate settling area, translating to an increased capacity of up to 25% of the existing footprint. When compared to traditional clarifiers, it provides higher effluent quality, enhanced sludge thickening, less chemical usage downstream and an easy, cost-effective option to retrofit/upgrade older installations. In this process, chemically treated and flocculated water enters a tank and flows upward between a pack of inclined plates. Solids fall to the plate surface and, by gravity, slide down to a sludge collection hopper. Clarified effluent flows through orifice holes and exits the top of the settler. It can be used in municipal and industrial applications such as potable-water clarification, industrial process water, sand filter backwash, metal finishing and mining. 888-727-5766;


The Model R OXIGEST treatment system from Smith & Loveless provides stable operation and flexible process options for high-strength wastewater or larger flows up to 5 mgd. The field-erected design encompasses complete aeration, clarification and advanced treatment processes while allowing these units to be individually separated and controlled. The system achieves advanced nutrient removal and produces pristine effluent quality suitable for water reuse and direct or indirect discharge. Its concentric tankage maximizes space efficiency in its footprint, thereby preserving facility land for other key plant operations. Multiple aeration zones can be employed to provide specific activated sludge processes for desired treatment levels, including multistage aeration, complete mixed, plug-flow and nitrification/denitrification. Integral treatment process steps can include grit removal, flow equalization, reaeration, tertiary filtration, chlorination, dechlorination and sludge storage. 800-898-9122;
