Automation24 VEGAPULS C 21

The VEGAPULS C 21 from Automation24 is a noncontact, radar level sensor utilized frequently in wastewater management applications. The device has been used to monitor water levels in pumping stations and for monitoring flow in open channels and dams. It is made of resistant and durable materials to help it survive harsh industrial environments, dealing with environmental factors like a humid environment, condensation on the sensor body and foamy water. It has a measuring range of up to 50 feet and outputs a radar frequency of 80 GHz to keep a narrow 8-degree beam angle. This sensor has features that can be edited through the VEGA software, either via Bluetooth on smartphones or on a computer for more nuanced tweaks to see the true level and flow of the water that is being treated. 800-250-6772;

Valmet Flow Control Flowrox FXM

Flowrox FXM metering pumps from Valmet Flow Control are suitable for but not limited to chemical dosing applications that require accurate metering. FXM2 and FXM3 series pumps have only one wear-resistant part (tube assembly) in contact with corrosive or abrasive mediums. The pumps have a low consumption of spare parts, which allows reduced maintenance and downtime to improve process performance and provides accurate dosing. They ensure accurate dosing by the positive displacement of the tube bore with zero slip that produces the same volume on every cycle. There is no variation due to the discharge pressure condition. The compression points of the tube act as a self-cleaning check valve without clogging. This helps eliminate the risk of vapor lock. They have expanded logic programming, functionality and have a higher pumping capacity. Other features include contactless external leak sensors for tube failure detection. They have upgraded motors and control circuits to ensure accuracy even at the lowest speed. 678-772-9584;

Water/Wastewater Reuse

Anua AiraSymBIO

AiraSymBIO from Anua is an onsite, closed-loop odor treatment system that harvests raw wastewater, filters and then treats it for use as the irrigation water in the multistage biological odor treatment system. The system utilizes a water resource already present, thus reducing operating costs, uses no freshwater, and allows the biological odor control system to function as intended, as many areas around the country do not have potable water available at the lift or pump station site or have water conservation initiatives in place, which prohibits the use of biological treatment technologies. 346-225-8033;

Headworks International Ultracell

UltraCell from Headworks International combines MBBR and ultra filtration processes without a need for a secondary clarifier or a DAF to remove the bulk of the TSS. Typically, a biological treatment system is followed by a secondary solids separation process and a tertiary filtration step to produce reuse quality water. UltraCell was developed with an extensive pilot study of its MBBR process with a ceramic membrane. Due to the very low TSS in the MBBR process relative to the MBR, the process requires minimal power and cleaning chemicals.  Moreover, the flux rate through the membrane is increased by a factor of four, quadrupling the lifetime of the membranes. The overall capital and operating costs of the process are significantly lower than the MBR process, while the footprint of both processes is approximately the same. 713-647-6667;
