Pump Controls

APG Neuros Advanced Aeration Control System

APG Neuros’ Advanced Aeration Control System empowers water resource recovery facilities to take control of their biological secondary treatment processes. It uses self-learning algorithms referred to as Model Predictive Control to compute the oxygen demand to deliver performance from the entire aeration system. Including optional ammonia-based aeration control unlocks further savings potential by dynamically changing the dissolved oxygen setpoints based on the loading to deliver a reliable and stable ammonia treatment process at the lowest oxygen level, reducing the oxygen requirements for treatment leads to significant reduction in power consumption and therefore reduces the operating costs by as much as 20%. Its Model Predictive Control analyzes historical operational data and raw trends that it uses to enable Advanced Aeration Control to compensate for the nonlinearities inherent to the secondary treatment process. The result is stable and accurate control over the full range of operating conditions without the need for manual re-tuning. 866-592-9482;

Halogen Valve Systems Terminator Actuator

The Terminator Actuator from Halogen Valve Systems can be used on chlorine ton containers as well 150-pound cylinders to instantly stop the flow of chlorine in case of an emergency.
