Editor's Note: Hundreds of exhibitors displayed water and wastewater equipment — from the tried-and-true to latest and greatest — at WEFTEC 2015, presented by the Water Environment Federation in Chicago on Sept. 27-30. Watch for the Innovation logo to learn more about new products displayed at the clean-water industry’s flagship exhibition and conference.

Wet prime pumps. Pioneer Pump, a company of Franklin Electric, introduced the GT Series of wet prime pumps, able to run full diameter at more than 2,000 rpm, making them well suited for municipal and industrial wastewater management. Designed for long life, they have ductile iron volutes and impellers and oversized 17-4 PH stainless steel shafts. The hydraulic design includes a radically tapered stuffing box with strake, resulting in a cooler seal face, low abrasion and long seal life. The pumps can operate at high pressures without a secondary pump. They also can run at high speeds and resist damage from cavitation without the added cost of a booster pump. 503/266-4115; pioneerpump.com

Pumping with accuracy. Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group offered the Bredel APEX 35 hose pump, rated for a maximum flow of 23.4 gpm. The APEX series is engineered for low maintenance with a seal-less, valveless design, precisions-machine hose elements, direct-coupled drive and greater flow per revolution. The company also offered the qdos60 peristaltic metering pump, extending the range of that product family to include flow rates from 0.001 to 15 gallons per hour. 800/282-8823; www.wmftg.com

Total nitrogen removal. World Water Works announced agreements with DC Water and Hampton Roads Sanitation District to bring its AvN technology to market. The AvN process balances ammonia oxidizing and nitrogen oxidizing bacteria, allowing wastewater treatment systems to achieve very low total nitrogen discharges while diverting carbon for beneficial uses. It is designed to provide rapid return on investment by letting users manage influent carbon, minimize alkalinity demands and reduce the system energy requirement. 800/607-7873; www.worldwaterworks.com.

Quick-configure control. Singer Valve introduced the SCP-TP single-process control panel, designed to complement the company’s dual solenoid control valve. The unit allows quick and easy configuration for single-process and on/off applications. The controller reads and compares the process feedback 4-20 mA signal to the desired setting (setpoint) signal. It then accurately positions the valve to bring the process variable back to the setpoint. The device has data logging features that can log all sensor feedback and setpoint data with a time stamp. 604/594-5404; www.singervalve.com

Phosphorus analyzer. Endress+Hauser displayed the Liquiline System CA80PH online orthophosphate measurement device for precise dosing of precipitants in wastewater treatment. It enables plug-and-play of up to four Memosens sensors, simplifying installation. Automatic calibration and cleaning and low reagent consumption help save on operating costs. Advanced diagnostics with remote access fosters process safety and provides support in delivering process documentation to the authorities. It can be upgraded simply by adding modules and connecting Memosens sensors. It is available with both standardized measuring methods covering all applications: molybdenum blue method and molybdate vanadate yellow. 317/535-7138; www.us.endress.com

Service-in-place pump. Netzsch Pumps North America presented a full service-in-place version of its Nemo progressive cavity pump for wear-intensive applications. The service-in-place design provides full access to all rotating parts. Users can open the in-service pump housing, dismantle all rotating parts, and install them again without disconnecting the pump from the piping or removing the motor. The rotor-stator unit can be lifted out after opening the inspection cover on the pump housing, without any special tools. Because the rotor-stator unit can be removed sideways or from above, service time is minimized. The pumps are available in 11 styles with four rotor/stator geometries and a selection of engineered joints that can be tailored to suit specific applications. 610/363-8010; www.pumps.netzsch.com
