AQUAFIX AQUABACxt biological larvicide
AQUABACxt from AQUAFIX is a professional grade, EPA-registered biological larvicide for use against midge flies and the myriad of issues they cause within a plant. It contains a species of bacteria called bacillus thuringiensis, an approved larvicide for controlling red worms and midge flies in wastewater treatment plants and waterways. AQUABACxt can either be poured into the aeration basin or secondary clarifiers, depending on where the red worm problem is. It also works extremely well in UV disinfection chambers. AQUABACxt has also been proven effective against bristle worms (aeolosoma) and water fleas in the field. AQUABACxt contains six complex biological larvicide compounds (endotoxins) that are highly effective against red worms but safe for fish, birds, mammals and other life-forms. With the endotoxins, it is difficult for red worms to build a resistance, giving it an advantage over single endotoxin larvicides.; 888-757-9577

Ostara’s Nutrient Recovery Solution from Evoqua
Ostara’s Pearl system from Evoqua is a fluidized bed reactor designed to recover phosphorus from municipal and industrial waste streams through the controlled precipitation of crystalline struvite. The growth of struvite (magnesium ammonium phosphate) is facilitated by the addition of magnesium. This allows nutrients to crystallize into eco-friendly fertilizer granules which are harvested, dried and then distributed and sold by Ostara as Crystal Green Fertilizer. This cost-effective nutrient recovery solution converts wastewater treatment plants into resource recovery facilities. 800-466-7873;

ATC Diversified Electronics SENSERT remote monitoring system
An affordable remote process monitoring technology makes it easy for water departments and wastewater treatment plants to monitor and measure operations without committing to a costly condition monitoring system that’s only compatible with proprietary sensors. SENSERT, from ATC Diversified Electronics, is a remote monitoring and alert system in which a variety of sensors can be hardwired directly to the SENSERT base unit or wirelessly connected via the SENSERT remote I/O. SENSERT monitors use the sensors that are already in place, giving operators total control over the kinds of sensors they use in the future. SENSERT can monitor many conditions including level, temperature, pressure, flow and current, as well as vibration, presence of voltage and others. It works throughout water and wastewater treatment plants. SENSERT’s unique capabilities, ease of use and low price make it a ready solution for water and wastewater treatment plants. 304-387-1200;

OZ Lifting Dyno-Hoist lever hoist
OZ Lifting Products introduces the first lever hoist with an integrated dynamometer to the North American market, the Dyno-Hoist. It gives users a real-time reading of the load — in kilograms or pounds — they are applying to the hoist, whether during a lifting or pulling application. An overload alert is triggered at 126%. The hoist is available in 0.75, 1.5-, 3-, 6- and 9-ton capacity, matching the ranges of the company’s industrial and premium (overload protected) lever hoist offerings. Dyno-Hoist’s dynamometer fitting can also retrofit to either of the industrial or premium lever hoists. Other features include all-steel construction; steel handle with rubber grip; zinc-plated load chain; forged alloy steel hooks; and fully enclosed gearing. Dyno-Hoist meets or exceeds CE, ASME B30.21, and AS 1418.2 standards. Standard AA batteries offer a runtime of 150 hours, but the product can be plugged into a 115/1/60 outlet. Each hoist is load-tested and arrives with a test certificate, one-year warranty and a free set of latches. 888-617-3579;

Val-Matic Air Valve sizing software
Val-Matic’s Air Valve sizing program is a web-based software designed to aid in selecting AWWA air valves along a pipeline. The program calculates the collapse pressure, slope and gravity flow in the pipe and allows the user to save design information specific to their pump, water pipeline or wastewater force main. Recommendations are then given for air valve locations, sizes and model numbers for a pipeline and pump discharge locations. 630-941-7600;

HF scientific MCX monochloramine analyzer
