In the water and wastewater treatment industry, advancements in automation and optimization equipment are pivotal. Control systems for municipal lift stations are now employing cutting-edge technologies for energy-efficient pump control, significantly reducing energy consumption and enhancing safety. And online wet chemistry analyzers are transforming water quality monitoring with their high accuracy, low maintenance and efficient reagent usage. Innovations like those below are crucial in improving operational efficiency, ensuring regulatory compliance, and reducing costs.

PRIMEX Eco Smart Station
The Eco Smart Station control system from PRIMEX provides a safe, energy-efficient solution for optimum pump control in municipal lift station applications. It uses the latest technology in VFD, microprocessor-based controller, data storage and communication capabilities available. It achieves up to 30% energy savings using an efficiency auto-tune algorithm that searches for the pump speed that will consume the least amount of energy per gallons of liquid pumped. It is also housed in a multiple-compartment Arc Armor Enclosure, reducing the risk of injury resulting from electric shock and exposure to arc flash. It features the Energy View controller powered by kW Logix software, an energy-efficient solution. The color touch screen HMI provides level control, pump alternation, flow monitoring, data logging, alarm logging, historical trending and comes equipped with a SD memory card for data storage and download. It is available in 29 models, from 10 to 100 hp. 844-477-4639;

YSI, a Xylem brand Alyza IQ
Alyza IQ from YSI, a Xylem brand is an online wet chemistry analyzer platform developed to help ensure regulatory compliance, improve operational efficiency, and reduce costs. It is designed to minimize analyzer maintenance while maximizing accuracy and reliability. It features automatic cleanings and calibrations, no-spill reagent containers, and uses only 5 to 15 microliters of reagent per measurement, resulting in fewer reagent changes over time. The analyzer platform has a fully automated temperature control system with a double-insulated cabinet to maximize performance regardless of where it’s deployed. The Alyza NH4 continuously measures ammonium and can be used to help control ammonia-based aeration and ensure regulatory compliance. The Alyza PO4 continuously measures orthophosphate to monitor and control chemical-P removal, verify bio-P removal and help ensure regulatory compliance. 937-767-7241;
