Sampling system

Bioplex Technologies has announced the availability of the Porifera Robotic Environmental Monitoring Sentry for municipal and industrial water monitoring applications. Ideal for sampling areas/processes of concern over extended periods for chemicals, biologicals (microbes, larvae) and particles, the robotic sentinel sampler uses solid phase extraction media and can work 24/7 capturing, preparing and archiving samples for analysis back in the lab. The sampling system can be placed in-line to monitor process streams. When packaged in its environmental housing, it can sample from any water body for temporal and spatial mapping of chemical and biological contaminants.

Septic tanks

Infiltrator Systems has introduced two new septic tank sizes as part of the company's TW-Series Septic Tank Line. The new 300-gallon and 500-gallon tanks continue to feature consistent triple-wall thickness, long-term watertight performance, and a reinforced access port. The bright orange tanks are manufactured with a proprietary rotomolding process. The technology allows for precise, rotational molding that ensures consistent wall thickness resulting in superior strength. The tanks are available in sizes ranging from 300 gallons up to 1500 gallons. Their low profile make these tanks ideal for installations where a high water table or other site restrictions exist. Infiltrator Systems, Old Saybrook, CT, 800-221-4436,

Filter monitoring

New PVC filter monitors from Orange Research measure differential pressure to check the health of filter media in filtration equipment for water and corrosive liquids. The lower cost, smaller size monitors can save hundreds of dollars over the life of a system by indicating the optimum time to clean or replace filters. Savings can be even greater when major components are at risk. The single dial simplifies training, installation and maintenance while reducing operator errors. The filter monitors are available with 1" or 2.5" diameter plastic dial cases. Switches are standard options to alert users of alarm conditions. Orange Research, Milford, CT, 800-989-5657,

TOG/TPH analyzer

Biofuels producers who need to comply with the Clean Water Act can use InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers to monitor their oil and grease discharge levels. The analyzers provide on-site measurements in 10-15 minutes, eliminating the need to wait for off-site lab results. Measurement data obtained with the Model HATR-T2 will correlate to EPA Method 1664 and with the Model CVH to ASTM Method D 7066-04 and EPA Methods 413.2 and 418.1. Wilks Enterprise Inc., E. Norwalk, CT, 203-855-9136,

Spectroline, Westbury, NY, 800-274-8888,

Rupture discs

Continental Disc has launched the new HPX™ and HPX Sanitary rupture discs. The discs are scored, reverse acting rupture discs that can be pressurized from full vacuum up to 90% or 95% of the rated (marked) burst pressure under normal operating conditions. The discs are differential pressure relief devices that provide an instantaneous full-open, non-reclosing design for protecting equipment, vessels, systems and people from overpressure conditions. Both rupture discs are versatile and offered in a wide range of burst pressures, materials and sizes. Continental Disc Corp., Liberty, MO, 816-792-1500,

Modbus communication

ProSoft Technology's Modbus serial and Modbus TCP/IP C
ommunication Modules simplify integration between Rockwell Automation control systems and the many Modbus devices found in water and wastewater treatment plants, including pressure, temperature, pH monitors, turbidity regulators, level and flow devices. The available Add-on-Instructions work with the RSLogix programming software for implementation in a familiar programming environment. The Multi-Client module improves performance when controlling multiple servers on a Modbus TCP/IP network and supports up to 30 clients.

BWA Water Additives has released Bellacide 350 Anti-Microbial, a new multifunctional and surface active biocide which is based on TTPC. This biocide is broad spectrum in activity and successful against aerobic bacteria n, including Legionella npneumophila, aerobic bacteris, algae and fungi at very low dosages. It displays high surface activity while being low foaming, thus making it suitable for use in the cleaning of heavily fouled systems with special emphasis on microbiological slime removal. BWA Water Additives, 201-394-2476,

Sampling systems

Endress+Hauser offers a line of water sampling systems for monitoring influent and effluent at water/wastewater treatment plants and surface water sampling. The sampling line includes the Liquistation CSF48 stationary unit and the Liquiport CSP44 portable unit. The units accept "hot plug and play" inputs from up to two Memosens digital sensors to measure parameters such as nitrates, conductivity, oxygen, pH, ORP, turbidity or suspended solids. The same unit can be used to simultaneously measure multiple parameters just by changing sensor types. Endress+Hauser Inc., 317-535-1329,

Butterfly valves

Asahi/America has expanded its line of butterfly valves to include the Type 57LIS, which provides for direct replacement of metallic butterfly valves and conforms to ISO-5752 short face-to-face dimensions. The valve does not require any modification to the existing piping system. The face-to-face dimensions of the valve are the same as those of the metal valves that it replaces. The Type 57LIS is available in 3" to 8" as a lever-style or with Asahi's Plasgear™ gear-operator, which has an all-plastic housing design. Standard models are supplied as wafer-style for installation between two flanges or factory equipped with 316 stainless steel lugs for end-of-line applications. Asahi/America Inc., Malden, MA, 781-321-5409,

Close-coupled pumps

The Moyno® 2000 CC pump is designed for municipal and industrial applications where close-coupled configurations are preferred, but the robustness of a gear joint drive is needed. The pumps feature a sealed gear-type universal joint drive train and optimized rotor/stator pumping element geometry. They are designed to efficiently transfer abrasive, high-solids content materials. Using proprietary Ultra-Drive® gear-joint technology, the pumps handle radial and thrust loads for maximum performance. Ultra-Pro® rotor/stator pumping elements are engineered to require less energy consumption and reduce the potential for plugging and costly down time. Moyno Inc., Springfield, OH, 877-486-6966,
