Geolux’s new RSS-2-300WL non-contact flow meter combines radar technology for surface velocity measurement with an ultrasonic sensor for reliable water level monitoring. Surface velocity measurement is improved by using Kalman filtering and tracing algorithms based on energy movement modeling to assure precise and reliable measurements even in the most challenging applications. The RSS-2-300WL can measure fast and turbulent water flows. The ultrasonic sensor can measure water level ranging from 0.3 m distance from the sensor up to 15 m distance. Contactless measurement of water flow allows maintenance-free sensor operation.
Evoqua has remodeled its SeaCURE® ballast water management system to provide optimum high-flow-rate performance from what is now one of the smallest electrochlorination systems on the market. The next generation SeaCURE System is a skid-mounted, plug-and-play ballast water treatment system that is 76% smaller and 85% lighter than earlier generations of the system. It can fit through standard hatchways and can be installed by riding crews, substantially reducing pre-installation work and time required during dry-dock. It can be configured to work as a vessel’s marine growth prevention system, protecting against biofouling in critical machinery and cooling systems.

Hatenboer-Water introduces Tethys: a new range of reverse osmosis (RO) water generators. Responding to increasing demands from its global client base, the Dutch water treatment specialist developed a compact yet highly efficient RO unit for vessels requiring up to 6 m3 of fresh water per day. The RO unit desalinates seawater and offers a safe and durable alternative to standard fresh water bunker facilities, which are susceptible to bacterial contamination. It is set up modularly, with different filtration options and a plug-and-play frame that is easily installed and commissioned.
A Brite Company has built on its expertise of blending products to grow and expand its business and knowledge of clay filtration products, specifically Bentonite clay products. These formulations have the ability to separate oily contaminants from wastewater, precipitate metallic hydroxides, ionically react with non-precipitated heavy metal cations and encapsulate these contaminants to form non-hazardous waste. Specifically, clay products can be used to treat oily wastewater from processes using metal working fluid applications (including CNC, drilling and cutting); treat mop water; and solve a variety of difficult industrial wastewater treatment issues.
