Vanton Pump & Equipment has expanded its line of ANSI B73.1 centerline discharge, rear pullout horizontal process pumps by adding two new sizes. The new models, CGA-8X6X13 (ANSI-A90) and CGA-8X6X15 (ANSI-A110) will boost flow capacities from 1450 gpm to 3100 gpm and heads from 280’ to 350’ TDH. These sizes were developed to meet demand for higher flows that previously would have excluded thermoplastic pumps due to limited capacities. Contact with fluid being pumped is restricted to thermoplastics and other non-metallic materials. Vanton Pump & Equipment Corp., Hillside, NJ, 908-688-4216,

IMASTM (Integrated Membrane Activated Sludge) technology passed compliance for water recycling under California Title 22. A recent study at the Eastern Municipal Water District’s Perris facility confirmed its ability to meet these water quality criteria. The technology provides reliable membrane quality effluent, while minimizing capital and operating costs by individually optimizing performance of the biological and membrane filtration unit processes. Ashbrook Simon-Hartley, Houston, TX, 800-362-9041,

MBR modules

Toray’s submerged MBR module is equipped with flat-sheet membranes which boast an exceptionally small average pore size of 0.08 μm, which makes it possible to produce an extremely high-quality effluent. Due to the very even, narrow-range distribution of the pores, these membranes ensure long-term, consistently optimal filtration capacity while simultaneously reducing the effects of clogging. With a proven track record in high-technology membrane manufacturing, the company offers a superior submerged MBR solution. Toray Membrane USA Inc., Poway, CA, 858-679-0770,
