Sept. 24-28 | New Orleans, LA

The 2016 Water Environment Federation Annual Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC.16) - considered the largest annual water quality event in the world - will take place Sept. 24-28 at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, La.

The 89th annual conference is expected to draw more than 20,000 attendees and will feature 29 workshops, 16 mobile sessions on the exhibit floor, nine local facility tours, and 130 technical sessions. More than 1,000 companies will showcase the latest in water technology solutions during the 5-day event. A Stormwater Congress and Pavilion, along with an Innovation Showcase Pavilion, will round out the program.

On Monday, Sept. 26, the Opening General Session, titled “Creating the Future of Water,” will feature a keynote address from Joe Whitworth, president of The Freshwater Trust, a non-profit organization that protects and restores freshwater ecosystems through science, technology, and incentive-based solutions. The conference kicks into high gear after that, with an exciting lineup of workshops and technical sessions.

Workshops are presented in an in-depth, hands-on format and will cover topics such as industrial water issues and treatment technologies; facility operations and maintenance; energy/residuals and biosolids management; and collection systems, among others. Technical sessions, organized by experts, focus on research and innovation; industrial issues and treatment technologies; facility operations and maintenance; residuals and biosolids management; collection systems and distribution; and water reclamation and reuse, to name a few. Topics include water challenges in the steam electric power industry, anaerobic treatment and resources recovery, innovations in regulations, and urban resiliency planning. WEFTEC Exhibition

The exhibit hall will showcase a variety of water and wastewater services and technologies related to biosolids and sludge; contract operations; engineering and consulting; instrumentation, controls and automation; pipe and collection systems; pumps, valves and motors; and more. The following pages contain a sneak peek at some of the products and services that will be on display. For more information, visit www.weftec.org.

Water conservation

OCV Control Valves are designed to get the most out of resources without wasting a drop. Standard design advantages create drip-tight Class VI closure, flow and pressure stability, preventing water loss and system-damaging surges. The Series 22 Electronic Control Valves offer more advanced control and water savings by allowing supply facilities to vary pressures and/or flow based on external factors, such as time of day.

Check valve

The ProFlex™ Style 790 Check Valve allows for passive flow operation that requires zero energy and relies on differential pressure only. The Style 790 valve features a flexible cuff on the inlet and discharge of the valve body, which allows for quick and easy installation. This valve is the elastomeric check valve of choice for municipalities, farmers, railway washouts and highway flood damage prevention.

Vortex-shedding flowmeters

P420 vortex-shedding flowmeters from Universal Flow Monitors are PVC or CPVC flowmeters that are cost-effective for use in flow monitoring for desalination and water and wastewater systems in both municipal and industrial applications. The P420 Series meets requirements for an inexpensive flow rate transmitter without moving parts that can stick, bind or coat.

Disinfection safety

Maximize the safety of your chlorine disinfection system by using a ton container scale and an emergency valve shutoff system. The Chlor-Scale® ton container scale from Force Flow safely cradles a chlorine ton container while providing critical feed and chemical inventory information. The Halogen Eclipse® emergency valve shutoff system instantly closes the container valve when a signal is received from a leak detector, panic button or from SCADA.

Ball valve

Val-Matic’s QuadroSphere® Ball Valve has multiple flow paths and four recessed surfaces to provide self-flushing and prevent clogging by avoiding high scale and solids build up. Special machining of the ball substantially reduces the ball to seat surface contact, creating less resistance during cycles and lowering operating torque.



Booth 5327
