Koch Membrane Systems has a new submerged module for membrane bioreactor (MBR) treatment of municipal and industrial wastewater. The PURON submerged membrane modules use less space than alternative models and reduce energy consumption by up to 50 per cent. The proprietary air nozzle discharges air from the center of each fibre bundle at the base. The combination of rising air bubbles, the resulting hydraulic cross flow, and the seaweed-like movement of the membrane filters creates an energy efficient process that ensures that sludge, hair and other fibrous components are dislodged from the membranes. The membranes are 2 mm in diameter with a pore size of less than 0.1 micrometres.

Markland Specialty Engineering of Toronto makes the Model 602 Sludge Level Meter for automatic sludge level detection. The all-PVC probe can be used in clarifiers, tanks, inclined plate clarifiers (lamellas), SBRs and dissolved air flotation tanks.

Water Maze has introduced a compact, automated wastewater recycling system for waste streams in pressure washing. The patent-pending EC1-300A integrates electrocoagulation with polymer injection. The combined process is intended to treat challenging conditions in wastewater, ranging from suspended solids to emulsified oils and heavy metals. Intelligent control circuitry totally automates the system, which has a footprint of 40″ x 91″, and is enclosed in a metal cabinet.


Sloan Valve Company has a new 7000 series SloanStone solid surface lavatory sink system, with durable hardwire electronics, and optional 0.5-gmp aerators for water conservation.


The Control Plus pump control unit from KSB is for submersible pumps in municipal or industrial water treatment facilities. The unit includes a large LCD display with simple graphical symbols. The system also monitors conditions and operating history.


Generac Power Systems, line of Quiet-Test (QT) standby generators now includes 18-kilowatt outputs in air-cooled and liquid cooled versions.
