  Sewer Bypass/Dewatering Pump

The Yakka150i from AllightPrimax is designed with replaceable wearplates and impellers in stainless steel materials, as well as the capability to pass 3-inch solids, making it suitable for a range of applications, including sewer bypass, permanent backup and dewatering. It operates quietly, emitting only 65 dBA at 23 feet. The body is impact-resistant and requires little or no maintenance due to its poly outer shell. The strong tubular frame design provides side and end protection, and lockable gull wing doors wrap over the body for added security and easy access. All controls are situated inside the lockable module. 877/477-4629; www.allightprimax.com.

  UV Disinfection System

  Pump and Flow Management

Symphony - Harmonious Pump & Flow Management from Data Flow Systems utilizes SCADA to coordinate the system-wide operation of sewer lift stations to reduce force main pressures and equalize flow into a wastewater treatment plant or master. The result is a significant reduction in energy costs and a solution to daily peak flow and pressure spikes. It addresses the random operation of each lift station operating on a common force main, and synchronizes the pumping activity on a minute-by-minute basis. Head pressures are reduced and pumps begin to operate more effectively and efficiently. It also tackles peak flow issues and levels the flow into a wastewater treatment plant by systematically managing the force main’s diurnal curve over a 24-hour period. 321/259-5009; www.dataflowsys.com.

  Wastewater Evaporator

The DriBoss DBE-750 Evaporator from Dust Control Technology is driven by a powerful 25 hp industrial-grade motor. The high-speed head features stainless steel fan blades for optimal droplet distribution, yet the low plume height helps ensure short drift distances. The design helps eliminate wastewater quickly and cost-efficiently, even without large evaporation ponds. Its 7.5 hp submersible pump is attached to a frame that floats on polyethylene pontoons, which are filled with closed-cell urethane foam, so even if a pontoon is accidentally punctured, it retains its buoyancy. 309/693-8600; www.driboss.com.

  Optical Absorption Sensor

The OUSAF11 sensor from Endress+Hauser is designed to measure optical absorbance by a process fluid. Using visible and near-infrared wavelengths of light, it is ideal for product loss detection, interface detection, and suspended solids and turbidity measurements. The sensor emits light in both the visible and near-infrared regions, and absorption by the process fluid is determined using an optical sensor mounted in the sensor head. The sensor is available in an immersion model for use in open tanks and basins, or in an insertion model with Tri-Clamp or Varivent connections that meet 3A sanitary standards. 888/363-7377; www.us.endress.com.

  Gravity Filter

The WWETCO FlexFilter from WesTech Engineering uses a synthetic compressible media to capture solids in a high-rate filtration process. Rising influent applies hydrostatic force to the outside of tapered flexible bladders, causing the media within the bladders to compress loosely at the top of the filter. This tapered compression provides for a filtration bed that is more open at the top of the filter, graduating to more densely packed synthetic media in the deeper portions of the filtration bed. As the liquid flows over the top of the bladders, larger particles are trapped in the upper portions of the filter. As the liquid works its way down, smaller particles are captured. The backwash system involves an air scour coupled with a high-energy wash cycle and specialized backwash troughs to minimize the volume of backwash needed. 801/265-1000; www.westech-inc.com.
