DeZURIK’s APCO Brand Valves

DeZURIK’s APCO Swing Check Valves prevent the backflow of stormwater by closing before flow reversal, preventing slam and water hammer. The designs meet or exceed the current revision of AWWA standard C508. The APCO ASV air vacuum valves allow large volumes of air to be exhausted from or admitted into a pipeline as it is being filled or drained. Four of the 60-inch APCO brand CVS-6000 swing check valves and ASV air vacuum valves are installed at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans Airport Pump Station. This pump station directs stormwater away from the airport to protect against flooding damage during tropical storms. The valves are part of the extensive post-Katrina infrastructure modifications that are critical to the protection of the City of New Orleans and its transportation system. DeZURIK has extensive experience manufacturing large valves for water distribution, water treatment, wastewater collections  and wastewater treatment. 320-259-2000;

Aries Industries TrailBlazer enclosure

Aries Industries introduced the TrailBlazer operations and transport enclosure, a self-contained equipment housing that can get critical equipment into tight work sites. The TrailBlazer mounts onto a pickup truck, all-terrain vehicle or trailer, allowing pipeline inspection equipment to be brought into locations too small for larger vehicles. The lightweight, lockable enclosure can house either an Aries Industries Mobile Pathfinder System or Master Controller System, both ready to send remote-control inspection robots into pipes and record interior conditions with video cameras. It has a weatherproof and corrosion-proof shell to protect and transport the control systems. Inside are two 250-pound-capacity drawers to securely store tractors, cameras and accessories. Two installed monitor options are available: one 17-inch sunlight-readable screen, or two 15-inch sunlight-readable units. The TrailBlazer has four 120-volt outlets and two USB outlets. 800-234-7205;

Watson-Marlow Bredel heavy-duty hose pumps

Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group’s Bredel heavy-duty hose pumps are a reliable and easy-to-maintain solution for handling the viscous slurries and grit-filled sludge in wastewater treatment plants. Unlike diaphragm, rotary lobe and PC pumps, the peristaltic design of Bredel hose pumps contains no moving parts that come into contact with the product, and no seals, ball-checks, diaphragms, glands, immersed rotors, stators or pistons to leak, clog, corrode or replace. Bredel hose pumps also remove the need for ancillary equipment such as dry-run protection, seal water flush systems and inline check valves. A simple hose change takes only minutes and can be performed in situ without special tools or skilled personnel. The hose pumps are dry-running and self-priming, and allow no slippage, for true positive displacement to provide accurate and repeatable metering. 800-282-8823;
