Lift Stations

Legacy Building Solutions Tension Fabric Buildings

Combining rigid-frame engineering with the proven benefits of tension fabric membranes, Legacy Building Solutions offers fabric structures that are fully customizable. They utilize a durable rigid frame in place of the hollow-tube, open web truss “hoop” framing traditionally used for fabric structures. The strength of the structural steel frame provides several engineering advantages, most notably the ability to easily customize buildings to the exact width, length and height required. In addition to long clear spans, the buildings have straight sidewalls that maximize the useable square footage inside the structure. The design allows for much more structural flexibility than traditional fabric structures, including the ability to add lean-tos, mezzanines, sidewall doors and more. The structures are also engineered to provide desired overhangs or handle additional loads for items such as sprinklers and conveyors. 877-259-1528;

JWC Environmental Monster Stack

Since materials in the waste stream vary, grinders need to address multiple challenges from the bottom to the top of the grinder. Waste streams often consist of hard, abrasive materials such as rock and sand that are pushed along the bottom, materials that float such as stringy wipes and food scraps, or corrosive environments above the wastewater where the air is often high in hydrogen sulfide. The Monster Stack from JWC Environmental is a solution to this problem: a customized cutter stack to address the specific challenges of your installation. Because it uses individual cutters for its grinders, it is possible to mix different cutter types in the stack, and those changes can happen anywhere along the stack. It will mix and match the right cutter at the right location to optimize grinder performance and unit longevity. 800-331-2277;
