The RevV4 rotary control valve analyzes real-world operating conditions for optimal efficiency and is designed with two highly-polished ceramic discs. This engineering advancement eliminates the traditional control valve’s use of pistons and seals, and also reduces noise level during operation. The valve’s flow rates, advanced programming options, interlocking capabilities and a 32-mm distributor tube make it ideal for both residential and light commercial applications.
The UV-Pearl uses UV-C LED technology, allowing instant full intensity on startup and mercury-free water treatment. The compact system can operate as a standalone unit or be integrated into OEM devices, ultrapure water generators, medical sterilization equipment and other POU applications. It uses UV LED lamps, which emit waves of light in the deep UV spectral range that destroy microorganisms on a cellular level. The lamps can be tuned to different wavelengths to target specific pathogens.
The Tequatic Plus fine particle filter combines continuously cleaning, cross-flow filtration with centrifugal separation. It is designed to handle a range of difficult-to-treat feedwaters consistently and cost-effectively. Applications range from pretreatment for ultrafiltration and RO to filtering produced water for oil and gas. The product can be used as an alternative or a complement to traditional filtration and is currently available in various flow rates, with filter cutoffs from 10 to 55 µ to meet specific customer needs.
ABuv residential and light commercial UV systems are tested and certified to NSF Standard 55 for Class B disinfection performance and have NSF-rated flow rates of 5.5, 7.8 and 12 gpm. They feature flow restrictors, lamp failure alarms, lamp-change reminders and countdown lamp timers. The units provide supplemental treatment for water that has been tested and deemed acceptable for human consumption.
ONE cartridge tank filter systems are offered in two configurations and can utilize a variety of large-capacity cartridges, extending replacement cycle times. The EF-835-1 cartridge tank, with top-mount valve including bypass, is suitable for residential and light commercial applications. The EF-835-2 cartridge tank was designed with a 2-in. inlet/outlet connection at the bottom of the tank, making it ideal for commercial and industrial applications.

Meeting to feature more than 300 exhibitors and more than 70 hours of educational offerings
The world’s largest gathering of groundwater professionals has inundated the Las Vegas Convention Center for the 64th National Ground Water Assn. (NGWA) Expo and Annual Meeting.
Among the highlights are:
All it took was one member of the Mankato YMCA in Mankato, Minn., to positively alter the swimming environment for the 10,000 members who use the club regularly. That member, a professor at Mankato State University, had read about the use of Sphagnum moss to treat and condition the water in public pools in St. Paul, Minn., and talked to YMCA CEO John Kind about it.
Pool facility improves water quality with moss treatment system
The Water Quality Products staff celebrates the best water treatment projects of 2012 with the third annual Top Water Quality Projects awards. The program recognizes the most innovative and challenging projects submitted by readers.
This year's projects come from across the U.S. and address a range of issues. From groundwater contaminant removal to reverse osmosis, they demonstrate how companies are employing innovative technologies to solve water treatment problems.
