More compact and with lower feed capability than the Flex-Pro A3 and A4 units, the A2 peristaltic metering pump is suited for smaller-capacity municipal and industrial water and wastewater treatment applications. Features include self-priming, a one-button prime mode, a degassing design that eliminates gas and air accumulation in the pump head, and a maximum feed of 33.3 gal per hour.
The VZN Series uses three technologies to deliver better-tasting, scale-reducing, ultrafiltered water throughout an entire restaurant or house. The multi-bore ultrafilter reduces 99.999% of solids and substantially reduces microbiological contaminates. Because the carbon cartridge follows the ultrafilter, it does not clog, resulting in higher taste and odor reduction levels. The final technology reduces 96% to 98% of lime scale without using chemicals or wasting water.
R2-series and M2-series reverse osmosis systems are engineered and manufactured for commercial and light industrial applications and for feedwaters up to 10,000 TDS. These high-efficiency systems utilize Filmtec LC LE low-energy membrane elements, making them the first low-energy brackish water systems in the industry.
The 360 single tank aeration filter features Clearion controls for forward and reverse motor capability, and can replenish its Oxy Chamber each night without having to backwash, saving hundreds of gallons of water per week. Fully adjustable cycles, along with Vortech tank technology, ensure the media bed is backwashed to the fullest and leaves no collected iron or sulfur contaminants.
Flexeon AT, BT, CT, DT and GT series reverse osmosis systems are engineered, manufactured and factory-tested to provide an affordable, high-quality solution for commercial and industrial applications. These high-efficiency low-energy systems use Axeon membrane elements that deliver high-quality water at low operating pressures.
The Brookfields Restaurant chain consists of three large eateries located in and around Sacramento, Calif. Like many others, Brookfields Restaurants were equipped with water softeners to control lime scale on their hot water equipment, which consists of hot water heaters, dishwashers, steamers, coffeemakers
and espresso machines.
Water conditioners resolve restaurants' spotty dishes
This year’s winning projects for the second annual Top Water Quality Projects program come from all corners of the water treatment marketplace. These winners represent the most innovative and challenging projects submitted by readers to Water Quality Products (WQP) for recognition this year.
To be considered, all projects must have been in the planning or implementation phase in the past 18 months.
Gateway Village, a 15-acre mixed-use development complex in North Carolina—designed to bring businesses, retailers, restaurants, new residents and visitors to the area—was developed through a joint venture between Bank of America and Cousins Properties. The complex is home to three office towers totaling more than 1 million sq ft of class A office space. In late 2007, North Carolina and a large portion of the southeastern U.S. endured an exceptional drought that prompted water restrictions across the region.
Water reclamation system saves energy & water costs
When the McGraw Hill Data Center in East Windsor, N.J., was being built, the local municipal authority informed the company that it did not have the capacity to support the makeup water for the data center’s condensers or chill water plant. A new well was drilled to serve the plant; however, the groundwater supply had iron and manganese levels that exceeded regulatory limits.
System resolves high contaminant concentrations for data center
Commercial softening provides a significant opportunity to well-grounded water improvement professionals. It requires a special skill set, similar to residential applications, but at an elevated and more detailed level. While the troubleshooting and repair methods may be more sophisticated, the basics are the same.
System configuration is more critical and variable, allowing for a wider variety of possible solutions. Choose wisely, as the cost of poor initial system selection will be exacerbated over the life of the equipment. The least expensive option is almost never the best.
