EPA launches website as central information resource on anniversary
This year is the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act, the nation’s law for protecting our most irreplaceable resource. Throughout the year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and others will highlight the tremendous progress in reducing pollution since 1972, the many milestones along the way, the ways that the job is far from over and the tough challenges faced today and in the future. EPA has set up a webpage, www.epa.gov/cleanwater40, as the central location for information, activities, news and networking.
Shane Sullivan will lead efforts to improve sales of ultrafiltration products
Nephros Inc., a medical device company developing and marketing filtration products for therapeutic applications, infection control and water purification, announced that the company has hired Shane Sullivan as director of U.S. sales.
R2 and M2-Series RO systems are engineered and manufactured for commercial and light industrial applications and for feed waters up to 10,000 TDS. These high-efficiency systems use low-energy membrane elements that deliver high quality water at low operating pressures. This in turn makes AXEON R2 and M2-Series the first low-energy brackish water systems in the marketplace.
Aquanomix systems are engineered to manage harvested rainwater, storm water, graywater, process water and foundation water for reuse. A control system performs input/output commands, runs onboard diagnostics and integrates with most building automation systems. A standard system includes a centrifugal separator and bag filter for suspended solids removal, a UV disinfection system and more.
The HN4_SS series of stainless steel two-door cabinets is ideal for various process- and water-related industries, and can be mounted on walls or equipment. The cabinets are available in 12 sizes and are designed to house electrical, hydraulic or pneumatic controls and instruments installed in harsh or aggressive industrial environments.
ScaleBlaster eliminates the formation of lime-scale deposits in pipes, cooling towers, boilers and more. The integrated circuitry system produces a complex modulating frequency waveform that hits the resonant frequency of the calcium molecules, causing them to lose their adhesive properties. Existing scale is removed without the need for chemicals, salt or maintenance.
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 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.
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.
