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.

Reclaim, Reuse, Reduce

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.

Contaminant Removal for Industrial Applications

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.

Commercial Softening in a Salt-Sensitive World

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.
