Markland Specialty Engineering Ltd. (Georgetown, Ontario, Canada); www.sludgecontrols.com
The Automatic Sludge Blanket Level Detector enables water and wastewater treatment facilities to measure, monitor, and control solid-liquid interface levels in clarifiers and sedimentation basins, including dissolved air flotation units; sequencing batch reactors; the constricted area of lamellas; and automate the removal of primary, secondary, and backwash silt/sludge. The detector enables users to program de-sludge pumps to operate only when necessary, reducing energy usage, wear-and-tear on pumps, and downtime for maintenance. In addition, it helps in preventing carryover and optimizing feed density for enhanced dewatering. The detector automatically adjusts the beam power intensity of the LED-phototransistor sensors in its vertical probe, enabling it to accommodate thick or thin biosolids concentrations, or light flocs, such as in the overlying cloud layer. No calibration required.

The updated meter now offers a main power option with battery backup, and a Modbus RTU communication option for transmission of readings, meter status, and alarms. The polycarbonate converter housing with protection class IP68 rating is now standard for both compact and remote versions. The meter features IP68 waterproof plug and play connectors that don’t require wiring onsite, and a small installation footprint to fit into electrical cabinets.
CycloPure (Encinitas, Calif.); www.cyclopure.com
The DEXSORB™ line of cyclodextrin-based adsorbents selectively target and remove hazardous micropollutants from drinking water. The substance’s flexible formulations allow for its broad use in water treatment systems that serve communities, businesses, and households for applications that range from filtered water bottles to large municipal facilities. Derived from renewable corn-based cyclodextrin, the adsorbents represent a new class of water treatment adsorbents that safely eliminate such harmful chemicals as polyfluoroalkyl substances and perfluorooctane sulfonate, pesticides, and pharmaceutical compounds.
Master Bond (Hackensack, N.J.); www.masterbond.com
Master Bond has developed a formulation of opaque colored compounds, which represents a breakthrough in ultraviolet (UV)/visible light curing adhesive technology. These unique innovative environmentally-friendly products possess the capability of curing in a wide range of colors while offering the same combination of beneficial properties exhibited by transparent curing systems. They require no mixing, cure in seconds upon exposure to an appropriate commercial UV/visible light source, have excellent adhesive strength, thermal stability, chemical/moisture resistance, and electrical insulative properties. LED401 white is opaque white in color. It is a one-part system that cures fully upon exposure to a 405 nm wavelength light source.
