Membranes, by AXEON Water Technologies

AXEON Water Technologies introduces its 2.5-inch (63.5-mm) HF5-Series Ultra Low Energy Membranes, the industry’s only commercial membranes that feature a low nominal operating pressure of 80 psi. HF5 membranes can produce up to 2,500 gpf (9,463 L/day) with 98.5-percent salt rejection for improved system performance. They are ideal for use in applications with cold feedwater temperatures or where there’s a decrease in required operating pressure. Quality tested to ensure they meet the highest standards, these membranes are also manufactured in the USA. www.axeonwater.com, (800) 320-4074

Sampling valves, by Sample Valves & Equipment

SV&E sanitary sampling valves for use in applications ranging from kidney dialysis machines to potable water, are available in over 300 configurations for any type of sampling, including directional flows. Assembled valves can be autoclave cleaned. All valves are 316L stainless steel with a < 2 0 Ra finish and sealed with a PTFE tip. Machined components are laboratory washed, rinsed and dried with HEPA-filtered hot air. Each valve is individually serialized and provided with material certifications and a Certificate of Compliance. Assembly drawings and 3-D files are available for most models. www.samplevalvesandequipment.com

Replacement cartridges, by LabStrong Corporation

LabStrong now manufactures an economical replacement water purification cartridge for Thermo Scientific Barnstead Mega-Pure Stills and Deionizer System, suitable for operation in the Mega-Pure MP-12A Glass Stills and Mega-Pure Dual (D2) Cartridge Deionizer System. The deionization cartridge enhances the performance of Mega-Pure Glass Stills by reducing the amount of organics and chlorine in feedwater. The organic and chlorine removal cartridge is directly comparable and is composed of activated carbon and macroporous resin, designed to produce organic and chlorine-free deionized water to pretreat the Mega-Pure Still. It provides outstanding quality at a lower cost and is designed with a large cartridge capacity, which allows for extended cartridge use. In addition, it is typically stocked. Same day shipping is available for all products in stock. www.labstrong.com

Flowmeters and monitoring system , by PipeBurst Pro

PipeBurst Pro’s FloMeter offers an added level of data and protection to its leak detection and water protection system, allowing homeowners to track cumulative quantities of water used for consumption, conservation and leak detection purposes. Consumers can use a basic setting that tracks user set quantities of water through a pre-defined amount of time. With more advanced settings, a consumer has the option to set minimum and maximum thresholds in order to be better informed and protected against overuse, unintended use and even leaks. All of this information is collected and matriculated using ionleaks.com, giving consumers complete and comprehensive access to an Internet-connected PipeBurst Pro system from anywhere in the world. The web portal provides a graphical user interface that allows the user to both monitor and control the system remotely. www.PipeBurstPro.com, (800) 246-LEAK (5325)

Faucets, by GROHE

GROHE Blue Chilled & Sparkling Faucet is easy to operate and maintain, providing filtered, chilled and sparkling water directly from the tap. It eliminates the need for plastic bottles and pays for itself in less than 250 days. Innovative GROHE EcoJoy™ technology helps reduce water consumption by up to 50 percent without compromising on performance. www.grohe.com/us, (800) 444-7643

Two-stage treatment system, by Waterline Technology

Waterline’s DWS-HFC-1000PLUS two-stage treatment train, with a flowrate of 1.5 gpm, can provide a final barrier of protection from unknown microorganisms with sanitary quick-change and sealed cartridges. Stage 1 provides an annual supply of drinking for most families while Stage 2 provides 2-3 years of microbial reduction. Stage 1 is WQA-certified to ANSI/NSF Standard 42: Aesthetic Effects and ANSI/NSF Standard 53: Health Effects (chlorine reduction; fine filtration for removal of lead and cysts and high-capacity carbon block for reduction of VOCs, MTBE, TTHMs). Stage 2 charged membrane filtration, tested by US EPA with live organisms for reduction of bacteria, virus and protozoan cysts, is not pore-dependent like UF and RO membranes and actually retains the organisms within the media structure. Agion, Natures Antimicrobial is blended through the media on both filters. www.alwaysfreshh2o.com, (419) 529-3949

Wastewater treatment, by GE Power & Water

GE Power & Water introduces the latest in membrane-based wastewater treatment technology, combining anaerobic digestion technology with its ZeeWeed 500 membranes to create anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR). The technology reduces energy consumption, provides energy recovery and reduces sludge production both economically and reliably. It separates solids retention time from hydraulic retention time for a more robust biological process, retaining methanogens in anaerobic reactor, increasing methane production with no suspended solids in permeate and improving final effluent quality. www.ge.com

Aeration system, by Air Pump Water Solutions, Inc.

Air Pump Water Solutions, Inc. introduces its Breeze Aeration System for iron and sulfur problems (followed by filtration to remove 30+ ppm of iron), an alternative to expensive package systems. Air volume and pump activation is controlled with a simple digital timer, significantly reducing cost while improving performance. Installation is a Breeze! This residential system also can be sized for commercial applications. air-pump.com, (877) 423-7629

Well-testing kits, by Silver Lake Research

Silver Lake Research introduces the Watersafe Well Water Test Kit for residental water wells. The single-use kits include tests for copper, iron and lead; can detect dangerous levels of nitrates/nitrites; reveal the presence of toxins from pesticides or fertilizers; test for potentially harmful bacteria; determine water hardness; identify unsafe levels of chlorine and determine pH balance. Results can be compared to US EPA-recommended levels to determine treatment options. The agency recommends testing of private wells at least twice a year. www.silverlakeresearch.com, www.discovertesting.com
