  • Introduction to penstocks
    Penstocks are used for controlling the flow of large volumes of water in wastewater treatment, sewage, irrigation, hydraulic works and hydro-electric power applications. Penstocks are typically mounted in a wall, a channel...
  • Introduction to industrial compressors
    Compressors move gases, including air, processes gases and waste gases, using a large increase in pressure. Blowers , by contrast, move gases using a moderate increase in pressure. Compressors are used in all industries.
  • Introduction to actuators
    Actuators provide modulating, on/off or positioning control and automation of valves. They are used in industrial processes, water and effluent treatment, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. They are...
  • Introduction to tank covers
    Industrial tank covers are used for large tanks in the petrochemical, industrial process, water, wastewater and sewage treatment industries. Tank covers limit the emission of hazardous gases and odours to protect the...
  • Introduction to blowers
    Blowers are used to move gases, including air, dirty gases and process gases, with a moderate pressure increase. They can also produce negative pressures for vacuum systems. By contrast, with compressors the gas involved is...
  • Introduction to gas dosing systems
    Gas feed systems are used to treat water and wastewater in municipal and industrial processes. The safest systems tend to operate on all-vacuum principles. Chlorinators disperse chlorine into water and wastewater in a...
  • Introduction to chemical dosing systems
    Chemical dosing systems typically comprise a chemical storage tank, pipework, controls and a frame or cabinet, as well as one or more metering pumps . They can dose liquids, powders or polymers. One common application is the...
  • Introduction to sanitary / hygienic pumps
    Sanitary or hygienic pumps are used for handling sterile and ultrapure materials in the food processing, dairy, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, biotechnical and medical industries. Air operated double diaphragm, centrifugal,...
  • Introduction to dewatering presses
    Dewatering presses are one of several solids / liquids separation technologies used to treat municipal and industrial sludges and other waste materials. By reducing the volume of the solid material, disposal costs can be...
  • Introduction to ultraviolet (UV) treatment
    Ultraviolet treatment is a method of sterilisation that is used to kill pathogens, such as bacteria, viruses and fungi, found in potable water, wastewater, effluent and process water, without the use of chemicals. UV...
  • Introduction to centrifuges
    The centrifuge is a mechanical separation technology that uses accelerated rotation to separate out substances of different densities. These will be either a solid and a liquid or two immiscible liquids, such as water and...
  • Introduction to air / gas purification
    Indoor air quality (IAQ) can be compromised by micro-organisms, dust, fumes, smoke, gases, such as CO2, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), as well as other airborne particles. Such polluted conditions may be immediately...
  • Introduction to flow measurement
    The best flowmeter for a specific application will depend on: - what’s being measured (e.g. air or granular solids) - the nature of the fluid (e.g. viscosity, turbidity, aggressive chemicals) - where it’s being measured...
  • Introduction to industrial process pumps
    A broad range of industrial pumps is available to handle aggressive, corrosive, toxic, high temperature, high viscosity, fibrous and solids-laden substances. They are used in every industrial setting, from chemical...
  • Introduction to mixers
    Mixers are used to mix, blend, homogenise, agitate and aerate both liquids and solids in a range of sectors, from wastewater treatment through to food processing. Dynamic liquid mixers use propellers to provide local...
