Better and Better and Better

Say what you “May,” but you better believe that in this month’s Chatter, we’re bringing ideas and information you can use. First off, we’re taking a resourceful and environmentally responsible look at activated carbon reactivation. Then, we’re showcasing one “made for municipal” as well as one “ideal for industrial” pump. And finally, we’re assembling the primary reasons why your choice of field equipment enclosures really matters.

At CPC Co., we continually strive to serve you better. As you hopefully spotted in your inbox recently, we’re in the midst of collecting customer feedback on what we do well, and where we can improve. It is a very quick and simple 10 question survey, and we’ll also be sending those who complete it a special thank you gift. There’s still a little time left, so if you haven’t shared your views yet, we encourage you to do so here:

Better get to the Chatter . . .

Manufacturer of the Month

TETRASOLV FILTRATION, whose headquarters and ASME fabrication facility are located in Anderson, IN, has proudly and successfully fabricated and serviced multimedia filters for over 20 years. Among the multitude of product and service offerings, Tetrasolv can reactivate all non-hazardous and most hazardous spent carbons at their new, state-of-the-art reactivation plant. The facility provides customers with the assurance that their waste is handled in a safe, compliant and environmentally friendly manner.

All hazardous waste streams are handled via a separate hazardous waste transfer facility in Texas that meets all local, state and federal laws. The off gas system of this 12MM lb/yr reactivation facility has been specifically designed to handle PFAS contaminants. The facility is designed to be environmentally friendly, highlighted by water reuse and solar panels and is ISO 9001/14000 certified. In addition, Tetrasolv has reactivation capabilities for non-hazardous carbons on the West Coast and in the Midwest.

When your media needs to be changed out, there are multiple ways to handle the waste material. Landfilling and/or incineration are commonly used but are not environmentally friendly. Tetrasolv is committed to being “green” and highly recommend that spent activated carbon be reactivated. In short, reactivation with Tetrasolv:

  • Meets environmental needs to minimize waste
  • Reduces CO2 emissions
  • Limits the use of the world’s resources
  • Reduces the cost of activated carbon usage

The Cutting Edge

PULSAFEEDER has a long history of manufacturing leading-edge products to get the job done, delivering the chemicals into water and processes around the world. For over 80 years, Pulsafeeder has developed a reputation for consistency in the market and metering hundreds of chemicals in a broad set of applications:

Municipal – Pulsafeeder Eclipse non-metallic gear pumps continue to displace both diaphragm and peristaltic pumps for metering chemicals in municipal applications. It’s rotary gear design eliminates pulsations found in conventional metering technology which means smaller piping can be used and there is no need for pulsation dampeners. The pumps can respond quickly and accurately in response to change in process demand when coupled with an inverter duty motor and, the front pull out design allows for service in just minutes without removal from the piping system. The fully non-metallic design makes it compatible with a variety chemicals and it is the perfect choice when dosing sodium hypochlorite. Eclipse comes in sizes to meet a wide range of chemical metering demands.

  • Sealless mag drive design for maximum safety
  • Pulseless flow allows compact size
  • Front pull-out design for fast service

Industrial – Pulsafeeder PulsaPro hydraulically actuated diaphragm metering pumps are used to precisely deliver fluids in a wide variety of industries and applications. With 0.5% accuracy these are the go-to products to avoid wasting chemical and PulsaPro allows operators to quickly monitor pump operating status: quickly prime and commission with the push-to-purge button and without special tools, observe if the pump is properly operating with hydraulic diagnostic ports, and easily adjust the pumps internal bypass valve setting to avoid upset to changing system conditions. These robust pumps serve in a variety of applications from hazardous petrochem installations where equipment must comply to rigid API 675 standards to municipal water treatment applications certified for NSF 61 for safe drinking water treatment.

  • Fast start-up, commissioning and troubleshooting
  • Designed for decades of operation with minimal maintenance
  • Optional features: HypoValve to handle fluid off-gassing, Pulsalarm lead detection for safety and, the XAE pump remote controller
