Local Support Saves Time And Money
Local Support Saves Time And Money

At a water treatment plant that provides drinking water for distribution to a large area of customers, a contractor decided to switch to SITRANS FM MAG 5100W flowmeters. A local representative saved a the contractor time and money by recognizing the need for the magmeter to be isolated from the piping protection before startup, which also saved the customer from added downtime.

In the summer, Teton Pass offers everything from downhill mountain biking to casual day hikes surrounded by an abundance of colorful wildflowers. Each year, the area grows in popularity, bringing new tourism and population growth alike. By The Gorman-Rupp Company

  • BioCon®: A Class A Solution
    BioCon®: A Class A Solution

    The Picnic Point Wastewater Treatment Facility was faced with reaching their plant processing capacity. The plant was sending its biosolids to be incinerated and part of this challenge was to find a way to manage the biosolids produced by this facility. Hauling and disposing of this sludge was difficult and becoming expensive. It was desirable to have a Class A biosolid to alleviate this concern and be more environmentally conscious.
