Impeller Materials

Customers often ask us: “What's the best impeller material?” Unfortunately, there is no standard answer because there is no such thing as standard wastewater. Since there are different types of wastewater, material choice for specific sewage applications is critical for ensuring long pump life.

UVC Sensors

UVC Sensors

Sensors work together with ballasts and lamps in a control loop.

Flygt Seals

Flygt Seals

The reliability of a submersible product will never be better than the reliability of its sealing system. Unlike dry-installed equipment, any fluid leaking through the seals will accumulate in the pump or mixer and cannot be drained during operation. To achieve long service intervals and high reliability, exceptional demands are made on the sealing system for submersibles.

    Remote Pressure Monitoring System: Video

    Several years ago, Mueller began a journey to develop a user friendly and cost-effective technology to continuously and remotely monitor pressure at any point within a potable water distribution system. The technology involves threading a sensor onto a corporation valve to transmit pressure readings. The pressure sensor, typically installed two (2) per District Metering Area (DMA), reports at user-defined intervals via cellular service and a Mueller-hosted secure web server. Beginning with pressure monitoring, Mueller has created a communications backbone that utilities can integrate into its monitoring systems or use as a stand-alone monitoring platform. This technology is currently available in North America.
