Mueller Co., a leading North American manufacturer and marketer of infrastructure and flow control products for use in potable water distribution networks and treatment facilities, has expanded its product line with the addition of the Hydro-Guard brand of automated flushing systems. Mueller Co. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Mueller Water Products, Inc.
The Hydro-Guard system uses modern technologies, including SCADA compatibility, to monitor water quality in distribution piping and automatically initiate flushing as necessary to maintain disinfectant residuals as required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This system conserves water, reduces chlorine consumption, and improves customer satisfaction by helping avoid taste and odor, while requiring virtually no supervision by utility personnel. On average, one Hydro-Guard Automatic Flushing System can save as much as 180,000 gallons of water and more than $7,000 annually compared to traditional hydrant flushing methods.
"The addition of the Hydro-Guard system to our product offering is another example of how Mueller Co. is helping utilities better understand and manage their water infrastructure," said Greg Rogowski, president of Mueller Co.
The Hydro-Guard system will be manufactured by Mueller Co. at its Cleveland TN plant, and sold through authorized Mueller Co. field sales outlets.
