AR’s 1000S1G4 is a solid-sate amplifier covering the 0.8 – 4.2 GHz frequency range. When used with a sweep generator, it provides a minimum of 1000 watts RF power. Like most of AR’s amplifiers, this model is ideal for applications that call for instantaneous bandwidth, high linearity, and high gain.

GDT Mixing & Contacting Systems GDT Mixing & Contacting Systems

The GDT™ Process starts with the creation of ozone from an Ozone Generator. The ozone is then drawn into a Mazzei®Venturi Injector which provides dynamic mixing (a Back Pressure Control Valve adjusts injector outlet pressure optimizing ozone mass transfer in the system). Then mixing and contacting is enhanced in a Flash Reactor™. From there the two-phase flow travels to the Degas Separator (DS) & Relief Valve for additional mixing and entrained gas removal. And finally, the MTM Mixing Nozzles force dissolved ozone flow into the untreated water in the pipeline or basin for thorough mixing.

ETS-UV™ For Water Reuse ETS-UV™ For Water Reuse

Given the critical shortage of drinking water in many regions, advanced treatment and reuse of wastewater is becoming increasingly common as municipalities address water demands and shrinking supplies.

  • The ABCs Of PFCs
    The ABCs Of PFCs

    Nick Burns, director of water treatment technology for (the Americas region of) Black & Veatch, discusses the health concerns, current regulatory status, and documented presence of perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), also sometimes called perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), in drinking water supplies — as determined by sampling under the U.S. EPA's Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule 3 (UCMR3).

    What Did Rural America Do To Deserve This?

    By now, just about everyone in the U.S. has heard about Flint, Michigan’s water woes. Despite the many issues raised by that incident, urban water systems are not the sole reason the 2017 Report Card from the American Society of Civil Engineers gives the U.S. drinking water infrastructure an overall “D” grade. Hidden within that disheartening rating are the harsh realities faced by rural water systems.

    Guiding Water And Wastewater Treatment Under The New EPA

    It’s no secret that the U.S. EPA has changed course in the last year. But how have those changes affected local water and wastewater treatment operations? And how are those operations going to evolve along with the federal agency?

  • Orchestrating Corrosion Control With Phosphate Analyzers
    Orchestrating Corrosion Control With Phosphate Analyzers

    As with so many other drinking water treatment processes, corrosion control demands a delicate balance among multiple factors. From the water-purifying chlorine that increases corrosion risk, to alternative strategies that reduce corrosion — using either elevated pH or phosphates — keeping corrosion under control requires sound strategy and reliable execution. Here are several approaches to addressing those conditions, along with options for better, more effective corrosion control.

    Water And Food: One Man’s Vision

    Angelo Mazzei has always thought locally and acted globally. Born and raised in California’s San Joaquin Valley — one of the world’s most productive farming regions — Angelo worked for his uncle’s 10,000-acre farming operation after graduating from college. There he saw a pressing need for a system that would allow farmers to safely and efficiently inject fertilizer into their irrigation water — a task made even more challenging with the 1968 introduction of high-pressure water supplies through the California Aqueduct, a 400-mile-long water conveyance system. A new approach was vital.

    Can Innovation Be Achieved With A Tried-And-True Disinfection Technology?

    Since chlorine technology was first used to disinfect drinking water in Jersey City, NJ, in 1908, most waterborne diseases have been eliminated in the U.S. Chlorine is still the most common disinfectant for drinking water and wastewater. Chlorine is also used for disinfection and as a biocide in numerous industries.

    High-Capacity Filtration Plus Ultraviolet Disinfection For Cooling Towers Means More “Uptime” For Server Farms

    Most of us use computers or smartphones on a daily basis. But we usually don’t know what goes on behind the scenes — the technology that allows us to use cloud computing or even Google search. And we certainly aren’t aware of the infrastructure needed to support that technology — like cooling towers.

  • Setting The Standard for Effective Chromium-6 Treatment
    Setting The Standard for Effective Chromium-6 Treatment

    When California capped chromium-6 in drinking water at 10 ppb in 2014, it became the only state to set a chromium MCL and, in so doing, created a challenge for water providers across the state.  WRT (Water Remediation Technology LLC) has met that challenge with the SMR (Selective Metals Reduction) Process.

    Easier, Faster, And Safer Option For Measuring Total Nitrogen

    Total nitrogen (TN) has become a compound of concern because of its impact on eutrophication on water sources. And as more states begin to set limits for TN, accurate testing becomes paramount. Unfortunately, multiple labs and variable test procedures can lead to disparities in final results. Many of today’s test methods are also time consuming, expensive, and even unsafe for lab technicians to use.

  • How To Destroy Pathogens And Micropollutants With Ozone
    How To Destroy Pathogens And Micropollutants With Ozone

    Utilities continually face new challenges. Where treatment facilities were once expected to simply disinfect the water, they must now avoid creating disinfection byproducts during the process. New and more stringent regulations require removal of additional micropollutants and emerging contaminants. Finding the best technology to accomplish these goals can be difficult.

  • Sensitive Determination Of Iron In Drinking Water, Mineral Water, Groundwater, And Spring Water Using Rapid Photometric Tests
    Sensitive Determination Of Iron In Drinking Water, Mineral Water, Groundwater, And Spring Water Using Rapid Photometric Tests

    The quality of drinking water is regulated by a variety of guidelines, such as the EU Council Directive 98/831,2 and WHO guideline. The key principles used to define these limits consider both health hazards and sensory and technical reasons. Iron, for example, does not exhibit a risk for health in concentrations usually found in drinking water.
