Reducing risk in water wastewater through integration

The water/wastewater sector is a constant - unaf- fected by many of the market forces that affect other industries, water has always, and will always, be needed. This stability doesn’t translate directly to immunity from risk for operators. In fact, it is quite the opposite, the sector has several unique challenges to overcome and one of the more stringent regulatory environments of any sector. Within the UK water/wastewater industry there

are also risks associated with assets, availability, and most importantly, safety and health risks to employees and the general public. Set this into the context of increased water demand and urbani- sation, and the reality for operators is an industry as reliant on the promise of digitisation as any. The era of digital transformation offers a huge

opportunity for water companies to make signifi- cant strides in mitigating all of these risks and building a more flexible and resilient approach fit to meet the challenges of the future.

Technical Knockout: GF Piping Systems new all-plastic Butterfly Valve 565 beats metal in every round

GF Piping Systems today launches its new Butterfly Valve 565 onto the market. The highly reliable, cost-effective, lightweight, all-plastic valve produced in Switzerland proves its clear superiority over metal valves in water treatment and a wide range of other applications. Butterfly Valve 565 is strong but lightweight, consisting of high-performance plastic components. It

is suitable for up to 16 bars, and tough temperature ranges from -10°C to +80°C. Direct Replacement Designed to be quick and easy to install, Butterfly Valve 565 comes in the same installation length as metal valves (ISO 5752 Row 20), therefore avoiding costly modifications on the existing piping systems, a clear advantage over its metal opponent. 60% lighter The Butterfly Valve 565 is 60% lighter than a comparable metal valve, so a single technician can safely and easily handle it during installation. This also facilitates planning, since the lower weight signifi- cantly reduces the need for costly transportation and personnel.

VEGA features new level switches for maximum efficiency

Ask any operator - some of the smallest parts of the process, like sensors doing the ‘simplest’ detection and switching, can cause big problems; overspills, feed supply run-outs or long hold-ups – especially when they struggle with the demands of modern production processes, or variations.

VEGAPOINT 24 Flush hygienic point level switch

suitable for all media, works out of the box The new VEGAPOINT 24 level switches have the answer and they are full of useful features.

Out of the box thinking with minimal adjustment Versatility, it’s really quick to deploy - this plug-&-play sensor can be installed easily in just a few simple steps - with no adjustment for point level, foam or interface detection.

Fits like a glove Its designed to fit in easily, with a range of simple, versatile process fittings and adaptors. The front-flush design is perfect for CIP cleaning and ‘pigging’ systems.

Light up your life Indicates the process status where you need it on the plant, with a super-bright 360° LED ring, that is easily visible from afar.

VEGAPOINT 24 means optimum visibility and reliability of processes – delivering durability, low

life-cycle costs, and ‘easy to see’ indication, makes it a truly ground-breaking and reliable point- level switch. If you would like to test or try a device for yourself, or just get more information e-mail service, so that their customers can improve operating efficiency and machine uptime.”
