AUGUST 2014 WATER 91 Water Business NOV MONO SCORES PRESSURE SEWER SYSTEM SUCCESS IN AUSTRALIA NOV Mono has secured a signi cant success by being nominated as the preferred supplier for a major new pressure sewer network in Australia. Having evaluated various other alternatives, urban water corporation Wannon Water has chosen Mono's innovative InviziQTM pressure sewer system as the most cost-effective and easy- maintenance option for the Dutton Way project in Portland, Victoria. The Dutton Way residential project currently houses 180 properties that are serviced by septic sewage tanks. This gure will increase to 314 homes, all of which will have the option to install an InviziQTM sewage pumping system that feeds into the existing Portland sewer network. The InviziQTM system is the perfect answer for a development like Dutton Way, as it will give each home access to a highly effective sewage solution and can be scaled up as new properties are added over time. "We were able to present the InviziQTM system to Wannon Water, and took the opportunity to demonstrate our ability to provide technical support for a large- scale project such as this," adds Mono's Technical Sales Representative, Daniel McClusky. "As the InviziQTM system used on the Dutton Way project is installed by a certi ed installer, free training sessions have been provided for local contractors to obtain certi ed status." Any Dutton Way resident who chooses to install an InviziQTM system on their property will be supported by Wannon Water, who will be responsible for maintaining the unit's pump and motor assemblies for life. Designed as an intelligent alternative to conventional gravity sewering options, InviziQTM provides controlled transfer of sewage, but because it does not rely on gravity it offers the freedom to install sewers in any area, irrespective of the terrain, slope, environmental sensitivity or topography. It features a network constructed from small diameter pipe, and can be installed either in narrow trenches or via directional drilling. This gives virtually unlimited freedom in the design and layout of the network, which can then be sized to meet the speci c needs of each individual project. InviziQTM uses advanced PCB-based control technology and versatile software, allowing it to self-monitor and run diagnostic tests to ensure that the system is operating ef ciently. It can also support two-way telemetry for remote monitoring, and multiple InviziQTM systems can be linked to enable centralised network management.

FLOLEVEL TECHNOLOGIES LAUNCHES NEW ACOUSTIC DENSITY INTERFACE TRANSMITTER FloLevel Technologies, an innovator of level measurement products, has launched a new self-cleaning acoustic density interface transmitter for mining and applications that suffer from build-up issues. The new technology accurately measures most liquid/slurry solutions where an interface of up to two densities exists, that need to be monitored continuously. The level interface transmitter tracks liquid to liquid interface, liquid to paste interface, and liquid to granular interface. It is a high- powered ultrasonic self-cleaning transmitter that is not affected by changes in the conductivity and dielectric of the solution. The pulse amplitude is great enough to cause a phenomenon called "rarefaction", which causes cavitation to be produced from the array transducer diaphragms as they pulse. The cavitation bubbles oscillate in front of the diaphragm, which cause implosions that generate high energy levels, removing scale and other build-up problems. "With over 30 years of experience from many different applications in the mining industry, we have developed a Density Interface transmitter that will signi cantly improve automation control in very dif cult interface applications and signi cantly cut costs for the mining industry," says Robert Stirling, owner and inventor of FloLevel Technologies. The FloLevel system is easy to install from the top of the tank and easy to calibrate. It comes with adjustable 316SS bracket, ange mounting options and a colour display controller mounted in a stainless steel enclosure. They can measure the density interface, with a maximum control range of 6400mm and resolution accuracy options available are 15mm and 25mm. Various output capability options are available, like 3 x 4-20Ma, Modbus, Pro Bus, Foundation FieldBus, DeviceNet, and Ethernet. The FloLevel Array is suitable for all mineral slurry applications.

AIS designs, produces and manufactures chlorine generators for commercial and residential use. Ms Stuckey inspected examples of the innovative water disinfection systems that will be keeping the water clean and safe at the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre (GCAC) -- one of the aquatic venues for the 2014 Pan Paci c Swimming Championships and the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. AIS Chief Executive Of cer, Elena Gosse, showed Ms Stuckey the company's award winning AutoChlorTM and EcoLineTM chlorination systems which will operate in three of the swimming pools at the GCAC. The GCAC is currently under refurbishment until September 2014 and is one of seven recreational and competition aquatic centres operated by the City of Gold Coast's Council. Ms Stuckey said she was pleased that a local company such as AIS was producing technology of such a world-class standard.
