The following overview shows the innovations of WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL 2017:

Energy efficiency / measuring, control and analysis systems

Energy efficiency / measuring, control and analysis systems
AERsmart compound control system

Close-to-optimum overall efficiency

Aeration technology and load cycles working in unison provide for maximum efficiency when operating wastewater treatment plants – this is now possible thanks to a new machinery control system by AERZEN. On average, more than 70 percent of the operating expenses of a treatment plant are energy costs for supplying air to the aeration tanks. According to the manufacturer, AERZEN’s unique combination of blower, turbo and hybrid technology is the best, i. e. the most efficient, solution currently on the market. Its performance has now been lastingly improved yet again – with AERsmart, a new compound control system. This achieves unprecedented overall efficiency, very close to the optimum, as well as creating additional savings of up to 15 per cent. The AERsmart (illustration) also impresses with a new set of control algorithms for analysing the energy efficiency and consumption of wastewater treatment plants in accordance with DWA regulations. As an intelligent interface, it has already become a landmark component for “Water 4.0”.

LT-US-ATEX process monitor

Process monitors with their own ultrasound sensor

These self-contained process monitors have digital and analogue input ports for connecting external sensors, e. g. for measuring pressure, flow, liquid levels, tilt, temperature and position. All measured values are evaluated and stored locally. If measurements drop below or exceed the freely-programmable limit values, the process monitors transmit the measurement data and alarms to the control centre, meaning that the operator is always informed of the current plant status. Any SIM card can be used, including multi-network SIMs with VPN tunnels. The explosion-protected model, “LT-US-ATEX” (illustration) has an integrated ultrasound sensor for monitoring the catchment and relief behaviour of drainage systems in accordance with the German regulations on self-monitoring of waste-water systems (SüVO Abw). This device is even able to adapt its measurement and reporting interval to suit the current system status. Other applications for these process monitors include monitoring of water meters (DMA) and regulating valves (PMA), level measurement, accident alarms and flood protection.

Integrated communal infrastructure management

Bundle resources, increase efficiency and minimise costs – all this can be achieved using an integrated infrastructure management system. The concept behind this system is quite simple: all facilities and assets are managed together instead of individually. In order to implement this concept, a common information base is needed – such as the infrastructure information system designed by BARTHAUER Software GmbH. This offers operators a comprehensive tool for planning, managing, operating and updating infrastructure objects. The data of above-ground and underground infrastructure elements are maintained and updated centrally. In this way, the data can be made available to different departments and authorities by assigning appropriate access permissions to them. The open database structure also allows future linking of other specialised applications to the system, should these become necessary due to statutory requirements and standards.

Tie-down rails with integrated LED lighting

Tie-down rails with integrated LED lighting

These new tie-down rails with integrated LED lights (illustration) which need very little energy ensure excellent illumination of the entire vehicle interior. Here, too, bott relies on the widely-used airline tie-down rails and thus on an open system architecture. The actual bott vario vehicle fittings are also mounted on the vehicle walls using rails with the popular airline profile. In this way, the exhibitor is able to integrate additional tie-down points into vehicle side-walls. When a van fitted with this system is later sold, the new owner can continue to use the tie-down rails even if the bott vario vehicle furniture is removed. The new case shelf system with fully-extendable drawers is not only suitable for secure storage of the bott system cases in bott-vario interiors, but also for cases by other manufacturers. One major advantage: the case is drawn out of the rack like a drawer, so the cover can be opened without the case being taken off the shelf board.

Leaflet on security of the drinking water supply

Emergency potable water supply and enhanced risk analysis method

In accordance with the Emergency Water Control Act, the Federal Government maintains more than 5,200 emergency potable-water wells in major cities and urban areas. At this year’s fair, the concept of these wells is explained using an emergency potable water supply model, in this case for the city of Cologne, as an example. The complete equipment for an autonomous emergency well that can be operated even after a total black-out is being shown as well. This includes a pump, generator set and manifold standpipe together with the required electrical and hydraulic connections. The exhibitor is also presenting a risk analysis method that has been adapted for public water supply systems and provides valuable assistance to providers in municipalities, helping them assess their vulnerability to untypical and extraordinary hazards. The development of emergency concepts and the planning of emergency-supply resources in the field of water supply is a further important topic addressed by this exhibitor.

Surface flood discharge resulting from groundwater flows

Detailed analysis of impact on groundwater

At WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL 2017, the DHI WASY group will be presenting its newly-developed interfacing of FEFLOW groundwater simulation software with the MIKE21 hydrodynamics model. Using this coupling approach, the effects of various measures such as planned re-naturation (restoring river meanders) or structural changes (e. g. weirs and bridges) on groundwater can be analysed in detail (illustration). In addition, the results of integrated models of 3D ground-water flow processes and 2D hydrodynamic processes can be used as a basis for planning flood-protection measures. Exhibition visitors are able to acquire first insights into this technology and will have the opportunity to discuss their current projects and innovative solutions for hydrodynamic applications with the exhibition stand’s team.

The DMC system prevents dam failures.

Around the clock information on levee stability

At WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL 2017, Landindustrie Sneek will be presenting the DMC system for active dike and levee monitoring and the prevention of dike failures. The dike control and monitoring system supplies information on the stability of dikes and levees (illustration) 24 hours a day. Impending failure mechanisms such as macro or micro-instability and piping can be prevented by DMC lowering the water pressures on the respective dams or levees. The system’s main advantages are cost reduction in dike management and simple and quick installation without interfering with the surroundings. The DMC system was awarded the Water Innovation Prize in 2012 on the basis of criteria such as quality, innovativeness, sustainability and ease of application, This new system has already been implemented in many significant projects, e. g. as a full-scale trial in IJdijk, in primary seawalls at Colijnplaat and Ommelanderzeedijk and in a river levee at Veessen.

INFRATOP R78 PKS manhole / riser cover

Backflow prevention thanks to secure connection between frame and cone

Many towns are affected by flooding. When water overflows from underground drains, it can lift off manhole covers which, in extreme cases, may come to rest next to the manholes instead of on top of them. This poses a great danger to traffic and pedestrians alike. INFRATOP R78 PKS (illustration) with a flange frame offers a solution for towns which are regularly subject to flooding. This is a regular riser or shaft cover, except that the frame can be connected to the riser cone, ensuring secure and reliable connection of the frame to the cone. Nothing changes for the exhibitor’s customers with regard to handling, since the covers are the same as all other in the INFRATOP series, except that they can withstand a pressure of at least 0.5 bar. INFRATOP covers can be supplied with various frames: SELFLEVEL frames for asphalt paving as well as standard frames, stone paving frames and flange frames. Apart from standard cast iron parts, the manufacturers also offers versions made of galvanised steel, stainless steel, aluminium and composite materials.

Heartbeat Technology – reliable and flexible repeat tests

The intelligent alternative solution for safety applications. There is a wide demand for fast and simple tests and inspections, preferably of a high quality and designed not to interrupt plant operation. This is exactly what Endress+Hauser’s Heartbeat Technology is offering for flow and filling level measuring equipment. Processes, auxiliary circuits and protection systems have to be tested and inspected regularly, and Heartbeat Technology offers the unique option of testing sensors without having to remove them. A maximum fault detection level and well-documented results allow for considerably longer test and inspection intervals. The advantages are numerous: for the diagnosis functions – process and plant diagnostic messages in accordance with NE 107 with clear instructions; for the verification process – unambiguous and safe "pass / failed" measuring device evaluation and test documentation; for the monitoring functions – early detection of changes (trends), systematic faults and process effects.

Tracerjet gas tracing method

Locate pipeline water leaks accurately without shutting down operations

The “Tracerject” tracer gas method (illustration) works even with plastic pipes as well as with extremely long and large diameter pipes. The method involves injecting an authority-approved, detectable gas containing approx. 5 % hydrogen into the network section that is to be inspected.

The proportion of injected gas depends on the current water pressure and is between 5 and 8 % of the water flow rate. This amount is easily soluble in water and causes no problems in ongoing water distribution operation. Even if the leak is at the most inconvenient point, namely the lowest point of the pipeline, the water-gas mixture will still leak there. After leaving the pipe, the gas separates from the water due to pressure reduction, just as in a carbonated-water bottle when opened. To detect the gas and therefore the leak, the ground surface is subjected to vacuum inspection using a light-weight mobile vacuum probe. A high-sensitivity hydrogen detector samples the vacuumed gas and shows the exact location of the leakage.

Root-proof push-in joints

Root-proof push-in joints for ductile iron piping systems

Ductile iron piping systems and the corresponding push-in joints are demonstrably diffusion-tight, and therefore exclude any oxygen supply for roots in the pipe trench – one of the major factors that encourage root-growth. In addition, it has been shown that the joint pressure on compressed surfaces of the push-in joints of ductile iron piping systems far exceed empirically determined average root pressures. In view of this, their root-resistance can be proved by comparing the results of various joint pressure measurements of push-in joints. Based on these results, innovative applications for subterranean systems requiring root-proof push-in joints can be developed. One of these applications is described in the EADIPS®/ FGR® annual publication 51 “Ductile iron pipe systems” under the headline “Das Schwammstadt-Prinzip” (illustration).

Rehabilitation of tank 2 of the elevated water reservoir in Hewingsen

Delivery and removal of construction material through a window

Rehabilitation of drinking-water storage tanks is one of Fritz Wiedemann & Sohn GmbH’s specialist fields. The company’s most recent project: rehabilitation of tank 2 of the elevated reservoir in Hewingsen/Möhnesee (illustration). This more than 60 year-old structure had started to show signs of age and required extensive state-of-the-art rehabilitation. The damaged lining of the water tank, which holds 4,500 m³, was removed completely and the underlying surface was covered using pure mineral mortar with micro-silica additives - blue on the walls and white on the ceiling. The highly-qualified personnel working on the rehabilitation measures found themselves faced with a serious logistic challenge: materials, equipment and rubble had to be transported to and from the tank through a window 4.5 m above ground level. After 9 months of work, tank 2 was put back into service at the beginning of 2016 and has been supplying fresh potable water to the area's inhabitants ever since.

Fluid-flow simulation (on the left) and mounting of collectors in the RPS

Monitoring of water components

The RPS® tubular diffusive sampler (illustration) allows the use of collector materials for monitoring the components of water taken from a controlled sample flow. In the RPS®, the fluid dynamics of the sampling process using diffusive samplers are optimised and the process is calibrated in advance. This results in distinctly improved sensitivity and reproducibility of measurements from ground-water sampling stations, wells, pipeline networks or surface water. The cumulative sampling results allow the collection of both qualitative and quantitative data on water components. Deployment of an RPS® can also replace complex sampling for a momentary determination of water quality in the case of trace element concentrations or sporadic contamination. The “GCI-MW” web application being shown at the exhibition stand is a tool that allows users to evaluate water analysis results in aggregated form for any desired periods, check them for limit values and document everything in the form of a report – all with a few simple mouse-clicks.

Stainless-steel wire-wrapped screen coated with HAGULIT®

High filter capacity and excellent regenerability

Constructing a new well, together with all the necessary drilling work and high-quality lining material, such as stainless steel, is an expensive business. This is not all, the old well has to be shut down, too, and therefore it is often easier to renew this by regenerating it and inserting new piping. Up to now, corrosion-free PVC piping was often used for this purpose since it avoids corrosion induced by the lining materials. However, the reduction in cross-section, combined with the smaller inflow area of PVC filter pipes led to considerable loss in both productivity and regenerability. Now, a wire-wrapped stainless steel screen coated with HAGULIT® combines high throughput and good regeneration capability thanks to the corrosion resistance of the HAGULIT® coating. An initial pilot project using this solution was successfully concluded in 2016.

MINIMESH RPD HIFLO-S high-performance filter fabric.

Three-dimensional pore geometry

MINIMESH® RPD HIFLO-S opens up new dimensions in filtration, as the exhibitor points out. A new weaving technology developed by Haver & Boecker creates pores with a three-dimensional geometry (illustration). RPD HIFLO-S has characteristics that make industrial filtration processes faster, safer and more efficient. The pore size can be precisely defined before production. Such “precision pores” help to achieve very high separation precision and good shape stability. The pore sizes can be calibrated within a range of 5 µm to 40 mm, as required, within one single production lot. The main qualities of this newly-developed high-performance filter cloth made of woven wire fabric include a flow that is double that of comparable cloths of the same pore size, excellent separation precision and stability, corrosion and temperature resistance of the special materials used, along with ideal contamination retention and purging characteristics.

Kaeser DBS screw blower

Screw blowers for a blast

Screw blowers with a power consumption from 15 kW and 8 - 22 m³/min volume flow, and high-performance construction site compressors – these are the two highlights that compressed air system specialist Kaeser Kompressoren will be presenting at WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL 2017. Like its “big brothers”, EBS and FBS, the company‘s new DBS screw blower (illustration) shines due to its outstandingly high efficiency. In comparison to conventional rotary piston blowers, the new Kaeser screw blowers are considerably more efficient and offer high energy advantages over a lot of the screw blowers and turbo-blowers currently on the market. These benefits are partially achieved due to the use of Sigma rotary blower technology – a technology which has already proved its value in the screw compressor segment. The innovative slip-free direct drive with speed transmission integrated into the block also contributes to this superior performance.

Compact KOPF SynGas heat generation module

Compact heat generation module

SÜLZLE KOPF SynGas is an expert in generating energy using sewage sludge and optimising the energy balance of wastewater treatment plants. Following the amendment of German sludge treatment regulations, even treatment plants with a relatively low sludge output will be facing the challenge of thermal utilisation of the sludge. The exhibitor has developed a heat generation module (illustration) for this purpose. Its design is based on experience gained from more than 40,000 operating hours in plants in Balingen and Mannheim. It is suitable for sludge quantities between 750 t/a and 15,000 t/a dry matter. The plant is pre-fabricated at the works and is housed in containers. This guarantees short installation and commissioning times at the operating site and also makes the module highly economical. The plant is available with or without an ORC (organic Rankine cycle), depending on the required energy output mix. The SÜLZLE group, to which the two sludge processing specialists SÜLZLE KLEIN and SÜLZLE KOPF SynGas belong – will be presenting its comprehensive expertise in Hall 3.2.

The germs “typically found in water” such as legionella, pseudomonas, staphylococci and streptococci, as well as fungi, repeatedly develop in dental unit feed water. The LEGIO.ball (illustration) serves as a barrier that filters any contaminated feed water from the public water network, i. e. it prevents bacteria and sediments entering the dental unit, therefore removing some of the biofilm nutrients as well. LEGIO.ball’s advantages include high flow rates, even at low water pressures, a long service life of up to four months, easy installation and fast filter replacement without the aid of tools. An anti-bacterial drain attachment is available as an option. GmbH

New alarm software of the LBS (LimCo Biosensor System)

Extremely sensitive and reliable toximeter

At this year's exhibition, LimCo International will be presenting the new LBS (illustration), a continuous-flow biomonitoring system for on-line monitoring of the potential toxicity of potable water, river and lake water and waste water. Thanks to a large number of measuring channels, the device can be used as a multi-species biomonitor with simultaneous utilisation of several different indicator species. A new feature is the ability to use even the tiniest microscopic crustacean species and ground-water indicator species as highly-sensitive indicators for chemical pollution peaks, e. g. after chemical spills or bio-terrorism. The alarm algorithms and the electronics are also new, but are still based on the quadropolar impedance transformation developed by LimCo in 1994. This method has been extensively studied and the sensitivity and signal quality have now been optimised. This has resulted in an extremely sensitive and reliable toximeter.

Complete waste-water treatment plant made of large-diameter GRP pipes

The world’s first fibreglass piping system for sewage treatment plants

After implementing the world’s first fibreglass-pipe rainwater catchment tank to be located in an open body of water, LURI.watersystems.GmbH has now gone one step further: sewage treatment plants using large-diameter GRP (glass-fibre reinforced plastic) piping, completely pre-assembled in the factory (illustration). In comparison to concrete, as used in conventional plants, GRP has some essential advantages as a material: faster planning and construction, lower building and operating costs and no biogenic sulphide-induced corrosion. Using this material, sewage and waste water treatment plants can be planned and constructed within a year. The system uses large-diameter pipes of up to DN 3500 which are produced in the factory to meet the requirements of aerobic or anaerobic treatment technology, modified to suit the respective purpose and then equipped with the required electronic instrumentation and control systems. These plants can be installed above-ground or in an open body of water, therefore eliminating excavation work.

Akdolit® MnFS filter material used in the Hennesee waterworks of Hochsauerlandwasser GmbH

Short running-in times and reliable manganese removal

Water resources containing dissolved iron and manganese compounds are increasingly being used for potable water supplies. In line with this development, the demand for special de-manganisation filters is on the increase. Up to now, failure to trigger off the manganese removal process during the start-up phase, making the addition of oxidizing agent absolutely essential, was more than a rare occurrence and it was this situation that led to the development of “Akdolit® MnFS”. The product does not require a running-in period and in water with pH values of around 0.7 ensures reliable manganese removal, also in conjunction with iron removal, without additional process initiation. Akdolit® MnFS is a grainy filter material based on manganese dioxide and a silicate compound that meets all the requirements of relevant standards. The biological catalytic oxidation of manganese and iron occurs directly on the MnO2 grains.

Easy-lock shaft top that can be positioned using a road roller.

Flange frames for fast and flush installation

When installing covers and tops on shafts and drains, time is an important factor. Even more important is precise installation to match the road surface level. Now, Schachtguss-HT GmbH has developed the “EASY LOCK EWF” programme (illustration) to meet this requirement. All frames in this product line have a flange so that road rollers can pass over the covers and tops during installation. This saves an enormous amount of time and also leads to more precise installation. The EASY LOCK frames of the shaft tops and manholes can be fitted with all class D400 covers as specified in EN 124 as well as covers conforming to DIN 1229. A 300 mm high frame has been developed for special installation depths. The tops of all sizes have gratings with a clip-lock and hinges on both sides and can be lifted out of the frame. Since the frames only have a flange on three sides, they can be installed directly against the kerbstone edge.

DisintegrationUltrasoundSystem (DesiUS)

Save operating costs with ultrasound disintegration

The DesiUS ultrasound disintegration systems (illustration) offer energy-efficient und robust cell rupture technology with excellent efficiency for the treatment of biogenic slurry such as surplus sludge in sewage treatment plants. The ultrasonic oscillations create a homogenous and highly efficient cavitation field through which the sludge is then passed. The shear forces of the resulting continuous cavitation implosions tear the biological cells apart, break down the floc structure and open up the cell structure. This results in substantial acceleration of the degradation process, which in turn leads to increased biogas yield and reduction of the amount of substrate that has to be disposed of. The viscosity is also reduced considerably and the dewatering properties of the digested sludge are improved. The DesiUS can also be used to combat organisms such as Microthrix Parvicella, for example.
