Using new, patented technology, Aqua Cents Water Management can inject organic hydrogels directly below the root zone of existing turf. Customers are reducing outdoor water use by up to 50% of recommended ETo. Aqua Cents Hydrogel retains the ability of repeated water absorption and release over an extended period of three to five years, making them very cost-effective for long-term benefits and attractive ROIs.www.aquacents.com
DANFOSS DRIVES Danfoss NEMA 3R VLT AQUA Drives maximize flexibility and equipment performance in outdoor installations. The VLT AQUA drive, which has always been available in the NEMA/UL Type 4X enclosure, is now available in a NEMA/UL Type 3R rating. This new enclosure rating has protection against falling rain, sleet, and ice formation. With all cast aluminum parts these drives are inherently NEMA 3R, so there is no need for a separate enclosure. The impressive range of standard I/O can be expanded through factory or field installable option cards. With enhanced features specific to water applications and custom programmability, each drive provides simple out-of-the-box operation.www.danfossdrives.com
DEFENDER TANK COVERS Defender Tank Covers are custom manufactured from industrial grade materials to fit the profile of new or existing wastewater treatment tank or potable water tanks. Odorous gas emissions from wastewater treatment facilities generate complaints from local residents and are subject to the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990. Defender odor control covers contain volatile organic compounds at the source.  Low-profile structurally supported covers minimize emission treatment volume to reduce the cost of air filtration equipment, eliminating the ongoing expense of applying costly odor control chemicals through atomizer and misters.www.environeticsinc.com
HOBAS PIPE USA Centrifugally cast, fiberglass-reinforced, polymer mortar HOBAS pipe is suitable for new construction and rehab of critical installations including storm and sanitary sewers, potable water, and corrosive environments. HOBAS manufactures pressure and gravity pipe in diameters ranging from 18 to 126 inches with leak-free push-together joints that speed installation and reduce costs. It is ideal for a variety of installation methods including sliplining and other trenchless methods, open cut and above ground.www.hobaspipe.com

IDT The IDT Harmony Water Management System works virtually anytime, anywhere, giving insight into rural water utility operations through satellite-based access to metering functions. Harmony works with all with all major automatic meter reading (AMR) devices. Unlike drive-by or fixed radio automatic meter reading, Harmony saves time, money, and man-hours by remotely identifying problems, saving waste, and improving billing. Rugged, durable field units deploy quickly with no power source needed, and the Harmony Cloud application makes metering control and billing easy.www.idt.us.com
KAMSTRUP WATER METERING LLC READy makes meter reading simpler. This AMR application from Kamstrup offers automatic reading from the convenience of an Android smartphone or tablet. The app uses Google Maps to plot where all meters are located and shows meter readings with visuals and sounds. READy app reads consumption data remotely, even while making phone calls or receiving text messages. Once the meter reading route is complete, the information is automatically sent to the billing program to reduce the administration time of preparing customer invoices.www.flowIQ.com
RIO TRONICS CORP. Capture high-resolution, contact closure digital outputs from Neptune water meters with the RIO Tronics Corp. NT10-4P WaterRead unit. To enable monitoring and controlling of rate and consumption, this unit is fully submersible, with a 10-foot lead wire and a 1/2-inch female conduit fitting. It easily retrofits allT10s, HPT, and TT Series meters with the same device. It also fits between the meter index and meter body, includes original type security seals for resealing, and allows retention of Neptune radio reporting devices. Accuracy is tested by three different labs, and approved for military and industrial use. It enables a direct Neptune meter connection to data loggers, energy management systems, and meter reading systems.www.riotronics.com
SINGER VALVE Singer Valve has designed an innovative vertical diaphragm that rolls while opening and closing, enabling it to lock the valve in place without any friction. This makes for incredible pressure stability from the highest to the lowest flows unlike flat diaphragm or traditional piston-style valves. By reducing pressure, this valve technology also reduces leakage. The rolling diaphragm reacts faster to changing pressures as it typically has much less water volume above the diaphragm enabling it to respond quicker. Sizes range from 6 to 36 inches and are NSF 372 certified.www.singervalve.com
SMITH & LOVELESS The exclusive design of the Smith & Loveless (S&L) Non-Clog Pump lends itself to significant energy efficiency savings for wastewater and stormwater pumping. S&L Non-Clog Pump design features an oversized, stainless steel pump shaft that minimizes overhang, resulting in significantly less shaft deflection and greater pump efficiencies. Close tolerances are in all cases tighter than NEMA specifications. The impeller is also designed for maximum efficiency. By trimming the impellers inside the shrouds, the S&L pump leaves the back shroud full diameter to prevent stringy material from winding around the shaft.www.smithandloveless.com
THE TORO CO. With an intuitive interface and exclusive features for  “smart” control, the new EVOLUTION is an easy choice for residential and light-commercial applications. The user interface was designed with multiple users in mind. Shortcut buttons provide quick access to basic functions while the advanced menu leverages the experience and knowledge of the irrigation professional. The optional Smart Connect plugs into the timing mechanism, enabling it to wirelessly communicate directly with a number of add-on devices–including a weather sensor, handheld remote, multiple soil sensors, and up to two wireless relays.www.toro.com

Microplastics that were fragmented from larger plastics are called secondary microplastics; they are known as primary microplastics if they originate from small size produced industrial beads, care products or textile fibers.
