Orenco Returns to WEFTEC with Prelos™, the Sewer Solution
SUTHERLIN, ORE., September 30, 2021 — Orenco Systems’ experts in wastewater collection and treatment, composite structures, and electrical controls are excited to return in person to WEFTEC, the Water Environment Federation’s Technical Exhibition and Conference, held October 16th through 20th in Chicago, Illinois. Orenco’s booth – #2425 in the south building – will feature its Prelos Wastewater Collection System and AdvanTex® Wastewater Treatment System, along with the latest technologies in composites and controls.
Orenco Water™ (orenco.com), a division of Orenco Systems, will display a full-size Prelos Processor™ cutaway, including a complete pumping package. The Processor is the core of a Prelos Sewer™ – pressurized liquid-only sewer that combines on-lot treatment of solids with small-diameter, shallow-bury sewer lines that follow the contour of the land at minimal burial depth to significantly lower the cost of sewer installation. “Choosing the right sewer system can save millions of dollars,” says Mike Saunders, Orenco’s National Sales Manager for commercial and municipal projects. “Our liquid-only sewer was installed in 2015 in Vero Beach, Florida, at half the estimated cost of gravity sewer, and the city’s director of water and sewer has been thrilled with its performance.” An ongoing Prelos project in Mosses, Alabama, is featured on the cover of the September 2021 issue of Water Environment & Technology magazine, available at WEFTEC.
The Prelos Processor is a complete, high-quality package of compatible, long-lifespan components, including a patented1 tank designed for superior solids removal, a passively self-cleaning effluent filter, and the ClickTight™ connection system. ClickTight allows for the quick connection of a pump and floats to a control panel while eliminating the need for field splicing and wire nuts. The Orenco booth will feature a complete ClickTight display with control panel and floats.
Orenco Water will also display its AdvanTex line of wastewater treatment systems, including the AX-Max™, a recirculating packed-bed filter with a highly efficient, engineered textile media. The AX-Max is pre-plumbed and easy to install, either individually or in multi-tank arrays. Its unique modular design and simple construction make wastewater treatment available when and where it’s needed. When combined with Prelos, AdvanTex provides an ideal solution for decentralized wastewater treatment, septic-to-sewer, and small or planned communities.
Orenco Composites™ (orencocomposites.com), another division of Orenco Systems, will showcase its virtually maintenance-free DuraFiber™ building. These pre-packaged buildings are ultra-strong, but also lightweight. They’re made of fiberglass using a closed-molding – not sprayed up – single-piece construction process designed to ensure a leakproof, seamless structure. And because no wood or exposed steel is used in their construction, they won’t rot or rust. DuraFiber buildings are available with a variety of special options – like windows, heating, cooling, lighting, and ventilation systems – making them a hassle-free project solution that allows engineers to focus on more challenging design issues.
Orenco Controls™ (orencocontrols.com), the third division of Orenco Systems, will feature two of its industrial control panels, showcasing their various control and monitoring capabilities. First off is a stand-alone OLS-Series panel with logic controller and user-friendly interface graphics that make it easy to operate. OLS Control Panels come with either integrated starters (an economical choice) or variable-frequency drives (VFDs), which optimize system operation. These panels are ideal for a variety of pumping applications, including lift stations, water boosting, stormwater pump stations, dewatering, and sludge pumping. A second OLS panel will be located inside the DuraFiber building with the VFDs mounted on an inside wall, a method that eliminates heat rise and maintains the integrity of the electrical control system.
Founded in 1981, Orenco has become an industry leader, with about 400 employees and some 330 points of distribution across North and Central America, Australasia, Europe, and Africa. Its products and technologies are in use in more than 70 countries around the world. For more information, visit orenco.com.
