One-Stop Shopping at Orenco: Wastewater Collection & Treatment, Composite Buildings, and Control Panels
SUTHERLIN, ORE., September 25, 2018 — Orenco Systems® will showcase its three unique product lines again this year at the Water Environment Federation’s Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC), held September 29th through October 3rd at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center. Visitors to Booth #1501 will be treated to Orenco’s leading-edge products in Wastewater Collection & Treatment, Composites, and Controls.
A scale model of Orenco’s new Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) will be prominently featured. The complete package is a turn-key denitrification system for municipal, commercial, and industrial applications. This proven MBBR technology works well with Orenco’s AdvanTex®AX-Max™ systems or other secondary treatment and can be custom designed to fit specific projects. “Our MBBR is an excellent solution to meet the growing demand for a compact, pre-plumbed denitrification treatment system that's easy to install and operate,” says Blake Johnston, Orenco’s Sales Manager for Wastewater Products. “We’re excited about the continued expansion of our wastewater treatment product line and the increasing options available to our customers.”
Orenco Sewers™, the cutting-edge solution for community sewering, will also be highlighted. Orenco Sewers offer low capital and life-cycle costs and enable more cost-effective treatment. They provide on-lot primary treatment, with clarified effluent being transported to the treatment facility via small-diameter, shallowly buried mainlines. Orenco will display its complete STEP (septic tank effluent pump) package that brings the ease of specifying, installing, operating, and maintaining an Orenco Sewer to a whole new level.
Orenco will also feature a full-size cutaway of an AdvanTex AX-Max Wastewater Treatment System, Orenco’s recirculating packed-bed filter with a highly efficient, engineered textile treatment media. AdvanTex received WEF’s 2011 “Innovative Technology Award” and is in use all over the world. The technology is known for its reliable, small footprint and low maintenance requirements.
Tristian Bounds, P.E., Orenco’s Lead Research and Development Engineer, will present “Net Positive Water – The Hafer Urban Frontier House” on Tuesday, October 2ndat 4:30 p.m. in Room 342. The Urban Frontier House uses a variety of sustainable technologies, including an AdvanTex AX20 Greywater Treatment System, to remain entirely off the grid. Tristian will also present “Pressure Collection and Small Reuse Treatment Systems” at Orenco’s booth (#1501) on Wednesday, October 3rdat 1:55 p.m.
Orenco Composites™ (orencocomposites.com), a division of Orenco Systems, will display a single-piece, virtually maintenance-free DuraFiber™ building. These buildings are designed not to leak, warp, crack, or splinter. And they won’t rot or rust, because no wood or steel is used in their construction. Orenco Composites reduces the workload of busy engineers by providing these ultra-strong – yet lightweight – pre-packaged buildings that offer a variety of special options, like windows, heating, cooling, lighting, and ventilation systems. DuraFiber buildings are a hassle-free custom-building solution that frees engineers and utilities to focus on their more challenging design issues.
Capping off the booth, Orenco Controls™ (orencocontrols.com) will have a selection of industrial control panels on hand, highlighting various control and monitoring capabilities. A stand-alone OLS Series panel will show off its sleek design and logic controller. This control panel has clean interface graphics that make it easy to operate. OLS panels use variable-frequency drives (VFDs) to optimize system performance and reduce energy use.
A second OLS control panel will be displayed inside the DuraFiber building with the VFDs mounted on an inside wall, demonstrating an effective method of eliminating heat rise and maintaining the integrity of an electrical control system.
Orenco Controls will also showcase four municipal lift station control panels with various features and advantages, including a grinder panel that can handle difficult tie-in locations, an electromechanical duplex panel that can be manufactured on short notice for urgent jobs, a basic MVP duplex panel that’s economical but still offers logic and data logging, and a panel that uses Orenco’s VeriComm®web-hosted monitoring service.
Based in Sutherlin, Oregon, Orenco Systems has been designing and manufacturing energy-efficient water and wastewater products since 1981. The company employs about 370 people and has more than 300 points of distribution worldwide. For more information, visit orenco.com.
