Pentair Showcases Integrated Water Reuse, Wastewater Treatment and Flow Management Solutions at WEFTEC 2014

September 29, 2014

NEW ORLEANS - September 29, 2014 - Pentair is showcasing its latest innovations and integrated solutions for the transfer, flow, treatment and monitoring of clean water and wastewater throughout the world at the Water Environment Federation's Annual Technical Exhibition (WEFTEC) in New Orleans, September 29 - October 1, 2014. The company, a global water, fluid, thermal management and equipment protection partner, provides a global perspective and depth of expertise across industries to help its customers get more food, energy and efficiency from each drop of water.
"At Pentair, we help customers do more with available water, whether it's filtering drinking water, treating wastewater for reuse or the safe return to the environment, and helping to manage bodies of water," said Phil Rolchigo, Ph.D, Pentair's Vice President of Technology. "Our innovations are driven by the goal of helping our customers do more with existing critical resources, working to achieve more effective methods and sustainable outcomes."

At WEFTEC, Pentair experts will be sharing industry best practices and insights at presentations and demonstrations including Rolchigo, who will lead a panel discussion around "The Future of Water Re-use" at the show's Global Center. With more than 32 billion gallons of municipal wastewater produced every day in the United States[*], water re-use-the use of treated wastewater for beneficial purposes including irrigation, industrial uses, and drinking water augmentation-has the potential to increase the nation's total water supply. The panel discussion will focus on the future of water re-use in municipal systems with a focus on advanced technologies and processes to turn waste into revenue. Additional Pentair speakers include:

  • Brian Cantanzaro will be speaking at the Stormwater Pavilion about the Prairie Creek Treatment Train, addressing water quality degradation through the removal of dissolved and particulate nutrients.
  • Robert Mueller will provide in-booth demonstrations of solutions that help reduce the life cycle cost for water booster systems.
  • Andrew Crawford will address the effects of variable frequency drives (VFD) on Submersible Wastewater Pumps, and specifically the issue of system compatibility between drive and rotating equipment.
