: ITT Introduces Innovative WW Solutions In the Middle
PLAINS, N.Y., May 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ITT
Industries, Inc. (NYSE:ITT) has been chosen to design,
build and commission the aeration, pumping and mixing
system at the Sulaibiya Wastewater Treatment and
Reclamation plant in Kuwait. ITT Industries is known for
its innovative fluid technologies and quality Sanitaire
and Flygt products.
The Sulaibiya plants will
be the largest water reclamation and reuse center of its
type in the world. In the Middle East, a region which
represents almost 5 percent of the world's population but
less than 1 percent of its water resources, the Sulaibiya
facility will help define the direction of future
development in the area.
"This is a perfect
example of our objective of migrating from a provider of
products to a provider of total systems solutions to the
municipal and industrial treatment markets. Our products
and our design capabilities strengthen the value of the
solutions we provide to our customers, and will accelerate
our growth in our core market," said Robert Ayers,
President of ITT Industries Fluid Technologies.
The initial capacity of the
Sulaibiya Wastewater Treatment and Reclamation plant will
be 375,000 m(3)/day, and will ultimately expand to a
capacity of 600,000 m(3)/day. ITT's involvement in the
project commenced in January 2003 with the award of a
$10.5 million contract from The National Company for
Mechanical & Electrical Works. The plant is scheduled
to be complete in December 2004.
ITT's Project Manager
Trevor Day and Lead Engineers Ewan Bennet and Alan Thomson
will work in conjunction with ILF, an Austrian Engineering
and Consulting firm and The National Company for
Mechanical & Electrical Works. They will ensure
precision installation of more than 50,000 Sanitaire
Silver Series Diffusers and almost 2,600 Sanitaire Coarse
Bubble Diffusers required for this impressive facility.
They will also oversee the installation of 13 Blowers, 45
Mixers, 72 Flow Boosters, 27 Recirculation Pumps and over
25 kilometers of air main and flooring pipe work
throughout. All installation has been designed with
consideration for the intense demands of Kuwait's climate.
ITT Industries, Inc.
supplies advanced technology products and services in key
markets including: electronic interconnects and switches;
defense communication, opto-electronics, information
technology and services; fluid and water management and
other specialty products. Headquartered in White Plains,
NY, the company generated $4.99 billion in 2002 sales. In
addition to the New York Stock Exchange, ITT Industries
stock is traded on the Midwest, Pacific, London, Paris and

Water : UV Pure Unveils Crossfire Technology
VEGAS, NV – March 18, 2003 – Designed to solve the
risky problems inherent in conventional UV systems, UV
Pure Technologies has unveiled the Hallett System designed
with patented Crossfire Technology at this year’s Water
Quality Association Convention and Exhibition. UV Pure’s
Hallett systems, recognized worldwide as superior to
conventional UV systems, are available for residential,
commercial and community water applications up to 5,000
UV systems have been used
for years to purify drinking water. However, with
conventional systems, safety is not completely assured as
the system may be on, but not working, placing health at
risk. The major problems associated with conventional
- Incomplete UV
- False Sense of Safety
due to lack of sensors and fail-safe shut-off
- UV Output dropping to
- Frequent and difficult
designed by water scientist Ron Hallett, solves these
problems completely to provide customers with the most
effective UV treatment available. Incorporating two
proprietary high-output lamps, with elliptical reflectors
that target pathogens with radiation from 360°, Crossfire
technology ensures the highest UV dose possible (65 mJ/cm)
to deactivate pathogens and provide safe drinking water.
It also makes maintaining the system as easy as changing a
light bulb because system draining is no longer required.
Additionally, dual smart UV
sensors are mounted in air ensuring they cannot foul. The
lamps are air-cooled and maintain consistent UV output.
Computerized alarms and an auto shut-off fail-safe valve
are also part of Crossfire to ensure that if water quality
is compromised in any way, the automatic shutdown feature
and built-in alarms ensure that only 100% purified water
flows through the tap.
With ANSI/NSF 55 Class A
Certification, UV Pure’s Crossfire technology employs a
patented self-cleaning mechanism utilizing a stainless
steel wiper to continually clean the inside of the quartz
tube, eliminating fouling and the need for a water
softener. This also makes abrasive quartz cleaning a thing
of the past.
“Choosing a water
purification system for your home, commercial operation or
community is one of the most critical decisions you will
ever make,” stated Ron Hallett, Founder and Chief
Technology Office, UV Pure Technologies. “With a Hallett
system using Crossfire Technology you can be sure that
your water is receiving the most effective UV dosage rates
for removal of all pathogens including viruses, bacteria,
cryptosporidium, giardia and legionella.”
UV Pure Technologies will
be demonstrating the Hallett system with Crossfire
Technology in Booth number 1273 for the duration of the
About UV Pure Technologies,
UV Pure Technologies leads
the world in the design, manufacture and distribution of
next-generation, technically advanced UV drinking water
purification systems. UV Pure’s Hallett systems
incorporate patented Crossfire UV radiation technology
which is fail-safe and virtually maintenance-free.
