IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition 2016

We have recently returned from exhibiting at the World Water Congress & Exhibition 2016 hosted by IWA and this time held in Brisbane, QLD Australia.

We found it was an absolultely wonderful event with professionals and exhibitors from around the world sharing their expertise for the greater purpose of better water management - a precious global resource and a truly international challenge.

We thank all those that visited our stand and their interest in our water industry solutions including Green Dome Odour Filters, Biological Scrubbers and other fibreglass, air pollution control and odour control systems, and we wish them well in their travels and future business.

The IWA World Water Conference & Exhibition

The IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition is the global event for water professionals, bringing together over 5,500 water, environment and related professionals from more than 100 countries and offers new insights into how pioneering science, technological innovation and leading practices shape the major transformation in water management that is underway.

Precision FRP Fan manufacturing & balancing

As part of the manufacture and factory-commissioning of our fans, we precision-balance all of our full-FRP impellors.

Here is a demonstration of the accuracy of this balancing - a coin standing upright on the fan during installation and commissioning with the fan at full speed. Vibration is minimised and excess noise and energy loss is minimised - meaning the fan is more efficient and less prone to wear & tear. This is with a full-FRP fan impellor blade giving maximum corrosion resistance.

Armatec Green Dome® Odour Filter Success Stories

Business is better now for the Mangawhai thanks to the Green Dome® Odour Filter.

The Mangawhai wastewater sewer network is a combination of pressure sewers and a gravity network. The main pump station at Mangawhai Village is located just 10 metres from a gift shop. There were odour complaints from this pump station as soon as it started operation. “The odour was bad. Customers noticed it immediately,” the shop owners said. “But now there hasn’t been even a whiff since you installed it. You wouldn’t even know the pump station was there.” The engineer for the Mangawhai wastewater scheme is very pleased with the result. “The Green Domes® are working well,” he stated.

The odour was gone as soon as it was installed. It is just fantastic.

Following the first two successful Green Domes® at Mangawhai in 2010, more than 30 installations have been done throughout New Zealand and Australia to eliminate odour releases from pump stations, air release valves and manholes.


Redwood Forest a more enjoyable destination

Long Mile Road in Rotorua leads to the popular Redwood Forests, a mountain biking and walking recreation area for locals and tourists alike. A roadside sewer air release valve caused a ‘stink’ detracting from the nature experience.

In 2011, a Green Dome® Odour Filter was installed. Instantly the H2S sewage odour was gone. Dennis, a local who walks his dog along this road every day, and was the first to congratulate Armatec for eliminating the odour immediately after installation.  “The Green Domes work. Before it was installed, we had complaints about the smell of death at this location” says Riaan Rossouw, principal engineer for Hydrus Engineering Consultants – who bikes this road frequently in the Rotorua Redwood Forest. After Green Domes® were installed, Rotorua District Council received unsolicited phone calls of congratulations for taking care of sewage odours. This is a welcome change from the normal phone calls which are usually complaints when things go wrong.
