Water NZ 2019


The Water NZ 2019 conference & exhibition, 18-20 Hamilton, NZ. This event provided a great opportunity to discuss innovations, challenges and solutions with water industry professionals.


Our Armatec team was keen to share the new GDOF18-ARV and Microscrubber. These items are some of our most recent developments made possible by working with customers to solve their issues with innovative designs. Featured on the stand was:

  • Rectangular GDOF-18ARV - latest innovation - built for above-ground air release valves. The design controls odour release, contains spills and provides a battery-powered signal with 3G to enable SCADA network connection. Enabling IoT, odour control in tight urban spaces, protects against sewage spills and is safer by design for operators.

  • Microscrubber - our compact 2-stage odour control technology for the urban environment. This microscrubber proved popular with stand visitors keen to peek under to the hood at the full-scale demonstration unit.

  • Vortex dropper - 3D printed model. This generated plenty of discussions… why not reduce corrosion, dosing and odour control needs in networks, transmissions, and pump stations using vortex droppers?

Re-imagining the water sector with increased efficiency, safety and effectiveness is a responsibility for all of us, and we are well on the way with so many dedicated professionals committed to taking the journey. This year with water policy and strategy review underway, it has also been an opportunity to discuss trends for water health and how we can all engage as kaitiaki to ensure te mana o te wai.

This conference has enabled valuable discussions with clients, suppliers, designers, consultants and industry thought leaders to stimulate ideas, understand problems and search for solutions.

A huge thank you to Water NZ for organising.
