GF Piping Systems has announced a re-design of its mechanical joint for the Fuseal corrosive waste piping system. The new joint features an EPDM O-Ring seal that accommodates system expansion and/or contraction as well as intermittent temperatures up to 210°F. The system is resistant to the corrosive action of alkalis, alcohols, acids, solvents and salt solutions, and according to the company, waste streams that rapidly degrade metallic pipe, such as dilute mineral acids and aqueous acid salts have no effect on the Fuseal system. They say that it will not rust, pit, scale, corrode or be affected by electrolysis. The new Fuseal mechanical joint seal provides for up to 1 inch of expansion or contraction during temperature cycling without losing the seal, allowing customers to place it in continuous temperature services as high as 180°F and intermittent temperature services up to 210°F.

Metals Loading Study Supports Milwaukee Finishers' Stand Against Regulations: Then and Now

In July of this year, our NASF Report featured a major success for the surface finishing industry, the results of a 2014-2016 study of wastewater discharged to the POTWs in Milwaukee.  What follows here is the story going back 30 years, when an initial study of Milwaukee metal finishers’ discharge to the POTWs dramatically refuted the negative image portrayed by others.  It’s only gotten better since.
