    The Colombian Association of Sanitary and Environmental Engineering – ACODAL is a not-for-profit trade association.  It brings together most of the members of the water, sanitation and environmental sector. The ACODAL 2017 event had more than 2000 attendees present.

    Several institutions, researchers and industry professionals discussed aspects of sustainability in the fields of water, sanitation, environment and renewable energy. Mueller and Singer Valve were two companies that were attendance at ACODAL 2017 that are CalCo clients. Mueller is known for their innovative Water Distribution Products of superior quality. The company creates products such as fire hydrants, gate valves, and other water distribution products.

    Mueller plans to acquire Singer, a manufacturer of automatic control valves. This acquisition further positions Mueller Water Products to provide product offerings for pressure monitoring, pressure management and non-revenue water remediation with a combination of automatic control valves, pipe condition assessment and leak detection. All the attendees of ACODAL 2017 had a great networking opportunity and gained useful information about the future of the industry.

  • Fire Hydrant & Pump Cutaway for Ohio Training School

    Posted on February 10th, 2017 admin No comments

    CalCo Cutaways completed a project for a fire training school in Ohio. We created a fire hydrant cutaway and a motorized pump cutaway, and put each one on its own rolling stand so it’s easy to move and transport when used for training.

    The pump was rescued from an old fire truck. Full color coding was painted on the pump cutaway to show the water flow path. The pump panel was included to allow for the actuation of the valves. The pump cutaway is also motorized to show what a driver that’s connected to the pump looks like when it’s activated.

    Firefighters use fire hydrant and pump cutaways to educate and empower their teams. These tangible training models provide firsthand instruction to firefighters so they learn and have a better understanding on the internal structures of hydrants and pumps—two of the most important tools firefighters use on the job. These cutaways provide hands-on experience and help firefighters visualize how a hydrant and pump’s internal components look and fit together. By knowing how each one works, firefighters can boost their confidence and strengthen their efficiency in the field.
