[i] SEWER SYSTEMS
Low-pressure, gravity-independent, contour-following sewage collection systems were pioneered by E/One. E/One Sewer® systems have proven to be an economical and effective method of sewering otherwise difficult areas, such as flat, wet, rocky and hilly terrain. At the heart of an E/One Sewer is the grinder pump, developed by E/One. These units accept household sanitary waste, grind it into a fine slurry, and pressurise it to permit transport through small-diameter pipes. E/One Sewers servce more than 500,000 users daily around the world.
[ii] UTILITY SYSTEMS
E/One's expertise in the detection and measurement of submicron particles has led to the development of a line of critical monitoring instruments for electric utilities. The Generator Condition Monitor was designed to warn of potential failures in electric power generators by detecting the submicron particles emitted in the generator's cooling gas during early phases of overheating or arcing.
Furthermore, because it focuses solely on these two specialised areas, the Company has developed an unparalleled reputation for manufacturing excellence and quality control processes, hence their trademark "Engineered To Do One Job Perfectly."
