USST Congratulates USF Students on WEFTEC Design Competition

When USST staff members attended WEFTEC, we were pleased to learn that students from our own backyard at USF Tampa won first place in the Wastewater Design competition.

The national competition is intended to promote “real world” design experience for students interested in pursuing an education and/or career in water engineering and sciences.

To congratulate the students, U.S. Submergent Technologies sponsored the campus FWEA and AWWA monthly chapter meeting. USST CEO Denver Stutler gave a presentation about the Combination³® technology and its various applications in the marketplace. Following the presentation, the students asked great questions about the technology, the civil engineering industry, and starting a business.

We had a great time interacting with the students and look forward possible collaborations!

USST Exhibits at Water Jet Technology Association Conference

Back to the Big Easy! U.S. Submergent Technologies recently exhibited at the Water Jet Technology Association Expo in New Orleans. More than 600 attendees and 300 exhibitors were present. Attendees included people from various areas of the water industry who were interested in new technology and products to the marketplace.

U.S. Submergent Technologies brought the model 360HD Combination³® truck, and it was a big hit! Our unique capabilities overcome the limitations of regular vacuum or combination trucks. That’s why we’ve coined the term Combination³® – to distinguish our third component, the downhole system that allows us to perform sand and grit removal while the plant remains online!

Here are some photos from the event!


U.S. Submergent Technologies recently attended the largest water conference in world – WEFTEC! The show was at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

WEFTEC boasted an attendance of more than 20,000 water professionals and 1,000 exhibitors to take up nearly 300,000 net square feet of space.

U.S. Submergent Technologies brought the 360HD Combination³® truck which impressed many of our booth guests!

Our booth visitors were surprised to learn that the 360HD is not a regular vacuum truck like the others displayed at WEFTEC. Our unique third component – the downhole system – gives our truck superior capabilities and overcomes the limitations of regular vacuum trucks.

Overall, we received positive feedback from our guests, and we are excited to pursue more opportunities across the country and the world!

Take a look at some of our pictures:

U.S. Submergent is Headed to WEFTEC!

U.S. Submergent Technologies is headed to one of the biggest water shows in the country – WEFTEC – and we are bringing our sand and grit removal truck, 360HD.

The show begins September 29 and will go until October 1. There will be more than 22,000 attendees, with 85% of those in the wastewater industry. We can’t wait to show the new grit removal combination truck and explain how it works to people in the industry.

USST coined the term “Combinaton³”® to differentiate our grit removal trucks’ capabilities from most combination trucks in the marketplace. Most combination trucks feature vacuum and jetter technology. The Combination³® trucks adds a third component that overcomes the limitations of vacuum trucks – our proprietary downhole system. With the third component that most other trucks lack, we are able to clean in submerged environments and handle the removal of high viscosity material, such as heavy crude oil.

We are looking forward to meeting WEFTEC attendees and explaining how our equipment could be of value to them or their customers. Our booth number is #9032, so please stop by and say hi!


Grit Removal Completed in Central Florida

U.S. Submergent Technologies was asked to perform work at an eight million gallon per day water reclamation facility in Central Florida. The model 949 Combination³® truck removed 54 cubic yards of sand in 4 days.

Here is a before and after photo of our grit removal service:

Extremely Powerful New Combination Truck Excels In Difficult Cleaning Situations

An immensely powerful new combination truck, designed to effectively remove sand, grit and other debris in extremely difficult cleaning situations, has been introduced by U.S. Submergent Technologies, headquartered in Sarasota, Florida.

The new model 360-HD is a multi-purpose cleaning truck that utilizes the GritGone Process® and USST’s coined Combination³® technology (a unique combination of jetter, vacuum and downhole pump) to provide a complete, stand-alone cleaning system for large diameter lines, digesters, grit chambers, lift stations, water treatment plants, ponds, lagoons, and other hard-to-clean environments.

The model 360-HD Combination³® truck is a true behemoth in the world of combination trucks. Unlike conventional trucks that feature only one hydraulic pump, the 360-HD utilizes FOUR 8” hydraulic pumps (each pumping 2,500 gpm), enabling it to pump/separate sand and water at up to 10,000 gallons per minute! In addition, it delivers up to 1,100 horsepower, providing maximum power to each of the components. This power far exceeds the capability of standard vacuum-only cleaning systems, and provides it the ability to remove submerged debris and handle low-viscosity fluids, where standard combination trucks are simply not up to the task.

This extreme, heavy-duty truck also performs in surcharged conditions, thereby allowing the facility to remain completely “on-line”. No shut down is needed, no bypass pumping is required, and the plant does not have to be taken out of service, resulting in savings of time and money.

The 360-HD features an extra-long hydraulic knuckle boom crane, with up to 49 feet of reach from the center and 180-degree rotation — to access even hard-to-reach places with ease.

FRWA Conference 2014 – Orlando, FL

The U.S. Submergent Technologies team recently attended the Florida Rural Water Association Conference as an exhibitor. USST CEO Denver Stutler gave a “Sand & Grit Removal” presentation to the wastewater track, which educated and informed attendees on the model 949 Combination³®Truck and the GritGone Process® capabilities.

At our booth, we talked to many individuals whose plants experience problems with sand and grit getting into the pipes and causing capacity issues. They are often times faced with a decision to shut their plants down completely in order to clean. We described how our process can serve as a solution to those who cannot take their plants offline.

The last day of the conference, we had a surprise visit from Old Blue!
