The app was developed to help engineers access accurate and up-to-date coatings information via mobile technology. If a new product is introduced, or an old product is no longer manufactured, the Water & Wastewater App displays the updated information.
From conventional treatment to membrane treatment, digesters to clarifiers, the app provides coating solutions for more than 35 functional areas across six different water and wastewater facility types. For example, in sewer collection, the app suggests coatings for the following six areas: the lift/pump station, force main sewer, gravity sewer manhole, air release vault, sewer trunk line and junction splitter box.
The app’s home screen allows the user to select the type of functional area in need of coating. Once the site has been selected, labeled areas of the plant appear. By clicking on a labeled area, the app will populate specific coating recommendations for it.
The recommendation includes a primary coating system (primer, intermediate and top coat), dry film thickness for each coat and total mils for the system. Surface preparation tips and process descriptions are also included in the recommendation. By clicking on a product name, the app pulls up a detailed product data sheet.
“Water and wastewater coatings from Sherwin-Williams are formulated to return assets to service quickly,” says Kevin Morris, Sherwin-Williams regional water and wastewater market segment director. “The Water & Wastewater App is an extension of that fast-return-to-service focus, allowing engineers to access comprehensive coating solutions at their fingertips.”
The Water & Wastewater App evolved from Sherwin-Williams’ deep familiarity with the specific needs of the industry’s operations, demonstrating commitment to service and logistical support for its customers. The app is optimized for iOS tablet devices and all Android devices.
