Supercritical Fluid Technologies Inc.
The SFT-10 pump can pressurize carbon dioxide up to 10,000 psi (69 MPa) at flow rates from 0.01 to 24.0 ml/min. The characterisitics make the pump useful in high pressure applications, including supercritical fluid extraction, supercritical fluid reaction chemistry and chromatography. It utilizes reliable, dual sapphire syringe pump technology to achieve high pressures rapidly. The Peltier chiller has cooling capabilities that maintain the temperature at the pump heads low enough to ensure the carbon dioxide remains liquid.
BRAE introduces configurable Rainwater Harvesting Systems for commercial, institutional and residential applications that can reduce water consumption by up to 65 percent. BRAE’s commercial and institutional systems offer storage capacities of 200 to over 2 million gallons, and manage the filtration, storage, distribution and treatment functions typical to rainwater systems. Rainwater harvesting is ideal for landscape irrigation, especially in
drought-prone areas where municipalities impose water restrictions and can contribute up to 24 percent of LEED points
available for green buildings.
Control Company's new Counter Pen is a combination marker and digital counter designed for the lab and plant. Each time a black mark is made with the felt-tipped pen, it automatically sounds a beep, and LCD displays the counts. Use it to count cell growth on petri dishes, inventory parts, and tally samples received.
Water Innovate’s N-TOX instruments serving Severn Trent Water are patented toxicity monitors used for detecting nitrification inhibition events in wastewater treatment facilities that can lead to inadequate treatment performance and discharges to the environment with high ammonia concentrations. N-TOX has applications in greenhouse gas monitoring to reduce the carbon footprint. It is also capable of measuring nitrous oxide off-gases from a variety of wastewater treatment processes including activated sludge, sequencing batch reactors, industrial continuously stirred bioreactors, and trickling filters.
Ecologico-Logic’s prototype waste reduction system—known as The Muncher—reduces the weight and volume of organic and many types of inorganic waste. The Muncher achieves its high-volume throughput by combining superior mechanical efficiency with powerful, naturally occurring, aerobic (oxygen-breathing) microorganisms in a patent-protected process that greatly accelerates waste digestion while doing no damage to the environment.
Parker Hannifin Corporation
Parker Hannifin Corporation’s THM Analyzer is an on-site analytical system that measures trihalomethane (THM) concentration at ppb levels in less than 30 minutes. It is an integrated Purge-and-Trap Gas Chromatograph (GC) that can help operators optimize water treatment at the plant and evaluate water age in the distribution system for improved control over the formation of THMs. The THM Analyzer was designed for high-precision, high accuracy measurement of THM and offers a full complement of calibration and quantization routines. Analyzer calibration is streamlined with detailed menu options, while push-button operation provides sample purging, THM component separation, and data analysis.
Mueller Systems’ 420 RDM is a remote disconnect meter (RDM) that allows municipalities to remotely manage water services through AMI networks from the office or from their vehicles. The 420 RDM is fully-integral with 5/8" positive displacement (PD) meters—in standard AWWA laying lengths—without requiring any re-plumbing. It can be used for complete water service shutoffs or configured to limit shutoffs to provide life sustenance flow for utilities that have policies against completely terminating water supplies to residential customers.
Emerson Process Management
Emerson’s Rosemount Analytical WQP Systems measure in real time fluoride, ammonia, ammonia and monochloramine, and ammonia and fluoride together. The systems are reagent- and pump-free, reducing both the initial cost and maintenance, and they are based on ion monitoring technology. Their menu-driven industrial ion selective analyzer is capable of calibrating, outputting, displaying and controlling in ppm units. The systems come pre-configured, pre-calibrated and qualified to install, plug in, and immediately place in service.
Real Tech’s Real UV254 Hi-Pure / Security Online monitors detect trace amounts of organic contamination in finished drinking waters and high-purity waters in real time. The monitors use the company’s Split-Sense Pro technology to provide sensitivity and reliability at a fraction of the cost of alternative organics monitors, such as TOC. The U.S. EPA National Homeland Security Research Centre’s Technology Testing and Evaluation Program recently evaluated the product and found it had great success at detecting accidental/intentional contamination events in drinking water distribution systems. The monitor also has applications in ultrapure industrial processes.
Eco-Tec’s Recoflo Demineralizer reduces waste generation without the need for a mixed bed polisher or the risk of resin cross-contamination by using ion exchange with compressed bed and counter-current technology. The demineralizer can produce water with a conductivity as low as 0.1 μS/cm (10 megohm/cm resistivity) with less than 0.010 mg/L of silica using only cation and anion beds. Its resin beds are six inches to 24 inches deep, requiring only up to 15 percent of the resin volume that conventional ion exchange systems require, and it uses less than 15 percent of the resin’s total exchange capacity.
Trojan Technologies’ TrojanUVSigna is an open channel wastewater UV disinfection system specifically designed for large-scale disinfection applications. The system includes 1000W TrojanUV Solo Lamp technology; a solo lamp driver; a staggered, inclined lamp arrangement; ActiClean chemical/mechanical sleeve cleaning; and a built-in module lifting device.
XPell, a product that indicates and prevents the formation of peroxides in organic solvents, removes the need for periodic testing and disposal of peroxide-forming solvents. Use of this inorganic material improves laboratory safety, helps to prevent peroxide-related explosions/accidents, and extends the life of solvents. It is designed for university chemistry labs, analytical labs, pharmaceutical labs, pharmaceutical manufacturers, research labs and hazardous waste disposal company applications.
