AkzoNobel Surface Chemistry
AkzoNobel Surface Chemistry’s Berol® 609 is an alcohol ethoxylate blend designed to match the key properties and performance of nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs) typically used in industrial degreasing formulations (NP9 and NP10 ). At the same time, this product provides a safe, biodegradable alternative and exceeds the degreasing power of other NPE replacements. Completely water-soluble, it may be used as a direct, drop-in replacement for NP9 and NP10 in aqueous cleaning formulations.
CBI Polymers’ DeconGel™ decontaminates a broad range of surfaces, including concrete, steel, painted or unpainted, glove boxes, hoods, and casks. The gel’s binding properties trap and encapsulate a wide spectrum of radioisotopes and chemicals in a simple, no-preparation process. Users simply apply, let dry, and peel, and the dried film containing the contaminants can be disposed of according to appropriate regulations.
Oldcastle Precast’s Cell Block™ is a precast modular foundation for small and community wind turbines. It has a precast post tensioned-block system that can be assembled in various configurations onsite with minimal site preparation. The modules are non-ground penetrating, making them perfect for use where ground penetration is either not allowed, such as landfill or environmentally sensitive applications, or impractical due to hard-to-penetrate ground conditions.
Forston Labs’ NavSpec™ Plus Spectrophotometer and Fluorometer allows the user to collect a full wavelength spectrum (absorbance, percent transmittance, or intensity) in less than one second. Once the peak wavelength is determined, the user can determine the concentration of a solution or monitor rates of reaction. The optical range is 380 to 950 nm (VIS-NIR), and the meter has an optical resolution of 2.5 nm.
Advanced Drainage Systems
ADS’s 36LP is a plastic leaching chamber designed for challenging installations, such as those in high groundwater conditions or with other site restrictions. The chamber’s 20-degree integral articulating joint works in straight or contoured septic leach field applications. The product incorporates a “lock and drop” joint that provides a more positive connection during installation and backfill, and also features a universal inlet/outlet end cap, two inspection vent ports with easy-to-remove knockouts and diamond plate texture for slip resistance.
AMS’s PowerProbe 9100-SK direct push system is portable, maneuverable, and versatile. The rugged rubber tracks keep the unit moving when soil conditions get soft, wet, or muddy, with minimal disturbance to the worksite. The probe can be easily removed to allow use of the carrier vehicle and accessories, such as the bucket, pallet forks, and backfill blade. The machine also features a powder-coated finish, anodized metal power track, spring-loaded pull yoke, and a 50 ft-lb hydraulic hammer.
MIDAC’s open path Fourier transform infrared spectrometers can measure extreme path lengths, which enables users to analyze methane, carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide with up to single-digit ppb detection limits. A 60-inch source array sends an infrared beam to a receiving telescope that can be more than a kilometer away; the spectrometer measures the air between them.
Assmann’s molded-in full drain outlet assembly for tanks that are 2,500 gallons and larger enables operators to empty the vessel without using mechanically installed nozzles. The assembly can be used where heavy solids or salts may accumulate in the bottom of the tank. It is available in 3 inches and 4 inches, as well as in variations of 316 stainless steel, titanium and hastelloy construction.
Pepperl+Fuchs’ Advanced Diagnostic Module DTM software monitors the quality of fieldbus communication for FOUNDATION fieldbus H1 and PROFIBUS PA networks, and includes updates that speed fieldbus commissioning. This smart software tool translates data provided by the ADM into actionable information. It can run on a server in the control room, turning the complete fieldbus infrastructure into an open book that can be read even without expert knowledge.
Kimberly-Clark Professional’s WypAll X90 cloths provide 75 percent more oil absorption and 35 percent more water absorption than WypAll X80 wipers. The product is ideal for heavy wiping, prepping surfaces with solvents, and cleaning metal shavings and rough surfaces. The cloths are manufactured with hydro-entangling polyester fiber for softness and oil absorbency, and wood fiber for water absorbency.
BioAir Solutions’ EcoPure® Mini is a compact dual-technology odor control system that uses the company’s EcoBase™ structured, synthetic biotricking filter media. It eliminates hydrogen sulfide and volatle organic compounds without using hazardous chemicals. The system can handle airstreams ranging from 50 to 1,000 cfm and comes pre-installed on a stainless steel skid, making installation possible in less than a day.
Moyno Inc.’s metering pump has enhanced pumping elements and VFD/motor controls that expand the scope of application and optimize economical and efficient performance, particularly when dosing, sampling, and metering low-flow liquids. The VFD/motor controls improve metering accuracy and repeatability. The pump’s progressing cavity design results in a flow free from pulsation and variation in velocity and volume, which prevents waste and mixture imbalance.
Hydro-Guard’s telemetry controlled, SCADA compatible, S.M.A.R.T Flushing System is designed for maximum water conservation as well as two way/real-time management and water quality improvement. One operator can manage multiple sites throughout a distribution system remotely, viewing data feeds and communicating with each site in virtual real time. The system flushes water distribution lines when the residual level drops below the user-defined disinfectant level; on a pre-set schedule by selecting day(s) of the week, time of day duration of flush; at the most convenient times for customers; and with the least amount of discharged water possible
Bell & Gossett
Bell & Gossett’s Impact™ series of high-efficiency submersible wastewater pumps has a self-cleaning impeller and casing. The pumps are configured to process solids more easily and to reduce clogging while improving hydraulic efficiency. The air-filled motor, dual mechanical seal, and seal chamber work to enhance overall pump efficiency and durability. Less wear of pump components over longer periods of time reduces both maintenance and energy costs. The pump’s seals feature better leak detection and are designed with hard faces that endure abrasive conditions in wastewater applications.
Wilden Pump and Engineering Co.
Wilden’s Advanced metal series T1510 air-operated double-diaphragm pumps, known as the Brahma, are designed for harsh solid-handling applications. This completely submersible product is a 76mm (3 inch) flap-valve pump with bolted construction. The pump’s large internal clearances and top-suction/bottom-discharge operation eliminate clogging, which allows for flow rates up to 977 lpm (258 gpm) and maximum pressures to 8.6 bar (125 psig) with a maximum dry-suction lift capability of up to 7.4m (24.4 feet).
