H2gO Water Purifier
Aqua Research’s H2gO Purifier is a handheld, 3-ounce device that makes water safe to drink with only 2 button clicks. The purifier never needs replacement parts and was designed for extreme environments. The water treatment device is ideal for campers, travelers, and natural disasters. For a limited time, the water purifier is also available at the company’s Indiegogo campaign.
According to the World Health Organization, over 3.4 million people die each year from waterborne disease. Water disinfection is one of the most effective interventions to save lives, but a large proportion of people in poor economies stop disinfecting due to complexity and on-going cost. In contrast, the H2gO Purifier is sustainable even for people at the poverty line because it is both simple to use and free to operate.
The H2gO Purifier works by converting a few grains of common salt to a powerful disinfecting solution in a matter of seconds. It treats 1 to 20 liters of water at a time. It’s driven by a cell phone battery that can be charged by the integrated solar panel or USB, able to treat 300 liters of water per charge. Only one hour of sunlight makes over 1 gallon of safe water. There is even an LED flashlight for night-time operation.

T80 Universal Transmitter
Process and plant engineers in search of a powerful process analyzer for multiple analytical measurements will find that the Model T80 Universal Transmitter from Electro-Chemical Devices, Inc. provides a versatile, easy-to-use, economical solution for virtually all liquid analytical measurements.
Featuring a highly intelligent digital transmitter protocol, the T80 Universal Transmitter simplifies process measurement and reduces maintenance costs for seven common industrial plant parameters. Process measurement has never been easier or more affordable than with the T80’s virtually plug-and-play capabilities, which simplify daily operations and maintenance while reducing instrumentation costs simultaneously.
The ECD Model T80 Universal Transmitter is a single channel transmitter designed for the continuous measurement of multiple parameters in a general-purpose industrial environment: pH, ORP, pION, Dissolved Oxygen, Turbidity, Conductivity or Resistivity. The Model T80 digitally communicates with any ECD Model S80 Intelligent Sensor and automatically conﬁgures the transmitter’s menus and display screens to the measured parameter. The Model T80 automatically configures to any of the listed measurements so that there is no need to inventory multiple instrument types, saving time and reducing plant operating costs.
The T80 Universal Transmitter is flexible and user-friendly. It offers membrane switch navigation, a simple menu structure and soft key menu choices and an easy-to-read 2 ¾ -x- 1 ½ inch LCD display. The T80 accepts any S80 intelligent sensor or any standard pH, ORP or pION sensor with solution ground using the optional T80 input card. It is available with 4-20 mA output with MODBUS RTU on 24 VDC and 110/220 VAC instruments. The T80 can be configured with optional HART 7 communication and an optional three alarm relay.

CV Series Valves
Vindum Engineering, Inc. (VEI) announces the release of its patented high pressure and high precision CV Series Valves, capable of continuous operation at pressures up to 20,000 PSI. Either On-Off or 3-Way/4-Position models are available. This patented VEI valve design can be used in high temperature applications and/or with corrosive fluids, further enhancing its operating envelope.
This high-pressure model is pneumatically operated via a set of small, low voltage pilot valves. The valves are available in a wide range of seal materials as well as corrosion resistant wetted parts (Stainless Steel or Hastelloy C-276), with either 1/8 or 1/4 inch fittings for high pressure tubing.
This new valve maintains a constant internal fluid volume and does not trap any fluid within the valve body when switched. This is one of the unique aspects of VEI’s patented valve design that delivers superior, reliable performance in a wide range of operating environments.
Fluid Components International
The ST100 Series Flow Meter sets a new industry benchmark in process and plant air/gas flow measurement, delivering unsurpassed adaptability and value to meet plant gas flow measurement applications for today and tomorrow.
The ST100 Flow Meter’s graphical, multivariable, backlit LCD display/readout brings new meaning to the term “process information”. It provides the industry’s most comprehensive information with continuous display of all process measurements and alarm status, and the ability to interrogate for service diagnostics.
The user-friendly ST100 stores up to five unique calibration groups to accommodate broad flow ranges, differing mixtures of the same gas and multiple gases, and obtains up to 1000:1 turndown. An optional, patent-pending SpectraCal Gas Equivalency calibration method lets users select and switch between 10 common gases. An on-board data logger with an easily accessible, removable 2-GB micro-SD memory card capable of storing 21 million readings comes standard.
The ST100 offers three different types of flow sensors to best match user applications. The fast-response FPC-style is a fast response features an integral flow conditioner and protective shroud optimized for compressed air and clean gas applications. The fast-response, general purpose FP-style features a protective shroud and is the sensor used with FCI’s VeriCal in-situ calibration option. For wet or dirty gases, or erratic flows, the unshrouded S-style facilitates easy cleaning and provides a smoothed response.
The ST100 can be calibrated to measure virtually any process gas, including wet gas, mixed gases and dirty gases. The basic insertion style air/gas meter features a thermal flow sensing element that measures flow from 0.25 to 1000 SFPS (0.07 NMPS to 305 NMPS) with accuracy of ±0.75 percent of reading, ±0.5 percent of full scale.
Designed for rugged industrial processes and plants, ST100 Flow Meters include service up to 850ºF and are available with both integral and remote (up to 1000 feet) electronics versions. The ST100 is agency approved for hazardous environments, including the entire instrument, the transmitter and the rugged, NEMA 4X/IP67 rated enclosure. Instrument approvals in addition to ATEX and IECEx include FM and FMc.
Mi.Data is a web-based portal that enables municipalities to strengthen relationships with consumers by providing a consolidated view of water and electricity usage online. Usage data that is collected and stored by Mi.Net, an advanced two-way AMI system graphically presented to consumers in a format allowing them to monitor their water and electricity consumption; set preferences to receive informational alerts on water bans, usage goals, budget thresholds and data anomalies, which may indicate potential household water leaks; and compare current usage to previous time periods (by day, week, or month).
