Moore Industries’ 2-channel MIT and the 2- and 4-channel MIX miniMOORE products now meet UL 508 criteria. The signal conditioners have received UL approval under NMTR.E159337 for power-circuit and motor-mounted apparatus. The signal conditioners deliver up to four low-cost I/O channels in a 1-inch footprint, which equates to 0.25-inch per channel. Providing 1,000Vrms input-to-output and channel-to-channel signal isolation, the complete line can be used to isolate, convert, boost and split analog signals.
Forston Labs’ Carbon Dioxide Gas Sensor measures gaseous carbon dioxide in two ranges: 0 to 10,000 ppm and 0 to 100,000 ppm. The sensor connects directly to the LabNavigator instrument for continuous monitoring, time-based experiments or routine monitoring throughout a facility. Export data using NavPilot software provided to view data on a PC in NavPilot or in Microsoft Excel. Changes in CO2 levels occurring in the surrounding ambient air, respiration of organisms or reactions in a chamber can be monitored.
Allegro Industries offers a complete line of Sampling Pumps that meet OSHA and AHERA standards and delivers dependable area monitoring of mold, lead, asbestos and other dangerous particulates. The new Diaphragm Sampling Pump is cost-effective, maintenance-free and will operate with mold, PCM and TEM cassettes. The T100 Rotary Vane and the A100 Rotary Vane offer a sampling range of 3-20 LPM. The D-2 Moldlite Sampler is a high efficiency-linear oscillating pump with a sampling range of 3-33 LPM.
General Monitors’ Gassonic Observer is now FM- and CSA-certified, which means the detector has been evaluated through independent scientific testing and found to be safe and reliable. The detector features a microphone and a detection radius of up to 20 meters at a leak rate of 0.1 kg/s. In addition, the detector offers the Senssonic integrated acoustic self-test, which periodically verifies the integrity of the electronic circuitry and the operation of the acoustic sensor.
Munson Machinery Company Inc.
A new self-cleaning Rotary Drum Screen model 24 RDS 24 from Munson Machinery removes solid materials from waste streams at high rates. The unit contains a rotating cylinder that is 24 inches in diameter by 24 inches long and is constructed of wedgewire screen. Effluent discharges from a head box, overflows a dam and flows onto the outside of the rotating cylinder, allowing water to pass through the wedgewire into the cylinder.
The Longwatch Video System Version 5.1 is available in three platforms that eliminate the custom programming needed with traditional video systems and create a “fast track” for integration with a process control, HMI/SCADA or automation control system. The platforms include Console Recorder, Video Historian and Surveillance. Each platform is supplied on a CD-ROM, which allows fast installation and integration with cameras of all types, industrial networks, and HMI/SCADA systems, DCSes, process historians and control systems of all types.
Watson-Marlow Bredel’s rugged 520RE peristaltic pump is designed for chemical injection applications. The combination of the tube elements and pumphead design allows the unit to be used in applications requiring accurate metering, dosing and transferring. The pumps, with patented LoadSure elements, offer flows from 5 GPH at 30 psi to 7 GPH at 100 psi. They contain fluids within the tube at all times, never allowing the fluid to come into contact with the pump mechanism.
FilterWare for baghouses and other types of fabric filter dust collection systems enables improved process control, maintenance planning and automated EPA compliance reporting while providing plants with other return on investment capabilities, according to FilterSense. The software provides process visualization, report generation and remote services. The software interfaces with the company’s range of diagnostic baghouse controllers, intelligent pulse jet timers, particulate monitors and filter leak/broken bag detectors as well as third-party instrumentation and controls.
Air Cycle Corp.
Air Cycle’s Smash-It pneumatic compactor is powered by compressed air and compacts waste into 55-gallon drums or cubic yard boxes. It produces up to 6,000 lbs. of crushing force, allowing facilities to compact waste to up to 20 percent of its original size. To operate, users place a 55-gallon drum or cubic yard box full of waste on the compactor’s platform. The operator stands next to the machine and places both hands on the OSHA-approved start buttons.
i-LAB handheld analyzing spectrometers from Cole-Parmer weigh 7.4 ounces each and enable users to go directly to the sample source. The battery operated instrument can test water quality, monitor agriculture, measure dyes and colorants, perform quality assurance and control, collect rapid data, conduct environmental research and complete chemical analysis. It conducts absorbance and transmission measurements. A full visible spectrum of a liquid sample is captured and stored within the device for later uploading onto a computer.
ADS’ Hykron Leak Listening System provides high acoustic sensitivity for checking leak noises. As leak noise travels through water and a pipe wall, it can be detected by listening at valves, hydrants, or any available fitting on the pipe. The device detects leak noise through its highly sensitive, built-in electronic sensor. It comes packaged in a carry case with handheld electronic sensor, amplifier with belt attachment, extension rods, magnet attachment and high quality headphones.
The MIDAC open path FTIR Air Monitoring System detects, identifies and measures a wide range of key contaminants simultaneously. Analysis is onsite through a continuous sampling path of up to 1,000 meters. Each system includes an interferometer equipped with a choice of beamsplitters and detectors. The analyzer is coupled to a control PC via standard ribbon cable or long-range fiber optic link. For extended sample paths, the system can be mounted to a rugged, 10-inch Newtonian telescope with tripod.
Gardner Denver Nash
GD Nash’s 2BE4 series vacuum pumps and compressors are a redesign and upgrade to the 2BE3 series. New additions include optimized inlet and discharge porting for enhanced performance, cylindrical roller bearings (upgrade is possible in existing pumps and compressors), optional lobe purge piping and drop-in replacement for existing installations. Inlet bypass piping is not required in most installations, and the series is available in cast iron and stainless steel construction.
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc.
Thermo Fisher Scientific’s FT-IR sampling solutions provide a cost-effective approach to characterizing the chemical composition of biological systems, such as lipids, in algae. The easy-to-use solutions combine instrumentation, accessories and software to increase the number of biological samples that can be analyzed with automated spectroscopy. Industry professionals can choose from among four different configurations capitalizing on ATR spectroscopy, transmission spectroscopy, reflectance spectroscopy and infrared microscopy to suit varying analytical requirements and sample preparation methods.
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc.
The Thermo Scientific Orion Star LogR Meters uses the resistance across the bulb to provide a new method for electrode analysis and determine sample temperature. The resistance information can be used to detect errors in the electrode. The meters allow for temperature-compensated pH readings without the use of a separate temperature input. The meter is available in a version with pH input and another with pH and ion-selective electrode inputs.
