Watson-Marlow Pumps Group
Watson-Marlow’s 520 neat dye peristaltic pump for the pulp and paper industry has a combination of tube elements and a pumphead design that allows concentrated, neat dyes to be transferred directly to paper machines. The dye color can be changed by switching the tube element. The pumps feature patented LoadSure elements that offer easy maintenance and correct loading with no snaking, twisting or pinching. The 520 pump offers flow rates of 55 GPH at 30 psi to 7 GPH at 100 psi.
The new Tideflex CheckMate Inline Check Valve is ideal for backflow prevention and mitigation of odors. In outfalls, stormwater, CSO and SSO applications, the valve’s custom-engineered design eliminates costly backflow from oceans, rivers and interceptors. The valves have very low headloss, which is beneficial in low lying areas. The 100 percent fabric and elastomer construction eliminates corrosion problems. Because the valve is made with a unibody construction, there are no components to catch debris, corrode or fail.
Asahi/America’s updated 12-page Thermoplastic Valve and Piping Systems Catalog presents an overview of the company's fluid handling product lines as well as capabilities for distributors, engineers and installers. The full-color catalog highlights the advantages of using thermoplastic materials, including their corrosion-resistant properties. The catalog features specifications for valves, pneumatic and electric actuators, high purity products, industrial piping and double containment piping. In addition, the catalog outlines the company's high purity and wet process solutions.
CHLOR*RID International Inc.
CHLOR*RID International’s Chlor*Ion Meter is a patent-pending hand-held digital testing device that electronically measures chloride with an internal ion-specific electrode. The meter tests for chloride contamination and corrosion on surfaces in workboats, highways, bridges, railroads, aircraft, ships, dams and tanks. The meter digitally measures chloride in surfaces, removing operator error caused when either the testing tube is not read correctly or results are recorded incorrectly. In addition, it eliminates the need for a glass titrator tube.
Control Company’s Traceable Vane Anemometer Pens
consist of three units that can provide for airflow/temperature, airflow/temperature/humidity/dew point and airflow/temperature/ humidity /dew point/barometric pressure. The units offer high contrast 3/8-inch LCD digits, simple operation and a tough ABS plastic housing with o-ring seal and membrane keypad to keep out dust and dirt. The unit recalls minimum/maximum readings at the press of a button.
New Pig Corp.
New Pig’s RHINO Absorbent Mat stands up to heavy foot traffic while soaking up liquid and minimizing slips. The mat features a thermally bonded, spunbond polypropylene top layer with zig-zag stitching to enhance strength and resist wear and tear. Eight layers of highly absorbent fine-fiber polypropylene form the mat’s base. The dimple pattern speeds wicking of liquids. The mat is available with or without poly backing to prevent absorbed liquids from reaching floors.
FilterSense's Baghouse controller features DeviceNet communications for integration with Allen-Bradley PLCs. This networking solution reduces the cost and time required to wire and install industrial automation devices. The company’s B-PAC series of Baghouse Performance Analyzers and Controllers can detect and locate failed solenoids and filter leaks. The controllers lower energy use by employing intelligent pulse cleaning. These communications allow plant operators to receive information and control options provided thru a single cable.
Bahama has designed the weather-resistant Largo umbrella to withstand 80 mile-per-hour winds and collect and conserve water for reuse. The collected water is seeped away to a tank that may supply irrigation to plants or landscaping. All rainwater collected through the fabric funnel drains through the center column. The product is available as a storm drain or seep-away edition, allowing the owner to decide between underground or aboveground drainage.
Spartan Scientific offers the CRDV/S condensation removal drain valve. Installed in conjunction with any compressor, air dryer or drop leg, the valve is a set-and-forget device that expels condensate from the air system upon the presence of moisture. The device uses a temperature fluxuation circuit to trigger a large orifice solenoid. The design features media compatible materials, indicator lights to show purge cycles, and incorporates an alarm function in case of malfunction.
Supercritical Fluid Technologies Inc.
Supercritical Fluid Technologies’ SFT-100 supercritical fluid extraction is designed for research and process development. Process parameters developed in the laboratory are essential in the scale-up to pilot- or production-scale equipment. Precise control of temperature and pressure ensure reproducible extractions. The unit uses dual sapphire syringe pump technology and integrated pre-heaters to ensure tight control over these key parameters. Supercritical fluid extraction has become a popular alternative to traditional extraction using organic solvents.
Dur-A-Flex’s Hybri-Flex Series systems offer the benefits of two resinous floor systems in one. Its base coat features a built-in moisture mitigation system that tolerates up to 12 lbs. of moisture vapor transmission, making it ideal for installation on recently poured concrete. The added topcoats of each system can provide additional features such as a decorative appearance, UV and stain resistance and quick curing. A complete floor system can be installed in as little as two days.
Routeware’s VehiclePort is a new fleet maintenance module for Routeware’s HomePort line of analytical tools for waste haulers. Using the real-time data dashboard and easy-to-read graphs, waste haulers can quickly identify and resolve problems with their fleet. The technology reads data collected directly from the vehicle’s built-in controller-area network bus and sends it back to the office via the company's on-board computing system. This tool provides a real-time view of vehicle health, fuel economy and tailpipe emissions.
McNeilus Companies Inc.
McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing’s ZR Series full-eject automated side loader is available in four body sizes: 24, 26, 28 or 31 cubic yards. The product's arm has a true zero-radius motion, eliminating kick-out. Advantages of the automated side loader arm include cycle times of about six seconds, ground-to-ground and pack cycle time of 10 seconds. The arm operates continuously at idle speed and does not require the engine to power up to high rpm.
The TankScan remote level-monitoring system from ATEK gathers tank-level data via micropower impulse radar (MIR), a low-power radar system utilizing very short electromagnetic pulses across a wide band of frequencies. Battery power ensures the measurement device is safe for use with petroleum products and chemicals, including combustible liquids. Mounted on top of above- or below-ground tanks, the product's sensors generate low-energy electromagnetic impulses that travel down a thin probe immersed in the fluid. The radar monitor can be used in tanks up to 40 feet high.
Strobic Air Corp.
The patent-pending Strobic Air Smart Fan maintains safe ventilation levels while minimizing facility energy costs and carbon footprint. The fan, which uses a combination of sensors and controls to determine the flow required for safe operation, continually adjusts fan speed to produce optimal flow. In multi-fan applications, fans will automatically turn on or off as required. Additionally, the product can sense a fan failure and turn on a “stand by” fan to maintain safe exhaust operations.
