New Pig Corp.
New Pig’s Universal Mats with Chuck Boxes include heavyweight Universal PIG Mat pads, a mat dispenser, disposal bags and storage container. Constructed from 100 percent polypropylene, the mat absorbs and retains oils, coolants and water and will not leave trapped liquids or fiber residue behind. The dispenser box provides storage of and access to Mat while protecting its contents from dirt and moisture. The Chuck Box is used to store used absorbents until they can be disposed of properly.
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.
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.
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.
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.
