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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Carlisle Energy Services Inc.
Carlisle Energy Services’ Spectro PowerCap landfill closure system is a dual-purpose system that provides environmental protection while generating clean, solar electricity. The Spectro PowerCap combines the puncture resistance, seam strength and long-term performance characteristics of the company's TPO Geomembrane and the solar electricity performance of SpectroFlex photovoltaic laminates, powered by Uni-Solar. These two components are integrated in a factory controlled environment and finished with a low-profile electrical interconnect system. It is available as a complete turnkey, installed system or as separate components.
Onset Computer Corp.
Onset’s HOBO Conductivity Logger is a high-accuracy, easy-to-maintain data logger that reduces the cost of measuring conductance and temperature in streams, lakes, and other freshwater sources. The logger is designed with a non-contact sensor, provides open access to the sensor for easy cleaning and software-based drift compensation using calibration points from the start and end of each deployment. Onset’s HOBOware Pro software makes it easy to graph and analyze conductivity data. The logger offloads data to a PC via an optical USB interface.
Krohne’s Optisonic 6300 clamp-on ultrasonic flowmeter features an integrated display, improved measurement accuracy, ATEX Approval, an extended temperature range and the ability to handle smaller line sizes. It is fitted with a protective casing to ensure smooth and efficient operation in demanding and hazardous conditions. Available in three sensor sizes, the flowmeter can cover the entire pipe diameter range from ½- to 160-inches. Two other sensors are available for extreme temperature applications.
Pepperl+Fuchs’ Segment Checker version 1.20 is a tool for validating the design of all Foundation fieldbus and Profibus PA segments, even in hazardous areas. Users drag and drop components into the project window and edit the attributes to build a fieldbus segment. New to version 1.20 are the latest FieldConnex fieldbus products and enhanced calculations for field barriers used in the High Power Trunk method. Additionally, Segment Checker 1.20 allows users to export a project in a graphic format for use in different media.
EXAIR’s Heavy Duty Dry Vac is a rugged, industrial duty vacuum cleaner that has been engineered to vacuum high volumes of dry materials. The wear-resistant design is suitable for the clean-up of abrasive materials like steel shot, garnet, metal chips, and sand, yet can be used for general purpose applications. The vacuum is compressed air powered and attaches to the user supplied 55 gallon open-top drum. It is extremely quiet at 77 dBA. Surrounding air is kept clean by the 0.1 micron filter bag.
Thern power winch systems provide wastewater facilities with economical and versatile solutions for a broad spectrum of industry applications. These winches control the new floating pontoon-based dredges, a custom designed solution that is more cost effective and easily maintained than the previous system. Installed at accessible stations next to each basin, the winches eliminate the need for steel tracks and underwater maintenance. Programmable computerized variable speed controls enable fully automated, simultaneous operation of each winch.
Casella USA’s CEL-320 noise dosimeter covers three measurement ranges from 30 to 140 dB to ANSI type 2 specifications. Overall results for the maximum, minimum and average noise levels are saved together with the ability to set two threshold cutoff levels and a single criterion level for all noise dose calculations. The dosimeters are available in single kits that include an acoustic calibrator, a small foam windscreen, Windows software and a cable. Multiple kits are also available in 5 or 10 packs.
