Green landscape manufacturer EcoBorder announced the EcoBorder Curb, which combines the strength of stone with the flexibility of rubber. Made in the USA from recycled tires, the EcoBorder Curb retains the desired look of custom stone and concrete borders, but eliminates the drawbacks. Unlike concrete and stone, EcoBorder Curb is not as prone to crack or break due to the core component in recycled tires, which accommodates the contraction and expansion in extreme weather fluctuations. EcoBorder Curb’s innovative design features flexibility, DIY user friendly installation, and easy reconfiguration to accommodate growing plants and landscape changes.
The Witte Company
Process equipment manufacturer The Witte Co. has unveiled remote monitoring and control on its line of vibrating fluid bed dryers, coolers, dewaterers, pellet classifiers, conveyors, and other equipment. Controlled remotely with a dedicated PLC HMI, the remote desktop capability allows process engineers to start and stop batch and continuous operations, adjust their parameters, and check process conditions such as air temperature, airstream velocity, and retention time in real time while away from the processing line. This is ideal for water/wastewater, food, beverage, chemical, pharmaceutical, plastics, and other processors with multiple facilities worldwide and/or those operating in controlled environments.
GEA 2H BIOdek® Vertical Flow Fill
The foils for the BIOdek® fills are extruded directly from the molten mass, free from stress and with uniform finish. The unique welding process developed to assemble the PP foils into blocks provides an environmentally friendly solution, eliminating the need for harmful solvents. The foils are manufactured in a range of flute sizes such that once the blocks are assembled, different specific surface areas are available to provide efficient treatment for BOD and ammonia reduction while preventing any fouling from the suspended solids in the influent. GEA Heat Exchanges (Bochum, Germany), is exhibiting its 2H products for the municipal and industrial markets at the WEFTEC® 2013 conference, Oct. 7-9 at Chicago's McCormick Place.

Electro-Chemical Devices, Inc.
Seawater Dechlorination Analyzer
The Model DCA-23 Seawater Dechlorination Analyzer from Electro-Chemical Devices (ECD) is a low maintenance measurement solution that requires no chemicals to monitor seawater chlorine levels accurately in a wide range of industrial process and municipal water treatment applications.
Seawater has multiple process industry uses, including heat exchange systems at LNG terminals, oil/gas refineries, electric power plants and SWAC systems (salt water air conditioning) in commercial buildings. The DCA-23 is a single-purpose analyzer that monitors chlorine in seawater from 0.0 to 2.00 ppm. It features an economical, low-maintenance design that requires no chemicals.
The analyzer measures the pH, temperature, and Total Residual Oxidant (TRO) of seawater and converts them into an equivalent ppm chlorine value, which is displayed to conform with existing conventions. It features a minimum detection limit (MDL) of 0.014 ppm and a limit of quantification (LOQ) of 0.044 ppm, making the DCA-23 Analyzer suitable for monitoring in environments with the most stringent dechlorination regulations.
The DCA-23 features three sensors, pH, TRO and temperature. The pH sensor measures from 0-14 pH, the TRO sensor measures from ±1500 mV and the temperature sensor measures from 0-100°C. The DCA-23 with its tri-parameter monitoring, is the ideal seawater chlorine analyzer for a wide range of applications.
Supercritical Fluid Technologies Inc.
SFT-10 High Pressure Carbon Dioxide Pump
Supercritical Fluid Technologies, Inc. introduces the completely self-contained SFT-10 Liquid Carbon Dioxide Pump, and advanced Peltier (thermoelectric) technology that can achieve high pressure without the need for an external cooling bath.
The pump can deliver carbon dioxide at pressures up to 10,000 psi (69 MPa) at flow rates from 0.01 to 24.0 ml/min. These characteristics make the SFT-10 an ideal pump for use in supercritical fluid extraction, and a variety of other high pressure applications, including supercritical fluid reaction chemistry and chromatography.
The SFT-10 utilizes reliable, dual sapphire syringe pump technology to achieve high pressures rapidly. The Peltier chiller has superior cooling capability. It maintains the temperature at the pump heads low enough to ensure the carbon dioxide remains liquid.
The standard operating mode is “constant pressure” where the pump will maintain a pressure set point. An optional constant flow mode, from 0.01 to 24.0 ml/min., is available.
The SFT-10 may be acquired as a stand alone CO2 pump or used as part of Supercritical Fluid Technologies’ SFT-110 / SFT-110XW Supercritical Fluid Extractors.
Until now those wanting outdoor air quality information have been limited to using diffusion tubes which are variable in accuracy and unable to give real-time data or optical reference analysers, which lack portability and are hugely expensive. The S500 ENV meets the need for accurate real-time air quality information in a portable lightweight package that is easily affordable for short term studies, hot-spot monitoring, and taking intermittent measurements.
The S500 ENV comes equipped with a lithium battery capable of 8 hours continuous operation before charging is required, and can log over 8,100 measurements – more than enough for a full day in the field. Customers can choose from a range of interchangeable sensor heads including nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, ozone, hydrogen sulphide, sulphur dioxide, ammonia, and VOCs. A simple to use software package lets them download and manipulate data on their PC. And by adding the water and dust proof enclosure, the S500 ENV can be left in situ for a number of days, allowing for trend data to be captured.
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).
Real Tech’s online spectroscopy analyzer series provides real-time process monitoring and scanning across the whole spectrum of UV and/or visible light, allowing for the rapid detection of many common and emerging contaminants in water. The user can configure the spectrum analyzer for the facility’s specific water needs. It features multi-component measurement capabilities that extract and isolate concentration information about one or more chemical components of known and unknown mixtures.
