Atlas Copco’s new line of ZS screw blowers average 30 percent more energy-efficient operation than conventional lobe blower technology. Industries that will benefit are municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants, where air blowers typically represent up to 70 percent of the total electricity costs. The efficiency of this blower is attributed to the screw technology. Other features that generate increased efficiency and reliability are the integrated gearbox, the oil system and the design that integrates all individual components into a plug-and-run solution.

The meter can be customized for content measurement and concentration, quality statements, purity indication, product identification, as a changing variable indicating the metabolism in relation to kinetic statements or as a basic variable for physical calculations or simulations and for clarification of how much material is contained in a given volume.
JM Science Inc.
The Aquacounter HG-400 Low Cost Mercury Analyzer from JM Science provides greater accuracy and sensitivity through an improved optical flow path optimization and is designed to measure trace levels of mercury. The HG-400 is equipped with a large 7.5-inch color touch screen, comes with a built-in printer, and an expandability to communicate with a flexible sample changer. Four different sizes of sample solutions; 5, 20, 100, and 250 mL can be accommodated by adding a few optional components to the instrument.
The A141 high output disaster siren and alarm from E2S has an output at 1 m in excess of 140dB, louder than a jet engine on full power at takeoff. With a power increase from 100W to 400W, the output of the A141 is substantially higher than the A140 it replaces, giving it an effective warning range of between 500 and 750 m depending on atmospheric conditions. The unit has a choice of 32 user-selectable warning tones and is powered from either 24VDC or 115/230VAC.
Griswold Pump Co.
Griswold Pump Company’s 4-, 6- and 8-inch Submersible Turbine Pumps have been designed for a wide variety of uses, including farm, industry, municipal and commercial applications. The 6-inch pumps have flow rates up to 550 gpm, while the 8-inch pumps feature flow rates to 1,000 gpm. Other key components include discharge, intermediate bowls and motor brackets, an impeller, custom sizes and fabricated assemblies.
Fluid Components International
The ST51 Mass Flow Meter from Fluid Components International comes with stringent safety approvals that include FM, CSA/CRN, Class 1, Div 1, Groups B, C, D and Class 1, Div II, Groups A-D. The meter is ideal for measuring methane and other combustible greenhouse gases. It is an easy-to-install explosion-proof instrument and requires virtually no maintenance. It also features a no-moving parts design and operates over a wide flow range with low-flow sensitivity.
Cultec has added internal manifold capability to its Recharger 150 and Contactor 100 subsurface stormwater chambers, eliminating the need for fabricated pipe manifolds. The internal manifold is created by inserting an HVLV SFCx2 Feed Connector into the portal located on the sidewall of the stormwater chamber. A polyethylene liner beneath the feed connector locations prevents scouring. The inclusion of two side portals on every chamber allows manifolding to take place at any point within the stormwater management system.
Extech Instruments’ EX845 is a 1000A AC/DC CAT IV clamp meter featuring METERLiNK technology and a built-in infrared thermometer. The technology wirelessly connects FLIR infrared cameras to meters via Bluetooth to accelerate and simplify inspections. The EX845’s advanced True RMS meter functions include AC/DC current, voltage, resistance, capacitance, frequency, infrared and contact temperature, diode-test and continuity check. The meter’s peak hold function captures inrush currents and transients. The bright 4-digit, 4,000 count backlit display has several one-button functions including data hold, min/max, and selectable auto- or manual-ranging.
Control Company’s Traceable Dissolved Oxygen Pen has a tough ABS plastic housing and water-resistant design with o-ring seal and membrane keypad to ensure a long life in severe lab or harsh plant environments. The hold button freezes the reading on the display. The high contrast, easy to read 3/8-inch-high LCD digits simultaneously display oxygen concentration and temperature. The unit recalls minimum/maximum readings at the press of a button.
EXAIR’s PVDF Super Air Knife provides a laminar curtain of air that can be used to blow off, clean and dry materials in highly corrosive environments not suitable for stainless steel. It is ideal for use in the manufacturing of solar cells, lithium ion batteries, semiconductors, medical devices and processes that include electroplating, transfer of acids, caustic chemicals, brine, and solvent recovery.
