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. The product consists of PVDF, Hastelloy C-276 alloy screws, and a PTFE shim to adjust the airstream.

The FlexSwitch FLT93S Flow/Level/Temperature Switch from Fluid Components International (FCI) performs monitoring, controlling and alarming of flow rates or levels of critical fluids. The switch is a dual-function, insertion-style instrument that offers either flow/temperature sensing or level/temperature sensing in a single device. The company says a single FLT measures and monitors flow or level and temperature simultaneously with excellent accuracy and reliability. Dual 6A relay outputs are standard and are assignable to flow, level or temperature.
The ITT Goulds Model NM 3196 is an ANSI chemical process pump constructed of fiberglass-reinforced plastic, giving customers an alternative to metal-alloy pumps for processes involving highly corrosive fluids. The Model NM 3196 features i-FRAME power ends, which incorporate multiple patented technologies to reduce downtime and lower life-cycle costs. The central feature is the i-ALERT on-board condition monitor, which automatically monitors temperature and vibration, warning users with a flashing LED display if either are exceeding normal parameters.
The Altair 4 Multigas Detector received EU toxic gas approval on Dec. 19, 2008, as performance compliant for measurement of 0-200 ppm hydrogen sulfide gas and 0-999 ppm carbon monoxide gas. Test conditions used appear in standards EN 45544-1:1999 and EN 45544-2:1999. This unit for lower explosive limit, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, and oxygen is the only portable gas detector with an optional MotionAlert feature, which is useful should a user become disabled due to unforeseen hazards.
Dürr Environmental Inc.
The Heat Storage Shutdown (HSS) mode, developed by the Environmental and Energy Systems division of Dürr Systems, optimizes the energy savings from almost any off-production regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO). The HSS mode enables the RTO fan and burner to be shut down while the unit stores its remaining heat energy in the combustion chamber and retains an elevated temperature from which to return to production ready status.
The Altair 5 Galaxy Automated Test System, MSA’s automated record-keeping and calibration system for MSA portable gas detection instruments, is now available for both Altair 4 and Altair 5 Multigas Detectors. This family of products also includes Solaris, Orion and Sirius Multigas Detectors, the Orion plus
IR Detector and Altair Single-Gas Detectors.
The Fluoride Monitoring System from Electro-Chemical Devices is designed with advanced System C22 Smart Controller and precision S10 and S17 Fluoride pIon Sensors. The controller features a multi-bus design, which enables customization of up to four inputs and six outputs in a 1/2 DIN NEMA 4X enclosure, channel comparisons or measurement compensation, configurable conductivity concentration curves and the graphical display of data and PID control on the outputs or up to eight optional SPDT relays.
EXAIR’s Catalog 23 is a full color, technical guide with solutions to common industrial cooling, drying, conveying, blowoff, cleaning and static electricity problems. The 160 page catalog features products that can help companies conserve compressed air and reduce noise levels. The guide features new E-Vac Vacuum Generators, Super Air Knives, Super Air Nozzles, Super Air Wipes, Vortex Tubes and Cold Gun tool coolers and includes a detailed technical explanation, performance data, application photos and dimensional drawings.
Munters Integrated Custom Air Handler (ICA) dehumidification system integrates a desiccant dehumidifier with other air conditioning components. ICA is customizable to multiple configurations, offers 10 rotor sizes, 7 desiccant options, and a range of standard components engineered for maximized performance. The device incorporates many advanced features including double wall construction with no-through metal design in either 2.5- or 4- inch wall thickness. Surface options of galvalume, textured aluminum, stainless steel or any combination work in all operational environments.
Asahi/America Polytetra electric heaters are completely encapsulated with corrosion resistant PFA and PTFE. The heaters’ life expectancy is increased by covering the entire length of the electrical cord with PFA. The connections from the stainless steel conductor to the electrical cord are housed within a machined PTFE block. These electric heaters are available in standard models from 120-600V and 350-4,000 watts of continuous power. Standard lengths from 3-15 feet can be factory bent in any shape desired.
Photovac Inc.’s DataFID flame ionization detector features a built-in Bluetooth device to transfer data wirelessly to a PDA or computer. A metal hydride hydrogen fuel cylinder supplies up to 70 hours of continuous use. The hydrogen cylinder is UN3468 classified. An optional supplemental air tank provides readings in high concentration environments up to 100,000 ppm and in oxygen deprived locations such as high altitudes. The DataFID exceeds the requirements of EPA Method 21 for fugitive emissions.
