Fluid Components International
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.
InterOcean Systems Inc.
Slick Sleuth Oil Spill Detection & Alarm Systems are used for immediate detection, early warning alert, containment and prevention of accidental spills. The optical sensor detects small amounts of oil and can be configured to automatically shut off pumps or valves, activate alarms and provide remote alert notification. The non-contact design is ideal for remote deployment in rugged settings such as coastal areas, harbors, inland waterways, industrial spillways, boiler and engine-generator rooms, sumps and separators.
Russelectric RTS Series Bypass/Isolation Switches are UL labeled and listed for 30-cycle closing and withstand ratings based on testing per UL Standard 1008. Available in continuous current ratings from 100 to 3,000 amps, these switches simplify the selective coordination of overcurrent devices in backup power systems for healthcare and other mission-critical facilities. The 30-cycle rating allows downstream overcurrent protective devices to clear a fault before upstream devices.
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc.
Thermo Fisher Scientific Orion AQUAfast AQIII series meters for colorimetry and turbidity measurements offers simple operation with multiple test options. The meter is designed for use with the EPA-approved Orion AQUAfast AC4P71 Free Chlorine and AC4P72 Total Chlorine Methods for drinking water and wastewater reporting. The meter will read up to 4.0 mg/L for chlorine with a single reagent pack. Chlorine dioxide, cyanuric acid, and pH calibration curves are also programmed into this meter.
Danfoss Drives’ VLT Low Harmonic Drive performs real time analysis and actively imposes currents, as needed, to restore and ensure the highest possible quality sine waves from the power supply grid. These drives are available in the power range 132 - 630 kW high overload, 160 - 710 kW normal overload and voltage range of 380 - 480 VAC, 50 - 60 Hz.
