T80 Universal Transmitter
Process and plant engineers in search of a powerful process analyzer for multiple analytical measurements will find that the Model T80 Universal Transmitter from Electro-Chemical Devices, Inc. provides a versatile, easy-to-use, economical solution for virtually all liquid analytical measurements.
Featuring a highly intelligent digital transmitter protocol, the T80 Universal Transmitter simplifies process measurement and reduces maintenance costs for seven common industrial plant parameters. Process measurement has never been easier or more affordable than with the T80’s virtually plug-and-play capabilities, which simplify daily operations and maintenance while reducing instrumentation costs simultaneously.
The ECD Model T80 Universal Transmitter is a single channel transmitter designed for the continuous measurement of multiple parameters in a general-purpose industrial environment: pH, ORP, pION, Dissolved Oxygen, Turbidity, Conductivity or Resistivity. The Model T80 digitally communicates with any ECD Model S80 Intelligent Sensor and automatically conﬁgures the transmitter’s menus and display screens to the measured parameter. The Model T80 automatically configures to any of the listed measurements so that there is no need to inventory multiple instrument types, saving time and reducing plant operating costs.
The T80 Universal Transmitter is flexible and user-friendly. It offers membrane switch navigation, a simple menu structure and soft key menu choices and an easy-to-read 2 ¾ -x- 1 ½ inch LCD display. The T80 accepts any S80 intelligent sensor or any standard pH, ORP or pION sensor with solution ground using the optional T80 input card. It is available with 4-20 mA output with MODBUS RTU on 24 VDC and 110/220 VAC instruments. The T80 can be configured with optional HART 7 communication and an optional three alarm relay.

CV Series Valves
Vindum Engineering, Inc. (VEI) announces the release of its patented high pressure and high precision CV Series Valves, capable of continuous operation at pressures up to 20,000 PSI. Either On-Off or 3-Way/4-Position models are available. This patented VEI valve design can be used in high temperature applications and/or with corrosive fluids, further enhancing its operating envelope.
This high-pressure model is pneumatically operated via a set of small, low voltage pilot valves. The valves are available in a wide range of seal materials as well as corrosion resistant wetted parts (Stainless Steel or Hastelloy C-276), with either 1/8 or 1/4 inch fittings for high pressure tubing.
This new valve maintains a constant internal fluid volume and does not trap any fluid within the valve body when switched. This is one of the unique aspects of VEI’s patented valve design that delivers superior, reliable performance in a wide range of operating environments.
Fluid Components International
The ST100 Series Flow Meter sets a new industry benchmark in process and plant air/gas flow measurement, delivering unsurpassed adaptability and value to meet plant gas flow measurement applications for today and tomorrow.
The ST100 Flow Meter’s graphical, multivariable, backlit LCD display/readout brings new meaning to the term “process information”. It provides the industry’s most comprehensive information with continuous display of all process measurements and alarm status, and the ability to interrogate for service diagnostics.
The user-friendly ST100 stores up to five unique calibration groups to accommodate broad flow ranges, differing mixtures of the same gas and multiple gases, and obtains up to 1000:1 turndown. An optional, patent-pending SpectraCal Gas Equivalency calibration method lets users select and switch between 10 common gases. An on-board data logger with an easily accessible, removable 2-GB micro-SD memory card capable of storing 21 million readings comes standard.
The ST100 offers three different types of flow sensors to best match user applications. The fast-response FPC-style is a fast response features an integral flow conditioner and protective shroud optimized for compressed air and clean gas applications. The fast-response, general purpose FP-style features a protective shroud and is the sensor used with FCI’s VeriCal in-situ calibration option. For wet or dirty gases, or erratic flows, the unshrouded S-style facilitates easy cleaning and provides a smoothed response.
The ST100 can be calibrated to measure virtually any process gas, including wet gas, mixed gases and dirty gases. The basic insertion style air/gas meter features a thermal flow sensing element that measures flow from 0.25 to 1000 SFPS (0.07 NMPS to 305 NMPS) with accuracy of ±0.75 percent of reading, ±0.5 percent of full scale.
Designed for rugged industrial processes and plants, ST100 Flow Meters include service up to 850ºF and are available with both integral and remote (up to 1000 feet) electronics versions. The ST100 is agency approved for hazardous environments, including the entire instrument, the transmitter and the rugged, NEMA 4X/IP67 rated enclosure. Instrument approvals in addition to ATEX and IECEx include FM and FMc.
FPI Mag Flow Meter
Municipal and industrial engineers will find McCrometer’s FPI Mag (Full Profile Insertion) Electromagnetic Flow Meter features the new M-Series Converter, providing excellent accuracy to ±0.5% of reading and has obtained CSA certification to UL 61010-1 and CSA C22.2 No.61010-1-04, expanding the markets and applications for this meter.
Featuring an advanced filtering algorithm, McCrometer’s M-Series Converter supports FPI Mag Flow Meter accuracy of ±0.5% of reading from 1 to 32 ft/s and ±1% from 0.3 to 1 ft/s. The M-Series Converter offers many other new features, including built-in dual 4-20 mA outputs for communication flexibility, additional programmable outputs to support SCADA systems, and a simplified menu structure for ease of use.

The FPI Mag is available for forward-flow only or a bi-directional measurement for line sizes from 4 to 138 inches. The flow sensor comes pre-calibrated from McCrometer’s NIST traceable Calibration Lab and requires no recalibration in the field.
Typical municipal water applications for the FPI Mag include wells, booster stations, effluent, filter balancing and backwash, pumping stations, UV dosing, and potable water distribution. The product also supports applications in a wide range of industrial process plants including chemical, electric power, food/beverage, oil/gas refining, metals/mining, pulp/paper, and more.
GF Piping Systems
GF Piping Systems has introduced the second generation Signet 9900 Transmitter featuring a Batch Controller option, along with all the proven features of the original model. The new Signet 9900 Transmitter (Generation II) supports multiple parameters that include flow, pH/ORP, Conductivity/Resistivity, Salinity, Temperature, Pressure, Level, and 4 to 20 mA Signals, and also Batch Systems.
Customers can convert their second generation 9900 Transmitter to a Batch Controller System by simply plugging in the new Batch Module and Relay Module, thereby maintaining the product’s original intent of consolidating multiple platforms into one while increasing their service level and reducing inventory.
The 9900 features an extra large (3.90” x 3.90”) auto-sensing backlit display that allows visibility at 4-5 times the distance of other transmitters. This highly illuminated display and large characters reduce the risk of misreading or misinterpreting the displayed values. The display shows separate lines for units, main and secondary measurements as well as a dial-type digital bar graph. Output accuracy is ±32 μA maximum error @ 25ºC @ 24 VDC with resolution of 6 μA or better. Other capabilities include relay and warning LEDs, and an intuitive menu for easy programming. Standards and approvals include NEMA 4X/IP65, CE, UL, CUL, RoHS and China RoHS.
The new 9900 Batch Control System is well suited for batch processes, filter backwash initiation, chemical addition, and canning and bottling. Other applications fulfilled by the 9900’s multi-parameter capabilities make it ideal for water and wastewater treatment, reverse osmosis, deionization, chemical dosing and delivery, metal and plastic finishing, fume scrubbers, cooling towers, and all types of filtration.
