Thrush Co. Inc.
Air and Dirt Separator
Thrush’s Aar-O-Vent air and dirt separator is designed for corrosion protection in hydronic piping systems. The device uses a stainless-steel coalescing filter medium to separate air and dirt from water in systems that can cause damage to pumps, seals and valves. Features include a gauge tap on the inlet and outlet connections, a removable bottom cover for cleaning the coalescing medium, and a blow down valve for flushing collected sediment. Available sizes for the separator range from 1.5- to 24-inches.
Pump Station Controller
The FlowStation 110 from Control Microsystems is an out-of-the-box pump station controller package designed for use in storm and wastewater lift stations and common pump-up applications. The components consist of a pump controller, a color touch screen local operator interface, GPRS modem, SMS and e-mail alarming. An integrated BlackBerry interface is designed for central viewing and alarm acknowledgement. For larger water control systems, the package provides interface tools that exploit the product’s integrated Web server and Ethernet capabilities.
Red Valve Co.
Slurry Knife Gate Valve
Red Valve’s Series DX slurry knife gate valve is designed for heavy slurry applications. When the valve opens, reinforced elastomer sleeves seal against each other and provide a complete full-port opening, which minimizes turbulence and wear. When the valve is closed, the sleeves provide a drop tight seal. Each time the valve strokes, it is designed to discharge a small amount of slurry, keeping the gate path and seat area clear of entrapped particulates.
Fluid Metering Inc.
Dispensing and Metering
Fluid Metering’s Smooth-flo PDS100 System is a valve-less dispensing and metering system that uses dual pumps to eliminate pulsation. Pump heads are mounted to the control unit, which includes stepper motors, drivers and programmable electronics housed in an anodized aluminum enclosure. The product is menu-driven and uses front-panel membrane switches and a large LCD display for programming. The system features pulse-free fluid delivery down to 15 uL per minute continuous flow.
Elastec drum skimmers are designed to handle multiple types of petroleum spills, from jet fuel to crude oil. The skimmers recover oil by rotating a drum through the oil-water interface. Oil sticks to the drum surface and is recovered inside the floating head. These drum skimmers respond to vegetable oil and bio-fuel spills as well, and are effective in recovering pollutants in marine environments and industrial pits.
Red Valve Co.
line of rubber products from Red Valve supplies expansion joints, reducers, fittings, elbows, ductwork connections and vibration pipes. The products are made to conform to all FSA guidelines. Parts can be custom-built to compensate for offset flanges, special face-to-face dimensions or unique configurations. Sizes range from 1- to 108-inches.
Cavity Metering Pumps
The MDP series of progressive cavity metering pumps from Seepex features a rotating unit made from Xytel ST801. The unit is injection-molded as a single piece. The pumps provide pulse-free metering of low- to medium-viscosity fluids with repeatable accuracy up to ±1 percent. The pumps are available in four sizes with capacities from 0.1 to 580 l/h and pressures to 12 bar. They can be equipped with an electric motor containing an integrated frequency inverter and forced ventilation.
The Model 4683-TTM-3F RS-485 network repeater from Acromag is designed for use with Johnson Controls N2 or BACnet MS/TP bus control systems. The device drives up to 32 RS-485 devices and isolates and boosts signals up to 4,000 feet. Electrical surge protection with 1,500-volt AC isolation shields the host computer from destructive noise spikes and other transient signals. The product has multiple LEDs and field-selectable EOLN terminations. The device is available in 24-, 115- and 230-volt AC power models.
EXAIR’s Adjustable E-Vac® series of compressed air-powered vacuum generators adjust vacuum and flow rates to suit application requirements. The vacuum pumps are designed for a variety of box opening, clamping, lifting, chucking and surface mounting applications. With a turn of the unit, vacuum and flow levels can be changed to overcome porosity and increase or decrease the lifting power. The straight-through, single-stage aluminum construction requires no vacuum filter and passes contaminants from dirty environments through the unit.
Master Bond Inc.
UV-curable Epoxy System
Master Bond’s UV22 nanosilica-filled UV-curable epoxy features a nano-sized filler that provides cured system abrasion resistance, optical clarity and low shrinkage. The tensile strength of the cured epoxy is greater than 4,600 psi and its tensile modulus is greater than 500,000 psi. The product cures upon exposure to UV light at room temperatures. The single-component system requires no mixing, and has a low coefficient of thermal expansion. The UV22 is solvent-free, not oxygen inhibited and is available for use with syringe applicators.
Modular SFC’s Centrifan Recirculating Evaporator works without a vacuum pump. The standalone device uses gas flow created by a spinning rotor and heater to accelerate the evaporation of aqueous and organic solvents. The blow drying continuously sheers off the top layer of liquid, while the centrifugal force holds non-volatile compounds in place. The unit is designed to save energy and laboratory space, and eliminate oil cleanups, heat, noise and vacuum tubing.
Risk Analysis Software
The BREEZE Risk Analyst is human health and ecological risk assessment software. The product can be used to conduct GIS-based analyses of multi-pathway human health risk assessments, or food-web based ecological risk assessment modeling. The application provides framework for conducting risk assessment modeling for both regulatory and non-regulatory applications, including air monitoring health impact analysis, air toxics risk assessment and ecological risk assessment. The software is available as a standalone application with GIS capabilities or as an Environmental Systems Research Institute ArcView™ Extension.
Parker domnick hunter
Dry Air System
Parker domnick hunter’s PNEUDRI MiDAS is a mini dry air system that provides plant engineers uninterrupted clean and dry compressed air. The unit contains a particulate filter and a desiccant cartridge inside a single module. The product features top-end re-pressurization and a quick-release top cap arrangement that does not require inlet/outlet ports to be disconnected. The unit is available at a pressure dew point of -40
or -100 degrees Fahrenheit, and at flow rates of 3- to 20-scfm at 100 psig.
Elastec drum skimmers are designed to handle multiple types of petroleum spills, from jet fuel to crude oil. The skimmers recover oil by rotating a drum through the oil-water interface. Oil sticks to the drum surface and is recovered inside the floating head. The drum skimmers respond to vegetable oil and bio-fuel spills as well, and are effective in recovering pollutants in marine environments and industrial pits.
Tubular Heat Exchanger
Munters’ Thermo-T tubular heat exchanger recovers energy from processes with temperatures up to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Welded construction prevents cross-contamination, and thermal-expansion joints allow the device’s heat-exchanging tubes to expand in high-temperature applications. The unit features numerous configurations and airflows from 3,000 scfm to 30,000 scfm.
