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.
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.
Fluid Metering Inc.
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.
EXAIR’s Type 316 Stainless Steel Super Air Knife is designed for blocking harmful vapors and fumes on plating operations, blowing corrosive chemicals off parts, drying pharmaceutical products, and cooling hot materials such as molten glass, castings and molded parts. The uniform sheet of high-velocity air pulls in surrounding room air and amplifies it at a ratio of 40:1. The product can withstand temperatures up to 800 degrees Fahrenheit and contains no moving parts.
Pressure Pipe Inspection Company
PPIC’s PipeDiver™ is a pipeline condition assessment tool that provides information about the condition of pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipelines. The free-swimming tool collects data about the integrity of the pipeline. Dewatering is not required, so pipelines can remain in service during inspection. The system uses remote field transformer coupling technology, and detects pre-stressed wire breaks that could lead to pipe ruptures.
The Nomad portable data-logging weather station by Casella USA monitors wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, temperature, humidity, dew point and rainfall. A built-in solar panel supplies power and allows the device to run continuously in remote environments. The system’s data-logger has 512 K of internal memory and on-board data display. Users can communicate with the station via laptop, telephone or radio modem. The aluminum-based Nomad system weighs less than 30 lbs. and is supplied in three customized carrying bags.
United Electric Controls
One Series explosion-proof electronic pressure and temperature switches by United Electric Controls are designed for plant safety alarm and shutdown applications that require a switch. The switches provide programmable adjustments, 0.1-percent repeatability, and do not require calibration. The units can be integrated into a safety instrumented system and are suitable for SIL1 applications. The series offers on-board diagnostics for each unit.
Farr Air Pollution Control
Farr’s Gold Series GS4M Mini dust collector controls emissions from small airflow applications up to 2,000 cfm. The collector is a pre-wired unit with a low-noise fan (less than 70 dB), controls, motor starter, filters and cleaning system. It contains four HemiPleat® flame-retardant filter cartridges with 788 square feet of media. The automatic, reverse-pulse cleaning system is activated by an on-demand control panel. A safety monitoring filter is included to allow recirculation of the filtered air downstream for energy savings.
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.
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.
Master Bond Inc.
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.
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.
