Bord Na Mona
The MÓNASHELL Biofiltration System uses harmless bacteria that reside on the shell media to treat sulfur compounds without chemical or nutrient addition. The media contains high levels of CaCO3 and neutralizes acid byproducts of sulfide oxidation. The waste airstream is directed into recirculating water, ensuring contact between selected microorganisms and odorous compounds, such as those found in wastewater pumping stations, wastewater treatment works, sludge-handling, municipal solid waste and composting centers
Badger Meter, Inc., has earned NSF-61 certification for its 3-inch to 10-inch Fire Series Meters; 4-inch to 12-inch Fire Series Assemblies with disc series, and turbo series bypass meters; and the 8-inch Combo Meter Assembly. These meters are used in a secondary line dedicated to fire protection or as part of a primary, multi-use system providing fire service protection and potable water for domestic and/or industrial process applications. Features include mainline turbine meter, tamper-resistant calibration ring, and fusion-bonded, epoxy-coated fire service strainer/flow conditioner.
Model S4000CH Combustible Gas Detector owners can calibrate this device with the new Automatic Remote Gas Calibrator from General Monitors. The unit, which allows calibration gas to be applied to the catalytic bead sensor from easily accessible locations, consists of a remote gas calibrator and a solenoid valve. The device blocks ambient air and redirects the calibration gas to the catalytic bead sensor for calibration or testing sensor accuracy. It can calibrate gases at wind velocities as high as 50 mph and maximum temperatures of 75°C.
The Grabner Miniflash is US D.O.T.-approved for the transportation classification of solids and liquids. The technology (ASTM D6450 & D7094) replaces older, methods like Pensky Martens (D93) and TAG (D56). It uses no open flames, and the 1.0 mL sample size is ideal for small test batches, which practically eliminates hazardous fumes and dramatically reduces laboratory wastes. Temperature ranges from: -25° to 400°C (-13° to 750°F). The unit is lightweight and portable and can be powered from a vehicle battery for both on-site and laboratory applications.
IonRight Water Purification System, applicable for use in such industries that require consistent, high-purity water from potable feed water, is a “plug and play” replacement for separate bed and/or mixed bed service deionization. Its dual-filtration process delivers higher quality water with lower operating costs than traditional portable deionization. The system incorporates carbon, reverse osmosis, and continuous electro-deionization technologies in a compact, skid-mounted design. The membranes and deionization systems are cleaned off-site at the company's local service branches.
The Voyager portable gas chromatograph now can measure diacetyl, an artificial flavoring used in popcorn, chips, and candies to provide a buttery taste. The flavoring has been linked to the development of bronchiolitis obliterans, an irreversible lung disease. The Voyager portable gas chromatograph provides accurate, low-level measurements with results provided on-site for immediate review. The unit also has datalogging capability.
Colder Products Company
The metal-free DrumQuik® PUR chemical dispensing system provides safe, easy, and economic extraction of high-purity chemicals from drums, jerry cans, and other bulk transfer containers while minimizing chemical exposure and contamination. The closed-system design combines into one integrated unit a recyclable bung closure and dip-tube with a reusable quick disconnect coupler, ensuring that both sides are sealed from point-of-origin to point-of-use. The system is comprised of a PVDF coupler with built in vent port, and an HDPE drum insert assembly.
The California Air Resources Board has verified the Rypos DPF/Low Emission Transport Refrigeration Unit (Level 2 Plus) diesel particulate filter for use on most trailer transport refrigeration units (TRUs) using 2002 and older model year engines. The self-cleaning diesel exhaust filter uses an electrically conductive sintered metal fiber medium and electrical power from the TRU to regenerate the filter when needed. It is microprocessor controlled with a backpressure control system, an electrical control circuit, and a backpressure warning indicator.

The Eagle Loc 900, featuring BullDog™ technology from S&B Technical Products, reduces or eliminates the need for external joint restraints on polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipe fittings. The restraint is fitted into the bell portion of JM Eagle PVC pipe when it’s manufactured, providing long-term flow capacity in open-trench construction of pressure pipelines, accommodating greater thrust force than other systems. Applicable for use in both potable water distribution and sewer mains, this product is available in diameters ranging from 4-inch to 12-inch PVC pipe.
Red Valve Co.
The Series DX Slurry Knife Gate Valve is designed for heavy slurry applications in the power and mining industries. When the valve opens, the reinforced elastomer sleeves seal against each other and provide a 100 percent full port opening, minimizing turbulence and wear. The seats isolate and protect all metal parts from the process. Each time the strokes, the valve discharges a small amount of slurry, keeping the gate path and seat area clear of entrapped particulates.
