Onset Computer Corp.
Onset’s HOBO Conductivity Logger is a high-accuracy, easy-to-maintain data logger that reduces the cost of measuring conductance and temperature in streams, lakes, and other freshwater sources. The logger is designed with a non-contact sensor, provides open access to the sensor for easy cleaning and software-based drift compensation using calibration points from the start and end of each deployment. Onset’s HOBOware Pro software makes it easy to graph and analyze conductivity data. The logger offloads data to a PC via an optical USB interface.
The TankScan remote level-monitoring system from ATEK gathers tank-level data via micropower impulse radar (MIR), a low-power radar system utilizing very short electromagnetic pulses across a wide band of frequencies. Battery power ensures the measurement device is safe for use with petroleum products and chemicals, including combustible liquids. Mounted on top of above- or below-ground tanks, the product's sensors generate low-energy electromagnetic impulses that travel down a thin probe immersed in the fluid. The radar monitor can be used in tanks up to 40 feet high.
Pressure Systems Inc.
Pressure Systems’ KPSI Model 501 SDI-12 (serial data interface at 1200 baud) transducer meets the requirements of the U.S. Geological Survey's Office of Surface Water accuracy specifications for stage monitoring. It offers +0.05 percent FS total error band and repeatability as well as measurement level accuracy of +0.01 ft H2O and on-board surge protection. The transducer’s small rugged package is comprised of welded 316 SS construction and a self-sealing cable system that protects the unit in the event of accidental cable cuts.
Krohne’s Optisonic 6300 clamp-on ultrasonic flowmeter features an integrated display, improved measurement accuracy, ATEX Approval, an extended temperature range and the ability to handle smaller line sizes. It is fitted with a protective casing to ensure smooth and efficient operation in demanding and hazardous conditions. Available in three sensor sizes, the flowmeter can cover the entire pipe diameter range from ½- to 160-inches. Two other sensors are available for extreme temperature applications.
Atlas Copco’s new line of ZS screw blowers average 30 percent more energy-efficient operation than conventional lobe blower technology. Industries that will benefit are municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants, where air blowers typically represent up to 70 percent of the total electricity costs. The efficiency of this blower is attributed to the screw technology. Other features that generate increased efficiency and reliability are the integrated gearbox, the oil system and the design that integrates all individual components into a plug-and-run solution.
Sioux Corp.’s trailer-mounted steam cleaners are used for removing oil and grease from heavy equipment; thawing and de-icing equipment, pipes, valves, drains, and culverts in cold weather; de-gassing tanks; and cleaning and sterilizing facilities and equipment. The cleaner includes a generator and water tank for remote use. The units will produce 2 or 4 gpm steam at 250 psi and 320 degrees Fahrenheit. All mobile steam cleaners come standard with an anti-freeze circulation package.
Forston Labs’ LabNavigator is a handheld analytical meter for the lab, plant/facility or field. It collects data from a variety of sensor types including pH, ORP, ISE, colorimeter, turbidity, spectrophotometer, conductivity, TDS, salinity, force or impact, gas detection (such as CO2, O2), as well as soil moisture. The unit comes with an interface, electrode amplifier, temperature probe, USB cable, USB storage device, AC power adapter, NavPilot data analysis software and NavCoPilot method development software.
Photovac’s 2020ComboPRO uses photoionization detection technology to detect ethanol leaks in fuel ethanol plants. The measurement of ethanol leaks in fuel ethanol production facilities is essential for compliance with the air quality operating permit requirements of NSPS Subpart VV. A large digital display prompts the operator through basic operations, and critical data is displayed in less than three seconds. It boasts a wide measurement range of 0.1 ppm to 10,000 ppm, and alarms alert the operator when pre-defined limits are exceeded.
Endress+Hauser’s Liquiphant M is a density meter that provides on-line measurements, eliminating the need for off-line procedures and laboratory measurements.
