Bio-Microbics, Inc.

The d-Rain Joint is a simple, low-cost, and robust onsite storm water management alternative compared to other permeable, pervious surface options and can be used wherever a permeable, pervious driveway, parking lot, street or walkway is needed.

The d-Rain Joint Rainwater Filtration System

Bio-Microbics, Inc. has expanded its stormwater treatment line with the d-Rain Joint Exterior Linear Drain Filter Expansion Joint designed for onsite rainwater management.  Bio-Microbics, Inc. manufactures innovative, economical and practical solutions, and products that solve onsite water concerns to achieve energy efficiency, and green practices. Developed originally by Bryan White of Arvis Eco to satisfy permeable, pervious driveway requirements in Indiana, the d-Rain Joint uses the low-cost concrete medium that the homeowner wanted and started offering d-Rain Joint to his other high-end code developments as an alternative to expensive pavers. 

Urban storm water runoff has become a focus in recent years.  In most cities, significant amounts of water fall onto impervious surfaces, such as roads, driveways, parking lots, etc., ending up as run‑off; sheeting across surfaces and picking up more contaminants and pollutants to simply flow out unfiltered to waterways through the storm drains and greatly reduces the amount of water infiltrating the soil.  The d-Rain Joint is a simple, low-cost, and robust onsite storm water management alternative compared to other permeable, pervious surface options and can be used wherever a permeable, pervious driveway, parking lot, street or walkway is needed.

The d-Rain Joint system is a highly effective and unique design that allows the use of traditional concrete, asphalt or paver type materials to construct a high performing permeable, pervious surface system.  Easy to install like a standard expansion joint in a driveway or walkway, the ADA-compliant d-Rain Joint drainage channel system is less than an inch (1”) wide and is virtually undetectable between the joints of a concrete slab.  The product is highly durable material and gives storm water a path to a sub-surface drainage bed; this provides an outlet for surface water to be directed to a drainage bed and collected and held or allowed to percolate back into the soil to conform to environmental conservation and protection requirements.  The channel-inserted filter captures sediment to ensure continued effectiveness of the system.

The d-Rain Joint uses rebar (standard steel, uncoated/coated, galvanized, synthetic, or sleeved with heat shrink tubing) through predrilled holes in the product to stabilize and “connect” the d-Rain Joint with poured-in-place 4” concrete slab.  The d-Rain Joint is placed on a 4” bed of pea-sized gravel, which is on a 1’ aggregate gravel bed. The d-Rain Joint drainage channels do not extend all the way to the side concrete forms this is so that the channel will become a completely enclosed channel after the concrete has set. The drain, which offers a flow rate of more than 2 gallons per minute per linear foot, installs at the same time as the surface installation.

  • Size: 13/16” (width) x 4” (height)
  • Standard Lengths: 8′
  • Filter media: 10PPI
  • Flow Rate: > 2 gallons per minute per linear foot

The d-Rain Joint is a new, innovative and cost effective method for creating permeable, pervious surfaces where LID (low impact development) stormwater management is needed.

      DO90 Dissolved Oxygen Sensor

      DO90 Dissolved Oxygen Sensor

      Engineers responsible for maintaining boiler operations will find the Model DO90 Trace DO2 Sensor from Electro-Chemical Devices (ECD) is designed for the continuous and highly accurate measurement of trace levels of dissolved oxygen, helping to maintain oxygen-free boiler feed water and reducing corrosion.

      ECD’s Model DO90 Trace Dissolved Oxygen Sensor offers reliable and effective monitoring of boiler feed water. Oxygen should only be present in trace quantities in boiler feed water, as excessive concentrations of oxygen can result in corrosion damage to the components of the steam cycle. Boiler feed water is thermally and chemically degassed to achieve oxygen-free water, a state which must be maintained throughout the steam cycle.

      The Model DO90 Trace DO2 Sensor is a lead-silver galvanic sensor with a durable PFA Teflon membrane. As a digital sensor, all of the signal conditioning, calibration and diagnostic functions are performed inside the sensor. Its signal is noise-free and it features zero calibration and air calibration.  

      The Model DO90 flow cell has been specially designed for use with the Model DO90 Sensor. The orientations of the inlet and outlet sample lines automatically purge air from the flow cell. The measurement chamber is optimized for fast response and all wetted parts are 316L stainless steel. The DO90 sensor is also compatible with ECD’s T80 Analyzer, which also works with all Model S80 Sensors.

      The DO90 Sensor offers a large measurement range, from 0.001 to 20.00 mg/L.

      Long-term stability means that drift is less than 1 percent per month.  Needing virtually no maintenance, the DO90 sensor has an easily replaceable electrode cartridge, eliminating the need for messy electrolyte/membrane replacement kits.

      The Model DO90 Trace DO2 Sensor is available as separate components, sensor, fittings, flow cell, Model T80 Transmitter or as a complete panel mounted system. The panel mount system is a complete plumb-and-play device. The system is also available as a complete kit, less the panel, for mounting to an existing water panel. Installation of the flow cell is also easy, using either the clamp style holders for wall mount or the two 10 x 32 threaded ports on the backside of the flow cell for panel mounting.

            ST102A Air/Gas Thermal Mass Flow Meter

            ST102A Air/Gas Thermal Mass Flow Meter

            The new ST102A Air/Gas Thermal Mass Flow Meter features an advanced dual-element averaging system, improving installation repeatability and accuracy for larger diameter pipes and ducts.

            Flow measurement applications involving line sizes 12 inches or greater can realize improved installation accuracy and repeatability by averaging the flow rates of two elements. Distorted, swirling and non-repeatable flow profiles can result in decreased accuracy of single point meters. It is often impractical or impossible to provide the required straight-run for a fully developed flow profile in large lines.

            The transmitter electronics average the input from two independent flow elements into a single output. Each flow element can be independently configured for insertion length and process connection to allow installation flexibility. One flow element can be integral with the flow transmitter, or both can be configured as remote for easier access and visibility to the digital display/optical four button user interface. The flow transmitter also provides independent information for each flow element, saving time when performing service checks.
