Endress+Hauser ultrasonic biogas flowmeter

The Proline B 200 ultrasonic biogas flowmeter from Endress+Hauser measures the flow and methane content of biogas for process control, emissions reporting and energy balancing in anaerobic digesters and other biogas producing processes. The meter operates in temperatures of 32 to 176 degrees F and pressures up to 145 psi. Accuracy of volume flow is 1.5 percent of reading and accuracy of the optional methane measurement is 2 percent absolute. 888/363-7377;

Parkson Aqua Guard UltraClean screen

The Aqua Guard UltraClean screen from Parkson is designed to reduce downstream clogging by up to 50 percent over previous models. Features include an independent brush drive, second spray bar and hybrid brush design. The new brush is wider and includes longer bristles to penetrate deep into screen elements, along with hybrid rubber strips that prevent long rags and hair from twisting around the brush. 888/727-5766;

Ultra Electronics multi-channel contact closures

EOTec 2000 series multi-channel contact closures from Ultra Electronics-NSPI are designed to convert up to 10 contact closure inputs (switches, relays) into fiber optic signals for transmission over a single fiber optic link. Each module includes two inputs. An integrated backplane allows for communications between modules with no external intermodular connection. Power to all modules is derived from any standard EOTec 2000 power supply module through the integrated BUS connector, or from an external 24VDC source supplied directly to the transceiver module. 512/434-2850;

Vac-Con Power Flex telescoping boom

The Power Flex telescoping X-Cavator boom from Vac-Con can rotate up to 315 degrees, articulate up to 110 degrees and lift up to 34 feet. The boom also telescopes out 8 feet for a reach up to 28.5 feet from the truck and is top-mounted on the debris tank for front or rear positioning. 888/491-5762;

Westfall Model 3000 flow conditioner

The Model 3000 flow conditioner from Westfall Mfg. features two sets of tapered and curved vanes with precise geometrics and positioning to eliminate swirl and turbulence. The unit mounts directly into a pipeline and produces a fully developed velocity profile within six diameters downstream. The flowmeter is available in sizes from 1/2 to 120 inches in diameter and is two diameters long. The unit can be fabricated from PVC, FRP, 316 stainless steel and with or without a Teflon coating or other engineering materials. 888/928-3747;

RIDGID 600 Series tube benders

The 600 Series bender from RIDGID can bend tubes 3/16 to 1/2 inch in diameter with bend radiuses from 5/8 inch to 38 mm. The two-stage handle system enables bends from 90 to 180 degrees without crossing handles, keeping bends in-plane and accurate. Features include visible gain marks to ensure properly aligned bending angles, extra-long handles for increased leverage, vise clamp block for extra stability and cushioned handle grips. 800/769-7743;

All-Flo diaphragm pump sensor

The All-Safe DRM (diaphragm rupture management) pump sensor from All-Flo Pump Co. instantly alerts pump operators in the event of a diaphragm rupture. The system features an early warning sensor installed between the PTFE overlay and backup diaphragm that detects a leak if the PTFE overlay becomes compromised and before fluid enters the air section. A second sensor is installed in the air section. Should both diaphragms become compromised, the sensor will detect fluid in the air section. The sensors can be configured to turn on a warning light, sound an audible alarm or trigger a pump shutoff. The sensor system is powered by 120 VAC. 440/354-1700;

ABB 600 hp panel drives

The DCS800-EP panel drive from ABB is rated at 400, 500 and 600 hp at 460 VAC. The unit includes
a drive module mounted on a multi-level subpanel, along with AC contactor, fuses and control transformer as standard and optional components. The drive is UL 508A listed and has a 65 kA short-circuit rating. It is pre-wired and pre-tested for smooth startups. 800/752-0696;

KSB submersible pumps

The Amarex N submersible pump from KSB is available in eight models. Applications include wastewater treatment, sludge treatment and wastewater transport, including fluids containing long fibers and solids, fluids containing gas/air, raw, activated or digested sludge, drainage or water extraction and drainage of rooms subject to flooding. Grinder pumps with 2-inch discharge feature an S-type impeller to macerate and grind solids, carrying them through the pump for discharge. Vortex pumps feature an F-type impeller with discharge sizes from 2 to 4 inches. The KRT series has a closed-loop cooling jacket that does not use pumped media for cooling the motor. It avoids clogging, while providing lubrication to a double mechanical seal system for extended service life. It also dissipates heat, even if the submersible motors are completely exposed to the air, enabling the pump to work continuously at low water levels. 804/222-1818;

HEMCO UniFlow SE fume hoods

UniFlow SE Aire-Stream fume hoods from HEMCO are UL 1805 certified and offered in 48-, 60-, 72- and 96-inch widths in either constant air volume or restricted bypass models. 800/779-4362;

Reed Saw It blade guides

Blade guides for the Saw It pneumatic saw from Reed Manufacturing Co. are available in 21- and 30-inch lengths. The guides reach across the pipe section being cut and stabilize the blade to prevent whipping and vibration, extending blade life and squaring the cut. 800/666-3691;

Hayward spring return manual limit switch

Spring Return "dead man handle design" LHB Series manual limit switches from Hayward Flow Control are designed for critical applications requiring compliance to safety standards or plant specifications where the valve must return to a closed position after operation. The LHB-SR ensures the handle will always return to its original starting position. The spring return fits all sizes of Hayward TB Series ball valves and 8-inch BY Series butterfly valves. 888/429-4635;

Envirosight ROVVER measurement suite

ROVVER Measurement Suite (RMS) image-analysis software for the ROVVER X pipe inspection crawler from Envirosight enables operators to measure a variety of pipe attributes directly from the system's touch-screen control pendant. Using adjustable overlays, the software calculates flow level; pipe diameter, bend and offset; and the branch angle, clock position and diameter of service connections. All measurements can be stored in the system's onboard WinCam-based inspection reporting database. Measurements also can be offloaded to WinCan V8 software, the 3D module of which can build a virtual model of the inspected assets. 866/936-8476;

Nu Flow high-temp, chemical-resistant epoxy

High-temperature, chemical-resistant epoxy (RN750NP) for pipe lining from Nu Flow Technologies can reach a maximum temperature of 210 degrees F, is 50 percent stronger, cures twice as fast and has a greater chemical resistance than standard epoxy. Applications do not include potable drinking water or European pipe systems. 800/834-9597;
