Hach phosphorus control module

The RTC 101 phosphorus control system from Hach Co. provides real-time control of chemical dosing that helps maintain consistent phosphorus levels in effluent water. The system can be used for both open (feed forward) and closed loop (feed back) control of the chemical dose. The chemical feed pump is continuously controlled by a 4-20 mA signal or a dry contact relay. Both outputs can be utilized together. If the dose determined by the controller is below the pump minimum flow rate, the system automatically will switch from 4-20mA control to relay control. 800/227-4224;

Endress+Hauser multichannel transmitters

Liquiline CM444 and CM448 multichannel transmitters from Endress+Hauser are designed for monitoring and controlling processes in water and wastewater industries. The transmitters accept inputs from up to eight Endress+Hauser Memosens digital sensors, including nitrate, special absorption coefficient (SAC), pH, ORP, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, free-chlorine and ion selective sensors. The device recognizes any combination of Memosens sensors and starts operating immediately. The sensors can be field upgraded at any time to accept additional inputs by plugging in additional modules. 888/363-7377;

A built-in viewing window ensures cuts are on the mark. 800/769-7743;

Envirosight ROVVER laser profiling accessory

The RedLine laser profiling accessory for the ROVVER X inspection crawler from Envirosight captures and analyzes profile data from the inside of buried pipeline for planning relining projects, determining pipe life, monitoring erosion/corrosion, quantifying defects and analyzing partial collapses. The accessory attaches without tools and requires no electrical connections. A hinged mounting system makes it easy to deploy in tight spaces, while twin carbon fiber arms ensure rigidity. The accessory can be mounted to any ROVVER X pan-tilt-zoom camera and operates up to 16 hours on a single AA battery. 866/936-8476;
