7. Pulsar Measurement OCF 6.1

The OCF 6.1 open-channel flow and tank level meter from Pulsar Measurement allows the user to continuously monitor, display, totalize and data log flow through any flume or weir, or measure the level or range of fluids in tanks or vessels. Use the isolated 4-20mA to transmit flow to remote chart recorders or displays, and the control relays are programmable for level/flow alarm and flow proportionate pulse for samplers, chlorinators or remote totalizers. New features include a built-in 26-million-point data logger with software for easy reporting, expanded flume and weir selections, CE approvals, and optional Modbus RTU communications. 888-473-9546;


8. Boerger BLUEline

The BLUEline rotary lobe pump from Boerger is a self-priming, valveless, positive-displacement pump used to convey viscous and abrasive materials. There are 21 pump models in six series with pulsation-free operation, fully reversible rotation, dry-run capabilities and flow rates up to 7,500 gpm. The pumps are stable and wear resistant with a maintenance-in-place design that allows for all wetted parts to be easily replaced through the front cover without removing the pipe or drive systems. 612-435-7300;

9. Crane Pumps & Systems Barnes Pressure Sewer EcoTRAN

The Barnes Pressure Sewer EcoTRAN from Crane Pumps & Systems provides a practical and environmentally safe alternative to traditional gravity sewers. Even in locations with difficult terrain, it reduces sewage infrastructure costs by allowing smaller-diameter piping to be used in place of large complex septic sewage systems, making it a suitable sewer choice. It collects and grinds sewage in an underground basin, then transports it to a remote private or municipal wastewater treatment plant. 937-778-8947;

10. JAECO Fluid Systems FRAM

FRAM diaphragm metering pumps from JAECO Fluid Systems are hydraulically actuated and designed for accurate, completely leak-proof metering of difficult-to-handle liquids.

SCADA System

14. Flowrox Malibu

The Flowrox Malibu portal is a combined IIoT online process monitoring, maintenance and analysis tool. The data is collected from sensors on a device, sent to a cloud, processed and shown in the Malibu portal. It is easy for anyone to view and use, because data is presented through a 3D model of the actual pump station, filtration process, thickener or other devices. This IIoT online process-monitoring portal enables maintenance and analysis. It collects data from smart products in operation and converts it into an easily accessible and visual format. It also functions as an analytics tool. Together Malibu and smart products create Flowrox Digital Services. 410-636-2250;
