Grundfos high-efficiency IE5 motors and pumps 
Grundfos’ E-pumps with integrated frequency converter are designed for total control, customer convenience and environmental sustainability. Grundfos’ MGE E-motors exceed the IE5 requirements by more than 2% with a motor efficiency of 95.7% at 380 V/2,600 rpm. The built-in application control in MGE E-motors reduces not only the energy consumption of the pump, but also optimizes the performance and efficiency of the entire system. The permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM) are designed specifically for frequency converter operations and optimized for pump applications and high part-load efficiency. The PMSM also has a built-in frequency converter that enables variable-speed operation with benefits in pump applications ranging from energy savings, process control, extra functionalities, built-in motor protection, higher performance and more compact pumps, reduced water hammer due to long ramp times and low starting currents. 800-926-6688;

RedZone Robotics Vertue manhole inspection sensor
RedZone Robotics launched the Vertue, a multi-sensor inspection tool for manhole inspections. Virtue captures full multi-sensor data, including 360-degree, high-definition imagery, laser and positioning of manholes, eliminating the need to go back and re-inspect due to poor lighting conditions or blurry images. Vertue is offered as a standalone product and service or as part of the Accelerated System Assessment Program from RedZone Robotics. The program provides an accelerated approach to condition assessment across an entire collections system, enabling a system owner to identify and prioritize the maintenance and repairs that are needed. The Accelerated System Assessment Program not only addresses the most severe infrastructure issues, but also leverages the nearly 100 million feet of inspections already assessed across hundreds of systems, and establishes a baseline condition required for long-term asset management planning. 412-476-8980;

Syrinix PIPEMINDER-ONE Acoustic leak and pressure monitor
The PIPEMINDER-ONE Acoustic from Syrinix is a smart network-monitoring tool that combines high-resolution pressure monitoring and leak detection in one solution. Combined with RADAR, Syrinix’s cloud analysis platform, PIPEMINDER-ONE Acoustic locates leaks on a broad range of pipeline materials and sizes. Like the rest of the PIPEMINDER-ONE family, the Acoustic version triangulates pressure events and sends intelligent alarms so potential problems can be identified and fixed on a utility’s network. All data is recorded by a precise time-stamped management information system synced to reliable 4G, 3G and 2G mobile networks. Because units are widely spaced along the distribution network, fewer PIPEMINDER-ONE Acoustic units are needed to obtain valuable high-resolution data.
