Asahi Introduces Series 83A Actuator

The Series 83A electromni actuator for ball valves from Asahi/America features a NEMA 4X enclosure with flanged cover, baseplate design and full gasket Nitrile seal to keep water out. Four captivated 304 stainless steel hex-head slotted cap screws fasten the cover and base halves together, while four Nitrile cap-plugs cover the motor mounting bolts. A flat gasket for Type 21 or Type 23 ball valves or an O-ring for the Omni ball valve seal the body to the baseplate. Molded 304 stainless steel inserts form an ISO F03, F04 or F05 valve mounting pattern. 781/321-5409;


Endress+Hauser Introduces FMX21 Level Sensor

The Waterpilot FMX21 level sensor from Endress+Hauser, made for measuring the level of sludge and wastewater, has a stainless steel housing and flush-mounted process diaphragm. With an optional Pt100 sensor, it can also measure temperature. The unit uses a ceramic cell to measure pressure. Any changes in pressure cause a change in capacitance, which the sensor’s electronics convert to a 4-20 mA signal that is linear to the level of the liquid. HART 6.0 is superimposed on the signal, enabling the operator to adjust the range remotely. 317/535-1329;
