FCI pump protection switch

The FlexSwitch FTP pump protection flow switch from Fluid Components International LLC monitors the flow and temperature of liquids, gases, slurries, syrups, lubricants and coolants. The Alarm 1 switch detects low flows between 0.01 and 3 fps, alerting the control system or operator. Alarm 2 signals when the feed line to the pump is running dry. The switch has a wide range of settings and has a maximum service operation of 2,350 psig at 500 degrees F. 800/854-1993;


SolarBee spray nozzle THM removal

The spray nozzle THM removal system from SolarBee Inc. removes four types of regulated trihalomethanes from medium and small tanks, enabling municipalities to comply with EPA Stage 2 DBPR (disinfectants and disinfection byproducts rule). Providing tank mixing and THM removal in one package, a submersible pump pushes water through the spray nozzles, where THMs are volatilized and removed from the water. Simultaneously, some of the pump flow is directed through a mixer in the bottom of the tank, ensuring water exiting the nozzles is well mixed with the remaining water in the tank. In cold climates, the spray nozzle function can be switched off while allowing the mixing function to perform, preventing ice damage in the tank. The entire removal system is portable and pre-packaged. It includes nozzle assembly, tank mixing system, submersible pump, piping and tank adapter. 866/437-8076;


Asahi/America wafer check valve

Wafer check valves in 12- and 14-inch sizes from Asahi/America Inc. are made for mounting on the discharge side of pumps in water treatment plants to prevent backflow flooding that could damage pump systems. The valves are machined from solid PVC plate stock that conforms to ASTM D1784 Cell Classification 12454A and are installed by slip-fitting between two mating flanges. The valve body automatically centers on the mating flanges once the stud pack is installed. A directional flow arrow on the valve body indicates the upstream and downstream sides of the valve. 800/343-3618;


ABB surge protection

The OVR NE12 enclosed surge protection device from the ABB Low Voltage Products division is a UL 1449 third edition certified Type 2 SPD contained within a NEMA Type 12 enclosure, designed for indoor installation on the load side of the main breaker or fuse. Each unit comes with status lights, alarm and auxiliary contacts, EMI filtering and a fused disconnect. 888/385-1221;


Tideflex mixing system

The TMS mixing system from Tideflex Technologies combines check valve technology and a piping manifold that separates the inlet and outlet to prevent stagnant water and dead spots where bacteria can form and multiply. The system can be installed in new or existing water storage tanks. 412/279-0044;


Environmental Express extraction system

The SPE-XPress solid phase extraction system from Environmental Express is designed for the extraction and evaporation required by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Method 1664 for oil and grease analysis. The system extracts the sample and evaporates the n-Hexane, eliminating the transfer step, and verifies the sample vessel is empty, utilizing a fluid sensor for greater accuracy. The system can run multiple samples simultaneously on up to six stations. The system flushes itself clean, preps the extraction disk, then filters and extracts the sample through sodium sulfate with n-Hexane. In the final stage, the system automatically transfers the extract to a pre-weighted aluminum pan where it is evaporated to dryness. 800/343-5319;
