Singer Valve single rolling diaphragm

The single rolling diaphragm (SRD) pressure reducing valve from Singer Valve is available in 6-inch and 8-inch sizes. The valves provide steady pressure control without the need for low-flow bypass. 888/764-7858;

Sure Seal 345-Series butterfly valves

The 345-Series butterfly valve from Sure Seal is designed for use in rugged environments and with various types of loads. The lightweight valves feature improved flow through the use of a thin disc and large valve opening. The aluminum valves are available in six sizes from 2 to 6 inches and contain no hardware on the disc that can become loose and contaminate the product. 800/382-1604;

CW Industries toggle safety cover

The CW GT-4X toggle safety cover from CW Industries features a spring-loaded design that provides protection against accidental actuation. Covers are available in white, black and red and are designed to mate with CW Industries' GTS Series toggle switches. The mounting base faceplate is glossy black steel and the safety cover is an ABS-blended plastic resin. The 0.481-inch mounting hole accepts all standard toggles with 15/32-inch mounting stems. 215/355-7080;

Generac spark-ignited engines

The 9.0 liter spark-ignited engine from Generac Industrial Power, used on Generac 80 kW and 100 kW generators, is made for use with gaseous fuel in industrial applications. Features include stainless steel intake and exhaust valves for durability and long life, Stellite (a cobalt-based alloy) corrosion-resistant valve seats and reduced valve angles to minimize friction that can result from using dry fuel. Other features include hypereutectic cast aluminum pistons for thermal expansion resistance and tighter clearances for quieter operation and longer piston ring life. A 12.9-liter engine is made for use on Generac 150 kW through 300 kW generators. 888/436-3722;

FCS ultrasonic level and flow sensor

The SonicSens 2 ultrasonic level and flow sensor from Fluid Conservation Systems provides remote monitoring of open channels, combined sewer overflows, storm drains, storage tanks and flood warning systems. The battery-powered sensor is non-contact, non-contaminating and requires little maintenance. The sensor mounts above the level to be monitored and emits a high-frequency acoustic wave to the water surface that is reflected back to the emitting transducer. 800/531-5465;

UV Pure multiplex for Hallett, Upstream systems

Designed for wastewater and potable water applications, the multiplex for Hallett and Upstream systems from UV Pure Technologies is housed in NEMA 4X cabinets and can treat up to 150 gpm. 888/407-9997;

Pentair hinged-cover polycarbonate enclosures

Hoffman brand Type 4X hinged-cover polycarbonate enclosures with stainless steel latches from Pentair Technical Products are designed to withstand harsh environments. They are corrosion resistant and feature a drip shield at the top and bottom of the enclosure body to protect the gasket area from dust and water. 763/421-2240;

ELAN Technologies level calibration tool

The QuickCal level calibration tool for water and wastewater use from ELAN Technologies has a 26-inch tapered aluminum ruler with 0.01-inch and 0.1-inch markings alongside an inset indicator strip. The ruler comes with an 8- to 16-foot extension, enabling the ruler to be lowered into the flow and removed. No confined space entry is required. The gray strip turns black when wet (it won't wick), providing an easy-to-read line for water level. Level increments correlate directly to primary device tables and flowmeters without a decimal conversion. 815/463-8105;

BinMaster wave radar level sensor

The GWR-100 Guided Wave Radar level sensor from BinMaster Level Controls measures powders, bulk solids and liquids in vessels up to 78 feet tall. The level uses time domain reflectometry to continuously measure the distance, level and volume of material contained in bins, tanks and silos. It is immune to dust, humidity, temperature, pressure and bulk density changes, as well as noise that might be present when filling or emptying the vessel. The unit features two-wire TDR measurement technology with a low dead band (hysteresis) and accuracy of ±0.2 inches. 800/278-4241;

Griffin electric-driven wellpoint pump

The quiet operating Model 6WPRE electric wellpoint pump from Griffin Pump & Equipment is a fully automatic, dry priming and dry running, self-contained portable dewatering pump. The unit is capable of pumping 1,500 gpm with 140 feet of head capacity. Diesel engines, other capacities and custom pumps are available. 866/770-8100;

Opto 22 SoftPAC controller

The SoftPAC software-based programmable automation controller from Opto 22 is designed for use with computationally intensive applications as well as applications that must log, manipulate and exchange large amounts of data. The controller runs under Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows XP operating systems and supports operation on multiple cores and processors. 800/321-6786;

Endress+Hauser optical absorption sensor

The OUSAF11 sensor for measuring optical absorbance by a process fluid from Endress+Hauser uses visible and near-infrared wavelengths of light. Designed for product loss detection, interface detection, suspended solids and turbidity measurements, the sensor is available in an immersion model for use in open tanks and basins or in an insertion model with Tri-Clamp or Varivent connections that meet 3A Sanitary Standards. The sensor can be operated continuously up to 194 degrees F and up to 266 degrees F for up to two hours. 888/363-7377;
