Asahi wafer check valves

PVC wafer check valves from Asahi/America are now available in 4-, 6- and 8-inch sizes. The valve's body, disc and stopper assembly are machined from solid PVC plate stock that conforms to ASTM D1784 cell classification 12454A. The valve conforms to ISO 5752 face-to-face dimensions and is installed by slip-fitting it between two mating flanges. The valve body automatically centers on the mating flanges once the stud pack is installed. The 4- through 8-inch valves operate at up to 150 psi, 10- and 12-inch valves to 9 psi and up to 120 degrees F. 800/343-3618; www.asahi-america.com.

Roembke/ENDETEC water testing vial

The single-use, water test cartridge and automated monitoring system from Roembke Mfg. & Design, ENDETEC and Engel Machinery North America is designed to reduce processing time for microbiological testing to 2-18 hours, depending on level of contamination. The water test cartridge features overmolded rigid plastic and optical grade LSR (liquid silicone rubber) in an automated production process. The test cartridge leverages a two-shot mold and subsequent robotic transfer into an integrated assembly cell to complete six processes outside the molding area and puts them into a box ready to ship. The automated microbiological testing system includes built-in incubation, optical system, user interface with interpretive software, and test cartridge for the detection of E. coli and total coliforms. 613/533-3321; www.endetec.com.

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 pole, enabling it 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 the need for decimal conversion. 815/463-8105; www.elantechnologies.net.

Premier Magnesia cement shrinkage additive

PREVent-C cement additive from Premier Magnesia prevents shrinkage and cracking by 90 to 100 percent when used in the construction or repair of water and wastewater treatment plants, reducing wastewater leakage, and preventing waste from migrating into freshwater reservoirs or aquifers. 800/227-4287; www.premiermagnesia.com.

Badger electromagnetic flowmeter

The M2000 electromagnetic flowmeter from Badger Meter features an open-flow design that reduces pressure loss and achieves an accuracy rate of ± 0.25 percent. Communication protocols include HART, Modbus, RTU and PROFIBUS DP options. 800/876-3837; www.badgermeter.com.

FreeWave board version wireless data radio

The FGR2-P board-level version, license-free, long-range wireless data radio from FreeWave Technologies offers industrial serial and Ethernet wireless connectivity. It can be incorporated into the Rockwell Automation family of PLC solutions. 800/548-5616; www.freewave.com.

Dow Water fine particle filter

The TEQUATIC PLUS fine particle filter from Dow Water & Process Solutions combines continuous cleaning and cross-flow filtration with centrifugal separation in one device. Designed to handle a range of difficult-to-treat feedwaters, the device requires minimal filter changes and is available in various flow rates with filter cut-offs from 10 to 55 microns. www.dowwaterandprocess.com.

Opto 22 upgraded I/O processors

G4D32EB2-UPG and G4EB2 I/O processors from Opto 22 enable automation professionals to upgrade a legacy mistic or Pamux G4 digital I/O system on a serial network to operate as part of a modern, Ethernet/TCP-based control system without replacing or modifying existing I/O or field wiring. 800/321-6786; www.opto22.com.

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 insertion models 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; www.us.endress.com.

Sensorex fluid monitor

The TX-3000 pH/mV transmitter from Sensorex Corp. monitors changes in process fluids, displaying pH or oxidation-reduction potential, and temperatures. The line-powered monitor can be programmed on site to measure pH or ORP. A large backlit LCD screen displays both parameters simultaneously. Two adjustable Hi/Lo relay contacts deliver results to automated process control systems. 714/895-4344; www.sensorex.com.
