Opto 22 LED dimmer

The Network LED Dimmer from Opto 22 uses pulse width modification (PWM) to control LED brightness (0-100 percent) for 9-30 VDC constant voltage LED lighting assemblies, including lamps, bulbs, strips, ropes and bars. When connected to an RS-485 serial network, multiple dimmers can be integrated into a lighting, automation or building control system that supports DMX512-A, modbus/ASCII or Optomux network protocols. 800/321-6786;

Omega miniature length sensors

The ZMD series of miniature length sensors from Omega feature built-in, spring-loaded torsion arms, enabling the unit to be mounted in numerous orientations, including upside down. Using a 6-inch circumference wheel, the sensor can be used on most surfaces, operating at speeds up to 3,000 feet per minute. 800/826-6342;

KSB gate valve with pressure seal bonnet

The ZTS gate valve with pressure seal bonnet from KSB has a hammer-forged steel body, enabling it to handle water, steam and other non-aggressive fluids at pressures up to 8,700 psi and temperatures to 1,200 degrees F. For internal sealing, the valve features a movable, double-wedge design. 804/222-1818;

Hach portable flowmeter

The FH950 portable flowmeter with electromagnetic sensor from Hach Flow Meter Products & Services is available with depth and velocity or velocity only. Features include step-by-step user interface, real-time data and downloads directly to a PC. The meter automatically calculates total discharge based on USGS and ISO methods. Real-time velocity is graphed on a color display. 800/368-2723;

Larson high-intensity, waterproof light bar

The LEDP10W-240E LED high-intensity LED light bar from Larson Electronics is waterproof to 3 meters submerged. Designed for rugged use, the low-heat light bar produces 20,000 lumens of light and can be switched on and off without a cool down. Made of extruded aluminum with polycarbonate lens, the light bar has 24 CREE XLamp MC-E 10-watt LEDs. 800/369-6671;

Subaru large-capacity trash pump

Centrifugal-type trash pumps from Subaru are designed to move high volumes of trash water without clogging. The PKX201T (2-inch discharge outlet) has a 6 hp overhead cam engine and delivers 185 gpm; the PKX301T (3-inch) has a 9 hp overhead cam engine and delivers 314 gpm; and the PTV405T (4-inch) has an 11 hp overhead valve engine and moves 528 gpm. Hardened cast iron volutes withstand debris. An abrasion-resistant, cast iron three-blade impeller and replaceable wear plate extend life and reduce maintenance. The pumps have a low-tone muffler and sound-suppressing air cleaner. 847/540-7300;

ConShield concrete waterproofing

Crystal-X concrete waterproofing additive from ConShield Technologies protects new and existing concrete sewer pipe and manholes, as well as dams, reservoirs, bridge decks, foundations, sewage and water treatment plants. 877/543-2094;

NPC wellpoint pump

The NPC PT-90 wellpoint pump from National Pump & Compressor, available for rent or sale, has 6-inch connections, with a flow rating of 396 gpm and 65 feet of TDH. The fuel-efficient pump is powered by a Hatz engine, offering 500 to 1,500 hours of use between servicing. Available in open diesel, stackable frame, compact or economy canopy, enclosed units emit 49 dBa at 30 feet. 888/840-5886;

Sharpe Mixers folding impeller

HYFLO 210 impellers from Sharpe Mixers are made for new installations or retrofits. The impellers have a four-blade design that folds for installation and opens with centrifugal force, locking in place when fully opened. Available in sizes up to 210 inches in diameter, the impellers eliminate the need for personnel to enter a tank. 800/237-8815;

Biowater cold-weather biofilm process

The Continuous Flow Intermittent Cleaning (CFIC) process from Biowater Technology features a robust biofilm for removing contaminants in cold weather and nitrification in temperatures down to 39 degrees F. Bacterial population is maintained in the treatment vessel on carriers that provide increased surface area for growth. The packed bed system also acts as a filter to capture solids, reducing the secondary clarification footprint and creating higher-quality effluent suitable for reuse. 401/305-3622;

Aquatech enhanced membrane bioreactor

The Aqua-EMBR enhanced membrane bioreactor for wastewater treatment from Aquatech uses an activated sludge extended aeration biological treatment process and ultrafiltration membrane system for the separation of activated sludge from treated effluent. The UF membrane is positioned outside the bioreactor tank rather than submerged in the tank or in the downstream membrane tank. The design reduces much of the feed pump energy required to maintain high crossflow velocity. 724/746-5300;

Olympus benchtop stand-alone microscope

The LV200 stand-alone benchtop microscope system from Olympus is designed to acquire low-light bioluminescence images. Special optical elements and short light path from sample to detector maximize light capture and minimize the loss of luminescence photons from living cells. Other features include a built-in, live-cell incubator and light-tight casing that prevents ambient light from interfering with imaging. 800/446-5967;

Blue-Siren open channel flow monitor

The FlowSiren open channel flow monitor from Blue-Siren is a wireless, low-power, multi-sensor that measures and provides a view of any flow condition. Using four, D-size lithium batteries, power management enables the monitor to collect and transmit data for more than a year. The monitor uses IP68 connectors and is fully submersible. Encapsulated in impact-proof plastic, the monitor can handle harsh environments. Data is automatically uploaded to a designated server or the Blue Live hosting platform. 321/242-0300;
