Val-Matic swing check valve

The AWWA swing check valve from Val-Matic Valve & Manufacturing Corp. is designed for municipal and industrial water and wastewater applications. The valve prevents backflow by automatically closing when fluid reverses direction. Features include a ductile iron disc that swings open upon pump startup. When closed, the valve provides a tight shutoff through the field-replaceable stainless steel seat. Valves are available with three closure options (lever and weight, air cushion, lever and spring) and 2- to 24-inch and 30- to 48-inch sizes. 630/941-7600;

Assmann large double-wall tanks

Cylindrical double-wall tanks from Assmann Corporation of America eliminate chemical spills and the need for lined concrete containment. The molded tanks feature uniform walls and heavy top sidewall and dome for chemical and corrosion resistance, while the primary inner tank and secondary locked-on outer containment ensures against chemical spills. Tanks are available in sizes from 20 to 6,550 gallons. 888/357-3181;

Endress+Hauser cell density sensor

The OUSBT66 sensor for cell density from Endress+Hauser uses near-infrared light absorbance to monitor cell density in real time, providing an easy and reliable method for measuring biomass concentration. The sensor can be operated continuously up to 158 degrees F and exposed to 275 degrees F with the lamp turned off for CIP, SIP or steam sterilization in an autoclave. 888/363-7377;

Dow reverse osmosis elements

Filmtec ECO reverse osmosis elements from Dow Water and Process Solutions combine membrane chemistry and low dP feed spacers for lower energy costs and reduced chemical consumption when RO is followed by a mixed bed ion exchange unit. The elements, available in ECO-4001 and ECO-440i configurations, are designed to deliver up to 40 percent lower salt passage at up to 30 percent less energy.

Rain for Rent TDH calculator app

The TDH calculator mobile app from Rain for Rent can be used by engineers, field operators and technicians to determine pump selection. The free app can be downloaded from iTunes. 800/742-7246;

Pulsar sludge interface monitor

The Sludge Finder 2 sludge interface monitor from Pulsar Process Measurement uses a self-cleaning transducer to bounce a sonar signal from the interface layers and analyze the signal to provide a profile of the sludge levels, including RAS and FLOC measurement from a single transducer. 850/279-4882;

Sage thermal mass flowmeter

The Basic thermal mass flowmeter from Sage Metering features low power consumption and can be used for any gas. The meter has an all-stainless steel probe or inline sensor, 4-20 mA signal and pulse output. 831/242-2030;

Badger Meter utility management software

ReadCenter AnalyticsPro and ReadCenter Analytics+ software from Badger Meter provides water and gas utilities with access to metrics and information for efficient operation. When coupled with Advanced Metering Infrastructure hardware, the software helps utilities optimize operations for increased productivity. The enhanced dashboard enables water utility personnel to view potential issues such as leaks, tampering, no usage, reverse flow and endpoints that are reaching the final days of useful life. Users also can click to see condition details. 800/876-3837;

Xylem multiparameter instruments

MultiLab IDS laboratory instruments and smart sensors for the water and wastewater industry from YSI, a xylem brand, can measure three parameters at a time — pH, ORP, BOD or conductivity — or three of the same parameters. The MultiLab line includes the 4010-1 (one channel), 4010-2 (dual channel) and 4010-3 (three channel) as well as smart digital probes for optical-based BOD5, pH, ORP and conductivity measurement. 800/897-4151;

Markland suspended solids density meter

The suspended solids density meter from Markland Specialty Engineering Ltd. monitors sludge concentrations in pipelines, clarifiers, tanks and sand/membrane filters. Using non-radioactive ultrasound, the meter measures primary, secondary, return-activated and backwash sludge, even concentrations too thick for optical methods. The inline pipe spool-piece sensor is non-intrusive and provides a continuous linear reading of suspended solids. Throw-in style probe is available. 905/873-7791;

Fluid Components International analyzer flow switch/monitor

The FS10A analyzer flow switch/monitor from Fluid Components International meets requirements for safety integrity level (SIL) 2 compliant service and is classified as a Type B subsystem in accordance to IEC 61508-1 with a hardware failure tolerance of 0. The instrument’s wetted parts are corrosion-resistant 316L stainless steel with Hastelloy-C22 sensor tips. 800/854-1993;

Opto 22 groov interface app

The groov View for iOS and Android apps controls how groov browser-based operator interfaces are displayed on smartphones, tablets and other devices. The apps are an optional part of Opto 22’s groov, a way to securely build and deploy Web-based operator interfaces for automation, monitoring and control applications. 800/321-6786;

Victaulic direct groove, two-piece coupling

Rigid and flexible Advanced Groove System couplings from Victaulic are designed for piping systems up to 60 inches in diameter, install in less than an hour and offer pressure ratings up to 350 psi. 610/559-3300;

Sensorex free chlorine sensors

FCL500 series free chlorine sensors from Sensorex Corp. use amperometric measurement technology to monitor free chlorine in process applications. With three models covering the 0-2 ppm, 0-5 ppm and 0-10 ppm ranges, the sensors can be used in new installations or as a field replacement for existing sensors in drinking water disinfection, distribution and industrial water treatment systems. The sensors interface with PLC, SCADA and other process control systems via 4-20 mA output. 714/895-4344;

Krohne Optiwave 5200 radar level meter tools

The Optiwave 5200 C/F radar level meter from Krohne is designed for liquid applications in a 98-foot measuring range. The GHz FMCW, 2-wire, loop-powered device measures up to 580 psi in general purpose and hazardous locations (Class 1, Division 1). The system’s PP and PTFE wave horn antennas are process sealed and gasket free, making them suited for corrosive conditions. The PP antenna can be mounted on process connections as small as 1 1/2 inches. The metallic horn and wavelength antennas use a dual-seal mechanism, O-ring and Metaglas process for a hermetic seal in toxic or explosive applications. 800/356-9464;

Singer single-point insertion flowmeter

The model 106-SPI-MV single-point insertion electro-magnetic flowmeter from Singer Valve, in partnership with McCrometer, can be utilized with the metering valve as a standalone option or built into a 106-2SC-PCO pilot system to provide complete flow-based valve control. The insertion probe extends into the flow stream in one of the valve inlet connections and protrudes into the valve, equivalent to one-eighth of the valve diameter. The bullet nose eliminates clogging or buildup and has no moving parts. The unit can be installed on any Singer Valve model from 4 to 36 inches. 604/594-5404;
