AMETEK point level switch

The Z-tron IV point level switch from AMETEK Drexelbrook features an all-electronic design. Cote-Shield circuitry enables the switch to ignore coatings and buildup on the sensing element. Dust or tunneling won’t produce a false signal. The switch only reacts to actual high- or low-level conditions. The one-piece design allows for easy installation through a single 3/4-inch vessel opening. 800/553-9092; www.drexelbrook.com.

Badger Meter flow monitor

The ER-500 series flow monitor from Badger Meter is designed for challenging environments. Meters can be connected to a network for remote monitoring and process automation. Models support multiport linearization tables for increased accuracy. Alarm parameters warn of changes in process or pipeline. 800/876-3837; www.badgermeter.com.

CW Industries reversing rocker switch

GRS-6024 series momentary action full-size reversing rocker switches from CW Industries are available in DPDT center-off construction. The RoHS compliant switches are rated at 40 amps, 12 volt DC and feature self-cleaning contacts. Made of heavy duty nylon with copper alloy terminals, the switches have a male 0.25-inch quick-connect terminal for ease of installation and can be mounted in a 1.58- by 0.948-inch panel opening. 800/285-2121; www.peerlesselectronics.com.

FLIR E-Series thermal cameras

The camera features a 3-inch color LCD display, wide-angle focus-free lens, intuitive on-camera button controls, onboard digital camera and MSX (multispectral dynamic imaging), which integrates visible details from digital photos onto IR images. 866/477-3687; www.flir.com.

Mouvex seal-less drive eccentric disc pumps

The SLC4 and SLC8 seal-less drive eccentric disc pumps from Mouvex, part of the Pump Solutions Group, are designed for general industrial applications, as well as for chemical-based compounds. The pumps can handle up to 145 psi (SLC4) and 87 psi (SLC8). Features include self-priming and dry-run capabilities, temperature range of 5 to 212 degrees F, solid particle handling of 0.079 inches and soft particle size handling of 0.25 inches. Approved for use in ATEX atmospheres, a heating jacket is available. 909/557-2900; www.psgdover.com.

HEMCO island canopy hood

Island canopy hoods from HEMCO are designed to collect and exhaust corrosive vapors, heat, steam and odors when mounted over areas with water baths, hot plates or portable equipment. Hoods are made of one-piece composite resin and can be wall-mounted or suspended from the ceiling. Optional side panels prevent cross drafts. 800/779-4362; www.hemcocorp.com.

Hach FL900AV flow logger

The FL900AV flow logger from Hach, together with the AV9000 analyzer, dampens EMF and RFI noise for smoother, more accurate measurements. Velocity measurements can account for water temperature swings and salinity concentrations. Advanced diagnostics verify that the sensor is working properly. 800/368-2723; www.hachflow.com.

Walchem W100W controller

The W100W controller from Walchem has three control outputs, large icon-based display and multiple language support. Other features include universal sensor input, while the cooling tower/boiler model has an optional analog (4-20 mA) output for recording, data logging or connection to energy management systems. The conductivity, pH/ORP and disinfection W100W has three models for use with amplified electrodes, nonamplified electrodes with a BNC connector or nonamplified electrodes without a connector. 508/429-1110; www.walchem.com.

Xylem intelligent pump station controller

The MultiSmart intelligent pump station controller from Flygt – a Xylem Brand, can control up to six pumps. Default settings can be adapted to suit the requirements of individual pump stations, while a remote control feature reduces the frequency of site visits. An alarm feature prompts the operator to carry out necessary maintenance to prevent problems occurring in the system. Based on field tests, the controller can reduce pump station energy consumption by 35 percent. 704/409-9700; www.flygtus.com.

Rockwell Automation voltage monitor

The Allen-Bradley i-Sense voltage monitor from Rockwell Automation reads incoming power, providing data that pinpoints voltage-based power events and reveals any consequent relationship between voltage sags and downtime. 414/382-2000; www.rockwellautomation.com/industries/water.

Dialight LED flood light

DuroSite and SafeSite LED flood lights from Dialight are designed for hazardous and industrial applications. The 14- by 14-inch lights deliver 10,750 lumens at 107 watts and are available in various NEMA optical configurations. Features include 20 kV surge protection, tempered glass lens and powder-coated aluminum housing. 732/919-3119; www.dialight.com.

Reed Manufacturing deburring tool

The DEB1 deburr and chamfer tool from Reed Manufacturing Co. is designed for PVC, CPVC, ABS, PE and PP pipe up to 2 inches in diameter. Features include a slip-resistant knurled grip and blade that can be sharpened or replaced. 800/666-3691; www.reedmfgco.com.

Carbonair low-profile air strippers

STAT low-profile air strippers from Carbonair Environmental Systems are designed to remove volatile organic compounds, including disinfection byproducts such as chloroform, bromoform and other trihalomethanes (THMs), from municipal and industrial drinking water. Certified to meet NSF/ANSI 61G requirements, the air strippers can achieve 99.9 percent or greater VOC removal and handle flows up to 1,000 gpm per unit. Multiple tray configurations and blower options enable the units to meet customized site requirements. 800/526-4999; www.carbonair.com.

Yaskawa medium voltage AV drive

The MV1000 medium voltage AC drive from the Drives and Motion Division of Yaskawa America is designed for energy savings and improved process control. Features include modular design, high efficiency and low harmonics. Smart Harmonics technology reduces input total harmonic distortion (THD) to less than 2.5 percent without filters, exceeding IEEE 519-1992 requirements by nearly 50 percent. The MV1000 uses two 5-voltage step bridges per phase to generate 17 level line-to-line voltage output to the motor.
