Xylem Closed-Vessel UV System

The WEDECO LBXe 850 and 1500 closed-vessel ultraviolet disinfection systems from Xylem are optimized for large-scale applications and validated according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s UV Disinfection Guidance Manual (USEPA’s UVDGM 2006). They also have been validated according to the National Water Research Institute (NWRI) 2012 guidelines by independent Carollo Engineers. The UV systems are capable of handling peak flow rates of 8.5 mgd per reactor. Both models feature an OptiCone flow diverter that channels the flow evenly across the lamps to maximize disinfection. 704/409-9700; www.xyleminc.com.

Opto 22 High-Frequency SNAP I/O Modules

High-frequency analog SNAP I/O modules with pulse-width modulation and time-proportional output from Opto 22 are designed for engineers and technicians working with high-speed machinery, equipment test beds and applications that monitor high-frequency analog signals. The SNAP-AIRATE-HFi input module connects to TTL, CMOS and open-collector outputs and is typically used for high-speed (up to 500 kHz) pulse scanning. The SNAP-AOS-29-HFi sends pulse-width modulated outputs to high-frequency transducers and can be used with test bed applications that simulate tachometer outputs. 800/321-6786; www.opto22.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. Several motor control modes are available for a range of applications. 800/927-5292; www.yaskawa.com.

Koch Membrane Systems Hollow Fiber Ultrafiltration

The MegaPure hollow fiber ultrafiltration product line from Koch Membrane Systems is designed for high-solids water and wastewater applications. Features include an advanced cartridge design for optimal solids management and reinforced hollow fiber for added reliability. It has an average continuous solids tolerance of up to 250 mg/L for high solids applications such as surface water treatment, high TOC water treatment, RO pretreatment and tertiary wastewater treatment. In many applications, the filtration system eliminates the need for clarifier pretreatment. 888/677-5624; www.kochmembrane.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.

Kruger Real-Time Contaminant Tracking System

OdoWatch 4 from Kruger, in conjunction with Odotech, is a Web-based software that identifies where odor is traveling and its intensity level. The tracking system monitors odor, contaminants (H2S, ammonia), weather conditions and user-specified alert points over time. Data is processed using the CALPUFF dispersion model. A real-time active plume is generated and overlaid on a map of the area to track the odor’s direction of travel. Data is stored and can be utilized in real time and for historical reporting. 919/677-8310; www.krugerusa.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 that can be used with amplified electrodes, nonamplified electrodes with a BNC connector or nonamplified electrodes without a connector. 508/429-1110; www.walchem.com.

HEMCO Island Canopy Hood

Island canopy hoods from HEMCO 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.

Pumps 2000 3-Inch Ball Valve Pump

The 3-inch high-volume ball valve pump from Pumps 2000 America has a flow rate of 417 gpm, self-cleaning valve, long-life diaphragm and can handle up to 1.3-inch solids. 412/963-9200; www.pumps2000america.com.

Conveyor Components Tilt Level Controls

Tilt level controls from Conveyor Components Co. are designed for dry bulk material level indication and control applications. The UL listed control units are enclosed in a cast aluminum housing with LED indicator lights to alert the operator of either the presence or absence of material. Equipped with a surface mount PC board, the unit allows for a maximum of 5,000 feet of cable between the control unit and probe. Control units are available in three models: CT-105 (NEMA Type 4, 4X), CT-106 (NEMA Type 9 Class II, Groups E, F and G) and CT-107 (NEMA Type 7 Class I, Groups C and D; NEMA Type 9 Class II, Groups E, F and G). 800/233-3233; www.conveyorcomponents.com.

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 Turbine Flowmeters

Vision Series turbine flowmeters from Badger Meter comply with the lead-free provisions of the United States Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) and are bisphenol A (BPA) free. The meters are designed for flow measurement of low-viscosity and nonaggressive liquids. 800/876-3837; www.badgermeter.com.

Rockwell Automation PowerFlex 523 AC Drives

The Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 520 Series of compact AC drives from Rockwell Automation are designed for easy configuration. Files can be uploaded or downloaded to the drive using a standard USB connection. The drive also can be programmed through built-in human interface modules that display data on the LCD screen with scrolling QuickView text and detailed explanations of parameters and codes. 414/382-2000; www.rockwellautomation.com/industries/water.
