LINAK electric actuator systems

Electric actuator systems from LINAK can easily be mounted to slide gates, sluice gates and knife gate valves offering swift and maintenance free automation of manual valves to maximize efficiency. The LA36 actuator provides a linear thrust up to 10,000 N making it possible to open and close valve sizes up to DN300. The flange-mounting bracket allows simple actuator interchangeability and is compatible with ISO flanges F07 and F10. The water valve control unit ensures a reliable connection to the SCADA system, making remote control of the actuator easy. The battery backup is an add-on option ensuring a fail-safe operation in case of power cut-offs. 


Powers IntelliStation Jr. digital mixing valve

The IntelliStation Jr. digital mixing valve from Powers, a Watts Water Technologies Co., has an easy-to-install smart mixing valve that connects through the Building Auto- mation System. Passcode protected and configurable on site, the IntelliStation Jr. does not require factory preprogramming, a laptop, or special software to download for commissioning or when making adjustments to the valve. Other features include programmable point range of 60 to 180 degrees F; control of water temperature plus or minus 2 degrees F in accordance with ASSE 1017; scheduling feature with temperature setback; lead-free construction; high-temperature sanitization mode to address waterborne bacteria; and Wi-Fi enabled for easy software upgrades. 


Yaskawa America single-phase converter

Yaskawa America expanded its single-phase converter product line up to 125 hp at 460 volts and 60 hp at 230 volts. The SPC converts single-phase power to DC power for Yaskawa variable-frequency drives. The SPC’s active power regulator ensures minimal stress on the power grid, with less than 10% current distortion and 0.99 power factor at rated load. Combining a low harmonic solution with a soft-starting VFD allows for downsizing transformers and decreased installation costs. The SPC utilizes the same components found in a VFD, which significantly reduces maintenance time and expenses. 


QED Environmental Systems SlimJim electric pump system

The SlimJim electric pump system from QED Environmental Systems requires no separate control panel and features built-in auto on/off start and run-dry protection. It offers plug-in operation at 115- or 230-volt single-phase power. With a 4.5-inch outer diameter, the pump is compact and easy to handle and weighs 22 pounds. The pump’s optional three-phase operation with control panels adds other benefits, including variable speed, programmable from an iPhone, and the ability to view and change pump data and parameters. It is ideal for smaller-diameter risers such as clean-outs, collapsed pipes or bent risers. With available flow rates up to 30 gpm, the SlimJim can be used in vertical or horizontal applications and is suitable for the same applications as air-powered pumps but operates at higher flow rates. 


Wanner Engineering Hydra-Cell D66 Series displacement pumps

Wanner Engineering’s Hydra-Cell D66 Series sealless positive displacement pumps are for use in a wide range of processing, OEM, municipal and commercial applications. The pumps offer a maximum flow capacity of 65.7 gpm and pressure ratings up to 700 psi for models featuring brass, ductile iron, or 316L stainless steel pump heads and 250 psi for models equipped with polypropylene pump heads. The sealless design of the pumps means that there are no mechanical seals, cups or packing to leak, wear or replace. Spring-loaded, horizontal disk check valves and the sealless design enable model D66 pumps to handle viscous fluids and abrasive particulates up to 800 microns in size.
