Flomatic wafer-style check valves

Flomatic’s Model 888VFD wafer-style check valves can be close-coupled with a butterfly valve, allowing for operation of the butterfly valve in an open or closed position with no interference. Its unique poppet design operates quietly and efficiently across a wide range of flow velocities, which makes it ideal for varying flow rates in VFD-controlled pumping systems. The design helps minimize flow losses and hydraulic shocks in the pump system. The spring-loaded poppet system is guided in an oversized sleeve for stability, resulting in quiet and efficient operation regardless of flow rate. The valve begins to close as flow is reduced and fully closes at zero velocity stopping reverse flow, helping to reduce water hammer shock. It is suitable for direct-mounting of butterfly valves, eliminating the need for a 2- to 6-inch spool piece. The valves save energy and maintenance costs, are rated NSF/ANSI 61 and NSF/ANSI 372, and meet MSS SP-125. 800-833-2040;

Badger Meter Dynasonics TFX-5000 ultrasonic clamp-on meter

The Dynasonics TFX-5000 ultrasonic clamp-on meter from Badger Meter accurately measures the volumetric flow of clean liquids and those with small amounts of suspended solids or aeration, such as surface water or raw sewage. It is ideal for water and wastewater applications such as lift stations, booster pump stations and water mains. The meter provides accuracy up to plus or minus 0.5% and flow rates ranging from 0.07 to 33,000 gpm on pipes from 1/2 to 48 inches. Designed to clamp onto the outside of pipes, the TFX-5000 meter does not contact the internal liquid, allowing for installation without shutting down operations in new and retrofit applications. It is equipped with an internal clock and built-in 8 GB data-logging capabilities to log water flow down to one second. The TFX-5000 meter is also compatible with BEACON Advanced Metering Analytics and AquaCUE Flow Measurement Manager from Badger Meter. 877-243-1010;

ClearSpan Structures HD I-beam building

The new HD I-beam building from ClearSpan Structures is a combination of the sturdy I-beam frame and strong armor shield cover. As one of ClearSpan’s most versatile buildings, the HD I-beam can be built to any size and customized to live up to any industry’s standards. The building is constructed using the I-beam frame, and the framing and purlins are all crafted from galvanized steel to ensure a long-lasting life and superior stability. The I-beam frame also features a 4-to-12 ratio pitched roof with a 12-foot nominal eave height and 10-foot clearance at the eave, ensuring easy and seamless movement in and around the building. 866-643-1010;

Best Purging Systems Model YZ102 purge unit

Best Purging Systems Model YZ102 is a Type Y or Z purge unit designed to protect electrical equipment in Class I hazardous areas. When connected to a supply of protective gas and utilized in conjunction with a Model PV-2 spark-arresting purge vent, the Model YZ102 will supply, regulate and monitor the protective gas supply to a protected electrical enclosure and accomplish purging of the protected enclosure in an expedited manner. The maximum enclosure volume is 15 cubic feet, and the unit has three mounting options: universal, vertical and horizontal. The unit has an operating temperature range of 20 degrees below zero to 120 degrees F. 844-787-4348;

Flow Technology QCT Series ultrasonic flowmeter

Flow Technology’s QCT Series of in-line ultrasonic flowmeters are for use in low-viscosity liquid applications. Typical applications include water treatment for boilers and cooling towers, clean-in-place systems, mechanical seal flushing/cooling, high purity water systems, process water, cooling loops, reverse osmosis systems and small line injection systems. The QCT Series has nonwetted sensors and no moving parts, and there is nothing in the flow stream that will cause an obstruction to the flow path. The meter is available in sizes of 1/8- to 1-inch, accurate to plus or minus 0.5% of reading, plus zero stability and repeatability is plus or minus 0.2% over 10:1 calibration range. It has a 0.035 to 70 gpm flow range, 14 to 176 degrees F temperature range, and analog, scaled frequency and Modbus RTU outputs. 480-240-3400;

Franklin Miller Dimminutor channel disintegrator

The Dimminutor from Franklin Miller provides effective, automatic screening and grinding of wastewater solids in straight-through channels and wet wells. The unit reduces plastics, wood, rags and other solids to fine bits, enhancing plant operation and improving the reliability of pumps and other downstream equipment. The Dimminutor employs a smooth, continuously rotating design with high torque. As its three bidirectional rotary cutters intermesh at close clearance with stationary cutters, solids are finely reduced to a size small enough to pass through a sizing screen. A unique, cantilevered design eliminates seals or bearings near the gritty channel floor. 800-932-0599;

Asahi/America Type-21a flow control ball valve

The Type-21a seat support technology flow control ball valve from Asahi/America is available in 1/2 through 2 inches. The valve features a precision-machined PVC ball with center provisions to support PTFE seats from 0% to 100% of capable flow. It produces equal percentage flow characteristics for fine throttling. The valve requires directional installation and comes equipped with a flow direction label. Manually operated SST ball valves include a 0- to 100-degrees indicator plate and an indicator line on the handle, which doubles as a carrier adjustment tool. An ISO 5211 top flange bolt pattern and integrally molded base pad for panel mounting are standard on all Type-21a SST ball valves, and the valve body is PVC with either EPDM or FKM O-rings. 800-343-3618;

Endress+Hauser Liquiphant vibrating fork level instruments

Liquiphant FTL51B and FTL41 vibrating fork (vibronic) level instruments from Endress+Hauser reliably detect the point level of liquids in storage tanks, containers and pipes. The FTL51B features Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things capabilities, including access via wireless Bluetooth technology, automatic proof tests and verification, and easy commissioning via a mobile device. Operational clarity is provided by a high-visibility LED. The FTL51B‘s vibronic sensor is not affected by changing media properties, flow, turbulence, gas bubbles, foam, vibration or buildup. The instrument works in process temperatures of 58 degrees below zero to 302 degrees F and pressures up to 1,450 psi. It can be used in SIL2 and SIL3 hazardous locations and has built-in automatic maintenance and verification functions. 888-363-7377;

Shimadzu Scientific Instruments ion chromatograph

Shimadzu Scientific Instruments’ new ion chromatograph features a built-in electrodialytic suppressor. The suppressor minimizes band spreading and achieves high sensitivity for the quantitative determination of anions. The suppressor is rugged, providing stable functionality over long periods of operation. In addition, the system’s compact design requires less bench space. The unit features a unique, volume-minimized folded flow path, combined with optimized dialytic, enabling it to achieve high efficiency and stability. The design reduces peak spreading, which increases the sensitivity for components with low retention, such as fluoride, and improves separation from the water dip. 800-477-1227;
