Blue-White Industries Sonic-Pro MS6

The MS6 Ultrasonic Chemical Flow Meter from Blue-White uses transit time technology to closely track chemical being dosed from a chemical feed pump into the system. This allows the operator to make certain the proper amount of chemical is being injected. Data advising the exact flow rate being dosed is delivered directly from the MS6 to the SCADA system. The MS6 gives a precise measurement of chemical being fed so that proper dispensing/dosing can be easily verified thus avoiding an overdose or underdose.  714-893-8529;

Force Flow Chlor-Scale and Halogen Eclipse

To protect chlorination systems from dangerous leaks, the Halogen Eclipse emergency valve shut-off system instantly closes the container valve when a signal is received from a leak detector, panic button or SCADA. The actuator quickly installs on the tank without the use of any tools and allows manual operation of the valve while in place. During an emergency shutdown event, the system measures the actual torque applied to the valve to ensure that the valve is closed to Chlorine Institute recommended standards and provides remote confirmation that the emergency close operation successfully closed the valve. The Chlor-Scale from Force Flow safely cradles a chlorine ton container while providing critical feed and chemical inventory information. Know in real time exactly how much chlorine has been fed and how much remains in the tank. It can warn of excessive or insufficient feed rates and can be remotely monitored from a PLC or SCADA system. 925-893-6723;

Orenco Systems 4-in-1 Controller

The design is based on a maximum desired capacity with a linear torque curve. They will self-regulate without needing to adjust the speed or any other parameter, and the power draw will reduce accordingly. Open-flight screw pumps can run continuously, both empty and overfilled, with no detrimental effects on the equipment. 804-798-3939;

Duperon 5-in-1 Dual Auger System

The Duperon 5-in-1 Dual Auger System is deployed in targeted high-ragging manholes/wet wells to remove problematic debris and prevent chronic pipe and pump clogging. Removing wipes at, or near, the point they enter the sewer stops the problem where it starts without impacting downstream operations. The system captures, dewaters, compacts, conveys and stores problematic debris in a below-grade discharge pipe, where it can be emptied by vacuum trucks. This creates an opportunity to transform emergency, dirty, unsafe and manual cleanouts into planned, safe and coordinated debris removal. Simply uncover, insert vacuum truck suction tube into the discharge chute, remove debris and landfill. 800-383-8479;
