Wanner Engineering Hydra-Cell Touch-Screen Controller
The Control Freak touch-screen controller from Wanner Engineering is designed to control motor speed on for Hydra-Cell pumps. The controller lets the user enter flow rate, volume in gallons or liters and system pressure in psi or bar. The controller automatically runs the pump manually at the desired flow rate or volume total/time or in preset batches. It can run up to six pumps with one screen and 10 separate batch setup screens per pump. Features include a variable frequency drive (VFD) and password protection for pump algorithms. It also can be field-calibrated for greater accuracy. The 7-inch color touch screen is in a NEMA-4X (or IP) enclosure and is visible in low-light areas. Operational features include real-time clock, pump-drive information screen and analog and digital I/O for interfacing with external devices. 

Watson-Marlow Qdos 120 Peristaltic Metering Pump
The Qdos 120 peristaltic metering pump from the Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group delivers flows up to 120 L/hr (31.7 gph) at a maximum pressure of 4 bar (58 psi). All models in the Qdos family are designed to eliminate the need for ancillaries, boost productivity and reduce chemical waste. There are no valves or seals to clog, leak, gas-lock or corrode. The fully contained ReNu pumphead prevents spillage or exposure to chemicals.

Emerson CT5100 Continuous Gas Analyzer
The Rosemount CT5100 continuous gas analyzer from Emerson combine tunable diode laser (TDL) and quantum cascade laser (QCL) measurement technologies for process gas analysis and emission monitoring. It can detect down to sub-ppm levels and measure up to 12 component gases and pollutants simultaneously. The analyzer operates without consumables or no in-field enclosure and features a simplified sampling system that does not require any gas conditioning to remove moisture.

Bionomic HEI Wet Electrostatic Precipitator System 
The HEI wet electrostatic precipitator system from Bionomic Industries features discharge electrode technology that can be sized to specific applications. It concentrates a high-intensity ionizing corona in strategic areas within the collecting tube rather than distributing it along the length of the treatment area of the tubes. Features include the Ultimix conditioning system for gas saturation and collection tube cleaning, and RotaBed pre-scrubber for acid removal and particulate loading reduction. Other features include PLC-based voltage and spark controls for maximum electric field stability, nonfouling insulator locations and corrosive-resistant construction.

Metrohm Wet Chemical Analysis Platform 
The OMNIS wet chemical analysis modular platform from Metrohm USA can be expanded from a stand-alone titrator to a system that includes automation. The system can simultaneously perform four fully automated analysis and process up to 175 samples unattended. The Liquid Adapter makes reagent exchange contact-free.

Xylem Flygt Wastewater Pump Controller
The Flygt FGC400 pump controller from Xylem features advanced functionality to optimize wastewater pumping efficiency. The self-contained, plug-and-play controller can be connected to one or two pumps. It can alternate between pumps, track information on pump performance and take maintenance action. Built-in energy measurement, data loggers and level monitoring eliminate the need for electrical cabinets. Able to control pumps up to 5.5 kW, or larger using external contactors, the controller can sync with external SCADA systems and be configured via PC, USB or the controller’s intuitive HMI. The detachable interface can be mounted next to the controller or used as a handheld device.

Yardney Water Self-Cleaning Filters 
Filtaworx automatic self-cleaning screen filters from Yardney Water Filtration Systems are designed for cooling towers, industrial process water, incoming plant water, wastewater cleanup and industrial water for plant reuse. The system can be mounted in any position or orientation. It removes algae, slime and organic contaminants, sand grit and inorganic contaminants with fine mesh filtration to 50 microns. Eight models handle flow rates from 444 gpm to 3,960 gpm. Features include corrosion-resistant 304 stainless filter body and self-cleaning mechanism.

Tnemec Waterborne Acrylic Protective Coating
The single component, mastic waterborne acrylic coating from Tnemec Company is designed for use on minimally prepared sound rusted steel and previously coated surfaces. Series 118 Uni-Bond Mastic offer 200 percent elasticity and can be used with acrylic and solvent-borne urethane and fluropolymer finish coats. Surface preparation consists of power washing steel at 5,000 psi and some mechanical hand or power tool cleaning to remove loose rust, scale and deteriorated coatings.

Fluid Components International ST100 Flow Meter 
The ST100 Series thermal flow meter from Fluid Components International is designed for hydrogen gas production processes and can measure any process gas, including wet gas, mixed gases and dirty gases. The air/gas flow meter has no moving parts. No additional sensors or flow calculating devices are required for measurement. A thermal sensing element measures flow from 0.25 to 1,000 SFPS. Hydrogen can be safely measured at high flow rates from 0 to 6,600 lb/hr at 29 to 87 psi. Readings are stored in a removable, internal micro-SD card with 2GB capacity, capable of storing 21 million readings. Recording time base is user selectable with a maximum rate of 1 reading per second. The logging feature is selectable via the front panel menu or via the serial port and configuration software tools.

ADS RainAlert III Wireless Rainfall Monitor 
The RainAlert III wireless rainfall monitor from ADS alerts operators via text or email messages when rainfall intensity exceeds a critical threshold. Designed for ultralow power consumption, the monitor offers up to six years of battery life, depending on modem configuration. Applications include infiltration and inflow studies, hydraulic modeling, overflow response and reporting.

Beckart Environmental Decanter-, Disk-Style Centrifuges
Decanter- and disk-style centrifuge systems from Beckart Environmental are designed to cost-effectively handle 5 to 150-plus gpm of wastewater in municipal treatment plants. The centrifuges feature automatic operation with a minimum of operator time, no compressed air requirements and interface with existing plant process and treatment equipment.

Russelectric Training Simulators 
Training simulators from Russelectric are designed and programmed to mimic the actual operation and performance of the switchgear/system and both the automatic and manual operation of the switchgear, letting personnel familiarize themselves with the system and its operation; accurately diagnose a range of utility, generator and breaker problems, and assess the impact of changes to programmable logic controller (PLC) setpoints, such as kW values and time delays by seeing how the system responds. Simulators also are designed for developing and validating site operating and emergency procedures without interfering with operation of the actual system. Any time the switchgear is upgraded, the simulator can be used to test the modified PLC and operator interface panel (OIP) logic before downloading it to the online PLC system, greatly reducing live system testing time.
