Singer Valve battery operated electromagnetic flowmeter
The battery-operated SPI-MV converter from Singer Valve can run independent of an external power source for an estimated three to five years. It can also be paired with an external AC or DC power source so the battery acts a power backup. A small solar panel can also be added to extend battery life 10 to 15 years. The flowmeter comes in the standard three-key touch local converter with die cast aluminum IP67 housing and has variable sampling frequencies that can be adapted to fit installation needs. The unit offers dual totalizer pulse output and internal datalogging options that can be used for SCADA integration and flow analysis. 888/764-7858

ProComSol HART Communicators
ProComSol’s hand-held HART communicators for hazardous areas offer internet access, email and other tools on one device. Devices already designed are available, or existing devices can be hazardous-area ready with the addition of a certified enclosure. The DevComDroid app for Android phones and tablets is available and existing general-purpose Android and Samsung phones can be enclosed in a hazardous-area-rated case. PC, tablets and smart phones can be converted to a full Hart Communicator via a USB, RS232 or Bluetooth HART modem. 877/221-1551

Yaskawa U1000 iQpump drive
The U1000 iQpump drive from Yaskawa America provides low harmonic distortion in a space-saving design with the same onboard intelligent pump-specific features and protection as the standard iQpump1000. It allows for seamless user transition and achieves low distortion levels without additional countermeasures. The pump drive’s matrix technology uses a system of nine bidirectional switches that convert a three-phase AC input directly into a three-phase AC output, reducing total harmonic distortion levels to less than the IEEE compliance standard of 5 percent. The U1000 iQPump is offered as a stand-alone drive, and also in NEMA 3R configured package solutions. 800/927-5292

FCI FlexSwitch FLT93 Flow Switch
The FlexSwitch FLT93 Flow Switch from Fluid Components International reduces pump repair and extends pump life by detecting dry running conditions. The dual-alarm switch monitors the flow and temperature of liquids, gases and slurries, and is ideal where sudden, unexpected reductions in media flow rates may leave pumps vulnerable to overheating. Alarm one will detect low flow from .01 and 3 feet per second and is a pre-warning signal for the control system operator. Alarm two will detect when the feed line to the pump is running dry, serving as an emergency signal to shut down the pump. The switch can be specified in either insertion or inline styles for pipe or tube installation. 800/854-1993

QED Environmental Systems LANDTEC BIOGAS 3000 fixed gas analyzer
The LANDTEC BIOGAS 3000 from QED Environmental Systems offers optimal continuous monitoring of the complete gas production process. It can use up to four sample ports to monitor methane, carbon dioxide and oxygen, with optional monitoring of hydrogen sulfide, hydrogen and carbon monoxide levels. Operators can choose up to five gases to monitor. It is calibrated to ISO/IEC 17025 standards and provides a temporary replacement unit for zero downtime when servicing. It offers a built-in liquid-level-monitoring feature equipped with a dedicated alarm and moisture removal drain, or an automatic drain option that empties the catchpot without manual intervention. 800/810-9908

CCI Pipeline Systems pipe stands
Pipe stands from CCI Pipeline Systems are designed to accommodate multiple pipe sizes, allow for 6 inches of grade height adjustment, and offer a standard base height of 30 inches tall. They can be cut to a preferred length in the field and the base plates are pre-drilled for anchor bolts. The stands are available with HDG or thermoplastic powder coat finish for corrosion resistance. ArmorCote U-bolts and ArmorPad pipe supports are used to secure pipe onto the pipe stand, and custom designs are available. 800/867-2772

Hansford Sensors 3-axis accelerometer
The HS-173R high-performance triaxial vibration sensor from Hansford Sensors is capable of providing simultaneous measurement in three axes, and is designed for use with the latest generation of route-based and stand-alone data collectors. The HS-173R uses technology based on an electromechanically coupled piezo-electric sensor mechanism, protected in a stainless steel capsule. It has an AC output via a standard M12 connector, is sealed to IP67 and can be used in a wide range of applications within an operating temperature range from -67 F to 266 degrees F. 888/450-8490

Bionomic ScrubPac custom skid-mounted scrubber system
The ScrubPac custom skid-mounted scrubber system from Bionomic is engineered to meet the demands of the process emission control application. Systems are available for batch or continuous operation, semi- or fully-automatic operation, along with pretreatment options such as high temperature gas quenchers, VOC condensers and super saturators for fine particulate capture. It also offers standard or customer-specified instruments, controls and mechanical components; local or remote system monitoring; special spill-containment skids; and modularized, skid-mounted assemblies for large system hard-to-fit spaces. The systems only require process and utility connections and are available for gas capacities from 100 through 150,000 acfm. 800/311-6767

Vaughan submersible chopper conditioning pump
The Conditioning Pump from Vaughan Company chops and mixes floating mats and accumulated solids for easier pumping. The submersible chopper pump is mounted on a portable stand and is fitted with a high-velocity mixing nozzle. The pump recirculates the content of wet wells by chopping and mixing to produce slurry that is easily pumped out. Floating mats are removed and solids that have accumulated on the floor are re-suspended. Applications include lift station conditioning, basin conditioning, influent station and channel conditioning, holding tank conditioning, and digester cleanout/homogenization. 888/249-2467

Acrison compact weigh feeders
Compact, low-profile weigh feeders from Acrison are permanently calibrated and adjustment-free. High resolution weight sensing is accomplished by the Ratiometric Digital Weight Resolver that instantaneously produces an unamplified, non-integrated weight signal with no signal delay, that can be used by one of Acrison’s mutliprocessor controllers for precise feed weight rate control. Feed rates range from less than a pound up to approximately 20,000 pounds per hour, with continuous metering accuracies ranging between plus or minus .25 to 1 percent or better at two sigma. 201/440-8300

Inpro/Seal VB45-S bearing isloator
The VB45-S bearing isolator from Inpro/Seal provides permanent bearing protection for rotating equipment against contamination ingress and lubrication loss. It uses the XX Interface coupled with an enlarged contamination chamber to achieve an IP66 rating, and an enlarged D-Groove captures oil and returns it back to the bearing housing or a grease band to block grease from traveling down the shaft and escaping from the housing. The isolator is compact, with only a .625-inch overall length, and allows for easy installation, often without the need for equipment modifications. 800/447-0524

Endress+Hauser SupplyCare 3.0 tank inventory control software
Endress+Hauser SupplyCare 3.0 is an update to its IIoT application for tank inventory management. It provides a complete overview of levels and product inventory in a company’s tanks and silos worldwide. Enhancements include hardware and software options allowing level, flow and pressure data to be displayed at a desk or handheld device regardless of location and advanced inventory tools for forecasting, reporting, stock analysis and other functions. 888/363-7377

ABB Ability Electrical Distribution Control System
ABB’s Ability Electrical Control System connects a facility’s electrical equipment with the Internet of Things and leverages circuit breaker built-in sensing and connectivity to provide the information and control functions to reduce total operating costs up to 30 percent.
