Endress+Hauser upgrades level transmitters
Endress+Hauser added Heartbeat Technology to its Micropilot FMR5X free-space radar and FMP5X Levelflex guided radar level transmitters. Heartbeat is an onboard diagnostics and instrument verification system that continuously monitors the status of mechanical, electromechanical and electronic components in the sensor, and sends alerts when it detects a problem. Alerts are sent in accordance with NAMUR recommendation NE 107 and are displayed at the device. Verification information, reports, diagnostics alerts and instrument data can be viewed at the control monitoring system, or via a web browser running on a PC, tablet or smartphone. 888/363-7377

Nidec medium-voltage TITAN TEFC horizontal large motors
Nidec Motor’s new line of TITAN totally enclosed fan-cooled motors are offered in 150 through 600 hp and have cast iron frames, conduit boxes, bearing caps and end shields. They are designed to operate in 104 degrees F ambient temperature and at a maximum altitude of 3,300 feet above sea level. Motors rated Class B rise at 1.0 service factor and Class F rise at 1.15 service factor with full Class F or better insulating materials, and the company conducts a short commercial test on each one. The tests consist of no-load current, locked rotor current performed at reduced voltage, winding resistance, high potential and a vibration check. 888/637-7333

Bionetix International Macro N/P biostimulant
Macro N/P from Bionetix International is a free-flowing powder with the optimal 5-1 nitrogen/phosphorus ratio for nourishing helpful bacteria in wastewater. This combination of macronutrients enhances biological wastewater treatment processes and soil bioremediation by helping existing bacteria, including those introduced as supplements, to grow, reproduce and stimulate the bioremediation cycle. Reclamation crews can speed environmental cleanup without the use of harmful chemicals. 514/457-2914

Ronk Electrical NanO2 aeration process
The NanO2 from Ronk Electrical provides enhanced levels of dissolved oxygen for increased biological activity, enhanced organic sludge reduction, oxidation of various contaminants, and wastewater odor management. Potable or wastewater is pressurized, then atomized and passed through a concentrated gas zone within the NanO2 process vessel. This creates the nanobubbles in the high-density, two-phase solution that is discharged as determined by the process control. NanO2 nozzles can be adapted to produce a range of bubble sizes to meet the requirements of many applications. 800/221-7665

IWAKI America air-operated diaphragm pump
IWAKI America’s TC-X800 Series pump offers a heavy-duty body design, operation at variable air pressures, and is suited for both start/stop and fully continuous-duty pumping applications. With maximum flow rates at 211.3 gpm and maximum discharge head of 280 feet, it can handle high head pressure and long discharge lines. The 3-inch diaphragm pump is available in stainless steel, aluminum, polypropylene and cast iron. 508/429-1440

Grundfos MLE permanent-magnet motor for the Hydro MPC BoosterpaQ
The new MLE motor for the Hydro MPC BoosterpaQ systems from Grundfos include ECM technology and covers 1 through 15 hp in three-phase 460 to 480 volts and up to 2 hp in one-phase 200 to 240 volts. The motors exceed IE5 motor efficiency standards, currently the highest level for electrical motors. BoosterpaQ systems use controls to stop pumps during low flow, run in a more economical mode, stage pumps on when it is more efficient, and lower setpoint pressure at lower flows when pipe friction loss is less. 800/921-7867

Conveyor Components model TA belt alignment control
The model TA (Tilt Action) belt alignment control by Conveyor Components is for use on most belt conveying systems and wastewater filter presses, biomass transfer conveyors or other associated equipment. It is available in weatherproof or explosion-proof enclosures, with 120- or 240-VAC input power rated microswitches. The TA has dry, unpowered 20 amp SP/DT microswitches, or 15 amp DP/DT microswitches, to allow control of four separate output functions. It can operate in either direction, and the trip points are field-settable with a simple set-screw adjustment on the cam. The housing is cast aluminum, with optional epoxy coating available for corrosive environments. 800/233-3233

Aqua-Aereobic aerobic granular sludge system
The AquaNereda aerobic granular sludge system from Aqua-Aereobic replicates the same effluent quality as an enhanced BNR facility, but without the use of chemicals. The reduced footprint and low energy requirement of the AquaNereda process provides an alternative for high-performance plants. The biological treatment technology purifies water based on bacteria growing the compact granules. 800/940-5008  

Neptune’s Abaque Series peristaltic pumps
The redesigned Abaque Series peristaltic heavy-duty pumps from Neptune have a new hose connection system with an improved clamping feature, with fewer parts to simplify hose replacement. It has a redesigned pump rotor to decrease weight and increase strength, and an oval viewing window that allows shoe adjustment without removing the cover. The seal-free design eliminates leaks and product contamination. The pumps are self-priming and can run in forward or reverse, and offer suction-lift capabilities up to 25.5 feet. It can run dry without adversely affecting performance, pressure and accuracy. It is available in ductile iron and stainless steel, allowing higher discharge pressure up to 217 psi. 215/699-8700

BJM Pumps RAD-AX SKG submersible pumps
The SKG Series from BJM Pumps feature RAD-AX Dual Shredding Technology and are designed to obliterate flushable wipes and other difficult solids in municipal and industrial wastewater applications. The radial and axial shredding elements are constructed of hardened 440C stainless steel with a Rockwell hardness of 55C plus. They have an efficient, high-solids passage impeller and volute design, coupled to a high-torque four-pole motor available in 2, 3 or 5 hp. Hardened cast iron construction stands up to rough handling and pumping gritty water. An automatic thermal switch turns the pump motor off if the temperature and/or amp draw rises too high. When the motor cools, the switch will automatically reset and the pump will turn back on. 877/256-7867

QED Environmental Systems Power Pro ESP electric sampling pump
The Power Pro ESP electric sampling pump from QED Environmental Systems combines the benefits of the two common types of electric groundwater sampling pumps — the high-powered pump and the disposable pump — into one unit. Its in-water sensor indicates when the pump has hit water, and numbered hash marks on the cable allow for easy measuring past the waterline. The sensor also works in reverse to provide run-dry protection. When the sensor no longer detects water, it stops the pump and automatically restarts it when the water level recovers. 800/810-9908

Val-Matic Swing-Flex and Surgebuster check valves
Val-Matic’s Swing-Flex and Surgebuster check valves have a short, 35-degree stroke that provides fast closure to minimize slamming and slam-related surges. The Swing-Flex has a nonclog design with only one moving part, and is constructed of ductile iron with cold working pressures up to 250 psi. The Surgebuster has all the design features of the Swing-Flex, with the addition of the Disc Accelerator to prevent slamming in the most severe applications. The accelerator is a precision-formed stainless steel mechanism that closes the valve disc rapidly, avoiding slamming by flow reversal and allowing the disc to be stabilized under flow conditions. The accelerator is fully enclosed within the valve and completely out of the flow path. 630/941-7600

Hydraulic Institute produces pump standards on new CD version

Bionomic HEI Wet Electrostatic Precipitator
Bionomic’s HEI Wet Electrostatic Precipitator incorporates a discharge electrode technology that can be sized to specific applications. It concentrates a high-intensity ionizing corona in strategic areas within the collecting tubes, instead of distributing it along the entire length of the treatment area. The resultant particle charging fields deliver higher particulate charges, migration velocities, and a smaller precipitator size for gas capacities from 1,000 through 300,000 acfm. It incorporates the Ultimix Conditioning System for gas saturation and collection tube cleaning, and the RotaBed Pre-Scrubber for acid removal and particulate loading reduction. 201/529-1094
