Lubricant, rust inhibitor

Fluoramics has introduced HinderRust™, a zero-VOC, surface-active rust inhibitor and industrial lubricant. The product has no solvents, won't wash away and is suited for confined spaces because of its non-aerosol application. Its low viscosity and surface activity allow it to soak into every nook and cranny of cable and steel structures. It is designed to stop rust and corrosion due to salt water and salt air. When used on wire cable or rope, it both lubricates and prevents rust. Fluoramics Inc. www.hinderRUST.com


Panel meter

The Ashcroft® Model DM61 digital panel meter does more than just display the analog or Modbus RTU digital signal from a sensing device with an output. Equipped with a variety of electronic features, this input-output device allows users to configure the display to read out in their required engineering unit, recall min. & max. readings and set hi-lo alarms. Standard features also include a six-digit display, password protection and an on-board DC transducer power supply. Also available are internal or external relays, a 4-20 mA output and expansion modules to enable conversion to USB, as well as other serial outputs. Ashcroft Inc. www.ashcroft.com


Jet mixers

Jet mixers are used in wastewater treatment applications where liquid blending, solids suspension, flow generation or chemical reactions are key process parameters. Jet mixing is a very effective way to distribute mixing energy while minimizing power input in large diameter reactors. The in-tank components are FRP and/or stainless steel with no moving parts. Conventional pumps are used for the jet motive flow and are located just outside the tanks for ease in maintenance. Compared to alternative mixing technologies, a KLa jet mixing system offers: Proven 20+ Years Design Life, Low Installed Cost, Low Maintenance Cost, Superior Process Performance, and Superior Corrosion and Abrasion Resistance KLa Systems Inc. www.klasystems.com


Access interlock

Kirk Key's HD Series Type DM Access Interlock is designed to protect equipment and workers from costly errors during electrical and switchgear maintenance. The heavy-duty interlock ensures that steps cannot be skipped and that a safe, predetermined sequence of operation is followed. The HD Series is made entirely of electropolished 316 stainless steel and offers excellent performance standards in high temperature or corrosive environments. The interlock is applicable for hinged doors, manhole covers, sliding door hatches, or equipment that will not accommodate a precise-fitting door lock or require varying travel to latch.

Oldham Gas www.oldhamgas.com


Ductile iron pipe

The new NXT DDP product line from U.S. Pipe provides better joint deflection, pumping costs and corrosion protection when compared to previous water transmission systems. Allowing joint deflection up to seven degrees, the NXT gasket is available in both restrained and non-restrained versions. The unique design allows lower insertion forces than previous "push-on" gasket designs. Taking advantage of recent developments in casting technology, the NXT DDP system allows the pipe wall to be thinner than previously available, which reduces weight and increases the inside diameter, allowing greater flow and reduced pumping cost. Corrosion protection is provided by various combinations of standard and advanced coatings. US Pipe and Foundry Co. www.uspipe.com


Check valve

Val-Matic's AWWA Swing Check Valve is designed for industrial water and wastewater applications and incorporates features that provide energy savings, ease of maintenance and extended valve life. Swing check valves are used to prevent backflow by automatically closing when fluid reverses direction. These valves feature a ductile iron disc that swings open upon pump startup to provide a 100% unrestricted, full-flow area and energy savings. When closed, the valve offers a tight shut-off, through-the-field, replaceable stainless steel seat that is raised from the body to assure sealing in applications with high solids. This resilient seat incorporates integral O-ring sealing surfaces for drop-tight sealing at both high and low pressures. Val-Matic Valve & Manufacturing Corporation www.valmatic.com


Narrow transducer

Phoenix Contact's MINI Analog family now includes a transducer designed for frequency voltage signals. Common types of inputs include dry relay contacts, NAMUR sensors, and NPN and PNP signals. The MINI Analog family has a thin 6.2 mm housing and T-bus power bus capabilities that save space and drastically reduce installation time.
