Grating system

Bilco

Bilco's redesigned fall protection grating system is a permanent means of fall protection for its floor access doors. Now constructed of lightweight aluminum grating with a safety-yellow powder coat finish, it is more durable, attractive and scratch-resistant. It also features stainless steel hardware for corrosion resistance, including a hold-open device that secures each panel in the full 90° position, maximizing the access area. It is available on all standard-size 300 PSF and H-20 reinforced access doors and custom size doors when specified. Retrofit kits are also available.

Gas mass flowmeters

Eldridge Products Inc.

Digester gas is an important byproduct of water and waste treatment. Measured for local, state and/or federal reporting, digester gas is also used to provide power for the treatment plant itself or sold to others as a means of reducing the net operating costs. Eldridge Products' Master-Touch™ thermal gas mass flowmeters are calibrated with a CH4/CO2 gas mixture for the best accuracy when measuring digester gas. A wide variety of physical configurations support virtually all installations - and with no need for temperature and pressure corrections, Master-Touch flowmeters further reduce operating costs.

Commercial meters

Sensus

The Sensus OMNI™ meter has the precision to capture low flow water usage and the durability to measure high flows with an unprecedented accuracy range - all with virtually no wear to the meter. The key to this optimal measurement performance is the patented Floating Ball Technology (FBT). FBT employs an impeller with a ball design that makes the impeller weightless in the water line. When coupled with the Sensus FlexNet™ communication network, the OMNI meter provides a smart water solution that positively impacts a utility's bottom line by detecting leaks, saving money and minimizing time spent on meter repairs.

Control system

Halogen Valve Systems

The Hexacon Model III control system from Halogen has a new OLED information display and optional programmable relay interface module that provides clear, timely informational outputs. Further, the new optional second battery allows quicker and more reliable valve closures. Its microprocessor system measures and applies a torque of 30 foot-pounds or 50 foot-pounds for test or emergency valve closures for cylinder and ton container valves. All fire codes recognize and approve the "automatic- closing, fail-safe shutoff valve" system in lieu of a scrubber. With a SCADA option, it provides actuator closure status and error codes to analyze and solve problems.
