ITT Goulds Pumps recently introduced a complete series of larger vertical turbine pumps. Designated the M Series, the pumps are designed for a wide range of water/wastewater applications, including: raw water intake, deep well, pressure boosting, filter backwash, transfer, as well as final effluent. While all of the M Series are vertical turbine pumps, the MVC is a can-type and the MVS is a submersible model. The MVT-FF, MVC and MVS models all feature a common bowl assembly design.

Palintest offers the ChloroSense® portable reagent-free chlorine measurement system, which uses a unique electrochemical sensor to measure free and total chlorine simultaneously in a potable water sample, along with temperature. After the water sample is collected and a sensor inserted, the testing process is completely automated and accurate within a range from 0.02 to 100.0 mg/l. The system offers a simpler and less technique-dependent method for chlorine testing than standard DPD testing.

Odor control

Aulick Chemical Solutions has just introduced Sul-Fight, a non-hazardous solution that removes hydrogen sulfide and mercaptans on contact. The product was initially designed for preventing hydrogen sulfide corrosion and odor at locations such as manholes, lift stations, sludge holding tanks, and air scrubbers. However, after conducting several studies, the company discovered the product reduces hydrogen sulfide on contact when injecting directly into sludge prior to a belt filter press.

Penetrating fluid

Click here to enlarge image

To free seized or corroded assemblies, Henkel Corp. has introduced Loctite® Freeze & Release, a low viscosity, spray-on lubricant designed to shock-freeze metal parts, allowing lubricating oils to penetrate into rust layers. As the lubricant instantly freezes seized and rusted parts to -45 degrees F, hairline cracks form in the rust layer as the metal contracts. These cracks allow the product’s lubricating oil to penetrate by capillary action quickly and efficiently into the rust layer. After one to two minutes, the assembly is easy to dismantle. The product eliminates the need for cutting torches and die grinders.

Vibration switch

Click here to enlarge image

Hawk now offers the Gladiator Vibration Switch Series, a heavy-duty point level switch. The level sensing arrangement used in the Vibration Smart Switch is suitable for a wide range of liquids and solids, including slurries and pelletized materials. The sensing element includes two prongs or vanes. When the prongs on the fork are free to vibrate they are driven to their resonant frequency by piezo ceramic elements. As the level of the material to be sensed rises, the material blocks the movement of the fork. The electronics in the unit sense this change and produce an output which can be used for indication or control.

Bellows seal valves

Click here to enlarge image

Conval offers single and double bellows seal valves in standard sizes from ½" to 4" through ASME Class 2500 in Y-pattern, angle-pattern, and T-pattern body styles. These in-line serviceable, low operating torque valves are often specified when packed valves may not reliably contain fugitive emissions such as light gases or hazardous system fluids. In almost all applications, the 6-ply Inconel, welded bellows stem seal is more reliable than sliding stem seals. The Inconel bellows has been tested to MSS SP-117, and provides the longest cycle life in the industry. The double-height bellows provides the highest bellows valve flow capacity (Cv) available per pipe size.

Radio modems

Data-Linc Group’s long-range, high speed 900 MHz radio modems, the SRM7210E, have received approval for use in hazardous environments requiring Class 1 Div 2 certification. The SRM7210E is known for enhanced RF technology that provides reliability over long distances with over-the-air data rates of up to 867 Kbps -- six times faster then standard Frequency Hopping technology, for distances up to 20 miles. The modems are compact and offer flexible mounting options.

HDPE pipe

DuroMaxx pipe from Contech Construction Products exceeds existing HDPE pipe performance by offering RPE (Reinforced Polyethylene), an innovative process to introduce steel ribbing in the pipe resulting in higher strength, durability and flow rates in a watertight bell and spigot joint system. Suitable for drainage and detention applications, the composite structure creates a pipe with high strength and relatively low material mass.
