Hydraulic-magnetic circuit breakers

Phoenix Contact introduces the HMC series of circuit breakers, the company’s first 120 V AC hydraulic-magnetic circuit breakers for use in Class I, Division 2 applications. The UL-approved products utilize a fully sealed hydraulic-magnetic design that allows for accurate power switching and reliable overcurrent protection. Each breaker is rated for 50 V DC, and breakers up to 15 A are also dual-rated at 120 V AC. They have a short circuit current rating (SCCR) of 1 kA and a temperature operating range of -40°C to +65°C. Pluggable line and load terminations, along with the unique T-bus option allows breakers to snap into a common power bus. These features ease installation and reduce wiring.

Admixture for concrete

KALMATRON® KF-A is a powder added to concrete mixes. It alters the interior structure of concrete, providing liquid and vapor impermeability, and works in a wide variety of temperatures up to +400°C without failure or cracking. It works as a water reducer during mixing and pumping; a plasticizer during transportation and placement; a shrinkage controlling and curing compound during setting time; a strength gainer and impermeability performing agent during hardening time; and a rebar corrosion inhibitor during batching. Safe for use with drinking water and food containing structures.


Pressure monitoring

The Hydro-Guard® pressure monitoring system provides water professionals with pressure data throughout the distribution system and near-time alerts when conditions change. Often installed in district metering areas (DMAs), pressure zones, water tanks, or system interconnects, this innovation from Mueller Co. can be integrated with existing SCADA systems, assists with hydraulic model improvements, and supports rapid decision-making.
