ATI has developed a new approach to on-line monitoring of ammonia that is less expensive and simpler than conventional monitoring equipment. The Q45N Dissolved Ammonia Monitor uses reaction chemistry that converts ammonia in solution to a stable monochloramine compound equivalent in concentration to the original ammonia level. The chloramine concentration is then measured with a unique amperometric sensor that responds linearly to chloramines while eliminating interference from excess free chlorine in solution.

AMR digital register
The new innov8 universal register from Transparent Technologies can add years of service to existing water meters while extending low flow accuracy beyond new meter specifications. The register can be installed on most brands of water meters and by eliminating the magnetic drag in typical encoded register designs, brings water meters back to life. The register includes the company’s m2 two-way AMR radio that monitors and stores 32,000 data points in intervals as low as 1 minute.
CertainTeed Certa-Lok™ C900/RJ PVC Pipe is designed for use in directional drilling and other restrained joint applications. It requires no special heat-fusion equipment, saving contractors a significant amount of time and money. Its joints are assembled as the pullback continues, so streets remain open and clear. And compared to alternate thermoplastic materials, higher-strength PVC requires a much thinner wall in order to achieve the same pressure rating. Because of this, a smaller diameter of PVC pipe can often be used.
