Halogen Valve System's Eclipse Actuator™ closes standard chlorine and SO2 cylinder and ton container valves in less than one second when activated by leak detectors, earthquake sensors, and local or remote "panic buttons". This battery-operated actuator allows operators to shut off leaking toxic gas systems without entering the toxic atmosphere. The latest Fire Codes recognize and approve the "automatic-closing fail-safe shutoff valve" system in lieu of a scrubber treatment system.

Industrial Test Systems' DPD-1 ReagentStrip for Free Chlorine offers users a new, more convenient, delivery system for DPD. With the new system, there are no more tablets to crush, powders to spill, glass ampoule to break, or dispensers that release irritating dust. All required reagents are measured and impregnated on a test strip pad. Operators simply dip the strip into a 10ml water sample for 20 seconds with back and forth motion, remove, discard the strip, and immediately read in a chlorine meter. The testing system is compatible with a wide range of existing meters from manufacturers such as Hach, LaMotte, Orion, WTW, and others.
