Variable frequency drives

Schneider Electric has announced the release of Altivar® 1260, a range of medium-voltage variable frequency drives from 700 to 7,500 HP, available in 3.3-KV or 4.16-KV output voltage ratings. The flexible, high-performance drive is ideally suited for large pump, fan and compressor applications and complements Schneider's broad portfolio of bundled power solutions. Altivar 1260 is a high-technology, motor-friendly drive combining MV-IGBT topology with a straight-forward modular design. Its medium-voltage drive is an air-cooled voltage source inverter, able to be applied to both synchronous and induction AC motors.

Leak detection system

Aclara's STAR® ZoneScan is an advanced automated detection system that can pinpoint underground leaks in water mains to within just 3' by collecting and analyzing acoustic data, thus helping to speed repair and identify trouble spots. ZoneScan automates the collection, retrieval and analysis of acoustic data gathered throughout the water system, listening for and recording vibrations during quiet hours when factors affecting leak noise are minimized. It combines the strengths of leak-intelligence units with Aclara's fixed-network AMI technology that incorporates two-way communication between the utility head-end and endpoints and time-synchronized initiation of sound recordings.

Hollow fiber product line

Koch Membrane Systems has announced its PURON® MP hollow fiber product line. This ultrafiltration cartridge is designed for high-solids water and wastewater applications, including surface water treatment, reverse osmosis (RO) pretreatment and tertiary wastewater treatment. PURON MP simplifies operation, eliminates clarifier pretreatment in many applications, minimizes downtime, and reduces chemical usage to provide a lower total cost of ownership. It features an average continuous solids tolerance of up to 250 mg/L as well as an advanced cartridge design for better solids management and a virtually unbreakable reinforced hollow fiber for superior reliability.

Digital technology meters

Otek Corporation's New Technology Meters (NTM) include a digital display and an auto-tricolor bar-graph with four alarm pointers to indicate process status. They have no moving parts and are not sensitive to shock, vibration, magnetic fields, EMI/RFI, or wear and tear. The NTM-M and NTM-N are available in loop, signal or external power and are HMI/MMI compliant and DCS/SCADA/intranet compatible. They include an input failure indication that transmits a serial message with a run time stamp. The NTM's HMI compliance to NUREG0700 and MMI compatibility with isolated serial communication makes it ideal for upgrading from analog to digital.

Compact metering pumps

CHEM-FEED® C-1500N Diaphragm Metering Injector Pumps from Blue-White include an all-ball-bearing, permanently-lubricated gear motor and double-ball-inlet and outlet-cartridge-style ceramic check valves. The valve body and fittings are constructed of chemical-resistant PVDF, and the valves have FKM static seals and TFE/P ball-seat O-rings. Standard units feature quick-adjusting and high-accuracy mechanical stroke length control. The efficient design allows for a minimum stroke length of 5%. Deluxe units feature stroke length and electronic time interval control, adjustable from 5 to 100% of the repeating five-second time interval (0.25-5.0).

Lining system

Sauereisen's SewerSeal F-170 is a calcium-aluminate-filled lining system that prevents water infiltration into municipal collection systems, ultimately reducing the amount of sewage to treat. The SewerSeal's versatility allows for use in manholes and lift stations regardless of the type of substrate -- concrete, brick or steel. The F-170 may also be spin-cast from ground level, minimizing downtime and improving safety by preventing confined space entry.

Water level datalogging

The Levelogger Edge from Solinst records water level and temperature. Up to 120,000 data sets can be saved using compressed linear sampling. It features accurate temperature compensation; quick thermal response times; accuracy of 0.05% FS; corrosion-resistant, titanium-based PVD coating; and a Hastelloy pressure sensor that can withstand two times over-pressure without permanent damage.
