Smart flowmeter update
Endress+Hauser has updated its Proline 300 smart Coriolis and electromagnetic flowmeters. Their compact hygienic 316L stainless-steel housings are robust and optimised for highest reliability. Additionally, they have been designed to support an optional IP69 ingress protection rating, impervious to water ingress from high pressure wash-down. The sensors are designed according to ASME BPE, EHEDG and 3A standards, and provide full GMP compliance for sterile processes. They offer seamless integration into applications through a wide range of digital conductivity protocols including EtherNet/IP. Proline Promag 300 flowmeters are available in two models in sizes from 1/12 to 24 inches for volume flows up to 42,000 gallons per minute.
Free membrane design software
The DOW WAVE Design Software integrates three technologies – ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis and ion exchange – into one comprehensive tool using a common interface. It simplifies the multi-technology design process and ultimately helps reduce the time it takes to design water treatment systems. WAVE upgrades the best features of Dow’s older software, ROSA, UFLOW, IXCALC and CADIX, while bridging the technologies together under one common, user friendly and time saving interface. It is the new Dow software for estimating performance of UF, RO and IX technologies in water treatment systems, either individually or in various combinations. WAVE is free to download and available in three languages: English, Chinese, Spanish and Portuguese. https://dowwater.custhelp.com/app/software/wave
HWM has launched the DXmic, a new ground microphone offering touchscreen operation with a microphone to enable accurate location of leaks on-site. The colour touchscreen is easy to operate and has multiple signal, memory and frequency displays. Digital features include auto-filtering and frequency analysis. Battery life ranges from 15 to 25 hours. www.hwmglobal.com
AMI system launch from Kamstrup
Kamstrup Water Metering has launched an automated metering infrastructure system. Called Kamstrup AMI, it supplies hourly consumption data and analytics to water utilities. The communication unit is housed inside the meter. This eliminates the risk of disconnected wires and unplanned maintenance costs down the road. With frequent data from an automated meter infrastructure, utilities are able to detect leaks in the water distribution network by making daily water balances and breaking down the volume of water that leaves the utility into smaller parts and comparing that with the actual consumption. www.kamstrup.com
