The System 1020FT In-Line Transit-Time Flowmeter from Controlotron is ideally suited for low velocity, small line applications. A non-wetted transducer design, constructed of CPVC or Kynar tube material, allows it to be used on even the most aggressive chemical applications. It accurately measures flow rates as low as 1 gph. Almost any liquid can be measured, from water to a diverse range of process liquids and chemicals such as fluoride, polymers, acids, sodium hypochlorite, sodium hydroxide, alum, potassium permanganate, etc. Single and multi-channel models are available. The meter can also be programmed to allow operation with clamp-on transducers, as well as low-flow flow tubes.

They feature low shear, contamination-free pumping and predictable pump service intervals, extending validation periods.
Industrial metering pumps
Hydra-Cell Industrial Pumps, Wanner Engineering Inc., introduces H25 Metering Series Industrial Pumps. The hydraulically balanced diaphragm pumps are engineered to pump some of toughest solutions imaginable at up to 1200 gpm, while providing ±1% steady state accuracy with 10:1 turndown ratio, at fraction of the cost of conventional precision metering pumps. The pumps operates smoothly and quietly while requiring less horsepower than most pumps of comparable size and capabilities. They can operate at 1,000 psi, but can also meter with the same accuracy at 50 psi.

Ultra-capacity control valve
The Flowserve Mark 100 globe control valve delivers higher capacity in a smaller valve than similar conventional valves in sizes 6"-16" and pressure classes 150-600 psi. A wide, streamlined gallery increases capacity an average of 15% over competing valves (e.g., tested capacity for 10" Mark 100 comparable to catalog capacity of others' 12" valves). Available with a full range of noise and cavitation reduction severe service trims, the valve is applicable to a range of industries: chemical manufacturing, oil & gas production, and power generation.
Flowserve Corp., Flow Control Division
Scientific Technologies, Automation Products Group, introduces the DVF-320 Depth Velocity Flow Transmitter. The system uses a 4-20 mA signal to provide long-term monitoring and transmission of flow rate, and includes four programmable outputs to provide liquid level, velocity and flow metering. It features a sealed design and isolated outputs to reduce site visits. The unit also comes with an IP65 housing with hinged sealing cover to protect LCD display. A datalogging function stores multiple readings.

The Leopold elimi-NITE™ Denitrification System uses the advantages of deep bed, mono-media filters to effectively remove nitrogen in wastewater effluent. In addition to nitrogen, the system can simultaneously remove suspended solids. The gravity, downflow, packed-bed denitrification system is an attached growth, microbiological process which removes nitrate-nitrogen achieving levels below 1 mg/liter. Physically, it is identical to a deep-bed downflow sand filter with Leopold® Type S® Dual Parallel Lateral Underdrain and silica media.

Process monitor, control
Dissolved oxygen and suspended solids are two of the most important controllable parameters in any biological reactor. Stabilizing these two parameters will reduce operation costs and enhance process performance. Insite Instrumentation Group's Model 2000 will make both of these crucial measurements. The dissolved oxygen sensor is an optical design that eliminates the need for replaceable membranes, sensor caps, cartridges, and fill solutions.
Krohne has introduced its new Optiflux family of electromagnetic flowmeters. The family consists of nine flowmeter models covering a wide range of applications in the water and wastewater, chemical, pulp and paper, and pharmaceutical industries. All models feature unique 3 x 100% diagnostics: 100% Application Diagnostics, 100% Accuracy Diagnostics, and 100% Instrument Diagnostics. Consequently, maintenance engineers not only have information on the state of the flowmeter and the quality of the measurement, they will also obtain notification of unnoticed application faults.
Sludge level, turbidity
BinMinder 9300-ETS, available from Entech Design, combines ultrasonic sludge level and 90° scattered light turbidity measurements in a dual sensor analyzer. Sludge level measurement in clarifiers and thickeners supports operator efforts to maximize underflow density while minimizing solids discharge in the process effluent. Effluent turbidity assists operators with chemical application and provides early indication of process upset that could lead to avoidable regulatory penalties. The dual purpose sensor is located near the surface and close to the effluent weir – the ideal point to maximize both measurements. Instruments are available in single or multi-channel configurations.

Other options include single or dual transmitter excitation supplies and software for remote viewing and data logging.
Wireless remote monitoring
American Innovations (AI) offers a new addition to its Bullhorn® family of wireless remote monitoring products: the APM4AM-SAT. The monitoring system uses the Inmarsat D+ satellite system for communication and is an excellent way to supplement installations where 100% cellular coverage is not available. It is ideal for international use and enables equipment monitoring in very remote locations. The system monitors many different kinds of equipment and provides automatic notifications of alarm events via voice notification, fax, page and/or email.
Event monitor trigger system
For industries proactively managing water networks, the new Event Monitor™ Trigger System from Hach Company maximizes value for continuous, remote water quality surveillance. System receives measurements from multiple sensors of Hach's Water Distribution Monitoring Panel (WDMP) or PipeSonde™ In-Pipe Probe and the astroTOC UV On-Line TOC Analyzer and relates all measurements as a single, real-time trigger signal indicating distribution system water quality changes. By 'learning' sensor measurement combinations detected by the trigger signal and storing them in its internal plant event library, the Event Monitor system can recognize recurring network events immediately and alert operating personnel – differentiating baseline data changes of transient events such as flushing or source water change from those due to abnormal events such as equipment failure, pre-nitrification, or unknown contamination.
Designed with a thermal flow sensing element combined with an optimized feature set, the new ST50 Flowmeter from Fluid Components International (FCI) provides flow measurement of air, compressed air and nitrogen gas in line sizes from 2-12" in many common applications.
