Sixteen different sizes are available for most pipe sizes with diameters ranging from ½” to 120”. Advance Products & Systems,www.apsonline.com

Chemical piping

Asahi/America has introduced Chem Proline®, a new crack resistant polyethylene piping system designed forPennwell web 200 100 the harshest liquid chemical applications. Made from the latest generation of PE resin (PE100-RC), the pipe and fittings possess the greatest resistance to “slow crack growth.” They are a lower cost alternative to metal, fiberglass reinforced plastic pipe and lined steel pipe. The line offers a complete system that includes pipe, fittings, valves, leak detection, injection quills and chemical feed skids. Asahi/America Inc., www.asahi-america.com

Colorimetric online analyzerPennwell web 100 148

The new CA-6 Colorimetric Online Analyzer from Electro-Chemical Devices performs colorimetric or Ion Selective Electrode (ISE) based laboratory analyses accurately and reliably. Its online sequential sampling analyzer weighs less than 40 lbs. and can be wall mounted or set on a bench. Simply connect the sample, waste and reagent lines to the analyzer and provide power, and the CA-6 will begin its preprogrammed analysis sequence. The analyzer is available with up to four channels each from a separate sample point. Electro-Chemical Devices,www.ecdi.com

Gas shutoff systemPennwell web 100 125

The Halogen Valve Duplex Model II control system quickly closes up to two Eclipse™ actuators on toxic gas cylinder and ton container valves when activated by panic buttons or remote gas sensors. The system applies 30 foot-pounds of torque for test closures and 50 foot-pounds of torque for emergency closures of the cylinder valve. Halogen Valve Systems,www.halogenvalve.com

Valve actuators

Promation Engineering PA/O-PD/O Quarter-Turn Electric Spring Return Actuators feature a robust, industrial design for use with all ball and butterfly valves or dampers. They feature a hardened steel gear train for smooth operation, and are available with or without a patented, clutch-free manual handwheel for positioning of the actuator in any situation. They are also available in either clockwise (CW) or counter clockwise (CCW) failsafe positioning. Available in on/off or proportional control models, the actuator’s standard features include an integrated position indicator, two auxiliary switches (rated at 3A 250V Max), an internal low-power, anti-condensation heater, patented hydraulic damper to prevent point-of-closure shock to valve dampers, and a cast aluminum polymer coated housing that is rated NEMA 4X for safe exposure to high pressure hosing and corrosion resistance.Promation Engineering Inc., www.promationei.com

Cartridge filtersPennwell web 180 90

W. L. Gore & Associates is offering a new family of cartridge filters that improve water quality and reduce total cost of filtration for ultrapure water (UPW) and de-ionized (DI) water used in the manufacture of semiconductors and silicon wafers. Gore has used its expertise in ePTFE materials and membrane technology to engineer a family of filters that offer 3x the flow rate of best-in-class filters without sacrificing particle retention, and that can be easily substituted for filters in the field that no longer meet performance or cost requirements.
