Collection of new products of special interest to the industrial water and wastewater markets.
Cooling products for corrosive environments
Many of Technical Systems’ products, including air-cooled condensing units, chillers, fluid coolers, remote condensers, pumping packages and pumping skids, are available in corrosion-resistant designs that are suitable for use in coastal manufacturing, comfort, and process-cooling environments. They are also ideal for inland applications utilizing corrosive chemicals, such as poultry processing, animal byproduct production, and water treatment plants. Products may be built with 316 stainless steel, copper piping, and specially coated cooling coils. For especially corrosive environments, TSI offers passivation and electropolishing of stainless steel materials to further increase corrosion resistance.

Paddle flow switch
The FSW-160 is the latest heavy-duty paddle flow switch from OMEGA. The switch is used to signal, start, or stop electronically operated equipment when flow or no-flow conditions occur. OMEGA’s elastomeric sealing system is superior to the metal bellows that are subject to metal fatigue and corrosion. This seal system has been field-proven for over a decade. The NEMA 1 (IP10) enclosure and stainless steel paddle and shaft provide a solid design for reliable monitoring of flow switching applications such as automotive, manufacturing, chemical processing, HVAC, water and wastewater.
Low flow pump
Vertiflo Pump Company’s Model 1400LF “Low Flow” is used for a wide range of applications including boiler feed, condensate, chemical process, washdown and spray washers. Capacities to 50 GPM, heads to 345 feet TDH, and temperature to 250°F. Back pull-out construction allows for easy inspection or service/ maintenance without disturbing the piping to the pump. Radial vane impeller has external impeller adjustment. Packing or various mechanical seal arrangements are available as standard options. Construction material selection includes ductile iron, bronze fitted, 316 stainless steel fitted and all 316 stainless steel.

The new Series KTV7 Multi-Motor Controllers are self-protected combination motor controllers, ideal for use with variable frequency drives (VFDs) in multi-motor installations for various industries. Designed for use with VFDs that have an output frequency of 400 Hz or less, the new KTV7 series provides the disconnect function for motor branch circuits, branch-circuit short-circuit protection, and manual switching. KTV7s are current-limiting devices with a fixed magnetic trip, and interruption ratings are available up to 65K AIC at 400 V and 480 V. The KTV7 controllers provide motor overload protection with a trip class 10 thermal characteristic.

PureTech Systems and SpotterRF have created the C20B radar, which provides detection out to 120 m. Targets can be displayed and updated through the PureActiv map-based video management user display and the sharing of position data to allow advanced autonomous sensor control, such as the ability to steer a camera to the exact point of intrusion and the subsequent hands-free tracking of the intruder using a pan-tilt-zoom camera. The technology provides for increased situation awareness to the user, enabling the viewing, management and track merging of various target types (radar, video, GPS, etc.) through a central user interface.
Proportional poppet valve
The proportional poppet valve for descaling applications from Hunt Valve lasts three to five times longer than traditional poppet valves. By eliminating the effects of water hammer and system shock, this valve technology promotes safety in the plant and cuts operating costs in half. The proportional poppet descale valve incorporates Hunt Valve’s patented balance chamber design feature, and offers proximity switches or linear variable differential transformer (LVDT) position feedback for constant monitoring of the valve’s position. It has a pressure rating of 5,000 psi (320 bar) and is available in sizes DIN 10 to 250 (0.5” to 10” in diameter).
