Progressive cavity pump
seepex has introduced the food-grade BWC Progressive Cavity Pump. It bridges the gap between positive displacement sanitary pumps (low flow & high pressure) and centrifugal pumps (high flow & low pressure) by uniting the best of both designs into one compact package capable of a controlled flow rate of 45 gpm and a maximum pressure of 60 psi. This new pump design is comprised of very few components, simplifying maintenance and reducing the overall cleaning period. The pumps can convey liquids containing suspended solids and slurries that are up to 40,000 centipoise in viscosity.
To prevent failures and maximize efficiency, Ashcroft is offering a free check-up of pressure and temperature instrumentation. The company's experts will audit your installation and look for misapplied or malfunctioning gauges, transmitters, switches, thermometers and more.
Sliding vane pumps
Blackmer® will display its Sliding Vane Pumps and System One® centrifugal pumps at ACHEMA 2012, a chemical processing trade to be held June 18-22, in Frankfurt, Germany. The company's sliding vane are available in compatible materials with shaft sealing options that make them the ideal for many dangerous chemical applications. NP Series pumps are available in five sizes, with port sizes from 1.5" to 4". They feature flow rates from 5 to 500 gpm at operating temperatures up to 500°F, with an optional jacketed pump head for high-temperature operating atmospheres.
In 2005, Marseal waterproofing and corrosion resistant lining was selected to rehabilitate a Leachate Water Treatment Facility in Orlando, FL. Two concrete tanks had developed cracks in their floors and walls, resulting in leakage. The material, Marseal 4000 is a 90-mil, peel and stick system. The unique properties of the flexible sheet membranes combined with thermally welded seam construction provide security in primary and secondary containment.
Flojet®, a Xylem brand, has released the new Flojet LF Plus series of low flow industrial motor driven diaphragm pumps. The line of compact pumps features a new design that reduces diaphragm cleaning time by up to 40 percent and weighs just 20 ounces. The pumps are versatile for multiple applications extending throughout the industrial, agricultural, automotive, and food processing industries. The pumps attain operating pressures of up to 40 psi, have self-priming capabilities up to six feet, and dependable run dry capabilities. The pumps are offered now in both 12 and 24-volt models, with a 115-volt model coming soon.

SJE-Rhombus® has introduced a new, data logging control panel. The EZ Series® In-Site® CL control panel is designed to connect to a laptop computer for system programming, monitoring and reporting. The panel is designed to control one or two 120/208/240V single phase pump(s) in water and sewage installations. It features a Modbus Port located on the inside door to connect to a Windows®-based PC to download system events which have occurred, including pump run times, pump cycles, alarm conditions, HOA settings, power outages, and service calls.
Wafer-cone flow meter
McCrometer's Wafer-Cone® Flow Meter is now available with a new direct mount configuration that minimizes installation labor while ensuring accuracy. Direct mounting the transmitter eliminates impulse lines, which not only lowers installation costs but also reduces potential leak points by more than 50 percent. Simple plug-and-play mounting ensures the meter is installed correctly the first time and eliminates a potential source of flow measurement errors.
Mettler Toledo Process Analytics Division has introduced its 5000TOCi sensor with Intelligent Sensor Management™ (ISM).

Vortex shedding flowmeters
Universal Flow Monitors has developed seven new Battery-Powered CoolPoint™ Vortex Shedding flowmeters for water and low viscosity fluids. Designed for situations where there is no power located nearby or in which it would be cost prohibitive to wire the monitoring station, the Battery-Powered CoolPoint™ runs on 3 AA alkaline batteries or lithium batteries. The expected battery life is six months with the alkaline batteries or two years with lithium. The flowmeters have no moving parts to wear or clog. They will indicate flow rate or total on an LCD screen.
