Fracturing water analysis
Hach has developed a new Hydraulic Fracturing Water Analysis Kit. Offering on-site results, the easy-to-use kit is housed in a rugged, portable case. It covers key parameters critical to water analysis in oil and gas applications, including source water, fracturing fluid, flowback water, produced water, drilling fluids and enhanced oil recovery. The company’s chemists have developed, tested and published step-by-step procedures designed specifically for samples encountered in hydraulic fracturing water applications with extended concentration ranges for critical parameters.
Heise® pressure instruments provide the accuracy measurements required for critical test, calibration and process applications. The unique blend of product configurations includes the company’s 0.1% dial pressure gauge, the modular PTE-1 handheld calibrator and high accuracy digital pressure indicators and transducers. With ranges from 0.25 inches of water to 100,000 psi and accuracies to 0.025% FS, the company’s instruments provide reliable readings when measurement certainty is imperative.
Mettler Toledo Process Analytics Division has introduced the 2300Na sodium analyzer used in pure water treatment and power generation applications. The analyzer offers fully automatic, unattended calibration and reagent addition confirmation by pH to assure consistent measurement results. It can be used for grab sample measurement for additional samples and quality control checks from other areas of the plant.

ProMation Engineering P2-13 Series Quarter-Turn Electric, Non-Spring Return Actuators feature an industrial grade design for use with all ball and butterfly valves or dampers requiring higher torque outputs from 800 in. lbs. to 40,500 in. lbs. The series features a self-locking hardened steel drive train for smooth operation, mechanical end of travel stops, and patented clutch-free manual override for single-handed positioning of the actuator in any situation.
Siemens’ Industry Automation Division has launched the Sitrans LR250 radar level transmitter with a new threaded PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) antenna for liquid and slurry measurement. The antenna is designed for extreme conditions characteristic of acids, alkalis, and other corrosive chemicals: some examples include sodium hypochlorite, sodium hydroxide, and sulfuric and hydrochloric acid applications. The instrument measures ranges of up to 66 feet due to its compact 25 GHz 2-wire transmitter.

Aquanomix designs water management systems engineered to manage harvested rainwater, stormwater, graywater, process, and foundation water for reuse as cooling tower, toilet, and irrigation makeup. The company’s systems feature a controls system that performs input/output commands, runs on-board diagnostics, and integrates with most building automation systems. They come with a programmable touch screen and remote access capability via ethernet.
Fixed film treatment
Biowater’s fixed film wastewater treatment systems can reduce municipal surcharges. The systems optimize treatment configurations to help a customer’s Clean-in-place (CIP) and Clean-out-of-place (COP) systems work more efficiently and make sure compliance is achieved. The company’s MBBR/IFAS/CFAS® Combined Fixed-Film Activated Sludge treatment plant is compact and has a flexible design that can use any size tank. It is easy to retrofit and offers the option of remote monitoring.
The QuickTOC condensate is an on-line measurement system for the fast and precise determination of TOC in pure water of industrial processes. Inert materials guarantee accurate and offset-free measuring results up to 2000 ppb. The analyzer is calibrated and validated by LAR’s patented and ready-at-any-time Quick Calibration - without any contamination and downtime in contrast to liquid standards. Basis of this innovative method is the patented catalyst-free high-temperature method at 1,200°C, whereby the total carbon is oxidized completely.

Vortex shedding flowmeters
Universal Flow Monitors has announced the availability of Coolpoint™ vortex shedding flowmeters with Intrinsic Safety as an option. The flowmeters are electronic instruments that measure and monitor water flows. Unlike mechanical switches, the vortex shedding meters have no moving parts to stick or coat, eliminating potential for clogging by particles. The Intrinsic Safety feature is available on 1/4”, 3/8”, ½”, 3/4”, 1”, 1 ½” and 2”, meters.
