Liquid fill and PLUS! Performance™ are also available to dampen potential pointer bounce caused by vibration and pulsation. The Ashcroft® 2008S is ideal for monitoring pressures in a wide variety of installations, including oil and gas control panels.
Chemineer is offering the Kenics® UltraTab™ static mixer designed for turbulent flow applications where a high degree of mixing is required in a compact space. The Kenics UltraTab provides a combination of advantages, from its compact installation space requirement to its complete blending in short distances downstream of the mixer and low pressure drop through the mixing element. Compact design and short mixing length minimizes pipe lengths and optimizes the efficiency of the plant layout, and low pressure drop through the UltraTab element enhances process energy efficiency and saves pump energy. Sizes range from 2" to 60"+.

Water quality probes
In-Situ® Inc. announced two new water quality handheld probes for the environmental market. Environmental professionals can use the new smarTROLL™ Handheld Instruments to spot-check natural surface waters and effluent waters and to conduct groundwater quality sampling. The unique iSitu™ App, designed to run on iPhone®, iPod touch® or iPad®, makes it easy for users to email data instantly to their contacts, tag sites with photos and GPS coordinates, quickly calibrate sensors, and log data to their smartphones. By using readily-available smartphone technology instead of proprietary meters, environmental professionals reduce their overall cost of ownership. In-Situ's water quality sensors are extremely durable, hold calibrations for long periods of time and require minimal maintenance. For example, In-Situ's optical dissolved oxygen sensor (RDO® Sensor) withstands daily use, requires infrequent calibration and uses EPA- approved methods. NPDES permit holders can use both probes for reporting purposes.

Drinking water flushing
Innovyze announced Generation V10 of InfoWater UDF, its geocentric solution for unidirectional flushing of drinking water distribution systems. By removing stagnant water along with mineral and sediment deposits that accumulate over time, the process effectively restores hydraulic capacity and improves water quality. InfoWater UDF can help utilities improve water quality by restoring the disinfectant residual, reducing bacterial regrowth, dislodging biofilms, removing sediments and deposits, controlling corrosion, restoring flows and pressures, eliminating taste and odor problems, and reducing disinfectant demand throughout the system. These benefits prolong the life expectancy of the distribution system as they reduce the potential for waterborne disease outbreaks.
Gas shutoff system
The new Hexacon Model III control system from Halogen has an optional programmable relay interface module and SCADA informational output to provide active and timely notifications. The new optional second battery provides for quicker and more reliable valve closures. The microprocessor system applies a torque of 30 foot-pounds or 50 foot-pounds for test or emergency valve closures for up to six-cylinder and ton-container valves. With a SCADA option, the system provides actuator closure status and error codes to quickly analyze problems and to take corrective action.
