Collection of new products of special interest to the municipal water and wastewater markets.
Submersible electric mixer
The new GridBee® GS-9 submersible electric mixer from Medora Corporation, designed for potable water storage tanks up to 1 million gallons (MG) (3 MG in moderate climates) and priced under $5,000, helps smaller municipalities meet potable water quality standards at an affordable cost. The GridBee GS-9 electric mixer thoroughly mixes potable water storage tanks, providing uniform water age and disinfectant distribution while eliminating stagnation and short-circuiting.

The DR1900 portable spectrophotometer from Hach is built for rugged conditions, and it is flexible, accepting the widest range of vial sizes. Built with field use in mind, the DR1900 has a large, clear screen and a simple user interface that makes testing easy in even the most demanding conditions. Easy to hold and operate, the compact DR1900 is a valuable tool for field technicians. Tests are performed with a wavelength range of 340 to 800 nm, which makes this a field instrument that finds results typically only seen in laboratory instruments.
Val-Matic's Ener•G® Rubber Seated Ball Valve is ideal for surge control and energy savings in municipal water and wastewater. The valve's self-flushing contoured ball design fully complies with AWWA C507. It features the advantages of a standard two-piece design with a fusion-bonded epoxy interior and exterior coating and a bidirectional resilient Tri-Loc™ Seating System, which provides a low-friction, wear-resistant seat and allows easy adjustment or replacement without removing the valve from the line.

Isolation pipe ring
Keep your pressure instruments safe from clogging by installing an Ashcroft® Type 80 or 81 isolation ring in your pipeline. With the process medium contacting only the flexible inside wall of the isolator, the pressure is translated through a liquid fill to the sensing device atop the ring. To dampen the effects of pulsation, a needle valve can be incorporated, while the exclusive Safe Quick Release™ (SQR) option will permit the harmless, leak-free removal of the instrument for calibration or maintenance while the system is still under pressure.
Phoenix Contact has added 10 new devices to the UNO Power supply family, a range of low-cost, high-quality power supplies. The power supplies offer excellent energy savings, achieved through low idling losses of below 0.3 W and operating at up to 90 percent efficiency. Further, they cover output voltages from 5 to 48 V DC and are available in 25, 30, 40, 55, 60, 90, and 100 W versions. They measure 90 mm high by 84 mm deep and come in three different widths: 22.5, 35 and 55 mm. Outdoor use is possible thanks to a wide temperature range of -25˚C to +70˚C.
Dissolved oxygen system
Analytical Technology's Q46D Dissolved Oxygen System with Q-Blast Sensor cleaner provides reliable dissolved oxygen (DO) measurement using either optical or membrane sensors. The Q-Blast DO System is ideal for aeration control systems, resulting in improved process performance and energy savings. Installation is simple and maintenance is low.
