Collection of new products of special interest to the municipal water and wastewater markets.
Lift station control
SJE-Rhombus® has introduced the 331 Lift Station Control Panel. The panel is a versatile solution for standard duplex applications; it covers three phase (up to 32 amps each) and three voltages (208, 240, or 480V) with one panel. It is pre-engineered to simply "fit and click" the appropriate overload module into the starter for operation. Available in stainless steel or fiberglass wall mount enclosure, each 331 panel features single-point power connection; IEC HP rated motor starter with adjustable overload module; and pump short circuit disconnect and overload reset accessible through the inner door.
Corzan® Industrial Systems from Lubrizol Corp. tackle even the toughest water treatment piping challenges with superior mechanical strength and high impact resistance. Made from chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC), the pipe and fittings are resistant to the degrading effects of chemicals, microorganisms and UV light.
Ultrasonic flow meter
The PTFM 1.0 Portable Transit Time Flow Meter from Greyline is designed to accurately measure clean liquids like water, oils and chemicals. It can be used for calibrations, troubleshooting, spot checks and balancing flow. Setup through the handheld meter is fast with a 5-key menu system. The clamp-on transducers mount on plastic or metal pipes and ultrasonic signals are injected through the pipe between the two sensors.
Greyline Instruments Inc.
Hayward Flow Control has launched its new FLV Series Bag Filters. The new filters feature a one-piece injection molded platinum GF PP (Glass Filled Polypropylene) body in sizes 1 (16") and 2 (32"). Unlike traditional metal and plastic filters, the series offers a true-union design for multiple end connections and sizes as well as quick installation or removal.

Vortex pump head
A new SGV Vortex Pump Head for Vanton Sump-Gard® vertical thermoplastic pumps handles fluids and slurries containing stringy materials or solids to 2" in diameter. Solid thermoplastic construction of all wetted components allows corrosion-free, abrasion-resistant handling of acids, caustics and a wide range of solids-laden wastes at temperatures to 275°F.
Vanton Pump & Equipment Corp.
Badger Meter's E-Series Ultrasonic Meters deliver long-term, accurate meter reading for utilities. Designed specifically for water metering applications, the meters use ultrasonic transit time technology to calculate flow rate and total consumption. The E-Series is constructed with no moving parts, greatly improving accuracy and reliability by eliminating the mechanical wear that can reduce accuracy over the life of the meter.
Pipe flow monitoring
Flow Pulse from Pulsar Process Measurement is a compact pipe flow monitor suited for monitoring flow rates in fluid distribution systems, for pump efficiency, in process plants or sewage pumping stations. Users simply clamp a small sensor to the outside of a pipe and immediately get a repeatable flow measurement. Ultrasound is fired through the pipe wall then reflected from bubbles, particles and vortices in all directions and at a wide range of frequencies.
