The HyBlend HM series liquid polymer activation technology, available from EnPro Technologies, is a hybrid, combining the reliability of non-mechanical blending with the control and versatility of mechanical blending. The technology addresses the shortcomings of non-mechanical blending by eliminating the reliance on water pressure, the ability to control mixing intensity, and the ability to effectively activate polymer at very low flow rates. The technology delivers the reliability of non-mechanical blending while preventing polymer damage due to excessive mixing energy. The system is ideal for the full range of polymer applications found in water, wastewater and industrial processes. These applications include clarifiers, filters, sludge thickeners, sludge dewatering and sludge drying.

Rotork has announced an Ethernet upgrade for its Pakscan valve actuator control subsystem. The retrofitable upgrade provides the benefits of Ethernet connectivity with an industrially designed, single-fault-tolerant field digital network. Standard features of the Ethernet upgrade include an embedded Web server; Modbus TCP support for integration into process monitoring and control systems; plug-and-play field connectivity for up to 240 valve actuators on a loop up to 10 miles long; and single-fault tolerance, which provides security for such network disturbances as open circuits, short circuits, and ground faults. When a fault is present, the subsystem automatically isolates the faulty section of network cable and reroutes communication to all devices without process disruptions. Status, alarm, and diagnostic information is available to the user via a preconfigured graphical embedded web server. No custom programming is required, and all information is available from any browser on the user's LAN.

TISCOR has released TourWatch XT, the newest version of its software used by facilities to streamline security-related documentation. The new application is now available for use with Palm Pilots, which opens up an array of options to users. Once used with scanning devices to scan barcodes at specific locations and document the presence of security personnel at inspection points, the new Palm-enabled system helps inspectors document detailed information about their checks through manual entries onto the Palm or by choosing options from pick lists on the hand-held. The inspections are then time-and-date stamped by the system, providing indisputable proof that the checks occurred.
