Turbidity standards

HF scientific recently received EPA approval for its new ProCal line of primary turbidity standards. The stable and easy to use standards will replace the Primetime standards currently used in HF scientific products. Certification for use in other manufacturers' turbidity instrumentation will follow. ProCal turbidity standards are pre-diluted, factory certified, and ready for use. The standard formulation uses a preservative that enhances stability, yet is safe and biodegrades rapidly in aquatic environments. Also offered will be the ProCheck line of sealed turbidity standards that can be used between primary calibrations to check validity of readings to determine if a primary calibration is warranted.

Automatic filter

Orival offers an automatic filter designed to remove algae from raw water or sand and grit from municipal water lines. Its new ORE/A series of filters incorporate a variety of unique features. The single-direction electric motor drive requires no limit switches or reversing contactors; thus, eliminating troublesome and expensive components. A mechanical motion transducer converts the rotational movement of the dirt collector into an oscillating linear motion without changing the direction of rotation. Self-adjusting nozzles maintain gentle contact with the screen surface maximizing the efficiency of the cleaning process while minimizing the volume of water wasted to drain during each self-cleaning cycle.
