Universal Flow Monitors has introduced larger sizes of its CoolPoint™ vortex shedding flowmeter for measuring and monitoring higher water flows. Applications include dilution water and similar water treatment processes as well as wastewater processes such as polymer mixing with water, seal water to pumps, and secondary water for chemical dilution and mixing. The meter is now offered in two new pipe sizes: 3", which provides a flow rate of 300 gpm, and 4", with a flow rate of 600 gpm. The line already includes pipe sizes ranging from ¼" to 2", providing flow rates ranging from .4 gpm to 200 gpm. The flowmeters are designed to provide consistent flows. Repeatability is ±1 percent of actual flow, and accuracy is ±2 percent of actual flow.

The Solfrunt® Model 1981 Advantage from Ametek US Gauge provides users with a dampened movement option that has many of the benefits of a liquid-filled gauge without the need to periodically fill or replace the liquid. The gauge incorporates a self-contained movement dampening capsule that minimizes the effects of shock and vibration in demanding applications. Both the Model 1981 Advantage and the Model 1981, which is available both dry and liquid-filled, are 4 ½" process pressure gauges with all 316L stainless steel wetted surfaces and a seamless bourdon tube design. Both models have a PET turret-style case that provides impact strength and are supplied in pressure ranges from 30-inches hg vacuum through 11,600 psi.
