Analytical Technology’s Q45H Residual Chlorine Monitor is available in two versions, a free chlorine monitor for potable water and a combined chlorine monitor ideally suited for chloraminated water.
Analytical Technology’s Q45H Residual Chlorine Monitor is available in two versions, a free chlorine monitor for potable water and a combined chlorine monitor ideally suited for chloraminated water. The monitor measures chlorine directly and does not require the addition of chemical reagents, so there are no moving parts that need to be maintained. The chlorine measurement does not alter the sample, so the water flow can return to the system, if desired. Using the optional pH sensor, the monitor will automatically correct for changes in process pH, maintaining an accurate free chlorine measurement.

Pump control valves
OCV Control Valves manufactures a variety of pump control valves and designed its Series 125 specifically to eliminate surges associated with starting and stopping a pump. Smooth discharge and volume are produced by electrically interfacing the valve with a pump motor that opens and closes the system at an adjustable speed. The valve has a built-in flow check feature to prevent back flow and automatically shuts the pump motor off on loss of pump discharge pressure. The rectangular-shaped, soft seat seal provides drip-tight Class VI closure while the throttling seat retainer generates flow and pressure stability. The 125 is equipped with a replaceable seat ring, alignment pins for proper reassembly after maintenance and can be serviced without removal from the line.

Emergency valve shut-off
Eclipse Actuators close toxic gas valves on 150 lb. and ton cylinders in less than one second when activated by remote sensors. These electronic actuators are “close only devices” requiring an operator to visit the site to determine the cause of the problem. The operator can then correct the condition, check the facility, and then manually reset the valve before restarting the gas system. The Eclipse is a battery-operated actuator and allows an operator or remote gas sensor to shut off leaking toxic gas without requiring the operator to enter the hazardous atmosphere.
Halogen Valve Systems
The Pratt Triton Butterfly Valve has a rubber seat located in the body that reduces performance problems related to corrosive buildup in the valve body and pipeline.
