Controlotron’s System 1020 offers flow-measurement at a much lower cost than other clamp-on non-intrusive ultrasonic flowmeters, with flow rate accuracy of 1% or better for most applications. Easy to install and maintain, it offers a lower total cost of ownership than any other type of flowmeter, including magmeters, vortex and Coriolis meters.
Pressure Systems has introduced the non-fouling submersible Series 750 KPSI level transducer with static accuracy to + 0.25% FS. The transducers are designed for use in adverse conditions including highly viscous wastewater environments. Applications include lift stations, storage tanks, level control, and pump control.

The Model SST Submersible Level Transmitter from Ametek PMT Products is designed to fit into tight applications, while providing the same digitally compensated level measurement capability as the company’s other products. The transmitter’s 0.69 inch diameter housing allows the unit to fit small-bore applications, while it’s 316 stainless steel diaphragm construction offers environmental protection.

Water meter monitor
The Orion Water Meter Monitor from Badger Meter is a remote receiver with display that allows consumers to monitor the use of water during two separate consumer-defined time intervals. For example, one interval could be the current month or billing cycle, the other might be one day in which a lawn is being watered.

Peristaltic metering injector
Blue-White’s Flexflo A-100NV Variable Speed Peristaltic Metering Injector is now offered with an optional Micro-Flow FVS (Flow Verification Sensor). With this option installed, the pump’s electronics will continuously monitor the Micro-Flow FVS to ensure chemical injection. If chemical should fail to inject, the pump will stop and an alarm relay will close allowing for remote alarm indication or initiation of a backup pump.

Coriolis mass flowmeters
Cole-Parmer has entered into an agreement with Krohne to distribute its line of coriolis mass flowmeters. The meters provide measurements for mass flow, density, and temperature in the drinking water or wastewater setting, with a flow rate accuracy of ±0.1% for liquids.

The new Eagle Microsystems USL-1000 Ultrasonic Level System consists of an ultrasonic transducer and an EI-2000 dual channel digital display instrument. The instrument permits simultaneous measurement and display of bulk storage tank level or volume, and accurate weighment and display of the weight of a day tank or batch tank through the use of an electronic scale.

George Fischer has introduced the Signet 2551 Magmeter, an insertion style electro-magnetic flow sensor especially intended for conductive fluid applications that contain particles, solids and fibers. Designed with no moving parts to wear or foul, this new flow sensor virtually eliminates maintenance and its associated costs. Typical applications include flow monitoring in a wide range of industries such as water and waste treatment. It’s ideal as a replacement for paddlewheel sensors in dirty applications and fits into the same fittings as a retrofit.

Flow, level sensor
The Hach Sigma AV Flow and Level sensor is a robust sensor developed to withstand harsh environments typical of collection systems. The sensor provides strong, clean velocity signals across a wide range of flow situations. Large acoustic crystals provide strong echo signals and an improved pressure transducer provides better level performance. The shape of the probe minimizes flow disturbance.
Temperature, process controllers
Kaif Digital’s wMPC Series controllers offer up to seven zone controllers in a single wall mount package. The controllers accommodate a universal range of temperature and process inputs. Input type is individually configurable for each zone from the keypad. Thus, a single unit can accommodate multiple sensor types (temperature, pressure, velocity, flow, volume, etc.) at the same time. Scaling and offset of current and voltage signals is user-programmable.
Krohne has introduced the new GS 8 B calibrated flow simulator. Replacing the meter flow tube, it provides calibrated feedback to the electromagnetic meter converter, simulating specific calibrated flow conditions. The portable device allows users to verify the company’s flowmeter converters.
Gas mass flowmeter
Kurz has introduced the Series 534FT In-Line Thermal Mass Flow Transmitters, which feature built-in inlet/outlet piping reducers/expanders and immunity to upstream/downstream flow disturbances caused by elbows, valves and line size changes. The design eliminates the need for field fabrication and assembly of inlet and outlet mating pipe sizes. Each model offers a choice of three line sizes to meet nearly all applications.

The patented First Flush Valve for Stormwater Metering, available from Red Valve, is designed to control the “first flush” of a rainstorm. The bottom portion of the FFV has a mouth type opening which permits low flow under normal conditions, as well as functioning as a clean-out port for accumulation on the bottom of the line. The second zone is designed as a holding area for the heavy “first flush” downpour, while the stormwater line serves as a storage tank.

Siemens Energy & Automation has announced the Sitrans LR 200 radar level transmitter is now available with PROFIBUS PA, a protocol specifically tailored for the needs of the process industry. Using PROFIBUS PA enables substantial cost saving potential, facilitates easier engineering and maintenance, as well as provides diagnostic and maintenance information for plant optimization.

The Hexacon Model II control system closes up to six Eclipse actuators on toxic gas cylinder and ton container valves when activated by panic buttons or remote gas sensors. The newly designed system applies 30 foot-pounds of torque for test closures and 50 foot-pounds of torque for emergency closures of the cylinder valve.

Eurotherm has announced the support of 18 universal input channels in the Eurotherm Chessell 5100V Data Acquisition Unit. With support for an additional six inputs, the 5100V can now display, and archive data from 18 analog inputs, plus 78 inputs via a communications network, for a total of 96 inputs.
Bristol Babcock’s Series 2808 is a high performance pressure transmitter which features very low power consumption. It is compatible with many of today’s RTU devices, which can read voltage inputs as well as 4-20 mA current signals. Use of the 1-5 vDC output conserves power and allows the transmitter to operate using only 2 mA at a supply voltage as low as 6 vDC.

Float level switch
K-TEK’s MS50 float level switch is priced up to 25% less than competitive models and designed to handle a wide range of applications, including sump level control, alarms, and shutdowns. Each switch features application-specific float designs that optimize performance in the fluid being measured.
