Sensaphone has introduced a new web-based status and data-logging tool - the My StationSitter Web Service - available with the StationSitter Remote Monitoring and Alarm Notification System. The web service collects data from monitored locations and, at a predetermined time, automatically uploads the information to a secure web site. That site can then be accessed via the Internet, allowing users to track historical data and alarm responses. Designed exclusively for the water and wastewater industries, the automatic web page includes features like automatic input configuration, integrated pump control, and user acknowledgement alarm tracking.
Severn Trent Services has introduced an addition to its line of SmartMeter fluidic oscillation water meters. The new SM700 offers users two battery options: a replaceable battery that provides up to 10 additional years of use with each new battery, reducing the meter’s whole life cost; or an encapsulated battery that performs in submersed pits or other underwater applications. The SM700 features a potted LCD register.

The new line of StacoSine® Active Harmonic Filters dynamically correct a wide spectrum of harmonic orders present in most water treatment plants (due to the presence of multiple motors and pumps). The filters use power electronics to monitor a non-linear load and dynamically correct every harmonic order from the 2nd to the 31st. Through an injection and cancellation process, the sine wave is restored and distortion is reduced to less than 5% THD, meeting stringent IEEE 519 standards.

Effluent diffuser valves
The custom engineered Tideflex® Effluent Diffuser Valves, with an all-elastomer “duckbill” design, prevent intrusion of saltwater and sediment into a marine outfall system and keep the outfall operating at peak hydraulic capacity and dilution efficiency. The valves can be installed in new outfall systems or retrofitted to existing pipelines on diffusers that discharge to oceans, estuaries and bays, which face severe clogging problems due to strong currents, waves, tides, sediment transport and boat traffic.

The Detective from Crowcon is a free-standing, transportable gas detector and alarm unit which provides protection wherever there are short-term hazards, such as during annual maintenance turn-a-rounds. The detectors can be used individually or in groups to monitor up to four gases at once. Sensors are available for oxygen, flammable gas and all toxic gases commonly encountered in industry. If a dangerous gas level is detected, the unit warns with a wailing 101-decibel siren and flashing, high intensity LED beacons visible from any direction.

Grease, oil skimmer
Abanaki has added a number of engineering advances to its Grease Grabber®, a patented system designed specifically to pick up heavy grease and oil under the harshest conditions - freezing temperatures, fluctuating levels, even turbulent liquids. The company has integrated a standardized single-phase electrical supply system with a push-button-start that eliminates automatic restarts.
Air demand analysis program
Kaeser’s Air Demand Analysis program is used to perform a compressed air system audit. It uses data loggers and precision sensors to create a detailed air usage profile for each specific facility. The program monitors and charts air flow, power consumption, system pressures and air quality during normal operating hours over a period of 10 days. Available for systems large and small, the analysis creates a complete picture of air requirements including the relationship between peak and base load compressors and each compressor’s duty cycle.
