Bearing heaters

Ludeca’s Eddytherm® system is a microprocessor controlled Induction Heater for bearings that allows precise setting of time or temperature to prevent premature bearing failures due to overheating. A temperature probe continuously measures and displays actual temperature. A “Stand By” feature permits holding temperature at a pre-set level for an indefinite time. The system automatically demagnetizes bearings after heating. A light and buzzer signals termination of the heating/demagnetizing cycle. Three models available.

Leak detection

The new ADS Enigma®-hyQ Leak Correlating Logger System is a non-intrusive leak correlating system optimized for leak location over long distances in large diameter and non-metallic water distribution pipes. It is designed for both real-time and pre-programmed, unassisted night-time operation when pressure is the highest and usage the lowest. The system uses high-sensitivity hydrophones to directly detect the leak noise through the water, not the pipe wall. The hydrophones are installed on existing fixtures (hydrants, PRVs, and ARVs) to place them in contact with the water for leak noise detection and recording.

Check valve

The CheckMate® Inline Check Valve is ideal for backflow prevention and odor mitigation. In outfalls, stormwater, CSO and SSO applications, the valve’s custom-engineered, all-rubber unibody design eliminates backflow from oceans, rivers and interceptors. Its elastomer fabric-reinforced design provides extremely low headloss. The valve can open to a near full pipe diameter. This maximizes the flow capacity of the outfall, which is particularly beneficial in low-lying areas where limited driving head is available. The valves are available in 4” to 72” sizes.
