Fluid recycling

To foster in-depth understanding of the new WasteWizard® and MiniWizard™ industrial fluid recycling systems, Osmonics, has released an interactive CD-ROM. This resource provides information about applications of the new products, describes their mechanics and specifications, teaches users about chemical compatibility of the fluids they would like to recycle and generates cost-savings estimates. The WasteWizard Series systems were developed to purify and recycle spent industrial fluids. These systems employ a new filtration technology for recycling aqueous cleaner baths, mass-finishing compounds, mop water and other water-based industrial fluids in nearly any size metalworking and parts repair operation.

Safety shutoff systems

Halogen Valve Systems offers a free planning kit on its automatic shut off systems for Chlorine and SO2 cylinder and ton container valves. The Eclipse Actuator™ mounts directly to standard container valves without special tools. The battery—operated actuator will close a chlorine valve in less than one second in response to signals from leak detectors, earthquake sensors, and local or remote "panic buttons." The latest Fire Codes recognize and approve the "automatic-closing fail-safe shutoff valve" system in lieu of a scrubber treatment system.
