Chlor-alkali applications create some of the harshest conditions to which chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) material can be subjected, and thus materials intended for use in these settings must be especially resilient to localized corrosion and stress- corrosion cracking. Made from durable CPVC, Corzan® Industrial Systems offers superior resistance to corrosive chemicals, high temperatures and harsh application conditions. As a result, pipe and fittings made from Corzan deliver what the process industry needs most -- longer service life, lower maintenance costs and reduced downtime in the toughest environments, including wet chlorine gas, high-purity brine and brine-saturated chlorine.

The new flat fascia makes these models a perfect fit for the food and pharmaceutical industries. These configurations include digital and analog inputs and outputs, high-speed I/O, PT100/Thermocouple capabilities, and weight measurement. The I/O can be mounted locally or remotely, up to 1000 m from the controller.
The ABB Low Voltage Products division has introduced the Emax Link, an abbreviated switchgear that provides electrical distribution equipment manufacturers (DEMs) a solution to easily design and build their own UL 1558 switchgears. The Emax Link is designed to provide power distribution, protection and safety, providing DEMs with an advanced solution to withstand the mechanical, electrical and thermal stress found in a variety of manufacturing environments. The comprehensive ratings of the Emax Link allow DEMs to complete the switchgear lineup by simply adding the custom controls and wiring required for the specific application. The Emax Link is available with a main bus rated current up to 10,000 amps at 600V.
Metropolitan's new LMS II level management system is a pre-programmed level controller with a color touch screen operator interface. The LMS II allows users to seamlessly alter pump options, transducer options and more. Each LMS II unit also comes complete with integrated help screens, making the operation of your system easy and intuitive and giving users access to basic SCADA features at a cost-effective price. It is a menu-configurable, constant-speed, pump-down level controller, allowing for the control of one to three pumps, with optional pre-programmed configurations for single/dual level transducers, a 0-20 mA flow meter input and a completely redundant float backup controller.
