Butterfly valves

GF Piping Systems' 5-series, Type-578 Lug Style Butterfly Valves offer excellent corrosion resistance with long service life and are available in manual, electric and pneumatic actuated versions. Constructed of a glass-filled polypropylene outer housing with over-molded SS316 lugs, the valve incorporates a unique industry-tested, double-eccentric design that allows the disc to completely disengage from the seal during operation, reducing friction and component wear to provide longer service life. The valve is available in PVC, CPVC, PP, ABS, and PVDF in sizes from 2" to 12" with seal material choices of EPDM, FPM and PTFE.

Submersible pumps

BJM Pumps has announced the new XP-KZN heavy-duty, submersible, explosion-proof pumps that are designed for tough conditions where explosion-proof, FM, C/US approval is needed. The XP-KZN features a top discharge, slim-line design with an agitator to suspend heavy slurries containing abrasive materials, as well as to allow for an easy fit into tight, thin spaces. It features robust construction and unmatched design, making it able to outperform and outlast standard wastewater predecessors in harsh environments. The agitator helps keep solids suspended in liquid and helps prevent the pump from clogging, reducing capital and operating costs.

Handheld meter

YSI, a Xylem brand, has launched a new multiparameter handheld meter, the YSI ProDSS. This digital handheld adds turbidity measurement as an option to the handheld line, and it also incorporates universal ports, a color display and smart sensor technology. Smart sensors enable automatic configuration of the sensor when installed, and those configurations stay with the sensor -- even if removed from the instrument -- providing ultimate flexibility. The technology in the ProDSS is similar to that found in larger systems used for continuous deployment, but it is now available in the convenience of a lighter, more portable instrument.

Plug valve, coupling

Victaulic has updated its StrengThin™ Piping System with the Series 466 plug valve and Style D08 coupling. Designed for on/off and control services, the 466 features an increased flow area and smaller end-to-end dimensions than the 465. The valve is available in 10" – 6" sizes with StrengThin or Original Groove System ends and features a super duplex body, bonnet and plug, and PTFE seats. The D08 delivers weld-like load-carrying capabilities, and rigidity and proper assembly are achieved by meeting minimum torque requirement for the applicable coupling size. With a two-piece housing, it is available in 2" – 16" sizes.



Dwyer Instruments has announced the release of its new series CSE-N1, CSE-KN, CSE-3R, & SSE Steel enclosures. With carbon steel, galvannealed steel and 304 stainless steel units ranging from 10" x 8" x 4" to 36" x 30" x 8", these UL-approved enclosures can suit a variety of needs. Dwyer offers water-tight and dust-tight enclosures along with optional drip shields and optional keyed locks to keep important instrumentation as safe as possible. Further, the company offers sub-panels and mounting straps/feet to make installation highly convenient.

Rugged computer

Handheld Group has announced a major upgrade to its popular Algiz 10X rugged computer. The Algiz 10X, a 10-inch tablet designed for field professionals, now features the new Windows 8 operating system and a much more powerful processor that speeds startup and operation, increases software compatibility and doubles processor performance. The Algiz 10X is IP65-rated and meets stringent MIL-STD-810G military standards, which means it's protected against dust, water, vibrations, drops, and extreme temperatures. It has a large, 10.1-inch touchscreen with outstanding screen visibility, yet it weighs just 2.9 lbs (1.3 kg) and is only 1.2" (32-mm) thick.

Knife gate valves

DeZURIK has announced that four knife gate valve product lines have earned Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Certification per the requirements of the IEC 61508:2010 standard. Its KGC Knife Gate Valves, KSV Severe Service Knife Gate Valves and KUL Urethane Knife Gate Valves have been certified as SIL 3 capable, and its KSV Double Block & Bleed Valves have been certified as SIL 2 capable. This enables these valves to be used in critical applications up to the SIL rating, which reflects the level of risk reduction the devices can provide when used as part of a safety instrumented system.


Data logger

The BTUM-1A logger is ideal for energy/BTU monitoring and surveys. Simply connect it to an existing flow meter to log flow, supply and return temperature differential (using its pair of strap-on temperature sensors) and calculate BTU. It accepts a 4-20 mA signal from any portable or dedicated flow meter. The kit includes easy-to-use software and two strap-on precision 100Ω RTDs with a thermo couplant, mounting tape, USB cable, and a 250-million-data-point data logger. Data can be logged on an on-board micro-SD card in .CSV format or by using Windows-based software via a USB port.

Noncontact Meters

Tape measure tether

The new Gear Keeper Retractable Tape Measure Tether from Hammerhead offers effort-free extension and gentle retraction for safety and convenience. The tether is available with a choice of two different personal attachment devices. The model RT4-5604 features a rotating Belt Clip Mount that permits a 360o range of motion. When clipped, workers can safely and easily access and extend the tape measure without fear of dropping it.

Ammonia monochloramine analyzer

Hach Company has introduced the 5500sc Ammonia Monochloramine Analyzer, which offers a reliable, easy-to-operate and low-maintenance solution to allow chloraminating water treatment plants to continuously monitor their chlorine-to-ammonia ratio online and ensure that there is no free ammonia in the system leading to nitrification. Continuous online monitoring with the 5500sc provides a more accurate and complete picture of the chloramination process, giving operators all the information needed to eliminate nitrification events and taste and odor issues. This analyzer is easy to use, featuring a user-friendly interface, simple troubleshooting menu and color-coded reagent bottles.
