Red Valve's newest product, the Series DX slurry knife gate valve, is designed for heavy slurry applications in the power and mining industries. When the valve opens, reinforced elastomer sleeves seal against each other and provide a 100% full port opening, minimizing turbulence which in turn minimizes wear. The seats isolate and protect all metal parts of the valve from coming in contact with the process. Red Valve Co. Inc., Carnegie, PA, 412-279-0044, www.redvalve.com

Krohne introduces the WATERFLUX 3070, a new measuring instrument that is an electromagnetic water meter for applications in the water and wastewater industry. Its 15-year battery life makes it ideal for applications where no power is available. The device also has the option of a GSM module for remote transmission of measurement data and status information. With its short inlet and outlet installation requirements, the meter can be installed in very narrow wells and chambers. Krohne Inc., Peabody, MA, 800-356-9464, www.krohne.com
