Oil skimmers

Abanaki offers a full range of oil skimmers to solve the unique cleaning problems found in the mining industry. Its Oil Grabber Model 4 has specially designed belts that can collect all of the oil products present in a wash bay, and coupled with the optional Oil Concentrator, they effectively remove the oil without picking up much water. The Portable Tote-It oil skimmer works well in smaller wash bays or in other parts of the mine where water and oil are present. As with the rest of Abanaki’s product line, it is available in stainless steel. Abanaki Corp., Cleveland, OH, 800-358-7546,

TOC analyzer

The Sievers InnovOx On-Line Total Organic Carbon (TOC) Analyzer, available from GE, will allow users to analyze challenging water samples on a routine basis without requiring excessive preventive maintenance. The analyzer uses a Supercritical Water Oxidation (SCWO) technique that offers enhanced reliability, greater ease of use and lower maintenance than other TOC analyzers. GE Power & Water, Boulder, CO, 215-942-3613,

Aggregate, mine dewatering

MATEC has introduced its aggregate and mine dewatering technology to North America. The line of water treatment equipment has been used worldwide for cleaning and recovering up to 90% of the washwater at quarries, mines and other aggregate facilities. The system eliminates the need for settlement ponds. The system features an HPT High Pressure Filter Press and decanter-style clarifier. Besides having a small footprint, the system offers lower maintenance costs and essentially has no moving parts. MATEC In America, Boca Raton, FL, 508-293-8400,

Modular mechanical seals

By forming a mechanical seal between pipes going through walls, floors and pipeline casings, APS Innerlynx® are designed to be installed by one worker with no special training. The mechanical seals are non-conductive and isolating. They are made from synthetic rubber with heavy-duty, plastic pressure plates. Sixteen different sizes are available for most pipe sizes with diameters ranging from ½” to 120”. Advance Products & Systems, Lafayette, LA, 800-315-6009,

Solenoid valves

The Spartan Scientific Series 4700 valves are two way, two position, normally open or normally closed, pilot diaphragm operated solenoid valves specifically designed for high flow, high pressure applications. These valves, with orifice sizes of 20mm to 25mm and port sizes of ¾” and 1.0” NPT, are offered with a standard manual override. Depending on port size, the 4700 operates in a pressure range of 4.5 to 220 psi and has a flow factor of 9.1Cv to 14Cv. The encapsulated coil is a quick connect DIN 43650 Form “A” design and is compatible with air, oil, gas, water and fuel. Spartan Scientific, Boardman, OH, 330-758-8446,

Cartridge filters

W.L. Gore & Associates is offering a new family of highly efficient cartridge filters that improve water quality and reduce total cost of filtration for ultrapure water and de-ionized water used in the manufacture of semiconductors and silicon wafers. Gore has used its expertise in ePTFE materials and membrane technology to engineer a family of filters that offer 3x the flow rate of best-in-class filters without sacrificing particle retention, and that can be easily substituted for filters in the field that no longer meet performance or cost requirements. W.L. Gore & Associates, Elkton, MD, 410-506-5556,

Stationary sampler

The Liquistation CSF48 automatic stationary sampler from Endress+Hauser takes liquid samples from process streams, stores them in plastic or glass bottles for sample preservation and later analysis, and can perform up to two on-line analyses at the measuring point. Using the company’s Memosens sensors, measurements available include nitrates, conductivity, oxygen, pH or ORP, and turbidity. Other sensors are available on a custom basis. The sensors have 4-20mA outputs. Endress+Hauser Inc., 317-535-1329,

Tank covers

Environetics Defender™ Tank Covers are custom manufactured from industrial grade materials to fit the profile of new or existing wastewater treatment tanks or potable water tanks. The covers help contain volatile organic compounds at their source. Low profile structurally supported covers minimize emission treatment volume to reduce the cost of air filtration equipment. Environetics Inc., Lockport, IL, 815-838-8331,

Vee-ball valves

Emerson Process Management has extended its Fisher Vee-Ball family to include the V150E expanded outlet version. The valve features a transitional flow contour that increases in flow area from inlet to outlet. The V150E is designed for installation directly to a medium consistency pump discharge flange, and the expanded outlet will accommodate larger diameter transfer lines. The single piece body design has no gasket joints which eliminates potential leak paths. Emerson Process Management,
