Scale control

BWA recently introduced its new chemical inhibitor modeling software, BWA WaterCycle. The software was jointly developed with French Creek Software, the creator of WaterCycle, a leading scale and corrosion modeling software for the water treatment industry. The new version of the software will allow BWA customers to develop scale control packages for their cooling and process water systems. The company has also launched a new set of antiscalants specifically designed for environmentally conscious customers.

Plunger pumps

The Aplex product offering from Pentair Water has expanded to include an all new 300 horsepower pump with
flows up to 476 gpm and maximum working pressure of 3600 psi. The MA-300 series includes both the MA-300L for lower pressure, higher volume applications and the MA-300M for higher pressure, lower volume applications. The series was designed for heavy industrial applications including the oil & gas industry. It has the same easy-to-service features as other Aplex pumps including removable stuffing boxes, patented valve pulling tools and an integral power end lubrication system.

ORP sensors

The S10 and S17 ORP Sensors from Electro-Chemical Devices (ECD) feature a no-glass design with platinum or gold sensor tips to operate safely in a wide range of applications. The sensors come with replaceable ORP cartridges that plug into a rugged 316 stainless steel body, which incorporates the sensing element, a temperature module and a signal conditioner with cabling. The S10 is an immersion or insertion style sensor, and the S17 is a valve retractable style sensor. Electro-Chemical Devices, Irvine, CA, 800-729-1333,

Submersible transmitter

American Sensor Technologies offers the AST4520 flush diaphragm submersible transmitter for level monitoring of turbulent tanks. Compatible with a range of chemicals and suitable for waste, brackish and fresh water systems, the transmitter can be used in food tanks, viscous media tanks, and lift stations for wastewater and storm water. It features all stainless steel construction and is approved to UL/cUL913 Class 1, Division 1 IS, Groups C and D with an approved barrier. The flush diaphragm steel cage design allows for proper flow of media while keeping the sensor at the bottom of the tank or well. American Sensor Technologies, Mount Olive, NJ, 973-448-1901,

Ball valves

Conval recently announced that its Camseal© ball valves now have forged bodies. These new forged ball valves are available in ½" through 4" sizes with top entry, socket weld, butt weld, and flanged ends. Pressure classes range from ASME 900 through 4500. The valves feature a "zero leakage" design, robust stem-ball engagement, improved bearing support, chrome carbide coating, in-line servicing, integral ISO-5211 mounting pad, and two-year warranty.

Level transmitter

Endress+Hauser announces the Levelflex FMP55 multiparameter level transmitter that can measure both the overall level of a liquid and the interface between two liquids. The FMP55 is the first transmitter to use two level technologies built into one probe. The transmitter will automatically switch between the technologies in order to provide a concise and reliable interface measurement, even in the presence of emulsion or rag layers. Capacitance is not affected by emulsion or rag layers in interface applications, and radar allows the transmitter to monitor the overall level as well as the interface level. Endress+Hauser Inc., 317-535-1329,

Wastewater treatment

Biowater Technology specializes in wastewater treatment systems for food and beverage processing facilities. Its systems optimize treatment configurations to help a customer's Clean-in-place (CIP) and Clean-out-of-place (COP) systems work more efficiently and make sure compliance is achieved. The companies products include MBBR, IFAS, package systems and a new generation of MBBR-CFIC®. Its systems can be used for new construction or to upgrade an old treatment plant to meet new regulations. Biowater's MBBR/CMFF® Complete Mix Fixed-Film treatment plant is compact, has a flexible design and can be retrofitted into existing plants.

Septic chambers

Cultec Recharger® and Contactor® underground septic chambers offer an alternative to concrete galleries and conventional pipe and stone systems, especially for sites with space constraints. The Recharger 150, 180, 280 and 330XL models are high-profile, high-capacity septic chambers. The Contactor EZ-24, 100, 125 and Field Drain C-4 models are lower profile, lower capacity chambers, typically used for septic installations with depth restrictions or where larger units may not be approved by the local authority. Cultec, Brookfield, CT, 800-428-5832,

Flow meters

Parker Fluid Control Division has introduced a new line of Vortex Shedding Flow Meters. These inline flow meters are ideal for applications using water, water/glycol coolant and other low-viscosity fluids. The meters can be used for cooling water to furnace walls and inductors in steel mills; cooling boiler feed pumps and turbine bearing cooling in power generation plants; as well as for rubber, mining, municipal wastewater treatment, and water addition in chemical and process applications.
