Moore Industries' new service — SNAP, or Special Needs and Products — provides customized solutions to meet unusual signal interface needs in industrial process control, systems integration and factory automation applications. It's meant to solve problems customers sometimes face when they need something specific to their operation. Typical modifications include special instrument functions, such as non-standard signal inputs and outputs, non-standard power ranges, computing and math functions, alarm trip modifications, and more. SNAP engineers also will work with customers to develop special and OEM instrument housings and enclosures and custom mounts, connectors, temperature sensors and thermowells.

To ensure compliance with regulations and avoid fines for exceeding permit discharge levels, more frequent wastewater measurements are necessary to determine total oil/grease concentrations. Portable infrared analyzers from Wilks Enterprise are designed for easy, on-site measurement of oil/grease concentrations. The InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzer, Model HATR-T2 or the Model CVH — depending on the solvent selected for the extraction process — provides on-site measurement of total oil/grease concentration in wastewater in 10-15 minutes.

Dow Water Solutions offers two new FILMTEC™ 8-inch SWRO membrane elements for improved performance and energy efficiency in desalination applications. At 99.80%, the SW30XHR-400i has the highest salt rejection consistently demonstrated in the industry. It also effectively removes boron and other dissolved solids. The SW30ULE-400i elements have a flow rate of 11,000 gpd with 99.70% salt rejection, offering flow twice that of the original sea water element introduced in 1985, without having to sacrifice salt rejection. They're especially suited for seawater desalination at low temperatures, in addition to high TDS brackish water systems. Dow Water Solutions, Edina, MN,
