Marking an industry first, onboard pump intelligence is now a standard feature of ITT Gould’s best-selling process pump, the ANSI Model 3196. The new i-FRAME stainless-steel condition monitor provides operations personnel, maintenance managers and reliability engineers – the folks responsible for monitoring and repairing rotating equipment on a 24/7 basis – with early warning of trouble so changes to the process or machine can be made before failure occurs. ITT Goulds Pumps, Seneca Falls, NY, 315-568-7122,

Incorporating a self-radiating bearing design and dry run rated non-contact system, Iwaki America’s new MXM series of magnetically driven, ductile cast iron lined pumps provides proven technology for tough chemical handling applications. The rugged, compact process pump includes motor sizes from 2 HP to 5 HP, flows to 165 GPM and heads to 146 ft. Modular construction with individually replaceable parts maximizes support flexibility. Uses standard NEMA c-face motors for installation versatility. Iwaki America Inc., Holliston, MA, 508-429-1440,

Cabinet cooling systems

With a downloadable online catalog, Noren Products makes both air-to-air and air-to-water cabinet coolers in NEMA 12, NEMA 4, NEMA 4x stainless applications. Air-to-air units remove waste heat from sealed enclosures to outside air to within a few degrees of ambient air but not below it. These units have one or more hazardous location (HL) fans or an explosion proof (XP) blower. Air-to-water units use water as coolant for below ambient cooling without need for HL fan(s) for purged applications. Noren Products Inc., Menlo Park, CA, 866-936-6736,

Ideal for water and wastewater monitoring applications, the new Microlevel by Keller America is the smallest level transmitter in its class, boasting 0.63” diameter. The micro-bore submersible level transmitter comes standard with ±0.25% FS (±0.1% optional) Total Error Band over the range of 0-50°C resulting in higher accuracy and more reliable data in real world conditions. It’s available in custom pressure ranges up to 375 ftWC. And, unique to this class of instrument are its dual outputs (4-20 mA analog + RS485 digital) that can both be used for level measurement. Keller America Inc., Newport News, VA, 800-253-5537,

Dewatering pump

Sewage, debris and chemical discharge have always been a sad byproduct of the dewatering industry. Thompson Pump’s Enviroprime® system prevents blowby – sewage, debris and chemicals – from discharging onto the ground, keeping the surrounding environment clean and safe. Even when simply rerouting stormwater, spillage is assured not to happen. This innovative priming system uses an air compressor to separate air from water moving through the pump, which prevents its venturi from clogging and causing a shutdown. Thompson Pump & Manufacturing, Port Orange, FL, 386-944-4145,

Automatic onsite caustic dilution

The patented design of Force Flow’s Merlin Dilution system permits total flexibility in final dilution strength, optimizes metering pump accuracy and allows chemical usage to be remotely monitored. Users can purchase chemicals at less expensive higher concentration, then automatically dilute it down to any strength right before feeding. Diluting onsite improves feed loop control and operator safety. Force Flow, Concord, CA, 800-893-6723,

Peristaltic pump

Watson-Marlow Bredel heavy-duty SPX pump is ideal for challenging environmental applications, reliably handling a variety of harsh materials including abrasive sludge. Advanced hose technology enables it to pump grit-filled sludge dependably for a long period of time. Unlike other pump types, the highly abrasive nature of sludge does not affect pump life, making the SPX an enduring solution for tough environmental applications. Watson-Marlow Bredel, Boston, MA, 800-282-8823,

High purity water

The Recoflo® Demineralizer has proven, consistent performance with each of its key features offering up to five times higher throughput rates than other demineralizers. Utilizing the next generation of ion exchange with compressed-bed, counter-current technology, the Eco-Tec unit produces water with a conductivity as low as 0.1 µS/cm (10 megohm/cm resistivity) with less than 0.010 mg/L of silica using only cation and anion beds. With the consistent philosophy of a simple package with proven reliability, it produces high purity water at lower operating and total installed costs. Eco-Tec Inc., Pickering, Ontario, Canada, 905-427-0077,
