The UXF1 Converter is part of a fixed ultrasonic flowmeter system based on the transit time measurement method for measuring flow rates of relatively clean homogeneous liquids. Systems are composed of a converter and a clamp-on sensor. With its microprocessor-based electronics, this ultrasonic flowmeter can be configured from the front keyboard to particular applications. The Series UXF1 sensor is suitable for liquid flow measurement for pipe diameters from 0.50 to 235 in. This unit features a large LCD display and function keys, as well as a multilingual display.

The redesigned F-450N Series Flowmeter is designed to be durable, with 25% greater body-wall thickness to resist high temperatures and pressures. Other features include an adjustable flow-indicating marker, flow ranges from 0.1 to 10 gal/min, a direct-reading permanent scale, configurations for in-line or panel mount, and an optional integral flow-adjustment valve.

An expanded line of AXIMA MALDI TOF mass spectrometers includes the PerformanceTM, ConfidenceTM, and AssuranceTM. All systems are fully integrated with robotic sample-preparation devices, including the AccuSpot MALDI plate spotter and CHIP chemical printer. Flexible target formats range from 48-well microscope slide format targets to a 384-well microtitre plate target. Shimadzu Scientific Instruments (Kyoto, Japan).
The Mc® Propeller Model MO300SW Reverse-Helix Flow Meter is designed to shed a variety of organic and inorganic debris and resists sand typically associated with flow measurement in surface-water and water-well applications. The flowmeter comes in a bolt-on saddle configuration suitable for use in line sizes from 4 to 12 in. The reverse-helix impellers are designed with high-impact polypropylene plastic. The flowmeter offers stainless steel construction, requires no electric power, and features a standard instantaneous mechanical flow indicator with a six-digit flow totalizer.
