Magnetic flowmeters

The M-5000 and M-2000 Mag Meters, which feature no moving parts, are designed to deliver precise and timely flow measurement information with minimum maintenance requirements. The battery-operated, general purpose detection M-5000 is suitable for remote settings and can measure well water, wastewater, reclaimed water, and bidirectional flow applications that have minimal electrical conductivity. Its amplifier can be integrally mounted to the detector or mounted remotely. The M-5000 is designed to achieve an accuracy of ±0.5% and a flow range better than 300:1. The M-2000 delivers flow measurement suitable for meter lines, fluids with suspended solids, and most applications that require exacting measures. The general purpose M-2000, designed for field-verification testing with the use of a hand-held device, can achieve an accuracy of ±0.25%. In addition, the M-Series field-verification device, designed for use with these two meters, is a compact, hand-held tool designed to simplify the process of field-verification testing, enabling users to perform a series of tests onsite in less than 20 minutes. Badger Meter (Milwaukee). 

Data loggers

The DL150 single-channel and DL160 dual-channel true RMS alternating current (AC) voltage and current data loggers are designed for electrical, industrial plant maintenance, and predictive maintenance professionals who need to record in-depth readings for electrical motors, components, or circuits. Users can download readings to a computer for analysis and trending or export data in a spreadsheet format using the data loggers’ software application. The DL150 offers users normal, peak, and capture operating modes. The two-channel DL160 is suitable for simultaneously logging both current and voltage of one component or one measurement from two separate components. Each unit comes complete with current clamps, test leads, USB cable, Windows®-compatible software, universal AC Adaptor, and 3.6-V lithium battery. Extech Instruments (Waltham, Mass.).  

Chlorine dioxide generator

The HP-1 Unit, part of the HP ElectroChemical Generator product line, produces up to 1 lb/d of 99.5% pure chlorine dioxide. It produces a chlorine dioxide level of 500 ppm in water. By incorporating an integral dosing pump, the generator is suitable for private water systems, small cooling towers, and various process water applications. The unit offers offsite remote communication, allowing for on/off capability, process feedback control, a programmable logic controller with color touch-screen operator interface terminal, and an integrated distributed-control system capability. The compact, fully assembled, factory-tested generator is designed to minimize installation and integration issues. PureLine Treatment Systems (Palatine, Ill.).  


The Hydrosert® 1.5- and 2-in. copper tube size (CTS) couplings are noncorrosive and feature a “no stress” design that separates and optimizes both the gripping and sealing areas of the fitting. Once assembled, the fitting is free to rotate on the pipe without affecting the watertight seal. The connection method is designed to provide dependable, leakproof performance. The fittings are pressure-rated to the design pressure of the piping to be connected, up to 13.8 bar (200 lb/in.2). The fittings are designed for underground high-density polyethylene water piping in residential water systems. Elster Perfection Corp. (Madison, Ohio).  

Flow turbines

The FTB370 flow turbines are compact in design and measure a wide range of flow rates for water and many water-based liquids. The turbines feature sapphire bearings for long life expectancy and uniform bearing load design to minimize bearing wear. They also feature a fixed pulse rate and wide turndown ratio. The turbines are suitable for water and wastewater industries and applications involving automotive testing and water processing. Omega Engineering Inc. (Stamford, Conn.).
