EXPC-1319 is designed to be used in industrial settings. Rugged for extreme
environments, the system meets UL Class 1, Division 2, and IEC ATEX Zone 2
hazardous location codes without the need for special measures, such as complex
and expensive enclosures or additional certification processes. It can be
installed in hazardous areas worldwide where potentially explosive gases or
vapors may be present, such as in petrochemical and chemical processing plants,
mining, paint factories, and fueling stations. Because these areas often are
subject to high humidity, the panels are sealed off to NEMA 4X and IP66 ingress
standards to protect their sensitive electronics from water ingress even when
they are deployed outdoors. In addition, the panels meet T5 temperature
requirements by maintaining an operating temperature of 120°C (248°F) or less
in ambient temperature of 60°C (140°F). It is fully functional down to –40°C
(–40°F), conditions expected in arctic oil drilling.
It comes standard with a high-performance Intel
1.8-GHz Atom core D525
platform. Depending on preference, the operator can elect to use the LCD in
either touch-screen or standard mode.

750-885 Media Redundancy Controller provides applications with network
redundancy and greater data processing. The Ethernet 2.0 750–885 p
rogrammable logic controller
features two redundant networks backed by dual, independent Ethernet interfaces
and 1 MB

infrastructure hardware, the software delivers a Web-based advanced metering
analytics solution that helps utilities optimize operations to increase productivity,
improve customer service, conserve resources, and generate more revenue. At a
glance, water utility personnel can see potential issues, such as leaks,
tampering, no usage, reverse flow, and endpoints that are reaching the final
days of useful life. Badger Meter (Milwaukee).
A unique drive
mechanism for electric automatic self-cleaning filters has been developed,
tested, and put into production for critical filtration applications. Positive
movement of the cleaning mechanism with simplification of the controls results
in less maintenance and greater reliability. No limit switches, no reversing
motor, no double contactors, and no chance of crashing at the end of the stroke
are designed to make the drive on this spot-focused suctioning dirt collector
robust and long-lasting. Coupled with increased screen area, the Model ORE/A
automatic self-cleaning electric screen filters are some of the largest and
most dependable heavy-duty filters on the market.
Intelligent toxic-gas detector offers protection against a wide range of
hazardous industrial gases and is able to safeguard against oxygen deficiency.
The detector features event logging, a clearly visible LED, and an indicator
for remaining sensor life. It is compatible with the HART communications
protocol for uniform and consistent communication without disturbing the
integrity of the 4–20-mA analog signals and also is available in a Modbus
configuration and with three 8A relays. All of the electronics are contained
within an explosionproof housing so that sensor information can be processed at
the sensor site. The detector is easy to install and can self-calibrate by
activating a magnetic switch and applying gas.
The new Trash Flow

handle heads up to 750 ft, flows up to 15,000 gal/min, and a temperature range
of 18°F to 250°F (–8°C to 120°C). The horizontally split casing enables
replacement of bearings and the mechanical seal without disturbing the system
piping. Other features include hydraulically balanced double-suction impeller,
a tongue-and-groove neck design that eliminates rotating-assembly seizing, and
permanently lubricated single-row bearings.
high-efficiency evaporation process treats produced water from such oil sands
thermal processes as steam-assisted gravity drainage. The process preconditions
the feed water by incorporating a softening step, combined with additional
conditioning of the feedwater, prior to treatment by the evaporators. This
process provides the evaporators with a scale-free environment in which to
operate. Other advantages include high allowable concentration factors;
increased recovery of high-quality reusable water; no requirement for
antiscalants; no requirement for EDTA dosing; and no requirement for mechanical
The z70 Chief
Inspector Heat Spy camera is designed for maximum resolution for precise
thermal images. The system features a 30-Hz 384 × 288 resolution for 44% more
pixels than 320- × 240-resolution imagers. Each of the 110,592 pixels displayed
on the 3.5-in. color LCD screen is fully calibrated to provide clear, sharp
images. Improved thermal sensitivity of 0.06 at 30°C helps the user make finer
distinctions between displayed temperatures, pinpointing subtle differences and
issues that may be present. Users can load thermal images to the photo
application on the iPad and use a reporting application to develop a report.

IDEAL PrepPRO™ prepares virtually any coaxial cable ranging from large RG-6
Quad to RG-59 plenum with industry-standard 0.25- × 0.25-in. strips in as few
as two turns of its spinner ring. In addition, by replacing the primary blade
cartridge with the included UTP/STP cartridge, the tool can cleanly remove the
outer jacket of CAT3/5e/6 cables, doubling its value by replacing the need for
a traditional UTP stripper. The tool features a spring-loaded jaw design that
achieves the continuous balanced forces required to cut cables clean and fast.
Blade forces will not relax over time. The ergonomic lever can be actuated to
set the blade by thumb or palm grip as preferred by the user. It also
cost-effectively provides cable installers with versatile stripping power in a
compact and rugged form factor that travels easily to various jobsites. Its
contoured body slips easily into pant pockets or tool pouches, and clips onto
clothing in between cable preparations.

SFT-10 Liquid Carbon Dioxide Pump can deliver carbon dioxide at pressures up to
10,000 lb/in.2 (69 MPa) at flow rates from 0.01 to 24.0 mL/min.
These characteristics make the pump ideal for use in supercritical fluid
extraction, and a variety of other high-pressure applications, including
supercritical fluid reaction chemistry and chromatography. The pump uses
dual-sapphire syringe pump technology to achieve high pressures rapidly. The
Peltier chiller has superior cooling capability. It maintains the temperature
at the pump heads low enough to ensure that carbon dioxide remains liquid. The
standard operating mode is “constant pressure” where the pump will maintain a
pressure set point. An optional constant flow mode, from 0.01 to 24.0 mL/min is
available. Supercritical Fluid Technologies Inc. (Newark, Del.).
