Flowmeters, by Blue-White Industries

Blue-White Industries’ F-462N Series flowmeters feature metal-free wetted parts, making them ideal for use in many ultrapure applications, where contact with metal could contaminate the fluid. Constructed of molded Polysulfone, these meters offer better resistance to high temperatures and pressures, as well as many harsh chemicals. Maximum fluid temperature is 200°F/93°C at 0 psi. Maximum working pressure is 150 psi/10.3 bar at 70°F/21°C. An optional splash shield is available. The high-capacity flowmeter utilizes precisely engineered ridges molded into the meter body, which guide PTFE floats. Calibration range is 2.0 to 80 gpm (8.0 to 300 L/m). Additional features include: Polysulfone two-inch F/NPT fittings with FKM O-rings and half union adapter connections; socket fusion fittings are also available. Permanent direct-reading scales are easy to read. www.blue-white.com, sales@blue-white.com

Activated oxygen faucets, by Clearwater Tech, LLC.

ClearWater Tech introduces ActivTapp faucets for residential use. The patented technology mixes ozone with water to produce a natural, powerful disinfectant in just seconds. The sleek design delivers activated-oxygen water directly from the home’s water supply through the faucet, reducing bacteria, viruses and pesticides found on fruit, vegetables, seafood, poultry and meat. This keeps food fresh, allowing them to retain quality, color and flavor longer. The system also disinfects and oxidizes multi-food surfaces, reducing mold and mildew. Installation is virtually the same as replacing a kitchen faucet and plugging in the ozone generator. No special tools or extensive plumbing knowledge required. The equipment is hidden away under the sink and easily connects to the required utilities. Just plug the unit into any 120v outlet and a convenient on/off switch allows the user to select ozone or no ozone. The side-spray faucet is dedicated to an ozone rinse and the 3-way faucet delivers, hot, cold or ozonated water. A manual comes with all faucet kits detailing the proper installation of the system. www.cwtozone.com, sales@cwtozone.com
