Analyzer system, by Electro-Chemical Devices, Inc.

Offering a precision nitrate ISE electrode sensor with an integral self-cleaning sprayer, the HYDRA Nitrate Analyzer System from Electro-Chemical Devices, Inc. is ideal for nitrate monitoring in wastewater treatment aeration basins. The intelligent HYDRA measures the concentration of dissolved nitrate as nitrogen (NO3–N) in water. The sensor uses two electrodes to determine the NO3–N concentration: a nitrate ion electrode and a chloride ion electrode. An optional electrode is also available for pH or ammonium measurement. The nitrate sensor offers 1.25-inch (31.75-mm) NPT rear-facing threads for attaching an extension/immersion tube for easy installation from catwalks or handrails. Internal signal conditioning allows the sensor to be mounted up to 200 meters (656 feet) from the analyzer. www.ecdi.com sales@ecdi.com

De-deammonification system, by World Water Works, Inc.

World Water Works, Inc.’s DEMON treatment system uses a patented and patent-pending biological process to remove nitrogen from water at a substantially lower consumption of energy and chemicals. It uses 60-percent less energy and produces 90-percent less sludge than traditional nitrogen removal processes and does not require the use of methanol. With a small carbon footprint, which sequesters carbon dioxide, the system is very environmentally friendly. A unique biomass separation device maintains appropriate levels of ammonia oxidizing bacteria (AOB) and anaerobic ammonium oxidizing (anammox) bacteria, both of which are key to the low-energy, no-chemical deammonification process. www.WorldWaterWorks.com, (800) 607-7873

Air-water dispensers, by Skywell LLC

Skywell LLC introduces three models of air-water water dispensers. Skywell 5T features an interactive touch-screen with programmable features designed to transform the water-consuming experience at the office. Skywell 100P and Skywell 100N are high-capacity units designed for both potable and non-potable usage. Skywell 5T draws ambient air into the unit where it undergoes a process similar to nature’s very own water cycle; moisture is collected and then purified using a rigorous multi-filter process, along with the introduction of UV and ozone exposure between storage and consumption. This unit requires only a standard electrical outlet to operate and sits on four wheels so that it can be placed anywhere. It features an eight-inch, high-resolution, interactive touch-screen that engages users with water-temperature displays, water facts and stored water volume. The 5T also dispenses hot and cold water with customizable settings of 190-200°F (87-93°C) for hot water and approximately 37°F (2.7°C) for cold water. www.skywell.com/

Flomatic, by Flowmatic Corporation

Flomatic Corporation introduces a new 0.5-inch (12.7-mm) break-off plug for eight-inch (203.2-mm) submersible ductile iron and stainless steel valves, made in 303 stainless or a high-strength engineered composite material. A break-off plug allows for lighter lifting weight by allowing water to drain from a pipe, after the plug is broken, by dropping a smaller pipe down the inside diameter of the pipe. It also eliminates water accumulating at the surface of a well, allowing for a clean and simple pull of riser pipe. This new size allows for quicker drainage from the pipe verses the standard 0.375-inch (9.52-mm) size. www.flomatic.com, flomatic@flomatic.com, (800) 833-2040

Purge solutions, by Pepperl+Fuchs

Pepperl+Fuchs adds the 5500 Series purge and pressurization system to its Bebco EPS line of purge solutions. This Type Z/Ex pz purge system delivers a fully automatic solution in a compact, 316 L stainless steel design. The series is comprised of three components: a compact (5 x 5 x 4) control unit that can be internally or externally mounted and provides an easy-to-use interface; an EPV vent that functions as a pressure relief device, enabling the purge gas to exit the enclosure while providing a seal when the enclosure is pressurized and operating, and a pneumatic solenoid or manual valve. Other features include menu-driven programming and automatic leakage temperature compensation. The system has third-party, worldwide approvals for NEC, CEC, IEC standards and CE directives for Class I, II, III/Division 2 and Zone 2/22 environments. www.pepperl-fuchs.us/usa/en/25851.htm, pa-info@us.pepperl-fuchs.com

Differential ph/ORP sensors, by Sensorex

Sensorex’s SD7000 Series differential pH/ORP sensors offer water, wastewater and process plant operators a new measurement method based on proven sensor technology. The differential electrode technique employs three electrodes. Solution pH is measured differentially with process (outer hemi glass) and inner reference (surrounded by a known concentrated pH 7 buffer) electrodes. This provides optimal measurement accuracy, minimizes reference junction potential and eliminates sensor ground loop effects. Differential sensor design results in less maintenance for operators, minimized down time, longer sensor life and overall greater reliability. www.sensorex.com, sales@sensorex.com
