Water system software, by Dow Water & Process Solutions

Dow Water & Process Solutions introduces its Water Application Value Engine (WAVE)—a new digital modeling tool for customers that will save time and increase efficiency for evaluating components, as well as designing water treatment systems. The WAVE tool has been beta-launched to a pilot group of DW&PS customers and is expected to launch commercially in 2015. The innovative modeling software combines UF modules, RO membranes and ion exchange resins into one fully integrated tool that enables users to project accurate water quality predictions for single- or multiple-unit water treatment designs utilizing DW&PS technologies. www.dowwaterandprocess.com

Paddlewheel flowmeter, by Blue-White Industries

Blue-White Industries’ BW DIGI-METER® Micro-Flo with analog output displays flowrate and accumulated total flow and features 4-20 mA / 0-10 VDC circuitry for low-flow applications. Units include an NPN open collector output for communication with SCADA systems. Flow ranges include 30-7,000 mL/min. Connection options include 0.125-, 0.25- and 0.50-inch (3.175-, 6.35- and 12.7-mm) threaded connection and 0.25- and 0.375-inch (9.525-mm) OD tubing connections. A clear PVC viewing lens allows for visual confirmation of flow. A PVDF chemical-resistant lens is also available. The LCD display indicates operating mode and battery status; the memory is non-volatile. The meter is field-programmable via a front-panel touch pad or can be factory programmed. The front panel has a lockout option and the Total Reset Function can be disabled to prevent tampering. Electronics are AC-powered. The display is remote mounted and is weather-resistant NEMA 4X washdown. www.blue-white.com, sales@blue-white.com

Level measurement system, by Nivus GmbH

Due to its very low energy consumption, Nivus GmbH’s NivuLevel 150 measurement system provides self-sufficient measuring of level and temperature, featuring a lifetime of up to five years.
