Ball check valves

Click here to enlarge image

These ball check valves provide superior ease of operation in situations where tight shut-off is required. In the event of backflow, shut-off is immediate while a tighter seal is provided for higher reverse flow pressure. These devices are ideal for high-pressure fluids and those that create gummy deposits. Its thick plastic liner construction resists corrosion and potential permeation to maintain purity of fluids. The company offers simple yet reliable ball check valves designed to permit gases and liquids to flow in only one direction, preventing process flow from reversing in highly corrosive or ultra-pure processes. Its technology is beneficial for most one-way directional services and applications and can be installed at any angle or in tight spaces. Its design minimizes end cost by eliminating the need for lined valves, actuators and alternative power sources.

Coiled FEP tubing

Click here to enlarge image

Coiltef FEP fluoropolymer tubing begins as standard, straight-wall, semi-rigid tubing and is heat-set into a permanent, retractable coil for nearly unlimited flexibility. Typical uses include chemical transfer, laboratory and medical use, food and beverage lines, pure air and water transfer, robotics, adhesives and solvent delivery, and paint spray systems. Fluoropolymer tubing materials (FEP, PTFE and PFA) are often desired because of their combination of physical properties including: chemical, temperature and corrosion resistance; non-stick and non-flammability benefits; good electrical properties; and low gas permeability and chemical inertness. The Coiltef is available in five sizes from 1/16- to 3/8-inch tubing I.D. Standard lengths include 12, 24, 48 and 72 inches, although most any length can be manufactured. Injection-molded fittings made from PFA fluoropolymer are also stocked, allowing for a complete fluoropolymer system. Custom options include PFA formulation Coiltef, colored material, other I.D. sizes and special coil diameters.

Microbial air sampler

Click here to enlarge image

The Spin Microbial air sampler features portability, accuracy and ease-of-use. The unit spins the petri dish while drawing in air from the environment. This air sampler ensures that the microbial counts are accurate by reducing the probability of two or more particles impacting the plate in the same location, which can result in a falsely lowered microbial count. The unit can be used with a barcode reader for speed, and the results can be printed out on most printers. The air sampler can be fitted with a 100 mm or 60 mm petri dish adapter. The entire unit comes in a rigid hard shell carrying case.Hardy Diagnostics

Ceramic membrane filtration

Click here to enlarge image

The Kerasep ceramic filtration process for food manufacturing begins with ultra-filtration membranes that clarify fermentation broths at the start of the purification phase, which allows for simplification of sub­sequent filtration phases as well as reduction in the amount of effluent produced. The membranes have a pore diameter of between 1 and 100 nanometers, which allows small molecules (e.g., water, salts, sugars) to pass through while matter and molecules with high molar mass are blocked. Kerasep ceramic membranes are also designed for biotechnology and environmental applications, and for the automobile and other industries where treatment of oil waste is required.

Coved-corner sinks

Click here to enlarge image

A comprehensive line of deep-drawn coved-corner sinks from Eagle MHC combines a highly functional design with corrosion-free construction to optimize sanitation and efficiency in industrial workplace or lab settings. Offered with a choice of one, two, three or four bowl compartments, these sinks feature heavy-gauge stainless steel construction-including the bowls, drainboards and backsplash components. All models are approved by the NSF (National Sanitation Foundation). The sink bowls for Eagle’s coved-corner sinks feature deep-drawn, one-piece seamless construction, along with a swirl-away drainage design for complete evacuation of water. The standard bowl size (14-inch water level) and shape are ideal for accommodating a wide range of equipment sizes-even those of extremely large diameters and depths. The coved corners prevent spillage and promote cleanliness of the floor area around the sink, while the drainboard’s die-stamped “crease” design enables faster and more complete water drainage. Designed for rugged durability, the sink design includes front-to-back leg braces for added rigidity and elimination of “wobble.” The leg gussets are welded to a die-cut heavy-gauge reinforcing plate to optimize sturdiness. All outside corners of the sink are bull-nosed to eliminate sharp edges and ensure worker safety. All Eagle coved-corner sink models come with a standard 10-inch backsplash element featuring a 1-inch upturn and tile edge for easy installation and “feathering” to any wall-splash surfaces. Custom sink configurations are also available.

Portable contamination monitors

Pall Corporation (NYSE: PLL) is introducing two new portable devices that reliably, simply and quickly measure fluid cleanliness, preventing unnecessary and costly machinery and equipment downtime. The PCM400 Portable Cleanliness Monitor and the PFC400W Portable Particle Counter both provide a simple, convenient way to ensure accurate results. The new Cleanliness Monitor can confirm cleanliness of almost every kind of hydraulic, lube or process fluid, even fluids that are dark, cloudy or contaminated by water or air. The monitor employs a novel design to measure the rate of pressure drop increase across two mesh discs (5 micron and 15 micron) either on-line or off-line. Automatic reversing of the flow path through the meshes provides a self-cleaning mechanism that flushes contaminants from the meshe s and acts to stave off mesh plugging and blockage. The PCM400 also measures fluid temperature and viscosity and has a hand-held, removable display/programmer with a touch screen interface. An optional water sensor can be incorporated for use with mineral-based fluids. The new PFC400W Portable Particle Counter measures the size and quantity of particulate in industrial fluid systems using a laser blockage technology with a water sensor to measure the amount of dissolved moisture in oil, which can help prevent erroneous counts and false positives due to the presence of emulsified or free water droplets. The technology of the PFC400W Portable Particle Counter provides a built-in system check that reduces the potential for inaccurate results. In addition, the counter can be programmed to perform single counts, time counts or continuous counting, and more than 50 sample point profiles can be stored in the unit.

The hand-held display and program can be detached from the unit to download data onto a computer without moving the whole unit. Also included are a temperature sensor, which provides additional supporting data, and a built-in pump for low pressure or bottle sampling.

Modular radiometer

Click here to enlarge image

Steril-Aire, Inc. has introduced a new Modular Radiometer System that provides an affordable, versatile and reliable means for measuring output of ultraviolet-C (UVC) devices. The system includes a separate display, sensor and logic controller, allowing the use of some or all components to fit the needs of the end-user. Applications for the UVC monitoring device include large or critical HVAC installations, and surface disinfection systems in manufacturing cleanrooms and food processing areas. The modular radiometer can measure UVC output in both microwatts/cm2 and in a user-defined pre-set percentage, thereby ensuring change-out of UVC lamps at optimum intervals, for maximum economy with no compromise in performance. NIST (National Institute of Standards Testing) traceable calibration resides within the sensor for ease of calibration. Only the sensor is needed for recalibration service, allowing the rest of the network to remain intact. In addition, the logic controller provides easy-to-read visual indication of relative power and UVC lamp output. It may be used with a portable (hand-held) and/or stationary display module to provide digital readout data of relative or absolute power output of the lamp in microwatts/cm2. The logic controller is easily connected to HVAC building management systems or programmable logic controllers (PLCs).
