A line of pipe and tubing hangers follow the design principles of ASME BPE-2002. The hangers are available as wall, floor or ceiling mount assemblies as well as multi-run stacked configurations, in a size range of 1/2-inch through 6-inch for pipe, tube, copper tubing and conduit. Made from 316 stainless steel with a 35 Ra finish, the design has round and smooth surfaces that are cleanable and drainable. All materials are FDA compliant, suitable for wash-down and compatible with steam cleaning.
The enclosing frame and media pack supports of the updated V-bank Durafil air filter are now of high-impact plastic that reduces the weight of the filter, is not subject to corrosion and resists damage during shipping and installation. The filter is available in four high efficiencies: MERV 11, 13, 14 and 16 based on ASHRAE 52.2. The MERV 16 (99 percent efficiency) filter, which uses a 95 percent DOP-rated media and has a rated initial resistance to airflow of 0.80 in w.g. at 2000 cmf, is suited to critical applications that require high sub-micron particle capture efficiency.
The battery-operated Ground Gard Traveler enables users to have constant ESD protection away from the work bench utilizing the company's single-conductor, impedance-detecting technology in a lightweight case. In addition to a visual indicator for low battery, a chirp alarm, whose rate increases at the battery discharges, gives users ample time to replace the 9-volt battery. Various models are available, including units with or without an ESD wrist strap and coil cord and one used in high-noise environments, which incorporates vibration notification along with an audible alarm when proper grounding has been compromised.
Mass flow meter
The integration of MODBUS communications into the Innova-Mass multivariable vortex mass flow meters offers higher accuracy, greater flexibility, reliable performance and cost savings on installation. The user interface features direct import of meter serial number, totalized flow plus units, mass and volumetric flow plus units, velocity and Reynold's number of the flowing fluid, pressure and temperature of the flowing fluid and fluid properties, including density and viscosity. Full implementation of Hart Protocol provides access to all measured variables and programming menus and permits field-configuration without disruption of the existing measurement signal.

Pipings and fittings
A new line of Halar pipings and fittings is intended for aggressive chemical applications. According to the company, Halar, which is composed of a copolymer of ethylene and chlorotrifluoroethylene, has excellent chemical resistance in most acids, bases and solvents.
IonAccess and IonMonitor software products remotely monitor and control multiple AeroBar ionizers and sensors connected to the company's 5225 IM6T interface modules. The software provides serial or TCP/IP connections to devices and enables fast integration of electrostatics control into equipment makers' higher-level control systems.

The E3 aluminum bolted pump incorporates an air valve system that eliminates stalling, icing and the need to lubricate. The pump's leak-free bolted design reportedly provides a greater positive seal, effectively handling large volumes of fluid in applications such as bulk chemical transfer, resins transfer, wastewater treatment, filter press applications and tanker car unloading. The unit features a maximum particle clearance of 3/4-inch (19.1 mm). Flange connections that conform to both ANSI 150# and DIN #80 standards enable the pump to handle a flow rate that is adjustable to 230 gpm (871 lpm).

With a flat belt width of 12 mm, the CS20 Series can be installed in locations with small gaps or narrow spaces. Standard belt widths are available up to 200 mm, with lengths between pulleys from 132 mm to 1000 mm. Single-belt designs have capacities to 1000 grams; multiple-belt designs to 4000 grams.
The EchoTherm model CB20 constant temperature chilling/heating mini-circulator is for use with small volume sample holders such as water-jacketed cuvettes for spectrophotometers and electrophoresis baths. The unit is Peltier based for heating and chilling and requires no compressors or CFCs. According to the company, the product has a temperature range from 4.0° C to 70.0° C, accurate to +/-0.1° C and readable/settable to 0.1° C, and a variable pumping range from 0 to 300 ml/minute settable in 1-percent increments. The reservoir volume is 1000 ml. The unit comes with a transparent reservoir cover, 3/32-inch diameter by 4-inch long stainless-steel platinum RTD probe with 3-foot long cable (a 6-foot extension is available for reaching remote samples).

Staff is kept safe from contact with the container and its contents by a lid that automatically opens with the wave of a hand. After a few seconds the lid automatically closes. The bright orange color of the Scienceware Touch Free Automatic Waste Can and prominent biohazard warning label announce the potentially dangerous contents and aid in separating and isolating hazardous waste. The 7.3-gallon container's small footprint enables it to be placed near or under a lab bench or in any environment generating biological or biohazard waste.
