Via internal system voltage, WAGO Corporation’s new 2-Channel Relay Output Module directly activates Intrinsically Safe circuits, powering actuators in hazardous locations. Unlike traditional solid-state hazardous location relays, the unique 750-538 carries two changeover contacts for activating Zone 0/20 and 1/21 devices, for example, relays, solenoid valves, contactors or optical/acoustic signal generators. This supports diverse hazardous location applications in oil and gas processing, wastewater treatment, brewing/distillation, and more. The electro-mechanical 750-538’s switching voltage/current is rated 125 VAC/0.5 A and 30 VDC/1 A; the maximum permissible limits depend on the actuator’s location per EN 60079-11. 750-538’s Normal Open (NO) contacts are electrically isolated; on-board LEDs indicate relay switching status. 750-538 joins WAGO’s growing EX i portfolio of nearly 20 Intrinsically Safe Modules and power supplies. Highly modular digital, analog and specialty modules are available 1-, 2-, 4- or 8-channels—users only purchase the I/O needed. All EX i devices are compatible with WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM buscouplers, PLCs and IPCs. For additional information, visit www.wago.us, call 800.DIN.RAIL, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
LNG Mounting Kits and Spool Pieces
In one of Valvekits’ latest international contracts, the company is supplying over 250 valve mounting kits and spool pieces for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility under construction in America. Designed and manufactured at the Valvekits UK factory, the mounting kits and spool pieces will provide adaptation for fluid power actuators on ball valves ranging in size from 3 to 42 inches (75 to 1000 millimeters), including a number of cryogenic valves. The Valvekits products are being supplied in batches to Rotork’s group facilities in Bilbao, to meet the production schedule of the Spanish valvemaker Poyam Valves, located at nearby Idiazabal. The final destination is a new LNG production plant being built by Bechtel International Inc. for Cheniere Energy Inc. on the Sabine River in Cameron Parish, Louisiana. All Valvekits mounting kits are manufactured in accordance with their BSI ISO9001:2008 certification. Designs are produced in-house using the latest Solid Edge software and manufactured with machinery that is the focus of a continuous investment plan to keep the company at the forefront of technology.

HAYWARD FLOW CONTROL
Pleated Filter Cartridges
Hayward Flow Control announces the expansion of its pleated filter cartridges to complement our industry leading CFLV Series filters. Manufactured in either polypropylene or cellulose media, the new high efficiency cartridges provide high surface filtration and comprehensive service life. the cartridges are designed for use with Hayward’s CFLV and MFLV cartridge adapter kits. The Hayward pleated filter cartridges offer the right product choice for multiple liquid purification requirements. The high-tech pleated media provides excellent particulate removal as well as low pressure drops. The greater surface area ensures longer service life than most filter bags due to higher flow and particulate holding capacity. All cartridges feature DOE Plastisol PVC End-Caps for maximum sealing capability. Typical applications or installations include but not limited to waste and water treatment, chemical processing, aquatic and animal life support systems, manufacturing processes, marine and off-shore filtration applications and systems.

Bladeless Single Channel Impeller
ABBA’s “bladeless” single channel impeller will dramatically reduce or virtually eliminate clogging problems associated with unscreened raw sewage. The single channel or “bladeless” impeller that typically replaces a standard 2 vane impeller is best suited for smaller pumps, 3 inches up to 5 inches discharge, and is an ideal solution for pump stations with low sewage flows as well as unmanned pump stations. ABBA’s “bladeless” single channel impeller will handle 10 to 25 times more solids compared to a standard 2 vane impeller and is designed to efficiently handle stringy, fibrous trash. Benefits include reduced clogging problems, higher efficiency at low flows, less maintenance time required, and improved reliability. Also, retrofits are available for many pump makes and models and it is cost effective when compared to other solutions for clogging.
