PDFM 5.1 Portable Doppler Flow Meter
Greyline’s new PDFM 5.1 Portable Doppler Flow Meter employs the latest technology in Doppler signal processing with an improved ability to filter out noise and produce flow measurement accuracy far greater than previously possible. Mount the ultrasonic sensor on the outside of a pipe and this new PDFM 5.1 Portable Doppler Flow Meter shows flow rate instantly. It works from outside metal or plastic pipes.  Simply enter pipe diameter with the 5-button keypad and the PDFM 5.1 will display, totalize and data log in your choice of gallons, liters or any engineering units. The PDFM 5.1 is recommended for wastewater, sludge, slurries, chemicals, and abrasives. Use it for flow troubleshooting, spot checks or balancing flow. For more information, email, or visit
AA Battery Powered Video Borescope
Some of the most important features companies look for when investing in a high-quality video borescope are portability and a reliable, long-lasting power source. RF System Lab, a world-wide leader in remote visual inspection technology, introduces the VJ-Advance video borescope; an extremely portable, high-end inspection camera that runs on standard AA batteries. The VJ-Advance video borescope from RF System Lab is compact in size and weighs in at only 23oz, making it ergonomic and extremely lightweight. Lower-quality borescopes are bulky and, in some cases, require access to an electrical outlet to operate. The VJ-Advance is easily transported and, while a direct AC-110 power adapter comes with the VJ-Advance for non-stop, continuous power, the video borescope’s main power source is standard AA batteries.

120 Peristaltic Pump
With development based on extensive feedback from customers, Watson-Marlow Pumps Group has launched its 120 cased peristaltic pump range. The 120 pumps are perfectly suited to single-use systems where no contamination can be accepted. Ultimately the 120 pumps have been developed to increase the low-flow capabilities of the company’s product range for applications in the biopharm sector. The market need for the 120 range is well understood, with customers voicing their own mantra, “keep it small, keep it simple.” As a result, Watson-Marlow has produced a pump that is focused on size, performance and ease-of-use. Biopharm processes require accurate and repeatable pumping that is easy to validate. With an exceptional 2000:1 speed range (speed accuracy ±1 percent) and a selection of USP Class VI tubes, the 120 delivers the flexibility and purity so vital to drug trials.
