Mermaid Data Logger
Maid Labs is an innovative company and developer of the Mermaid system. Made of two parts, a data logger and software, the Mermaid system is used throughout North America to provide critical data to regulators and to understand the daily activities of individual lift stations. The Mermaid system calculates average flow rates within 2 percent of a standard magnetic flow meter, while providing critical data on the electrical performance and efficiency of the lift station in the process. The Mermaid software provides detailed data reports on the events, flow, infiltration, inflow and outflow, motor, analog, monthly and flow amounts, all this is easily downloaded to Excel and presented in user friendly charts and graphs.

FS10A Analyzer Flow Switch/Monitor
The FS10A is a universal flow switch and monitor specifically designed for gas and liquid process analyzer sampling systems. The FS10A is a fast responding, highly repeatable sensor which installs easily into a standard tube tee fitting or new SP76 (NeSSI) modular manifold. The FS10A utilizes proven thermal dispersion flow measurement technology with FCI proprietary equal mass sensing to achieve outstanding sensitivity and repeatability. The instrument’s wetted parts are superior corrosion-resistant 316L stainless steel with Hastelloy-C sensor tips. The sensor element has no moving parts to foul, clog, or maintain, which ensures continuous reliability and no maintenance costs. There are no cavities, orifices, or dead-legs to trap or contaminate samples, which preserves sample integrity and faster system sampling times. The instrument provides a top-mounted, flow rate monitoring LED array for at-a-glance visual indication of proper flow rate to the analyzer or sampling system, that an alarm/trip has been reached, and as indication the unit is powered and operating.

EL 24 Elastomer Feed Roller
Automatik Plastic Machinery has developed a new elastomer feed roller specially designed to meet high demands in terms of abrasion and thermal loading. This new roller, designated EL 24, features a high thermal load capacity of up to 338 degrees Fahrenheit (170 degrees Celsius), well above that of conventional rollers in use. The EL 24 also offers better frictional resistance and compression behavior than conventional elastomer feed rollers. Worthy of notice is the fact that the new roller is white. In addition, and importantly for the semiconductor industry, it is also silicon-free. Ever more specialized materials are leading to a steady rise in demand for feed rollers adapted to the materials being processed. Long-time tests by a variety of Automatik customers imposing very high demands and subject to very high loading on feed rollers have demonstrated that using the EL 24 results in four to five times longer life.

This new architecture enables the drives to control virtually any type of AC motor, and interface across all major fieldbus protocols, as well as remote monitoring solutions. Compatibility is key, with users enjoying a host of functions that make selection, installation, set up and maintenance easy; safety features are integrated. For more information, visit
A Series Pressure Switch
A tough operating environment is no match for Ashcroft’s A Series, a compact stainless steel multi-application pressure switch. All 316 stainless steel construction, a weatherproof IP67 enclosure and an operating temp from -40 to 212 degrees Fahrenheit (40 to 100 degrees Celsius) make this compact switch the ideal choice for a wide variety of industrial and OEM installations. The Ashcroft A-Series miniature pressure switches are designed for tough applications where conventional designs often don’t measure up. A rugged enclosure gives uncompromising protection. Materials of construction have been selected for long life. Precision snap acting micro switches are featured and fully encased to prevent moisture from corroding switch contacts. The switch, depending on range, is either an all welded 316 stainless steel diaphragm sealed piston design or a direct acting piston design sealed with a Buna-N or Viton O-ring. Ideal for pressure alarm, shutdown, or control on heavy vehicles, machine tools, electronic equipment, engines, compressors, food and beverage processing equipment, and wherever size is a consideration or equipment is being downsized. To learn more about the specifications and agency approvals, visit or call 800.328.8258.
500 Grinder Pumps
Moyno 500 grinder pumps feature compact, lightweight designs that combine an efficient solids reduction unit with a high performance progressing cavity pump. Ideal for marine septic systems, environmental clean up, marine oil spills, industrial wastes, and raw sewage transfer, Moyno 500 grinder pumps offer a variety of innovative design characteristics. The replaceable carbide tips on the cast iron cutter disc rotate against a stationary, hardened tool-steel cutter ring. Stringy fibers and other debris are reduced to regular particle sizes which prevent ragging and blockages in downstream process equipment. Moyno 500 grinder pumps include a molded, elastomeric wobble stator that increases the compression fit with the rotor for superior volumetric efficiency.
