Q.E.D. ENVIRONMENTAL SYSTEMS, INC.
The Snap Sampler system (US Patent 7,178,415), winner of the National Ground Water Association’s prestigious Equipment Design Award for safety, efficiency, and ease of operation, employs a unique double-ended bottle design with “snap” sealing caps that captures a sample under in-situ conditions using a simple mechanical or pneumatic trigger at the surface. The integrity of the sample is maintained all the way through analysis at the laboratory without exposure to air or potential contaminants. Samples are representative of ground water chemistry using a simple passive sampling technique, eliminating well purging labor and purge water management.

The fault-tolerant and self-recovering XAE is designed for reliability and minimal maintenance, with metal gearing and an explosion-proof enclosure. Simple calibration capabilities and an intuitive user interface facilitate ease-of-use. The XAE is purpose-built for PulsaPro pumps, and it is designed to meet the needs of international industrial markets. For more information, visit www.pulsa.com.
MM Series AODD Pumps
Almatec MM Series pumps are ideal for food and beverage applications because they feature food-grade wetted materials and a construction that enables clean-in-place (CIP) and sanitize-in-place (SIP) capabilities. The design of MM Series pumps also incorporates soft redirections without rotating parts and shaft seals in the product chamber, a critical consideration for hygienic operations. All the pump’s materials comply with the hygienic standards of the FDA, and pumps equipped with PTFE diaphragms and ball valves also comply with EC1935/2004. In addition, MM Series pumps conform to ATEX requirements according to the 2014/34/EU directive. For more information, visit almatec.de.
BELL & GOSSETT
Parallel Sensorless Controller
As the HVAC industry seeks energy-saving technologies, parallel pumping has emerged as a proven method of improving efficiency in pumping systems with higher control heads. With the advent of sensorless pump control technology, commercial and industrial water pumping systems can be optimized for even greater system efficiency. Innovative sensorless pump controllers like Bell & Gossett’s new Parallel Sensorless Controller have the ability to manage multiple pump output without a wired differential pressure transducer (DPT). Eliminating the need for an external sensor reduces installation costs and related maintenances costs, such as inspections, replacement, and recalibration.

Landtec® Biomethane 3000 Fixed Analyzer
The Biomethane 3000 provides continual measurement of methane, carbon dioxide and oxygen with a user-definable fourth gas reading of hydrogen sulfide, hydrogen or carbon monoxide. The analyzer provides quality readings above the 95 percent methane level and below the one percent oxygen level at first stage production. Customizable to site requirements, the Biomethane 3000 protects operators from oxygen issues while preventing the risk of injecting poor-quality gas into the grid network. With its modular design, the Biomethane 3000 enables hot swapping for serviceability and onsite maintenance, minimizing operational downtime.

Stainless Steel Wastewater Air Valves
Val-Matic’s Stainless Steel Wastewater Air Valves perform two important functions in a piping system: they maintain system design efficiency and provide system protection. Exhausting and admitting air keeps the system from restricted flow reducing pumping costs and reduces the potential for destructive surges and water hammer that can collapse a pipeline. The seamless cast stainless steel body prevents corrosion and increases integrity which is lightweight to facilitate installation. The valve design provides ease of maintenance and years of trouble-free operation in the harshest conditions. The cast stainless steel bodies are recommended for severe service where hydrogen sulfide or industrial chemicals produce accelerated corrosion in iron. For more information, visit www.valmatic.com.
