Brooks Instrument added the GT1600 Series of glass tube variable area flowmeters to its family of variable area flowmeter products. The flowmeter features high-quality design and materials, such as 316 stainless steel construction and a polycarbonate shield. The adjustable, transparent scale improves readability and allows for offset correction to compensate for process variation. In addition, the process connection can be rotated 360 degrees so users can view from all directions. The GT1600 is available with a variety of connections to fit existing piping arrangements or mount to a panel or wall. It can also work as a drop-in retrofit for the Brooks Instrument GT1000, GT1300 and Full-View 1100 Series of flowmeters, which have been widely used for decades.   


The Enerpac HMT 13000 Interchangeable Torque Wrench is an extension to the previously introduced HMT product line. Like the other models in the HMT series, the HMT 13000 offers the same advantages and low cost of ownership. The series is also cost effective because the cassettes have up to 25% less internal components than other manufacturers, reducing the risk of failure and cost of repair. It is designed to be interchangeable with different tools in the market. When it comes to speed, it offers best-in-class output to weight ratio and is up to 25% faster than leading competitors. The HMT 13000 is designed for low-profile applications only and suits hex sizes from 2 7/16-inch to 4 5/8-inch AF (62 mm to 115 mm AF). The HMT 13000 delivers output torques from 1349 to 13,489 foot/pound (1829 to 18,289 Nm).  


Best Purging Systems (BPS) Corporation offers UL-listed National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 496 Type Y&Z Purging and Pressurization Units for enclosures up to 250 cubic feet in Class I and II Division 2, Group A, B, C & D Hazardous Locations. These units provide all required controls indicators and alarms to meet code. Applications include large refinery control panels, special analyzers, portable laboratory equipment and label printers. Type Y&Z Purging and Pressurization solution highlights include the following: suitable for Class I and II, Division 2, Group A, B, C and D hazardous locations up to 250 cu. Ft.; meet/exceed NEC – NFPA 70, NFPA 496, EN 50016, and IEC 60079-02; The units are available in universal, vertical and horizontal configurations, and they are easily mount to any side of protected enclosure and through a panel cutout.  

Esco Tool  

Esco Tool offers a portable, inner-diameter clamping pipe beveller with a variable-speed electric motor for use on-site. The Prepzilla Millhog Clamping End Prep Tool features an electric motor with increased power and variable speeds from 9 to 31 rpm for continuous use and faster beveling. Equipped with a three-blade holder that can bevel any angle, face and bore simultaneously, the tool can produce precision end preps on hard stainless steels and highly alloyed pipe. It only requires one mandrel and eight sets of clamps for its entire range. The tool is designed for pipe ranging from a 1.575-inch (40-mm) inner diameter (ID) to an 8.62-inch (219-mm) outer diameter (OD). It has motor specifications of 230 V, 3.08 hp (2,300 W), 50 to 60 Hz, and has dual-opposed tapered roller bearings to support the motor.  


Pressure and temperature calibration equipment company Ralston Instruments released the Field Gauge LC20 line of pressure gauges. The gauge is a follow-up to the LC10 line and increases accuracy, along with increasing customization options. With a ±0.1% of full-scale accuracy, the LC20 is ideal for use as a calibration reference. It maintains its accuracy across a wide pressure and temperature range, eliminating the need to carry multiple conventional gauges. The LC20 offers a wireless option, which allows monitoring of remote tests and include FieldLab Desktop software. The device is available in 11 pressure ranges from 5 psi/35 kPa to 10,000 psi/70 mpa, a compound vacuum/pressure gauge from ±15 psi, and a digital vacuum gauge measuring up to 30 inHg/760 mbar.  


Sensirion offered its next-generation miniature CO2 sensor series, the SCD4x. The device is built on the photo-acoustic sensing principle and the patented PASens and CMOSens Technology enables the small sensor size to combine with high performance. The integrated humidity and temperature sensor enable on-chip signal compensation and additional RH and T outputs. Also, the large supply voltage range (2.4 V-5.5 V), and adjustable power consumption make the SCD4x increases savings. The kit contains a four-pin jumper wire cable that enables fast prototyping, through integration into existing platforms like Arduino and Raspberry Pi.  

Sensor Networks  

Sensor Networks Inc. (SNI) released its new SensorScan DHT-400 Ultrasonic Transducer. The device measures wall thickness of high-temperature, rough ID and OD surfaces to detect metal loss due to corrosion and erosion. The DHT-400 can operate intermittently at temperatures ranging from 0 to 932°F (-17.8 to 500°C) and continuously from 0 to 400°F (-17.8 to 204°C). Typical applications for the DHT-400 include use with most commercially available digital thickness gauges or flaw detectors, measuring wall thickness of pipes, tanks and oil and gas assets.
