MantaRay Portable Area-Velocity Flow Meter

The MantaRay Portable Area-Velocity Flow Meter measures flow in open channels, partially filled and surcharged pipes using an ultrasonic sensor. It's designed for monitoring stormwater, sewage, industrial effluent, irrigation water and natural streams. The MantaRay displays and datalogs flow rate and total flow and connects to samplers, SCADA and telemetry systems.

Calibration is simple: enter the pipe diameter or channel dimensions and the MantaRay automatically computes and displays the flow rate and total on its backlit LCD display. 
Mount the sensor at the bottom of the pipe or channel and hang the IP67 electronics case above the high water level.

  Field Mount Loop Powered Display Model LP400

The LP400 Loop Powered Display provides digital indication of a4/20 mA or 10/50 mA process loop signal. The display takes its operating power from the loop current and requires no other source of power.

Wide-ranging zero and span adjustments plus switch-selectable decimal point location and trailing zero allow the display to be calibrated in engineering units. A front panel Engineering Units/Loop Current switch permits an accurate check of the actual process loop current without recalibration.

Designed for field mounting, the LP400 is splashproof and corrosion resistant and operates from -40 to 185F (-40 to 85C). The circuit board is conformal coated for protection from humidity and contamination. Optional accessories include a pipe mounting kit(PMK400).

Stainless Steel Reversible Drum Angel Drum Pump

The Nex Flow™ 316L Stainless Steel Reversible Drum Angel/Drum Pump/Reversible Drum Vac is a maintenance free system to recover spilled liquids, coolant, sludge, tramp oil, waste water and other liquids using only compressed air. The compressed air system attaches easily to any closed head of a drum (30 or 55 US gallon, or 45 Imperial gallon or 205 liter drum).

The reversible feature allows you to fill or empty the drum in under two minutes with the simple turn of a knob. The flow rate can be controlled either by a shut-off valve or regulator, or by the knob itself. Drum should have a nominal wall thickness of 1.5mm (16 gauge) and in good condition to maintain integrity of system performance and safety. Using no electricity, these system last and last, unlike many electrical units that wear out quickly in harsh industrial environments. A built in safety feature prevents overfilling and spills.

 Valveless Piston Pump

Micropump® achieves a new level of accuracy and reproducibility with the Series PF Valveless Piston Pump. Designed for highly viscous and abrasive fluids, the Series PF pump maintains high-volumetric efficiency at elevated pressures for precise dispensing and/or continuous
metering in a compact package. With no valves, the Series PF virtually eliminates clogging and

Micropump uses the latest engineering tools and manufacturing equipment to produce the most innovative pumping solutions available. Products are developed using state-of-the-art CAD, Finite Element Analysis (FEA), and rapid prototyping tools to ensure the highest level of product quality and reliability.

ACCU-VENT Automatic Degassing Valves

ACCU-VENT Automatic Degassing Valves are designed to automatically vent gases and vapors that are commonly released from chemicals such as Sodium Hypochlorite or Hydrogen Peroxide or Sulfuric Acid.

  • CPVC (Corzan) and Viton corrosion resistant wetted materials of construction
  • specially designed float material automatically vents built up gases on system start up and under working pressure
  • can be used on feed side or discharge side of pump (or both)
  • standard 1/2" NPT threaded connections or optional 3/4" NPT available in other materials of construction for various gaseous liquid chemicals

Frigid-X™ Mini Spot Cooler

Mini Spot Cooler - Frigid-X™ Mini Spot Cooler is a low cost and maintenance free system which utilizes a vortex tube to produce cold air at one end. It is quiet and compact.

Mini Spot Cooler - Frigid-X™ Mini Spot Cooler is designed for small parts and produces a stream of 15 to 20 degree F (minus 9.5 to 7 degree C) of cold air to prevent heat buildup depending on inlet air temperature. It can improve tolerances in maching of small critical parts and increase production rates.

Melt Pressure & Temperature Gauge With Integral Thermocouple

ONEhalf20 Melt Pressure & Temperature Gauge CTG6 is the ideal choice for extrusion processors requiring a simple, reliable and accurate maintenance free melt pressure measurement. This rugged, totally self-contained Melt Pressure & Temperature Gauge is available in either 0-5,000 psi or 0-10,000 psi ranges. This Melt Pressure & Temperature Gauge allows the user to benefit from the improved efficiency and quality that goes along with melt pressure and temperature measurement at an affordable price.

ONEhalf20 Melt Pressure & Temperature Gauge CTG6 comes standard with a 6" rigid stem, 30" of flexible capillary, integral Type J thermocouple, abd a 1/2-20 UNF mounting thread.

Split Core Current Sensors

Split Core Current Sensors Model SC225 is our easiest to install fixed setpoint current operated solid state status sensor for status indication.

The one unit is pre-set to switch at 1.5 amps and will switch either AC or DC loads. This flexible design eliminates installation problems. It is not possible to incorrectly set the trip point or install a DC unit when an AC load should be switched.

Split Core Current Sensors Model SC225 design means that retrofit installations are simplified since power does not have to be shut off and connections do not have to be broken.

 Extruder Rupture Disks

ONEhalf20 Extruder Rupture Disks (Burst Plugs) are designed to provide emergency pressure relief on plastics processing machinery.

Extruder Rupture Disks (Burst Plugs) from ONEhalf20 are offered in a variety of lengths and configurations. Rupture disks are available with burst pressures from 1,500 up to 15,000 PSI.

ONEhalf20 Extruder Rupture Disks (Burst Plugs) are offered with several mounting thread styles that are commonly found on plastics processing machinery.

Pump Controllers

Ktech Industrial Products Inc., Pump Controllers are installed to automatically operate a pump to control the level of a liquid in a tank. Pump Controllers are used in conjunction with Ktech Multi-Level Float Switches.

Use two contacts to start and stop the pump. A relay circuit switches power to the fractional horsepower pump motor or to the three-phase contactor of a large pump motor. Similarly, the switch contacts can be used to operate solenoid valves.

Frigid-X™ Cabinet Panel Coolers

Frigid-X™ Cabinet Panel Coolers and Cabinet Enclosure Coolers for electronic control panels provide a low cost method of both purging and cooling electrical and electronic control panels by using a stainless steel vortex tube to create cold air from ordinary compressed air.

Frigid-X Cabinet Panel Coolers and Cabinet Enclosure Coolers are compact and can be installed in minutes through a standard electrical knockout. There are virtually no moving parts.

ISPac Intrinsic Safety Isolators

The 2-channel compact isolators ISpac are equipped with detachable terminals available in screw terminal, spring cage terminal and insulation cutting terminal versions. Depending on the particular application, the devices snap singly onto DIN rails and can either be centrally supplied from the common power supply (pac-Bus) or simply and conveniently connected to the automation system using the pac-Carrier.

The pac-Bus supplies the isolators with power and issues line errors occurring in the inputs and outputs via a floating contact. In addition to this collective messaging system, each individual device signals line errors by means of a red LED and an indicator contact.

With its choice of 8 or 16 slots, the pac-Carrier makes for an elegant automation system integration solution. Connecting to diverse automation systems is made easier by system-specific circuit board adapters equipped with matching plugs.

Celesco MTA Miniature Cable Extension Position Transducer

The MTA is part of Celesco’s miniature line of cable-extension position transducers that is perfect for short-ranged testing and control applications where space is at a premium. This transducer uses a high-cyle conductive plastic potentiometer to provide a precision voltage divider feedback signal for measurement ranges of 3 or 5 inches full stroke.
