Bacharach Gas Detection Systems

Series 4600 GAS Plus universal gas transmitters from Bacharach Gas Detection Systems reduce overall gas detection system cost and complexity. Its toxic model automatically configures to any of EIT's 25+, intrinsically-safe, gas specific electrochemical "smart" sensors that retain configuration data and eliminate warm-up time. Model 4688-IR can specifically detect propane, butane or 15 other gases in virtually any environment. The advanced infrared-based sensor has no mechanical parts to wear out, does not require oxygen for operation, and its life is not reduced by gas exposure. RS-232/485 simplifies wiring and utilizes the MODBUS RTU protocol. Programmable integral alarm relays provide excellent operational flexibility, along with a time delay feature that reduces nuisance activations. Circle #201

Clock Spring

Pipe support systems from Clock Spring eliminate crevice corrosion, prevent abrasive wear, do not require a certified installer, and are fast and easy to install. Clock Springs use two full encirclement wraps of a unidirectional fiberglass composite that are bonded to the pipe with a patented adhesive to eliminate crevice corrosion and abrasive wear at pipe supports. Intended for use with pipelines at pipe support locations with up to 30 percent wall loss. Circle #202

The RIPAC system provides increased accuracy to estimate spent and remaining service life compared to plain coupon exposure. Circle #205


Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc. (GSSI) has introduced the PathFinder, a ground penetrating radar (GPR) system designed to map underground pipes and utilities quickly and accurately. GSSI has eliminated the time-consuming area stakeout and frustrating line-by-line analysis of data associated with the traditional GPR technique of establishing a grid prior to an evaluation. Instead, the PathFinder continuously collects multiple polarization subsurface data while the LaserGrid positioning system monitors its position to one-inch accuracy. Data processing automatically detects pipes and other underground utilities and presents the findings in a 3-D map of the survey area. An optional satellite controlled ground positioning system is also available. Circle #206

The chassis provides scanner power supply and pneumatic connections, as well as 10Base T hub circuitry that supports remote Ethernet-based NetScanner products. Circle #207

Total Flow

Total Flow's TOTALFLOW LevelMaster Intelligent Digital Level Sensor is designed for custody transfer accuracy in demanding level measurement applications. When the LevelMaster is combined with the RTU, a wide library of data gathering and site automation applications are available. The TOTALFLOW LevelMaster has been widely deployed in oil and gas, water, wastewater, flood warning and chemical applications. It allows for two floats to be used on the same sensor assembly to measure levels of two different density fluids in the same tank. Each float can accurately measure the level of its respective fluid over the full vertical range of the sensor. Circle #208


A new pipe bending machine, the Centurion, can bend all types of 6- to 20-inch OD pipe. Offered by CRC-Evans, the Centurion has hydraulic pumps which operate at 2,500 psi and boost cylinder force and bending speed by 82 percent. A wide frame and larger bending cylinders let the Centurion easily handle even "extra strength" pipe with an outside diameter of 20.87 inches - the large end of the metric range. With an unobstructed view of the die area, the Centurion gives operators "hands-on" control of the pipe-bending process. Circle #209

OdorEyes Technologies

A new odorizer that combines the benefits of pulse bypass odorizers with the latest in PLC technology is now available from OdorEyes Technologies. The Millennium Series One Pulse Odorizer has no moving pans and no pumps. Since there is no pump to fail and no seals to leak, the odorizer is maintenance-free and allows for improved environment control. The new odorizer can be operated over a wide flow range to fit any size system. Tank level measurement is accurate to within a hundredth of an inch, and there is no contact with the odorant except at the time the tank is filled. Its alarm data log gives a date/time stamp for all alarm occurrences and their clearing, showing deviations from normal operations as well as response time to detected problems. Circle #210
