REMU offers new E-Series Model excavators designed for the challenging environments faced by wetland construction contractors. The amphibious equipment features pontoon undercarriages can be hydraulically adjusted to as narrow a width as 3 meters, depending on model, they can fit on single truck for transport without being disassembled first. Under carriages can be equipped with a wide range of additional equipment, including side pontoons that allow each to operate entirely in deep water.


Emerson is offering new meters and probes: the CMF-110 and CMF-118 flexible clamp meters and the FC-110 and FC-118 flexible clamp current probes. Available in either 10-inch or 18-inch flexible coil offerings, CMF series meters are stand-alone devices that measure true RMS AC current, AC voltage, resistance, frequency and inrush current. The current probes are compatible with most meters that measure AC millivolts. The FC Series add measurement capability of up to 3,000 amps to existing meters.


E2S Warning Signals launched the flameproof STEx warning device, which encompasses audible, visual and combined warning devices within 316L stainless steel enclosures to protect against harsh environments where corrosion is a problem. The units are IECEx- and ATEX-approved for Zones 1 and 2 for use in hazardous areas containing both gas or dust. The alarm horn sounders are available with 64 alarm tone frequency patterns and outputs of up to 123dB(A). The STExB beacon light source is available in a 10, 15 or ultra-bright 21 Joule Xenon strobe. Stainless steel blanking plugs are provided with all units. Cable entries are M20, ½-inch NPT, ¾-inch NPT or M25. All external hardware, such as beacon dome guards and mounting brackets, is made of  316 (A4) stainless steel.


Romet Limited introduced the AdEM CLICK, a direct mount index. The smart module attaches to any type of rotary gas meter to provide real-time measurements for utilities. New models, each with tamperproof, weather-resistant design can – depending on the design – factor in pressure, temperature and super-compressibility when taking measurements. The AdEM modules allow utilities to account for higher pressure natural gas assets and reduce lost-and-unaccounted-for assets


Chalmit launched its Protecta X LED luminaire, which is up to 50% brighter than traditional linear lighting. It has user-definable light distribution, a lifespan of over 120,000 hours at 25° C, and optional battery stick, meaning in can be installed in half the time. The Protecta X avoids overheating issues. Even at 60° C, it has a lifespan of 90,000 hours. Its LEDs and driver are housed in separate enclosures extending the life of both components. Air gaps between the luminaire and central body prevent the collection and dust and particulates. Made of recyclable marine grade aluminum, heat is conducted away from the central body. The lighting has an ambient temperature range of -40° C to +60° C in standard models and -25° C to +60°C in emergency variants.


Dresser Natural Gas Solutions (NGS) Blackhawk pressure control fittings have attained the requirements of CSA Z662: Oil & Gas Pipeline Systems, allowing for expansion into the Canadian market. The internal assessment eliminates the need for pipeline owners to assess the design for themselves. The fittings range is 4 to 24 inches in ASME Pressure Classes 150, 300 and 600.


HMi introduced the 1301-Z1, a durable PC that leads its class with extreme usability and toughness, combined with engineered design. Slim and lightweight with a super-bright 19-inch, 1,000 NIT display, the PC is suitable for Zone 1 areas. It features a wide -40° C to +60° C (-40° F to +140° F) standard operating temperature range, a thin 5-inch profile and is lightweight at 47.3 pound (21.5 kg). It comes with a choice of operating voltages, remote telemetry, built-in diagnostics with Ethernet and 10/100/1000 Mbit/s and standard Wi-Fi.

WFS Equip_Seatooth

WFS Technologies offers Seatooth Pipe-Logger, an integrated pipe-line, umbilical, risers and flowlines temperature monitoring and data transfer solution. It can provide real-time monitoring for offshore and subsea assets. It has been previously used to reduce the risk and operational costs associated with coiled tube fatigue. The device contains temperature sensors for process and seawater measurement, integrated data logger, integrated data analysis functions. It has an  integrated battery with a 5-year life based on hourly readings, integrated magnetic clamps for ease of deployment and retrieval by ROV or diver.
