EQ_PumpworksPumpWorks, a manufacturer of API 610 and ANSI Process Industrial Pumps, unveiled the PWA-SL sealless horizontal process pump, designed to take on all applications of a typical ANSI pump, while eliminating the need for mechanical seals and seal support systems. With this latest addition to the PWA product line, PumpWorks is leveraging its carbon-fiber filled PEEK (CFFP) containment shell to create a Sealless pump with ZERO eddy current losses, increasing efficiency and eliminating heat generation. The PWA-SL design allows for back pull out field upgrades of a wide range of existing ANSI pumps in a matter of minutes.


EQ_E2S-E2S Warning Signals offers the D1xB2 beacons, which has global approvals with SIL1 and SIL 2 compliance. Light sources are available as either Xenon or LED. Strobes are offered in 5, 10, 15 or 21 Joule Xenon variants with four-flash rate optionsa that are approved for private mode fire alarm use to UL1638. The high-power LED array features a steady mode for status applications, five-flash patterns and three remotely selectable alarm stages/channels. The lens design enhances the light output and is field replaceable, enabling beacons to be repurposed on site. Low in-rush and operating currents allow more units to be installed per circuit, simplifying system design and reducing cost.


EQ_remu2REMU offers 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 as 3 meters and depending on model, they can fit on single truck for transport without being disassembled first. Undercarriages can be equipped with a wide range of additional equipment, including side pontoons that allow them to operate entirely in deep water.


EQ_KhroneKrohne now offers PipePatrol, a comprehensive suite of software modules for multi-product pipelines for oil, gas, chemical or refined products. The software is configured in eight modules, covering leak detection, theft detection, stress monitoring, line break detection, tightness monitoring, batch tracking, pump monitoring and predictive modeling. The leak detection module provides E-RTTM-based (extended real-time transient model) leak detection and localization for liquids and gases.


CostTrax, powered by EquipmentWatch, is a new software solution for construction project owners that streamlines reporting, automatically flags questionable expenses and ensures reimbursement requests are 100% compliant. CostTrax is entirely web-based and requires no software download. It can be accessed from any computer or device. It leverages third-party data sets to verify rate compliance. Data integrations, such as ownership and operating costs, as well as local rental market pricing access provide new rate intelligence to prevent over payment.


EQ_HMiHMi introduced the 1301-Z1 a durable PC 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) operating temperature range as standard, a thin 5-inch profile and is lightweight at 47.3 pound (21.5 kg. It comes with the choice of operating voltages, remote telemetry, built-in diagnostics with Ethernet and 10/100/1000 Mbit/s and Wi-Fi as standard.


EQ_SPPSSPPS introduced the 100-hp, single-phase electric motor. The Belle Single-Phase Motor uses Written-Pole technology that is compatible with readily available single-phase utility services. This eliminates the need for phase converters or complex variable frequency drive installations.  It is ideal for powering equipment like pumps, compressors, injection wells, blowers, fans and dryers found in and oil and gas installations.

United Electric Controls

EQ_VanguardUnited Electric Controls offers a wireless gas detector that can reduce the cost of added leak-monitoring points by more than 50%. The Vanguard detector communicates through WirelessHART technology, which is currently the industry’s dominant non-proprietary wireless communication protocol. Vanguard’s field- interchangeable gas sensor modules detect methane (CH4), hydrogen sulfide (H2S) or carbon monoxide (CO). Data such as gas concentration, battery life and calibration are transmitted from the detector and integrated seamlessly with existing supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) or asset management (AMS) systems. Signals travel via WirelessHART to the gateway and commonly used Modbus and Ethernet communications.
