COMPOSITE SLURRY PUMP The Pentair Southern Cross SX40 composite slurry pump is designed as a lightweight unit for the transfer of light slurries and being a 100% composite vessel material allows for pumping of extremely aggressive and corrosive slurry products. Recently, Pentair Southern Cross conducted a field trial of its SX40 Solids Vacuum pump in conjunction with its regional authorised reseller M/s Hydroflo Solutions, Cardiff at the Steel Mills in Mayfield, NSW. The task at hand was to provide a simple and safe solution to emptying several sumps containing steel scale within the mill process plant. Up until the time of the field trial, the steel mill operators were manually transferring the scale and were starting to experience workplace health issues. The SX40 air-operated pump provided the solution to emptying the sumps. Requiring only 80 cfm of air at an operating pressure of 100 psi, the site personnel were able to use the stainless steel pick-up wand to suck up the scale product and transfer into a mobile hopper for discharge off-site. Due to the lightweight and portability features of the pump, it can be deployed at several of the steel mill’s problem sumps. Pentair Australia www.pentairwater.com.au

ULTRASONIC LEVEL SENSOR The Model ULSM Ultrasonic Level Sensor provides noncontact, continuous ultrasonic level measurement of fluids for medium-range applications. Ultrasonic technology paired with automatic temperature compensation provides accurate measurements in almost all conditions. Suitable applications include dirty, corrosive or sticky fluids; bulk containers; and sump and process tanks. The product has failsafe logic that is easily configured to custom applications via free software, removing the need for target calibration. Using the software, the sensor can be programmed to transmit an output signal as well as set the four relays for control applications. Other features include selectable deadband, narrow beam width and short deadband. The rugged design comes with a NEMA 6P submersible enclosure rating to ensure a long-lasting unit.
