Emulsion polymer blender
Available with a solenoid, gear, or progressive cavity pump (you choose), the Polyfeeder's three-pass mixing system hydrates molecules without damaging polymer chains or clogging valves. Control options include manual; remote control with automatic startup and shut-down sequences; and a touch-screen graphic interface that offers six modes of operation in addition to the remote control.

Biological-based odor control
Although they come in diameters and heights down to 5 ft. and 10 ft., respectively, every EcoPure unit treats air streams of 100 to 100,000 cfm (cubic feet per minute) to remove 90% of all odors and virtually all hydrogen sulfide odor at lift and pump stations and dewatering and sludge-drying operations. Instead of hazardous chemicals or carbon adsorbents, the low-maintenance units combine bio trickling technology with carbon polishing. Units are available in a skid-mounted version.

Electric-powered pipe restoration
Plug this all-in-one robot into any 10-amp AC outlet to start patching leaks in sewer pipes with 45-degree turns. The system's digital camera swivels 300 degrees to give operators a clear view of the work area as they guide the cutting head through roots, sediment, and shards in preparation for the repair. Then switch to the unit's grouter, which mixes, injects, and packs two-component resin into the crack. JS Kanalrobotik. www.js-kanalrobotik.de.Circle 18.
Powered by a Honda GXV160 5.5-hp engine, this 28-in.-wide dumper carries quarter-ton payloads up slopes of up to 30 degrees. The hopper can be removed and converted into a flat bed transporter within minutes. It has four forward speeds and reverse as well as four-wheel drive. In addition to a loading ramp, extension sides, ball hitch, snow blade, and vacuum attachments, the electric lift pictured here carries up to 550 lbs. Muck Truck. www.mucktruckamerica.com.Circle 19.
Dampening system for spread-axle trailers
Though the Equalizer automatically distributes load weight proportionately in each axle grouping based on road conditions, operators can tweak and store settings to maximize loads. As pictured here, two-speed landing gear lifts attachments out of the way for backing up. The unit allows a 14-ft. 1-in. spread with 54-in. axle spacing; and a 14-ft. 7-in. spread with 60-in. axle spacing. Talbert Manufacturing Inc. www.talbertmfg.com.Circle 20.
Diesel generator cold-starts in any climate
The Jump Start Package produces 1,000 amps at 12 or 24V DC in one of three installation options: stand-alone radiator-cooled packages with or without an enclosure; remote radiator-cooled units that install in service vehicle compartments; and no supplied radiator cooling because the unit is plumbed through the truck's main engine to provide preheating capability. It comes standard with 6 kW of 120/240V AC to operate additional equipment such as power tools or lighting. Next Generation Power. www.nextgenerationpower.com.Circle 21.
Gross vehicle weight rating begins at 33,000 lbs.
Available as a truck or tractor, the Model 348 offers multiple suspension and vocational options in both single-and tandem-axle configurations as well as application-specific transmissions including a hybrid configuration designed for utility service. It has two PACCAR engine options: In the hybrid configuration, the PX-6 (260 hp) offers the highest horsepower-to-weight ratio available; and the PX-8 (240 hp to 360 hp) provides 1,050 lb.-ft. of torque for heavier loads. Side windows on the all-aluminum cab enhance visibility by 17%, while removable dash panels provide easy access to electrical and HVAC components. Peterbilt Motors Co. www.peterbilt.com.Circle 22.
Eliminates pretreatment surface cleaning
The EPX II applicator simultaneously meters, mixes, and applies a bead of Scotch-Weld toughened epoxy DP920 that cuts through surface oil to provide high shear and peel strength on metal-to-metal bonds. The low-odor adhesive cures at room temperature. 3M Industrial Adhesives & Tapes Div. www.3m.com/adhesives.Circle 23.
Handles traffic loads up to 100,000 lbs.
A quarter-inch layer of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) with skid-resistant coating adds 35 lbs. to a 255-lb. cast-iron dish for a final manhole cover weight of 290 lbs. In addition to minimizing steam-heat transfer, the hybrid cover deters would-be scrap metal thieves. It has a 31.2-in. diameter. Industrial Fiberglass Specialties Inc. www.ifs-frp.com.Circle 24.
Magnetic flow meter
As the newest addition to the Magnetoflow M-series, the M2000 measures almost any low-conductivity liquid, slurry, or paste with ±0.25% accuracy. It also can be used to retrofit existing Magnetoflow-Primo units. Badger Meter Inc. www.badgermeter.com.Circle 25.
