Deliquescent Desiccant 4UF
Van Air Systems has been the leader in deliquescent tablet production for over 70 years and offers several well-known deliquescent desiccant tablets. Van Air Systems would like to introduce a new high performance deliquescent desiccant known as 4UF/Gas Dry Ultimate. It was developed specifically to meet low dew point requirements when other desiccants or glycols are ineffective. Natural gas can be very difficult to process at low pressures, low flow rates, and/or low temperatures. For these unique applications, use GasDry Ultimate/4UF to dry natural gas to low water content.
Gas Dry Ultimate/4UF has advantages over other drying methods in many applications. It will provide moisture equilibrium down to 4 percent RH and will work at temperatures from below freezing to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. It is capable of providing up to 7 lbs moisture/MMSCF gas at temperatures below 32 degrees while operating at a very low 15 psig.

With operator safety paramount during loading and unloading of road tankers, Emco Wheaton’s new TODO Emergency Break-Away Coupling for bottom-loading applications will eliminate damages and risk of spillage while ensuring operators are protected against drive-away incidents.
The tried and tested TODO 4” Aluminium Break-Away has been specifically adapted for bottom loading arm applications with the addition of a TTMA flange. Not only can the device be applied on new loading arms, it also means the break-away can be retrofitted to bottom hose loading arms that currently incorporate this type of flange in their construction.
The addition of the flange and use of the break-away coupling gives operators peace of mind knowing that should a drive-away incident occur, the break-away will disconnect and minimize risk of product loss. Equally important, the break-away would take the force of the incident thereby protecting the API coupler and loading arm. By keeping the design concept simple, the break-away coupler can be re-set on site after an event with an easy to install kit so any downtime is reduced.
Emco Wheaton North American Product Manager for TODO Holly Damude said, “The consequences of drive-away incidents are very serious without break-away protection. Our new TODO TTMA break-away coupler removes the human error element when transferring dangerous fluids.”
The 4” Aluminium TODO TTMA Break-away consists of two identical halves joined together by a series of 3-mm break-pins, allowing the break-away to be configured to separate at a defined load. Should an excessive load be placed on the loading arm, the pins break and the break-away separates, automatically closing the internal valves. The break-away can then be reset onsite using an Emco Wheaton aftermarket kit.
This new variant of the break-away coupler is designed to operate reliably in hazardous conditions, ensuring that liquid is delivered without spillage or contamination, at all times protecting the driver and the environment.
Bluetooth Dataloggers for Corrosion Monitoring
<<<<< insert image 10NewAndNoteworthy_Cosasco >>>>>
Cosasco has released three new Bluetooth dataloggers for monitoring corrosion and erosion rates. The M-200, ER-200, and LPR-200 can be used in remote locations where direct online operation is not possible.
The ER-200 electrical resistance (ER) datalogger reads all ER standard and ER temperature probes. The M-200 Microcor ER datalogger reads all Microcor corrosion and erosion probes. The LPR-200 linear polarization resistance datalogger measures corrosion rate, pitting tendency and temperature in water systems.
All three dataloggers feature Bluetooth technology that allows users to download stored corrosion rate information collected from the dataloggers from up to 60 feet away with a handheld transfer unit (TU-500). Readings from the TU-500 are easily downloaded to a PC running Cosasco Data Offline corrosion management software, which then provides graphical displays of data for immediate identification of corrosion upsets. Multiple probes and additional corrosion related parameters can be reviewed simultaneously.
The dataloggers are certified intrinsically safe (IECEx/ ATEX/ CCSAUS) for operation in hazardous areas, and feature NEMA 4X IP66 rated enclosures for reliable operation.
