Charlotte Pipe’s Edge HP Iron is a specially coated cast iron pipe and fittings system designed for aggressive DWV applications where enhanced protection may be needed, such as hospitals, casinos and commercial kitchens.
Watts announces the addition of the ArmorTek advanced coating system to its ductile-iron backflow preventer valves. This advanced patent-pending technology provides three layers of protection to create an effective barrier, dramatically increasing resistance to corrosion, Watts explains. ArmorTek provides an advanced primer, which contains an electrochemical corrosion inhibitor. It significantly slows the spread of corrosion should the metal substrate become exposed from wear or impact. ArmorTek’s exclusive formulation also inhibits the growth of bacteria that cause microbial-induced corrosion or MIC.
Taco’s new VR series high-efficiency ECM cast-iron or stainless steel circulators offer a wide range of low-, medium- or high-head options in sizes from 1/3 to 2 HP. Easy, intuitive settings and operation will appeal to installers for a broad range of uses, including HVAC, hot water recirculation and NSF commercial hot applications, Taco notes. 00e VR circulators provide an easy-to-provide pump interface with real-time feedback.
WINT Water Intelligence announces its award-winning technology is available and ready to be directly integrated into fire sprinkler systems. This new solution helps owners and facilities managers prevent water damage from the accidental discharge of water from fire suppression sprinkler systems. WINT’s devices are installed along the sprinkler supply and can detect exceptionally low drip rates. The AI technology and machine learning capabilities provide intelligent monitoring and alert in real-time when the tiniest leaks start.
The Sensaphone zone water detection sensor detects the widespread presence of water in areas such as floors or drop ceilings. Users receive an alert when the sensor comes into contact with water. The sensor includes 10’ of water rope to cover a large area. Operators can connect up to 10 water ropes to a single sensor for up to 100’ of coverage. The sensor operates on two AA batteries. When the batteries become depleted, the sensor will automatically send out an alert, so users can replace the batteries when no water is present.
