Edwards Systems Technology of Owen Sound, Ontario has released the Genesis line of fire alarm strobes and horn/strobes. The line uses technology derived from military applications to eliminate the need for bulky specular reflectors in fire alarm signals. Available in fire alarm red or neutral white, the patented design of the Genesis makes it about the size of a computer mouse. It stands only 3/40 off the wall.

When activated, the Genesis fills the area with full bursts of light, giving full illumination using advanced FullLight technology. Horns are engineered to emit rapidly alternating frequencies to warn of danger. The product won the top honours from the Security Industry Association in New York in August.

The new N-3153 series of pumps from ITT Flygt of Pointe-Claire, Quebec has innovative hydraulic ends that improve the flow of liquids, thus reducing the risks of clogging, especially when pumping high fibrous content liquids such as sewage. With flows up to 160 Lt/sec. and heads up to 45 m, the pumps can be installed in either wet or dry pit stations, making them ideally suited for retrofits. A closed cooling system enables the motor to operate more efficiency, and a plug-in seal unit allows replacement of a seal in a few minutes.

EMU pumps from USFilter’s Davis Products minimize the difficulty of field-assembling mechanical seals. Both upper and lower sets of mechanical seals are inside a precision engineered enclosed block seal (EBS). Each set of springs is “factory set” with the correct pressure, requiring no field modifications or adjustments. The EBS is compact, with a minimum shaft length between the lower thrust bearing and the hub of the impeller, maximizing resistance to deflection, which can distort the seal faces.
