NOVEMBER 2013 WATER 95 Water Business itself, these electrodes feature a built-in microchip that stores sensor type, ID and calibration information that is automatically retrieved by edgeTM once the electrode is plugged in. Simply plug in the sensor you want and begin measuring. Change measurement parameter by changing sensor -- it's that simple. The electrodes have a 3.5mm connector so users don't have to worry about alignment and pins bending or breaking. edgeTM can be purchased as a complete kit, with the sensor of your choice. Sensors for other measurements can be purchased separately.

MODEL "T" LINK-SEAL ACHIEVES TWO-HOUR FIRE-RATING Projex Group is proud to announce that the Model "T" Link-Seal series has just attained a two-hour re rating according to the Australian Standard 1530.4 and 4072. The Model "T' Link-Seal can seal pipe penetrations through concrete structures and provides protection against ames, smoke, noise, gases and water, even when exposed to extreme temperatures. The Model "T" Link-Seal is composed of a high-temperature silicone rubber block with specially designed carbon steel pressure plates and nut and bolt assemblies, and is mainly used when a re rating is required in buildings, fuel and oil bunds, water tanks, etc. The tested assembly comprised a two- metre long section of 275mm diameter steel pipe with 10mm thick wall penetrating through a core hole in a 200mm thick precast concrete block. The pipe penetrated 500mm into furnace from the block and was blanked off with a welded steel end plate which was 300mm X 300mm X 6mm thick on the re side. The model "T" Link- Seal modular seal system was installed in the annular space between the steel pipe and the penetration through the concrete. The tested Model "T" Link-Seal maintained integrity performance for 132 minutes without the formation of gaps or ssures. Exova Warrington re has issued the two hours re-rating certi cate of the Model "T" Link-Seal on 3 September 2013. "This two-hour reproof certi cation showcases the quality and the ef ciency of the Model "T" Link-Seal. It adds great value to our Link-Seal product range," says Jim Kornmehl, director of Projex Group. "All engineers and project managers can now con dently specify the Model "T" Link-Seal when it comes to seal pipe penetrations within scenarios of extreme temperatures."
