Advanced sensors deliver better in-pipe images while reporting the pitch of the camera in-pipe

Experience the first true data-enabled plumbing diagnostic cameras with the new line of RIDGID® SeeSnake® cameras powered by TruSensetechnology. TruSense establishes a two-way datalink path between the camera head and a connected RIDGID SeeSnake CSx series Wi-Fi enabled monitor. With TruSense, advanced sensors on the camera head convey valuable information about the in-pipe environment.

SeeSnake cameras with TruSense technology include a high dynamic range (HDR) image sensor that takes the next leap forward in diagnostic imaging. A common challenge faced by diagnostic professionals is being able to see far down the pipe as well as the image just in front of the camera’s lights. An HDR image sensor expands the camera’s dynamic range, allowing a greater ratio of bright and dark areas to be displayed in the same image at the same time without reducing visibility. This means fewer blown-out areas and sections of the pipe that are too dark to see, offering superior clarity and detail.

TiltSense is an on-camera inclinometer that is included on SeeSnake cameras with TruSense technology. The inclinometer measures the camera’s angle. When connected to a SeeSnake CSx series monitor, the camera can convey the camera’s degree of tilt on the monitor display – giving you a useful indicator of the pitch of the camera in-pipe.

“RIDGID SeeSnake cameras are trusted for having the clearest in-pipe picture along with features that help our customers work smarter and faster,” said Tim Dunphy, RIDGID Marketing Director of Underground Technologies. “With TruSense technology, HDR sensors and TiltSense deliver the image quality and information contractors need to see.”

SeeSnake cameras with TruSense technology are available in self-leveling models, which keeps the image upright, and non self-leveling models. All RIDGID SeeSnake cameras come with the RIDGID Full Lifetime Warranty.

To purchase or learn more about SeeSnake cameras with TruSense contact your local distributor, visit RIDGID.com, or call toll-free: 1-800-769-7743.

Lochinvar, an industry leader in high-efficiency boiler and water heater technology, today announced the expansion of its commercial gas water heater family with the most durable and powerful SHIELD models yet. Available in standard and ASME construction, the models now range from 125,000 to 500,000 Btu/hr and offer up to 96 percent thermal efficiency.

“The recent SHIELD upgrades mark new strides in engineering. Our research and development teams have been working hard to design a new system that will boast even better efficient technology,” said David George, Lochinvar product manager. “With the highest durability built into every SHIELD commercial gas water heater, facility managers and contractors can count on solid performance and reliability for projects ranging from multi-family developments to universities.”

The SHIELD product family is designed to minimize lime scale buildup in the tank and on heating surfaces. By controlling and creating high water velocity through the heat exchanger, lime scale buildup is reduced, and the heating surfaces and tank are kept clean, so thermal efficiency remains high for the life of the product.

Designed for a variety of commercial applications, the newly upgraded SHIELD models feature a fully modulating burner with a 5:1 turndown ratio. The new design can fire as low as 20 percent of maximum input when water heating demand is lowest and increases to 100 percent for peak demand periods. This results in better overall efficiency and less cycling compared to “on-off” tank-type units that only fire at 100 percent.

The new models also offer multiple connectivity platforms with optional CON•X•US®, MODBUS® and BACNET modules. Lochinvar’s CON•X•US remote connectivity platform gives commercial facility managers and building owners the ability to monitor and adjust equipment controls from a mobile app. The MODBUS and BACNET capabilities allow building managers to monitor and manage the units through their local building management systems.

These models feature Lochinvar’s advanced SMART CONTROL System, providing a bright, backlit LCD display with soft-key buttons and a wide variety of advanced control functions, including readouts of setup, system status and diagnostic information.

All utility and water connections are located at the top of the appliance to reduce equipment room footprint and increase installation flexibility.

The SHIELD family now features 10 models, ranging from 125,000 to 500,000 Btu/hr. For more information about the SHIELD product line, visit www.Lochinvar.com.

American Standard is answering the call for safer, cleaner water in the home with the introduction of its new, easy-to-install filtration products for kitchen and bath: the American Standard Filtered Kitchen Faucet and Filtered 4-Spray Hand Shower Rail System. Engineered to enhance well-being and provide easy access to safe filtered water, the American Standard Filtered Kitchen Faucet is an essential for homeowners who want to ensure their space is a safe haven, reducing 99.7 percent of lead, 96.9 percent of chlorine and 92.6 percent of class I particulates[1], while the new Filtered Shower System helps promote healthier skin and hair by reducing chlorine levels by at least 50 percent[2].  Both products are now available for purchase directly on www.americanstandard.com.

A Safe, Convenient Solution at Your Fingertips

Home is supposed to be a safe space, providing comfort and security during even the most uncertain times. But how can we protect ourselves and our families from hidden dangers in the household, like lead lurking in the water flowing from the kitchen faucet? Lead, which can make its way into the water we drink due to old pipes and plumbing systems – whether within the home itself or from a home’s main water source, is a major concern in drinking water. The American Standard Filtered Kitchen Faucet brings a big benefit to the kitchen table: the confidence that comes with knowing the water you and your family are consuming is clean and safe filtered water1,2.

The sleek, contemporary American Standard Filtered Kitchen Faucet makes access to filtered water for drinking or cooking easy and convenient via the push of a button on the spray head while greatly reducing lead (99.7 percent), chlorine (96.9 percent) and class I particulates (92.6 percent) that affect water quality. Its innovative design features two separate water channels within, ensuring the regular tap water has no chance of mixing with the filtered water, and allows the filter to be installed above-deck in the countertop or inside the cabinet wall. Both options save homeowners valuable storage space under the sink by providing an ultra-effective filtration system without the added bulk. The easy-to-access activated carbon filter also means that switching out the filter super simple, no matter which installation option you choose.

With the faucet’s lever handle, homeowners can use ordinary tap water for things like doing the dishes or washing their hands, helping to extend the life of the filter. Additional features and benefits include:

  • LED indicator to alert users when the filter needs changing or if the battery is low
  • 300 gallons of fresh drinking water per filter, lasting three to six months on average – delivering over seven times more fresh drinking water than ordinary filter water pitchers[3]
  • Environmentally friendly solution that reduces reliance on plastic water bottles – with one filter providing the same amount of clean drinking water as 2,795 16.9-ounce plastic bottles
  • Pull-down, dual-function spray head with toggle to easily switch from stream to a powerful spray
  • Re-Trax technology for smooth operation and convenient spray head retraction
  • Dock-Tite magnetic docking system to securely hold spray head in place
  • Ceramic disc valve to ensure drip-free dependability and performance for life
  • Limited lifetime warranty

The American Standard Filtered Kitchen Faucet is available for $279.99 and comes in choice of Polished Chrome or Stainless Steel finish, with replacement filters available for $45. For more information or to purchase, visit https://try.americanstandard.com/filtration-kitchen-faucet/.

A Shower Your Skin Will Savor

Know what’s raining down from the showerhead in addition to a luxurious cascade of water? Chlorine is commonly found in tap water, meaning chlorinated water is likely making its way into people’s daily showers. Chlorine can lead to skin irritation, dry hair or eye irritation, deprive the body of natural oils — resulting in dry, damaged hair and skin, and cause color-treated hair to fade faster.

Since bathing in bottled water is not exactly practical, American Standard has introduced a new, easy-to-install filtered shower system to help lower those chlorine levels. The American Standard Filtered 4-Spray Hand Shower Rail System reduces chlorine levels in the shower by at least 50 percent2, helping achieve more beautiful, soft and hydrated skin and hair – along with peace of mind.

Like the other products in American Standard’s Spectra line, the American Standard Filtered 4-Spray Hand Shower Rail System is practical, adaptable and offers multipurpose functionality. Features and benefits include:

  • Sleek system installs in minutes using existing plumbing
  • Highly effective, integrated filter built into the rail, making it easy to unscrew for a quick change when needed and eliminating the need for a bulky add-on filter
  • Filters 5,000 gallons of water per filter, lasting approximately 4 months depending on usage
  • Adjustable, easy-glide holder to customize showerhead height and angle
  • AquaToggle feature allows for an effortless switch between spray functions with just one hand
  • Four satisfying spray options—Drench, full body coverage; Sensitive, soft, gentle spray; PowerWash, invigorating spray; Massage, pulsating, stress relieving spray
  • Extra-long metal shower hose to give full access to the entire shower
  • WaterSense certified

The American Standard Filtered 4-Spray Hand Shower Rail System SRP is $179.99, with finish options including Polished Chrome and Brushed Nickel, and replacement filters are $35 each. To learn more or purchase the shower system, visit https://try.americanstandard.com/filtration-shower/.
