Blue-White Industries’ Board of Directors announced the election of Bill McDowell to the position of vice president of operations.
McDowell has been a member of the Blue-White family for 32 years and has held the positions of plant maintenance supervisor, engineer and sales engineer. McDowell brings his comprehensive product knowledge, understanding of customer needs and relationships, and organizational skills to this position.
The Sonic-Pro flowmeter measures flow in virtually any fluid in which sound waves can travel. It is a hybrid ultrasonic flowmeter, so it can be used in either Doppler or Transit Time operation modes. Because its ultrasonic sound transducers are clamped to the outside of the pipe wall, the Sonic-Pro can measure flow in both clean and dirty fluids.
Currently offered in three models, Proseries-M peristaltic metering injector pumps provide a wide range of feed rates and capabilities to meet water and wastewater treatment system demands. Feeds range from as low as .0002 gal/hr (2.10 L/hr) up to 158.5 gal/hr (600 L/hr) at a maximum pressure of 125 psi (8.6 bar). The smooth, quiet, low-velocity injection system eliminates the destructive forces that solenoid-type diaphragm pumps can have on piping systems.
Blue-White Industries announced that on Nov. 2, 2015, by unanimous vote of its board of directors, Rob Gledhill was elected to the position of company president.
Gledhill has been with the company for more than 25 years and has had experience in all phases of production and marketing. He is highly respected by employees, management, customers and vendors.
Gledhill was instrumental in the development and launch of Blue-White’s Pro-Series and Proseries-M lines of metering pumps and flowmeters.
Peristaltic metering injector pumps are well suited to metering chemicals that can foul pump heads with conventional check valves. Peristaltic pumps have rollers that compress the tube in a progressive squeezing action. The gentle squeezing action of the valveless peristaltic pump head design results in near continuous injection of chemical.
Choosing a flowmeter is not always a straightforward task. Trial and error sometimes proves to be the only effective method of narrowing down what will work in a particular application. There are several choices, including various invasive and non-invasive solutions to flow monitoring. Paddle wheel, turbine and variable area require direct contact with the fluid, while both mag and ultrasonic meters are non-invasive.
Sonic-Pro S3 hybrid ultrasonic flowmeters can be used in Doppler or transit time operation methods. Because the ultrasonic sound transducers are clamped to the outside of the pipe wall, the unit can measure flow in both clean and dirty fluids. In addition, because the meter does not come in contact with the fluid being measured, Sonic-Pro is well-suited for use in applications where harsh chemicals and other abrasive fluids are being used.
The Blue-White Industries board of directors and stockholders elected Robin Gledhill to the position of president and CEO on Oct. 14, 2013.
Gledhill began his Blue-White career more than 40 years ago, while still attending college.
He began his tenure in Blue-White’s metering pump division, and eventually moved into the sales and marketing department, where he became Blue-White’s international sales manager. After many years of working closely with representatives and distributors, both on a domestic and International level, he was elected company president in 1997.
