The Model l01 P7 features durable Solinst laser marked PVDF flat tape. The markings are accurate, every 1/100 feet or mil- limeter, traceable to NIST and EU measure- ment stan- dards. Tapes come in lengths up to 5000 feet and are mounted on an ergonomic reel designed for the field. The P7 probe is pressure-proof to depths up to 1000 feet, allowing total well depth as well as depth to water measurements. www.solinst.com Yaskawa Releases iQpump Micro Intelligent Pump Drive The Drives & Motion Division of Yaskawa America Inc. announced the release of the iQpump Micro intelli- gent pump drive. The iQpump Micro serves as an extension of Yaskawa's already proven iQpump1000 drive technology, providing simple, reliable, microdrive control for variable-torque pump loads through 25 hp. Yaskawa understands many light commercial, industrial, agricultural, and groundwater well systems are looking for a more cost effective sim- plex and multiplex constant pressure pump control solution without sacrific- ing what they have come to enjoy from Yaskawa's iQpump1000 full featured drive. iQpump Micro offers many of the same comprehensive software features and control along with the same programming style as iQpump1000. www.yaskawa.com Ergodyne Launches Battery Operated Heated Jacket Ergodyne announced the expansion of their CORE Performance Work Wear Outer Layer Series to include the 6490 heated jacket with removable sleeves. With three heat settings and two heat zones on the chest and back, this versatile battery powered jacket not only comes with removable sleeves, but also offers an adapter extension wire to connect to alter- native power sources including, but not limited to, tool batteries. With three heat settings (low, medium, high) and the ability to turn the jacket into a vest, the 6490 heated jacket is designed to be used in any temperature—chilly or subzero. www.ergodyne.com Little Beaver Missionary Kits Keep Water Flowing Little Beaver introduces its Lone Star Drills Missionary Kit for water well projects. Breakdowns can often quickly swallow the limited time vol- unteer missionary crews have to com- plete wells for those in need of clean water. The Lone Star Drills Missionary Kit aims to limit delays. The kits include the basic necessi- ties for keeping Lone Star rigs drilling: a 4-inch casing flush tool, 4-inch cas- ing slips, a ⅜-inch hollow braid rope, hoist bracket bailer tripod assemblies, a PVC bailer, hard hats and a tool box with pipe joint compound, a grease gun, wrenches, and miscellaneous nuts and bolts. www.littlebeaver.com 58 February 2015 WWJ waterwelljournal.com McElroy Offers Hydraulically Adjustable Pipe Stand McElroy has brought hydraulic capability to its pipe stand line for 4- to 20-inch pipe to help align thermo- plastic pipe more efficiently on butt fusion job sites. The hydraulically adjustable pipe stand fea- tures hand- pumped hydraulic lifting, which gives the operator the ability to adjust the height of the stand while the pipe is still supported on the stand. The hydraulic adjusting feature eliminates the need to remove the pipe from the stand so that the chain and height can be adjusted by hand. This further re- duces the demand for extra equipment needed to maneuver and hold pipe in place, which saves time and boosts productivity. www.mcelroy.com
