Isothermal Technology Ltd (Isotech) has been providing temperature calibration solutions since 1980, clients vary from National Metrology Institutes to calibration engineers working on-site.
ISOTECH – Solutions for all levels of temperature calibration
Many nations rely on Isotech for their Primary Standards. For example metrology furnaces are used to melt and freeze pure metals providing a fixed temperature (ITS-90 Fixed Points) in order to calibrate standard thermometers. Accredited laboratories use Isotech Stirred Liquid Baths in which thermometers under test are compared to standard thermometers. In industry portable heat sources such as ‘Dry Block Calibrators’ can be used for calibration and Isotech produce Dry Blocks covering -100°C to 1200°C.
ERD Stainless Steel Linear Actuators with up to IP69K rating designed for washdown to maximum durability and to extend product service life
Bournemouth, UK, May 2015: Motion Control Products Ltd recently introduced new ERD22 electric rod linear actuator from Tolomatic is a low-cost, versatile replacement for pneumatic cylinders and an alternative to manual processes. With force capabilities up to 7000N (1,700 lbf), the all-300 series stainless-steel ERD22 is a standard catalogue item featuring hygienic design and IP69k rating. Ideal for medium-force washdown applications, the ERD22 linear actuator is USDA-approved for meat, poultry and dairy applications such as pumping, fluid dispensing, volumetric filling, slicing, cutting and chopping.

The extensive range of PanelPCs available from BVM Limited has been augmented with two new models, designed for use in harsh environments. The robust anti-corrosion stainless steel units have resistive touch screens and fully sealed to IP66, enabling them to be used in areas such as food preparation where they can safely be washed down during routine cleaning. Similarly, the IP66 sealing means that they can also be used in aggressive environments where dust and dirt are frequently present. All models feature M12 metal IP68 interface connectors and IP67 power and I/O connectors to preserve the integrity of the environmental sealing. Three units, based on Ivy Bridge i3/i5/i7 or Celeron processors, the HM65 chipset and HD 4000 graphics are designated the WTP-9A66 versions, with up to 16 GB of 1600 MHz DRAM available. The two lower power WTP-8B66 units are based on the Celeron J1900 quad core processors with up to 8 GB of 1333 MHz DRAM and are available in the 15 and 19 inch screen sizes.
After being shortlisted for an award, WES Ltd was represented by electrical engineers Warwick Palmer and Wayne Daysh at the annual ECA awards dinner in Westminster last Saturday.
Electric actuators vs. pneumatic cylinders:
A comparison based on total cost of ownership
Tolomatic electric actuators are distributed in the UK and Ireland by Motion Control Products Ltd. please click here to visit our website for the product ranges and information.
Pneumatic cylinder actuators, known for their low initial cost and durability, have been a staple in factory automation equipment for decades. They are simple, easy to maintain and provide reasonable control over machine movements in industrial plants. However, since the developmentof more flexible, precise and reliable electric actuators, there has been an ongoing debate over which technology offers the best overall solution for industrial plant optimization. The case for switching to electric actuators has focused on the ability of electric actuators to achieve more precise control of motion (position, speed, acceleration and force), along with providing superior accuracy and repeatability.
