VACON DRIVES DON’T MIND THE SNOW!

Even when they’re operating outdoors in extreme weather conditions, ac variable speed drives in the latest VACON® 100 X range need no additional protection of any kind, making them a cost-effective and convenient choice for use in demanding environments where ordinary drives would need to be mounted within a protective enclosure.

With a power range up to 37 kW, which is unmatched by competitive products, VACON 100 X drives feature a rugged die-cast metal enclosure with an IP66 ingress protection rating and have an exceptionally wide operating temperature range of -40 ºC to +60 ºC, allowing them to perform reliably and consistently in even the toughest of operating conditions.

Weber 4050 Pallet Applicator Bar Code Scan System

The Weber 4050P Pallet Applicator is designed to label pallets on two adjacent sides without having to stop the pallet. This differentiates the system from other Pallet Applicators in the market and makes the 4050P one of the fastest systems available capable of labelling up to 420 pallets per hour. However with Pallet Labelling there is sometimes the requirement to validate that the barcodes printed are able to be scanned and also that the label has been applied to the product.

The 4050P Pallet Applicator is able to meet these criteria, however in cases where this is required the pallet has to be stopped to ensure that if incorrect labels are printed then they can be re-printed and applied to the product.

NOV MONO INTRODUCES NEW API-COMPLIANT PROGRESSING CAVITY PUMPS FOR OIL AND GAS APPLICATIONS

The launch of a new range of API 676-compliant progressing cavity (PC) pumps has focused attention on the ability of NOV Mono to supply pumping solutions designed specifically for oil and gas applications.

Mono’s PC technology is ideally suited to the typically arduous applications found in this sector, where solids-entrained multiphase fluids such as drilling muds, drill cuttings and produced waters need to be transferred with a steady flow and low shear. The new API 676 EZstripTM pumps provide a practical, reliable and proven solution which helps prevent emulsification, while also resisting the effects of abrasion without gas locking. This makes them ideal for many types of oil, gas and mud handling duties in drilling, exploration, production, processing and separation operations.

Our Sole Concern Is The Health Of Your Skin

Skin protection starts with the use of pr88 the wash off cream or the new pr88 liquid known throughout the world as the finest “barrier” cream money can buy, but there are many situations where pr88 does not provide the ideal protection. An example is in workplaces with intensive radiation most often from electric are welding lamps for hardening of plastics and drying of paint etc. In this situation the use of prUV skin protection will guarantee that rays from UVA, UVB and UVC will be unable to damage the skin protected by prUV lotion. Simple to apply in all areas of the body, including the face, the lotion is removed by the simple expedient of washing.

Alloy Wire International – wire to resist high temperature & corrosion

Inconel, Monel, Hastelloy, Nimonic…… and 40 more Exotic alloys are all manufactured in wire and bar from 21 mm down to 0.025 mm by the 100% employee owned British company – Alloy Wire International in the West Midlands. Their nickel alloy wires and bars are chosen for springs and engineered parts working in very high temperatures or very corrosive environments, where even stainless steel would not give the desired performance. For this reason they are specified for aerospace, nuclear and oil field applications where the harsh environment necessitates using these alloys to achieve the performance.

Hydra-Cell Pumps Shear Sensitive Liquids

Pumping shear sensitive materials can be problematical. Shear helps non-Newtonian fluids flow but too much shear can cause temporary or even irrevocable damage. Hydra-Cell diaphragm pumps from Wanner International are claimed to impose only low levels of tangential stress on the pumped fluid making them ideal for pumping a wide range of shear sensitive materials such as polymers, paints, coatings, dyes, inks, latex solutions and technical suspensions.

The Facts about Motor Rewinds they don’t want you to know…

Did you realise Soda stream are still going? I thought it has long since gone the way of such contemporaneous delights as the Aztec Bar, Atari and the Fiesta XR2. Soda Streams were pretty useless, weren’t they? You got this thick sludge of something that looked toxic and radioactive at the bottom of the glass and your parents never remembered to buy the new canisters. Yes we had one in about 1979 it was in use for about 3 month and once the second canister had run out that was pretty much it. My parents moved on to getting pop from guy who used to drive round every week in a pick-up delivery new fresh bottles and giving us money back for the old bottles, real progress.
