New Products: Pulse-Jet Filtering System

Oct. 26, 2006
Also, Track Spinner Hanger Machine, and more

Pulse-Jet Filtering System
FILTERSENSE’s ValvePAC provides intelligent pulse-jet filter cleaning to save compressed air and instant valve diagnostics for reducing pulse jet baghouse and cartridge style dust collector maintenance. It can operate as a standalone device or can network to FilterSense’s B-PAC control systems. Available in modular format to handle small filters and large multi-compartment fabric filters.

RF Digital Indicator
MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS INTERNATIONAL’s new MSI-9850 RF Digital Indicator functions as a wireless remote terminal providing complete control overall scale and data functions. It can log on to 64 different networks allowing it to serve multiple CellScales with simple one-button network or channel changes. It features a large primary weight display that is easily read from a distance and an information display to provide network/channel detail. It can also calibrate any CellScale remotely and provide a simple user interface to the advanced features of the CellScale.

Temporary Rust Preventative Liquid
HALOX’s Halox-900 rust preventative liquid is a water-based and nitrite-free temporary corrosion inhibitor, offering corrosion protection for ferrous and nonferrous metals, and promotes adhesion of coating to the substrate. Depending on the exposure conditions, Halox-900 can last either days or months.

Ethernet-Based Control System
GE FANUC AUTOMATION’s all-Ethernet high-availability solution is designed to mitigate the risks of downtime, safety concerns, and reduce total cost of ownership. Based on the PACSystems Rx7i and Rx31 control platforms, this provides the ability to manage a large number of mission-critical I/O at high speed in a distributed architecture. Various components can be included, depending on the applications.

Ball Bearings for High-Speed Air Handling Applications
SKF-USA’s ConCentral ball bearing units for high-speed air handling applications integrate unique concentric locking technology to form a near 360° interference fit with the shaft. This reduces noise, vibration, and potential fretting corrosion. It also reduces the risk of uneven load distribution, imbalance, and shaft damage and enables the units to run at their bearing’s full dynamic load capacity. The bearing units feature a patented multi-step sleeve arrangement. As the special mounting screws are tightened during installation, the bearing unit’s inner ring is driven up a series of inclined planes, compressing a sleeve around the shaft.

Track Spinner Hangar Machine
WHEELABRATOR’s Smartline Y-track spinner hangar machine cleans and prepares odd-shaped work pieces that do not lend themselves well to table or tumble blasting machines. It is self-contained and includes ducting hoses to the dust collector. The unique in/out hook spinner drive reduces operator fatigue, to permit parts to enter and exit the blast cabinet with ease. The “Y” track overhead rail permits one work fixture to be unloaded while the loaded work fixture is in the machine being blasted, virtually doubling productivity. It also features a PLC-equipped control panel for easy operation.

Ejector Blades
REGAL COMPONENTS’ new line of precision machined H-13 ejector blades are available in a wide range of U.S. standard inch sizes for mold- and diemakers. Machined from H-13 hotwork die steel with 50-54 Rc blade hardness and annealed heads for easy machining. They are available in thicknesses from 0.024 to 0.078 in., widths from 0.100 to 0.484 in., and lengths from 5.00 to 10.375 in. long.

Vacuum Lifter for Nonferrous Loads
ANVER CORP.’s Anver VPF-57 vacuum lifter is designed for handling nonferrous materials that are cylindrical, such as billets, pipe, and castings. It features a suction pad with a foam seal and tough skin that is contoured to handle the “mill finish” surfaces of non-ferrous loads. Available with optional spring-loaded parking stands to protect the foam pad when not in use. Offered with custom pads and capacities up to 2,000 lbs.

Work Clothing
MAGID GLOVE & SAFETY’s new work clothing line is stylish, durable, and comfortable everyday wear. The economical shirts, pants, and coveralls are available in sizes S-3X and in charcoal, navy, light blue, and khaki. Work pants are made of 65% polyester and 35% cotton and have two front and two back pockets. Short and long sleeve shirts are made of the same composition, and feature two chest pockets. Coveralls have double-stitched seams and are hemmed at the cuffs and legs.

Microporous Insulation
UNIFRAX CORP.’s Excelfrax 1900 is based on the microporous insulation principle, exhibiting extremely efficient insulating characteristics in the North American market. It is composed of inorganic oxides, primarily fused silica. Silicates and opacificers are added to improve the material performance. The insulation products actually have thermal conductivity values lower than still air. Microporous insulation can block three modes of heat transfer — conduction, convection, and radiation — offering extremely low thermal conductivity, thermal stability, consistent operating temperatures, and easy fabrication.

Robotic Deburring Tool
ATI INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION offers the Flexfinish, an axially-compliant finishing tool ideally suited for robotic and non-robotic material finishing operations on aluminum and steel. Mounted to a robot or CNC machine, it has a vane-type air motor with gear reduction providing a long service life with exceptional power. The rotating spindle is equipped with a 3/8-in. chuck to hold a variety of finishing devices, including abrasive and wire brushes, sanding disks, polishing points, and chamfering tools. The motor maintains a working spindle speed of 2,600 rpm and the entire tool weights only 7.25 lbs.

Stainless Steel Cut-Off Wheels
REX-CUT PRODUCTS’ Alpha-Green stainless steel cut-off wheels are offered in Type 1 and Type 27 depressed center styles in 4, 4.5, 5, 6, and 7 in. sizes. Capable of cutting faster and cooler than thicker conventional wheels and producing smaller exit burr, they feature a thin profile and proprietary reinforced resinoid bonding system of aluminum oxide abrasives.

Compact 6-Axis Robots
KUKA ROBOTICS’ new KR5 Sixx robot is designed for customers with applications requiring 6-axis functionality for long reach tasks. The new robots, when combined with KUKA’s PC-based control platform, give customers an extremely easy-to-use and easy-to-learn pick-and-place automation solution. The family of robots includes 650 mm and 850 mm reach models and are capable of handling payloads up to 5 kg, and some are specifically designed for foundry operations.

Tag and Label Options
BADGER TAG & LABEL CORP.’s selection of finishing options include scoring, perforation, lamination, UV coating, and any variety of attachments, allowing a tag or label to be customized through completed piece. Any number of attachments can be used.
