Energy-Saving Cyclone Separator 

Donaldson Company’s DF-C Cyclone Separator, used at the front end of the purification chain within compressed-air systems, provides higher efficiency than the company’s previous models at low-pressure drop. Its optimal flow-path design reduces differential-pressure drop, which lowers energy consumption. The air flow generated by the centrifugal forces of the DF-C range greatly enhances separation of liquid and solid contaminants from the compressed air.

mt0510sprayingPump System Optimizes Tank-Cleaning & Spray Nozzles

AutoJet® FDS30100 Fluid Delivery System from Spraying Systems optimizes the performance of a range of tank-cleaning and spray nozzles. All system components (including the pump, motor and control) are integrated in a compact cart for easy mobility. The system’s Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) eliminates the need for control valves to throttle flow, and the discharge pressure is quickly set on the intuitive touch pad. The VFD also automatically adjusts speed to maintain pressure, reducing energy consumption.

Pressure Transmitters For Hazardous Environments

Monitoring the pressure of combustible substances, including chemicals, gas and oil, requires purpose-built instruments with specific safety features. Ashcroft’s compact Type A2X (explosion-proof) and Type A4 (intrinsically safe) pressure transmitters are specifically designed for hazardous, non-network applications where costly “smart” transmitters aren’t required. Less than 5″ long, with 1″ diameters, they’re available in ranges from 0/5 through 0/10,000 psi and are delivered in accuracies of ±0.5% and ±0.25% of full span. Resulting measurement data are communicated through a choice of six different analog voltage or current outputs.

mt0510warnerClutch/Brake For Those Tough Conveyor Applications

Warner Electric offers a new heavy-duty Gen2 electromagnetic packaged clutch/brake UniModule for use in tough conveyor applications. A new, larger bearing provides a dynamic-load capability increase of 47% over previous modules. A redesigned armature and spline hub result in an effective spline-length increase of 83%. Standard features include internal-component mounting and an external housing fin design that increases heat dissipation and optimizes stop/start frequencies. Integrated custom mounting bolts make installation easy and allow the conduit box to be located directly on top of the unit for consistent orientation.

mt0510efiDrop-In HVAC Replacement Motors

In a partnership with Proctor Engineering Group, EFI is now distributing Concept 3™, an efficient motor for use with your existing HVAC systems. The units are brushless, permanent-magnet designs that can be dropped in as replacements for common Permanent Split Capacitor (PSC) motors found in most furnaces, air conditioners and heat-pump systems using 24v thermostats. Speed-controllable, these motors offer a low-watt draw per delivered CFM in both heating and cooling, and have fan-control algorithms for dry, wet and mixed climates.
