Cool & Purge Electrical Control Panels
EXAIR’s new CE (European conformity) comp-liant Cabinet Coolers convert an ordinary supply of compressed air to cold (20 F) air without refrigerants or CFCs, then circulates it through an electrical enclosure to eliminate heat damage and control shutdown. A compressed air filter in the Cooler system ensures that no moisture or dust is introduced into the panel. Independent laboratory testing certifies that these compact Cabinet Coolers meet appropriate CE safety requirements, making them suitable for a wide range of enclosure-cooling applications.

Low-Profile, High-Impact Tools For Tight Spaces
Ingersoll Rand’s new 2015MAX and 2025MAX Hammerhead low-profile Impactools™ are designed for optimal performance, even in extremely tight spaces. According to the manufacturer, these products incorporate the power and speed of an impact tool and reach of a ratchet. The Hammerhead has a head-height of less than 2,” maximum torque of 180 ft-lbs and 7100 rpm of speed. It also features a convenient forward/reverse collar allows unrestricted access and the ability to easily change the direction of the tool in confined spots where traditional tools often jam. Knuckle-saver reactionless torque eliminates kickback and further protects users’ hands. A two-position power regulator and feather-touch trigger provide maximum control in even the most demanding applications.

Fluid & Air Nozzle For High-Temp PD Pumps
Oil-Rite’s spray nozzle for the PurgeX® positive displacement pump allows for use near machinery operating at high temperatures. Co-axial tubing delivers both fluid and air to the target area, but keeps the dispensing mechanism at a safe distance from the heat source. The PurgeX is integrated into machinery as a lubrication system, where it can create an adjustable spray without the use of multiple lines and an air regulator.

2 New Energy-Efficient Motors Hit The Market
WEG Electric is launching two new energy-efficient motors. Quattro, a line-start permanent magnet motor, is a hybrid featuring a 3-phase distributed winding in the stator. Operating at IEC-established IE4 efficiency levels, it is said to be more efficient than NEMA Premium® efficiency induction units. It runs at synchronous speed regardless of the load, providing no I2R losses in the aluminum cage. According to WEG, its new W22 Super Premium motor is the most efficient in the company’s W22 product line, exceeding NEMA Premium levels with 20% fewer losses. When paired with an electronic soft starter, it’s capable of even greater efficiencies. Both of these new motors will be available for order by September 2010.
