Cooling-Lubricant Supply System
Rexroth’s new Rapidstar Supply Unit (RSU) supply system for cooling lubricants offers the advantages of a modular system for low- and high-pressure supply. When paired with the company’s KST booster, high-pressure generation is moved into the hydraulic unit when internally cooled tools are used. This omits the motor-pump supply line on the cooling-lubricant side and reduces energy consumption up to 88%.

The iglide® C210 bearing from igus® delivers superior resistance to a range of acids, solvents and hydrogen peroxide, and can handle continuous temperatures of 212 F. As with all iglide products, the bearing’s tribo-polymer is lubrication-free and corrosion-resistant, making it resistant to the aggressive chemicals used in food and packaging industries.

Variable-Area Lubrication Flowmeters
Universal Flow Monitors has added compact, noncontact magnetically coupled transmitters to its line of variable-area lubrication flowmeters, replacing potentiometers that can easily wear out. Optional alarm switches protect machinery and minimize downtime in the event of flow failure. The entire line can be used when local flow indication and mechanical flow switching or 4-20 mA transmitters are desired.

Dual-Gauge Filter Adapter
The LF-9904 dual-gauge adapter from Schroeder Industries fits in the existing pressure indicator port of any Schroeder filter, providing a fast and safe way to take oil samples or test pressures in hydraulic or pneumatic systems under operation. Its two ports can sample upstream and downstream fluid, which allows for the use of two test points not previously built into the filter. The adapter’s standard Viton seal is compatible with most hydraulic fluids and petroleum products.
