Nidec Motor vertical HOLLOSHAFT inverter duty motors

Nidec Motor totally enclosed fan-cooled CORRO-DUTY vertical HOLLOSHAFT inverter duty motors are cast iron and designed with full Class H insulating materials to withstand the steep-wave-front voltage impressed by the variable-frequency drive waveform. They are designed to run smoother and cooler on inverter power supplies, which can lead to improved system efficiency and reliability. Previously only available as built to order, the motors are now available to purchase off the shelf. The motors are NEMA Premium efficient and are available in 5-300 hp with two and four poles (3,600 and 1,800 rpm) and frame sizes 184-449. 


Schneider Electric arc flash isolation design

Schneider Electric’s ArcBlok technology in the Square D brand Model 6 motor control center is a new equipment design that is not just a barrier to arc flash events, but also helps to prevent arc flash causes from originating, extinguishing and containing the arc energy if they occur. Thermal sensors allow temperature monitoring in a mobile device while standing outside the arc flash boundary. Faster temperature readings can be done without the personal protective equipment normally required for infrared thermography. Zigbee communication protocols can be used to monitor main breaker operating temperatures on a wireless device. The unit can be specified for new installations or retrofit as a new main section as a part of a modernization project to add protection to an existing motor control center installation. 


Apollo Safety Man Down/Lone Worker safety devices

Apollo Safety introduced an enhanced line of Man Down/Lone Worker detection devices from Industrial Scientific. Through its monitoring technology, when a lone worker falls and does not get back up right away, the system can trigger an audible, visual and vibration alarm back to a monitoring station, to a cell through text or email notifications, or directly to emergency services. The system can alert responders and direct them in real time to a precise outdoor location or, if indoors, to the exact floor and room where an employee is located. Man Down/Lone Worker technology also features false fall detection, enabling the lone worker to cancel the pending alert before it’s communicated to monitoring personnel. A press of the check-in button returns the device to normal operation. 


Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group ReNu PU pump head

The launch of a new pump head designed for use with the Qdos range of peristaltic metering pumps has been announced by Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group. Qdos 20 with the ReNu PU pump head offers repeatable flow of 7.67 gph at 60 psi for fluids of wide-ranging viscosity. Metering accuracy is assured to plus or minus 1%. The pump head is designed to deliver maximum process uptime. There is no need for special tools and no requirement for specially trained on-site maintenance technicians. The ReNu PU pump head offers integral leak detection and chemical containment, as cleaning up polymer spillages can be hazardous to operatives and time consuming. 


Beckart Environmental Velcro filter press cloths

Beckart Environmental new line of filter cloths are designed for much faster changeovers than traditional cloths. They are available in sizes to fit most filter press plates on the market. Because there are no gaskets to install and removal of the plate from the press is not necessary, no special tools or equipment are necessary, and the cloths can typically be changed easily by one person. Designed with Velcro tabs along the edges of a fitted one-piece pattern of nylon sheet, installation of the new cloth is quick and hassle-free. Beckart’s Velcro cloths are available for filter plates in these sizes: 18.5, 24.8, 31.5, 39.4, 59 and 78.7 inches. 


CETCO FLUORO-SORB adsorbent for PFAS treatment

CETCO’s FLUORO-SORB adsorbent is a proprietary, NSF-certified product that effectively treats multiple variants of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances. FLUORO-SORB binds the entire spectrum of PFAS (including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS), PFHxS and PFNA) efficiently and in a wide variety of removal and remediation processes. It also controls the source of contamination and can be deployed easily as a flow-through treatment media, as a passive in situ treatment or used in a CETCO REACTIVE CORE MAT composite geotextile mat for sediment capping. It resists competitive adsorption from other water and sediment contaminants. Because of its higher adsorption properties and higher density, it requires fewer changeouts than granular activated carbon, resulting in reduced costs.
