OZ Lifting Dyno-Hoist lever hoist

OZ Lifting Products introduces the first lever hoist with an integrated dynamometer to the North American market, the Dyno-Hoist. It gives users a real-time reading of the load — in kilograms or pounds — they are applying to the hoist, whether during a lifting or pulling application. An overload alert is triggered at 126%. The hoist is available in 0.75-, 1.5-, 3-, 6- and 9-ton capacity, matching the ranges of the company’s industrial and premium (overload protected) lever hoist offerings. Dyno-Hoist’s dynamometer fitting can also retrofit to either of the industrial or premium lever hoists. Other features include all-steel construction; steel handle with rubber grip; zinc-plated load chain; forged alloy steel hooks; and fully enclosed gearing. Dyno-Hoist meets or exceeds CE, ASME B30.21, and AS 1418.2 standards. Standard AA batteries offer a runtime of 150 hours, but the product can be plugged into a 115/1/60 outlet. Each hoist is load-tested and arrives with a test certificate, one-year warranty and a free set of latches. 888-617-3579;

Output voltage is user adjustable plus/minus 10%. A robust yet compact metal housing protects the power supply, and it can be mounted in four orientations by direct panel mount or DIN rail bracket. 800-262-4332;

Flomatic Model 408S5 stainless steel ball check valve

Flomatic Valves’ Model 408S6 ball check valve is now available in a full 316 stainless steel 8-inch design. The Model 408S6 ball check valves are AIS compliant and designed according to AWWA C508 standard lay lengths. The ball check valves are anti-roping and self-cleaning with no sharp edges or snag points which helps to prevent clogging from nonflushable wipes and other non-degradable sanitary products. The design is virtually maintenance free with features that include a clean-out cover that provides easy access to the inside of the valve without removal of the valve from the pipeline. The Model 408S6 valves also include heavy-duty bosses to accommodate NPT tappings for additional optional components. 800-833-2040;

QED Environmental Systems EZR Tray air stripper

QED Environmental Systems EZR Tray stainless steel sliding air stripper is ideal for removing VOCs from contaminated groundwater and waste streams. The air stripper’s exclusive design results in very high removal efficiencies in an easier-to-maintain process unit. It is less prone to fouling and one person can clean it with a simple pressure wash. It is also less intrusive at a site and offers a wide turn-down range. As contaminated groundwater enters through the top of the air stripper, millions of air bubbles are forced by blower pressure up through the perforated trays. This creates a turbulent froth zone with an extremely high air-to-liquid surface area for mass transfer of VOCs from liquid to air. 734-995-2547;


NETZSCH Pumps North America is entering the peristaltic market with the introduction of the PERIPRO pump. It delivers low and large flow rates at a wide range of pressures. The PERIPRO is particularly robust and a powerful pump that can easily handle viscous and abrasive media even at high pressures. The pumps have a long operating life, are easy to use and can enable 30% energy savings as compared to other hose pumps due to its design. There are no valves or mechanical seals, the only wear part is the hose. In addition, the pumps are insensitive to dry running, require 90% less lubricant than other peristaltic pumps and enable an extremely high metering accuracy. Depending on the field of application, the PERIPRO is offered in different versions to optimally cover various customer needs. 610-363-8010;

Nidec Motor SynRA synchronous motor

The SynRA from Nidec Motor Corp. is an innovative synchronous motor. When paired with the ID300 Perfectspeed integrated drive, the motor offers one of the highest efficiencies available for today’s industrial and commercial pumping and HVAC equipment with ratings at IE 4 and IE 5. The unique design gives the freedom to replace components individually instead of the entire system, leading to a lower cost of maintenance. The product’s Smart Technology results in less wear and tear on blower or pump systems by matching application demands with variable speed. The synchronous reluctance rotor with an aluminum cage design is magnet-free, allowing for easy programming and compatibility with existing VFDs.888-637-7333;

ABB KPM KC7 microwave consistency transmitter

ABB has updated its KPM KC7 microwave consistency transmitter portfolio with a larger flow-through sensor to fit process pipes with a diameter of up to 16 inches, giving the choice to measure the total consistency of mixed pulps with a flow-through sensor. The enlarged flow-through model, extending from a previous maximum of 12 inches, expands ABB’s market reach to those with wider diameter pipes that previously could only use insertion types, but now can consider both. The larger size, capturing the whole pipe diameter, provides precise, reliable measurements of total consistency regardless of flow rate for superior process control. 800-435-7365;

Fluoramics LOX-8 Plumber’s Putty
