  • Technology Review

    Poured-in-Place Gaskets An updated line of Absolute HEPA and ULPA filters now includes a “poured-in-place” gasket that ensures leak-free performance. Available on all of the company’s gasket-seal Absolute filters, the gasket’s sealing method is uniform in depth and...

  • Technology Review

    Zero-Speed Switches The Maxigard A5000 series zero-speed switches are used to prove rotation or indicate loss of rotation for conveyors, screw feeders, rotary airlocks, mixers, and other mechanical material-handling or -processing equipment. The switches provide a 5-amp SPDT relay output that...

  • Dust Collection

    Cartridge Dust Collectors with Explosion Vent Gold-series dust collectors are now available with a high-performance explosion vent for applications involving capture of explosive dusts. The “X-vent” is manufactured to NFPA standards and is CE and ATEX certified for European use. The...

  • Reducing Energy Costs for Ventilation and Emission Control Systems

    Figure 1: A side-draft hood The mathematics for properly designing ventilation and emissions control systems have been around for a long time, but studies of hundreds of systems show that many such systems waste energy while lacking the...

    Nanofiber Cartridge Filters Dust collection cartridge filters with nanofiber technology last twice as long as cellulose and 80/20 commodity filters. They also lower total dust collection costs by reducing the number of replacement filters needed, lowering maintenance costs, and decreasing...

  • Pneumatic Conveying

    Dense-Phase Pneumatic Conveying Systems These dense-phase pneumatic conveying systems utilize small amounts of high-pressure, low-velocity air to gently transfer controlled “slugs” of dry powdered or granular materials through enclosed convey lines. The systems reduce component...

  • Particle Analysis

    Particle Size Analyzer The Gradex 2000 is a patented PC-controlled device that fully automates the sieve analysis of dry granular materials. By fully automating the entire sieve analysis process, it frees up technicians to perform other work and provides analysis on a more frequent and timely...

  • Instrumentation

    Fixed Thermal-Imaging System A fixed thermal-imaging (FTi) system offers continuous thermal mapping of processing operations and plant surveillance. The system can be used under the harshest plant-operating conditions for measuring temperatures from –4º to 2912ºF with ±...

  • Are Dust Collection Filters Costing You?

    UAS nanofiber filter at 600× magnification How often has buying on price come back to bite you? Probably as often as off-brand batteries that die after just a couple of days, the cheap shirt that falls apart after the first wash, or...

  • Piping, Tubing, & Couplings

    Tube Coupling The Instalok uses an O-ring seal instead of a gasket for a better seal in both vacuum and pressure environments. The O-ring also reduces the water seepage found at times in outside applications. The coupling is designed to align tube ends automatically, so there’s less of...
