Portable Laser Can Detect Gas from a Safe Distance


The Gas Laser uses advanced laser technology to detect natural gas. It supports remote detection, allowing for a detection distance of 30 m (100 ft) to help operators work at a safe distance. The laser can operate through glass and provide an audible and visual indication when there is methane. It operates for up to eight hours and has a graphical interface for easy interpretation.

Reusable Container Is Suitable for Hazardous Material Shipping


Capsuloc is a hazardous materials (hazmat) shipping container for transporting flammable liquids. Made of hard plastic with a twist-on lid, the container allows for a compliant seal without needing lock rings or any tools to open the cap. The container weighs 32% less than paint can kits and is also half their size, saving space and reducing shipping costs. The containers are reusable and recyclable. The kit is compliant with United Nations (UN) regulations and can be compliantly shipped with an outer UN fiberboard box.


Safety System Provides Fire and Gas Detection


HazardWatch FX-12 system is a fire and gas detection system that uses ControlLogix programmable logic controller (PLC) technology and advanced gas and flame detection field devices. The system includes a local fire and gas alarm touchscreen panel, a redundant power supply per National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 72, integration with third-party auxiliary devices, and approved Ethernet/IP system communications. It can accommodate up to 12 field devices per alarm panel.

Pneumatic Actuator Fits Wide Ball Valve Range


This pneumatic valve pack includes a pneumatic actuator and positioner. The plastic pneumatic actuator (PPA) is made of noncorrosive, glass-fiber-reinforced polypropylene, making it suitable for applications that require high chemical resistance. The actuator accommodates the entire ball valve range, from nominal diameter (DN) 10/15 to DN 100. It can undergo a minimum of 250,000 cycles.

Miniature Sensor Monitors Pressure and Temperature


The flowplus-SPT M6 is a miniature flush pressure sensor with a perfluoroelastomer (FFKM) pressure membrane. It is made of stainless steel and is 15.3 mm long. The sensor measures pressure and temperature through an M6 process connection. It can measure up to 40 bar in pressure and between 5°C and 50°C for temperature with a 2% tolerance. The sensor electronics can also convert the recorded measurements to an analog signal for input into various control systems, such as a PLC.


Industrial Camera Delivers High-Quality Images


The uEye XC is a small 13-megapixel USB3 camera that is suitable for industrial applications. The camera has a lightweight magnesium housing measuring at 32 × 61 × 19 mm. It can deliver full resolution high quality images at 20 fps. It offers 24× digital zoom, auto white balance, and color correction to help capture all details in the image. The camera can be configured with a software development kit to fit application needs.

Valves Improve Safety for Hydrogen Applications


The TESCOM AGI H2 valves are suitable for hydrogen fueling stations and other hydrogen applications up to 15,000 psi. They feature a double-block arrangement that provides two layers of positive shutoff, protecting staff from high pressure during maintenance. To minimize risks, each valve has a QR code, allowing quick access to valve specifications. The valves comply with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 19880-3 hydrogen fueling standard.


Vertical Blender Design Saves Floor Space


This vertical blender offers versatile low-shear blending and drying. The vertical, conical design allows for processing of large volumes in limited floor space. It agitates the batch product using a low-speed auger that orbits and lifts material upward. Product then cascades back down due to the steep angle. It allows for efficient blending of batches that are as little as 10% of the maximum capacity. The blender can be jacketed for heating or cooling with water, oil, or steam. In addition, customers can use the blender with a vacuum to fast dry materials for wet applications.

Dry Vacuum Pump Includes Data Collection System


The NOVADRY NDi central vacuum system is an industrial dry vacuum pump. It combines the NOVADRY screw pump and the VAControl CAB smart controller. VAControl CAB allows for control of all processes and continuous data recording, which can be accessed either through local, remote, or cloud connectivity. The standardized vacuum systems are available in two models that offer pumping speeds of 400 m3/hr or 600 m3/hr, with a strong vacuum performance up to a working pressure of 5 mbar.

Ball Valve Offers Precise Flow Control


The SM Series metering ball valve is suitable for linear flow control of chemicals or water. Users can precisely control fluid flow in 5-deg. increment rotations of the handle up to 180 deg. The valve is bidirectional and can control flow in both directions. It features a full blocking design, double-stem O-rings for safety, and 230-psi rating for the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) model. The valve is also available in polypropylene. It can accommodate pneumatic or electric actuation. The ball valve is available in 1/2-in. and 1-in. sizes.
