Sanitary Bag Break Station Keeps Environment Contaminant-Free

Dump Clean bag

The Dump Clean bag break station is now available in a sanitary model for the food, nutrition, and pharmaceutical industries. The station includes an integrated fan and filter system that constantly draws fine particles inside the unit before they can escape the unit, keeping the environment free of dust contamination. The materials emptied from the bags pass through a loading grate and into a hopper for transfer via a conveying system. The bag break station features a stainless steel construction with interior welds to eliminate potential trapped and accumulated material.

Dry Scroll Pump Eliminates Oil Disposal Step

 mXDS3 dry scroll pump is a dry alternative to traditional oil-sealed

The mXDS3 dry scroll pump is a dry alternative to traditional oil-sealed rotary valves. As a new addition to the existing line of dry scroll pumps, this pump offers a pumping speed of 3 m3/hr and an ultimate vacuum performance of 0.1 mbar. Avoiding oil in favor of a dry scroll configuration saves time and cost by eliminating the disposal step and the need to comply with pump oil environmental regulations.


Materials and Chemicals

Epoxy System Is Suitable for Medical Devices

The EP40TCMed is a two-part, room-temperature-curing epoxy system

The EP40TCMed is a two-part, room-temperature-curing epoxy system. When cured, the toughened epoxy delivers an elongation of 60–70%. It features a low tensile modulus of 5,000–15,000 psi at room temperature, which is suitable for applications like medical and wearable devices where low stress is required. The epoxy can withstand ethylene oxide (EtO), radiation, and other sterilants and anti-microbial cleaning agents. It is serviceable from –100°F to 300°F (–73°C to 149°C). The epoxy is offered in ounce, half-pint, pint, quart, and gallon kits.

Master Bond

Degreaser Is Free of Chlorinated Compounds

The Chlor-Free universal degreaser can dissolve grease, dirt, and oils in applications where a low flashpoint is acceptable. The formulation is non-corrosive and is suitable for heavy equipment, pumps, motors, generators, and cables, among others. It leaves no residue and evaporates quickly, minimizing equipment downtime. The degreaser meets regulations in all 50 states as a volatile organic compound (VOC)-compliant degreaser for heavy-duty cleaning in industrial settings since it has no chlorinated compounds. The degreaser is available in 14-oz aerosol cans.

Transmitter Withstands Harsh Environments

Indigo300 is a plug-and-play transmitter

The Indigo300 is a plug-and-play transmitter capable of providing measurements in demanding industrial applications that require accurate readings. The transmitter enclosure is made of rugged IP65-rated metal for performance in rough conditions. The transmitter offers single-probe support and delivers analog outputs. It works with Indigo-compatible smart probes — which can be swapped whenever needed — to measure humidity, temperature, dew point, carbon dioxide, vaporized hydrogen peroxide, and moisture in oil.


Pyrometers Offer Wide Temperature Range

SPOT+ pyrometer line

The SPOT+ pyrometer line has been updated with new features that improve performance and suitability to challenging conditions. These improvements include new communication interfaces that allow for integration into internet of things (IoT) automation applications and a wide temperature range of 50°C to 3,500°C. The pyrometer line can remotely measure temperature in diverse industrial environments, including metals, glass, and cement manufacturing, as well as lime kilns and foundries. Each pyrometer has an integrated video camera that can be remotely monitored. When mounted in the company’s high-specification EXSH enclosure, the pyrometers are suitable for hazardous area zones 1, 2, 21, and 22.


LiDAR Scanner Generates Digital Models

Ray II is a high-precision light detection and radar (LiDAR) scanner

The Ray II is a high-precision light detection and radar (LiDAR) scanner that creates digital twins of large 3D objects at a faster rate and higher accuracy than comparable technologies. The scanner can be paired with the manufacturer’s software to generate digital renderings. This technology is useful for industrial applications that require a digital model of a physical object or job site. The scanner provides models with excellent angular and range accuracy.


Ammonia Sampler Increases Operator Safety

ammonia sampler tests the water content in anhydrous ammonia in hazardous applications

This ammonia sampler tests the water content in anhydrous ammonia in hazardous applications, including fertilizers, plastics, textiles, and petroleum manufacturing. By using closed sample fixtures and allowing operators to monitor ammonia concentration in-house, this sampler reduces the likelihood of ammonia exposure and the dangers of transporting samples to a lab. To increase safety, the sampler can be installed directly at the sample point. Each test takes about two hours, reducing the standard eight or more hours needed for lab testing, and automated testing removes the possibility of operator error.


Photoelectric Sensors Can Measure Reflective Surfaces

This photoelectric sensors is suitable for industrial material handling applications with difficult-to-sense surfaces like foil-wrapped pallets

The R202 series of photoelectric sensors are suitable for industrial material handling applications with difficult-to-sense surfaces like foil-wrapped pallets and other reflective surfaces. These photoelectric sensors detect the distance, presence, or absence of an object. Each sensor comes in a standardized housing with integrated solid metal bushings for durable installation. In addition, the sensors are available in alternating current (AC) variants with 24–240 V.


Gas Leak Detector Measures Gases with High Sensitivity
