Shaft sealing system

The Water Mizer bearing isolator uses water to create a positive purge for control of liquid products in paper stock, slurries and other applications. A non-contact seal, it is engineered to avoid direct egress of particulate matter to ensure performance. The design uses a wall of water that functions as a barrier to retain product. The unit is designed to accommodate shaft misalignment and deflection, using the water barrier directly on the shaft to facilitate axial movement without stress or strain on the product.

Composite pipe wrap

Syntho-Glass XT is a bi-directional fiberglass composite system designed for repair and reinforcement of internal and external corrosion damage in pipes. Conforming to ASME PCC-2, DOT and API570 standards, it has no VOCs and installs in wet or submerged environments. A water-activated urethane resin reduces composite prep time. Applications include process piping for chemicals, oil, gases, water and steam, and high-pressure injection lines, among others.

Inspection viewing window

The Viz-IR infrared and visual inspection pane facilitates inspection of energized electrical conductors and circuits while keeping panel doors and covers closed. The IR viewing pane is manufactured of a steel-reinforced IR-transmissive polymer; the visual inspection window is made of Plexiglas. Sealing gaskets are IP65 and NEMA 4-rated, and the panel body has a 16-gauge steel construction with a powder-coat finish. All plastics are switchgear-grade and UL746-compliant. A nylon ultrasound port is optional.

Rechargeable LED flashlights

Stinger LED and Stinger DS LED rechargeable flashlights feature C4 LED technology. Providing up to 18,000 candela peak beam intensity and 140 lumens measured system output, the flashlights are equipped with a proprietary, deep-dish, parabolic reflector for long-range and peripheral illumination. Both flashlights are constructed of 6000-series machined aircraft aluminum and have a non-slip, rubberized comfort grip with an anti-roll rubber ring. They're powered by nickel-cadmium sub C batteries that fully recharge in 10 hours.

Infrared inspection window

The VP12 IR viewing pane facilitates thermal imaging of energized electrical components through closed doors. Designed to work with most specialist lens alternatives, the unit is IEEE C37.20.2-compliant for metal-clad and station switchgear and UL945VA-rated for flammability resistance. It also meets IP65 and NEMA 4 requirements when either opened or closed. The pane is manufactured using non-conductive materials, with a front cover lock and IR lens included as standard features.

Bearing isolator

The Split GUARDIAN is a metallic split bearing isolator. Engineered with a unitizing ring that eliminates metal-on-metal contact, the seal won't groove the shaft or score the housing. Designed for easy installation, the component can be pressed into the equipment housing without special tools. The unit meets NEMA MG 1-2003 and IEEE 841-2001 standards and is API-compliant. It's rated for speeds of up to 4,500 fpm and has a shaft-to-bore misalignment of
