Steam traps can handle hot condensate flows as high as 149,000 pounds per hour and are available in five models for differential pressures up to 320 psi. Up to 18 bimetallic elements can be added or deleted to match conditions. (Magnum Series by Bestobell Steam Traps)
Delayed-egress exit device secures interior or exterior openings during alarm states for 15 to 30 seconds upon depression of a push pad. Once the delay cycle is timed out, the device releases for egress, but remains armed to sound an alarm until reset. (SecureX by Yale)
Biofilm remover cleans heat exchanger surfaces. A five-minute flush with this non-toxic, non-corrosive and non-chlorinating agent removes byproducts. Chlorine dioxide kills bacteria and polysaccharide film attached to the exchanger surface. (DioxiClear by Frontier Pharmaceutical, Inc.)
Exterior luminaire minimizes the appearance of the lamp itself to highlight the architecture. Six finishes are available for the lamps, which are offered in a 175-to 400-watt range and include both direct or indirect orientation, a premountable wall box with integral splice chamber, built-in bubble level for accuracy and hands-free fixture-to-wall positioning for wiring. (Series 3 by ExceLine)
Integrated radio and I/O module eliminates cable and conduit for analog and digital signals in harsh industrial environments. Using spread-spectrum frequency techniques to guarantee an interference-free link between remote devices and the control room, the modules are available as a transmitter/receiver pair and come factory programmed and calibrated. (MCR-RAD by Phoenix Contact)
Digital video security camera features an integrated hard-disk-drive recording device that helps select picture size and recording speed. Record and stop modes can be set from a PC. (DSR-C100 and LAN kit by Sanyo)
Flow-switch tester recirculates water within a fire sprinkler system, ensuring that the flow switch is operating properly. The tester complies with quarterly NFPA 25 requirements for flow-switch testing, without having to open the inspector's test connection. (Zonecheck by System Sensor)
Connectors can handle high amperages, while providing lower millivolt drops as well as a favorable temperature rise, consistantly. High current circuits can also be incorporated into the same connector with a lower power or other signal circuits. (P-lok by Amphenol Industrial Operations)
Flow-checking circulator eliminates the need for an in-line flow-check unit by integrating it as part of the circulator. This integration provides improved system performance with simplified installation and maintenance without having to remove the entire unit from system piping. (006-IFC by Taco)
Video/audio receiver offers multicast capability, allowing several viewers to see live images via a single network. Unit is designed for vision systems, monitoring remote maintenance, access control and security applications. (VIP Video by Hirschmann Electronics ANS)
Conductor features aluminum wires surrounded by temperature-resistant aluminum-zirconium for lower electrical loss due to the conductivity of the material and ferromagnetic loss. (ACCR by 3M)
Twin-shaft channel grinder provides high capacity and low headloss. The design employs twin-shaft grinding, in which one cutter stack intermeshes with disks for an improvement in capacity and performance. (Taskmaster Titan by Franklin Miller Inc.)
Fire-protection control system features water-supply shutoff, sprinkler-system valves, alarm and supervisory switches. This device can incorporate a deluge, preaction or dry valve and can be supplied with an additional shutoff valve, for system integrity during trip tests. Compressors can be added to the system, including optional air tank. (Series 745 FireLock Fire-Pac by Victaulic)
Air filter with a V-bank design can be used in place of a box-type filter. Ideal for air-starved systems, or any commercial, medical, industrial or processing application. The filter incorporates a water-resistant glass media in a pleat-in-pleat design with up to 200 sq. ft. of media area for high dust-holding capacity. It is best for variable-air-volume (VAV) systems and is also suited to airflow capacities of up to 3,000 cfm. (Durafil by Camfil)
Remote process actuation and control system offers a combination of on/off or continuous valve functionality and electric input and output with Ethernet and Fieldbus connectivity, all on the same DIN rail-mount assembly. (AirLINE by Burkert)
