Kapton® Flexible Heaters - Flexible Heating Solutions

Kapton® flexible heaters were originally designed for the aerospace and defense industries. Common were such applications as maintaining constant temperatures in the instrumentation of aircraft, satellites, navigation, guidance and radar equipment. The versatility of this product has since been widely recognized as thousands of uses have been discovered.

Kapton® flexible heaters are regularly specified because of their light weight, thin profile, low thermal mass and flexibility. The abilities to provide an infinite array of patterns and concentrations of heat are additional characteristics. Complex shapes, contours and three-dimensional patterns are possible. Many mounting methods are available for the application of Kapton® flexible heaters.

PDFM 5.1 Portable Doppler Flow Meter

It's ideal for flow troubleshooting, balancing and checking performance of permanent flow meters. The new PDFM 5.1 is fast and easy to operate – you can mount the sensor on the outside of a pipe in less than a minute. Use the built-in keypad and calibration menu to set up the flowmeter for your application. The PDFM 5.1 works on any liquid containing bubbles or solids and is recommended for "difficult liquids" like wastewater, slurries, sludge, chemicals, viscous liquids and abrasives. Measures flow through most metal and plastic pipes including PVC, ductile iron, carbon steel and stainless steel.

The PDFM 5.1 Portable Doppler Flow Meter employs the latest technology in Doppler signal processing. Faster processing, higher data resolution and an improved ability to filter out noise, all combine to produce data accuracy far greater than previously possible.

3 Effective Ways To Eliminate Pipe Strain

A significant amount of the effort involved in choosing equipment goes into selection and installation. While greater emphasis is now being placed on maintenance to get the best life possible out of your investment, there are some widespread issues that are often overlooked. Pipe strain, for instance, is one of the most common reasons that pumps fail prematurely.

Pipe strain is defined as a 'misalignment between the pump suction and discharge flanges and the corresponding pipe flange connections. Unacceptable pipe strain can be defined as any forces from unanchored piping that will cause equipment deformation of more than .002-in.

ACCU-VENT Automatic Degassing Valves

ACCU-VENT Automatic Degassing Valves are designed to automatically vent gases and vapors that are commonly released from chemicals such as Sodium Hypochlorite or Hydrogen Peroxide or Sulfuric Acid.

  • CPVC (Corzan) and Viton corrosion resistant wetted materials of construction

  • specially designed float material automatically vents built up gases on system start up and under working pressure

  • can be used on feed side or discharge side of pump (or both)

  • standard 1/2" NPT threaded connections or optional 3/4" NPT available in other materials of construction for various gaseous liquid chemicals

Eliminate Static Electricity With The HAUG Standard Ion Air Knife AK GK

HAUG's Standard Ion Air Knife is an effective way to eliminate static electricity from webs, sheet stock and plastic surfaces. The Ion Air Knife AK GK belongs to the group of air gates. As the name already indicates, these are ionizers which are supported by air flows. The effectiveness of the Air Knife can be explained by the special design of the air discharge nozzle which creates the so-called "coanda effect"?.

Reducing the injection affords the air blast operated Air Knife ionization unit two particularly positive aspects:

  • The air discharge speed is increased, resulting in increased effective depth. This in turn permits a greater operating distance of the Air Knife to the material web.

  • The slot jet has a wider angle of dispersion, which is expanded from 24º to 33º. A larger surface is therefore covered with ionizing, neutralizing air.

Melt Pressure Gauge

The ONEhalf20 CTG6S Melt Pressure Gauge is the ideal choice for extrusion processors requiring a simple, reliable and accurate maintenance free melt pressure measurement. This rugged, totally self-contained Melt Pressure Gauge is available in either 0-5,000 psi or 0-10,000 psi ranges. This Melt Pressure Gauge allows the user to benefit from the improved efficiency and quality that goes along with melt pressure measurement at an affordable price.

The ONEhalf20 Melt Pressure Gauge Model CTG6S also offers the advantage of providing the industry standard 3.33 mv/Volt output utilizing the Bendix style 6 pin bayonet connector. This output enables the user to also connect this gauge to a remote panel mount digital melt pressure indicator.

Temperature Transmitter 2-Wire Economy RTD Hockey Puck Style

This is the one transmitter you need to stock for all your maintenance needs. Using your PC and the available software simply program this transmitter for any one of 7 RTD or 13 thermocouple types or customize the calibration linearization at up to 40 points to fit none standard transmitter outputs.

The output signal can be inverted and can be programmed to be linear with temperature or linear with resistance or mV input. Features include a 7mm central hole for easy spring loading of 1/4" tube, insulating barriers between terminals to prevent shorts and a captive cover on programming pins to keep them clean.

NaK Filled Melt Pressure Transducers

The RTNAK6S NaK Filled Melt Pressure Transducer is designed specifically for food, packaging and medical processing applications. The Model RTNAK uses a special high temperature fill (NaK, potassium sodium) and an Inconel diaphragm to allow for pressure measurement in applications with process temperatures up to 1,000ºF. The unit features the industry standard 3.33 mV/Volt output and offers pin-to-pin compatibility with all competitor's models utilizing the Bendix style 6 pin bayonet connector.

The RTNAK6S NaK Filled Melt Pressure Transducer comes standard with a 6" rigid stem, and 1/2-20 UNF thread for mounting in standard transducer mounting holes.

Static Meter I Static Measuring Unit

The Static Meter I electrofieldmeter is a small hand-held field strength meter with digital display for measuring electrostatic charges in Volt. It perfectly combines easy operation with accurate measuring technique.

The Static Meter I measures charges according to the fieldmill influence principle C: The influenced charges, caused by electrically field, generate an alternating current proportional to the electrical field strength. The selective amplifier converts this value into the corresponding field strength or electrical potential – without withdrawing energy from the electric field over the averaged time.

Midget Model 277 Pneumatic Indicator

The Midget Model 277 Pneumatic gauge provides an economical way to achieve reliable and accurate tank gauging in vented tanks.

Strainsert Flat Load Cell

Flat Load Cells from Strainsert provide the best features required by fatigue applications and are provided for in the structure.

Flat Load Cells structure is simple and compact, consisting of an inner loading hub and an outer supporting flange bridged smoothly by a uniformly continuous solid shear web. Strain gauges are installed and sealed inside small gauge holes along the neutral axis of the web. Structural stress raisers are avoided. The lowest deflection and highest natural frequency of any available load cell are thus obtained, along with the highest resistance to extraneous forces. Mechanical and Dynamic Properties of Flat Load Cells are fully tabulated in Brochure.
