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.

Maintaining Your Pumps To Get The Most Out Of Them

Effectively maintaining pumps in industrial plants keeps them operating well. A pump that operates at peak performance is one in which you can quickly detect problems, with enough time to schedule repairs, and avoid any major issues.

Typically, in a facility, the attention paid to maintenance is directly proportional to the importance of the system in a plant's operations. When critical processes are affected, downtime is expensive. So if pumps are integral to your operations, taking good care of them is a sound investment.

There are typically two types of maintenance activities to factor into your plans - preventive and predictive. The first addresses standard system needs like lubrication, adjustments, and the clearing of any contaminants. Predictive maintenance, on the other hand, focuses on testing and inspection to pre-empt deterioration.

Eco Valve Back Pressure Valves and Pressure Relief Valves

Eco Valve Back Pressure Valves and Pressure Relief Valves are ideal for metering pump/chemical dosing applications. They are designed for long life and ease of installation and maintenance with an exceptional 3 year warranty.

Available in PVC, CPVC, PVDF, polypropylene and 316L stainless steel. Designed to be used as a two port off line pressure relief valve to help protect the discharge side of positive displacement pumps from system failure due to over pressure caused by a blockage or accidental valve closure on the downstream side of the pump.

Electronic Cabinet Cooler NEMA 3R (IP 14) For Electronic Control Panels

Electronic Cabinet Cooler NEMA 3R (IP 14) Frigid-X™ Silent X-Stream™ Series for outdoor use for electronic control panels provide a low cost method of both purging and cooling electrical and electronic control panels by using a stainless steel vortex tube to create cold air from ordinary compressed air. Stainless steel to hold up to rain, snow, humidity and general outdoor use.

Utilizing a hot and cold end muffling kit the Electronic Cabinet Cooler NEMA 3R (IP 14) Frigid-X™ Silent X-Stream™ Series is made extra quite to under 64 dBA depending on capacity. The hot end muffler also acts a “heat guard” - you can actually wrap your hand around it without feeling much heat. The hot air is exhausted safely underneath the hot end muffler.

Electronic Cabinet Cooler NEMA 3R (IP 14) Frigid-X™ Silent X-Stream™ Series is compact and can be installed in minutes through a standard electrical knockout. There are virtually no moving parts.
