Oil and water separator
The Isolator is a new series of separators that remove oil from water to less than 20 ppm. Five sizes have flow rates ranging from 10 to 1,000 scfm. The products have no moving parts, comply with federal and state clean water laws, and are said to reduce waste removal costs by 98%.

Nylatrac™hose and cable carriers are made from heavy-duty, fiber-reinforced nylon. The non-metallic link design is non-conductive and maintains the proper bend radius for hydraulic lines. The carriers are suitable for high-speed and long travel distances on mobile equipment, industrial robots, machine tools, and other equipment. Optional hinged and snap-out bars are available for easy cable and hose access.

These coaxial valves incorporate a process valve and an actuator in a single integral unit that has only one moving part. The industrial-grade solenoid valves replace conventional motor-driven valves for liquids, gases, vacuum, and other media with pasty, gelatinous, aggressive, or abrasive properties. They are pressure-balanced and require no minimum pressure drop for operation. Sizes range from 1 mm to 3 inches. Depending on the size, both 2- and 3-way versions are rated to 7,500 psi.

This new actuator features a rack-and-pinion design. It is available in two styles: A double-acting air-to-open/air-to-close version and a fail-safe air-to-open/spring-to-close type. The first kind has a manual override. The second is designed without an immediate override due to its inherent fail-safe design.
