Media containment unit

Reduces fugitive emissions

Created as an accessory to the company's ball valves, the Media Containment Unit reportedly provides a secondary seal that can be monitored for early detection of stem leaks. The investment cast stainless steel unit is highly corrosion-resistant and well suited for harsh environments. The company claims that it is easy to install in the field onto the company's existing .25- to 10-inch ball valves. It also reportedly lowers operating costs by reducing lost production time because of fugitive emissions and unscheduled maintenance. Flow-Tekhttp://rbi.ims.ca/3849-577

Miniature pump

Improved efficiency

Offered in brush, coreless, or brushless motor configuration, the CTS miniature pump flows up to 2.5 LMP unrestricted flow, pressure service to 24 psig, and vacuum service to 20 in hg. It is part of the company's commitment to improve pump head efficiency for micro vacuum pumps and compressors. Hargraves Technology Corp.http://rbi.ims.ca/3849-578

Flexible white hose

Several varieties available

The company's White Hose is a line of flexible white hose and ducting for use in clean rooms and on medical, pharmaceutical, and food processing equipment and applications. It is available in several varieties: ARH White is an all-thermoplastic rubber hose; BVH White is a lightweight all-plastic crunch-resistant hose; and RFH White is a wire-reinforced thermoplastic hose; and SDH White and Clear are static dissipative. It comes in 0.75- to 24-inch ID sizes, depending on type. Hi-Tech Hose Inc.http://rbi.ims.ca/3849-579


High-speed, more productivity

Designed for off-highway vehicle users who require higher road speed and greater productivity, the Speed+(TM) transmission is based on the MW range of 3- or 4-speed multidisplacement motors. These are reportedly capable of rotational speeds to 250 rpm and provide a large displacement ratio to minimize transmission pump displacement. It is especially suited for agricultural vehicles that need higher speeds for travel between fields; crop sprayers can achieve speeds to over 40 mph, according to the company.

Hydraulic pumps

Sealed front bearings

The four new models in the company's PVM medium-duty line of axial piston hydraulic pumps are designed to offer additional theoretical maximum displacements, ranging from 1.5 to 3.88 inch3 /rev. The products feature rotating group design with rugged cylinder design and hardened cylinder surfaces, SAE heavy-duty splined or keyed shafts, steel piston shoes on hardened surfaces, and sealed front bearings. A maximum pressure of 4,250 psi is achieved. The Oilgear Co.http://rbi.ims.ca/3849-581

Gas flow meters

With stainless steel construction

Created to provide accurate, stable control of gas flow ranges as low as 0-50 sccm, the Model 80 series mass flow controllers are available in stainless steel construction, as well as aluminum construction. Displays are optional on all configurations, and compact packaging allows for easy integration into new or existing designs, according to the company. McMillan Co.http://rbi.ims.ca/3849-582



The Maxflo WSE side-entering impeller reportedly uses an advanced, high-efficiency hydrofoil design for maximum pumping action in demanding applications. Targeted industries include pulp and paper, flue gas desulphurization, and petroleum blending and storage. The impeller features a bolted blade design that is designed to optimize ease of maintenance, and is constructed from highly corrosion-resistant 316 stainless steel, 317L stainless steel, Hastelloy C276, or Titanium.

For pneumatic and water circuits

The WeldFit fittings are all-metal and suited for users who need to achieve reduced assembly times. The fittings provide for quick and easy disconnection, enabling quick re-tubing of the system if it needs to be changed. Designed for deployment in compressed air and water mediums, the fittings are rated for operating temperatures of -20 to 160F. The product's counterbored collet head reportedly provides complete protection to the inner tube. IMI Norgrenhttp://rbi.ims.ca/3849-585

High-pressure pumps

Pulseless flow

Designed for end-user applications like pumping viscous low-fat foods, large particulate products, meat emulsions, and thick pastes, the company's sanitary high-pressure pump reportedly has precise metering capabilities and inherent pulseless flow. It is capable of generating a maximum flow rate of 225 gpm and a maximum pressure of 600 psi. It features high abrasion resistance, low product shear, and low total cost of ownership.
