HEAT EXCHANGERS

Efficient performance

The Brazepak heat exchangers are engineered for applications requiring high performance in a small size. The brazed-plate products are compact and economical in a range of applications, including refrigerant condensers and evaporators, and oil coolers in engines and machinery. A special brazing process is used to bond together 316 stainless steel plates, which feature a corrugated design for maximum turbulation and high heat transfer in a small surface area.

MINIATURE VACUUM GAUGE

With dual scale

The company's miniature vacuum gauge is provided with a dual scale for accurate indication of vacuum ranging from 0 to -30 in HG. The dial diameter is 7/8 inch with an overall depth, front to back, of 1 7/64 inch. It employs a brass-geared movement that is designed to contribute to an accuracy specification of 3-2-3 percent. Two threads are provided, enabling the user a choice for fitting connections. Beswick Engineeringhttp://rbi.ims.ca/4402-600

PLATEN HEATERS

Cast aluminum

The company's cast aluminum bake and chill platens for waver processing applications use a high-density, mineral-insulated heating element, formed to offer a specific heat profile and cast onto 99.7 percent pure aluminum. The surfaces can be supplied with a hardcoat anodized finished and shipped chem.-cleaned and packaged to cleanroom specifications. Zero porosity of the product provides increased operating temperatures to 450C. Durex Industrieshttp://rbi.ims.ca/4402-601

VISCOSITY CONTROL SYSTEMS

Sensitive

The company's line of viscosity control systems are designed for fluids ranging from hypodermic needle coatings at ½ CPS to silicone caulk at 1 million CPS. They are engineered to be sensitive enough to detect changes in the viscosity of water based upon temperature, and are capable of improving the blending, mixing, and color quality of virtually any fluid. They feature a range of in-line and in-tank sensor options. Norcross Corp.http://rbi.ims.ca/4402-602

SOLENOID VALVE

Instant acting

The company's new solenoid valve features a typical response time of less than 30 msec, enabling nearly instantaneous correction of payload position or rotation through thrust vectoring. It features a compact and lightweight design that uses a pressure-balanced, dual-seat, split-flow poppet for bubble-tight sealing at pressures up to 575 psig. It is configurable for a range of cold-gas systems. South Bend Controlshttp://rbi.ims.ca/4402-603

METER, MIX, AND DISPENSE SYSTEM

Piston-based

The EZ-mixVR variable ratio meter, mix and dispense system is a piston-based, software-driven, positive displacement system that offers accurate mixing without changing gears or other time-consuming mechanical adjustments. It features 0.1 ml repeatability, and users can achieve variable ratio dispensing in 1/100th increments from 1:1 to 20:1 through the keypad. It is designed to eliminate the process of waiting for piston pumps to refill with material from reservoirs. DTIC Dispensing Technologieshttp://rbi.ims.ca/4402-604

MICRO AIR NOZZLE

For precision blowoff

The Micro Air Nozzle is billed by the company as the smallest available, providing precision blowoff with a directed high-volume, high-velocity airflow. It projects less than one inch pass the mounting surface, which is designed to permit installation where space is limited. It is ideal for a variety of blowoff, cooling, and drying applications, including high temperature, food, pharmaceutical, or corrosive environments. EXAIR Corp.http://rbi.ims.ca/4402-605

ROLLER PUMPS

Durable
