VACUUM PUMPS

Oil-less design

Double-diaphragm Series 2207 vacuum pumps are designed for users requiring a long-lasting, smooth operating vacuum pump that can tolerate moderately aggressive media. They are of oil-less design with permanently lubricated bearings and stainless-steel valves. Aluminum components are dichromate conversation treated. Ideal applications include vacuum hold-down devices, sawdust extraction, medical suction, and mild chemical mixing. Rietschle Thomashttp://rbi.ims.ca/4394-577

CHECK VALVE

With low pressure drop

The company's check valves are designed to operate without the need for any adjustment or settings. They feature a straight-through design that causes them to have a lower pressure drop than any other check valve designs of the same size, according to the company. They feature all-plastic construction, so they will not stick, jam, or fail as a result of rust or corrosion. They are available to fit 4-, 6-, or 8-inch pipelines.

GAS SPRINGS

Available in two models

Two new models have been added to the company's T3 Series of gas springs: the T3-170 with a 19 mm diameter and stroke lengths from 7 to 125 mm, and the T3-320 with a 25 mm diameter and stroke lengths from 7 to 125 mm. These products extend the line to 11 models with contact forces from 380 to 21,400 lbs. Both feature a bottom port for gas charging that can also connect to the Micro EZ Hose System; also, both incorporate an upper ISO-standard C-groove and threaded bottom hole to allow for a range of mounts.

SOLENOID VALVE

Operates without lubrication

Featuring an operating temperature range of -40 to 176F, the 98000 Series control valves are offered with an 8 mm orifice that fills a requirement within the harsh operating environments of the chemical and process industries. They operate without lubrication, and have been type tested to IEC 61508. They are certified to safety integrity level 4, and are available with a variety of protection class solenoids.

AIR CYLINDERS

Two stage

The company has released a proprietary product line of two-stage air cylinders; the second stage mounts entirely on the extension of the piston in the first stage for applications that require two independent axial forces operating in line on the same centerline. They are designed for a variety of applications, including medical, industrial, and aerospace. Mack Corp.http://rbi.ims.ca/4394-581

VENTURI VACUUM PUMPS

Lightweight

The company's JV vacuum pumps are lightweight venturi vacuum generators that can be used with high speed, high vacuum, pick-and-place systems, and provide millisecond attach-and-release. They weigh 0.63 oz and can be mounted at the pick-up point. They can also accommodate a variety of suction cups and can be controlled using standard compressed air supply valves and components.

VACUUM SYSTEM COMPONENTS

Improve material handling safety

The company's vacuum system safety components are engineered to enhance the safety of a range of air-powered, vacuum-based material handling applications. They feature the Mitey-AirFac self-contained venturi vacuum pump station that achieves 26 inches Hg and has an internal check valve to maintain vacuum in case of power loss. They can be supplied with a variety of suction cups to match loads. Anver Corp.http://rbi.ims.ca/4394-583

FLUOROPLASTIC TUBING

For robotics and automation

Texflour Fluoroplastic tubing is designed for use in robotics and automation applications. It is offered in PTFE, FEP, and PFA; these materials can be extruded in sizes from 0.125 to 4 inches, and they are engineered to achieve small bend diameters without reducing the flow within the inside diameter of the tube. All materials are FD and USP Class VI approved. The product offers a flexible, nonstick surface for easy cleaning, and is chemical-resistant. TexLoc http://rbi.ims.ca/4394-584

AIR-SAVING VALVE

360 degree rotation

The ASR (pressure valve) and ASQ (flow valve) are designed to respond to customers' needs for saving energy. The ASR consists of a regulator with check valve and speed controller; the ASQ consists of a quick supply/exhaust valve and speed controller (meter-in, meter-out). The body and one-touch fitting allow 360-degree rotation. Fixed set pressure type and variable set pressure type are available. SMC Corp. of Americahttp://rbi.ims.ca/4394-585

LIQUID PUMPS

Tiny package

Designed for high-efficiency, continuous-duty pumping of low-viscosity liquids, SMF 4 Series miniature diaphragm pumps are widely used in fuel cells and HVAC applications. They are used in medical, laboratory, and industrial settings. The pumps are 3.35 inches in length and weigh 6.4 oz. They have a top-rated fluid flow of up to 270 ml/min, a maximum height of 472 inches H2O, and a maximum suction height of 276 inches H2O. Both 12 and 24V dc motors are available, as well as 115 and 230V ac motors. Rietschle Thomashttp://rbi.ims.ca/4394-586
