Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. Expands Its Presence into the East Bay Market of California

Bay Area Washout Systems, LLC., services builders and contractors in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties.

Elk Grove, CA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) July 29, 2021 -- Concrete Washout Systems, Inc., announced today that it has signed a new licensing agreement with its newest partner, Bay Area Washout Systems, who will begin distributing and servicing the Concrete Washout Systems (CWS) in Alameda and Contra Costa County markets of California.

Bay Area Washout Systems, a start-up company specifically formed to distribute and service the CWS, began servicing builders and contractors at the end of June 2005 within Alameda and Contra Costa Counties in California. Mark Figone, an industry veteran in the California waste hauling industry, will be guiding the new company.

"I have been in the waste hauling industry for quite some time and believe this is one of the most innovative products both the building and waste hauling industries have seen," stated Mark Figone, President of Bay Area Washout Systems, LLC. "We will be able to provide the local construction industry not only a risk management solution but also a waste reduction solution by diverting and recycling all of the concrete waste from our landfills," added Mr. Figone.

"We are very excited to have and industry veteran with Mark's accomplishments and experience come aboard and realize the value and opportunity in our business model," stated Kevin Mickelson, Vice President of Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. "Bay Area Washout Systems will be providing a growing construction market an innovative product and service and with the tremendous interest developing due to state and regional stormwater and waste diversion regulations. East Bay will be providing a much needed risk management solution," added Mr. Mickelson.

Licensed partners will own and operate a Concrete Washout Systems business in their designated region where they will be responsible for all aspects of the business. Currently Concrete Washout Systems has licensed partners throughout most of California, Hawaii, Las Vegas and Reno, Nevada, Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona, Denver, Colorado and Southeast Florida and has recently signed license agreements for portions of Minnesota and Texas.

The patent pending CWS is a portable, self-contained and watertight bin that controls, captures and contains concrete washout material and wastewater.

ABB Japan Orders Braintech Software for Two Japanese Automakers

ABB Introduces New Trueview™ Seam-Sealing System.

Vancouver, BC – July 27, 2021 – Braintech Inc. (OTCBB: BRHI), a leading provider of vision guided robotic, (“VGR”) software solutions, announced today that it has received two separate orders each for two similar eVisionFactory™ (eVF™) solutions from strategic partner ABB, for two Japanese automakers. The eVF solutions are the key ingredient to this new application of TrueView™ vision guidance for seam sealing.

TrueView VGR, combining ABB robots and Braintech’s eVF software has liberated manufacturing from the limitations of fixtured automation. In the case of these seam sealer systems, an ABB robot uses eVF vision to position the sealing applicator relative to vehicle bodies thereby eliminating the need for costly fixturing and human operators.

Commenting, COO, Babak Habibi stated, “We continue to demonstrate the unique power of our patented¹ SC3D™ guidance technology. Originally developed as a novel approach to locate engine parts for materials handling applications, the core SC3D technology has proven to be a key new technology for 3D Machine Vision, capable of satisfying guidance requirements for a large array of manufacturing needs including powertrain, body, sealant, arc welding and general assembly. Moreover, having extensively evaluated various technologies to solve different types of TrueView applications, we’ve discovered traditional stereo vision and laser based approaches are nowhere near as reliable or versatile as SC3D”.

Jerry Osborn, Vice President, General Manager, ABB Robot Automation stated, “We see more and more of our customers adopting VGR as a viable manufacturing technology, which opens up new opportunities for TrueView. Now, we’re starting to see the first TrueView systems being deployed outside North America and we plan to continue this expansion throughout Asia and Europe”.

St. Louis, MO. (PRWEB) July 25, 2021 -- Gridlogix, Inc., a leading creator of enabling interoperable Web Services technology today announced the completion of an automation controls integration project for the Washington National Cathedral. Gridlogix’s EnNET® CMC (Centralized Monitoring and Control) application for integrating disparate control systems and smart devices was selected by the Cathedral to provide a bi-directional control interface between no less than four automation systems, each one using a different network protocol.

Alan Solomon, Facilities Engineer, has the unique challenge of managing the Cathedral complex that covers 57 acres, took 83 years to construct and was funded entirely by voluntary donations. “Like any organization we have very tight budgets and are always expected to do more with less,” comments Alan. “Our budget wouldn’t allow us to replace our older systems, but we wanted to integrate them to one common platform of our choice to be used for centralized monitoring and control. EnNET CMC brought it all together and enabled me to have complete control at my desktop.” Alan adds, “EnNET is a very easy to use application. We liked the fact it didn’t need special customization to meet our needs.”

EnNET allowed Solomon to integrate Novar Controls, AutomatedLogic, Power Measurement Ltd. (PML) meters and Delta Controls with Delta’s ORCAweb server application acting as the centralized monitoring and control application. Some of the goals for this project included:
• Improved energy management by utilizing real-time energy usage data to initiate control systems response

Creative Materials Feeds Advances in Touch Screen Manufacturing

Creative Materials introduces inks for printing on touch screens. The use of touch screens has become prevalent in a wide variety of electronic applications: public information displays, retail and restaurant systems, customer self-service, control and automation systems, computer based training and assistive technology.

Tyngsboro, MA, (PRWEB) July 22, 2021 – The application team at Creative Materials, Inc., has introduced a family of three materials developed for printing on surfaces used in touch screen manufacturing.

The use of touch screens has become prevalent in a wide variety of electronic applications: public information displays, retail and restaurant systems, customer self-service, control and automation systems, computer based training and assistive technology. As the price for touch screens has steadily dropped over the last decade, touch screens have been more and more commonplace.

Creative Materials’ 118-09A/B-187, 118-09A/B and 118-41 are electrically conductive, modified epoxy systems that stick well to anti-reflective coatings, ITO coated glass and PET. These inks meet stringent requirements for thermal cycling and thermal shock, while maintaining good adhesion.

“As I travel across the country, I am frequently asked about appropriate inks for anti-glare and ITO coated surfaces,” said Joe Morano, application-engineering manager at Creative Materials. “For touch screen applications, I often recommend our 118-09A/B-187, 118-09A/B and 118-41 because of their stability and excellent adhesion. With these choices, the engineer can pick the product that best suits his requirements for pot life and heat cure.”

Creative Materials’ 118-09A/B187 is a two-component, solvent resistant, electrically conductive ink, coating and adhesive. The B-187 cures at the lowest temperature and has a shortened pot life (4 hours). The combination of 118-09A and B-187 curing agent allows for curing at a temperature of 65C. This material is very resistant to scratching and creasing, translating into user benefits such as extended life of the touch screen and prevention of surface-to-surface contact and scuffing.

Creative Materials’ 118-09A/B is similar to the 118-09A/B-187, but has a longer pot life (4 days) at a slight adhesion compromise to anti-reflective coatings. Other applications include, but are not limited to: EMI/RFI shielding of polyimide flexible circuits, polymer thick film circuitry, membrane switches and bus bars on Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) sputtered surfaces.

CMI’s 118-41 is a one component version of the above. Because of its relatively high cure temperature, it can only be used where the substrate can be subjected to the cure temperature. This product features excellent adhesion to glass, polycarbonate, Kapton, and a variety of other substrates, and is very resistant to scratching and creasing.

As Director of Fuel Cell Research, Dr. McGrath will also tailor catalysts for various cell types and operating temperature regimes and design new fuel cell systems for small, portable applications that will be efficient at room temperature with minimal catalyst loading.

“Dr. McGrath has years of experience designing catalysts, membranes and components for direct oxidation fuel cells and her energy, enthusiasm and ability to execute is unsurpassed,” said Kevin Maloney, CEO, QuantumSphere, Inc. “She has extensive knowledge of fuel cell performance evaluation and electrochemical characterization of anode and cathode catalysts. As a result, Dr. McGrath’s addition will augment a powerful research team as QuantumSphere continues to experience strong customer demand for the company’s products that serve the fuel cell market and other areas that leverage our nanopowders for advanced material applications,” Maloney added.

Prior to QuantumSphere, platinum was widely considered to be the best catalyst for proton exchange membrane fuel cells, such as hydrogen and direct methanol cell (DMFC) in terms of electrical efficiency. However, platinum is about 1,400% more expensive per gram than QuantumSphere’s solution. As a result, the company believes its QSI-nano™ materials will replace platinum as the main catalyst in hydrogen fuel cells and other electrode assemblies. As QuantumSphere announces additional customer wins in 2005, the market will realize a decades-long hurdle has been overcome as QuantumSphere, with Dr. McGrath, continues to research, develop, produce and ship alternative catalyst products on a mass scale at a fraction of the cost.

“I am delighted to join QuantumSphere’s highly motivated and seasoned business and technical team,” said Kimberly McGrath, Ph.D., Director of Fuel Cell Research, QuantumSphere, Inc. “It is a pivotal time in the catalysis industry, especially as it relates to renewable energy sources QuantumSphere will continue to play a pivotal role in providing orders-of-magnitude improvements in catalysts for PEM fuel cells via QuantumSphere’s superior development and production process. QuantumSphere is a dynamic company with a very tight-knit team of engineers and chemists who come from a variety of backgrounds. This diversity and community environment promotes novel thinking and synergistic concepts not limited to a single facet of science. It is this type free-thinking that is most conducive to major scientific breakthroughs,” McGrath added.

Large Variable Frequency Drive Motors Are Now Protected By Aegis Sgr™ Shaft Grounding With 74 Additional Sizes

Electro Static Technology – ITW, manufacturer of the patent pending AEGIS SGR™ Conductive MicroFiber™ shaft grounding brush, released 74 new sizes with additional part numbers to cover any VFD driven AC motor with up to six inch (6") shaft diameters.

Mechanic Falls, ME (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) July 20, 2021 -- Electro Static Technology – ITW, manufacturer of the patent pending AEGIS SGR™ Conductive MicroFiber™ shaft grounding brush, released 74 new sizes with additional part numbers to cover any VFD driven AC motor with up to six inch (6") shaft diameters. The full parts list for all 137 individual sizes for shafts from 0.311" to 6.020" is available to down load at www.est-aegis.com . When variable frequency drives (VFDs) are used to control AC motors, currents are induced on the motor shaft. These currents build up until they are strong enough to discharge through the bearings, causing frosting, pitting, and fluting. Over time, these discharges can lead to premature bearing failure and motor failure. The AEGIS SGR conductive microfibers provide the path of least resistance for shaft currents to discharge to ground and prevent bearing damage and extend motor life.

The patent-pending AEGIS SGR is maintenance-free, lasts for the service life of the motor, and is unaffected by dirt, grease, or other contaminants. Now with the expanded part numbers, virtually any VFD motor, regardless of size and horse power, can be protected by this innovative new solution to prevent electrical bearing damage.

AEGIS SGR™ is easily installed by sliding the ring over either end of the motor shaft and locking it in place with simple screw-on mounting brackets. Because no machining is required, the SGR can be installed in minutes — even in the field.

Electro Static Technology is the global leader in the elimination and/or mitigation of induced electrical charges on rotating and moving surfaces. Other products include FLX-P™ flexible peel-and-stick passive static eliminators for printers, copiers, and other imaging devices. Electro Static Technology is a division of Illinois Tool Works (ITW), a $10 billion multinational conglomerate operating in 44 countries.

Microstaq Inventor Masters MEMS Flow Control

Nelson Fuller has spent the past three years designing and developing a microchip for flow control systems at Microstaq, a start-up company located in Bellingham, WA. Microstaq’s MEMS valve technology holds promise for industrial automation, automotive, aeronautical, biomedical, refrigeration, and other flow control opportunities.

Bellingham, WA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) July 20, 2021 -– Nelson Fuller has spent more than 20 years designing and developing fluid systems. For the past three years at Microstaq (www.microstaq.com), he has been engineering a silicon chip microvalve technology that holds great promise for the miniaturization of these systems. The micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technology will soon make its way into a number of flow control applications where improved flow control performance and integrated intelligent control are sought.

Fuller spends his days designing and testing Microstaq’s new valve technology. He enjoys being part of a small company, after spending years working in the large corporate world. His work at Microstaq is extremely hands-on and team oriented, and he enjoys being able to see his work come to fruition.

“The buzz word is that you want a ‘disruptive’ technology,” Fuller said. “Our technology is such that it has the potential to replace all solenoid control valves, which is a pretty big market.”

Fuller came to Microstaq in 2002 after a successful engineering career at TRW Automotive. While with TRW, Fuller was key in the invention and commercialization of antilock braking systems, now a product mainstay of TRW.

After some initial design work on microvalves at TRW Fuller joined Microstaq, where he is now successfully testing this all-silicon valve at the company’s Bellingham, Washington labs.

Microstaq’s valve is a silicon MEMS technology, which means that its internal moving parts will not wear out. It is a tiny silicon wafer the size of a button that controls the flow of liquids, mists and gases at high pressures, replacing traditional control valves larger than a spark plug. In automotive applications its lighter weight and smaller size will increase fuel economy and reduce power consumption in every car, truck and SUV that uses it.

Fuller thinks the microchip-sized valve will revolutionize the flow control industry. He has kept his eye on the future, finding his work exciting and groundbreaking, as well as challenging at times.

“I basically did it because I saw that the industry had developed solenoid valves to the point that they couldn’t be made more efficient,” he said. “My desire has always been to stay ahead of the research curve.”

Fuller has a Bachelor of Science degree in physics from Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan, and was an aerospace photographic system repairman for the U.S. Air Force. He worked for Chrysler Introl Division in Michigan as a development engineer before moving on to Kelsey Hayes (now TRW) in the early 80s and then to Microstaq in 2002.

About Microstaq:
Microstaq (www.microstaq.com) is a privately held company founded in 2000 to bring MEMS technology to the flow control world of automotive systems. Microstaq designs, develops and manufactures high-performance MEMS silicon valve systems capable of operating in normal to extreme flow control environments. Microstaq’s MEMS valve technology holds promise for industrial automation, automotive, aeronautical, biomedical, refrigeration, and other flow control opportunities.

CoroWare Launches Conformance Test Labs Subsidiary

The new company will ensure interoperability for the mobile service robotics community.

BELLEVUE, Wash. (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) July 18, 2021 – Moving to streamline the process of robotic systems integration, CoroWare, Inc. today announced plans to form CoroWare Test Labs, a CoroWare subsidiary whose mission is to provide impartial, objective conformance testing to ensure interoperability and standards compliance among intelligent, mobile service robotics applications.

CoroWare Test Labs, the first company to test for standards comformance in the robotics industry, will be located in Pittsburgh, Penn., a leading center for robotics research and development in the United States. CoroWare Test Labs is funded in part by a grant from The Technology Collaborative (www.techcollaborative.org), which operates various programs and initiatives designed to accelerate digital and robotic innovation in Pennsylvania.

"We’re looking forward to working with CoroWare as they apply their conformance testing expertise to agile robotics," said Chuck Brandt, chief technology officer of The Technology Collaborative. "The CoroWare Test Labs facility is yet another key step in the development of such products and systems, and signals the anticipated growth and acceptance of agile robotics solutions in the defense and early adopter commercial markets."

Slated to open on August 1, CoroWare Test Labs will develop test suites that assess conformance to the JAUS (Joint Architecture for Unmanned Systems) standard, which transitioned in 2005 to the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) AS-4 standard. JAUS was developed by the military to ensure communications among robots and robot subsystems from different manufacturers. As the SAE AS-4 standard, JAUS will move forward as both a commercial and military standard.

The mission of CoroWare Test Labs is to:

-Accelerate the delivery of interoperable autonomous / robotic solutions to commercial and military users.
-Accelerate the emergence of a standards-based robotics components market so developers can bring new robotics solutions to market faster using existing, proven, interoperable components.
-Verify basic interoperability among robotic platforms, subsystems and control systems.
-Support system level integration and testing processes and reduce risks and cycle times associated with the system level testing process.
-Eliminate variable results and duplicative cost when developers and integrators develop their own conformance and interoperability tests.
-Provide customers, certification bodies and other organizations with a means of verifying that their unmanned systems conform to the JAUS/SAE AS-4 specification.

"Before now, robotics vendors had no way to test their implementations against a fixed standard," said Lloyd Spencer, CEO of CoroWare and of CoroWare Test Labs. "This caused uncertainty among customers and long delays in development and testing time for vendors. With this announcement, we intend to eliminate much of the guesswork at the critical first phases of implementation, giving vendors a jump-start and assuring customers that the robotic systems they buy will interoperate with one another. With the formation of CoroWare Test Labs, we're accelerating the emergence of the standards-based mobile service robotics market."

"We're glad to have a team that knows standards conformance and brings their expertise in network interoperability to the robotics industry," said Todd Jochem, CEO at Applied Perception (www.appliedperception.com), a Pittsburgh-based robotics company. "Interoperability is especially important in military applications, where dozens of manufacturers are supplying robots that must communicate with one another. Having an independent evaluator able to certify each JAUS implementation is crucial as the industry matures. Overall, CoroWare Test Labs will help drive the growth of the mobile service robotics industry."

About JAUS/SAE AS-4:
The JAUS initiative was created to develop a reference architecture that promotes open standard communications with unmanned robotic systems. The JAUS standard has since been transferred to the SAE AS-4 committee for commercial and military uses. The JAUS/SAE AS-4 communication specifications comprise a component-based, message-passing architecture that specifies data formats and protocols for communication among unmanned robotic systems. Moreover, JAUS/SAE AS-4 defines messages and service behaviors that are independent of any specific implementation, including computer hardware, operator use, and vehicle platforms.

CoroWare Test Labs Management:
CoroWare Test Labs is headed by Martin Harvey. Martin has in excess of 30 years experience in the field of program and senior level management in IT development, implementation and consultation. During this time he has managed projects across a range of from one to 70 persons, a maximum value of $85M and profit/loss engagements up to $25M.

Swiss Made Watches Not 100% Swiss Manufactured?

Definition of the term Swiss Made in watches.

Denver, Colorado, USA (PRWEB) July 14, 2021 -- The term "Swiss Made" when used on watches is typically regarded as a mark that indicates the country of origin of a watch.

However, the term "Swiss Made" is actually a term that has been trademarked by the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry (http://www.fhs.ch), and has been used to deceive the American public as well as the general population worldwide into believing that 100% of the components used in a "Swiss Made" watch are manufactured in Switzerland.

According to seldom seen "disclaimers" from the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry (go to http://www.fhs.ch and click on the "Swiss Made" link for the verbatim definition), a watch is considered to be Swiss Made if 50% of the VALUE of the components have been manufactured in Switzerland and if it has been assembled and cased up in Switzerland and the final inspection is in Switzerland. This deceptive disclaimer means that a $10 movement can be purchased from the far east or Russia and then can be assembled using one $10 Swiss manufactured screw made to fit the movement, and the watch can legally be called "Swiss Made," said Terry Allison, founder of Montres Allison.

Pierre Maillard, well known and highly regarded writer for Europa Star (the best known magazine that covers the Swiss Watch Industry) stated in a recent article regarding the term "Swiss Made": "...this label is no longer a guarantee of origin worthy of the name because, as we know only too well, it covers all kind of practices and allows the label ‘Swiss’ to be placed on watches that are essentially Chinese. Let’s admit it. The ‘Swiss Made’ appellation is largely a masquerade." To read Pierre's entire article go to the following link: http://www.europastar.com/europastar/search/search_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1000486686


"The use of this term is very deceptive and creates unfair competition for us and for manufacturers of components and watches in countries other than Switzerland," stated Allison. The components in question are not marked as to the country of origin, so the public is not fully aware of the magnitude of this very serious issue being perpetrated on the American people.

Often times, "Swiss Made" watches aren't 100% Swiss manufactured, and if the public knew this, in Allison's opinion, the public would make buying decisions based on other factors.

A Gallup poll published on the Federal Trade Commission government website showed that half of adults surveyed indicated that the country of origin is important to them when considering the purchase of a watch. The same poll revealed that if they had a choice, two-thirds of those surveyed would prefer to have a watch manufactured in Switzerland. More than a quarter of those polled indicated that country of origin was extremely important to them. The Gallup Poll also surveyed the respondents' confidence that an unqualified "Swiss" marking on a watch meant that the complete watch was manufactured in Switzerland. More than half (52%) of the adults surveyed were at least "somewhat confident" that a watch marked "Swiss" was completely manufactured in that country. The percentage was even higher (59%) among those who stated that they would prefer a watch manufactured in Switzerland. The results of the Gallup poll can be seen at http://www.ftc.gov/opp/jointvent/madeusa/ftp/usa/047.txt.

"It is common industry knowledge that many of the Swiss watch manufacturers purchase cases, movements, components, crystals, crowns, and display boxes from countries in the far east for use in watches that will be sold to unsuspecting customers as "Swiss Made," said Allison. Allison also stated, "My problem with this is that the components manufacturers in countries other than Switzerland that are producing quality components that are being used in "Swiss Made" watches and that are good enough to be used in the highest quality of watches are not being treated fairly by the consuming public due to the deceptive term "Swiss Made" and the perception by the public that "Swiss Made" products are so much better than those produced elsewhere." "A watch should be judged on it's individual merits, and not on the country of origin -- especially when a country of origin marking such as "Swiss Made" is deceptive and allows the use of components manufactured in countries other than Switzerland."

If more than one-half of adults surveyed believe that the term "Swiss Made" indicates that a watch was completely manufactured in Switzerland, when the regulations clearly indicate that this need not be the case, the FTC and US Customs need to become involved in order to protect the American consumer who has been repeatedly duped by those companies who mark their watches as "Swiss Made" when they are secretly subcontracting the manufacture of many of their components in Russia and the far east.

"The list of manufacturers who mark their watches as Swiss Made while knowing that their watches do not consist completely of components manufactured in Switzerland is very long. You would probably be surprised to learn of the high end watches that use components manufactured in countries other than Switzerland," Allison stated. Do a google.com search for the term "swiss made scam" to read about many of the dirty little secrets in the Swiss watch industry. Caveat Emptor - Buyer beware.

About Montres Allison:
Montres Allison manufactures 18k gold, platinum, and silver cases, dials, movement components, buckles, and crowns in Colorado, USA for customers who demand the finest in hand craftsmanship, custom watches, and prototypes.

Clay Processor Installs DCF Self-Cleaning Filter to Keep Up with Demand

A kaolin clay processing facility has discovered that the Ronningen-Petter® patented DCF self-cleaning filter provides measurable advantages in the processing of slurries.

(PRWEB) July 12, 2021 -- A kaolin clay processing facility has discovered that the Ronningen-Petter® patented DCF self-cleaning filter provides measurable advantages in the processing of slurries.

Improvements in the kaolin clay facility had created a problem for its process engineers — finding a filter to meet the facility’s newly doubled production rate. Their solution was the Ronningen-Petter DCF-1600 multiplex self-cleaning filter. Because the screen on the DCF filter is cleaned on demand and without interrupting production, a consistently high flow rate is maintained across the system.

SITUATION

Engineers made process changes in the kaolin facility and needed a filter that could protect the heat exchanger, keep up with the facility’s higher throughput, and handle the unique screening characteristics of kaolin slurry. In addition, backwashing filters installed in other areas of the plant ran the risk of depositing water into the product and diluting the slurry.

RONNINGEN-PETTER SOLUTION

The facility’s engineers installed a Ronningen-Petter DCF-1600 four station multiplex self-cleaning filter system and have never looked back. The DCF filter mechanically scrapes collected debris from the filtering screen with a disc that moves up and down the screen parallel to the liquid flow, then purges the solids from the filter. This self-cleaning action is performed without halting production, and provides the highest quality filtering under continuous demand. Because the screen on the DCF filter is cleaned on demand and without interrupting production, a consistently high flow rate is maintained.

Higher Flow Rates — The high flow rates achieved with the installation of the Ronningen-Petter DCF filter enable the filtering system to keep up with the facility’s doubled production. And the high quality filtering provided by the DCF filter protects the newly installed equipment that is so critical to the maintenance of the improved production rates.

Does Not Introduce Water into Product — Ronningen-Petter DCF self-cleaning filters offer some clear advantages over the backwashing filters and vibrating gravity screens typically seen in the clay industry.

Backwashing filters that were already installed in other areas of the plant always ran the risk of depositing water into the product and diluting the slurry. In contrast, the DCF does not introduce any new fluids into the product, and the waste purged from the DCF filter is in a small, highly concentrated form.

RESULTS

Increased production rates: DCF filters outperformed and replaced several vibrating gravity screens by increasing throughput and reducing the filter floor space required by 70%

Labor savings: Operators don’t need to watch the filter, since the differential pressure across the filter media conveys its performance and can be monitored automatically.

Material savings: Saves the dollars spent on replacing vibrating gravity screens.

Superior flow rates: 30-200 gpm (113-756 l/min) at pressures to 150 psi (10.5 bar).

Lower maintenance: Saves costs and time.

CONCLUSION

Ronningen-Petter DCF self-cleaning filters, by their very nature, provide kaolin clay processors with higher flow rates and better quality filtering than backwashing filters and vibrating gravity screens typically used in the industry. The DCF-1600 filter meets the challenges of variations in clay properties, particle size and flux rates to protect expensive processing equipment.

APPLICATION DETAILS

Fluid: kaolin slurry
Contaminant: rust silica
Pressure: 80 psi (5.5 bar)
Flow Rate: 200-250 gpm (755-945 l/min)
Filtration Required: 50 micron (0.002 inch)
DCF MODELS

DCF 400 flow up to 30 gpm (115 l/min).
DCF 800 flow up to 60 gpm (230 l/min).
DCF 1600 flow up to 200 gpm (755 l/min).

Industrial Wax Manufacturer Eliminates Hazard by Installing DCF Filters

Filter bags engorged with hot liquid wax were creating a safety hazard for employees at a U.S. based industrial wax manufacturing facility.

(PRWEB) July 11, 2021 -- Filter bags engorged with hot liquid wax were creating a safety hazard for employees at a U.S. based industrial wax manufacturing facility.


The company needed a safer filtration system, and installed a Ronningen-Petter® DCF Mechanically-Cleaned Filter to eliminate user intervention during bag change-outs. The self-cleaning DCF filter also increased the wax manufacturer's productivity and final product quality.

The wax manufacturer makes industrial wax used in consumer wax products such as decorative candles. The final filtration stage eliminated fine particles of burnt wax through a multi-bag filter system. But the system presented some significant safety problems on the finishing line.

Wax kept at a temperature of 300°F during processing put line operators at risk for serious burns during the messy job of filter bag replacement.

Hot wax trapped in the filter bags caused injuries that resulted in downtime and worker's compensation claims.

In addition to the safety issues, the bag filter system was labor intensive and costly to run. Operators replaced an average of 300 bags per batch, and additional change-outs were required between batch runs.

Ronningen-Petter's Solution

Employee safety was a primary concern for the wax manufacturer, and the project's process engineer. They needed a filter system that was capable of filtering thick, viscous wax with minimal user intervention. Ideally, they wanted a filter that would also reduce or eliminate the need to buy, store, and continuously restock the media.

Based on an evaluation of the manufacturer's project objectives and their filtration process needs, Ronningen-Petter recommended a DCF mechanically cleaned filter. DCF's patented design eliminates bags and their associated risks and expense.

Like bag filters, the DCF is a pressurized filter system, but it is self-cleaning and uses permanent, stainless steel media in place of cloth bags. Filtrate flows from top down and from the inside of the media outward. A spring-loaded cleaning disc travels up and down the inside of the filter media collecting contaminants. The downward pressure of the liquid and the continuous scraping of the disc combine to force contaminates to the bottom of the filter where they are eliminated through a purge chamber.

A DCF model 800 was installed on the manufacturer's finishing line, replacing a multi-bag filter system. After just 30 days of operation, the DCF had proven itself an ideal solution.

Results

The DCF filter eliminated the need to change bags. The automated system eliminated operator intervention during bag change-outs and created a safer environment for its employees.

Worker's compensation claims dropped. Downtime previously used for change outs could now be used to extend the filtration process--increasing productivity and throughput. The wax manufacturer also eliminated a significant operational expense--they no longer replaced 300 bags for each batch of wax processed.

The manufacturer ultimately installed three DCF-800 filters at its facility--and is currently planning to replace 25 additional filters on mixing tanks, storage tanks, and at other stages of its production process.

Manufacturers Find New Ways to Keep Cool

New, newer, and newest heat transfer fluids rescue low-temperature processes.

(PRWEB via PR Web Direct) July 8, 2021 -- A fine-chemical producer in Georgia needed a low-temperature heat transfer fluid to replace the flammable-rated product in their reactor loop. A fragrances and pheromones firm in New England needed much lower temperatures than their citrus-derived fluid was capable of delivering. And a pharmaceutical manufacturer in Puerto Rico needed a non-aqueous food-grade thermal fluid because the specified glycol/water solution couldn’t deliver the cooling capacity the process demanded.

All three companies needed heat transfer fluids better suited to the specific requirements of their cooling processes.

Over the past two years, Paratherm Corporation, a long-time manufacturer of high-temperature heat transfer fluids, has developed a new line of lower-temperature transfer fluids, and these products filled the technical needs of all three processors.

The newest, Paratherm MG™ mid-range fluid is a food-grade non-aqueous heat/cool fluid that eliminates the significant design and operational problems found in steam/chilled-water systems. The fluid, now installed in the Puerto Rico application, is recommended for processes operating from 0°C to 260°C.

Processors with more severe low-temperature requirements are discovering the unique qualities that distinguish Paratherm LR™ Heat Transfer Fluid. This food grade (NSF approved) fluid operates between -40°C and +204°C. Its below 60°C flashpoint allows it to be classified as Combustible rather than Flammable, reducing safety concerns. Chemical, cosmetic, and electronic-materials manufacturers have replaced Silicone-based, glycol/water, and other fluid chemistries with the Paratherm LR fluid. This is the fluid that solved problems in the fine-chemicals plant in Georgia.

Paratherm’s cryogenic-range Paratherm CR™ heat transfer fluid (Patent Pending) was specifically developed to provide the ultra-cold process temperatures (down to -100ºC) pharmaceutical and fine-chemical manufacturers need to increase product purity while simultaneously cutting production time. The low viscosity permits higher fluid turbulence, resulting in faster heat removal than silicone liquids or d-limonene-based fluids. These benefits are providing operational and competitive advantages to the pheromone and fragrances producer in New England.

Paratherm Corporation's product line has grown to seven heat transfer fluids and two high-performance system-cleaner liquids, but the service mission of Paratherm Engineers and Staff has remained the same; to use their thorough knowledge and experience with thermal systems and heat transfer fluids, their relationships with heater and equipment manufacturers, and their focused attention on the needs of customers, to deliver smoothly operating systems and applications, and maximum production, to processors that choose Paratherm.

The new scales, joining Ohaus’ existing line of counting scales, feature and internal counting resolution of 1:600,000. Geared for users seeking more economical and cost-effective counting solutions, the EC Counting Scales provide ease-of-use and reliable results.

Pine Brook, NJ (PRWEB) July 7, 2021 -- Advancing accuracy, durability and portability into one practical design, Ohaus offers the EC Series Counting scales. The scales, part of Ohaus’ existing line of counting scales, feature and internal counting resolution of 1:600,000. Geared for users seeking more economical and cost-effective counting solutions, the EC Counting Scales provide ease-of-use and reliable results.

The high-resolution counting scales have capacities from six to 60 pounds, and can count parts as small as 0.0002 pounds (based on model). Ideally suited for a host of counting applications, including annual inventories, stock rooms, print shops and rentals, the EC Series Counting Scales can be used to count parts ranging from semiconductor chips, electronic coils and screws to ticket stubs and seeds.

The EC Series Counting Scales offer all the features demanded from industrial, warehousing and production applications, including easy-to-use manual Average Piece Weight entry with configuration options for either pound or gram display. The scales are designed with a removable stainless steel weighing pan and durable ABS plastic housing, perfect for use in industrial environments. Additionally, the 80-hour internal rechargeable battery with power-saving Auto-shut off feature and integrated carry handles provides true portability.

For fast and accurate counting, users simply place a known quantity of what they wish to count on the scale and press the dedicated Sampling Key or, for components where unit weight is known, simply input the value on the dedicated APW key. The scale will automatically display the total count of all parts on the pan as well as calculate and display the unit weight of the part. Users can start with a small sample size of 10, and then add random lots of pieces (below original sampling size) to increase their APW accuracy. The software in the machine automatically updates and enhances its average piece weight data as components are loaded onto the pan during counting. If the total weight or APW is too low, the EC Counting Scale will warn the user with a warning on the LCD panel.

The EC Series Counting Scales provide weighing, counting and accumulation application modes, and can perform both positive and negative counting, continuously keeping track of how many items have been added or removed from the scale. The counting scales have dedicated keys for the most common counting operations, including sample, tare, zero, APW entry stability, accumulations and pre-set tare entry. Preset tare weights can be quickly entered via the keyboard, or use the Tare key.

The memory accumulation feature keeps a running tally of each individual count – invaluable in batch counting operations or when accumulation counting large quantities of the same part. The new counting scales also include 10 memory locations for storing commonly-used part weights, easily accessed using the numeric keypad.

All of the EC Series Counting Scales come complete with the following standard features:
• Three-window, backlit LCD with fast display of weight, average piece weight and parts count.
• Seven function, full counting keypad with numeric keys.
• Pound or gram weighing units.
• Auto-optimization feature recalculates APW constantly for enhanced parts counting accuracy.
• Adjustable filtering level and Auto-Zero Tracking for weighing in industrial conditions.
• AC Adapter and internal rechargeable lead acid battery.

Headquartered in Pine Brook, New Jersey, Ohaus Corporation manufactures an extensive line of high-precision industrial, portable and mechanical balances and scales that meet the demands of virtually any weighing need. The company is a global leader in the Industrial, Laboratory and Education channels as well as a host of specialty markets, including the Food Preparation, Pharmacy and Jewelry industries.

Remote Industrial Control and Monitoring Over a Network

RHIO10 is a new compact but flexible control interface for remote control and monitoring of industrial applications over a network. It has 12 opto-isolated digital inputs, 10 relay outputs and 4 10-bit A2D inputs and has lots of programmable settings. It is easy to set up and manage through Windows, Telnet or Serial Terminal.

(PRWEB) July 7, 2021 -- RHIO10 is a new compact but flexible control interface for remote control and monitoring of applications over a network. It has 12 opto-isolated digital inputs, 10 relay outputs and 4 10-bit A2D inputs, with programmable settings. On the Ethernet side, the Rhio10 features 10 base-T network interface and supports static and DHCP IP modes for easy setup and integration with different network types.

The 12 Digital Inputs are optically isolated for system protection and allow voltage levels from 0 to ±24V, which greatly reduces interface problems. They can be used just to sense whether equipment is On or Off, switches have been pressed and similar tasks, or the input system can be set in an Event Driven mode when it can send data on alarm conditions or on change-of-state events.

The 10 Digital Outputs can also operate in simple On/Off Mode or they can be programmed with specific delay times or a range of On/Off timings or basic programmable logic such as AND, OR and NOT functions for more complex control and timing operations. The power-on states of each channel can also be set to avoid incorrect or indeterminate start up states. Each relay output is capable of driving 220V circuits at 3A with 10mS reaction times.

The unit also has 4 10-bit Analog to Digital Input channels, using a highly accurate integrating A2D circuits with 1mS sample rate, which makes them ideal for sensor inputs such as thermocouples. These A2D inputs have an input range of 0-5V and support both threshold detection and data acquisition.

All the inputs and outputs are protected from damage under power on and power off conditions. Each Input and Output has a separate LED indicator for easy status reading.

The unit is managed and controlled through simple Windows software, Telnet or a Serial Console program such as Hyperterm via the supplied serial lead.

The RHIO10 Remote I/O Manager allows simple or complex control, data acquisition or remote monitoring tasks to be carried out over a network with a minimum of fuss and hassle. Applications include automated machine monitoring, industrial instrumentation, discrete control, security and access control and distributed data acquisition systems.
