Thousands of sizes will be produced and wrapped for same-day shipping, while other sizes will be available to ship in two to three days.</p> <p>Clippard Instrument Laboratory Inc.; <a href="" target="_blank"></a>; 877-245-6247</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Hydraulic Valves Thu, 19 Mar 2015 20:31:00 +0000 31661 at Stainless-Steel Pressure Sensors Handle up to 6000 psi <div class="node-body article-body"><p>The P8211, P8271, and P8281 series of pressure sensors are designed for measurements in gas, vapor, liquid, and dust. Developed by Minco, the sensors can be set to measure gauge or absolute pressures in environments with pressures ranging from 15 to 6000 psi. They produce a 4- to 20-mA analog output and require a supply between 12 and 30 VDC. Accuracy is 0.15% or 0.50% for P8211, while long-term stability for the sensors is 0.15% URL/year.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Maintenance Mon, 16 Mar 2015 16:05:00 +0000 31541 at Enhanced Calibration Boost Flow-Meter Accuracy <div class="field-byline"> Staff </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Next-generation variable-area flow meters from AW-Lake offer greater accuracy thanks to an improved calibration process. The new process uses an integrated laser engraving system to deliver precise scale locations and increments, directly tied to calibration points on each meter. The calibration process streamlines the production process while improving meter accuracy to 2% of full scale over the full flow range.</p> <p>AW-Lake Company; 800-850-6110; <a href="" target="_blank"></a></p> </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div> Other Components Mon, 16 Mar 2015 15:35:00 +0000 31531 at Large Bladder Accumulators Reduce Pipeline Complexity <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Fluid Energy Controls now offers bladder accumulators in sizes up to 45 gallons, enabling the use of fewer accumulators as compared to smaller 10, 11, or 15 gallon sizes. Large-size accumulators suit applications requiring large fluid volume, such as steel mills, rubber molding machines, paper mills, and processing plants. The accumulators are manufactured and certified in accordance with ASME Section VIII, Division 1, and are rated at 3000 psi. The shells consist of spun Cr-Mo steel, and come standard with Buna-N bladders.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Accumulators Mon, 16 Mar 2015 15:01:00 +0000 31521 at Fittings with double-seal system <div class="node-body article-body">Uniport 10K stops leaks with a double seal (metal-to-metal and O-ring).
