Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC) says its new HemiPleat® Synthetic dust collector filter combines a high-efficiency synthetic media with proprietary open-pleat technology for excellent performance and long life in harsh, humid environments. The washable media is resistant to moisture and can handle heavy dust loading conditions and/or hygroscopic or sticky dusts generated in food, pharmaceutical, and many other processes.
Metraflex says it has made the first major redesign to conventional Y-Strainers since the early 1900s. The Low Pressure Drop LPD Y-Strainer, a patent-pending design, is completely re-engineered with a screen 50% to 60% larger than the industry average, with more holes and a larger surface area.
To meet the need for optimum efficiency and energy savings across all building loads, Armstrong Fluid Technology has announced that its Design Envelope pumps are now also available for use with single phase power up to 7.5 hp.
American Air Filter Co., Inc. introduced the MEGApleat™ M8 premium pleated filter. The M8 filter reduces energy costs by up to 20%, lasts 30% longer, and is 40% stronger, according to the company. The filter’s patent-pending design is ideal choice sustainable building design and operation.
In an effort to meet the need for optimum efficiency and energy savings across all building loads, Armstrong Fluid Technology says that its Design Envelope pumps are now also available with single-phase motors. Ideal for light commercial, residential, and industrial applications using single phase power, the company claims the new pumps allow designers, contractors, project managers, and building owners to choose the best pumping solution for their specific needs.
Cummins Power Generation has developed a new line of all-diesel generator sets to help small businesses such as gas stations, grocery stores, health clinics, telecommunication facilities, and more remain open and operational even during extended power outages and in extreme weather.
Berner International Corp. has introduced a patented Venturi-style heater design, which the company says will offer a more aerodynamic, electric heated air curtain with improved air performance efficiency by up 40% The VTH electric heater combines a hemispherical heating element array with an innovative mounting strategy at the blower inlet. The patented design uses the Venturi effect to draw air through the heating element via the blower inlet before it enters the discharge airstream. The discharge airstream velocity remains unobstructed in a near 100% efficient heat transfer, full laminar pattern for an optimum aerodynamic performance. Company officials said that this creates a near perfect environment-separating air seal across any open doorway while providing auxiliary heat, as needed.
Ruskin’s XP500 was developed for the most extreme weather conditions. According to the company, protecting wall penetrations from flying debris caused by tornadoes, hurricanes, and severe storms is critical in the design of Community Shelters (ICC-500) and Safe Rooms (FEMA 361).
The Grundfos PACO-brand LCS split-coupled end suction pumps are now available for sale in the United States. According to the company, LCS is ideally suited for liquid transfer in chilled water, condenser water, pressure boosting, district heating and cooling, and air-conditioning applications. Its compact design provides hydraulic performance equal to that of a frame-mounted, long-coupled design with the added benefits of a smaller footprint.
