‘No-static’ material-handling hose eliminates electrostatic discharge consequences

“Hose arcing” occurs when static generated inside a hose overloads the dielectric strength of the hose tube. This propagating of brush discharge is a problem in process industries.

Tubular cable conveyor moves bulk materials gently, dust-free

This conveyor makes use of polymer discs affixed to a cable to “slide” bulk materials found within stainless-steel tubing. It moves fragile product — quietly and dust-free — horizontally, vertically or at any angle, often through small holes in walls or ceilings.

Oil & gas, other industries benefit from mixing chemicals at remote job site

This mobile mixing system allows dry chemicals to be mixed at a job site as needed. Its makers say this reduces transportation and labor costs; decreases the amount of chemicals needed for a job; eliminates chemical quality variability; and increases the quality or viscosity of the chemicals.
