CSI’s new Wear Debris Image Capture Kit and Wear Debris Analysis software help users in tracking down root causes of machinery contamination and wear problems. The capture kit facilitates automatic importation of digital wear debris images. The analysis software enables users to identify root causes by matching a sample’s wear image with database images.

Pipe Freezing

COB Industries has developed ACCU-FREEZE, the world’s first digitally-controlled liquid nitrogen pipe freezing system. ACCU-FREEZE enables piping engineers to create in-line freeze plugs in 3/8″ through 12″ pipes, permitting pipe repairs to be made without shutting down or draining the system.

Dust Suppression

Martin Engineering’s FOG Dust Suppression System offers a low-moisture, no-additive system for capturing airborne dust around conveyors. Microscopic water droplets, typically 1 to 100 microns in diameter, join with dust particle to prevent their escape. Water consumption is typically less than 0.05 percent by weight.

RP&C Class 1500 Forged Steel Gate Valves

The new RP&C gate valves are built to comply with applicable ASME/ASNI b16.34, Class 1500, plus API 602 and API 591 requirements. That includes using dedicated body and bonnet forgings instead of downsized Class 800 components.

All body and bonnet forgings on the gate valves are fully traceable. The valves are designed to deliver high performance and extended service with little or no repairs in a range of applications, including power generation, refining, petrochemical and process industries.

Available in sizes 1/2″ to 2″, the gate valves feature socket weld and threaded end connections and ANSI 900# and 1500# weld-on flanges. Construction options include A105N, A182-F22 and A182-F316/316L materials.
