Oils Provide Lubrication For Air Compressors
Shell Lubricants has released a line of air compressor oils. The first, Shell Corena AP, is intended for the lubrication of industrial reciprocating air compressors, in particular those with up to and above air discharge temperatures of 220 °C with continuous high delivery pressures. The second, Shell Corena AS, provides lubrication under severe conditions to oil-flooded single- and two-stage compressors, especially those operating with output pressures of greater than 20 bar and with air discharge temperatures greater than 100 °C.
Finally, Shell Corena S is suitable for the lubrication of rotary sliding vane and screw air compressors operating with lower discharge temperatures.

Calibration Tool Saves and Recalls Programmed Tasks
Hart Scientific’s 9140 series Field Metrology Wells calibration tool is designed to perform and function between -25 °C to 661 °C. The 9140 series process option has a built-in reference thermometer readout that accepts references probes with 6-pin DIN connectors storing probe characterization. The reference readout offers a second channel that measures resistance, voltage or 4-20 mA current.
Each unit features an LCD display and menu driven interface. The 9140 series offers a dedicated temperature set point and °C/°F buttons. Preprogrammed tasks and temperature points can be saved and recalled for route calibrations.

Ergo-Mate Allows for Safe Dispensing of Samples
Biohit has introduced the Ergo-Mate, an ergonomic pipetting system designed to aid in compliance with ISO 8655. ISO 8655 recommends touching off samples on the wall of the receiving vessels when pipetting. The Ergo-Mate removes the need to hold the plate at any angle and allows for safe dispensing.
The Ergo-Mate, when reversed, creates an aerosol barrier for use in hoods or on benchtop surfaces. It is ideal for transporting plates and can be reversed for flat surface pipetting or as an incubation station with a lid.
