Diesel exhaust gas temperature sensor

The Sensor Connection has released the diesel exhaust gas temperature (EGT) sensor which features an enclosed foul proof probe tip that permits operation in biofuel and diesel engine applications. This type K thermocouple can withstand extreme conditions, making it ideal in research and development and in various applications with the agricultural, marine and automotive industries.

The EGT diesel sensor is capable of surviving extreme vibration and heat up to 1,200� C. The foul proof sensor tip is recommended for EGT measurements of sulfuric fuels. A 90� bend to the probe accommodates tight-spaced mounting locations.

Automatic switchover

Concoa’s Universal Medical IntelliSwitch offers continuous pressure and flow control from liquid to high pressure medical cylinders. It can be used in hospitals, clinics, healthcare facilities and medical gas pipeline systems.

This automatic switchover features proprietary software and control logic that lower annual gas costs and comply with the National Fire Protection Association 99 Economizer requirements. It is designed to eliminate liquid cylinder vent loss and excess residual return.

The Universal Medical IntelliSwitch allows users to remotely monitor status for added protection and convenience. It can serve as a single remote monitoring source or be linked to a facility alarm systems.

Ductless fume hood

The Purair 5 ductless fume hood from Air Science USA meet, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, American National Standards Institute and other international standards. The ductless design allows the unit to be positioned over a sink or benchtop apparatus. There are three models available.

The unit operates at low noise levels, and because it recirculates it does not exhaust conditioned or heated air into the atmosphere. The Purair 5 features an alarm that alerts the operator if airflow falls to an unacceptable level.

The unit can be placed on any benchtop, and an optional polypropylene spillage tray can be provided if required. The rear of the unit has lighting to illuminate the work surface.

Capacitive sensor

Turck has introduced a noise immune capacity sensor for level applications. The BCF10 sensor’s small size makes it flexible for mounting, and it has the ability to detect liquids with high concentrations of chlorides, such as soaps and cleaners.

In applications where a detergent high in chlorides is used, it is typically contained in a plastic container. Over time, the detergent leaves a film or etch on the inside wall of the container. If a standard capacitive sensor is used for level detection, it will detect this film even though the container is empty.

Laboratory capillary rheometers

The Rheologic and Smart Rheo laboratory capillary rheometers from ATS RheoSystems are used to determime flow behavior in a wide range of materials. Both floor and benchtop models are available with single and dual bore capabilities.

The computer-controlled instruments offer testing abilities in measuring shear viscosity, extensional viscosity, wall slip, melt fracture and rupture with a variety of dies and accessories.

The capabillary rheometer system features two level software interface, which offers standard test control functionality and scientific evaluation capabilities for better understanding of the data.

Setting blocks

Pres-On has released a heavy duty line of setting blocks in commercial grade silicon, neoprene or ethylene propylene diene monomer.

The Pres-On setting blocks are installed inside a window sash to protect insulated glass from the impact of sash openings and closings. The blocks stop the glass from cracking while maintaining the integrity of the glazing bead.

Pres-On setting blocks provide stress relief when vinyl windows expand and contract due to temperature changes.

The setting blocks can be configured specifically to meet the requirements of window original equipment manufacturers.
