On the cover ... WIRELESS AC CIRCUIT IDENTIFIER july/august 2009 Vol. 70 No. 7/8 Editor and Associate Publisher Olga Markovich tel: (416) 510-5113 Publisher Michael King tel: (416) 510-5107

Extech’s RT30 Wireless AC Circuit Identifier permits a single user to remotely identify circuit breakers, wiring, switched lines, AC outlets and light fixtures without cutting into any wires and without a helper. This tool uses a pager-sized, non-contact voltage detector transmitter that clamps onto wiring mid-run and transmits a “voltage present” signal to a pocket-sized receiver carried by the user, up to 100m away. As the user opens splices or circuit breakers at a remote location, the receiver’s visual and optional audible alarms remain on until voltage is interrupted at the wire, effectively identifying the correct circuit breaker or splice.

The new AutoJet®Model 1550 Modular Spray System ensures accurate, precise placement of the liquid being sprayed to minimize waste. The system provides automatic on/off control of electrically- and pneumatically-actuated spray nozzles and offers greater precision than manual operation or devices such as solenoid valves. Proper flow and drop size eliminates quality control problems due to uneven application and improved worker safety by minimizing misting and overspray. The system is self-contained and compact. Operators can be deployed to other tasks once the delay time, spray time, repeat time and duty cycle have been set. The system is ideal for use in lubricating, coating and marking applications and can be used in small- or full-scale operations.

A VERSATILE AEROSPACE EPOXY conquers cryogenic wind tunnel


uniquely formulated epoxy adhesive has come to the rescue in a difficult cryogenic wind tunnel model bonding application. The state-of-the-art wind tunnel poses a difficult challenge to engineering thermoplastics, not only in the terms of the low temperature and vacuum conditions, but in terms of thermal, thermal cycling and mechanical shear stresses. Cooled to 113°K at a rate of 40°K per hour and then reheated over a four hour cycle, the model’s stainless aluminum, neodyne magnet and fiber reinforced plastic substrates are all deforming at their individual CTEs, thus indicating further stress on the parts and adhesive joints. Certainly any metal adhesive would have a difficult time meeting any one of these challenging performance requirements, all the more so all of them at once.

Master Bond’s EP21TCHT-1 is suitable for high vacuum testing applications.

As a NASA qualified low outgassing epoxy, multifunctional Master Bond EP21TCHT-1 was found to be suitable for the high vacuum testing application. Being a toughened, two-part epoxy and the cryogenic adhesive was a good match for the assembly of the difficult to bond substrates used in the wind tunnel model. Developing a high bond strength of 2200 psi in shear at ambient temperatures, it retains significant adhesive strength at both high temperatures, up to 400°F and low temperature, cryogenic environments, down to 4K. The bonds produced are resistant to thermal cycling and many chemicals. As an added bonus, the hardened adhesive exhibits high thermal conductivity useful in the model’s overall temperature cycling performance. Master Bond Inc. CIRCLE NO. 45 ON READER REPLY CARD,

FOOD PROCESS EQUIPMENT BUILDER finds a better gear oil


job — it wasn’t providing the enhanced lubrication required. Jorge Goncalves, ASGO’s Technical Director, contacted his lubricants distributor and explained the issues he was having. He needed to find an enhanced gear oil — one that was H1 registered by NSF, with extended drain and long-term protection capabilities. Goncalves got all that and more when he found Petro-Canada’s PURITY FG EP Gear Fluid 460. Since Goncalves began factory filling and servicing his mixers’ speed-reducing gears with PURITY FG EP Gear Fluid 460, his customers have benefited from several performance enhancements. For instance, drain intervals have been drastically extended. In the past, when servicing his customers’ mixers, he used to have to drain the gear fluid annually. But since the switch to PURITY FG EP Gear Fluid

n the food processing industry, achieving impeccable food safety is a shared responsibility. Not only is the food processor responsible, the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) is also. ASGO, Lda builds several pieces of food processing equipment, including grinders, filling machines, lifters and mixers. Each piece is constructed with food grade stainless steel, safety devices and tools. The company’s mixers are designed specifically for mixing food pastes and dough. The speed-reducing gears are the heart of the machine. Lubricating these gears properly with a top-quality gear fluid is vital. Without doing so, oxidative breakdown, shortened drain intervals, seizures, scuffing and wear are just a few of the problems you could be faced with. A few years ago, the factoryfill gear fluid being used wasn’t doing its

460, he’s more than doubled the drain intervals. Gear inspection also showed substantially reduced gear and bearing wear and the absence of rust and corrosion. The 460 is H1 registered, extends drains, protects against shock loading and rust corrosion. Petro-Canada’s PURITY FG EP Gear Fluids are advanced food grade lubricants formulated to deliver enhanced, longerlasting protection. They are formulated to protect against damage due to shock loading, long-term wear, and a build-up of sludge, varnish, rust and corrosion. The fluids meet the food industry standards and provide lubrication in all enclosed gears, such as worm, helical, bevel and spur. Petro-Canada CIRCLE NO. 56 ON READER REPLY CARD,

The S8000 Integrale chilled mirror hygrometer is able to handle sample gas at pressures of up to 250 psig. This results in a reduced response which can save users time and money in dry applications — such as compressed air and bottled gases — where low dew points are reached. Pressuring the sample speeds up the response time because the gas will have a higher dew point than the same sample at atmospheric pressure. This is because the water molecules are squeezed closer together under pressure making the sample ‘wetter’ than it would be at atmospheric pressure. Mitchell Instruments Inc.

GunJet® Spray Guns ensure water is “on” only when needed

Change the Way You Spray To Save Water and Air There are many ways to reduce water and compressed air consumption without compromising performance in cleaning, cooling, drying and blow-off operations. Here are just a few: • Reduce compressed air consumption by up to 90% using air nozzles instead of open or slit pipes • Eliminate compressed air use completely by using air knife packages powered by reliable regenerative blowers • Automate cleaning of totes, tanks and vats with tank wash nozzles to reduce water and chemical use • Replace open hoses with spray guns and reduce water use by 50% or more
