Flight Systems Industrial
Products (Carlisle, PA) has
released the Xtender: an
all-in-one machine for discharging, desulfating and
recharging lead-acid batteries, with a 6 cycle process.
It is fully automated with
using a high frequency
pulsation process, for a full
range of battery types and
specifications, from 2V to
Sulfation is the main reason for capacity and efficiency loss, which is caused by the accumulation of
extremely hard lead sulfate crystals. The Xtender uses
a high frequency pulsation process to break-down
these crystals. Its process can be monitored remotely,
and packages include capacity reporting and optional
cell monitoring sensors.
New Lubrication Product:
Hydracision, a new lubrication product designed,
manufactured, and patented by Oil-Rite Corporation
(Manitowoc, WI), distributes oil to many separate
points — as few as 12 and as many as hundreds. It
combines efficient hydraulic movement of fluid with
the precision of positive displacement injection.
According to the company, Hydracision promotes an
environmentally sensitive approach to lubrication.
It provides frequent, small doses of lubricant rather
than large applications of oil at infrequent intervals. This allows the oil to reach critical areas when
needed, with little or no run-off or waste. Less oil is
utilized and the machinery benefits from more consistent lubrication.
Spectro Scientific (East
Norwalk, CT) has intro-
duced the MiniLab 53
on-site oil analysis
system. The MiniLab
53 is a practical
wait and costs
with sending samples
to an off-site testing facility. The system provides
machine wear data and trend analyses, enabling
users to make immediate, condition-based decisions
to reduce unexpected downtime and eliminate poten-
tial machine failures.
