Green Gadget: Sequential Battery Charger Powers Up Jobsites

0113gadget2Milwaukee Tool is introducing yet another productivity-enhancing solution for the professional tool user this month. Its Energy-Star-rated M18™ Six Pack Sequential Charger will sequentially charge up to six battery packs of any Milwaukee M18™ LITHIUM-ION battery, allowing users to walk away and remain confident they will have enough power to complete their jobs. The Six Pack Sequential Charger features a compact design, integrated hang holes for vertical mounting, and a pass-through plug to conserve outlet space. The unit can charge M18™ compact batteries in 30 minutes and extended-capacity (XC) batteries in 60 minutes. According to the company, with the expansion of the M18™ system and widespread adoption of the platform, today’s skilled craftspersons depend on toolboxes full of items that require multiple M18™ LITHIUM-ION batteries. Because the new charger will reduce the amount of time spent changing out batteries, users can be more productive at the jobsite than in the past.

Green Gadget: Rugged Turbine Meters With Available Pulse Output

0113gadget1Omega’s FTB-630 Series turbine meters are dry-register mechanical totalizers that offer accurate, economical reading of high flows with low pressure loss. The horizontal-axis turbine drives a vertical shaft that is magnetically coupled to a sealed register. In addition to mechanical totalizing, registers can be equipped with magnetic pulse reed sensors well suited for remote totalizing, pacing of electronic metering pumps and water treatment applications. The FTB-630 Series features 2”, 3”, 4”, 6” and 8” pipe sizes and bodies manufactured of tough cast iron epoxy-coated for protection. Tungsten steel shafts and jewel bearings further enhance the durability of these products. Simple removal of the top flange reveals all parts for inspection, repair or replacement. The meters’ tamper-evident seals clearly call attention to unauthorized access.
