Des-Case Acquires ESCO Oil Sight Glass Portfolio

3-D BullsEye Des-CaseNashville, TN-based Des-Case Corp. has purchased the visual-oil-analysis line of  ESCO Products, Inc., the well-known Texas manufacturer of oil sight glasses and level-monitoring technologies and distributor of Copaltite and Dow Corning products. The acquired portfolio includes ESCO’s 3-D BullsEye Viewport, oil sight glasses, indicators and level monitors.

Headquartered in Houston, family owned and operated ESCO has been in business for nearly 50 years. Its visual-oil-analysis product line began over 30 years ago with the introduction of the Esco Oil Sight Glass (OSG). In the years since, that first OSG design has been modified and the line expanded to include horizontal, high-temperature, large-volume and level-monitor models. The contamination-detection capabilities of these products appear to be an ideal fit with Des-Case’s breathers, filters and other fluid-handling solutions and services that protect and clean lubricants.

According to Des-Case CEO Brian Gleason, broadening his company’s offerings with visual-detection products strengthens its position as a convenient and dependable partner for operations that want to improve their reliability and extend oil and equipment life. “Through our global distribution network and OEM partnerships,” he said, “Des-Case will expand an already-trusted product line in the marketplace to broader geographic and industry reaches.”

Commenting on the recent transaction, ESCO’s President David Haught noted that a sight glass combined with a Des-Case desiccant breather and proper filtration provides “the ultimate protection” for lubricated equipment. “Aligning with Des-Case,” he said, “offers a way to take the product line to more customers and industries than we ever could on our own. We saw it as a natural step in the products’ and our company’s growth.”

ESCO will remain a distributor of Des-Case products and oil sight glasses and will continue to sell Dow Corning products.

Des-Case Introduces Extended Series Desiccant Breathers

051414descaseThe Extended Series from Des-Case are high airflow, long-lasting desiccant breathers with check-valve technology suited for tank farms and large applications. Umbrella check-valves are located underneath the unit for added protection from washdown environments, while an integrated standpipe provides vibration resistance and dissipates impact throughout the unit. Des-Case’s Honeycomb Technology Oil Mist Reducer is situated inside the standpipe, and is made from polypropylene for maximum chemical compatibility. This feature allows oil mist to coalesce and drain back into the reservoir, rather than compromising the desiccant. Other features include 1.2-4.2 lbs of Desiccant and higher airflow (24-27cfm).

Oil-Skimmer Selection Guide

Abanaki recently launched its new, interactive oil skimmer selection guide. The newly designed guide provides a quick and easy way to match the appropriate skimmer for a wide variety of applications. The grid layout can quickly determine the appropriate size, belt material and oil removal capacity, with quick links that connect to more detailed performance specifications.

Belt skimmers are the most economical method for separating oil and water. However, not all applications are alike, so choosing the right oil skimmer and belt material is essential in order for successful oil removal. Although designs vary, all oil skimmers rely on specific gravity, surface tension and a moving medium to remove floating oil from a fluid’s surface. Oil skimmers are simple, dependable and effective tools for removing oil, grease and other hydrocarbons from water and coolants. Often, an oil skimmer by itself can achieve the desired level of water purity. In more demanding situations, oil skimming is a cost-effective means of removing most of the oil before using more complicated and costly treatments such as coalescers, membrane filters and chemical processes.

Seals with Durable Bearing Protection

051414eaglebEagleBurgmann’s BP Seal provides maximum protection against contaminants while maintaining lubrication in the bearing. According to the company, the seal’s innovative design enables bearing protection that is more durable and reliable than competing products.

The EagleBurgmann BP Seal features:

Two Vertical Internal Chambers – Utilizes the laws of physics with the vertical alignment of the internal chambers to create an effective and efficient bearing protection device.

Internal Static Elastomers – A true non-contacting device with two internal static elastomers, eliminating the potential of dynamic O-ring hang up.

Contamination Exclusion – With double exclusion chambers, the EagleBurgmann BP Seal can exclude higher volumes of contaminant, ensuring longer bearing life.

Angled Oil Return – This feature offers enhanced return flow and higher volume capacity with no oil leakage.

Angled Interface – While competing products offer a straight interface, the EagleBurgmann BP Seal features an angled interface, giving the contaminant direction and flow to expel more efficiently.

Typical standard materials include stainless rotor, bronze stator and Viton elastomers, with other material combinations available.

Royal Purple’s Synergy Gear Oil Provides Performance Under Extreme Pressure

Synergy extreme pressure (EP) gear oil from Royal Purple is engineered for service in high pressure pumping. It is designed to operate under the stresses that pumps experience when injecting drilling fluid into boreholes on drilling rigs. The lubricant provides protection under virtually all conditions found in pumping, including heavily loaded, slow speed operations and/or heavy shock load conditions. Synergy’s built-in solvency keeps gear boxes clean and extends oil drain intervals, decreasing the amount of oil needed as well as costs over the life of the pumping system.
