Filtration Units

08The company’s filtration units are said to extend the life of industrial oils, saving users time and money. Units maintain purity from storage to application and eliminate cross-contamination with color-coded/error-proof, flat face, zero-leak quick connects. They are available in portable and stationary configurations.

Simalube IMPULSE Pressure Booster Overcomes Long-Lubrication-Line Challenges and More

Screen Shot 2016-03-08 at 7.30.22 PMsimatec Inc. (Charlotte, NC) refers to its recently launched simalube IMPULSE pressure booster (up to 145 psi) as “the perfect complement” to its 60-, 125-, and 250-ml simalube lubricators. An addition to the company’s portfolio of smart technologies, simalube IMPULSE is well suited for high-counterpressure applications and systems with long lubrication lines (up to 4 meters, or approximately 13 feet, in length.). The unit’s compact size allows installation in the smallest of spaces, in all positions, even underwater. As an IP68 protection class device, it’s dustproof, waterproof, and appropriate for use in a wide range of industries.

Screen Shot 2016-03-08 at 6.48.16 PMHow It Works
According to the manufacturer, users simply affix the simalube IMPULSE to the selected lubrication point, screw on the required simalube lubricator and activate the unit for the desired dispensing time. The device starts operating as soon as a battery pack is inserted and the lubricator is attached. Continuous lubrication impulses of 0.5 ml supply the lubrication point with oil or grease up to NLGI 2 at a pressure of up to 10 bar. This action is gentle on the lubricant, as only the dosing volume is placed under pressure.

This simalube IMPULSE also continually signals its operating state. When the unit is properly installed, an LED indicator flashes green at regular intervals. Red flashes indicate overpressure, inactive, and empty conditions. Although dispensing intervals set by the lubricator may change, this intelligent pressure-boosting device will automatically adjust.

Maintainability and Service Life
During lubricator change-outs, the simalube IMPULSE stays firmly affixed to the lubrication point. The connection point remains sealed throughout the process, and no lubricant back-flow occurs. Equipped with a fresh battery pack after each lubricator change-out, the pressure-booster can be used multiple times (for 10 simalube 125 ml dispensing cycles or for up to three years).

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 Launches Extended Series Breathers for Large and Remote Assets

0514descaseAccording to Des-Case, its recently introduced Extended Series (EX) breathers combine the materials, design and high air flow of its Standard breathers and the check-valve technology of its hybrid breathers with a new honeycomb- oil-mist-reducing feature and more than double the desiccant (1.2 – 4.2 lbs.). Products in the EX lineup are designed to protect large assets, including wind turbines, gearboxes and storage tanks and remote applications. The company also offers vent adapters for these EX breathers, as well as for those in its Standard and VentGuard breather lines.

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).
