The XD4 pump from VARNA PRODUCTS delivers up to 4 gpm (15 l/m) of oil flow. It is a self-priming and quiet-running vane pump for use in a wide variety of transfer applications with non-corrosive fluids such as oils and coolants. It can produce over 60 psi (4.1 bar) pressure at nominal voltages of 12 thru 24vdc.

CS INSTRUMENTS says its new Indoor Ambient Condition (IAC) sensor helps with this measurement task and with monitoring intake conditions. The intake or ambient air influences the compressed air generation and treatment. This should be monitored and evaluated stationarily with suitable measuring technology.

With energy bills likely to remain high for some time, users of compressed air must consider every potential energy-reducing measure. In tandem with growing demands to reduce carbon footprint as the UK transitions to a net-zero future, many companies are looking at compressed air technologies for the solution. Air dryers, which are essential to improve the quality of compressed air and protect valuable assets, are no exception. With this thought in mind, HI-LINE says its latest Tundra range of refrigeration air dryers is its most energy-efficient to date, helping companies reduce costs, remain competitive and boost their green credentials.

Railway fastenings manufacturer Pandrol has installed a THORWORLD modular loading dock and ramp to replace its previous Thorworld solution, which had successfully delivered 15 years of service at the company’s Worksop facility. The new solution, tailored to Pandrol’s needs, offers enhanced throughput and safety benefits.

SICK has announced it has expanded its proven, non-contact magnetostrictive linear encoder portfolio with the launch of a versatile product family for wide-ranging industrial applications. SICK says the DAX linear encoders precisely determine the absolute position of pistons in hydraulic cylinders, as well as reliably monitoring linear motion in many common industrial machines.
