APCO ASU Combination Air Valve
The APCO ASU Combination Air Valve is an innovative new concept in air valve technology. This single body combination valve features a patented air release and air/vacuum mechanism that is specifically designed to deal with media containing grit, solids and grease. The unique design provides varied and predictable air flow over a wide range of air release conditions. A large diameter Air/Vacuum Disc provides high volume air flow for rapid venting during pipeline filling and allows high volumes of air to enter the pipeline during draining. During normal pipeline flow conditions, the dual-range air release design prevents air build up and resultant flow restrictions under changing conditions and through the full flow range.

AUMA Support App for Android
After the successful launch of the AUMA Support App for Apple devices earlier this year, the electric actuator manufacturer now announces a new version of the app for Android devices. Designed to make life easier in the field, the app gives engineers on-site rapid access to all device-related documents, including technical data sheets, operation instructions, wiring diagrams and inspection certificates. These documents are made available by simply scanning the name plate of an AUMA actuator using a smartphone or tablet PC connected to the Internet. The actuator is identified by means of a data matrix code on the name plate, and the actuator-specific documents are displayed within a few seconds. Documents can be printed, forwarded via e-mail, or saved on the mobile device. The AUMA Support App for mobile devices using the Android operating system is available free of charge from the Google Play Store. The version for iOS-based devices is available from the Apple Store.

PTR-1 Regulator
There’s a lot more to the new PTR-1 from Cashco Inc. than an identity based product designation. Formerly known as the T1 valve when the product was acquired with the acquisition of Kaye MacDonald in 1999, the PTR-1, which stands for Pressure Temperature Regulator, now comes with all of the information a customer needs to match the regulator to the application. That includes a technical bulletin, an IOM (installation, operation and maintenance) manual, and assembly drawings for all line sizes and item numbers. The PTR-1 is similar to the recently introduced ULR-1. However, in addition to the CA1 mounted on a DA4 pressure reducing regulator, customers also purchases a Model 135 Low Temperature Probe, which is inserted into the lines they want to control. If the pressure in the line gets too cold, the probe will open and bleed the gas out of the cover dome of the DA4, thus shutting the DA4 off and protecting the downstream apparatus.

Colossus 200-Ton Toting Caster
Hamilton Caster is well known for making heavy duty industrial casters—and now, one of the biggest. Hamilton recently designed and built four 100,000-pound capacity casters for a federal contractor. Fully assembled, each caster towers 52 inches above the factory floor and weighs more than 8000 pounds. Together, they represent Hamilton’s highest payload capacity ever: 200 tons. Each Colossus caster was designed with a spring-loaded suspension system to absorb shock. The swivel construction consisted of 32-inch and 18-inch diameter raceways flame hardened to 55-60 HRC with a total of (96) 1-1/2-inch diameter bearing balls. Each caster also featured an eight position swivel lock for directional control, a huge 7-inch diameter oscillating axle to accommodate uneven surfaces, and a foot-operated braking system.
