The new Wilden Pro-Flo SHIFT represents a significant breakthrough in energy efficiency within the AODD pump category. Due to its revolutionary design, the patent-pending Pro-Flo SHIFT Air Distribution System (ADS) allows Wilden AODD pumps to achieve up to a 60 percent savings in air consumption over all competitive AODD pump technologies, while providing more product yield per standard cubic foot per minute (SCFM). While the Wilden Pro-Flo SHIFT dramatically improves energy efficiency, it also costs 50 percent less than an electronically actuated ADS, is submersible, and features plug-and-play operation. Its robust design makes the Pro-Flo SHIFT ideal for use in harsh operating environments and includes ATEX compliance for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. The Pro-Flo SHIFT has fewer operating parts, which equates to less downtime and simple maintenance. For more information about the Pro-Flo SHIFT, visit www.profloshift.com.

Utility Air-Spade 4000
Air-Spade, a division of Guardair Corporation, announces the availability of the Utility Air-Spade 4000 SERIES excavation tools. These tools are safe, non-damaging alternatives to traditional digging methods that often puncture sensitive underground cables and pipes during soil-excavation applications. The Utility Air-Spade 4000 is designed for safe excavation around buried utilities. Electrically insulating materials as well as non-sparking materials make excavating around high voltage power lines and gas lines safe. The Utility Air-Spade comes in two sizes—the 105 cfm with 4-foot barrel and the 150 cfm with 4-foot barrel. They feature patented supersonic nozzles that utilize compressed-air to produce high-speed laser-like jets that move at twice the speed of sound for faster, more effective digging in the toughest soils. For use in utility locating and repair, keyholing, potholing, valve box cleaning, and cable trenching. For more information, visit www.airspade.com or call 800.GUARDAIR (800.482.7324).

Model 5R7-350/347 Temperature Controller
Oven Industries’ Model 5R7-350/347 is an economical thermal controller especially designed to operate with thermoelectric (Peltier effect) modules. Most of these modules may be operated in either a cooling mode or a heating mode depending on current direction. The 5R7-350/347 thermal controller may be field configured for either of these operating modes. These thermal temperature controllers were designed with a proportional/integral control algorithm to provide the best control at the most economical cost. Either a fixed or adjustable proportional bandwidth and integral rate permits optimizing individual thermal systems. Additional external heat sinking will permit operating load currents in excess of 10 amperes. For more information, visit www.ovenindustries.com/product/5r7-350-pid-temperature-controller/.
