VoreconNX Variable Speed Drive
Voith’s VoreconNX variable speed drive is standardized and modularized by design, which allows for easy parts swapping and maintenance. The variable speed drive runs with minimal vibration while delivering low-range power up to 10 megawatts. The unit was tested at Voith’s Crailsheim, Germany, factory where it ran through a series of standardized performance tests including a speed ramping, overspeed protection, and defined-load point tests. Voith Turbo North America currently has several other VoreconNX units that have been ordered for use in the United States and Canada. For more information, visit www.voith.com/voreconnx.
High-inertia 1FK7-HI Servomotors
These self-cooled 1FK7-HI servomotors provide stall torque in the 3 Nm to 20 Nm range and are offered in IP64 or IP65 with IP67 flange degree of protection, with selectable options for plain or keyed shaft, holding brake, 22-bit incremental or absolute encoders, as well as eighteen color options. A mechanical decoupler between the motor and encoder shaft protects the encoder from vibrations, providing a long service life. In cases where the encoder needs to be exchanged, the device automatically aligns the encoder signal to the rotor pole position, enabling feedbacks to be changed in the field quickly.

Integrated Fluid Manifold
Norgren has partnered with a leading molecular diagnostics company to support the expansion of the company’s infectious disease identification technology. Under EAU from the FDA, SARS-CoV-2 has been added to the diagnostic test which detects additional respiratory pathogens to diagnose other common respiratory illnesses in about forty-five minutes. At the heart of the rapid detection system is Norgren’s integrated fluidic sub-assembly. The precision laminated acrylic valve manifold provides a reduced footprint, eliminates leak points, and allows for faster instrument assembly-all while increasing performance reliability.

Q.E.D. ENVIRONMENTAL SYSTEMS
Torpedo™ G1275 Pumps
The Torpedo G1275 pumps handle pumping conditions that would cause many other types of pumps to fail. To prevent failure, the pumps are constructed of cast iron and stainless steel, and fitted with heavy-duty bearings and seals. The hardened, high-chrome impeller assembly can pass solids that would stall using most pumps available on the market. Torpedo G1275 pumps feature hardened impellers, which resist abrasion and wear, preventing wear and tear. This ensures a long pump life in aggressive situations. The pumps resist corrosion by means of an HDPE-encapsulated body, stainless steel water jacket, and polymer power cable. For more information, visit www.qedenv.com.
BALTIMORE AIRCOIL COMPANY
Nexus Modular Hybrid Cooler
The BAC Nexus Modular Hybrid Cooler was designed to minimize maintenance cost by reducing spray water volume by up to 60 percent, by allowing accessibility to all components at the front of the unit, and by operating dry when temperature and climate allow. What’s more, it reduces water treatment costs with its DiamondClear Design, which prevents stagnant water in the system and minimizes scale build-up and biological growth. The new optional, compact, and fully-integrated UV water disinfecting system rounds out the product’s enhanced water management system. For more information, visit www.baltimoreaircoil.com/nexus.
