AZTEC BOLTING SERVICES INC.
Electric Tensioner Pump
Aztec Bolting Services Inc., a leading provider of bolting tools to the natural gas, oil, petrochemical, and wind energy industries for the past twenty-five years, announces its latest tool, a new generation electric tensioner pump designed for critical bolting applications, specifically in the wind and power generation industries. “This pump is taking tensioning to a new era,” says Larry Garza, owner of Aztec Bolting Services Inc. “The tool has a unique footprint; it is 65 percent smaller than anything on the market. Portability and compact design are key in our industry and this tool has them both.” Other key design features include the fast pressure-up and retract and a hi-tech, calibrated digital gauge, multi-functional intrinsically safe remote control, and certified one point lift.

EWG Electronic Position Transmitter
A new electronic position transmitter designed to simplify end position adjustments for actuators has been developed by AUMA. The EWG is compatible with its predecessor, the RWG, which ensures rapid replacements and retrofits. Advantages provided by the EWG include continuous recording of the valve’s current position, and transmission as an analogue 0 – 20 mA or 4 – 20 mA signal to the control system. Inverse operation is also possible. End position adjustment is simple and straightforward, as tools are not required. Valve position detection is contactless and avoids wear. Should a power failure occur, the EWG reliably recognises the current valve position, even if the device has been operated via the handwheel during the outage period. Once power supply is restored, a position signal is issued immediately, without the need for renewed setting or reference operation, and battery back-up is not required.

CE Approved Electromechanical Control Panels Series EMD
SJE-Rhombus’s CE approved Electromechanical Control Panels series EMD designed for international applications control one or two submersible single phase or three phase electric pumps in water and wastewater applications. The panels are provided with a thermal overload protection relay incorporated in an IP 55 weatherproof cabinet. The EMD control panels operate pumps based on signals provided from liquid level floats or pressure switches. Four models are available; EMD1S, EMD1T, EMD2S, EMD2T and accommodate single phase voltage (240VAC) or three phase (400VAC) voltage 50Hz or 60Hz applications.

KB ELECTRONICS, INC.
AC Digital Drive KBWK-23D
KB Electronics, Inc. of Coral Springs, Florida, a manufacturer of AC drives and DC drives from fractional through 5 horsepower, introduces a new AC digital drive to their current product line. The new KBWK-23D operates with either a 115 or 230V AC line, is housed in a NEMA 1 / IP 20 enclosure, and features a digital display with LED status indicators. This drive is rated for 3-phase induction motors to ½ horsepower. Common Sense Programming (CSP™) is included, which organizes parameters into easy to understand intuitive groups. The UL approved proprietary current limit software provides motor overload protection, prevents motor burnout, and eliminates nuisance tripping. The KBWK drive offers energy savings using only the power the application requires. GFCI software allows the drive to operate with Ground Fault Circuit Interruption circuit breakers or outlets.

Godwin Dri-Prime® NC350 Pump
The Godwin Dri-Prime NC350 is the largest pump in the NC line, a powerful pump offering flows to 6,530 GPM and discharge heads to 160 feet. The higher flow capabilities are ideal for wastewater applications where other pumps could clog or fail. The NC350 features patented Flygt N-technology with an innovative self-cleaning impeller for non-clog performance. NC series pumps are engineered to deliver sustained high efficiency, lower energy and fuel costs, and reduced unplanned downtime. This makes the NC350 a best-in-class portable pump suitable for both sewage and clean water applications. The NC350 can be customized with a diesel engine or electric motor. It is also available as a Critically Silenced unit or as a Godwin DBS for pump station backup. For more information, visit www.godwinpumps.com.
