Available in 15 through 100 millimeters and various inch shaft sizes, ETP Express bushings are a great choice for new and retrofit applications particularly in automated machinery applications. With single screw installation, ETP Express locks securely into position, making it a verifiable installation position for maintaining ISO procedures and quality maintenance records. One mounting screw equals one torque value. By comparison, most mechanical bushings require torqueing at multiple locations. With multiple screw mechanical bushings, torqueing at one location easily changes the result at an adjacent location with a loss of concentricity. For more information, visit www.zero-max.com.
HEI Wet Electrostatic Precipitator System
A breakthrough in the advancement of state-of-the-art fine particulate control, the HEI WESP System incorporates a unique discharge electrode technology that can be sized to specific applications, and concentrates a high intensity ionizing corona in strategic areas within the collecting tubes instead of distributing it along the entire length of the tubes’ treatment area. Other key features of the system are the available methods for collection tube cleaning, gas precleaning, and conditioning.

xLC® Stator Adjustment Unit
The xLC® stator adjustment unit allows to re-adjust the iFD Stator® 2.0 several times to prolong the operating life of both rotor and stator significantly before a change—caused by wear—is needed. The functioning of the xLC® system is based on the iFD Stator® 2.0. It grips the flange of the elastomer part to pull or push it inside the housing. In case of wear axial pressure on the elastomer part leads to increased tension and restores the sealing line. For more information, visit www.netzsch.com.

IVAX: Intelligent Verification and Control System
Based on customer input, we found that verifying the correct operation of each pump is a difficult task. Currently, this is done manually. With IVAX, all of this can be done automatically without any errors. It is even possible to maintain an automatic log to verify events back in time. Controlling an Aquflow chemical metering pump can be done by controlling the capacity of the pump via the electrical capacity control actuator (ECCA), the speed of AC motors via the variable frequency drive (VFD) or DC motors via SCR.
