Rollouts — June 2010
All KPI-JCI track-mounted impactor plants now come with the Mobile Star equipment monitoring system. The system allows any computer with an Internet connection to remotely monitor the location and operations of any of its Fast Trax equipment. It also has the ability to send e-mail notifications of operational events and logs the events for future reference and troubleshooting.
Loadrite says its new L-Series 2160 Advanced Payload Scale (APS) for Deere K-Series four-wheel-drive loaders extends the functionality offered by the loader’s embedded payload scale option. The APS features an easy-to-use, icon-driven interface and extensive data-collection and reporting capabilities.
Synthetic heavy-duty engine oil
Petro-Canada’s new Duron-E Synthetic 5W-40 Heavy Duty Engine Oil is specially formulated for both on- and off-highway fleets and is licensed to the latest API Heavy Duty Engine Oil category. The company says the oil extends drain intervals (along with an effective maintenance program), reduces engine wear, minimizes oxidative thickening, provides corrosion protection, and provides optimal top-up and cold start-up performance.
Chute improves conveyor loading
Custom-engineered Inertial Flow Transfer Chutes from Martin Engineering help control material delivery from the time it leaves the conveyor discharge pulley until it reaches the receiving belt. The chutes minimize impact and wear on liners and belts, while containing dust and spillage. Each chute design is tailored to suit the specific material characteristics and conveyor systems.
