RollOuts November 2010
Thompson Pump says its new OVT (oil-less vacuum technology) priming system, Compact pump series, and advanced Silent Knights offer revolutionary pump innovations. The OVT priming system (left) is said to offer multiple improvements over traditional vacuum priming systems — faster automatic priming, non-contacting rotors that eliminate internal wear, a dry-running system that requires no oil recirculation, and suction lifts of 28.4 inches Hg.
The company says its Compact pump series features a smaller compact size, lighter weight, fewer parts, less maintenance, and a lower price. The advanced Silent Knight has reduced noise levels by 3 to 6 dBA and features additional space inside the main compartment, a hinged pop-up roof, a plug-in float connection, an auto-start buzzer, a flashing beacon light, and a muffler mounted inside a separate front compartment.
Automated temperature monitoring
Axcess International says its new Dot MicroWireless-based IDs enhance location-based security monitoring, asset protection, workforce optimization, and safety capabilities such as “man-down” condition monitoring. The unit constantly monitors the ambient temperature in the workplace and automatically alerts users to dangerous temperature conditions.
TorcUP says its SV1000 hydraulic torque wrench pump is a perfect synthesis of continuous speed ratcheting and power torque. The pump is an upgrade to the EP1000, integrating a new style roll cage and different gauge setup. Its built-in circuitry allows the operator to choose the tool that will be used and the pump will automatically adjust the timing to that tool.
Specially designed pallet forks
New Holland Construction’s new pallet forks were specially designed for use with the company’s skid steers and compact track loaders. The assemblies are available with either 48- or 42-inch tines, with a choice of 5,500- or 4,000-pound-rated tine sets. The frame’s mounting angle ensures forward tilt for load pick-up and rollback for transporting loads.
