ESAB Introduces New Bulk Welding Wire

For the last several years, the industry standard in bulk welding wire has been ESAB’s Marathon Pac. Now, ESAB introduces its second generation Marathon Pac. This new addition in filler metals has a unique octagon shape and offers the same advantages as ESAB’s previous design and includes several improvements. It allows operators to reduce their impact on the environment. The Marathon Pac, manufactured from recyclable and environmentally friendly corrugated board coated with a thin moisture barrier, makes it easier to process for recycling. This lower density corrugated material has a broader range of use than high-density material, making it simple to break down and discard in a cardboard recycling container when finished.

Increased efficiency is another advantage. The wire in the Marathon Pac is spooled into the carton using a technique that eliminates cast and helix as the wire exits from the welding gun. This straight wire allows for easier feed, reduces feed motor wear and enables precise placement of the wire in the weld joint. The added benefit is more arc time, fewer weld defects and less wear and tear on equipment.

Available in a variety of wire sizes and types and in package weights from 600 lb. to 1050 lb., there is a new ESAB Marathon Pac to fit every bulk package wire need.

Hoffer Mini-Flowmeter Low-Flow Turbine

The Hoffer mini-flowmeter handles low flow measurement for service on clean, low and moderate viscosity liquids used commonly by industrial and laboratory users. Flow ranges from .007 to 3.5 gpm are available in 12 overlapping sizes. Several bearing types are available including hybrid ceramic ball bearings and sleeve constructions in tungsten carbide and carbon composites depending on media compatibility. 316 stainless steel construction with ms flared end fittings are standard on the Mini-Flow Series. Our applications group will assist you in the selection of options to optimize your meter per your application. The mini-flowmeter provides users with a linearity of 1% (after linearization) over a 10:1 flow range. The Mini-Flow Series requires linearization which is provided by all Hoffer electronics. The mini-flowmeter may be applied as a high accuracy flow transducer for many low flow gas applications as well.

New Antenna Resists AIS Interference

Naval Electronics launches a new omni-directional wide band antenna (0.1-26.5 and 40-890 MHz) for TV-FM-AM, called Mark 32ALC. A true maritime antenna, it is especially designed to withstand any interference from high output transmitters in close by frequencies, such as from the increasing AIS-traffic (Automatic Identification System) working in the VHF-band.

New Simrad SART Type-Approved

The Simrad SA50 Search and Rescue Transponder (SART) has received Type Aproval from QinetiQ. After completing all the required tests a certificate of Type Approval was issued that states that the SA50 meets all IMO requirements and can now be 'Wheelmarked' to allow its use on board all vessels covered by SOLAS regulations. The SA50 is unique due to its exceptionally small size. Through the use of sophisticated design and materials the SA50 is reported to be the smallest SART currently available. Its simple tubular shape and overall height of only 220 mm, make the SA50 ideal for pre-packing in liferafts. Additionally, it is designed to be very simple to arrange for the SART to be automatically activated when the liferaft is deployed.

811HT and 811 Suction and Return Hoses

Parker's 811HT High-Temperature and 811 Suction and Return Hoses are featured in a new product bulletin published by Parker Hannifin Corporation's Hose Products Division. Bulletin 4400-B51-US contains detailed product information such as hose construction, applications, and temperature range. Parker 811HT and 811 Suction and Return hoses meet or exceed SAE 100R4 requirements and offer a one-half SAE minimum bend radius. The 811HT Suction and Return Hose is ideal for high-temperature applications.

Moldable Epoxy Chocking Material

Dynamold developed and patented a novel approach to epoxy chock manufacturing that combines the concept of hard epoxy chocks with pre-catalyzed epoxy chock technology. The DMS 4-828 Moldable Chocking Material is a dimensionally accurate, easy-to-apply, millable epoxy chock material. Injected from a meter-mix machine and compressed into a specified thickness, the DMS 4-828 material is cured at the specified thickness, then cut precisely into specified shapes which can then be used as a hard chock, or it can be pre-coated by Dynamold, Inc. with a thin, pre-catalyzed film, then flash frozen and shipped in dry ice for later application.

Simrad Offers New Monitor Sizes

The choice of screen sizes in Simrad's high-end monitors range has increased with the release of the CF10 and CF12. The CF Series monitors are now available from 10 to 23-in. providing excellent viewing quality and image clarity for boats of all sizes. The CF10 is a robust but compact 10.4-in. model with an 800 x 600 resolution running on SVGA. The CF12 is a 12.1-in. model with a 1024 x 768 resolution running on XGA. Both monitors, like the entire CF range, feature multi-display, DVI, RGB, composite video S-Video signal and can run on AC or DC power. Both monitors will be available as of January 1, 2005.
