The Merkel Radiamatic R 55 radial-shaft sealing ring has an integrated deflector lip that protects wind-turbine systems against harsh environments and eliminates the need for a second seal. The seal does not require functional compromises and can even offset radial play or shaft eccentricity without neglecting its sealing and deflecting functions....More
Long ionizing bars eliminate static electricity on paper, film and plastics that are up to 96-in. (2,438-mm) wide. The profile of the electrically powered ionizing bar allows it to fit in the confined spaces of machinery, where the static charge is generated. A high concentration of positive and negative ions produce fast static decay, neutralizing any surface within 2 in. (51 mm) of the bar....More

Reclassifying mufflers can be installed directly into the exhaust port of cylinders, valves, and other air-powered equipment to reduce work-area noise and harmful oil mist. They are easy to retrofit to new and existing installations. Mufflers reduce noise up to 35 dBA to help meet EU noise directive (86/188/EEC) and OSHA standard 29 CFR-1910.95....More
GV oil-sealed rotary-screw vacuum pumps combine oil-sealed rotary screw technology and advanced screw design. These systems operate in 1 to 500-mbar pressure ranges. Two screw elements rotate at slow speeds, so the GV runs at sound levels as low as 69 dBA. The technology is contract-free and, thus, wear-free. The GV is outfitted with oversized motors and a highly efficient oil-mist separation....More
The Van der Graaf Drum Motor is used to move a conveyor belt. The motor, gear drive and all moving parts are enclosed inside the drum. One advantage of this scheme is that the belt itself serves as a heat sink for motor heat....More
