Freelin-Wade Launches New Product: Liquiflex-POELiquiflex-POE
Coinciding with the release of the new catalog is the launch of Liquiflex-POE. This tubing is chemical resistant like polyethylene and flexible like polyurethane. Miller said, Polyethylene flexes but Liquiflex really bends. Not unlike Polyurethane, it springs right back and can be coiled or bonded into multi-tube bundles..
Liquiflex-POE is ideal for fluid handling applications in low-pressure, room temperature environments. These properties make it an excellent choice for food manufacturing and water applications. Another potential market is for use in spray bottles, particularly in applications where the tube needs to flex through a unique shape.
Founded in 1980, Freelin-Wade is North Americaas largest independent manufacturer of plastic tubing and hoses for industries as diverse as pneumatics, dental and promotions. The company employs more than 100 people at its McMinnville, Oregon plant. Privately held Freelin-Wade is a subsidiary of Coilhose Pneumatics. Worry-free Freelin-Wade tubing fits and arrives on time. With a verifiable on-time delivery rate exceeding 98%, customers know precisely when their order will arrive.

Miniature Solenoid Operators Control Inert Gasses and LiquidsSpartan Scientifics miniature solenoid operator pilot assembly Series 38KRE and 38KRI are specially designed to control inert gasses and liquids. Easily mounted to a flat manifold surface, these 2-way and 3-way solenoid pilot operator assemblies feature fully molded coil assemblies, available in either spaded or flying lead configurations, and standard turn locking manual override on the valve body. Two
provided screws quickly assemble the 38KRE and 38KRI to a manifold block and both feature the DIN 43650 B Industrial Standard quick connect interface. In addition, the 38KRI valve has an internally piloted exhaust which allows the normally open version to have all of the ports
contained within the valve body, making the assembly more economical. The 38KRE and 38KRI operate in a pressure range of 0 to 150 psi, a temperature range of -100 to +500C and have a response time of 8 to 15ms. The 38KRE has orifice sizes of 1.2 and 1.5mms and the 38KRI orifice sizes are 1.2, 1.4, and 1.6mms with exhaust orifice sizes 1.4 and 1.6mms.

Non-Spill Quick Disconnect Couplings Enhance Thermal Management SystemsColder Products Company will showcase a broad range of non-spill couplings and solutions for makers of electronic cooling equipment at the SemiTherm Symposium (booth #206). These innovative connectors enable leak-free connection and disconnection of critical fluid lines in liquid cooled servers, chillers and other electronic systems, without the risk of drips or spills.
Engineers today are constantly seeking more efficient ways to remove heavy thermal loads from dense electronic packaging,, said Dennis
Downs, Industrial Business Unit Manager, Colder Products Company. Non-spill couplings eliminate the disadvantages of a hard plumbed liquid cooling system and are now used to achieve better system flexibility and serviceability without compromising critical safety and reliability requirements..
Available for tubing ID ranges from 1/88 (3.2mm) to ¾ (19.0mm), plastic and metal connectors from Colder alleviate concerns inherent in handling fluids in the vicinity of critical electronics. They feature color coding for visual line identification, a variety of seal
materials for maximum media compatibility and a range of termination and thread types.
Colder Products Company, a world leader in the design and manufacture of quick disconnect couplings, will highlight the Non-Spill Series of couplings and other products for liquid cooling applications at SemiTherm (Booth # 206) in San Jose, March 23-24, 2011.

Polygon Company Announces Revolutionary New Cylinder SystemWALKERTON, IN Polygon Company is proud to announce their new pneumatic cylinder known as CTT (Constrained Tube Technology). CTT is a complete pneumatic system that allows the composite tube to be fitted within the confines of a thin-walled outer host. Thecomposite tube carries greater than 90% of the pressure vessel loads while the metallic host enables traditional assembly techniques such as welding, threading, retention rings, and etc.
A housing must be used to handle the additional pressure load for the complete tube assembly. Housings can be 80/20 aluminum or other machined metal. It could be any
material, even a wooden box,, said Paul Lashbrook, lead CTT engineer. Containing housings do not need to be cylindrical nor do they need to be honed or plated, and can even be a lowgradesteel. The housing provides a durable casing for CTT, supporting and protecting the lightweight cylinder,, Lashbook continued. The CTT cylinder is an entire thin-walled actuator system utilizing a new end cap attachment system.
The approach enables the design engineer to achieve the benefits of composite cylinder tubing such as corrosion resistance, improved seal life and unique fluid flow properties without manufacturing assembly changes.
For non-housed units, lower cost polymeric cylinders can provide the needed structure. In traditional cylinders, the metal walls provide both pressure containment and structural strength. With CTT, the inner composite sleeve does all the load work while the thermoplastic outer tube and connection elements provide seamless and cost-effective assembly,, said James Shobert, Polygon Company CEO. End caps can be fitted to secure the host tube and provide a very traditional cylinder outline for non-housed units as illustrated. This blends the high performance characteristics of advanced composites with the durability and economics of standard polymeric materials.
One consistent Achilles Heel of retrofitting composites into existing applications is being able to assemble the finished product using traditional metalworking techniques. Composite cylinder tubing cannot withstand drilling and maintain structural strength. This limited previous composite tubing to tie-rod cylinder applications almost exclusively. CTTTs tubing is not immune to this attachment problem. However, the required housings can be chosen to provide ample attachment points for mounting the assembly.
CTT has surpassed 27 million cycles under elevated testing pressure and is the perfect solution to demanding pressure vessel applications. Balancing performance and cost, it is uniquely suited for todayys lean operational environments.

DIRTY AND WET COMPRESSED AIR LINES?NEW UNIQUE PATENT PENDING LIQUID SEPARATOR REMOVES 99.9% OIL AND WATER FROM
COMPRESSED AIR LINES.
The Nex FlowTM X-StreamTM Liquid Super Separator uses a world patent pending
special radial nozzle centrifugal design to remove 99.9% of liquid mist (including
water and oil mist) without the need of a replaceable filter element. Standard
sizes are 9, 2, and 64 SCFM.
Unlike large upstream separators, these units are designed to be used upstream from
an air gun, blow-off product or any device using compressed air and may be used in
place of a standard air filter. If micron size is a concern, you can still use a
standard water or oil filter but the replaceable cartridge life will be dramatically
extended as the X-StreamTM Liquid Super Separator will remove the vast majority of
the liquids and mist.
Units come complete with an automatic drain, have extremely minimal pressure loss
and are virtually maintenance free. (Only the automatic drain may be subject to
wear and tear and is easily replaced.)

TCU Compensation UnitAutomatic insertion or gripping of precise components is often a challenge. To be
successful, the components have to be exactly aligned with one another. This results in high investment for the customer to ensure proper alignment. Even if components have very tight tolerances, it can be difficult to find the mounting or insertion position reliably. With the TCU compensation unit from SCHUNK, the users are able to overcome these challenges.
The system of SCHUNK, the leader in automation components, consists of two base plates, which are connected with each other via elastomer pads. Therefore, the
compensation unit can compensate in the X, Y and to some extent Z directions. Even
an angular error or a rotational error can be corrected, if required. Depending on
the size of the unit, the compensation path in X/Y-direction can be 2 to 4 mm, the
compensation angle can be between 1.55 and 3.55. Optionally, SCHUNK can equip the
TCU with a pneumatic locking device, which locks the module rigid. This prevents the
attached tooling or gripper from being moved during actuation of the handling
SCHUNK is a family owned operation and a global player in one. Totaling more than 60
years of experience, SCHUNK is a leading worldwide manufacturer of toolholding
components, workholding systems, and automation components. With a reputation for
high quality products, absolute precision, and continuous innovation, SCHUNK is a
