Roller Bearings for Industrial Gearboxes
NKE Austria (Steyr,
Austria) offers rolling
bearings for industrial
gearboxes that meet
the efficiency and reli-ability requirements
of a wide range of
sectors, such as general
systems, and heavy
machinery. NKE manufactures over 3,000 different variants, which enable an enormous
variety of application possibilities. The bearings are suitable for
high radial loads and moderate to high speeds. Made from pure
rolling bearing steel, they have an exceptional lifespan, while the
raceways’ high surface quality reduces the operating temperature
and wear. The inner and outer rings of the cylindrical roller bearings can be fitted separately, simplifying installation.

Firmer Fit Earplugs
Honeywell’s new Howard Leight
(Smithfield, RI) FirmFit earplugs feature
a softer, more comfortable fit and better noise protection than most leading
classic-style foam earplugs. According to
the company, Howard Leight FirmFit was
engineered to enhance the wearing experience for individuals who prefer a firmer
fit in order to “feel” their earplugs in their ears, and who are
accustomed to the familiar cylindrical or barrel-shaped earplug.
• More effective hearing protection, and less pressure in the ear
canal than most older foam models.
• Effective 30 NRR dB hearing protection and are easy to roll
down and insert, with plenty of time to adjust for a proper fit.
• A bright orange color for high-visibility identification.
• Availability in corded and uncorded versions.

Hand Crank & Motorized Hose Reels
Coxreels (Tempe, AZ) introduces the all-new 1600 Series hand
crank and motorized hose reels. This feature-rich reel has a wide
array of components configurations and many possible sizes to
choose from, including a generous variety of drum and disc
size combinations for many
dimensions and hose length
capacities. The footprint of the
reel was designed to meet the
most demanding requirements
in the industry and fit any
allocated space in virtually all
equipment. Additional features
• A unique all-welded “hybrid”
frame with the strength of an “A” frame mounted on a box
frame for superior reel structure.
• Options like a universal bracket kit to accommodate the bevel
gear rewind system and hose guide rollers at various angles and
three gear ratio idler gears to reduce speed and increase torque
on motorized versions.
• A patent pending 3-way industrial duty pin lock that can
rewind, lock, and disengage the reel for free unwind.

Universal Conduit Elbow
The new, patent-pending
T&B Rigid Fittings BlueKote
Universal Conduit Elbow (LU)
Form 8 from Thomas & Betts
<< www.tnb.com; 901-252-5000>>
(Memphis, TN) replaces four
conduit body configurations,
resulting in a four-to-one
reduction of SKUs. The T&B Rigid Fittings BlueKote LU Form 8
enables fiber-optic cable to be run in a ¾-inch system, instead of
a two-inch system, and still maintain the cable bend radius, which
provides a reduction in the time needed for installation. The
angled covered port facilitates wire pulling, and uses standard
covers. As the BlueKote LU Form 8 is UL Listed as an enclosure,
splices are permitted inside of it. The BlueKote LU Form 8 is rated
for 40-percent wire fill, avoiding the need to de-rate the system.
Non-Flammable Solvent-Based Aerosol
ZYP Coatings, Inc. (Oak Ridge, TN) announces
its new, unique Boron Nitride Aerosol Lubricoat-NF, a non-flammable aerosol spray based on the
Necosolv non-flammable solvent system with the
new, “green” Solstice HFO-1234-ze propellant.
Thus, the useful properties of Boron Nitride can
be achieved with a non-flammable, fast-drying
solvent-based aerosol-can. Boron Nitride is chemically inert – nonreactive/nonwetting with most
molten metals, glasses, and slags – providing
non-stick, release, and barrier-layers to reactive
materials. With the new nonflammable aerosol,
thin/uniform fast-drying layers can readily be
applied to most any substrate.
