The lubricants feature a base oil and additive package that combines eco-friendliness with high load-carrying capacity, good adhesion to surfaces, and anti-wear and anti-corrosive effects. Due to their low-temperature behavior, the greases can be pumped in centralized lubricating systems down to minus 22 degrees F and sprayed, even at 32 degrees F, allowing the lubricants to be used over a wide temperature range. Klüber 800-447-2238 METALS ANALYZER The new Spectroport from Spectro Analytical Instruments is a portable arc/spark optical emission spectrometry (OES) metals analyzer for analyzing elements at low and critical levels. It features point-and-shoot performance, flexible portability, ease of use and mini- mal standardization. The device is designed to be as fast as a handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzer, with many analyses taking only a few seconds. Unlike handheld XRF ana- lyzers, the Spectroport can analyze elements such as carbon, sulfur, phosphorus, boron, lithium, beryllium, calcium, silicon, magnesium and aluminum at low and critical levels. Spectro Analytical Instruments 800-548-5809 FILTER ELEMENTS Swift Filters' new series of metal-felt filter ele- ments are engineered for high-pressure, highly corrosive, highly viscous and radioactive appli- cations. The elements incorporate filter media made of thin filaments of nonwoven stainless steel. The metal felt employed is highly porous, which allows for high flow rates of up to 20 times those of other media types as well as long life. Random fiber filtration (metal felt) can also pro- vide absolute particle retention, longer on-stream time and high dirt-holding capacity for less than 60-micron filter elements. Swift Filters 877-887-9438 WIRE ROPE LUBRICANT The new Biogen marine rope dressing from Rocol is an environmentally acceptable lubricant (EAL) that is intended to help extend the operational life of critical wire ropes. It is formulated specifically to perform in the most challenging industr y conditions, including any where the environment is wet, humid and salt-saturated. The formulation uses a unique additive package that provides a high-performance hydrophobic barrier and water wash-off resistance in wet and submerged conditions. Rocol +44 (0)113-232-2600
