0612mplace1Protecting Motor Bearings With Shaft-Grounding Assemblies

Helwig Carbon’s Bearing Protector is a shaft-grounding assembly that diverts static and induced electrical currents in motor shafts away from bearings, thus protecting them from pitting and other damage. The manufacturer notes these easy-to-install-and-maintain products offer a more consistent, low-voltage drop than grounding straps, braids or makeshift solutions. Available for immediate delivery, stock kits fit most motors and shaft sizes. Custom kits are also available.

070812mplace2Filtering Diesel Fuel To Meet OEM Cleanliness Specs 

Oil Filtration Systems has announced a line of fuel filtration and coalescer equipment to remove particulate and water contamination from #2 Diesel and other combustion fuels. According to the company, these custom-built assemblies can ensure that filtered fuel meets or exceeds all stringent new oil-cleanliness specifications set by major manufacturers of turbine-generators and large off-road equipment. The systems remove fuel contaminants via two processes: First, high-efficiency filter elements remove particulate down to 1-micron to meet or exceed specifications as low as ISO 14/12/11. Then, high-efficiency coalescer and separator elements remove free water to levels under 50 PPM.
