TAH: Ratio Check Cap

TAH Industries Inc. introduces the Ratio Check Cap to complement its line of two-component u-TAH™ Universal Cartridges that fit into caulking guns. The Ratio Check Cap can be used as a proportioning device when only a small amount of material is needed. The u-TAH Cartridge automatically keeps A&B separate and proportions the correct amount into the mixing container. Simply attach the ratio check cap, dispense the amount needed and mix by hand. Next, remove the ratio check cap and re-seal the u-TAH Universal Cartridge for later use.

Union Process Inc. has announced the availability of a new S-Series Attritor specifically designed for cryogenic milling of aluminum powders. The S-50 has a special cover with a Teflon shaft seal for ultimate grinding results at low temperatures. It features a vent port for liquid nitrogen as well as ports for thermocouples. The S-50 Attritor is designed with a jacket around the exterior of the tank to maintain full vacuum at temperatures as low as -320°F. Featuring a gross tank volume of 81 gallons and a media volume of 37 gallons, this unit is constructed with a 40 HP motor with variable frequency drive (VFD). Since the mill was required to be explosion-proof, the VFD is mounted outside the hazardous area. In addition, an operator station with start/stop pushbuttons and a speed potentiometer (plus a dual meter station) is mounted on the machine.
