Clean combustion REF: MMPR 237

product237Benefits to the industry: Engine exhaust system emissions are subject to continuous reduction due to European legislation. To meet these challenges, engine manufacturers are demanding high-quality fuels with special properties.
Fuchs Lubricants has developed a special fuel additive to improve petrol properties. Maintain Gasoline Plus is a multifunctional high-performance fuel additive concentrate intended to be diluted with commercially available petrol.
The additive is self-mixing and should be added to the fuel tank before fuelling.
Sustainability: It does not contain any metal based components, making combustion totally ashless. Due to the active components, the product supports and promotes a clean and complete combustion of the fuel. This saves fuel, reduces CO2 and other harmful emissions, and maintains the power of the engine. mmpr

Separate oil REF: MMPR 236

product236Benefits to the industry: The highly-advanced and proudly South African ProSpin oily water separator available through Procon Environmental Technologies marks a new era for industrial operations, which can now achieve the highest standards of internationallyrecognised discharge limits.
ProSpin is based on HiPer hydrocyclone designs that use strong centrifugal forces to separate oil and other contaminants from water.
Maintenance: The high separation efficiency, low pressure drop, and low maintenance of the system is a major advantage for local operations seeking to meet discharge limits.
ProSpin hydrocyclone technology is able to remove 95% of 10 to 15 micron oil droplets from the water.
Back-up service: Procon stresses that the company remains committed to servicing and maintaining these systems as part of its valueadded offering to its clients via its in-house service team. mmpr

Pipe expectancy increase REF: MMPR 235

product235Benefits to the industry: A state-of-the-art extrusion line has enabled DPI Plastics to increase the maximum external diameter of its range of Durodrain uPVC sewer pipes to 630mm – making it the largest product of its kind manufactured in Africa.
Following the installation of the German-engineered Krauss Maffei extrusion line in mid-2013, DPI became the only plastic pipe manufacturer in sub-Saharan Africa capable of producing 630 mm bore PVC pipes.
PVC is more cost-effective and boasts a longer life expectancy, when compared to industry standard steel, concrete and high density polyethylene (HDPE), which are often prone to corrosion damage caused by methane and chemicals over-extended periods.
Sustainability: The pipes are manufactured in an ISO 9001-accredited factory that minimises wastage by recycling materials, which ensures a reduction in the overall carbon footprint during the production process. mmpr

Frequency inverters REF: MMPR 234

product234Benefits to the industry: New Movitrac LTP-B frequency inverters, designed for use in various noncontrol cabinet applications, are available in the local market through drive engineering company SEWEurodrive.
Movitrac LTP-B frequency inverters are optimally matched to meet the requirements of applications outside a control cabinet.
These frequency inverters have been designed and developed for controlling the speed of a synchronous and synchronous motors without an encoder and are particularly cost effective in conveyor and hoist applications, as well as in fans and pumps.
Sustainability: There is also a built-in brake chopper circuit, which can be used with an external braking resistor to convert regenerated energy from the motor into thermal energy. mmpr

No pipe dream REF: MMPR 233

product233Benefits to the industry: Water infrastructure can be substantially improved with 600mm coated steel pipes that feature a 6mm wall thickness bevel ended three layer polyethylene (3LPE) coating.
Incledon steel pipes feature a solvent-free epoxy (Sigmaline) lining to provide improved resistance against water. The Sigmaline lining also ensures greater strength and durability of the buried pipeline. What's more, it is also cost effective without compromising on performance.
For enhanced protection the steel pipes also feature a 3LPE coating. The 3LPE system is applied first by coating bare steel pipe with a primer, then applying a fusion-bonded epoxy coat over the primer and lastly a finishing coat of polyethylene. mmpr

Cost reducing batteries REF: MMPR 197

product197Benefits to the industry: Linde Material Handling (MH) is incorporating the first warehouse technology trucks to feature lithiumion batteries into its product portfolio.
As an initial step, the Linde T16 to T20 pedestrian pallet trucks will be available to order with a load capacity of between 1,6t and 2,0t.
The special feature of the solution from Linde is that the truck (including the truck control unit and electronics), battery, and charger come together to form a complete
system, the various components of which communicate via CAN bus. This setup makes it possible to harness the full potential of the system in terms of performance, and capitalise on all of the benefits offered by the new battery technology.
Sustainability: In turn, this leads to considerable reductions in energy costs and increasing levels of productivity. At the same
time, thanks to a series of precise adjustments and fine-tuning, the system complies with even the most stringent safety requirements. mmpr
The product can be applied to pumps, conveyors, chains, and fans. mmpr

Diverse lubrication REF: MMPR 196

product196Benefits to the industry: Lubrication systems that offer regulated and controlled supply of lubricant to a lubrication point is a must.
The automatic lubrication system SAL Select offered through Safspec is available in two convenient sizes (60cm3/125cm3) especially suited for installations in tight and restricted areas.
It can be used for inside or outside applications ranging from -20° to 60°C. The wide operating temperature range makes it suitable for many applications indoors and out.

The product can be applied to pumps, conveyors, chains, and fans. mmpr

Water saving techniques REF: MMPR 195

product195Benefits to the industry: ThermoWise has launched a new range of environmentally-friendly showerheads, designed to reduce water and
electricity consumption.
Sustainability: The installation of energy-saving showerheads helps to save water, reduce energy consumption, and also minimises the risk of running out of hot water. An important feature is environmental protection. Conventional electric and gas water heating systems produce greenhouse gases, which contribute to the greenhouse effect.
By using less hot water, greenhouse gas pollution is reduced.
Backup services: The company offers a technical advisory, installation, maintenance and support service throughout Southern Africa. mmpr
