The Canusa SuperCase (CSO, from Canusa, is a heat-shrinkable casing for pre-insulated pipes such as district heating pipes. The CSC combines a crosslinked high density polyethylene outer layer and a non-crosslinked polyethylene inner layer with a high shear and peel adhesive to provide a high quality reliable system for protection and sealing of joints. By focusing the full strength of the crosslinked shrinkable casing directly onto a high shear and peel adhesive, CSC provides the strongest seal possible for pipeline joints. The one-piece tubular configuration includes the functionality of shrink sleeves in its ends. As a result, the extra step of applying shrink sleeves on the end of a casing during field work is eliminated. Circle #225

RF Neulink

The RF Neulink DAC9600 radio remote terminal unit (RTU) offers a selectable "mimic" mode which slaves one unit's I/O ports to the other unit's corresponding I/O ports. In this application, a remote DAC9600 multiple I/O is used to sense and control external electromechanical devices. Another DAC9600 can be at a central monitoring location with it's I/O's interfaced to indicators which display status and switches which initiate the activation or deactivation of the remote devices. Two RF Neulink DAC9600 RTUs can the perform remote control and monitoring without a computer or external radio service. Circle #226

Solar Turbines

Solar Turbines has shipped its first 13 428-kW (18,000 hp) Titan 130 industrial gas turbine mechanical-driven to PG&E Gas Transmission-Northwest's compressor station 8 near Wallula, WA. The Titan 130 turbine package is being installed in a new turnkey facility provided by Solar Turbines. PG&E Gas Transmission-Northwest selected the Titan 130 gas turbine because the two-shaft, variable-speed machine offers an excellent match for the station's increased compression requirements and a high simple-cycle thermal efficiency of 34.5% at ISO conditions. The unit will drive a Dresser-Rand 60 PDI centrifugal compressor. PG&E GT-NW has ordered a second Titan 130 gas turbine package to be installed near Klamath Falls, OR. Circle #227

Established options include vent-to-atmosphere and pipe away connections, as well as oversized pressure and vacuum ports for greater flow capacity. "All-weather" coating to protect valves in extreme climates is also available, as well as replaceable and interchangeable pressure and vacuum seat rings. Circle #228

Ingersoll-Dresser Pump Company

The new HOC3 chemical process pump from Ingersoll-Dresser Pump Company features an enhanced, more rigid shaft that is larger in diameter than competitive process pump shafts, resulting in minimal shaft deflection and extended seal and bearing life. The pump's bearings, larger than other leading brand pumps, provide a higher load handling capability and place lighter stress loads on the pump's seals. Additionally, the pump's redesigned oil sumps, which on some pump sizes are over twice as large as those found in traditional process pumps, keep bearings cooler and cleaner. Circle #229
