50 June 2017 product news continued requirements. Along with basic selection techniques, it reviews the most common styles of couplings found on pump appli- cations across different industries today. It also provides the user with general guid- ance on the installation and maintenance requirements of each coupling type. Smart Level-detection Switch The Gladiator Admittance Smart Switch Series, a state-of-the-art level probe, has been designed to operate in tough indus- trial environments. It detects the level of liquids, slurries, powders or solids in a tank or vessel. The unit is suitable for a broad range of products and dielectric constants and can operate at tempera- tures of up to 842°F. The unit measures the capacitance or "admittance" between a probe and the wall of the container. As the level of the product rises to the level of the probe, or drops below that level, the ca- pacitance measured at the probe changes. The Gladiator detects this change and pro- duces an output. The units have been designed to oper- ate in tough industrial environments. It is simple to set up and calibrate, and has ex- cellent temperature stability. Several probe types are available to meet specific applica- tion requirements and all types are resistant to product build-up. The Gladiator commu- nicates using Modbus, HART or Profibus protocols. A remote amplifier can be posi- tioned up to 500 m (1,640 ft) away from the unit. The HawkLink GSM/CDMA commu- nication option allows a technician to com- mission, calibrate, test or check the output of the unit from anywhere in the world. Heavy-Haul Planetary Axle The P600 Series Tridem Heavy-Haul Plane- tary Axle has been designed for heavy-duty, long-haul, mining and logging applica- tions. "The new tridem is the next-gener- ation axle from our award-winning P600 series and one of many new products Mer- itor will bring to market during the next three years as part of the company's M2019 growth initiative," said Steve Luepke, direc- tor, off-highway, for Meritor. "Reduced lead time, aftermarket parts and support, and continued investment and innovation dif- ferentiate us in this market and support our strategy to be an industry leader." As with previous P600 products, the tridem was developed for global markets and validated in Meritor's world-class technical center in Troy, Michigan. Full COMPANY PROFILE-PAID ADVERTISEMENT Since 1978, Polydeck Screen Corporation has been the leading provider of modular screen- ing solutions for the aggregate, coal, and mining industries. Their extensive selection of screen media, frame systems, and accessories has helped companies save time, increase production output, extend screen service life and improve worker safety. Their screen media product lines include: Polydex ® – Modular polyurethane screen media in 1' x 1' and 1' x 2' sizes that feature the most extensive range of opening sizes, shapes and configurations available today. Since all polyurethane screen panels are made with a high quality injection molding process, surface features like dams and restricted flow bars are an integral part of the panel, not a glued or bolted on option. Rubberdex ® – Modular rubber screen media in 1' X 2' sizes that are available in several material compounds for flexibility or stiffness, microbial resistance or high temperature applications. Rubberdex ® panels are also injection molded under extreme high pressure to ensure homogeneous construction for optimum performance. Armadex™ – Bolt-down rubber solutions for the most abrasive, abusive scalping appli- cations. Armadex™ products incorporate a proprietary injection molding process to pro- vide extended wear life that outperform existing competitive options. Fully customizable in sizes up to 48" x 96" and 52" x 96" and up to 4" thick. Metaldex™ – New line of modular steel sections with polyurethane borders that can be used on Polydeck's PipeTop II™ stringer system. Available with either pin-style or PolySnap ® fastenings, the Metaldex™ line features high-strength welded wire in a va- riety of openings. This is a specialty product primarily used on targeted areas of a screen deck to achieve higher production results. All Polydeck screening solutions are accomplished through a philosophy of partnering with their customers to develop products and solutions that exceed the performance, durability and productivity of existing industry options while maintaining the highest standards of quality and customer service. And, as always, Polydeck screening solutions are backed by the most comprehensive Performance Guarantee in the industry. Polydeck Screen Corporation
