Garlock Sealing Technologies has launched the Multi-SwellTM gasket, a proprietary new gasketing material. The self-loading general service gasket creates its own load when it comes into contact with water, virtually eliminating the most common cause of gasket failure - insufficient load. By creating its own load, the gasket can adapt to all types of flange designs, making it ideal for a broad range of applications, including water pumps, valves and cast iron flanges. The gasket can seal flanges in less than perfect condition, minimizing maintenance.

The Mercoid Division of Dwyer Instruments is offering a new capacitive level transmitter, the CRF2. Using impulse RF admittance measurement, the device senses capacitance changes resulting from the height of the material in the tank between the probe and the tank wall. This capacitive technology has no moving parts - no jams, no wear, nothing to break and no maintenance. The sensor comes with either rigid or flexible probe depending on application installation need and probe length required.

Industrial Scientific has released a new “bump” test feature for the GasBadge® line of personal and dockable single gas monitors. The feature is designed to increase safety by encouraging and facilitating more frequent “bump” tests. It allows customers to establish a testing frequency based on best practices, company policy or local regulatory agencies. Once the user-prescribed period of time has elapsed, the instrument indicates that a “bump” test is overdue with visual and audible alarms.
