Three Mid-range Mobile Generators Introduced
Doosan Portable Power introduces three new mobile generators-the G70, G85 and G125-all powered by Tier 4 interim-certified Cummins diesel engines. The three models have been redesigned from the ground up to enhance operator efficiency and expand versatility through the development of several new options including the availability of the Quad Voltage selection feature. A Doosan-exclusive, the Quad Voltage control allows operators to choose voltage output with the simple flip of a switch.
The Quad Voltage feature allows these mobile generator models to be deployed in additional markets and applications. This feature eliminates the need to purchase a 600V-dedicated voltage generator model or add a bulky and expensive 600V transformer to a traditional multi-voltage generator.
The G70, G85 and G125 mobile generators feature Cummins QSB5 engines with a simple diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) after-treatment system, recognized as a superior Tier 4 interim solution because the DOC is a maintenance-free device and requires no regeneration.

Easy Locator, High Dynamic Range Ground Penetrating Radar
MALA's patent pending High Dynamic Range (HDR) ground penetrating radar (GPR) technology for utility detection delivers higher resolution and deeper depth penetration than prior GPR technology.
A single frequency transducer now performs the work of two-a direct result of MALA's engineering HDR concept that allows the detection and imaging of targets from small near surface service connections to deeper, larger transmission facilities. With the new zoom function and other upgrades incorporated into the HDR monitor, the user can zoom in for visualization of small near surface targets or out for maximum range to view the deepest targets. The detection limits span a broader range of various size utility targets-particularly non-metallic, non-conductive utilities such as plastic, asphalt composite, concrete or terracotta, and more.
Other features include a built-in differential global positioning system (DGPS) receiver and upgradeable GPS Mapper software for mapping utilities marked digitally with the HDR monitor. In addition, the screen capture function upgrade allows the user to create screen shots into a jpeg format to record and archive a locate on the screen. The Rough Terrain Cart (RTC) is available as well as the highly portable foldable version outfitted for urban streetscapes. The cost of the new Easy Locator HDR remains the same as previous models.

An estimated 120 lives are saved and 50,000 injuries prevented each year by complying with OSHA lockout/tagout standards, according to the OSHA Fact Sheet on Lockout/Tagout, from the U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, 2002. Lockout/tagout, or LO/TO, is a procedure where repairs are not made to machines until power sources are removed, locked out, tagged out and isolated. In response to this course of action, Graphic Products Inc. has released the Safety Lockout/Tagout Best Practices Guide.
A large percentage of workplace accidents, as well as OSHA citations, are related to not using LO/TO or not following LO/TO procedures. The best practices guide was developed to help reduce accidents by providing foundational information about LO/TO. Graphic Products produced the free best practices guide for its customers and will make copies available to anyone who needs to learn the basics of LO/TO.
Included in the guide are chapters about how accidental start-ups occur, a definition of stored energy, steps to install and remove lockout gear, a case study from an environmental health and safety professional, and an overview of commonly used LO/TO products and services. There is also a section about reducing the number of potential injuries and fatalities possible from entrapment in confined spaces such as tanks and tunnels. LO/TO supplies include DuraLabel tag stock, which includes holes to hang tags on piping systems and switches resists. Tag stock also resists moisture, UV rays and exposure to washdown chemicals. And, lockout padlocks, hasps and kits are included in the Graphic Products Facility & Safety Equipment catalog.
