Wooden Pole Testing and Inspection
Pole Inspection.US’ pole testing device uses acoustic wave resonance in a fiber medium to test and inspect wooden poles. The nondestructive technology is based on the difference of time runs of acoustic waves in two mediums: through healthy wood fiber and through decay clusters inside the wooden pole.
Once the sonic velocity is known in the decay medium, the size of the decay clusters can be calculated inside the pole base on the run times of the sonic waves through the pole. The longer it takes for the sonic wave to run back and forth through the pole, the more decay there is. According to a utility company’s policies, Pole Inspection.US can apply chemicals on and inside the pole. The nonintrusive testing determines pole strength and if injection is needed.

Automatic Tire Chain Kit for International Terrastar
Onspot Automatic Tire Chains announces the release of its automatic tire chain kit for the new International Terrastar with air suspension. A kit is also available for the Terrastar with spring suspension.
The company’s tire chains offer the traction of a single set of conventional snow chains at the flip of a switch, without having to stop the vehicle. An electric switch mounted in the cab provides 12 volts to an air solenoid mounted on the vehicle’s frame rail. Compressed air to the solenoid is supplied from either the vehicle’s onboard air system or a 12-volt compressed air kit.
When the dashboard switch is activated the solenoid opens, allowing compressed air to enter the air chamber and lower the chainwheel so it contacts the inside of the tire. The friction between the tire and the rubber-covered chainwheel causes the chainwheel to rotate, creating enough centrifugal force to flail the chains out in front of the tire.

DrumQuik PRO Dispensing System is Easy to Use
The Environmental Protection Agency has mandated that manufacturers of diesel-engine powered vehicles reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emission levels. Many manufacturers turned to selective catalytic reduction (SCR) as a method for achieving the mandated targets, and urea-based diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) is the key ingredient of this process. A closed DEF-dispensing system helps maintain DEF integrity by eliminating the need to install, remove or clean a dip-tube.
With the DrumQuik PRO dispensing system from Colder Products Co., the dip-tube is installed by the chemical packager and travels with the DEF container. Upon arrival at the station or filling site, the rugged dispensing coupler can easily be connected by the user.

Hydraulic Fluid is Readily Biodegradable, Non-toxic
Terresolve Technologies has launched EnviroLogic 115, an International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 15 grade, readily biodegradable hydraulic fluid that is based on biodegradable, low-temperature base oil technologies and is a direct replacement for synthetic-based arctic hydraulic fluids. EnviroLogic 115 withstands an extremely broad range of temperatures in excess of 200F and in cold temperature to -60F.
EnviroLogic 115 is non-conductive and designed for use in equipment that might be operating near high voltage, providing safety to the machinery and its crew members. The fluid also offers high anti-wear performance, very good water separation, high corrosion and rust protection, as well as low foaming and air release characteristics. EnviroLogic 115 will meet or exceed the performance of conventional hydraulic fluids and meets the requirements of all major pump and equipment manufacturers.
This fluid is for extreme temperatures, and, because of its non-conductive properties, EnviroLogic 115 is well-suited for lift trucks and equipment carriers utilizing piloted controls.
If spilled or leaked during use, it will break down within 28 days into the safe, natural components of carbon dioxide and water. This protects delicate environments from incurring lasting damage and lowers the risk a company will be exposed to environmental fines and cleanup costs associated with the spill.
