Eltherm
Electronic temperature controllers are designed for demanding applications and high loads.

Eltherm’s electronic temperature controllers include the ELTC-14 with cable glands and the ELTC/H-14 with sockets to connect heated hoses or heating mats. Both models can be used to control the temperature of up to two heating cables with a temperature range from 0–390 °C. The robust controllers have splashproof housings with transparent covers. The signal contact can be operated either as a potential-free alarm, status, or release contact. The controller reliably switches up to 20 amp resistive load using a hybrid relay. An operating voltage of 90–260 volts AC allows the controllers to be used all over the world.

Netzsch
Disperser targets forces to separate agglomerated particles.

The Omega Economic Disperser from Netzsch disperses agglomerated particles in an energy-efficient manner by optimizing turbulence, cavitation, and shear forces. High efficiency leads to less heat development, reduced energy consumption, and lower cooling water consumption. The flow design leads to low wear (even with abrasive substances) and lower maintenance costs. The system can be adapted to different operating conditions or formulations using the adjustable nozzle. The Omega is available in four sizes ranging from 30 L/h to 4000 L/h. The Omega won the Innovation Award for the Plant Engineering and Processing Components category at the Powtech 2013 conference.
