Mencom’s 1 1/8” MIN size III series circular connector has been redesigned to deliver better connectivity and stability in harsh factory environments. The coupling nut has been enlarged, which not only makes the installation process easier by giving a wider knurl area for better gripping, but also provides a more stable connection.
transfluid’s DB 40220-3A-CNC ‘t bend’ tube bending machine has replaced the need to weld bends onto large tubes a long time ago, as it lowers the production costs. In addition to that, the bending systems save up to 60 percent of the production time for tubes with a diameter up to 400mm. The fast setting-up of the machine, at times in less than 10 minutes, also plays a crucial role. Equipped with a fully automated CNC control system, the transfluid units can process tubes with thin and thick walls and made of any material, even with radii of 1.5 x tube diameter or more. These tight bending radii are achieved with minimal thinning of the tube walls. This leads to benefits also in terms of space on board ships.
