Hazwaste manifest software
J.J. Keller & Associates has introduced Keller-Soft Hazwaste Manifest Manager software, a tool designed to automate completion of Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest forms – use of which is required by the Environmental Protection Agency for all hazardous waste shipments. The software, according to J.J. Keller, creates and prints forms, then stores them electronically so users can access previous forms and labels to assist with reporting and resending of like shipments. It also offers drop-down boxes designed to allow users to select information that has been keyed before, such as designated facility, description or transporter/generator. Users also can preview forms and labels before printing in order to make any necessary corrections. J.J. Keller says the software is compatible with its Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest forms, as well as forms produced by competitors. The Keller-Soft Hazwaste Manifest Manager also creates, prints and saves nonhazardous-waste manifests, as well as hazardous-waste package markings and labels, according to the company.

Gladhand seal with dust flaps
Phillips Industries has redesigned its poly seal with integrated dust flaps, which the company says makes it easier to install with its slightly tapered lip. When not in use, a trailer’s air system can be contaminated with dust and debris entering through an unprotected gladhand. The grey polyurethane dust flap integrated in the gladhand seal is used with a filter screen, creating a barrier designed to catch dust and debris before it enters the air system.

Extended-life coolant extender
Penray has introduced a heavy-duty Extended Life Coolant Extender (part number 900032) to help ensure that extended-life coolant maintains its engine protection properties against pitting, cavitation and corrosion for 600,000 miles, 6,000 hours or six years, before another coolant change is needed. The extended-life coolant extender offers effective, long-term corrosion protection for aluminum, brass, cast iron, steel, solder and copper, the company says; it also provides excellent heat transfer and superior protection in high operating temperatures, and reduces hard water scale. There is no silicate dropout or gel formation during use or storage, according to Penray.

Light bar message center
Ametek Dixson has added a light bar message center to its modular Next Generation Instrumentation (NGI) system. The LMC is designed to receive messages from the vehicle data bus and signals from discrete switches and analog sensors throughout the vehicle; the LMC then processes the data to drive telltales and gauge pointers, display vehicle information or broadcast messages on the vehicle data bus. The LMC features SAE J1587/1939 (CAN) data bus communication; automatic self-test on each power-up; 11 switched inputs and seven analog inputs; two switched outputs; an audible warning device; push-button, selectable displays and test functions; selectable primary display screens; backlight control for LCD display and NGI gauges; and 12- or 24-volt operation. The amber backlit LCD contains two 20-character lines. The LMC can drive up to 12 NGI gauges and contains 18 telltales, each illuminated by red, green, blue, amber or white LEDs. The message center meets all SAE J1455 and J1113 requirements for vehicular instrumentation, the company says, and was developed to withstand harsh, off-road conditions.

Convex mirror with turn indicator
Hadley says its TIC (turn indicator convex) mirror allows a turn indicator to be added to a West Coast mounting system without having to replace the main mirror or spec a separate turn indicator, because it’s built into the glass of the convex mirror. The LED lighting component is mounted within the glass and allows the indicator to function as part of the mirror, which the company says eliminates clutter over using a standard convex mirror combined with a “lollipop” secondary indicator attachment to the West Coast bracket. The 8-inch TIC is offered in center or offset mounting and also comes in a heated version.

Hose assemblies to help provide
added protection against corrosion, Sloan Transportation Products has introduced MaxxDuty Hose Assemblies that feature a new plating material designed to better withstand damage caused by the new de-icing agents now being used by many municipalities and private snow removal companies to treat highways. Of particular susceptibility to corrosion are the steel crimped fittings attached to the brass part of the hose assembly. The MaxxDuty plating material originally was designed for the military in naval applications to protect parts exposed to severe salt spray that often required frequent replacement due to corrosion.

Air brake fittings
Parker Prestomatic Push-In Air Brake Fittings are designed to speed up air system assembly, disassembly and re-assembly, especially in cramped areas. The stainless steel-tube support, available in sizes 1/4-inch and above, is engineered for maximum flow and performance, and the collet design helps facilitate a positive grip on the tubing. The fittings are available in SAE and metric thread sizes – with a pre-applied pipe thread sealant – and in a wide range of configurations, including straight, rigid elbow and swivel elbows when alignment is required. No tools are needed to achieve a positive seal, according to the company.

Parker’s Composite Push-To-Connect Air Brake Fittings are designed to offer fast, simple assembly and tight tolerances to ensure resistance to contamination and optimal performance. The body is made from a strong, lightweight and impact-resistant composite material, with a brass shoulder on the collet for increased side load capabilities, a stainless-steel retained collar for burst strength at high temperatures, and a staked-in tube support for easy assembly, according to the company. All threads feature a substantial hex to facilitate wrenching. The fittings – available in 1/4-, 3/8-, 1/2-, 5/8- and 3/4-inch tube sizes – come in a full range of configurations, including elbows, tees, straight and special-order jump sizes. The fittings are rated for vacuum to 250 psi, with a working temperature range from
-40 to +200 degrees F, and are designed for use with SAE J844 air brake tubing.

Modular barrier system
Rite-Hite Aftermarket Corp. says its GuardRite Sure-Stop Barrier System is designed to be strong enough to stop a fork truck. The 8-inch-high barrier is constructed from 3/16-inch formed cold rolled steel, and is reinforced with 7-inch-wide by 3/8-inch full-height gussets for strength and durability, according to the company; when anchored to a concrete floor, the Sure-Stop can stop a 10,000-pound fork truck with little or no deflection. The safety-yellow painted barrier system – available in 18-, 24-, 36-, 48- or 60-inch lengths – comes with anchoring hardware to facilitate easy installation. The barrier system’s modular design helps makes it easy to adapt to many configurations; it can be used as a standalone barrier to protect building walls, or it can be incorporated with other systems to create a highly visible barrier.

Intake manifold for Cummins engine
Fastcore says its CFM+ Intake manifold for the 5.9L Cummins engine flows 40 percent more air than the stock and much more air than any other intake on the market, while also flowing much cooler air. The manifold is made from high-temperature engineering composite that transfers heat 900 times slower than the cast aluminum material of all other intakes, according to the company.

Blind rivet fastener
The HuckLok Blind Rivet Fastener, a high-strength structural rivet from Alcoa Fastening Systems, is designed to offer a generous quarter-inch grip range, effectively joining a wide range of assemblies from truck bodies to HVAC. The extended grip range allows the HuckLok to join assemblies from 1/8- to 7/8-inch thick; the fastener’s large footprint, or “bulb,” spreads the load over a broader area, resulting in a more durable and dependable joint, the company says. The wider grip range is due to the shear ring; after the maximum clamp has been achieved from minimum to maximum grip, the shear ring breaks free from the pin and settles into the appropriate catch groove. In addition, the HuckLok – available in 3/16- and 1/4-inch sizes in steel – is double-locking, which means it securely locks assemblies from both sides, according to Alcoa. Designed for use with a variety of Huck air-actuated tooling, HuckLok blind rivets are designed to install precisely within seconds and require only a quick visual inspection to confirm accurate set.
