Patented Corrosion Prevention Coating Now Available On The Web

Van Nay has developed a major breakthrough in Corrosion Prevention with a product called ECK®. ECK® (Electrolysis, Corrosion, Kontrol) is the only patented product proven to prevent dissimilar metal corrosion. Some of the world's largest manufacturers use ECK® in their production process to prevent corrosion between aluminum & steel. To help protect your investments simply: brush, dip, spray or squeeze on ECK® during assembly.

South Elgin, IL (PRWEB) August 8, 2008 -- The corrosion coating that world class truck trailer and bus manufacturers have been applying to prevent corrosion is now available to the world. ECK® (Electrolysis, Corrosion, Kontrol) a patented corrosion coating was invented to prevent corrosion of dissimilar metals when applied to stainless steel hardware. "Our coating is used by some the largest fire truck, bus, ambulance and boat manufacturers in the United States, Mexico and Canada," said Richard Nay Sr., President of this 10-year-old company. "The magnesium chloride road ice chemicals that destroy trucks and trailers are now being prevented by our coating. Our patented product is applied by aerosol or brush preventing the natural corrosive reaction of dissimilar metals."

The United States Navy uses the product and two bridges were made in Pennsylvania also using ECK®. Is this the answer to the much publicized devastating bridge corrosion issue? "I can only tell you this, several years after the bridges were made, the inspectors concluded that ECK® prevented corrosion," said Nay.

Now those that need the corrosion prevention from electrolysis, galvanic and other forms of corrosion can obtain the coating product that has proven successful to leading industry manufacturers. "The world is full of dissimilar metal manufactured items, from vehicles to home swing sets, stainless hardware are used to assemble aluminum. Corrosion repair and replacement exceeds 350 dollars annually. Now a spray or a brush of our ECK® coating will help save money and extend the life of manufactured items."

Explosion Proof Paint Spray Booth Lights Round Out OSHA Compliant Lights for Magnalight.com

News Image

Larson electronics (Magnalight.com) is expanding their inventory of explosion proof lights to meet the needs of paint spray booth operators and others who are required to follow OSHA guidelines.

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 2, 2008 -- Explosion proof lights go by many names, including hazardous location lights (or hazlo lights), confined space lights, class lights or intrinsically safe lights. Regardless of the term used, these lights are made from non-sparking materials and put off nominal heat. Typically, these lights are made from heavy duty materials, including heavy gauge housings, aluminum brackets and extra thick lenses. The cords associated with these lights are typically SOOW rated and are resistant to chemicals, abrasives and water.

Finally, the plugs may be rated for explosion proof environments as well, although most operators will connect their lights to the power source outside the hazardous location area. Operators in the petrochemical industry, oilfields, manufacturing plants, ship yards, paint spray booths, grain storage areas and fuel tanks seek out explosion proof lights in order to meet OSHA specifications and protect their employees from potential explosions related to the ignition of flammable vapors and/or dust particles.

Magnalight.com recently added more items to its explosion proof lights range, including handheld fluorescent lights, surface mounted fluorescent lights for paint spray booths, handheld HID lights for inspecting tanks and vessels and explosion proof headlights for hands free operation. Combined with it's existing range of quad pod mount and cart mount explosion proof light fixtures, like the 23-7/8 diameter, 400 watt metal halide, tank cleaning cart light, Larson Electronics' online presence is rapidly becoming a one stop shop of the manufacturers, environmental companies, oilfield, paint spray booths and oil rig operators around the world.

World’s Most Portable Carbon Monoxide Detector Released by KWJ Engineering

KWJ Engineering introduces the third generation of its popular Pocket CO, the Model 300, a portable monitor to protect against the silent killer, Carbon Monoxide. This key fob sized carbon monoxide detector with digital readout weighs under one ounce, making it the most portable protection available from dangerous low and high levels of CO. Pocket CO is ideal for professionals and recreational users alike, including pilots, boaters, truckers, campers, building inspectors, firefighters and first responders. Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that sends tens of thousands to the emergency room and causes an untold number of fatalities each year.

Newark, CA (PRWEB) September 3, 2008 -- The latest generation portable carbon monoxide detector has just been released by KWJ Engineering. The new Pocket CO Model 300 is a key-fob sized carbon monoxide detector weighing less than one ounce. The nanotechnology-enabled instrument protects from low-level and high-level exposure to CO, and gives Time Weighted Average, Maximum, and Total Exposure readings. Carbon Monoxide, the silent killer, is a colorless, odorless toxic gas found in everyday environments that causes nearly 40,000 emergency room visits and an untold number of deaths every year. Many people assume they are protected by inexpensive wall-mounted detectors, which are often ineffective and do not protect against small but harmful concentrations of carbon monoxide.

"The small size and affordability of the Pocket CO finally gives consumers the ability to protect themselves from CO wherever they are," says company President Dr. Joseph Stetter. "It's easy enough for the average person to use, while delivering the accuracy and durability of an industrial strength monitor."

Pocket CO is already used worldwide by pilots, boaters, truckers, campers, divers (SCUBA) and many others for personal and family protection. Pocket CO is also ideal for commercial users including building inspectors, firefighters, police, and other first responders. Pocket CO runs on an easily replaceable ordinary watch battery, and provides durable, low maintenance, portable carbon monoxide detection.

KWJ Engineering has been an industry leading provider of cutting edge sensor and instrument solutions for gas detection needs since 1993. Founded by Ken Johnson, an industry pioneer for over 60 years, and headed by Dr. Joseph Stetter, a world recognized sensor expert, KWJ Engineering offers products that meet most any industrial or consumer application. The Pocket CO Model 300 is the third generation of this popular carbon monoxide detector, and bridges the gap between industrial users and every-day consumers.
