Adhesives for filters with enhanced thermal stability

Filter manufacturers can now process their products with adhesives that are even more thermally stable – and save money at the same time. Henkel, the global leader in adhesives, sealants and surface treatments is presenting its innovative adhesives at the World Filtration Congress in Graz, Austria, from April 16 to 20.

High-performance adhesives are indispensable for the production of industrial filters. They fulfill important design functions such as the stabilization and end bonding of folded filter media or the joining of filter media to frame parts. The adhesives used must meet high quality standards, since they will be exposed in use to many different kinds of stresses, resulting from heat, pressure and chemicals. Add to that the demands on manufacturing efficiency: Filters are normally manufactured in large quantities, which requires fast cycling during adhesive dispensing as well as highly economical product usage.

Macroplast UK 1352

The new polyurethane adhesive Macroplast UK 1352 developed by Henkel offers multiple advantages here. A filter bonded with this adhesive can withstand continuous operating temperatures of up to 120 degrees Celsius, double the temperature resistance of the predecessor product. In addition, the innovative adhesives reaches handling strength at room temperature after only 15 minutes.

For filter manufacturers, Macroplast represents a viable alternative to traditional epoxy adhesives. The latter have to be processed hot, are therefore energy-intensive, and take about one hour to cure. Moreover, they also cost more to buy.

Adhesives for potable water filters

Further innovations for the filter sector are the two new Henkel developments Macroplast CR 3529 and Macroplast CR 8605, both of which have been approved for use in potable water filters. These adhesives also have double the temperature resistance of their predecessors – up to 80 degrees Celsius in continuous operation.

Low application amounts and strong bonding

The guiding principle for the adhesives developers at Henkel is always to aim for achieving the required bonding strength with the lowest possible product usage. The various types and uses of filter systems – from automotive and HVAC applications through to medical and water purification technology – make very different demands on the adhesives as well.

Customers will be able talk to Henkel experts at the World Filtration Congress, the global flagship event for the industry. Henkel will be exhibiting its new developments and other adhesives for the filter industry at Stand H12.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs.

The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs.

Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these power…
