Pax Bellum contacted us regarding their macro-algae bio-absorption filters for the aquaculture and the aquarium industry. The devices use a central light assembly consisting of a plurality of LEDs affixed to a water pipe or heat pipe. They were looking to replace the clear tube separating the LED array from the system water (currently polycarbonate.) After a few months in salt water and going through thermal cycling would cause crazing.
Recently one of our customers south of the border had difficulty moving cups through a complex space. We suggested eliminating multiple bends with snake and offset bends. The result was eliminating over 50% of their bends and really neatening up the floor space. Contact us for any pneumatic conveyance needs and we'll put our know-how to work.
Our Stratus line is used for LED lighting. Recently we received a request for a frosted tube. The link below gives Eastman's response, but for small extrusion runs we have a Per-Fix solution from Chem Pak. We have other methods, but the Per-Fix 6500 method is ideal for small lots. First, here is our Troll next to our un-illuminated Stratus 6" OD tube.
We still get lots of calls regarding threading of butyrate Pipe. It's one of several ways to connect butyrate to PVC couplings. The days are past when one could purchase butyrate fittings such as elbows and tees, but butyrate pipe can bed connected to metal pipe by means of compression fittings, slip fit and O-ring type plastic-metal adapters. But thread is still a viable way to go. Here we have a young John Busada working outside a 60's station wagon.
Busada has been making plastics tubing for over 6 decades, but one of our customers, Aerocom Systems, Inc. has over eighty years of design development in pneumatic tube systems worldwide. They recently designed the pneumatic props for a summer film, "Logan Lucky" and our tubing received a leading role. We were amused.
Busada Group 1 bends are carefully crafted to meet the requirements for clear, transparent, conveyance systems. For over 60 years we have developed propitiatory processes that assure roundness, clarity, and accuracy. Unless otherwise specified, bends are bent to a center-line radius with 8" standard tangents.
