Conditioning equipment

The Alcap system gets rid of the gravity disc and allows the nature of the incoming oil to vary without manual adjustment. The water transducer, installed in the Alcap`s clean oil outlet, measures the capacitive reactance of the clean oil leaving the separator and senses changes in the water content. The signal from the water transducer is transmitted to and interpreted by the control unit.

Westinghouse, Shanghai Electric forge joint venture agreement.

U.S.-based Westinghouse and Shanghai Electric Corp., a leading Chinese manufacturer, have signed a joint venture agreement, extending Shanghai`s licensing agreement for Westinghouse`s power generation technology. Shanghai Electric`s Turbine Generator Works holds 30 percent of China`s growing power generation market, which is expected to place more than 200 GW of new equipment orders in the next decade.

Torque wrench (301nps01-G)

The hydratight hydraulic torque wrench tools provide fast on-site cassette changes. The tool`s design reduces the number and sizes of the special fasteners holding the tools together. Three screws in two sizes are employed. The wrenches are manufactured in direct fit or square drive design and offer a range of impact sockets.


The 20-inch design EHT valve, 23,500 pounds, includes 7-inch thick, ANSI Class 1,500 raised face flanges. The valve controls the natural gas flow. The valve body and bonnet, made of low-carbon steel, received radiographic and magnetic particle testing.
