The Doral Park Pavilion by Douglas Wood Associates, Coral Gables, Fla., won the WOW! Award for best overall entry in this year’s Decorative Concrete Council competition, recognizing vertical and horizontal applications. Located on the outskirts of Miami, the structure was designed by internationally-renowned artist Michelle Oka Doner, who envisioned a “feral” gateway to the adjacent Everglades.Read More
To fit within its expanding high-strength steel product line, the company has changed the branding of its namesake product to ChrōmX 9100 (Grade 100) and 9120 (Grade 120) rebar, both sold under the ASTM A1035 specification. ChrōmX 9000 bar provides high strength with ductility, as well as high corrosion resistance—five times more than standard carbon steel—outperforming epoxy-coated and galvanized rebar for corrosion protection, product engineers contend. They attribute the high performance features to the steel’s chemistry and unique microstructure; absent damage-prone coatings, ChrōmX 9100 and 9120 can be handled and fabricated just like conventional rebar.Read More
Available at three coverage levels, Guardian Series Support Agreements take what Fairbanks Scales officials describe as the guesswork out of weighing equipment maintenance costs. In contrast to open-ended service systems, where customers risk unanticipated repairs exceeding maintenance budgets, the company notes, the full-service Guardian program covers all inspections and repairs at a fixed price. As a result, maintenance costs are set and unknowns are removed from budgeting.Read More
Company has programmed user-friendly navigation and mobile device-ready formatting in the relaunched www.EastMfg.com. The new website provides quick and intuitive access to essential information on drop deck, dump, flatbed and refuse trailers. Each section presents detailed information including standard and optional features, by trailer type, for fleets and owner operators with demanding application needs.Read More
Superior Industries’ washing fines recovery system was granted patent protection from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Manufactured into the company’s Aggre-Dry Dewatering Washer, the technology reroutes minus 25-mm material fines from an onboard dewatering screen back to an integrated sand screw. Such fines are typically lost to waste ponds, but the recovery system processes them to saleable stockpiles.
The D3522 Attachment is reportedly the only hot epoxy pump on the market that can be powered by an existing hydraulic power source. Product engineers describe it as lighter, more versatile and affordable than hot epoxy pumps and mixer/pump combinations with built-in power supplies, especially since skid steers and other equipment with auxiliary hydraulic hookups can power the unit.Read More
The MP Series is a microwave, pulse radar used to determine bulk solid levels in silos or tanks. Deployed in some of the tallest silos, the MP70 model has a measuring distance up to 230 feet. Transmitting at a frequency of 26GHz with a narrow beam angle of 8 degrees, the MP Series radar is consistent and accurate in dusty environments—capable of ignoring loose particles in the air and focusing on actual material levels.Read More
The 212 All-Purpose Crystal Clear Sealant adheres to a variety of construction materials, including wet and marine surfaces, while providing a seal that remains flexible, even in low temperatures.
Concrete maturity can be determined by profiling temperature within the hardening. This benefits the project in both quality and speed of construction as adequate hydration can be determined and forms/shoring removed once target strength development is confirmed.
U.K. load monitoring technology specialist Straightpoint has engaged North American prospects as part of five-year growth strategy to expand its business this side of the Atlantic by 20 to 30 percent annually. The Straightpoint Inc. subsidiary has showcased force measurement, load monitoring and suspended weighing load cells at a series of trade shows and industry networking events, where participants especially noted the new version of the Radiolink Plus wireless tension load cell.
