FEBRUARY 2019 • E&MJ 67 EQUIPMENT GALLERY tons, depending on the unit. The hoists offer simple operation, low maintenance requirements, sound absorption and suitability for lube-free operation, the company reported. Industrial Oven for Sample Treating The Model No. 934 cabinet oven from Grieve is rated at 850°F (454°C) and can be used for on-site roasting test. The oven is 38 in. wide by 20 in. deep by 26 in. high. The 10-kilowatt Incoloy sheathed tubular elements generate heat, and a 600-ft 3 1/2-horsepower recirculating blower provides horizontal airfl ow. The oven has 6-in. insulated walls, an aluminized steel exterior and Type 430 stainless steel interior. Controls include a digital indicating temperature controller, 10-in.-diameter circular chart recorder, and SCR power controller. Rugged Computers for All Machine Applications Hexagon released the HxGN MineDiscover Core LP and Core HP rugged industrial com- puters. The low-precision and high-precision computers fea- ture an extremely robust design, tailormade for the most chal- lenging conditions, the compa- ny reported. They were designed to fl awlessly capture telemetry and production data and boost site effi ciency and productiv- ity. Both modules feature an Intel-based computing platform that improves performance and enables better machine application integration, the company re- ported. The units were designed to deliver unsurpassed fl exibility and scalabilty. Integrated connectivity options include dual Wi- Fi modules, cell modem and UHF radio. Core HP integrates a high-performance chassis sensor to improve machine tool accu- racy. The computers could become the standard offering for all machine applications, consolidating and simplifying all machine solutions offered by Hexagon Mining, the company reported. Mine Measurement Software Upgrade Released Maptek launched PointStudio 8, featuring a new platform and ribbon interface. The software is designed to provide the most fl exible and versatile mine measurement tools an operation can deploy, the company reported. It also offers tools for surveying, stockpile management, highwall mapping, geotechnical analysis, and stability and convergence monitoring. The new version is the logical progression from the I-Site Studio, the company report- ed. The new generation 3D platform for modeling, analysis and reporting is delivered on the Maptek Workbench, which unlocks data sharing with other Maptek applications. For example, the Workbench offers access to the Workfl ow Editor for building in- teractive command sequences. PointStudio users can link work- fl ow components to data and easily run automations in context, 360 ° activation of material up to 8-ft diameter Solve Tough Material Flow Problems • Eliminates ratholes, bridging and material buildup • Delivers on-demand product fl ow • Cleans interior surfaces Watch Demo Videos at ¨ MATERIAL ACTIVATION SYSTEMS AirSweep ® is a Division of Ideal for silos, vibratory conveyors, gravity chutes, dust collection systems and other bulk material processing equipment. • Cleans interior surfaces Cleans interior surfaces AirSweeps are quieter than air cannons, won't stress or damage vessel walls like vibrators, and are more effective than fl uidizers. • 860-928-6551 Contact us for a detailed AirSweep ® System proposal, engineered specifi cally for your application.
