Crankcase fumes-disposal system for generator sets

The maker of the AIRSEP crankcase fumes-disposal system has packaged its systems for easy field installation on large generator sets.

The AIRSEP system processes engine crankcase fumes, coalesces the oil from the fumes back to liquid, and then returns the oil back to the engine crankcase. It also captures the fine oil mist that can often lead to radiator fouling, turbo or aftercooler fouling, or excessive emissions if left unchecked, the firm notes.

The kit uses specially designed side mount brackets that mirror the engines’ control panel brackets. This helps expedite installation and helps ensure a uniform package on engines.

New laser alignment tool

The new 2D Microgage laser alignment tool offers precision measuring, machine alignment, and calibration.

It combines a compact laser transmitter with a receiver and digital display. As the laser moves across the receiver in a vertical or horizontal direction the display provides a reading of the motion, accurate to 0.0001 in. It will operate over a distance of 100 ft with a bright red beam that is quickly adaptable to a number of applications. Several simple accessories allow for alignment of straightness, runout, parallelism, squareness, bore alignment, shaft alignment, and flatness measuring, the company says.

The two-axis tool operates on batteries for added convenience, and all components are machined of solid aluminum with a hard anodized coating for wear resistance. A sealed, pushbutton keypad and large LCD display help make the tool easy and convenient to use in demanding environments. A serial and USB interface connect to a laptop or PC and link to popular spreadsheets for plotting and analyzing data for maintenance records, customer compliance, and other uses.
