Korea Automates Grease
A new automated grease injector from NCH Korea can be used in a range of industries that require large volumes of grease or small amounts of specialized lubricant. Controlled with a pump or piston, the units use transparent bellow grease cartridges to prevent air contact while allowing easy visual checks for grease levels. The NK-300AGC unit runs up to 6 months on four AAA batteries, and its polycarbonate body resists external shock better than metal units. The NK-CBGC unit runs on electricity. Both injectors can withstand sudden changes in temperature or vibration, the company says. NCH produces a dedicated grease to accompany the injector units. Web: www.nch.co.kr

Testing in a Flash
Flash point testing is used to classify potentially hazardous substances and to determine flammability for storage, transport and disposal charges, as well as labeling requirements. Changes in flash point can indicate that a sample may have been contaminated or adulterated. The new range of Setaflash Series 3 instruments make flash point testing available in-house, even to those with minimal experience, says maker Stanhope-Seta. The instruments are suitable for laboratory or portable tests, typically taking less than two minutes to perform using a 2 mL test sample. They hold up to 100,000 test results, which can be transferred to a computer by USB. Web: www.stanhope-seta.co.uk
