A mobile app includes a collection of tools that makes it simple and convenient to find the right chain for new and existing drive or conveyor applications. Called Chain Engineer, the app allows engineers and maintenance professionals to select, interchange, configure and track elongation from their desk or mobile device. Features include: drive chain selection, conveyor chain selection and chain measurement. It also includes a resource library and allows users to create reports and download PDF files that can be easily shared. Chain Engineer is a mobile web app and can be downloaded to your phone and is also available as a web-based resource. www.timken.com
A 400°F (204°C) electrically heated shelf oven has workspace dimensions measuring 56 inches wide x 30 inches deep x 60 inches high. A 1,000-CFM, 1-HP blower provides side-to-side horizontal airflow to the workload, and 15 kW are installed for heat input. The oven features 6-inch insulated walls, integrally welded construction, channel shelf supports and nickel-plated wire shelves. Oven controls include a digital indicating temperature controller, manual reset excess temperature controller and separate heating-element control contactors. www.grievecorp.com

Airforge OH 40028 is a non-graphitic die lube formulated for aluminum forging. With more automotive suspension parts being forged from aluminum, there is a need for a modern, environmentally friendly forging lube. The lubricant is best used for aluminum forging applications up to 1200°F. Airforge OH 40028 displays superior material flow, optimal lubrication and excellent finish on forged parts. The dilution rate with water is 1:5 to 1:20. It can be used with all common spray systems. www.oelheld.com
Norton Winter AEON electroplated grinding wheels are designed for high-precision applications in the automotive, medical and aerospace markets. An innovative design and manufacturing process give AEON wheels the ability to hold an extremely tight profile tolerance of ±5µm at a maximum wheel diameter of 24 inches (600 mm), width of 12 inches (300 mm) and weight up to 551 pounds (250 kg). AEON grinding wheels have a single usable abrasive layer design, with diamond or cBN particles mechanically fixed onto the core surface by an electrochemical process of nickel deposition. This unique layer design provides high grit retention levels for long wheel life. To save costs, the wheel core can be reused. Once the abrasive grains are worn, the core of the wheel can be re-plated with new diamond or cBN grain in a continuous re-plating cycle. www.nortonabrasives.com
The new 1/4 NPT FullStream liquid atomizing spray nozzle provides a full cone spray pattern for pressurized liquids. They are applied to solve cooling, cleaning, washing, rinsing and dust-suppression applications for industry. Their tangential flow design is vaneless, which creates wide open internal features to resist clogging while producing a uniform distribution in a round pattern with medium to large droplets. Their right-angle design is compact and operates up to 100 PSIG liquid pressure. FullStream cone nozzles work well with liquids containing particulate. The liquid is supplied into the body of the nozzle, creating a swirling action within a vortex chamber. This vortex produces the spray pattern when the machined nozzle breaks the liquid surface tension as it exits the orifice and into a controlled spray angle. Stainless steel construction adds durability and corrosion resistance. FullStream nozzles are CE-compliant and available in a variety of flow rates. www.exair.com
