PRODUCTS E-Sea-Lock Marine Services announced the latest E-Sea-Lock marine product designed for keyless locks and ignition switches. The E-Sea-Lock technology has no outside holes or access points for mechanical keys or wires, making it immune from picking or tampering. Backed by the Knock Code technology that transfers data through solid materials (metal, wood, fiberglass, plastic, glass etc.) by a series of discrete mechanical knocks, E-Sea-Lock products are the most secure and safest marine lock system available today the and cannot be compromised.

When cool blood reaches the heart, it can cause fatal cardiac arrest. The unique integrated lifting becket found on the Viking PS4173 ensures a stable, lifeprotecting horizontal position when lifting survivors from the water. The cuttingedge combination helicopter and immersion suit features an incorporated lifejacket that eliminates the need to change from one suit to another. This 2-in-1 helicopter transportation suit easily transforms into an immersion suit. By simply screwing the bobbin of the inflation mechanism into the automatic inflation system, it becomes a self-turning immersion suit.

The Marine Selector Valve permits continuous engine function during tank switching, from the safety and convenience of the boat's control panel. The two-way, normally closed valves, rated for fuel safety shut off, features integral solenoids and a manual override in a one-piece construction. Applications for this valve include marine engines, generator sets and cross-over piping arrangements, as well as fuel balancing. The Marine Selector Valve is manufactured with six ports for fuel return in diesel tanks and three ports for gasoline, and comes with a two-year warranty. Available in aluminum, the new valve has a flow capacity of 180 GPH and fuel line connections of 0.5-in. female NPT.

The coupling is designed to provide unprecedented fire security, and is designed to fit on square cut plain end pipes. In addition, the system requires no special pipe preparation, and it is designed to fit on new installations as well as retrofits. For more information email email@example.com Leslie Controls Explosion-Proof Wet Vac Abanaki's new explosion-proof wet vac, the Q-VAC 100X, vacuums up liquids in environments that require explosion proof equipment. The QVAC 100X wet vac is designed to eliminate the possibility of static electricity build up and discharge which could spark an explosion. The entire unit - from the floor tool to the hooded Venturi - is grounded, allowing the unit to shed any static electricity to a ground via a spring-loaded alligator clamp (attached by the user to a reliable ground). The Q-VAC 100X, which has no electrical parts, is the only explosion-proof wet vac on the market that is air driven. For more information www.abanaki.com/032 Combination Transport Suit Leslie Controls produces a complete line of shipboard control products including pneumatic and electric operated control valves, temperature regulators, pressure reducing valves, butterfly valves, ball valves, electropneumatic controllers, strainers, stop valves, relief valves, steam water heaters, air and electric whistles, and electrical and pneumatic instruments. Products for the marine industry include: Aeroflow Control Valves, Steam Water Heaters, Temperature Regulators, PMC-1, Three-Way Rotary Valves, Laurence Electrically Actuated Valves, and KMax Rotary Control Valves.

In order to make the decision for shipowners easier, Kral is offering two booster module pumps with magnetic couplings for a defined test period. The test is free on request and Kral can also assist in installation and start-up. At the end of the trial period Kral will hold a project conclusion discussion to review. This program puts the emphasis on long term safety. Mechanical seals on booster module pumps in the engine room are subject to constant wear and tear when used properly. There is always a risk of a fuel leakage. Given the high preheating temperatures of over 302 °F, the heavy oil can catch fire. This risk is noticeably reduced by Kral pumps with magnetic couplings. Kral developed magnetic coupled pumps many years ago as an alternative to pumps with mechanical seals. Kral magnetic coupled pumps are hermetically sealed almost eliminating fuel leakage and the potential for fire.

With numerous features, the Viking PS4173 is the only suit on the market that protects against suspension induced shock syndrome.
