  • New 2 Litre Tank Pump for Boiler Condensate Pump Range

    Components Direct introduces a new addition to its Boiler Condensate Pump range – the VCMX-20 Series, 2 litre tank pump for the removal of condensate from condensing boilers, air conditioners and refrigeration.

    When a boiler is placed in a basement or a long distance from the drainage system gravity can’t take condensate water away from the home, this is when a condensate pump comes into action as it is cost-effective compared to having to install the necessary drainage pipework.

    When condensate water accumulates in the tank to approximately 42mm a float is raised automatically turning on the pump which drains away the water until it reaches a level of approximately 27.5mm. This intermittent operation ensures minimal energy usage to keep your costs as low as possible.

    A safety overflow switch activates when water in the tank rises to approximately 58.5mm, turning off the thermostat or turning on a high level alarm.

    The slimmer design of the VCMX-20 Series offers flexibility when installing in tight spaces and weighs approximately 1.9kg.

    The maximum flow rate is 284 LPH with the tank capacity being 1.9 litres.

    Supplied with four rubber feet to absorb vibration along with a wall mounting bracket and two twist lock check valves – 3/8 inch and 1/4 inch. Supplied with a two year warranty for peace of mind!

    The condensate water waste is acidic and can have an impact on most mortar and will react chemically to break down the bond within the mortar. Condensate must never be allowed to drain untreated down the sides of buildings either above or below ground level. If a suitable gravity drain point is not available, we supply soakaways to ensure the safe, easy and efficient disposal of condensate water waste from your property.

    Full installation instructions and an installation video are available to view on our website.

  • New Friction Guides from Accuride

    Accuride International has turned its engineering and design expertise to creating new linear friction guides for users of handling systems.

    Traditional linear slides use steelorpolymer ball bearings for smooth movement but friction guides use a plain bearing surface with no rolling elements. These linear slides do not have exposed moving parts which makes them ideal for harsh environments where dust, sand or any dirt particles could clog slides that use bearings. The installations are virtually maintenance-free; they have a dry movement and require no lubrication. The nature of the design and their resistance to corrosion also means that they can be high-pressure washed as they function in and around many types of liquids.

     

    These friction guides are lighter, easier to use compared to equivalent recirculating ball bearing slides and they are engineered to minimise stress and wear on the friction elements for a smooth durable operation. The low vibration and low noise operation further proves their quality.

    As customers have come to expect from Accuride , the new linear bearing guides include ease of use, superior performance and designed-in reliability.

    Thanks to its extra-tough anodised aluminium track and superior polymer guide the friction guide is hardwearing and long-lasting. This makes it an attractive alternative to over-engineered costlier solutions as its longevity adds to the low total cost of ownership.

    The new friction guide range consists of three variants; non-adjustable, manual adjust and auto-adjust all with contact surfaces engineered to produce uniform wear. The height, width and hole pitches all comply with ISO 12090-1:2011 and ISO 12090-2:2011 standards for compatibility with legacy installations.

    The guides move along a hard-anodised aluminium track which is available in two standard lengths of 1 metre and 2 metres. When seamlessly fitted together they permit any length of track to be designed and the bearing blocks can traverse freely along the whole extent of that track.

    Plain bearing guides and plain slides are ideally suited for many applications within machine tool, semi-conductor and materials handling markets.

    These new Friction Guides are supplied from stock in our Nottinghamshire warehouse for next working day delivery.
