PRODUCTSMeasurement Technology NW?s Running Line Tensiometers Measurement Technology NW?s RL10 VWD and RL20 VWD running line tensiometer product group provide a versatile solution for monitoring line tension speed and payout on multiple wire rope diameters. Suitable for aggressive offshore marine applications with anti-corrosive thermoplastic coated Alloy Steel frames, the fully hard- ened 4340 Alloy Steel sheaves with spherical roller bearings offer high line speed rating, increased wear re- sistance and service life. www. mtnw-usa.comCMR Smart Sensor Improves Engine Temperature Measurement The new Connect CAN digital smart sensor from electrical wiring control and instrumentation spe- cialists CMR Group provides reli- able and accurate temperature mea- surement for diesel and gas engines. Designed for unforgiving operating environments, the robust thermo- couple sensor features embedded in- dustry compliant J1939 technology, enabling real-time diagnostics and digitized connections to an engine ECU or other monitoring system operating un-der a control- ler network (CAN) bus. www.cmr- group.comVolvo Penta Quickline: Fast Delivery of Custom Engines Volvo Penta?s new Quickline custom production line is now running full steam, reducing lead times for com- mercial marine customers with short- fuse requirements for replacement engines. Quickline runs parallel to the regular production line at the plant, producing custom-built, clas- si ed and non-classi ed 300- to 750- hp D9MH, D13MH or D16MH propulsion engines within seven days of order, regardless of the make of en- gine the customer was using. Caterpillar Secures Complete Propulsion Order Cat power and propulsion solutions were selected to provide an opti- mized package for a 55T ASD tug. Two Cat 3512C EPA Tier 2 propul- sion engines will power the tug, with 2 MTA 523FP Azimuth thrusters. Each Cat 3512C marine propul- sion engine will provide 2x1765 kw @1800 rpm of rated power. Auxil- iary power will be delivered through 2 x Cat C9 engines. Norton Aluminum Oxide Fiber discs Norton / Saint Gobain Abrasives recently introduced a line of resin  ber discs ? Norton Neon F726. The line of Aluminum Oxide (AO)  ber discs offers a proprietary alu- minum oxide and organic grain blend, resulting in three times the normal AO cut rate, life and overall performance ? at an economical price. An improved resin bond sys- tem and heavy-duty  ber backing provide enhanced grain adhesion. Axial Fans: the Heart of Engineroom Ventilation Marine engines require a contin- uous supply of fresh air. With moisture elimi- nators, dampers and control sys- tems, Delta ?T? axial fans form an engineered ventilation package. Designed for the marine environ- ment, axial fans come with single and three-phase motors, in 50 and 60 Hz and in a range of voltages, to  t any application for worldwide use. I-EEE-45 certi cation is also an available option. July 201456 MNMN July14 Layout 50-59.indd 56MN July14 Layout 50-59.indd 566/18/2014 3:54:40 PM6/18/2014 3:54:40 PM
