Two prominent themes in materials-handling auxiliaries at the recent NPE show in Chicago were both evident at the booth of Thoreson-McCosh Inc., Troy, Mich. One theme was the proliferation of simple and economical compressed-air dryers, and Thoreson showed off a new unit with a moisture-removal membrane and oil filter for the compressed air. It was sized for 6 to 10 lb/hr. The other theme was easy-to-use touchscreen controls with enhanced capabilities. Thoreson showed new Siemens touchscreen controls for its loaders. One controller can handle six or more pumps. It is said to make diagnostics easier-for example, alerting the operator when the pump needs servicing.
