Metpar Powder Shield Partitions

Powder coated steel is popular for its economy and durability. The galvanneal steel provides strong adhesion for a durable smooth powder painted finish. This surface is three times more resistant to humidity and salt spray than solvent based painted finishes. It's easier to clean, and is available in many colors. System features emergency outside access to stall.

Construction features 1" thick doors and panels, 1-1/4" pilasters, constructed of two sheets of galvanneal steel, formed and cemented under pressure to a honeycomb core. All edges are finished with 20-gauge interlocking steel moldings. Corners are welded and finished with pre-formed stainless steel reinforcements. Doors feature steel reinforcements to secure hardware items, with "in-use" indicator latch. Rust inhibitive coated material is painted with multiple coats of epoxy-hybrid powder, applied electrostatically and baked until cured. Standard wall fittings are chrome-plated die-cast zamac.

Taco Introduces the 007e, the Successor to the 007

Taco Comfort Solutions has introduced the new 007e ECM high-efficiency circulator, offering the equivalent performance of the legendary 007 combined with high-efficiency ECM technology that uses up to 85% less electricity and requires no programming. The new 007e affirms Taco's commitment to ECM technology and their ongoing development of high-efficiency heating components.

The 007e also features the innovative BIO Barrier®, which protects the pump from contaminants, and the SureStart function, which automatically frees locked rotor conditions and self-purges air.

The 007e is ideally suited for hydronic systems zoned with circulators or zone valves. Additional features include dual electrical knock-outs, 6" stranded wire leads for easy wiring, Integral Flow Check (IFC®), and double insulation — no ground wire required. The nut-grabber feature on the flanges makes installation quick and easy. The optional two-way flange model provides universal fit to any flange position.

The 007e even alerts you to its status with convenient LED displays — orange for normal operation and white for SureStart mode. With Taco's new, 007e, hydronic installers can now enjoy high-efficiency ECM technology at a great value. Install it, forget it.

The Merlin 1000S Laboratory Utility Controller

The Merlin 1000S Laboratory Utility Controller from American Gas Safety is designed specifically for use in School and University Laboratories. This panel is to be used to carry out a gas proving test on the pipe work in order to highlight if there is a gas appliance open or a gas leak in the laboratory. The Merlin 1000S is designed to give the teacher full control over the incoming gas supply with the lockable key-switch operation. In built connectivity allows for connection to existing fire alarm and building management systems and with its easy to use system status panel and labeled PCB the Merlin 1000S is easy to install and easy to operate.

The Merlin 1000S can work in conjunction with carbon dioxide, natural gas, carbon monoxide and LPG sensors. The Merlin 1000S also has a built in “timeout” facility which will automatically shut off the gas solenoid valve at the end of a specific time period, this time period can be adjusted to 2, 5, 8 hours or can be overridden if required.

  • Can work in conjunction with a Merlin CO2 Monitor.
  • Protects people and property by testing for leaks before allowing the gas on.
  • Reliable method of pressure proving using the gas pressure transducer.
  • Key switch operation gives teacher full control.
  • Quick proving test, typically 30 seconds from switch on to ready for use.
  • Time out facility protects the building out of hours
  • Low pressure indication, continual monitoring of gas pressure.
  • Clear LED display for system indications.
  • Compatible with both BMS and fire alarm systems.
  • Straightforward to install and calibrate, the Merlin 1000S can be easily adjusted to the user’s requirements.
  • Covered by American Gas Safety LLC 3 year warranty.
