Offcially launched in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia, the birthplace of Warman pumps, Accumin lubrica- tors allow for quick and easy pump lubrication. Weir Minerals Australia lubrication product manager Russell Beaumont says, "Automatic lubricators aren't exactly new technology but Accumin lubricators are the only product on the market to have been specially designed for use with Warman pumps. "You simply bolt the lubricator onto your Warman pump, set the dosage and timer, and it does the rest. Accumin lubricators ensure that the required lubricant dosage is consistently ap- plied to key part of your pump. For a relatively small investment you are cutting down on main- tenance and increasing the life of your pump." Weir Minerals director of pumps Glen Priestley says, "We are constantly looking for ways to im- prove our pump performance and longevity, and Accumin is one extra tool to help our customers achieve best practice pumping. "What differentiates Accumin from other lubri- cators is the grease. Premium synthetic grease has always been specifed in the Warman pump manuals, and now it is available in an automatic lubricator." In addition to the unique grease, Accumin lubri- cators utilize latest design and technology. Weir Minerals slurry pump product manager Martin Naimo says, "The name Warman has been syn- onymous with advanced technology and dura- bility for centrifugal slurry pumps for more than 75 years. We have made sure that Accumin lu- bricators are produced with high-calibre design, materials and construction to match the quality of Warman pumps. Reliability is paramount on site, so we have done everything possible to make sure that Ac- cumin lubricators can stand up to any conditions thrown at them." Accumin lubricators are available in two sizes with two grease options also available to suit site specifcations. Accumin Premium is a synthetic-based grease as specifed for Warman pumps in the Warman pump manual. Weir says it provides superior lu- brication with loss volume of grease and is par- ticularly suited to the extreme conditions found on many mine sites. It is fully compatible with lith- ium-based greases, meaning it can be retroftted onto any Warman pump without any concerns about grease compatibility. Also available is Accumin Standard, which is a lithium-based grease that provides excellent ad- hesion and is highly resistant to water contami- nation, according to Weir. PROTECTO Products, a Southern California-based designer, manufac- turer and pioneer in the feld of refective clothing, has unveiled a series of refective hard hats for the utility, construction, mining, freight, cargo and other industries where headwear protection and visibility are critical to function and safety. Unlike traditional hard hats, Protecto's refective hard hats can be identifed by their unique silver strip patterns which provide high visibility for those at work in various industries where protective gear is a must. "Wearing a safety hat offers great protection in the workplace but it can be diffcult to clearly distinguish an individual in a low visibility environment," says Protecto's vice president of marketing Serge Laraque. "This is where refective, high visibility gear becomes so important. Refec- tive construction hard hats diminish the amount of head and bodily injuries and are a must in the commercial and industrial world today." Protecto asks employers if 'workers are protected from the top' because the company is fully cognizant of headwear visibility as well as its safety val- ue and role in preventing injury and saving lives. The company believes that a hard hat without refectivity has low visibility and endangers the person wearing it, especially on construction sites. New cutting edge 'hi-viz' styles are, therefore, always being developed. Protecto offers three styles of refective hard hats - the Americana, Liberty and Omega. Each is visible from side, back, front and top angles. Protecto also offers peel and stick refective silver strip kits to retroft existing hard hats regardless of style, model and size. They are mould- ed from high density polyethylene and are removable, yet provide con- sistent adherence to the hat's surface in any environment and climate. Abiding by its motto 'we make you visible', Protecto also offers refec- tive short sleeve t-shirts, armbands, and wristbands for pedestrians, runners, backpackers, cyclists and others requiring high visibility cloth- ing for low visibility environments. Protecto continues to devel- op fashionable refective cloth- ing products with protection and visibility as the main goal. In the coming months, they plan to unveil refective golf shirts and T-shirts with new and fashionable patterns. The Americana is one of three styles of refective hard hats offered by Protecto Products.
