Calbrite is the nation’s leading manufacturer of stainless steel conduit and conduit fittings for use in the construction of stainless steel electrical raceway systems. Calbrite manufacturers all of their products in accordance with the applicable UL®, cUL®, ANSI, ASTM, NEMA standards and for applicable sanitary applications Calbrite products are NSF certified. The benefits of stainless steel in electrical raceway systems are numerous, most noted is stainless steels resistance to corrosion. Stainless steel has similar physical strength to other steel raceway systems but the addition of chromium in stainless steel creates a chromium oxide layer that resists corrosion and increases the life span of the electrical raceway system. Beyond the extended life span that stainless steel allows installations subjected to the elements, e.g. roads, tunnels, bridges, etc.; stainless steel has also become the material of choice for sanitary applications, such as food and pharmaceutical processing. In these applications it critical to ensure that the raceway surfaces are not harboring or susceptible to bacterial attachment or biofilm formation. To maintain maximum hygiene, the processing plant utilizes a very strict protocol of harsh chemical wash downs. To help offset the effect of these harsh chemicals, Calbrite’s stainless steel conduit and conduit fittings provide the inherent corrosion resistant properties of stainless steel but the components are also manufactured with a “Brite” polished finish to eliminate any surface imperfection or crevices that may allow microbial bacteria to develop or grow So, if you are looking for quality, expertise, engineering, service, competitive pricing and the most comprehensive offering of stainless steel conduit and conduit fittings in the country, look no further than Calbrite.

Key industries served include industrial, railroad, commercial plumbing, and aerospace & defense. Over 95% of ThermOmegaTech®’s products are manufactured, calibrated, and tested in-house. R&D, prototype development, integrated solutions, and engineering support are managed on site as well. ThermOmegaTech® is ISO 9001:2015 certified and distributes its products worldwide. STVM Washdown Station ThermOmegaTech®’s STVM® Washdown Station delivers a high temperature wash at a user-defined temperature using a proprietary mixing valve to combine steam and water. Our Silent Venturi Mixing Valve (STVM®) design is self-scouring which minimizes mineral buildup and reduces maintenance frequency. Maintaining competitor washdown units is time consuming due to complex disassembly, special tooling requirements, and non-reusable components. Our washdown station utilizes a simple cartridge design which can be removed with a wrench and cleaned in a descaling solution before reassembly. The station is in-line serviceable, so the operator simply switches out the cartridge with a spare and the unit is back up and running in minutes, significantly reducing downtime. Because the station has only one moving part, it operates at around 20 decibels less than competitor mixing units, reducing operator stress and improving workplace conditions. Safety is our priority which is why the unit includes interlocking shut-off ball valves. This allows instant shut-off of both inlets and prevents accidental steam only operation. Our thermally actuated over- temperature shut off design will also reduce flow should the output temperature exceed the factory set point (150°F/185°F) and will completely shut down 15°F above that to protect personnel.

Country: United States
Cablevey Conveyors develops and builds state-of-the-art tubular drag cable and disc mechanical systems used to convey food and specialty ingredient materials. Based on its patented, gentle, cable and disc technology, Cablevey’s conveyors gently move materials such as coffee, nuts, snack foods, breakfast cereal, flakes, powders, pellets, shavings, crumbles, granules, fluff and dust with ease. By using no air to convey, friable materials are kept intact as intended, from inlet to discharge points. This gentle approach virtually eliminates the product separation and degradation that occur with traditional conveying systems such as bucket elevators, screw conveyors, pneumatic and aeromechanical systems. There are different methods offered to clean and sanitize a tubular drag cable and disc conveyor depending on what material is being conveyed. The materials reaction to water would indicate whether a wet or dry cleaning procedure would be more appropriate. Cablevey Conveyors offer both wet and dry conveyor cleaning options. Our tube conveyors are designed for food-grade applications seeking to eliminate places for fines to accumulate. This is why Cablevey Conveyors systems are top choice for conveying materials in the food processing, chemical, plastic, paper, wood, and waste-water and petrochemical industries. All systems utilize cable & disc technology and operate at convey speeds which average 100ft. (30.48 meter) per minute. 2000 Series 2 inch (50mm) diameter tube Conveys up to 75 cubic feet (2.12 cubic meters) per hour 4000 Series 4 inch (100mm) diameter tube Conveys up to 525 cubic feet (14.87 cubic meters) per hour 6000 Series 6 inch (150mm) diameter tube Conveys up to 1240 cubic feet (35 cubic meters) per hour Headquartered in Oskaloosa, Iowa, Cablevey Conveyor’s products are used in processing facilities throughout the United States and over 65 countries worldwide.
