CARLO GAVAZZI has launched the new CD34 Series liquid level capacitive sensors. The CD34 Series is designed to detect water-based liquids through non-metallic walls, i.e. plastic or glass. The sensors automatically account for the thickness of plastic or glass walls and compensate for any residual films, moisture or foam accumulation while reliably sensing the presence of the liquid to be detected. The sensor is packed with a universal bracket, which provides great mounting versatility for a variety of surfaces, circular (e.g. sight glass, round containers) or flat.

CARLO GAVAZZI has unveiled two new single phase AC DIN-rail switch mode power supply families, in housings that are among the most compact available. These new additions to Carlo Gavazzi’s extensive lineup of power supplies include features and price points that are well-suited to a wide variety of markets and applications. The SPDM Series is a general purpose family with industry standard features in the most common output configurations. These smartly priced models are available in ranges from 30W up to 240W, in 12V and 24V outputs, and in housings that are up to 30% smaller than similar types on the market. The SPDC Series offers the highest level of features and performance, in slim metal housings. They feature efficiency levels above 90%, built-in Power Factor Correction, and can provide 150% power boost for up to 3 seconds, making them ideal for applications with high inrush currents. With built-in parallel function and an output ready relay, the SPDC Series helps ensure power is always available for critical functions. These advanced models are available in 120W, 240W, and 480W output versions.

CARLO GAVAZZI unveiled the new DUB72 Series, a double under voltage monitoring relay that is approved for use in Class I Division 2 hazardous locations. This relay can be used to help prevent brownouts in 24 VDC supplied systems in any kind of application, including hazardous environments. The DUB72 features two independent set levels and outputs, which allow the use of one as a pre-alarm and the second one as an alarm. With a high powered electromechanical 20 amp relay, the second threshold / relay can be used to directly disconnect a battery or load. Its low-profile DIN housing can fit into electrical distribution panels as well as into industrial cabinets.

Deck Strips from Sure-Foot


Please contact Anderson-Bolds HERE for a quote or technical help.

Sure-Foot Stair Treads and Deck Strips

Cleveland, Ohio (May 20, 2019) – Sure-Foot Industries, a leader in anti-slip products including tapes, aluminum/rubber stair treads, and fiberglass grit-coated step covers announced Deck Strips as the newest addition to their line of anti-slip products.
Deck strips are an innovative offering designed to cover individual wooden boards on decks, walkways, docks, piers and steps. Their versatility makes them perfect for both commercial and residential applications.
“We saw a need for our fiberglass products in the consumer market,” said Chris Kaskey, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Sure-Foot Industries. “Our products have always succeeded in commercial and industrial settings where we use our commercial heavy-duty grit blends, however those surfaces aren’t suitable for use at home.”   
Deck strips will bring Sure-Foot’s slip prevention products to the residential market. Typical applications include areas around deck steps, pools and other surfaces where moisture can increase risk of an accident. Less aggressive than commercial fiberglass products, deck strips have a proprietary grit blend that is suitable for outdoor leisure and barefoot traffic.   
The product is available in standard width sizes of 2″ or 4″ and up to 144 inches in length. Deck strips will also come in a variety of colors to meet homeowner’s needs including Brown, Gray, White, Tan, Yellow, Black and Pool Blue.   
“We wanted to come up with a product that was pleasant to look at but still provided a durable anti-slip surface,” said Kaskey. “It was important that deck strips had a pleasing aesthetic look for residential consumers because they offer a simple solution for slippery areas around the home.”   
Currently, deck strips are available online through Sure-Foot’s distributor Anderson-Bolds. 
Anti-Slip Deck Treads

Sure-Foot’s anti-slip fiberglass (FRP) deck strips provide ultimate slip resistance while delivering a durable permanent anti-slip solution.
Wooden decks, ramps, piers and steps are notorious for becoming slippery when wet. Constant moisture allows for the build-up of algae or mildew causing the surface to become even more hazardous. Fiberglass deck plates are the ideal lightweight solution which can be installed on any structurally sound structure to eliminate the slippery surface. Although originally designed for use on wood decks, these deck strips can be quickly and easily installed on virtually any surface such as aluminum, metal or concrete.
While it is always important to exercise caution to avoid slipping and falling, our grit-coated deck plates will provide an extra level of safety without damaging your surfaces or being too obtrusive. The tapered design of both the 2” and 4” profiles eliminates any trip hazards while providing an aesthetically appealing product.
We offer our FRP Deck Strips for both residential and commercial installations. Our proprietary grit blend used in the residential sector is suitable for barefoot traffic while we offer more aggressive grit textures which are ideal for industrial applications. All of our FRP Deck Plates are available in lengths up to 144”.
Meets and exceeds OSHA and ADA federal guidelines.

co-ax® valves for polyol applications

Anderson-Bolds sells co-ax® valves for polyol applications

co-ax® valves are made by


To get a quote for co-ax® valves, please use our Valve Parts Form HERE!

co-ax® valves are used to inject polyol, which then blends together with isocyanates to create a chemical compound called polyurethanes.
The mixture of the chemicals form molds for many different applications, which are used to create mattresses, foam insulation for refrigerators and freezers, home and automotive seats, elastomeric shoe soles, fibers (e.g. Spandex), and adhesives.
Isocyanates, when exposed to air, tend to form crystals that generate premature wear in valves, especially those containing abrasive fillers and they are equally destructive to the seals and seat.

Multiple co-ax® valves have been designed and sold for polyol applications. The fast actuation speeds of the co-ax® valve combined with high cycle life and virtually no maintenance are key advantages for this application.

Why are co-ax® valves the preferred choice?

  • Fast actuation
  • Engineered for long life (high cycle life)
  • Pressure balanced design

    EURO366 from Robertshaw

The EURO366 Vibraswitch malfunction detector provides maximum protection from rotating and reciprocating of large motors, pumps or compressors. It is intended for indoor or outdoor use in hazardous or non-hazardous areas with ATEX and CE certifications.

The Model EURO 366 VIBRASWITCHis primarily intended for indoor and outdoor hazardous and non- hazardous areas in those countries requiring ATEX and CE certifications. The EURO 366 employs the same time proven switch design found in Robertshaw's family of vibration switches.

The Model EURO 366 VIBRASWITCHis a vibration sensitive device that protects rotating and reciprocating machinery from extensive damage resulting from mechanical malfunction.When the vibration level of a VIBRASWITCH protected machine exceeds normal by a preselected amount, the normally open contacts of an internal switch close and the normally closed contacts open. This can be used to actuate either an audible warning system or a shutdown circuit before costly damage occurs

Failing bearings, broken blades and similar malfunctions cause increased imbalance or high frequency vibration detectable with the VIBRASWITCH. It is designed for maintenance-free service in permanent installations.

The VIBRASWITCHis an acceleration sensitive instrument that measures the total acceleratory shock present on the machine. Acceleration is a vibration characteristic of prime importance in cases of mechanical failure on reciprocating or rotating machinery. Acceleration is directly related to the shock forces (impact) acting on a machine - thus the VIBRASWITCHoffers a valid measurement of the destructive forces acting on the machine.

Accelerator measurements made by the VIBRASWITCHare the summation of all of the individual accelerations giving a total destructive force acting on the machine - the result is positive protection.
