Ameren business customers have saved over $265 million and counting through their energy efficiency programs. The Mac pulse valve is just one way that facilities with dust collection systems can save huge amounts of money through drastically increased energy efficiency. 

Today, FPE Automation's Andy Button, Dan McCullough and Joey Bardos and Jason Welker are at the "Sweet Savings" 2016 Business Symposium demonstrating how it all works.

If you work in a facility that has a bag house and dust collection equipment and would like to learn more, contact us... or attend our Technology Showcase on June 30 in St. Louis.

News from LinkTech Quick Couplings



New to the LinkTech Catalog:
100AC Series

Ten Fluid Lines, One Multiple Port Connection

LinkTech has just introduced 100AC Series couplings that are offered in 1/16" flow capacity and are produced in a durable natural Acetal (POM) thermoplastic making them resistant to most mild chemicals. These couplings feature an intuitive slide latch that easily connects and disconnect up to ten fluid lines, with or without valves on the socket side. The new 100AC Series couplings can accommodate up to ten 1/16", 3mm or 1/8" flow size inserts to meet specific application needs. The 100AC Series couplings interconnect with the 100PP Series couplings as well as other similar industry multi-line slide-latch type couplings.

100AC Series features include:

  • ten fluid lines
  • distinct flow paths
  • durable natural Acetal (POM) thermoplastic
  • available in 20+ different styles
  • quick and easy multiple connection
  • multiple media in one assembly
