New Road Products
Vactor Manufacturing now offers the SXP (superlinear XL polyethylene) insulated water tank for the Vactor HXX HydroExcavator. According to the manufacturer, the thermal water tank retains heated water temperature longer, reducing the likelihood of freezing during operation in sub-zero conditions and harsh winter weather. The lighter-weight tank also reduces fuel consumption while increasing payload availability and hauling capacity. The 1,200-gallon-capacity SXP tank features a double wall design consisting of a 3/8-inch-thick outer shell and a 3/8-inch-thick foam liner.
Resin system warns of hazardous turns
Transpo Industries has introduced the T-28 Color-Safe Surface and T-78 Polymer Crack Sealer. The T-28 is an acrylic-based resin system used for pavement area markings and anti-skid surfacing. It is typically used for demarcation of bicycle/pedestrian paths, bus stops/lanes and other specially-designated areas. T-28 Color-Safe Surface enhances skid-resistance, and its color warns travelers of hazardous turns and other high-accident areas on asphalt and concrete roadways. T-78 is a low-viscosity, methyl methacrylate resin system that is highly effective for sealing and filling cracks in concrete. It bonds well to the inner walls of cracks, restoring strength and preventing crack propagation. T-78 Polymer Crack Sealer is capable of rapid cure in a wide range of temperatures. The application process requires minimal labor costs, reducing the need for specialized equipment. Its fast cure time (less than one hour) assures a quick return to service, according to Transpo Industries.
Double-walled fuel tanks
Transcube has added the 100TCG to its line of transportable fuel tanks. The new double-walled tank offers a special total containment design to eliminate the risk of spills and contamination. Providing a capacity of 2,450 gallons, the 100TCG is useful for feeding large portable generators and many other applications that require a larger supply of diesel. The tank is designed with an inner fuel container enclosed within a steel-constructed, weatherproof outer wall that ensures complete integral secondary containment. All fill ports, pumps, fittings and connections are housed within a full height cabinet. The cabinet, which includes a drip collection sump, is completely within the tank’s secondary containment area. The unit includes a PN16 flange for double-walled pipework requirements and is capable of feeding up to two generators while simultaneously fueling equipment with a separate nozzle.
