Vanair to debut new integrated separator tank at ICUEE
The new separator tank design features integrated manifolds containing a minimum pressure valve, thermo-valve, thermistors, transducers, pressure regulators, oil filter, ultrasonic oil level sensors, and optional cold-weather oil heater. It also features SAE O-Ring and JIC connections, virtually eliminating leak points associated with conventional galvanized pipe fitting designs. The Integrated Separator Tank is shipped fully assembled and ready for final mounting, which reduces installation time by approximately two hours. The result of these innovations is an impressive 60 percent plus reduction in leak points compared to competitive tank designs.
Another Vanair first is a new optional redundancy provision feature for thermistors and transducers. "Just like a sophisticated aircraft, this option provides backup if a fault exists on the primary transducer and thermistor," says Ralph Kokot, CEO of Vanair. "It virtually eliminates potential downtime due to failed primary transducers and thermistors, allowing for uninterrupted operation."
A cold-weather oil heater is an additional option Vanair offers on the Integrated Separator Tank. This feature preheats the compressor oil using engine coolant while driving to the jobsite. The benefits include increased oil flow in frigid temperatures while reducing emulsification in system.
The new Integrated Separator Tank will also feature a redesigned coalescing element with 50 percent greater surface media, doubling the design life up to 6,000-hours. "The life of the coalescer will typically last beyond the vehicle life cycle, meaning most customers will never have to change the element which equates to substantial cost savings over competitive designs," says Kokot.

The display also showcases critical operating information and "trip" details. All-new electro-hydraulic controls, managed through the display, make it easier than ever for operators to dial CASE CTLs into specific application demands. All new cab controls and joysticks make the new TR340B easy to own and operate.
Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
