The tools reduce time spent looking for buried shutoff valves, reduce wasted water and gas and enable crews to restore service quicker. The “M” manual tools develop a clamping force for an operator physically turning a handle on a long screw. The “H” hydraulic tools use a pump and cylinder for easier clamping. 800/666-3691; www.reedmfgco.com.
IMPCO Offers Brush-On Polymer Sealant
AlumiSeal brush-on methacrylate compound from IMPCO Inc. is made for sealing porosity in aluminum parts and welds that will contain liquids or gases under pressure. The sealant wicks into pores, seams and between close-fitting nonferrous metal surfaces. Once cured, excess surface material can be rinsed away with water. The sealant does not alter critical surface dimensions. The sealant comes in a 250-ml kit with a shelf life of six to 12 months. Mixing the sealant’s two compounds creates a VOC-free, low-viscosity, pale-blue liquid that can be applied by brush. Once mixed, the sealant has a pot life of one day. The cured seal can withstand continuous service temperatures of up to 356 degrees F and up to 150 psi. 800/779-2491; www.impco-inc.com.
