New support clamps for machine guard panels and wire mesh

Support clamps from Elesa UK for machine guard panels and wire mesh
Our new PPR series of support clamps provide a quick and robust mounting method for plain panels or wire mesh as an aid to ensuring compliance with machine safety requirements such as ISO 13857 para 4.2.4. They are also suitable for architectural panels and similar, e.g. for stair panels, partitions, balconies etc.

PPR clamps suit standard 1″ square tube without drilling and come with, or without, internal vibration damping rubber grip pads for plain panels, or with locking teeth to suit electro-welded mesh type TEC® (max. wire dia. 3mm).

Construction is in tough glass reinforced polyamide with flush mounted M5 AISI 304 stainless steel fittings.


New HVF in line visual flow indicators

HVF in line visual flow indicators from Elesa UK
These new HVF in line visual flow indicators compliment our  well-known range of hydraulic accessories. They are a simple, cost-effective means of checking correct operation of many fluid systems and so protecting associated equipment from the consequences of flow stoppages.

The HVF may be mounted in any position, where it offers a 360° view. This simple, cost-effective and maintenance free unit operates with flow in either direction, while its unusual axial impeller design ensures minimal pressure loss in use.

Operation at up to 100°C working temperature and application with a wide range of liquids – including glycol based solutions, is ensured by its rugged construction in Pyrex and polypropylene.

AISI 316 stainless steel bosses, NPT conical threads and blue rotor options are available on request.


New Circular Toothed Clamping Plates

Circular toothed clamping plates from Elesa UK
Our new range of circular toothed clamping plates enable quick, accurate and robust positioning of equipment which may be fixed permanently or then quickly changed if required and indexed for dis-assembly and re-assembly. They provide adjustment in 6° increments for correct angular alignment of instruments, frames, lighting units, disability equipment and similar.

This toothed clamping range includes the RDB series in glass reinforced polyamide, the GN187.4 series in black oxide steel or plain steel – also the GN187.4-N1 series in AISI 316 LHC stainless steel.

All feature a two bolt base mounting with central locking to suit studs or machine screws – with an internal push spring which aids adjustment by separating the two parts so as to facilitate rotation as required.


VCT-LP series retained lobe knobs

VCT-LP series retained lobe knobs from Elesa for clamping components, workpieces, frames and disability equipment

“Where did I put that knob?” – well we have the answer – by putting a chain on our VCT-LP lobe knobs we have ensured that these vital clamping components need never be lost in the course of adjustment or disassembly/assembly.

The VCT range of male/female lobe knobs are a proven effective means of clamping components, workpieces, frames, disability equipment etc. with quick manual operation. Now the LP version of this series incorporates a simple modification with fitting of a retaining chain.

As with the rest of the VCT range the VCT-LP features an easy to use 5 lobe design in high resilience black polypropylene now fitted with a free spinning retaining fork and chain. The chain is easily fitted to the equipment with a 4.8mm self-tapping screw or similar.

Lobe knobs in the VCT-LP series are available in 25mm to 63mm dia. sizes and M5 to M12 thread sizes.

GFL lobe nut for equipment adjustment

Elesa GFL lobe nut for equipment adjustment
Our new GFL lobe nut enables adjustment of equipment mounted on threaded stems and may be used singly to lock against another threaded component or in pairs to lock a tubular bracket in place.

The GFL locks brackets etc. in a specific position while enabling quick toolless re-adjustment – it is carefully designed for a comfortable hand grip and manufactured in glass fibre reinforced polyamide with brass threaded boss, which also ensures smooth operation on studs in a variety of materials. Thread sizes of M8 and M10 are available in a seven lobe moulding of 40mm diameter.


Direct Drive IP65/7 Electronic Position Indicator for 20mm shafts

Elesa Direct Drive IP65/7 Electronic Position Indicator for 20mm shafts

Our new DD52R-E  fits larger 20mm dia. shafts while offering IP65 or IP67 sealing for arduous environments on industrial equipment of all kinds where high accuracy measurement of shaft position is required. This enables machine setting, counting or position monitoring to be achieved while providing an excellent easy to read six digit display that is legible in any position, with an 8 year battery life.

The flexibility of electronic menu setup allows the DD52R-E to be customised for orientation, absolute or incremental read-out, in metric or imperial – or for angular display in degrees, while of course being re-programmable at any time to suit a new application or new process.

The high degree of dust and water protection at IP65 or IP67 means that the unit is suitable for applications that require frequent wash-down, even with high power water jets, e.g. in food, pharmaceutical or similar environments.

Stainless steel 3 lobe clamping knobs

Stainless steel 3 lobe clamping knobs from Elesa
Our new  VMT-SST three lobe clamping knobs in stainless steel offer strength and ease of operation – even with bulky work gloves. Their rugged design presents a smooth external appearance with no recesses or voids. This prevents unhealthy residues from collecting and ensures quick easy cleaning on machines and equipment where parts must be frequently washed using water jets or steam.

VMT lobe knobs are available in AISI 303 and 316L for excellent corrosion resistance, weathering and strength. Sizes are from 40mm dia. to 60mm dia. with M6 to M12 internal threads, matt finish is standard, polished finish is available.

New recessed pull handle with integral latch/lock

Recessed pull handle with integral latch/lock from Elesa UK

Our new GN 115.10 recessed pull handle allows 2-in-1 fitment of pull handle and latch in a robust zinc-die package with integral lock. This greatly simplifies installation where previously 2 separate items would be required – thus time and cost may be saved with a single Elesa item.

The GN 115.10 may be fitted to panels of up 7mm thickness and comes supplied with triangular, square or two-wing key locks or with cylinder lock/key mechanism oriented to the left or right of the handle insert. Finish is either black or grey epoxy – overall size is 128x83mm.

New TMB series magnetic plugs

TMB series magnetic plugs from Elesa UK

Our new range of magnetic plugs collect ferrous/magnetic particles inside machinery such as gearboxes, engines, pumps and so on which are subject to wear. Once collected about the magnetic core of the plug these particles are separated from lubricating/hydraulic oil and are thus not able to cause further wear or damage.

TMB series sump plugs feature a powerful AlNiCo (aluminium-nickel-cobalt) magnet to attract these particles and keep them out of circulation where they may then be removed at the next oil change.

TMB plugs are capable of sustaining high tightening torque and may be used even in pressurised reservoirs. They are available in M14 to M42 sizes – also imperial ¼ to 1 ½ in. Operating temperatures with NBR sealing ring are -20° to +100° – and with FKM sealing then from -20° to +180°.

new LV.FO series high stability equipment mounting feet

New LV.FO series high stability equipment mounting feet from Elesa UK
Our new LV series of high stability mounting feet features an asymmetric foot design incorporating screw-down pads for positive positioning (with one or two screws) and much enhanced structural integrity for applications such as conveyors and other vibration prone equipment. Moulded feet in reinforced polyamide technopolymer incorporate a non-slip pad which also takes up slight surface unevenness.

Reference LV.FO in zinc plated steel is complimented by a LVQ.FO-SST version in AISI 304 stainless steel. Conventional hex nut adjustment is available in M8 to M16 size with foot diameters from 60 to 80mm with Elesa’s reduced stem design available where cost is a major consideration.
