Honeywell Announces Miller Rigid Rail Fall Arrest Systems — for Mobility and Safety While Working At Heights On Vehicles, Elevated Machinery

Honeywell Announces Miller Rigid Rail Fall Arrest Systems — for Mobility and Safety While Working At Heights On Vehicles, Elevated Machinery

SMITHFIELD, RHODE ISLAND, USA — April 14, 2015 — Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced new Miller®Rigid Rail Fall Arrest Systems to provide workers with exceptional mobility and fall protection while working at heights on or above vehicles or elevated machinery.

Featuring an open track design, Miller Rigid Rail Systems are engineered to enable easy movement while reducing the risk of injury in elevated work environments on such applications as truck tarping, machinery maintenance, rail loading and unloading, and vehicle maintenance.

Three types of Miller Rigid Rail Fall Arrest Systems are available in various configurations and support center distances — making fall protection easily customizable and cost-effective:

  • The Inverted “L” System (single rigid rail) provides fall protection coverage for working at heights on vehicles or elevated machinery. The single foundation design is ideal where space for a foundation is limited.
  • The “T” Dual Track System (dual rigid rail) delivers dual fall protection coverage for working side-by-side on top of vehicles or elevated machinery. The single foundation design and parallel tracks make this system ideal for railroad tracks running parallel in close proximity — or two truck loading stations.
  • The “P” Series System (portable single rigid rail) is an economical solution for applications requiring temporary protection for working at heights. The modular design enables the system to be transported by forklift to a new location in just minutes.

The patented truss-integrated rigid rail on the Inverted “L” and “T” Dual Track systems allows for a single support column/foundation — for quicker and more flexible installation and reduced cost. Additional features include continuous lateral fall arrest protection along the full length of the system — which greatly reduces swing fall hazard. In addition, the system’s reduced fall clearance requirements, as compared to cable lifeline systems, enable workers to work on applications low to the ground. The systems may be self-installed — or installation services are available from Honeywell Technical Service by calling 800-873-5242.

These new Miller Rigid Rail Fall Arrest Systems are available immediately. For more information, visit http://hwll.co/rigid-rail, contact your nearest Miller/Honeywell distributor, or call Honeywell Customer Care in the US at 800-430-5490 or in Canada at 888-212-7233.

First Commons Bank Named as One of “America’s Healthiest Banks”

NEWTON, MASS. — April 8, 2015 First Commons Bank of Newton, Mass., was named as one of the 3 healthiest banks in Massachusetts, and one of the 13 healthiest in the Northeast U.S. by Sageworks, a financial information company.

Sageworks analyzed data from more than 6,500 banks across the U.S. and listed the healthiest for each region according to their “Texas Ratios” — a key performance indicator in the banking industry used to assess an individual bank’s health.  The ratio gauges a bank’s ability to cover its bad debts with its tangible equity capital.  The dataset used the most recent federal data via Sageworks Bank Information for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2014.  A low Texas Ratio is an indicator of a healthy bank

First Commons Bank had a ratio of exactly zero, reported Sageworks.

In a March 20th announcement, James Noe, an analyst at Sageworks, explained that “The institutions on each of these regional lists have taken on no or relatively low levels of problem loans and have adequate amounts of capital to cover them when there are any, which is a good indication of how these institutions are run.”

Tony Nuzzo, Chairman, President and CEO of First Commons Bank said he was pleased, but not surprised that First Commons Bank was rated among the healthiest banks in the U.S. “We are pleased to share this national recognition with our clients, employees, and shareholders,” he said.

AMECARE M2M Service Remotely Monitors SPECTRO ICP Spectrometers to Ensure Integrity, Avoid Downtime

SPECTRO_ARCOSKleve, Germany — March 24, 2015 — SPECTRO Analytical Instruments’ AMECARE M2M service offers the continuous remote monitoring of select SPECTRO ICP spectrometers to proactively ensure their integrity of operation and reduce the risk of downtime. The service is offered in combination with SPECTRO’s AMECARE Preventative Maintenance programs.

SPECTRO ICP spectrometers are equipped with intelligent diagnostic capabilities that report on the integrity of critical system components. With these capabilities, the cause of an instrument breakdown can be isolated and identified to speed system recovery. The technology also provides information for use with preventative intervention.

With the AMECARE M2M (Machine-to-Machine) service, diagnostic information is transmitted from the SPECTRO ICP spectrometer to SPECTRO’s central M2M server, where it is analyzed to proactively identify and flag any potential component maladjustment, degradation, or failure. If an issue is identified, the local SPECTRO service organization is alerted about the situation and the customer is contacted directly — ensuring that potential problems do not go unnoticed and are addressed proactively.

Components monitored by the M2M system include the Plasma Generator (torchbox and sample introduction system); Optical System; ICALization process; Instrument power supplies, readout and other electronic components. Benefits of the continuous monitoring include dramatically reducing the risk of instrument failure and the cost of the resulting downtime — as well as extending the life of the instrument.

User confidentially is ensured throughout the design and operation of the M2M system. The service transmits only instrument hardware and ICAL process relevant information — while analytical methods and analytical results are excluded. The system is unidirectional and secure — other than the communication handshake, information cannot be transmitted to the instrument from the remote M2M server — thus ensuring instrument encapsulation for maximum system integrity.

The AMECARE M2M intelligent diagnostic service is available on the following SPECTRO ICP spectrometers:

  • SPECTRO ARCOS FHE12 / FHS12
  • SPECTRO ARCOS 165 FHE16 / FHS16
  • SPECTRO ARCOS FHE22 / FHS22 / FHM22
  • SPECTRO ARCOS 160 FHE26 / FHS26
  • SPECTROBLUE FME16
  • SPECTROBLUE FMS16
  • SPECTROBLUE FME26
  • SPECTROBLUE FMS26
  • SPECTROBLUE FMT26
  • SPECTRO GENESIS FES17
  • SPECTRO GENESIS FEE17
  • SPECTRO MS MSS01

Brooks CSP8 Heat Sealer Processes Smaller Numbers of Tubes to Reduce Freeze-Thaw Cycles and Sample Degradation

CHELMSFORD, MASSACHUSETTS, USA, February 10, 2015 — Brooks Life Science Systems, the global leader in automated cold-chain sample management for drug discovery and biostorage applications and a division of Brooks Automation, Inc. (Nasdaq: BRKS), has introduced the CSP8 heat sealer for 96-well REMP tubes. The easy-to-use instrument permits the sealing of eight REMP tubes at a time, avoiding the need to seal an entire 96- tube rack.

The CSP8 uses Brooks’ industry-proven technology to produce tightly welded, pierceable seals. The REMP tubes’ small volumes allow for multiple aliquots of individual samples —  avoiding freeze-thaw cycles.

“The CSP8’s ability to economically seal small numbers of tubes, plus its capability to process individual aliquots, eliminates the multiple freeze-thaw cycles that lead to sample degradation,” said Christopher McNary, vice president and chief commercial officer, Brooks Life Science Systems. “Our instrument permits fast vein-to-freezer times in applications with distributed biosample collection and subsequent storage in central biobanks.”

The CSP8’s ability to seal a row of eight tubes also eliminates the cost and waste of sealing all of the tubes in a partially filled plate. In addition, the compact size of the instrument’s polyurethane seals maximizes storage density. The CSP8 heat sealer processes 0.3 ml and 0.9 ml, 96-well REMP tubes.

The CSP8 heat sealer is available for purchase from Brooks’s sales representatives. For more information, visit http://www.brooks.com/products/life-science-systems, e-mail blss.sales@brooks.com,  call 1-858-527-7000 or follow us on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.
