Page 88 of 95 JuLY 2014 • 87 Truss arch structures Gable style, Hercules truss arch buildings suit raw or finished materials storage and trans- fer, plus precast concrete curing enclosures. Shown here are recently completed twin structures at the Brookhaven Rail Terminal in Yaphank, N.Y. At 100- x 300-ft., they are connected by three breezeways and mounted on slabs on grade. The buildings are stamped engineered and built to Suffolk County code to meet 20 lb./sq. ft. snow load and 120 mph wind loads. The cover is a UV-resistant, 12.5-oz. rip-stop polyethylene material. The buildings act as a primary distribution center for Long Island, N.Y., Home Depot stores, product transferred from rail car to tractor-trailers. They feature a total of seven overhead doors, including a pair of 16-ft. wide, 18-ft. high openings for rail cars. — Clear Span, Windsor, Conn., 866/643.1010; INNOVATIONS EQUIPMENT & PRODUCTS Bindicator, Kistler-Morse add wireless radio capability to level sensors InvisiLink Wireless Radio has joined the Bindicator and Kistler-Morse product offerings, allowing users to eliminate hard wiring and conduit between units, while netting equip- ment installation and maintenance cost savings. The InvisiLink wireless radios communicate via RS-485 or RS-422, making them compatible with a) Bindi- cator Yo-Yo continuous level sensor, 3D Level Scanner and ORB remote inventory management systems; or, b) Kis- tler-Morse controller, and ORB remote inventory manage- ment systems. Additional compatibility with 4-20mA analog devices can be achieved when used in conjunction with the Bindicator or Kistler-Morse 4-20mA converters. This allows for the consolidation of multiple analog signals from level sensors across a bank of vessels into one digital signal that can be brought back to the plant wirelessly. InvisiLink wireless radios have a standard transmis- sion distance of 3,000 feet and extended range antenna option for longer distances. Environmental conditions need to be considered for optimal transmission. Other features include a NEMA 4 enclosures and LED indicator lights that designate communication and signal strength. — Bindicator,; Kistler-Morse, SILI SPRAY The REVOLUTION in NON-HAZARDOUS CONCRETE REMOVAL All-SAFE XTREME CLEAN 100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEED OR YOUR MONEY BACK! 1-800-638-7361 CONTACT US today for a 30-DAY TRIAL or to SCHEDULE a DEMONSTRATION STEP I • Multi-mode concrete remover: instant or time-release action • Safe on paint, aluminum, steel, rubber, plywood and fberglass • Non-hazardous to ship and use • Environmentally friendly STEP II • Great for cleaning and degreasing all your equipment • Removes concrete and road flm • Neutralizes traditional acid-based concrete removers STEP III • Non-stick coating that prevents concrete from sticking for 24 hours • Eliminates the need to use harsh concrete removers • Shines and protects paint • Saves time and money CONTACT US today for a 30-DAY TRIAL or to SCHEDULE a DEMONSTRATION Corrosion Technologies, the worldwide leader in innovative corrosion prevention and control products, has brought its scientifc know-how to the concrete industry.
