New Crimping Machine

A new (rather expensive) crimping machine has been installed in the PurgElite® production area.

As part of the preparations for the launch of PurgElite® II coming up shortly, we have made the crimps shown in the attached pictures much stronger and more consistent than with the old crimping machine.

There is a small design change as well that has introduced a device under the front nose cone that provides a solid foundation for the crimp. The inflatable devices have been tested to maximum pressure and we are satisfied that the crimps hold tight 100%. Once the MK II PurgElite® systems start rolling off the production line, customers will see even better changes and results, particularly with respect to the crimped part.

In the pictures, it is possible to see the new 50% thicker polyurethane impregnated nylon cloth that is being used, again improving the PurgElite® systems significantly.
