The Gold Standard in Guided Wave Radar

For over two decades, Magnetrol® has been producing technology at the forefront of guided wave radar (GWR) innovation. The Eclipse® Model 706 is a loop-powered, 24 VDC level transmitter that harnesses the smartest advancements in GWR to provide reliable, accurate measurement. The Model 706 offers superior accuracy and versatility, with probe configurations for every application. It is virtually unaffected by process conditions like density, dielectric and specific gravity. It requires no calibration and is simple to set up and use. And most importantly, the low signal-to-noise ratio of the Model 706 delivers excellent performance even in challenging high-pressure, high-temperature applications. Discover how the Eclipse® Model 706 can solve your toughest measurement challenges.

Versatic™ Acid 10

Versatic™ Acid 10, also known as neodecanoic acid, is a versatile, multi-purpose saturated carboxylic acid, used in a variety of applications due to its unique structure and properties. Versatic Acid 10 is used widely in metalworking fluids, and as a corrosion inhibitor in other aqueous recirculating systems, such as engine coolants/antifreeze. Versatic Acid 10 can be used in place of or in conjunction with dodecanedioic, sebacic or isononanoic acid in numerous applications.

Versatic Acid 10 is a multi-functional solution for many formulation challenges, particularly in long-life, low-foam metalworking fluids. Consult your Sea-Land Account Manager for support in taking advantage of the many useful attributes of this material in your formulations.
