Central Boiler Introduces ThermoPEX Pipe System

        Central Boiler, which manufactures the Classic outdoor wood furnace, has introduced the new ThermoPEX insulating piping system. It is designed to maximize efficiency of the outdoor wood furnace by transferring more heat from the furnace to the building being heated.
        ThemoPEX is easy to install, which makes it appealing to homeowners who choose to install the furnace themselves.
        The PEX supply and return lines are centered in the insulation to maximize the amount of insulation surrounding them. The manufacturing process ensures an airtight, waterproof, urethane insulation enclosed in a thick, durable, flexible, protective waterproof jacket.
        The ThermoPEX insulated pipe system and a complete line of Classic outdoor wood furnaces and related parts and accessories are available at authorized Central Boiler dealerships across the country.

        Intercept Shrinkfilm is only available from FPM Inc. of Flat Rock, Mich. and its distributors.
        Bell Labs developed Intercept in order to protect its own systems. It has been used successfully for years to protect satellites and sensitive guidance systems, optical switches, art works, silver, rubber components, paper and guitar strings. Other applications include aviation, boats, equipment, and more.
        Intercept Shrinkfilm is recyclable, environmentally friendly and safe for all plastics and optics. It works in hot or cold, wet or dry conditions and is not affected by temperature or humidity

        A brief news item in the February issue of Pallet Enterprise about a new Rehrig Pacific Co. plastic pallet contained an error.
        The new RPX 4840 Export Pallet is designed as an inexpensive, one-way alternative to a wood pallet, primarily for one-way shipping.
        Since the pallet is made of plastic, it does not have to be heat-treated or fumigated, which is required of wood pallets and packaging to comply with international phytosanitary standards.
        The earlier article incorrectly indicated that heat-treating requirements applied to the pallet.
        For more information, visit the Rehrig Pacific Web site at www.rehrigpacific.com or call the company at (800) 546-4993.
