KWJ Engineering introduces the third generation of its popular Pocket CO, the Model 300, a portable monitor to protect against the silent killer, Carbon Monoxide. This key fob sized carbon monoxide detector with digital readout weighs under one ounce, making it the most portable protection available from dangerous low and high levels of CO. Pocket CO is ideal for professionals and recreational users alike, including pilots, boaters, truckers, campers, building inspectors, firefighters and first responders. Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that sends tens of thousands to the emergency room and causes an untold number of fatalities each year.
Newark, CA (PRWEB) September 3, 2008 -- The latest generation portable carbon monoxide detector has just been released by KWJ Engineering. The new Pocket CO Model 300 is a key-fob sized carbon monoxide detector weighing less than one ounce. The nanotechnology-enabled instrument protects from low-level and high-level exposure to CO, and gives Time Weighted Average, Maximum, and Total Exposure readings. Carbon Monoxide, the silent killer, is a colorless, odorless toxic gas found in everyday environments that causes nearly 40,000 emergency room visits and an untold number of deaths every year. Many people assume they are protected by inexpensive wall-mounted detectors, which are often ineffective and do not protect against small but harmful concentrations of carbon monoxide.
"The small size and affordability of the Pocket CO finally gives consumers the ability to protect themselves from CO wherever they are," says company President Dr. Joseph Stetter. "It's easy enough for the average person to use, while delivering the accuracy and durability of an industrial strength monitor."
Pocket CO is already used worldwide by pilots, boaters, truckers, campers, divers (SCUBA) and many others for personal and family protection. Pocket CO is also ideal for commercial users including building inspectors, firefighters, police, and other first responders. Pocket CO runs on an easily replaceable ordinary watch battery, and provides durable, low maintenance, portable carbon monoxide detection. KWJ Engineering has been an industry leading provider of cutting edge sensor and instrument solutions for gas detection needs since 1993. Founded by Ken Johnson, an industry pioneer for over 60 years, and headed by Dr. Joseph Stetter, a world recognized sensor expert, KWJ Engineering offers products that meet most any industrial or consumer application. The Pocket CO Model 300 is the third generation of this popular carbon monoxide detector, and bridges the gap between industrial users and every-day consumers.

Larson electronics (Magnalight.com) is expanding their inventory of explosion proof lights to meet the needs of paint spray booth operators and others who are required to follow OSHA guidelines.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 2, 2008 -- Explosion proof lights go by many names, including hazardous location lights (or hazlo lights), confined space lights, class lights or intrinsically safe lights. Regardless of the term used, these lights are made from non-sparking materials and put off nominal heat. Typically, these lights are made from heavy duty materials, including heavy gauge housings, aluminum brackets and extra thick lenses. The cords associated with these lights are typically SOOW rated and are resistant to chemicals, abrasives and water.
Finally, the plugs may be rated for explosion proof environments as well, although most operators will connect their lights to the power source outside the hazardous location area. Operators in the petrochemical industry, oilfields, manufacturing plants, ship yards, paint spray booths, grain storage areas and fuel tanks seek out explosion proof lights in order to meet OSHA specifications and protect their employees from potential explosions related to the ignition of flammable vapors and/or dust particles.
Magnalight.com recently added more items to its explosion proof lights range, including handheld fluorescent lights, surface mounted fluorescent lights for paint spray booths, handheld HID lights for inspecting tanks and vessels and explosion proof headlights for hands free operation. Combined with it's existing range of quad pod mount and cart mount explosion proof light fixtures, like the 23-7/8 diameter, 400 watt metal halide, tank cleaning cart light, Larson Electronics' online presence is rapidly becoming a one stop shop of the manufacturers, environmental companies, oilfield, paint spray booths and oil rig operators around the world.
Consuming E85, a fuel made from natural biomass, does not contribute to greenhouse gas accumulations because the carbon from the natural biomass would have been released naturally into the earth's atmosphere when the biomass decomposed naturally.
If the carbon released during feedstock farming and the subsequent production of ethanol is taken into account, ethanol derived from corn and combined with gasoline in an E85 fuel blend still contributes about 25% less CO2 into the earth's atmosphere compared with gasoline.What Ford vehicles can use E85?
We now offer four flex fuel vehicles — Ford Crown Victoria, Mercury Grand Marquis, Lincoln Town Car and, for the first time, the best-selling Ford F-150. Find out if your vehicle can use E85.Can you drive as far on a gallon of E85 as you can on a gallon of gas? If not, why would customers choose E85 fuel?
It is true that there is less energy in a gallon of ethanol than in a gallon of gas. But ethanol is often less expensive than gasoline — currently E85 costs 20-30 cents less per gallon than gasoline.
