Rubber Goods Cleaning Supplies
The Formula 515 cleaner is an excellent cleaning agent, rinses thoroughly and does not leave a residue on the rubber. The Formula 516 coating beads remove surface tension and eliminate static electricity from the rubber which aides in a quieter electrical test and keeps the rubber goods from sticking together and eliminates the need for talc.
We do not recommend the use of consumer laundry products (i.e. Tide, All, Ivory Snow, etc.) for cleaning insulated rubber protective equipment.
All consumer laundry detergents are designed to clean with abrasive surfactants. Fabrics are cleaned by gently being scrubbed with the abrasive surfactant to remove dirt and stains from the fiber. They do this well, but as a result of this scrubbing action lint is produced, which is fiber torn form fabric. The same action takes place on the surface of natural rubber goods.
Rubber gloves are treated by the manufacturers with a chlorinated process which seals the pores of the natural rubber and results in sleek, shiny finishes.
By using a powdered laundry detergent, this seal is gradually, abrasively scrubbed off which opens the pores in the natural rubber and creates a tacky or sticky feeling on the surface of the rubber.
This same action will take place in the field due to rubbing the exposed areas of the gauntlet as well as by the protectors themselves, which will abrade the rubber by moving against it while working.
Premature degradation in the lab can be eliminated by using a liquid rubber cleaner which is designed and formulated to clean by dissolving dirt instead of scrubbing it from surfaces.
Damage created in the field, which is a normal result of usage, can be repaired in the lab by using silicon beads which dissolve in the final rinse cycle of the wash and re-seal any open pores in the natural rubber. The result is that the equipment maintains a sleek and shiny surface as well as enjoying an extended product life cycle.
We offer both products to assist you in these matters.
- Box of (4) one gallon jugs (40 lbs.)
- Five gallon pails (47 lbs.)
- 55 gallon drums (540 lbs.)

We will design, program and service custom drive systems to meet your application requirements.
An Engineered Control System will:
A machine or process is only as efficient as the control system that drives it… A new control system can bring new life to an old machine. A machine can be sound mechanically, but an old control system can cause unnecessary downtime. A control system upgrade may be all that is necessary for efficient, reliable operation… possibly at a fraction of the cost of a new machine.
Hanco Engineered Control System Features:
Hanco provides layout drawings, schematics and instruction manuals with all engineered control systems. Hanco can also provide startup and training for personnel in the safety, maintenance, and operation of the control system.

A Brief History
Flux Power Transformer
OVERVIEW OF SCREEN HEATING SYSTEMS
Flux-Power Screen Heating Systems are ideal wherever damp or moist materials cause sizing screen cloths to blind. A heated screen reduces the moisture surface tension that causes material to stick to the cloth media itself. The heated screen remains clear allowing maximum contact between the raw material and wire cloth mesh. Electrically heated screens permit finer material separations and more accurate sizing. The overall screen efficiency increases because of the additional open cloth area for material to flow over.
Higher Efficiency = More Tonnage = Higher Productivity
The most common usage is in the processing of basic mineral deposits such as clay, shale, limestone, and other aggregates. Screen heating systems have also proven very effective in the screening of fertilizers, foods and chemicals. Specialized units constructed of materials that are compatible with the product to be screened can be furnished. Some specialized units are operating in fertilizer processing facilities handling phosphoric, potash and sulfate rock as well as cured and uncured fertilizer compounds.
Another application includes coal that was once discarded because of contamination with clay and shale. The material is crushed and screened recovering coal that is typically used in power generation.
Flux Power Screen Heating is an effective solution for:
THE HISTORY OF SCREEN HEATING
An Ancient Method…
The history of screening can be traced back to early Egypt when a series of equal openings were assembled into a mesh to separate the particles of basic minerals.
The idea of electrically heating the wire cloth dates back to European patents in 1924. This was the first of many methods in an attempt to eliminate screen blinding using heat. It was determined that heat reduced the surface tension caused by moisture.
In 1947, Hanco developed the first commercially available screen heating system. This was just in time, because industry was beginning to expand as it emerged from World War II. The first applications were limited almost exclusively to the clay industry. Soon, other applications in a variety of industries were found.
In subsequent years, various improvements in conducting tension rails using copper and flexible copper cables were delivered. Silicon bonded fiberglass improved the insulation of screen boxes. Flexible shunts were used for a brief period as an attempt to transfer the power to the vibrating screen. Hanco recognized that a major deficiency was mechanically attaching the stationary transformer to a vibrating screen…
Flux-Power Provides Freedom and Flexibility in Design…
In 1961, Hanco pioneered the Flux-Power Heating System. This new method was a departure from conventional design. Most important, the mechanical connection to the vibrating screen was eliminated.
The new design also solved other problems. Failure of the primary winding due to a short circuit on the secondary of the transformer was eliminated. The transformer could now be complete encapsulated for protection from dust and water. The Flux-Power design provided freedom and flexibility to install screen heating on virtually any vibrating screen.
THE DEVELOPMENT OF FLUX POWER TRANSFORMERS
The Flux-Power Advantage…
Flux-Power is a unique method of transmitting electrical current from a stationary power source to a vibrating screen without any mechanical connections.
Flux-Power eliminates the wear and fatigue associated with physical connections such as cables, wires and shunts.
Other Flux-Power Advantages:
- Universal Electrical input: 240, 380, 480, 575, 600 VAC, 50/60 Hz, Single Phase
- Low Output Voltage, 1.9 – 12.5 Volts Typical
- Eliminates distortion of motion
- 98% Electrical Transfer Efficiency
- Encapsulated Transformer Design
- Unlimited Secondary Current
- Flux-Power Transformers can be base mounted or suspended in any position.
- Tap Switch located on the transformer provides eight levels of heat control.
Basic Transformer Sizes:
- FL50-4 15KVA
- FL60-4 20 KVA
- FL70-4F 30KVA
- FL80-4 40 KVA
The implementation of a completely aluminum conduction system created the ultimate in electrical screen heating systems. This extruded aluminum tension rail provided a substantial improvement in electrical conductivity versus the steel/copper combination.
The most demanding applications will require the Hanco patented “Wedge-Grip” aluminum tension rail design. The rail holds the hook strip of the screen cloth with a vise-like grip. Wedge-Grip tension rails provide maximum electrical contact with the cloth in the most severe environments.
