Vacuum Barometer Type JRTB-200/12


JRTL have introduced a range of Vacuum Barometers and Manometers to assist with vacuum leak detection.  They offer a very quick & easy solution for assessing the vacuum level achieved & whether there are leaks within an evacuated part.

Vacuum Barometer Type JRTB-200/12 (pictured) displays the pressure of an evacuated part in absolute terms.

To carry out a timed, vacuum 'drop' test we would recommend our Type JRTB-8200 Series manometer with data logging & timing facility.

Both units are available ex stock.

 Countdown Timers and Over-Temperature Sentinel ControllersJRTL have recently launched a range of Countdown Timers and Over-Temperature Sentinel Controllers used as modular additions for heat sources (eg.- IR heater lamps) & temperature control equipment.

The range offers simple, cost effective solutions for applications where it is not be viable to use a hot bonding controller or other costly equipment. 

Please note the Countdown Timers can only be supplied with UK 3-pin plugs.  JRTL can offer adaptors for overseas users.

Woodpecker 632AM Handpiece

JRTL announces significant improvements of the Hot Bonding Controller Type HBC-4301A.  With its 2+ zones it is currently the most versatile bonder on the market.

The origional HBC-4301 was designed 5 years ago using the best available technology at the time.  Since then technology has moved on and so have we!  With faster microprocessor, the upgraded model still has the advantage of using a PC as the operator interface, but now it has much more computing power in the Main Control Case.


To complement our existing range of repair equipment JRTL are currently developing a new bonder.  The HBC-4302 will be a 1+ zone controller allowing single to multiple heated zones to be used in a highly mobile, cost efficient manner.

The new Woodpecker WP-632AM combines both the WP-632 Handpiece and WP-632M Monitor into one unit making it a much more powerful tool than the previous model.

Woodpecker WP-632AM with XY PlotterHaving an LCD display built into the Handpiece, it clearly shows the set and measured contact times (in mili seconds), making it easier to setup on the test standard.  The unit data-log's points giving a record / history that can be saved creating traceability of a scan.

The display means that it can be function tested in house to the manufacturers specification without the need of other expensive equipment.  Each new unit is supplied with a Function Test Kit.

The new  XY plotter is now available as an option for the Woodpecker WP-632AM.  It allows the user to measure contact time (in milli seconds) of the structure under test & displays the position of the unit on a PC (as colour tile map or numerically) if used in real time.  This record can be saved & printed creating traceability of a scan.

 The WP-632AM has been available off the shelf since the end of 2007 and sales have now exceeded 30 units to both military and civil customers.  Over the next 18 to 24 months the standard WP-632 Handpiece will be phased out.

In July 2007 the equipment received NATO codification, NSN.- 6635-99-282-4319
