JAMESTOWN, NY – The CTG family of companies is proud to recognize three Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics employees who stepped into a perilous situation to help save a life.

Merle Delcamp, Dean Bennett, and Patti Carlson, employees of Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics, each played an important role in the rescue of a local man who was in extreme danger.

When Merle Delcamp and Dean Bennett arrived for work at 6:30 am on Monday, July 19th, they noticed area resident, Mike Campbell, attempting to rescue a man in distress. The victim was an older man who appeared to have fallen into the Chadakoin River and was clinging to a tree.

The river’s rushing current was making the situation especially dangerous, as the three men worked to save the weakened man from the water. A steep cement bank was also impeding the progress of the rescue, making it too difficult for the men to pull the victim to safety.

Auto Parts cleaning

Ransohoff LeanVeyor systems are widely used in automotive applications, particularly for cleaning automotive gears.

For example, for the cleaning of ring and pinion gears, a manufacturer needed a solution for cleaning grinding swarf and oil at a rate of .55 milligrams per gear set for an axle with 70oz of fluid fill. The cleaning system needed to keep pace with a production rate of 72 sets per hour and incorporate a drying system to get the components completely dry. The company also needed a system with as small a footprint as possible.
