SureFire Named as Plant Engineering POY Winner
Contest recognizes excellence in new products for industrial applications
[Morrisville, NC – February 8, 2005] Bijur Lubrication Corporation, a leading global manufacturer of centralized lubrication systems and components, today announced that its newest automatic lubricator, SureFire, has been named as a winner in the 2004 Plant Engineering Product of the Year contest in the Fluid Handling category.
“We are very excited that SureFire has been recognized as a product of the year winner,” said Thomas W. Arndt, President and COO of Bijur. “The response that we have received from our customers has been very positive. It reinforces that we have achieved what we set out to do --- create a world-class lubricator that adds value to our customers’ operations.”
Plant Engineering magazine sponsored this annual competition, which included 15 product categories. A panel of plant engineers chose the 10 finalists in each category. Those products were then included in the November issue of Plant Engineering, where readers reviewed the highlights of each product and then voted for the best. SureFire’s inclusion as a product of the year winner solidifies Bijur’s position as a lubrication industry leader and innovator.
"Plant Engineering's readers choose the winners in our annual Product of the Year award program,” Bob Vavra, editor of Plant Engineering said. “For 17 years, manufacturers have been anxious to be nominated and proud to win. Our readers know best when it comes to the products that make their work easier, better and more productive."
The robust and reliable SureFire automatic lubricator can pump oil and soft grease to as many as 100 lubrication points. It is a self-contained electric motor-driven gear pump that can adapt to a broad range of production machinery. It is designed to work with positive displacement injectors, although its versatility allows it to be used with a wide range of lubrication systems. The SureFire automatic lubricator is available in three reservoir sizes – 1.8 liter, 2.7 liter and 6.0 liter – to meet customers’ size requirements and lubrication demands.
