66 • ROCK products • March 2019 The winning startups will be invited to Monterrey, Mexico, to present their projects to an audience made up of world leaders in innovation, investment and construction on July 18. In addition to the introduction to new investors and companies focused on innovation, Cemex Ventures will work with the startups that best fit its needs. "We have a large offering for startups that enter our portfolio, through which we commit to build together a tailor-made path to achieve the best results," said Gonzalo Galindo, CEO of Cemex Ventures. "Beyond pure investment, we offer smart money to understand the needs of the entrepreneur and take advantage of our resources to enable them to lead the con- struction revolution." PCA Applauds FHWA Nomination of Nason The U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee approved by voice vote the nomination of Nicole Nason to be the administrator of the Federal Highway Administra- tion (FHWA). The Portland Cement Association (PCA), which endorsed Nason's nomination in a letter to the committee, urged the full Senate to move expeditiously to confirm her. "The Portland Cement Association strongly supports Nicole Nason to be the administrator of the Federal Highway Admin- istration as the federal government looks to reauthorize the FAST Act and develop a funding solution for the Highway Trust Fund before it becomes insolvent," said PCA President and CEO Michael Ireland. "The challenges facing America's roads, bridges and tunnels are considerable and Nason brings the type of experience that is needed for this important posi- tion. PCA believes the full Senate will confirm Nason in the near future and PCA looks forward to developing a strong working relationship with her going forward." Nason, a former National Highway Traffic Safety Administra- tion chief (2006-2008), is currently assistant secretary of the Bureau of Administration. She previously served as the acting assistant secretary for overseas building operations and as senior advisor to the Secretary of State. PRODUCTS Camfil APC rolled out Gold Cone X-Flo (GCX) Filter Cartridge for high-ef- ficiency industrial dust collection. Building on the proven performance of HemiPleat Gold Cone technology, GCX filters stay cleaner and last longer than conventional pleated filters, noted the manufacturer. GCX filter cartridges use a proprietary inner pleat pack with an open-bot- tomed, inner-cone of media that greatly expands the usable surface area of the cartridge. Because the HemiPleat design exposes more media to the air- stream, more dust is loaded on the filter and released during pulse cleaning. These filters are available in a selection of regular or nano-fiber media and are guaranteed to meet EPA particle emis- sion requirements. GCX filters were designed specifically for Camfil APC's new Gold Series X-Flo (GSX) dust collector. The unique loca- tion of the GCX filter in the collector enables more downward-facing media than standard, competitive systems. The cone is configured so that pulsed air is evenly distributed top to bottom along the outer pack of the filter and down through the inner cone pack. That means with each pulse, the GCX cone cartridge ejects more dust out of the collector, straight down to the hopper. This design offers an advantage over horizontal-style filters that pulse most of the dust back onto adjacent filters. Used together, the GSX collector and GCX filter maximize airflow while min- imizing filter change-outs, compressed air usage and energy costs. GSX dust collectors are ideal for industrial appli- cations that produce or process fine, fibrous and heavy dusts and fumes. Camfil APC, Camfil APC Introduces High-Efficient Filter Cartridges
