Materials: Mott Corp.’s sintered powder porous metal elements for liquid/solid and hot gas/solid separation in the refinery, petrochemical and chemical processes will be showcased in a shared exhibit space with Bekaert at this year’s ACHEMA show in Frankfurt, Germany, May 11-15. The booth location will be in Hall 5.0, Stand D9-D12.
Mott specializes in developing effective all-metal process filtration systems that improve process efficiencies, protect customer equipment investments and simplify the process of installing, as well as maintaining large process systems. Mott products are ideal for high-temperature and harsh corrosive environments. Applications currently utilizing Mott’s filter systems include gasification, FCCU slurry oil, catalyst recovery - slurry phase reactors, polishing of corrosive liquids and gases, process steam filtration and guard filtration for fixed bed reactors.
Mott also provides porous metal products for applications requiring media that provides flow control, particle capture, venting or gas to liquid contacting (sparging). The company has design teams that continually engineer porous metal components, sub-assemblies and finished products for applications in a wide variety of industries, including biotechnology, medical, chemical, petrochemical, instrumentation, fuel cells, food and beverage, semiconductor, and power and energy.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest growing engineering fields; from medical devices and pharmaceuticals to more cutting-edge areas like tissue, genetic, and neural engineering, US biomedical engineers (BMEs) boast salaries nearly double the annual mean wage and have faster than average job growth.
