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.
In this new Design News feature, "How it Works," we’re starting off by examining the inner workings of the electronic cigarette. While e-cigarettes seemed like a gimmick just two or three years ago, they’re catching fire -- so to speak. Sales topped $1 billion last year and are set to hit $10 billion by 2017. Cigarette companies are fighting back by buying up e-cigarette manufacturers.
Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
