FLUID POWER:Sierra’s Steel-Mass Model 640S Immersible Thermal Mass Flow Meter is constructed of heavy-duty 316 stainless-steel wetted materials designed for demanding industrial gas mass flow measurement applications. It is hazardous area-approved by CSA and CRN (Canada), FM (U.S.), ATEX, CE and PED (EU), IEC Ex (Australia) and Chinese Pattern Approval (China). Meter accuracy is ±1 percent of reading plus ±0.5 percent of full scale with repeatability of ±0.2 percent of full scale.
Two researchers from Cornell University have won a $100,000 grant from NASA to continue work to develop an energy-harvesting robotic eel the space agency aims to use to explore oceans on one of the moons of Jupiter.
