FLUID POWER: Mott Corp. is now offering its FLP Series filter line for liquid source gas applications in the semiconductor market, as well as high-flow applications in the photovoltaic and biopharmaceutical markets. The FLP Series accommodates high flow rates in very low pressure drop applications. The extremely open media allows for easy passage of the low-pressure liquid source gas while having enough surface area to efficiently remove particles down to 0.003µm and is especially effective at preventing large particle agglomerations from migrating downstream. These filters are all-metal and constructed from 316LSS. This allows them to withstand the higher temperatures needed to keep the low pressure gases and organometallics in vapor phase. The FLP Series currently consists of three standard configurations that make it easy to match to any existing heat jacketed filter installations.
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.
Is the factory smarter than it used to be? From recent buzzwords, you’d think we’ve entered a new dimension in industrial plants, where robots run all physical functions wirelessly and humans do little more than program ever more capable robotics. Some of that is actually true, but it’s been true for a while.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
