MATERIALS: Seals-it, the industry leader in molded and bonded elastomers, has introduced its SEALFLEX elastomer rod end. The bonded and molded construction eliminates the noise, harshness and vibration problems associated with conventional spherical bearing type rod ends. The unique construction allows rotational, radial and axial movements that traditional rubber bushing and sleeve type ends cannot accommodate. Standard sizes are available to allow easy replacement of existing rod end applications.
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
