MATERIALS: Mott Corp.’s porous metal GasSaver® spargers are the most efficient and durable devices for applications requiring the infusion of gases into liquids, slurries or semi-solid emulsions, and are the high-performance solution to gas-liquid mixing problems.They deliver the optimum balance of performance and cost because their design is matched to process requirements, and they employ porous metal gas diffuser elements which allow the introduction of tiny, micron size bubbles into a turbulently flowing stream of liquid.
Because they have no moving parts to wear out or fail, Mott GasSavers® are more cost-effective and extremely durable. They offer substantial savings in capital cost, maintenance expense and gas consumption. Enhanced reaction time means higher process throughput and reduced operating expense.
Applications include: deoxygenation, oxygenation, hydrogenation, direct steam injection, aeration and carbonation.
Science fiction author Isaac Asimov may have the best rules for effective brainstorming and creativity. His never-before-published essay, "On Creativity," recently made it to the Web pages of MIT Technology Review.
Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
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.
