MATERIALS: NewAge® Industries’ line of nylon hose clamps, called Kwik ClampTM, now withstands temperatures ranging from -40 to 302F (-40 to 150C) and handle moderate non-hydraulic pressure applications in a wide variety of industries. Kwik ClampsTM offer a patented double row of durable teeth to ensure a strong bond that will not vibrate loose. They are made from U.L.-listed, black, nylon 6-6 and cannot corrode or rust like some of their metal counterparts. As their name implies, installation and removal is quick; no tools are needed. Kwik ClampsTM are lightweight, non-conductive and may be reused. They are well stocked and available for same-day or JIT (Just In Time) shipment. More than 30 sizes are offered and range from ¼ through 4-1/4 inch nominal O.D. An assortment of fittings, tubing and reinforced hose is also stocked for complete fluid or air transfer systems.
For decades, engineers have worked to combat erosion by developing high-strength alloys, composites, and surface coatings. However, in a new paper, a team at Jilin University in China turned to one of the most deadly animals in the world for inspiration -- the yellow fat-backed scorpion.
Green energy is being billed as a way to make communities that are energy deprived more self-sustaining. So it makes sense to use natural materials to create devices that harvest this type of energy. That’s the idea behind a hybrid wind/solar energy harvester made of bamboo that’s been developed by UVM researchers.
Anyone who’s ever moved files from a hard drive to a computer has sat patiently waiting for the transfer to complete. But what if this process could be done wirelessly, without having to connect devices with cables, and in seconds?
