MATERIALS: Mott Corp.’s porous metal products, assemblies and filters are being used in a number of medical applications (gas and liquid) requiring exacting filtration performance, precise flow specifications, biocompatibility, high-temperature resistance, and the ability to withstand aggressive thermal and chemical sterilization processes repeatedly. The company designs and manufactures porous metal products to specifically meet filtration and flow-control requirements for many medical device manufacturers and designers. These products include biocompatible porous titanium filters, implantable devices for venting or drug delivery, metal filters for test stands, spargers used in cell-culture processes, filters to prevent plugging in catheters and precision flow restrictors for the delivery of gases in life-critical systems.
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.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
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.
