FLUID POWER: Beswick Engineering’s miniature three-stage diaphragm high pressure regulator “PRD3HP” has been selected as a 2009 Design News Golden Mousetrap - Best Product Finalist! An unparalleled combination of size and performance in a high pressure regulator, the PRD3HP is capable of handling inlet pressures up to 3,000 psi, weighs approximately 79 gm in brass and is about 1 inch in diameter. It sets an industry standard for both miniaturization and light weight with its compact design. It accurately reduces inlet pressures as high as 3,000 psi down to an outlet pressure range of 0-30 psi and is especially suited to low pressure regulation such as ½ psi with minimal droop or rise, even with wide swings in inlet pressure. The PRD3HP eliminates the need for two pressure regulators (one to reduce the high pressure to an intermediate pressure and a second pressure regulator to reduce the intermediate pressure to the low pressure.)The Beswick three-stage diaphragm regulator is an excellent choice if the inlet pressure will decay over time such as with hydrogen storage tanks commonly used in hydrogen fuel cell applications. Applications include hydrogen fuel cells, medical equipment, instruments, laboratory equipment, ink jet print engines and semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
The Industrial Internet of Things is bringing a previously reluctant process industry into the wireless fold. The ability to connect smart sensors to the Internet has spiked the demand for wireless devices in process manufacturing, according to the new study from ARC Advisory Group.
Everyone has had the experience of trying to scrape the last of the peanut butter or mayonnaise from the bottom of a glass jar without getting your hand sticky. Inventor Ron Jidmar thinks he has a solution to all of that nonsense with a flexible jar design that can be squeezed with one hand to lift contents from the bottom to the top of a jar or container, leaving the other hand free to scoop the contents out cleanly.
