FLUID POWER: The TF-1 Curved Bill Tideflex® Check Valve is designed with enhanced sealing to improve headloss across the valve. The valve is constructed entirely of rubber, making it immune to rust, corrosion and weathering.
The new TF-1 design enables the check valve to handle long-term water weight and maintain its structural integrity. The spine is at a greater vertical angle, making the TF-1 able to withstand the cantilever effect when water is flowing through the valve. The TF-1 has lower headloss compared to the original TF-2.
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.
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.
