In racing, centrifugal force throws hot oil into the fuel-pump housing, resulting in increased heat transfer to fuel and oil leaks. Working in conjunction with Robert Yates Racing, Seals-it solved the problem using a molded neoprene seal bonded to an alloy plate to seal around the pump arm.
An insulating gasket and sleeved, insulated bolts also cut down on the engine heat transferred to the pump, further reducing fuel temperatures.
Designed for Robert Yates Belt Drive systems, the kit keeps hot engine oil from entering the fuel pump cavity on Ford, GM, and MOPAR applications.
Surveillance, reconnaissance, and search and rescue in military and first responder situations are popular applications for aerial robots. Yet not all the robots are considered unmanned aerial vehicles.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
