MYSTAIRE(reg) Sonimist spray chamber is for pretreatment of reactive gas flows such as TICL4 or BCL3 to form a particulate or an acid through hydrolization, or for adiabatic quench applications in hot gas streams. The chamber is frequently used as an initial stage in a scrubbing system. The inlet expansion-chamber area reduces gas velocities and allows ultrasonic mists to bring micron scale droplets into intimate and thorough contact, thereby agglomerating micron-size particulates in a fluid stream for subsequent removal.

Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
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.
