The Q-VDF series adjustable flow tubes are air-powered vacuum pumps featuring a straight-through design that allows debris to pass directly through without clogging. It was engineered for dusty applications, providing a combination of high flow rates up to 120 scfm and vacuum levels of up to 25 inches Hg. They come in barrel I.D. sizes from 0.1 to 0.75 inch. They are ideal for handling a variety of products, such as wood, corrugated, concrete block, as well as powder-coated packaging materials, according to the company.
A Tokyo company, Miraisens Inc., has unveiled a device that allows users to move virtual 3D objects around and "feel" them via a vibration sensor. The device has many applications within the gaming, medical, and 3D-printing industries.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational
fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
