This seal has already been in use in ball valves, valve seats, valve body/bonnet seals, butterfly valve seats, down-hole tools, cryogenic swivel seals and other sub-sea equipment used in oil and gas exploration and production. Now, the seal's Fluoroloy materials have passed qualifications for NORSOK M710. Materials were aged and subjected to high percentages of hydrogen sulphide(15 to 20 percent H2S for the Kashagan Field Development) and high temperatures.
In an age of globalization and rapid changes through scientific progress, two of our societies' (and economies') main concerns are to satisfy the needs and wishes of the individual and to save precious resources. Cloud computing caters to both of these.
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 discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
