Paratherm OR(TM) heat-transfer fluid is for the prevention of acid and sludge formation, thermal breakdown, and the fouling of heated surfaces. The fluid's formation combines a two-part high-stability base with high-performance oxidation inhibitors and is targeted for applications where contact between air and hot heat-transfer fluid is unavoidable. Brochure uses a classic World War One bi-plane to demonstrate how Paratherm OR offers a solution to sludge formation in heat-transfer systems.
Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
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.
