Denison Hydraulics' series of open loop pumps now includes the P05 and P09 versions. The P05 has a displacement of 4.9 cubic inches per revolution, a rated operating pressure of 7,250 psi, and a maximum power rating of 287 hp. The P09 has a displacement of 8.6 cubic inches per revolution a rated pressure of 7,250 psi, and a maximum power rating of 425 hp. Both new pumps offer bearing supported cylinder barrels, angled inlet and outlet ports, and seven pistons. These and other features translate to fewer parts and enhanced reliability, faster response times, unusually quiet operation, improved pump-filling characteristics, and a compact rotating group that reduces overall pump size.
Artificially created metamaterials are already appearing in niche applications like electronics, communications, and defense, says a new report from Lux Research. How quickly they become mainstream depends on cost-effective manufacturing methods, which will include additive manufacturing.
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
