Made for heating revolving rolls, platens, molds, jacketed tanks and autoclaves, the Hot Oil Systems are designed for consistent heating in petrochemical plants, pulp and paper plants, plastics manufacturing and pharmaceutical manufacturing. Their pre-engineered, proven design package has been field tested in continuous operation up to 650F. Even heat inside the tube bundle comes from low watt-density Incoloy 800 sheath heating elements, and the systems feature the unique "Buffer Tank" design. This design prevents degradation problems with hot oil (more than 150F) at the expansion tank, but without a nitrogen purge system. They can be run in a non-hazardous area by a remote, customized control panel.
Lantronix Inc. has expanded its line of controllers for sensor networks with the release of a rugged controller that improves management of automation systems used in a number of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and chemicals.
Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
