AW Company's latest meters are made for high-pressure systems that need flow meters rated up to 15,000 psi (1035 bar). They are designed for high-pressure hydraulic and fuel systems and offshore chemical injection systems ranging from methanol, corrosion and wax inhibitors, and water treatment chemicals, along with other applications. They come with medium-pressure autoclave connections, 316 SS bodies and xylan-coated bolts. They have flow ranges from 0.003 to 7 gpm. The bi-directional meters can be hydrotested to 1.5x the working pressure rating. Explosion-proof sensors and displays are available for the meters. Also available are ATEX certificates for non-sparking devices and material certificates 2.2 and 3.1b.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
