With a robust housing made from polyxymethylene acetal (POM), the new in-line filters from Filtertek (www.filtertek.com) can withstand burst pressure of 100 psi. These filters are also bidirectional, which can provide more holding capacity.
According to Eugene Altwies, Technical Sales Engineer, these latest offerings come with three barbed port choices: ¼, 5/16, and 3/8 inches. But the potentials of applications are best reflected by the pore sizes, Altwies adds, which range from 20 to 250 microns.
Custom configurations are available for different usage or port configurations in quantities over 20,000. Retrofitting is also easy since these new robust filters have kept similar size and overall dimensions from previous versions.
Because of the increasing ubiquity of wearable technology, it would be easy to think that design of wearable devices is routine and involves common design and engineering knowledge. Missed efforts in development will be remembered once the devices are used in the field
This grab-bag of new fasteners and adhesives work with a range of materials they can attach to, as well as a wide variety of applications. Several are for use in consumer applications, such as wearables or other compact electronic assemblies, and some of the adhesives have extended service temperature ranges and cure at room temperature.
As governments, associations, and NGOs around the world seek to protect consumers, national and regional standards are becoming mandatory, challenging manufacturers and making testing and certification necessary for any product developed and brought to market.
