Works in hostile environments This line of Fluoropolymer tubing products handle gas, water and ozone sampling, heat exchangers, wastewater transfer and filtration. They resist heat and UV, and have a low friction coefficient. They can work in up to 500F (260C), and are chemically inert to work in harsh environments. They come in sizes from .004 inches ID up to 4 inches ID, and come in TexFluor® PTFE, FEP, MFA and PFA. They can be supplied in smoothbore, convoluted or extra flexible, corrugated. In corrugated form, fluoropolymer tubing goosenecks around obstacles or turn sharp corners without restricting flow. They also have a low refractive index, making it easy to see material flowing through the tube.
Using wireless chips and accessories, engineers can now extract data from the unlikeliest of places -- pumps, motors, bridges, conveyors, refineries, cooling towers, parking garages, down-hole drills and just about anything else that can benefit from monitoring.
With strong marketplace demand for qualified engineers across the board that currently outstrips the available supply, there may never be a better time for engineers and project managers to advance their careers and salaries. Whether those moves are successful in the short-term and long-term is likely to depend on how the transition from one job to the next is handled.
