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.
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
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.
