The National Fluid Power Association (NFPA) published a new ISO
standard --ISO 5781:2000--that addresses the interchangeability of valves in
hydraulic systems. Valves covered in the new standard include pressure-reducing
valves, sequence valves, unloading valves, throttle valves, and check valves.
The standard applies to valves used in industrial equipment such
as machine tools and packaging equipment. It specifies dimensions and other
characteristics of the surfaces on which the valves are mounted.
NFPA is making the documents available for $43 for NFPA members.

The Industrial Internet of Things may be going off the deep end in connecting everything on the plant floor. Some machines, bearings, or conveyors simply donít need to be monitored -- even if they can be.
Wind turbines already are imposing structures that stretch high into the sky, but an engineering graduate student at the University of Notre Dame wants to make them even taller to reduce energy costs and improve efficiency.
