Made for coating large structures and components such as motor housings, bag houses, cyclones, hoppers, pipelines and precipitators, this single-part, gray, low-viscosity, polymeric coating cures and dries at room temperature into a hard, non-porous and abrasion resistant material. It has survived long-term salt fog, salt spray and humidity of over 1,000 hours, and resists hydrochloric, nitric, ethylene chloride and sulfuric acids. It comes in a 200-240 cps viscosity, a specific gravity of 1.05 gms/cc, and solids by volume of 49 percent (67 percent by weight). It usually goes on by brush, roller or ordinary pneumatic spray equipment in a 4.0 mil wet film thickness, and dries to about 2.0 mils, typically covering 722 sq ft per gallon in a 1.0 mil dry film. It can also be applied directly on rusted surfaces. It comes in pint, quart and gallon containers. Aremco Products Inc.http://rbi.ims.ca/4928-624
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.
