Burkert released its new 8030HT paddle-wheel flow sensor with a 316 stainless steel paddle-wheel. The new nonmagnetic paddle-wheel, a change from Burkert’s previous PVDF paddle-wheel, can now withstand temperatures up to 320F and pressure up to 580 psi and is corrosion resistant. The 8030HT also has a velocity range of 1.64 ft/sec to 32.8 ft/sec.
The flow sensor comes in two versions: the three-wire powered sensor and the two-wire self-powered sensor. The powered version has an output frequency pattern of a square wave and can be transmitted over lines of up to 150 ft. The self-powered version has an output frequency pattern of a sine wave and is limited to transmissions of up to 30 ft.
Burkert's 8030HT paddle-wheel flow sensor is used for high-temperature liquid applications, specifically in water treatment and automotive industries. The design of this quarter-turn, in-line sensor allows for easy mount/dismount from the line without shutting down the system, by housing the electronics separately from the paddle-wheel sensor. The list price of the 8030HT ranges from $524 for the half-inch pipe size and $830 for the two-inch pipe size.

What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
