ARi Industries Inc.
announced immediate availability of its AerOpak
mineral-insulated (MI) thermocouple cable in an expanded assortment of sizes
and sheath materials. MI cable offers thermocouple fabricators, instruments
designers, process engineers and various equipment builders a unique solution
to the challenges of temperature measurement and electrical signal-sending in
harsh, corrosive and other hazardous environments.
Offered as thermocouple and conductor cable, AerOpak
products comprise thermocouple or conductor wires insulated with compacted
ceramic powder, drawn and encased in a seamless metallic sheath material. Standard
thermocouple or conductor cables up to 10-wire configurations are available in
various stainless steel, Hastelloy and Inconel sheath materials in OD sizes
ranging from 0.020 to 0.750 inch diameter. Cable can be supplied for
temperatures up to metal melt points of 2600F and over 1000 ft in length,
making these products suitable for all types of process operations and very
large equipment. Owing to the strict manufacturing and production standards of
ARi, MI cable signal integrity is consistent over the longest length
Thermocouple cables in Types K, E, J, T, N, R, S, and B are
stocked in calibration tolerances to meet all applicable ASTM, IEC and ANSI

manufacturer for details or installation assistance. Custom wire
configurations, other sheath materials and assorted insulation ingredients are
also available on request, to suit virtually all applications.
A Tokyo company, Miraisens Inc., has unveiled a device that allows users to move virtual 3D objects around and "feel" them via a vibration sensor. The device has many applications within the gaming, medical, and 3D-printing industries.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational
fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
