EXAIR's new 3/4 NPT Stainless-Steel Super
Air NozzleTM delivers 4.5 lb of strong blowing force for blow-off, cooling and
drying applications located in corrosive, high-temperature, food and
pharmaceutical environments. The force is more than five times that of ordinary
The aerodynamic design of the 3/4 NPT Stainless-Steel
Super Air Nozzle directs the compressed air to a single point of convergence,
delivering a concentrated stream of high-velocity airflow. Safe operation is
assured since the airflow cannot be blocked as required by OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.242(b). At 80 PSIG, the air consumption is
91 SCFM. The sound level of 96 dBA is below the limits of the OSHA maximum
allowable noise exposure standard 29 CFR
The Type 316 stainless-steel construction
of this Super Air Nozzle has a 1-1/4 inch (32 mm) hex body for easy
installation using a standard wrench or socket. Applications include ejection
of heavy parts, drying, part and machinery cleaning, chip removal, liquid blow-off,
and cooling hot parts. Price is $259.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Airbus Defence and Space has 3D printed titanium brackets for communications satellites. The redesigned, one-piece 3D-printed brackets have better thermal resistance than conventionally manufactured parts, can be produced faster, cost 20% less, and save about 1 kg of weight per satellite.
A group of researchers at the Seoul National University have discovered a way to take material from cigarette butts and turn it into a carbon-based material that’s ideal for storing energy and creating a powerful supercapacitor.
