The new 156 Lee Bender Jet is a
miniature, lightweight restrictor that incorporates multiple orifices in series
to lower fluid velocities and reduce the possibility of cavitation. Weighing
only 1.1 gm, this multi-orifice restrictor offers a 21 percent weight savings
over the 187 Bender Jet and is 17 percent smaller in diameter, resulting in a
corresponding reduction in installation boss size and weight.
Designed to meet the requirements of 5,000 psi systems, the 156 Bender Jet is
offered in eight standard Lohm rates, ranging from 1,900 to 9,500 Lohms, and is
protected with two integral safety screens for bidirectional flow capability.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
