Temperature refers to the physical quantity of heat or cold in an area or object, serving as a manifestation of thermal energy. Depending upon the application, various units may be used to express temperature, common ones being Fahrenheit, Celsius, Kelvin, etc. When one wishes to determine the temperature of a given object or area, there are also numerous tools which one may rely on to receive accurate results. Thermometers are a common device that measures temperature on a gradient, and they may come in a number of types to accommodate varying needs. With the pyrometer in particular, users may quickly measure the temperature of distant objects. As a tool that is regularly used in many industries and operations, having an understanding of the pyrometer and its functionality can be very useful.
Fiber optic technology has radically changed how we transmit information, allowing for signals to be relayed in the form of light pulses within glass, plastic strands, or fibers. As compared to conventional copper wiring, the speed, bandwidth, and distance capabilities that fiber optic devices provide are immensely higher and have not even reached their full potential in some applications. While many may be familiar with fiber optic internet or other similar implementations of fiber optic technology, others may not be aware of its growing importance in the realm of sensing. With fiber optical sensors, the physical properties of light may be used for the detection of temperature changes, strain, and other quantifiable conditions.
Hot melt adhesive, sometimes known as hot glue, is a form of thermoplastic adhesive designed as solid cylindrical sticks and applied using a hot glue gun. The gun uses a continuous heating element to melt the plastic glue, which is then pushed through the gun with a mechanical trigger mechanism or with direct finger pressure. When first squeezed out of the nozzle, the glue is hot enough to damage skin. It is sticky when hot, but solidifies in a few seconds to one minute. Hot melt adhesive can also be applied by dipping or spraying.
Bolts are a type of fasteners used to hold two objects together. They are used in a broad range of applications, but there are many factors to consider while selecting the right bolt for a certain use. Among these factors are the bolt’s shape, size, thread type, length, material, coating, and class of fit. However, in addition to these factors, the bolt grade should also be considered. You may be wondering what a bolt grade refers to and why it is so important. In this blog, we will discuss bolt grades in detail.
With conveyor belts and their related systems, a large amount of materials and items may be transported through automatic means. From manufacturing facilities to airport baggage claim systems, conveyors can increase the efficiency of a workplace by lowering safety risks, minimizing human errors, and reducing labor costs. With the various types of conveyor systems available on the market, understanding their differences and applications can help you make a more well-informed decision for your operations.
On a helicopter, like any aircraft, there are certain parts that are more important than others. As such, you may find yourself buying the same parts more often than expected. In this blog, we will discuss, in no particular order, the nine most commonly purchased helicopter parts and components.
Optoelectronics is a branch of study and application centered around electronic devices that are capable of sourcing, detecting, and controlling light. From LED displays to remote controls, optoelectronics encompass many of the photonic devices that we rely on in consumer, commercial, and industrial sectors alike. In this blog, we will provide an overview of some of the various types of optoelectronic devices that are commonly available, allowing for you to better understand their functionalities and uses.
With the rapid speed at which fiber optic devices are becoming a widespread standard over those with conventional copper wiring, many industries and applications are facing constant improvements in their data transmission speeds, signal capabilities, and more. While standard consumers and businesses have both become somewhat familiar with fiber optics, many may not be aware of the various internal components that enable them to be so useful. With fiber optic transmission of signals, there can sometimes be an abundance of light that is delivered through a receiver, and thus it must be reduced for optimal power levels and functionality. With a device known as a fiber optic attenuator, the power level of such signals can be controlled, leading to more efficient operation.
You might be familiar with what a gasket is and what it can be used for but if you are a novice on this topic, you can learn more about gaskets, different types of gaskets and gasket parts in the article below. A gasket is a mechanical seal that occupies the space between two or more conjoining surfaces, and are typically utilized to stop leakages from occurring. They can also be used to stop leakage from mated materials that are experiencing compression. Gaskets can leave room for conjoined surfaces that may not initially be fitted, as a gasket can fill in any irregularities to make up for any space.
A riveting machine is a machine used to automatically set or squeeze rivets in order to join materials together. When compared to manual riveting, a riveting machine offers greater consistency, productivity, and lower cost. Today there are so many types of riveting machines available that it can be difficult to know which is the right one for you. This blog will explore a few types of riveting machines and their unique characteristics.
