Hender-PE’s line of pumps and filtration systems includes the D13 series of sealless, bearingless vertical pumps.
The March issue of Products Finishing takes a look at coatings for the energy sector, specifically for wind energy. Surface Technology’s Michael Feldstein takes a deep look at composite electroless nickel finishes.
It’s obvious that Silvex specializes in silver, but its processes also reach into the defense, aerospace, power generation and medical industries.
Whitford specializes in manufacturing low-friction, wear-resistant coatings for industrial applications in automotive, aerospace, energy and construction products.
Royal DSM’s Hybrane CY235 is a high-solid acrylic resin designed to enhance the performance of metal coatings while providing higher throughput and reduced energy consumption.
Bex says its eductors take advantage of the surrounding liquid to create a high-velocity flow yield at the diffuser, circulating as much as five times the pump output with a discharge plume broader than the jet from a solid stream nozzle of equivalent energy.
General Fabrications Corp.’s finishing systems feature variable frequency drives for washer pumps coupled with pressure transducers for the changing of spray pressure.
Heather Lemieux has a diverse background in technology and customer service, including five years of experience in the oil and gas industry.
It can repel water, oil, alcohol and even peanut butter, and it might save the U.S. Navy millions of dollars in ship fuel costs, reduce the amount of energy that vessels consume and improve operational efficiency.
Simultaneous engineering reduces energy and resource consumption.
Innovative Applications of Electroplating and PVD for New Material Solutions - The 54th William Blum Lecture
The following is Dr. Per Møller’s William Blum Memorial Lecture at SUR/FIN 2018, in Cleveland, Ohio on June 4, 2018, with commentary by NASF Technical Editor James H. Lindsay. It covers a variety of projects involved with surface finishing applications, including sustainable energy. Due to Dr. Møller’s serious illness, he was unable to make the journey to SUR/FIN. In his stead, his longtime professional colleague, Dr. Lars Pleth Nielsen, of the Danish Technological Institute (DTI), presented the lecture.
The product line can be used in both the surface finishing and waste-treatment sectors, and are designed not only to save energy, but also to be compact, rugged and corrosion-proof.
Metamaterial optical solar reflectors (meta-OSRs) are the first surface coatings on the outside of a spacecraft, designed to effectively radiate infrared heat away from it while reflecting most of the optical solar spectrum.
KCH Engineered Systems will display its Smart Tank Cover system at Sur/Fin 2018, designed for energy savings and increased worker protection against airborne fugitive emissions.
Integrated Technologies’ Plato’s Process Planner is a process modeling and planning software that calculates energy, water, waste streams, chemical usage, air emissions and costs by tank, process, line and overall wet-process facility.
Hitachi High-Technology Analytical Science’s FT110A benchtop energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) analyzer is designed to measure large parts with complex geometries, while the FT150 model is suited for analyzing ultra-thin coatings on small features.
