  • Slicing steel with water and sand
    Tight control helps waterjet cutters slice through just about anything. Water can do a lot of things. Pressurize it a bit and you can clean a building facade and run power tools. But really pressurize it and water can cut through a 6-in. chunk of steel. That's what waterjet cutting systems from
  • D- P Quickly Spots Leakage
    When fluid-power assemblies must be tested for leakage, the traditional low-tech approaches have been: * Fill the assembly with compressed air, then slop soapy water on it to see if bubbles will reveal leaks,. * Immerse the whole assembly in a water bath, then pressurize it with air- again watching
  • Magnetic Drive Sealless Pump Smooths Caustic Unloading Operation (Chemical Processing : May 1990)
    The Ethyl Corp. Petroleum Additives Div., Suaget, Ill. Plant receives 50% caustic (sodium hydroxide) raw material by tank trucks. The caustic was formerly unloaded from truck to storage tank by using nitrogen to pressurize the tank truck, providing a flow rate of 40 gpm. Their objective
  • The basics of pneumatic control valves
    passages within a valve body. The valves pressurize and exhaust one outlet port to control a single-acting cylinder, or pilot another valve. Three-way valves direct pressurized air to the cap-end side of the cylinder. Shifting the spool to the other extreme position blocks flow and pressure
  • Rocketplane sets record
    and regeneratively cooled; liquid fuel cools the engines before being burned. The engines burn isopropyl alcohol and liquid oxygen. To get fuel to the engine, Xcor engineers decided to pressurize the fuel tanks rather than adding pumps. So the team had to add a cylindrical fuel tank beneath the fuselage
