ITT Enidine Inc.
New Visco-Elastic Support (VES) product line ITT Enidine has developed the new Visco-Elastic Support (VES) product line to provide improved dynamic behavior of the rotor-bearing system and thermal force reduction to bearing support structures. The working principle of VES is by providing high dynamic stiffness, adding supplementary damping to the rotor-bearing system, low static stiffness for thermal movement. . This reduces dynamic response of the generator, prevents the transfer of excessive thermal forces to the civil structure... (read more)Browse Rotary Dampers Datasheets for ITT Enidine Inc.

Cambridge Polymer Group, Inc.
CPG's active hydrogel research program Biomedical materials. The success of a biomedical material relies on more than an understanding of its basic underlying chemical structure. Of equal importance are the physiological effects, surface chemistry, mechanical response (of viscoelastic), and how it interacts with the surrounding tissue. To properly design around these often-competing effects one requires the type of intellectual capital and experience found at Cambridge Polymer Group. Our active hydrogel research... (read more)

Cambridge Polymer Group, Inc.
What is a Polymer? As products become more complicated in design and formulation, it becomes challenging for specialized engineers and scientists to fully understand their existing product line, as well as innovate on pipeline projects, if they lack fundamental understanding of materials. Cambridge Polymer Group offers workshops and short courses on polymer science, and can train scientists, engineers, managers and sales staff on both the basics of polymers, as well as more detailed discussions of specific...

Air Power Products Limited
Silica Gel Orange Indicator Is an adsorbent bead form of silica gel that is impregnated with an organic indicator which is rated as completely safe. This product has been developed to replace blue cobalt impregnated gels which have been declared as highly toxic and a health hazard risk. With the progression of moisture adsorption, the beads turn from Orange-Yellow to green. When the beads become saturated, they may be regenerated to their original dry state and colour by heating to between 100 to 120ºC. The product...
