Temperature detection is an important element of many industries, allowing for the detection and/or tracking of various changes in settings, assemblies, or devices. One popular form of such technology is the resistance temperature detector (RTD) sensor, a type of passive temperature sensing device that relies on the principle that the electrical resistance of a metal will adjust in proportion to changes in temperature. As such, any electrical current sent through an RTD sensor will create a measurable resistance value that fluctuates based on temperatures. In this blog, we will discuss RTD sensors in more detail, allowing you to have a better understanding of what types exist and how they are used.
Flow meters are vital test equipment that can be used to determine the mass and volumetric flow of a liquid or gas. As a highly versatile instrument, flow meters are called many different names depending on their industrial use, including flow gauge, flow indicator, liquid meter, and flow rate sensor. Regardless of their specific application, all flow meters are designed with the purpose of measuring fluids with greater precision and accuracy than traditional methods. Flow meters can measure the volume of a material along with its speed or mass and calculate characteristics like mass, flow, absolute pressure, differential pressure, viscosity, and temperature. There are many types of flow meters available with the most common of them listed here.
Fundamental to sensing changes in temperature, digital thermometers are an inclusive part of many homes, businesses, and industries. This makes them popular among temperature-measuring equipment, as they provide significant advantages over traditional liquid-based thermometers. Although we may see them in use during our day-to-day lives, continue reading to learn more on how digital thermometers work, alongside their benefits and eventual replacement of traditional thermometers.
On average, the typical large airliner has nearly one million fasteners, yet there is little discussion around the integral role they play in aircraft production. While fasteners are used in other sectors, the aviation industry takes advantage of them in a multitude of ways. For this reason, there are numerous types of fasteners to suit a myriad of aerospace applications.
A bench grinder is not a common tool; thus, many people are not aware of its complexity or how to use it. When set up correctly, bench grinders come in handy, ranging in use from allowing users to sharpen tools to round over thread ends on cutoff bolts. To better understand how to operate a bench grinder, we have outlined a few tips to follow.
A filter disc filters different fluids, especially in irrigation projects. As it prevents blockages from occurring and impurities from building up in your system, it can save you thousands in expensive repairs. In this blog, we will be outlining the advantages of filter discs, their varying types, and unique features.
The aviation industry has seen steady growth for the past few decades as air travel expands across the globe with new airports, more advanced aircraft, and an increased number of travelers. While the industry is quite diverse with many players acting in civil, defense, and private sectors, there are a handful of entities who have established themselves as leaders of the industry as a whole in regard to manufacturing. In this blog, we will discuss some of the top largest aircraft manufacturers in the world that operate in the commercial and private sectors.
Aircraft brakes operate under a wide range of extreme conditions and unprecedented stressors. As a result of such circumstances, aircraft brakes are prone to malfunction and damage. In this blog, we will provide an overview of the common brake problems aircraft experience during their service lives.
When the output torque of a system needs to be paused for any reason, a mechanical device known as a clutch is used. Relying on the use of friction to engage the input and output ends of an assembly, a clutch is able to detach a driveshaft from its input shaft. Clutches are often comparable to brake systems in terms of some design elements, both using disc and drum designs. In this blog, we will provide a brief overview of the hydraulic clutch in particular, allowing you to better understand its use and importance within various applications.
As aircraft have evolved over the decades since their original debut, they have become increasingly electrified with the addition of electronic flight instruments, lighting fixtures, inflight entertainment systems, and more. As a result of such equipment being present, aircraft are now designed with a plethora of cables, wires, and hoses that traverse the length of the fuselage and other structures. To protect all of these components from physical force, stressors, and interference, guarding components known as cable carriers are commonly used. As solutions for both organization and protection, it can be very beneficial to have a general understanding of what cable carriers are and how they are used.
An atomizer is defined as any device that emits liquid as a fine spray like diffuser pumps on aerosol cans or perfume bottles. Today, atomizers are integral parts of the vaping world, allowing millions of users to inhale flavored nicotine vapor. In fact, with its implementation within vapes and e-cigarette devices, many use the term “vape coil” to describe an atomizer. However, this is not entirely accurate.
Inductors are passive electrical components found in a variety of devices and equipment. Playing a critical role in signal processing, sensing operations, transformers, and more, inductors are an important technology to understand. In this blog, we will highlight the design, function, and practical applications of inductors.
