When you are working with fasteners and assemblies, it is always useful to have the right tools for the job so that operations can be completed quickly and efficiently. Depending on the type of fastener in question, there are numerous tools one may use for installation and removal. For nuts and bolts, the socket and ratchet tool is quite useful, featuring a socket that is placed over the head of a fastener and a handle that allows for turning or loosening. The most important element of a socket and ratchet tool is the ability for it to be used without making full revolutions around a fastener, allowing for the tightening and loosening of such components in more compact spaces.

Temperature transmitters are electronic devices used to send a temperature measurement over two wires to a separate processing unit. Utilized in industrial manufacturing as a means of process control, temperature transmitters provide feedback regarding heat measurements at varying stages of the manufacturing process. To do this, these transmitters pick up small electrical signals from the temperature sensor, such as a thermocouple, and convert them into more readable signals to calculate heat levels.

Industrial air compressors are versatile devices that provide pressurized air for a myriad of industry applications. They work by utilizing either an electric motor or a diesel or gasoline-powered engine to convert power into potential energy that can be stored in pressurized air. As industrial compressors are used for many operations, it is important to select an air compressor that can deliver the desired results. With this in mind, we will provide a brief overview of industrial air compressors, how they work, and the various types currently available.

A valve is a device that is common to fluid applications, serving to direct or control the flow of fluids within a system. To do this, valves may open, close, or obstruct various pathways, and they come in numerous types and designs to accommodate a diverse set of needs. Ball and globe valves are both primary types of valve components, each of which differ from one another in terms of operations and design. To help you best find an optimal fit for your particular fluid applications, we will discuss both in this blog.

When operating heavy equipment such as tractors or cranes, the power necessary for moving such weight is made possible through the use of hydraulic pumps. With a hydraulic pump, oil and fluids may be forced through hydraulic chambers or a hydraulic engine to create mechanical power. As a result, a hydraulic machine can lift, lower, open, close, and turn machine segments with power that would be impossible to achieve through human strength alone.

In hydraulic systems, accumulators serve as pressure vessels that are capable of storing and releasing energy within the system as needed, similar in operation to battery chargers. Hydro-pneumatic accumulators are a specific type, taking advantage of compressible nitrogen for the means of storing pressurized fluids. Commonly found in the global fluid power industry, hydro-pneumatic accumulators may serve pulsation dampeners, emergency power sources, thermal expansion, transfer barriers, prefills, noise attenuation, leakage compensators, dispensers, and much more. In general, there are various designs for maintaining the separation of gases and fluids, the primary types being bladder accumulators, diaphragm accumulators, piston accumulators, and float accumulators.

Essential for any machinery powered by a motor, motor mounts, also known as engine mounts, are used to connect a motor to a chassis. Maximizing shock absorption, sound absorption, and limiting vibrations experienced by an engine system during operation, differing types of motor mounts are designed to give every engine the security it needs. To familiarize yourself with the various types of engine mounts, we will discuss what common options are available, their pros, and cons.

Milling refers to the process of removing materials from a workpiece with the use of rotary cutters, and it may be conducted with a wide range of machinery. In modern applications, computer numerical control (CNC) systems are regularly used to carry out such operations, taking advantage of automation to efficiently and accurately achieve desired results. CNC milling relies on CNC machine types to automate rotary cutters for completing a piece, also often being capable of switching out tools to minimize the need for manpower. With their method of operations, CNC milling can be considered the opposite of CNC turning. In this blog, we will discuss the common types of milling cutter equipment and tools that are commonly used in manufacturing processes, providing a brief explanation of each so that you may understand their functionalities.

Industrial valves come in a wide range of designs to fit various handling needs. Though they are commonplace for residential and home use, irrigation, HVAC systems, and various other processes, industrial valves are ideal for systems that require a higher threshold for pressure demand. Commonly composed of a valve body, valve bonnet, valve actuator, and valve trim, these parts work together to create what is commonly known as a valve.
