Roller bearings are critical components that find use in countless machines. When roller bearings become damaged, other machine parts or the products they are intended to produce can become compromised. Similar to ball bearings, roller bearings are designed to carry loads and reduce friction between parts. As such, it is common for them to experience some abrasion over time that necessitates replacement or repair.

A marine diesel engine is a common type of engine used to power a ship. In general, diesel engines are more efficient than gasoline engines and produce less pollution. In addition, marine diesel engines are designed to withstand harsh conditions at sea, such as saltwater, high winds, and waves. Therefore, they are built to be durable and reliable. They are also designed to run on heavy fuel oil, which is less expensive than gasoline. Diesel engines have many advantages over other engines which is why they are preferred for powering ships.

If it were not for industrial pins, countless instances of fastening, aligning, integrating, and assembling two or more working components of machinery would not be possible. In fact, the various industries that rely on machinery for daily operations would quickly suffer without proper solutions to keep assemblies together and secure. It is remarkable to think how modern industries' most basic structural units are simply metallic, low-cost fasteners meant for the secure alignment of two discrete units.

The right fan can make a big difference between the operation of heating and cooling systems. There are many different models, but it pays to research before buying one. The wrong type of fan could lead to underperformance and high operating costs due to the lack of efficiency or even more significant problems, such as excessive noise levels from an ineffective motor. There are several types of fans available, and the most commonly used fans found in HVAC systems are:

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.
