igus has developed the R2.75, a tough, cost-effective energy tube for the machine tool, woodworking and textile industries. The e-tube is also suitable for general mechanical engineering applications. The fully enclosed design of the e-tube, with an inner height of 75mm, ensures that no external debris can get inside to damage the cables and hoses.

When fabricating and specifying hose assemblies, Dixon Group Europe recommends users think ‘S.T.A.M.P.E.D’ and consider the following: size; temperature; application; media; pressure; ends; Dixon.
If you work with industrial chemicals, materials or solvents then you may have heard of the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH). The ACGIH is a scientific, but non-governmental body of industrial hygienists that publishes Threshold Limit Value (TLV) opinions on chemicals such as n-propyl bromide, the base solvent for EnSolv formulations. These TLV opinions are not held to the same standards as limits set by an organisation such as OSHA in the US, but are ...
This video from GEA Process Engineering explores the role of innovation in the home and personal care (HPC) sector and its importance for the future, both for the customer and the supplier.
Steam is used in a range of industries for a variety of processes, from a basic small heating circuit to large-scale hygienic steam production, involving specialist equipment that needs to be designed and maintained properly to ensure efficient and reliable operation of the process equipment. Bürkert UK’s Ian Webster looks at some of the basic calculations that should be understood by design and maintenance engineers in order to achieve a safe and efficient process.
Generating power can mean the use of a diverse range of technology, from a simple coal-fired facility to the latest in nuclear plants. But all have one thing in common: the need to control heat and produce steam — and this generally necessitates using large volumes of process water. This article from Industrial Purification Systems discusses the use of modern filtration technology as a means to improving both heat transfer efficiencies and plant protection.
According to Steve Cupples of Industrial Purification Systems, industry worldwide uses water in many different ways and in different amounts; therefore, water-saving technology is, in many cases, used in multiple applications. The commonalities, however, are that highly efficient water-saving techniques are proven to not only reduce an organisation’s carbon footprint but also to make huge savings on energy bills and improve production and performance.
Synthetic rubber is a common material used in virtually every industrial application and available in a range of compounds. Its versatility, resilience and dynamic properties make it an effective choice for applications involving shock absorption, sealing and fluid transportation. Although different rubber processing methods exist, extrusion remains a popular choice for many manufacturers because of the neat, uniform way extruded rubber products can be produced.
