The Amphenol Helios H4 solar connector series is now available from Mouser Electronics. The connectors, which are IP68 rated and specifically designed to meet requirements for solar power and energy harvesting applications, feature a very high 52A rating. Helios H4 connectors are said to provide highly efficient power transfer with extremely low loss by the use of precision-machined contacts utilising Amphenol’s RADSOK technology.

The MultiPhaseCavitator Insert (InsertMPC48) from Hielscher is designed to improve the ultrasonic processing of liquid/liquid or liquid/gas mixes.
In order to handle the complexities of contamination on an operative’s clothing and skin, there is an argument to suggest that just the recommended ANSI Z358.1 standard of 15 minutes of dowsing time may, in many cases, not be long enough. This article discusses the benefits of bespoke units, which guarantee 30 minutes of tepid water, notwithstanding the extreme climatic conditions in which safety showers are sited.
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.
Emergency safety showers and eye baths are vital pieces of first-aid equipment wherever there is a risk of dangerous chemical spillage. Safety showers must work as specified when required every time. This need for consistent and reliable performance means that, despite their simplicity, a great deal of thought needs to be given to their design. This article considers some of the features that make a good shower and why they are worth paying extra for.
A scavenger is a chemical substance that is added to a mixture in order to remove or deactivate impurities and marring by-products. ln many reactions, an excess of starting materials is used to drive a solution phase reaction to completion. The final mixture is composed of the desired product and one or more unwanted side products. This article from Hielscher explains the uses of scavengers, the power of ultrasonic mixing and the benefits of ultrasonic scavenging and discusses batch ...
Hielscher ultrasonic reactors are used in many industries to assist and improve the catalytic extraction processing (CEP) or so-called phase-transfer extraction (PTE). Catalytic extraction involves a heterogenous immiscible phase system, such as liquid-liquid or liquid-solid. Ultrasonic high-shear and cavitational forces improve the dissolving rates of solutes significantly, leading to a faster and more complete extraction.
The sonication of coal slurries contributes to various processes during the energy production from coal. Ultrasound promotes the catalytic hydrogenation during the liquefaction of coal. Furthermore, sonication can improve the surface area and extractability of coal. Undesired chemical side reactions during the de-ashing and desulphurisation can be avoided — accomplishing the process in much less time.
Whenever a power or distribution transformer is isolated from the power system, it is likely that residual magnetism remains in the core due to the phase shift. However, residual magnetism also occurs when performing winding resistance tests. As manufacturers use these measurements in their routine testing, transformers can be regularly influenced by the effect of residual magnetism.
