This article depicts how I conducted a meticulous investigation exploring the undisclosed operational design parameters of the patented EPDM rubber gaskets. I got tangible solutions, which solved our gasket quality problems successfully without violating the patentee’s copyrights.
GKN driveline UK Company has evolved new technology on propeller shafts produced out of carbon fibre composite material which can be recycled. GKN is a world leader for composite prop shafts since 1988.
Many modern trucks have service problems due to design faults. Of these, the propeller shaft in particular suffers inherent manufacturing and inspection lapses. Although 1960s technology is still found in some models, Volvo, Mercedes Benz, and BMW have improved components.
The Stress Relaxation test on rubber products determines several years of life time endurance. Test buttons are made from rubber products. Samples preparation must be done with extreme care. Tests are as per EN 681 Standards.
Asphalt shingles can be placed effectively over the existing roof. Nevertheless, it is recommended that if the existing roof layers exceed three, the old roofing structure is removed totally before fixing new shingles. Roof defects include thermal tearing, loss of granules, and curling.
The heavy duty trailer tires normally used are radial since these tires have superior strength and improved wear characteristics. These tires are extremely expensive, and need to be appropriately preserved by maintaining proper tire pressures and observing other necessary precautions.
Compact tractors are widely used in the construction industries and are considered to be extremely useful equipment for these purposes. Numerous tractor implements like backhoe loaders, buckets, draw-bars, and stabilizer bars specifically make the compact tractors helpful.
Mineral spirits are excellent materials that are widely being used as paint thinners and as a substitute for turpentine. The turpentine chemical formula is not much different from mineral spirits. However, mineral spirits is more popular being both more economical and more effective.
Formwork systems are widely being used in the construction industry, including bridge decks. The creation of structural elements by the formwork systems has greatly benefited the construction industry.
Epoxies are initially in a liquid state that is changed by chemical reaction to a solid state. The basic components in epoxy are hardeners and resins. Due to their excellent properties, epoxy floors, epoxy primer, and epoxy glue are extremely popular.
Rubberized asphalt concrete is extremely useful for road construction projects since it is economical. It is prepared from used tires that otherwise are delivered to the landfills and occupy useful space. Rubberized Asphalt Concrete pavements include binders to resist rutting.
Glass fiber reinforced concrete is an engineered material that contains cement, polymers, and glass fibers that are ingrained in the cementious matrix. The GFRC properties are influenced by the glass contents, mix design, and production process. GFRC is mainly used for external applications.
Surveying is an old technique that has advanced from the use of simple measuring instruments to the use of modern precise instruments. GPS map coordinates and automated total stations are now easily available that are used to indicate an accurate location of geographical areas.
A lubrication system is essential for wear prevention in machine parts. The hydraulic oil forms a thin film between the moving parts that prevents their direct contact with each other. The hydraulic oil viscosity should be suitable for the application.
An aquifer is a geological water bearing formation that contains or conducts water. The term aquifer is normally limited to the formations that are capable of producing water in quantity. Fractured aquifers include various rock types, but confined aquifers basically contain impervious rocks.
There are several kinds of door styles and materials that are being used for modern houses. The door selection is influenced by the type and style of building where they will be fitted. The major door materials are wood, fiberglass, and steel. However, the external door has a special significance.
Paint removal is a technique that requires special skill to prevent damage to the surfaces from where paint is removed. The traditional methods for paint removal require a lot of skill and time. Infrared heat gun may be used for paint removal that is much more fast, reliable, and safe.
