TÜV Rheinland: Cyber risks for industrial plants underestimated

Cyberattacks can threaten the industrial facilities of companies even more than their IT systems. However, a holistic view of the security of industrial plants is often lacking. This is a key finding of a recent study on security in industrial companies by TÜV Rheinland and the Ponemon Institute. Operational Technology in the sights of the Read more about TÜV Rheinland: Cyber risks for industrial plants underestimated[…]

Engineering plastic with optimized sliding friction properties

BASF is launching an engineering plastic that is particularly suited for automotive parts that come into contact with hot oil. The new polyethersulfone (PESU) Ultrason® E0510 C2TR shows very good tribological properties, high oil resistance and excellent dimensional stability also with broad ranges of temperature fluctuations. The injection-molding grade with a ten percent carbon fiber reinforcement Read more about Engineering plastic with optimized sliding friction properties[…]

Emerson’s New Air Dryers Quadruple Maintenance Intervals in Rail Applications

Today Emerson introduced two new compressed air dryers designed to significantly extend maintenance intervals, minimize downtime and reduce energy costs in rail applications, including brakes and door control. Typically, air dryers have an average service interval of less than two years. The AVENTICSTM RDD (Roll-Up Dessicant Drying) and RDDmin air dryers, have a service interval Read more about Emerson’s New Air Dryers Quadruple Maintenance Intervals in Rail Applications[…]

Safe installation and commissioning of diaphragm valves with GEMÜ PPF multifunction adapters

GEMÜ PPF (Pressure, Passivation, Flushing) multifunction adapters can be used to prevent the penetration of foreign particles when installing diaphragm valves, resulting in enormous cost savings. It is a basic fact that all installation work involving piping, such as the installation of valves, poses a risk of contamination. The entry of foreign matter or contaminants Read more about Safe installation and commissioning of diaphragm valves with GEMÜ PPF multifunction adapters[…]

Gericke RotaVal EHDM rotary valve designed for abrasive powders

In the construction chemical, environmental or mineral industry they handle specific abrasive products like glass cullet, carbon, cement, dolomite, quartz and more. They are exposed to important effects of abrasion. The wear of the rotor but also of the body happens even if the rotary valves are made of hardened materials and alloys. Such treatment Read more about Gericke RotaVal EHDM rotary valve designed for abrasive powders[…]

Plugging instead of screwing: Safe and fast filling of oxygen cylinders with WEH Connectors

In cases of particularly severe courses of Covid-19, mechanical ventilation with oxygen is often the only way to save a patient’s life. Even in less severe cases, oxygen supply supports the patients in breathing. With the increasing spread of the corona virus, the need for medical oxygen has therefore risen sharply. In practice, this means Read more about Plugging instead of screwing: Safe and fast filling of oxygen cylinders with WEH Connectors[…]
