With the highest melting point of any metal, tungsten is strong at high temps. Its primary use is in the manufacture of alloys. Alloys made by melting and mixing two or more metals, and tungsten alloys are used in electrical devices and cutting tools when strength and heat resistance are imperative.
Many factory, hospital, and home environments need specific levels of humidity for ideal work or health. Hygrometers play a crucial role in maintaining the right levels, as this article shows.
Is the Green Movement authentic? Even if it is, how do we separate the truly good Green from scams, bad science, and cheap technology? Read on to find out more.
Lithium-ion battery technology has enabled the mobile technology revolution as well as the electric car movement. However, lithium is not the battery panacea that the world is looking for. There are many problems with this technology and researchers have turned their sights towards sodium instead.
Water meters are used in all sectors of society - manufacturing, construction, weather detection, and at home. Here is a list of the types and uses of different water meters.
This article considers how computer-aided design software has completely revolutionised the manufacturing industry. The article delves into the different types of cad software available and the huge benefits that it can bring to manufacturing companies large and small.
Plastics are ubiquitous and there are 3 types which are normally recyclable and identifiable by an imprinted code. There are at least 10 more plastics used in the home which you may not be aware of.
This article details what soft robotics is, how it works, what it can be made of, and applications for it in the field. This includes current uses, and ways it may be useful in the future.
Multibeam antennas and multiband antennas are different types of RF hardware, though there is significant confusion on the matter. We'll explain the differences in the types of antennas and where they may overlap.
Alloys of lithium are used in many industries (especially batteries). Mixed it forms alloys and compounds. Its salts are medically used as mood changers , especially to treat forms of depression.
Evaluating the impact of recycling metals can be little tricky. Keeping metal out of landfills cuts down on the speed with which we fill them up. It also prevents oxide seepage. Steel recycling saves on the amount of wood we use. It contributes to taxes, wages, and recycles evermore.
Moisture meters are calibrators that measure the amount of moisture within a solid or semisolid, like concrete or cheese. There are many different kinds for different kinds of work.
We've all heard the popular belief that buying is usually better than renting, whether it be a home, a car, or otherwise. Could this apply to electricity, as well? If so, how does a person "buy" electricity, and is it more cost effective than "renting" it from power companies? Find out here.
Proposed in 2010, Matthias Loster proposed a simple idea: what if we were able to power the entire world with solar energy? What is the most optimal way we could accomplish this? How easy would it be? This article will cover his answer, as well as explore a bit into its integrity 9 years later.
Is generating electricity from 100% renewable energy sources impractical and unattainable? The answer is clearly no since there are already several countries that generate 100% of the electricity they use from renewable sources of energy. Many others are approaching the 100% renewable threshold.
