What are British Thermal Units (BTUs), and why do we use them as a unit of measurement in the United States? Let’s take a look at the history of the term and how BTUs stack up against other forms of thermal energy measurement.
Data centers are the invisible heroes of our modern digital age. Their presence enables our communications, streaming, downloading, research, work, and play 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. As of 2020, there are around 20 Billion devices currently connected to the internet. These centers serve as crucial hubs for data transmission and storage, and they are becoming larger and more advanced every year.
Plastic injection molding is a crucial manufacturing process in today’s modern world. The ability to mass produce identical plastic components further drives innovation and industrial progress every year. The goals of successful plastic manufacturing are precision, repeatability, and speed. These same goals should be applied to cooling plastic as well.
The cooling process can consume at least 80% of the overall plastic manufacturing time. That means, by applying an efficient industrial cooler to the injection molding process, you can greatly reduce the amount of time spent on each batch. But where does one begin the process of looking for an injection molding chiller? Let’s take a closer look.
Products created by plastic Pressurized chambers have become extremely ubiquitous in our modern era. They vary greatly in size and application and their industrial uses continue to expand every year. As technology improves, the environments they are capable of simulating are becoming increasingly more extreme. Let’s take a look at the most extreme pressure chamber out there…a Thermal Vacuum Chamber (TVC).
Since the advent of mechanical chilling, industrial chillers have become a lucrative and crucial component of the global economy. Industrial chilling has fractured into a wide array of solutions and the demand continues to increase each year. The markets that rely the heaviest on chilling are chemical/petrochemicals, manufacturing (especially plastics), machinery (lasers, EDM, CNC machines), agriculture, construction, printing, server cooling, food and beverage processing, rubber manufacturing, and medical/bio-pharmaceuticals.
