Picking the Best Water Treatment System for Your Home
There are two types of water treatment systems, they include: the filtration process and softening process. The best system for you is determined by the type of water piped to your home. Many people fail to get the right system because they do not consider the components in the water. Listed below are several factors that can be helpful when picking the right system: The nature of filters and softener The water filters are equipment used in the removal of physical contaminants from the water. The filters comprise of small apparatus and the bigger ones. The bigger filters have the ability of sieving the entire water system in a home.…
100-Year-Old Technologies (That Haven’t Changed Much and Still Rock)
"They don't make 'em like they used to," many nostalgic, wistful people will say. There are two things wrong with that statement. The first is that it's usually said as though that's a bad thing. Most of the time, technology changes for the better. The other thing that's wrong with that statement is that there are plenty of things we use today that we still make exactly like we used to.
Top 5 Safety Tips for Operating a Gas Heater
I love the cooler months, and I just love firing up my gas heater and getting nice and cosy and warm underneath it in the evenings. My outdoor heater particularly comes in handy when I have friends over, and thanks to my patio heater, I can have people over in the evening – whether it’s for drinks outside after dinner or a casual Sunday session with the girls, it’s possible to stay out longer when the sun goes down. This is all a bonus for me, as I simply love being outdoors. I have a young family as well and I really need to make sure that they’re safe first…
Discover the Versatility of Plastic Rivets
Rivets are hardware items that are designed to fasten materials and mechanical parts. Many people know about metallic rivets. They are quite common. However, not many know about plastic ones. Plastic rivets are used in various items in our lives. They are applied to fasten together the materials and parts in…
Linear Actuator Improves Ergonomics at Printer Manufacturer
In normal circumstances, as each sub-assembly moves between work station on the production line, a printer is supposed to go together with it. Upon completion of his job, the assembler prints out a work order using a printer. Traditionally, it was required by the operating process that tri-level carts be used to transport all items…
How Automotive Technology Is Advancing at a Startling Rate
Everywhere we look nowadays, we see technology moving forward at an ever-increasing pace. It seems like new phones come out every other week, and technology that even science fiction authors wouldn't have dreamed of sixty years ago is now commonplace. Who would have thought that cars will someday drive themselves? Or that we would have drones flying around and monitoring everything we do?
The Cutting-Edge Tech Behind Driverless Cars
Driverless cars are appearing in headlines more and more frequently. The technology is certainly attractive, because it promises to deliver a much safer driving experience. Automatic systems can scan the environment and react to obstacles much faster than a human driver. Self driving cars would also be far more convenient, because the driver is no longer required to manage the vehicle.
The Atomic Clock and International Time
There are many devices that have been used to measure time since the concept of time began. From the position of the sun to using the ingenious sun dial to nanosecond accurate clocks today, time telling has evolved over the ages. In the history of the clock, there have been sun dials, hour glasses, water clocks, pendulum clocks and mechanical clocks.
Behind The Scenes Of A Working Oil Rig
Oil rigs are enormous, industrial giants out in the ocean. Yet, at the same time, they're oddly beautiful and fascinating. At least, they are from afar! Up close, they certainly are industrial giants. These vital engineering structures exist to draw oil and natural resources from deep beneath the ocean. They have become an integral part of the powerful oil industry that keeps our lights on and cars moving. But, what's it like onboard one of these monster oil rigs?
Designing a Safer, More Efficient Operating Room
The operating room of a health care facility is a place where miracles happen every day. Cancer is eradicated, life-saving organ transplants are performed and joint replacements that restore the activities of daily life are completed. Yet, sometimes operating rooms can be places of danger if proper safety protocols are not instituted for both patients and health care workers.
