USES OF NITROGEN GAS

Nitrogen is a chemical element with symbol N and atomic number 7. Elemental nitrogen is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, and mostly inert diatomic gas at standard conditions. Scientist has proven that four-fifths of Earth’s atmosphere is nitrogen, which was isolated and recognized as a specific substance during early investigations of the air.Among the elements, nitrogen ranks sixth in outer space abundance. The atmosphere of Earth consists of 75.51 percent by weight (or 78.09 percent by volume …

Types of Hoses and Their Uses

A hose is a flexible hollow tube designed to carry fluids from one location to another. Hose design is based on a combination of application and performance. Common factors are size, pressure rating, weight, length, straight hose or coil hose, and chemical compatibility.Industrial hoses are more than a flexible, reinforced tube. They are the heart of your operation serving as transfer lines for a variety of applications in today’s major industries. Each industry has its own specific …

CRIMPING TOOL

CRIMPING TOOL

What is crimping toolA crimping tool is a device used to conjoin two pieces of metal by deforming one or both of them in a way that causes them to hold each other. The result of the tool's work is called a crimp. A good example of crimping is the process of affixing a connector to the end of a cable. For instance, network cables and phone cables are created using a crimping tool (shown below) to join the RJ-45 and RJ-11 connectors to both ends of either phone or Cat 5 cable.How does it work?To u …

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN METAL INERT GAS AND  METAL ACTIVE GAS WELDING

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN METAL INERT GAS AND METAL ACTIVE GAS WELDING

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN METAL INERT GAS AND METAL ACTIVE GAS WELDING Welding is one of the joining processes that can efficiently and economically assemble two or more metallic or non-metallic parts permanently. With the extensive development throughout the years, a large number of such processes has evolved in order to cater the need to join a large variety of materials in innumerable ways. Gas metal arc welding (GMAW) is one such process where metallic materials are joined p …

HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT STICK ELECTRODE  FOR WELDING

HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT STICK ELECTRODE FOR WELDING

HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT STICK ELECTRODE FOR WELDING  Stick welding is a manual arc welding process. It requires a consumable electrode that is coated in flux to lay the weld, and an electric current is used to create an electric arc between the electrode and the metals that are being welded together. The electric current may be either an alternating current or a direct current from a welding power supply. Before choosing an electrode to weld with you need to unde …
