Turbo generators are devices which can utilize the mechanical energy of a fluid to generate electricity. To achieve this, a turbine assembly is attached to a generator, allowing for a number of applications to benefit from high amounts of power. Depending on the application that a turbine assembly is used for, water, wind, and even hot gases may be harnessed by a series of blades to drive a connected generator and benefit hydropower plants, thermal power plants, gas turbines, wind turbines, and more.

For a fuel powered aircraft to perform optimally and achieve heavier-than-air flight, they require an advanced fuel system that is capable of storing, transporting, and combusting fuel efficiently. While many aircraft may vary in their general appearance, functionality, and application, most contain similar parts and systems that enable proper fuel consumption for flight. To best understand how the fuel system works for operating and caring for an aircraft, it is most beneficial to be aware of the most common components that make them up.

A bypass rotameter refers to a system that is made for measuring accurate data regarding the fluid rate of flow in pipelines. Normally it is used to measure larger pipes including those that are eleven and a half inches in diameter or larger. This can be done with a decent bypass flow that is directly proportional to the main flow. Also known as an inference type rotameter is useful because of its accuracy and durability. For a more detailed look at what a bypass rotameter is and what it does, read the article below.

A hydraulic pump can be applied for multiple mechanisms and applications, as they are designed to move sizable amounts of oil via a hydraulic motor or a cylinders. The way that this works is that mechanical energy in the form of torque or speed is converted by the hydraulic pump into a flow pressure, or in other words, into hydrostatic energy. If you have a pump that you can connect to this hydraulic mechanism, you can utilize this hydraulic mechanism to do different types of services including but not limited to lowering something, as well as opening, lifting rotating or closing parts. In this article, we will go over what a hydraulic pump is and more about how it can be applied.

Welding is a process of joining metals through melting parts together with high heat, and it has quickly become of the most popular forms of fusing metals together across many industries. Welding can be very cost efficient, and often produces strong metal bonds that serve well for many applications. While many major parts of an aircraft utilize fasteners for conjoining, welding still proves extremely beneficial to much of the construction. As aircraft welding and manufacturing processes have improved, new techniques have been made to conjoin different materials. In the present, the most popular forms of aircraft welding are gas, electric arc, and electric resistance welding.

As the typical commercial aircraft often operates at altitudes ranging from 31,000 to 38,000 feet, they require an apparatus that is capable of increasing air density to match that of sea level. This is because more dense air provides for better fuel air mixtures, enabling optimal combustion and propulsion for flight. To create denser oxygen, aircraft rely on the compressor.

In any engine, whether it’s an engine for a small automobile or for a large jet aircraft, it’s important to learn the signs of fuel related issues that may be affecting performance. Fuel is an important factor in your engine running efficiently and thus crucial for the performance of your vessel. There are various reasons that could cause problems with your fuel, but below we will briefly discuss the most common problems that occur for people working in aviation. As you’ll read on below, these include hiccups in the engine’s fuel pumps and problems that arise from having faulty fuel.
