  • Torque about improving handling accuracy

    Dry bulk handling is en route to becoming a precision science with a level of control previously undreamt of, thanks to 20 years of research and development into digital non-contact torque monitoring. Dry bulk handling is following many other industrial processes that have been redeveloped from a ‘black art’ to a highly accurate and controlled procedure. A generation ago much of industry was in ...

  • INTELLIGENT EXTRUDER PLANS ITS OWN GROWTH

    A bench top extruder developed at Bradford University is able to collect data about its own operation and to determine a wide range of characteristics of the material with which it is working. Most of the intelligence is provided via a digital TorqSense torque sensor, which uniquely collects data via a radio signal rather than being hard wired to the extruder, and passes it onto a computer for ...

  • Study: Plastic Debris Widespread on Ocean Surface

    Plastic junk is floating widely on the world's oceans, but there's less of it than expected, a study says. Such ocean pollution has drawn attention in recent years because of its potential harm to fish and other wildlife. The new work drew on results from an around-the-world cruise by a research ship that towed a mesh net at 141 sites, as well as other studies. Researchers estimated the total ...
