Hydraulic equipment and tools function through the use of enclosed fluids placed under pressure, allowing for a great amount of force to be transferred equally and with ease. As pressure is paramount to standard operations, such systems require the use of pressure gauge parts that enable one to monitor such values. Hydraulic pressure gauge parts are crucial to the safe and efficient operations of countless systems, tools, and equipment pieces, assisting operators in preventing over- or under-pressure conditions that may present hazards to individuals or equipment.

Within an HVAC system or device involving the flow of air, it can be very beneficial to have control over the free flow of air for various processes. Dampers and louvres are two common components that are found within such systems, both of which permit management over airflow for different purposes. Despite sharing similarities in their use of exterior frames, horizontal blades, and wall placement, each component plays a different role in the overall operations of ventilation systems. In this blog, we will provide a brief overview of dampers and louvres, allowing you to better understand the purposes they serve for HVAC systems and similar apparatuses as well as how they differ from one another.

It is safe to say that without proper lubrication, there is no doubt that an engine, or any other piece of machinery, can expire quickly. As machines are constantly in motion to produce a desired outcome, objects within an engine that are perpetually in motion or prone to frequent abuse require lubrication. Ranging in varying chemical compounds and viscosity levels, choosing the right type of lubricant can help ensure superior part performance, longevity, and reliability.

Used for a variety of applications that range from transportation to power tools, industrial machinery, toys, and more, bearings are an overlooked, yet common, component used in our daily lives. Carrying a load while utilizing rolling elements, reducing friction, and providing tighter suspension for various gears, bearing assemblies encompass compact mechanical moving elements that hold interlocking gears together by force or mechanical suspension. Varying bearing types include gear bearings, ball bearings, ball thrust bearings, roller thrust bearings, tapered roller bearings, and more.

A fuse is a common electrical component that serves as an overcurrent protection device for electrical circuits. Fuses are essential safety devices that have long served electrical engineering, and there are many types and designs that have come about over the years to accommodate various current and voltage ratings, response times, and breaking capacities. Due to their use in protecting sensitive electronic components from the dangers of overload conditions, having an understanding of a fuse’s functionality can be useful when procuring and replacing such items.

Despite being simple parts, belts have an integral role in the operation of an engine. In simplest terms, a belt powers a part or series of parts within the engine. A given engine can have several belts, commonly depending on the engine’s age and its design. In this blog, we will discuss the four most common engine belts: the timing belt, fan belt, alternator belt, and serpentine belt.

Air gauges are measuring devices that use air nozzles to sense a surface to be measured. Using this technique, air is passed to one or more sensing nozzles and the resulting flow is measured by the air gauge readout calibrated to display linear dimensions. Air gauging was introduced in the 1940s and has since gained widespread popularity as a precise method of measuring internal and external diameters. In very tight tolerances, air gauging is a proven inspection tool that provides faster, more accurate, and more convenient measurements.

An aircraft starter is a device used to assist in the process of starting up an aircraft engine. Modern aircraft starters consist of a high torque electric motor, reduction gear, and some means of automatically engaging and disengaging from the engine. The most common type of starter, found on all types of light and medium aircraft, utilizes a wound electric motor and engagement system like a bendix drive. The reduction gear allows the start to turn much faster than the engine and create sufficient torque in order to crank the engine.
