Controlling the pressure rating is often important in ensuring a system can function properly. The required pressure rating of different systems will vary based on the system type and the industry or application it is used in. For example, the pressure requirements of an aircraft will differ greatly from those of an automobile engine. To maintain pressure, many systems use a pressure gauge, which can be set to and maintain a desired pressure. In this blog, we will discuss the six most common types of pressure gauges.
Keeping a jet engine running as efficiently as possible is critical. An efficient engine is safer, works better, and uses less fuel to run. As such, operators are always looking for ways to maximize the efficiency of their jet engine. One such way is compressor cleaning.
If you’ve been on an airplane and were lucky enough to get a window seat, you have probably looked at the window and asked yourself a few questions about it. For example, you may have wondered how aircraft windows work, what they are made of, and what that small hole at the window’s base is. In this blog, we will answer all three of those questions.
When investing in drone technology for either personal use or for a specific organization or industry, it can be useful to procure various accessories. As one of the most essential accessories for drone aircraft, anti-collision lights serve to increase flight safety and ensure compliance with drone flight laws. As there are various types of lighting for drones, understanding which ones are the most useful and how to meet flight requirements is crucial for any drone aircraft owner or operator.
Gears are an imperative part of many motors and machines, where they do things like increase torque output by providing gear reduction and alter the direction of rotation like in automotive vehicles. They are used for far more applications than just these two, and therefore come in many different types. The most common gear types are spur, helical, bevel, rack, and worm. In this blog we will discuss each type and how they differ from one another.
A gear is a device made of toothed wheels that transfer mechanical power between two elements. They are found throughout machines used for industrial processes, such as production lines in drive systems. However, they are also used in a wide range of sectors such as mining, aerospace, pharmaceuticals, textiles, and more. This blog will focus specifically on a certain type of gear: the bevel gear.
Bevel gears are gears that use two cone-shaped, toothed wheels to transfer power between axes cut within the same space. The teeth of a bevel gear can be either straight or spiraled, also known as a conical helix. Different types of gears are commonly classified based on their tooth width, the tooth face width, or the center’s circular pitch. There are four classifications of bevel gears: helical bevel gears, hypoid gears, straight bevel gears, and spiral bevel gears.
When operating an aircraft in a storm, rain can present a great obstruction that mitigates a pilot’s ability to fly through visual means. When taxiing on the airway, taking off, or landing, having clear visuals from the cockpit is crucial for safety so as to avoid any collisions. As a result, various rain-removal systems are put in place to remove fluids from the windshield, and each type presents its various advantages and drawbacks. In general, the most commonly used types of rain removal systems include windshield wipers, chemical rain repellent, hydrophobic seal coatings, and pneumatic rain removal systems.
When performing inspections and maintenance on an aircraft, utilizing a jack is crucial for safety in order to avoid accidents, damages, and injuries. Depending on the size and model of the aircraft being worked on, there are various hydraulic jack types that may be used such as bipod, tripod, quadropod, and axle aircraft jacks. In general, tripod and axle jacks prove to be the most widely used, due in part to their offered benefits and capabilities. In this blog, we will discuss the tripod and axle aircraft jack, as well as the aircraft jack labeling system and inspection process to help you have a better understanding of jacks.
Landing gear safety systems are crucial in ensuring the reliable operation of landing gear. As such, there are many different landing gear safety devices, mostly those that prevent the gear from retracting or collapsing while in use. Other devices do things such as communicate the position of each individual landing gear to the pilot. There are four primary landing gear system safety devices. They are the landing gear safety switch, ground locks, landing gear position indicators, and nose wheel centering. This blog will explain each of them, their role, and how they work.
The air inlet of an aircraft, also known as an intake, is an opening or structure on the body of a plane or jet that allows for air to enter into systems. As jet engines and supersonic speed aircraft were realized and improved upon, such air entrances became a required design to allow for the correct amount of air to flow into the engine. In this blog, we will discuss some of the various inlets that may be present on an aircraft, as well as how they benefit flight operations.
