  • The Pros And Cons Of Fracking
    Hydraulic fracturing or fracking as it is more commonly known, is, in a nutshell, a procedure for extracting oil or gas from bedrock. The method involves pumping high pressure fluid into drill holes in the rocks to create fractures and this provides an escape route for the gas or oil. Some people are not at all happy about fracking. Read on to see if they are right.
  • A Bit About Hydraulic Jacks
    Hydraulic Jacks are now commonplace in several industries such as the motor industry and the construction industry as well as being popular with individuals. There are, as a general rule 2 types of hydraulic jack and they are bottle jacks and floor jacks. They both work in a similar way but the difference is that the floor jack is arranged in a slightly different way.
  • Aerial Photography And Digital Mapping
    Aerial photography offers clear views of the landscape below which can be very useful for many reasons. They can accurately show alterations in the landscape over set periods of time and there are so many uses for this type of map but what is most unique about them as compared to more traditional types of map, is that they offer a view of the area being represented as a picture and not as something which has been drawn by a cartographer
  • What You Need To Know About Hydraulic Tools
    The use of hydraulic machinery has grown dramatically over the years, and today they used in many different industrial activities. As there is stiff competition in the industry the manufacturers of hydraulic machineries are very keen about producing the very best machines, these being of smart design, well manufactured and built to provide a reliable performance for many years.
  • Testing Hydraulic Machinery
    Whatever type of hydraulic machinery you have, you must look after it correctly to ensure safe working conditions and so that the machinery itself is efficient and in full working order. Often the hoses are the weak spots and these require daily inspection before use. Modern hydraulic hose fittings have been developed to cope with the demands of the work that the machine is intended to do, but care and attention is still needed. Read on for more.
  • How Conveyor Belts Are Used Today
    Conveyor belt systems are normally sturdy belts which are endless and go round in a loop so that they can be employed to move goods and materials from place to place. They are usually electrically powered and are attached to rotors which turn the belt. Common uses for conveyor systems are warehouses, logistics companies, factories and public transport hubs, but there is more to the story than that. Read on for more.
  • Cutting Fluids, Some Useful Information
    Cutting fluids which are used in machine workshops will ensure that the cutting tools will be protected and work properly. Cooling and lubrication are the two most important functions of a good quality cutting oil. See this article for more information on why cutting fluids are so important.
  • Planning a Route For A New Railway - The Process
    Whenever a new railway project is being considered, a survey is very useful both for the construction and also to plan for ongoing servicing. Surveyors will spend time mapping out the best possible routes for the railway and will also consult with engineers on aspects such as gradient, terrain type and practicality of the possible route.
  • The Importance Of Oils In Farming
    Agriculture is an industry where quality definitely matters. Responsible for growing the crops and raising many of the animals we eat, it is important that the agriculture industry maintains high standards at all times and utilises only the very best, most appropriate equipment.With this in mind the oil that is used in the machinery being used is a vital consideration. Read on for more information.
  • How Do Hydraulic Systems Work Then?
    Hydraulic systems such as hydraulic jacks work by Pascal's Law which states that whenever pressure is increased at any point within confined fluid, there is an equal increase in pressure throughout the container. All that means is that where pressure is applied at one point, it is then transferred to another point through the non-compressible fluid.
  • Having The Right Tools For The Job Is Vital
    Whether you are engaging in a small piece of DIY on the weekend or working on a large scale construction project, it is important that you use the right tools for the job. Without the right tools, you could end up with a poor quality job - and you could even be putting yourself at risk since in some cases, using the wrong type of tools for special procedures can be very dangerous.
  • Rubber Gaskets and Seals
    From small domestic uses to large applications in the construction industry and elsewhere, rubber gaskets and seals are massively useful and important. Rubber seals can be used for a wide range of purposes and there are many different types available. This includes high temperature rubber gaskets for processes where heat is an issue, to small rubber gaskets used for household purposes. Read on for more information on the rubber industry.
  • The Importance Of Using The Right Industrial Lifting Equipment
    If you are working in an industrial setting that requires you to move heavy objects, it is absolutely vital that you use the right industrial lifting equipment. There is a wide variety of lifting equipment available for all sorts of jobs, from relatively simple pallets that can make transporting large loads easier, to hydraulic lifts that can take large amounts of weight. Read on to find out more.
  • Using the Right Oil for Industrial Equipment
    When you work with industrial equipment, it's really important that you
    use the right type of oil for the job. If you don't, then your equipment
    won't work properly and you'll end up wasting oil, time and money and
    can even damage your equipment. This article looks at five of the main
    problems that can arise if you don't use the right oil.
