All You Need to Know About Boiler Welding

Boiler welding involves metalworking. For this reason, welders need special certification to cut, repair, and combine metal parts. Similar to boiler making, boiler welding is one career path for welders. They are responsible to bond different parts of metal. Moreover, they are trained to melt different metals and put them together. Welding is necessary for […]

Mass Flow Meters: What is It and How Does It Work?

Mass Flow Meters: What is It and How Does It Work?

Introduction Before, the mass flow was usually or normally computed from the outputs of a densitometer and a volumetric flow meter. Also, density was either calculated or directly measured using the outputs of pressure transmitters and process temperatures. These measuring devices were not extremely precise or error-free, due to the relationship between the temperature or […]

Hydroponic systems and their types

Hydroponic systems and their types

Hydroponics is the agricultural method of cultivating plants using only water, supplements, and a growing medium. The word hydroponics originates from “hydro,” which means water, and “ponos,” which means work, this technique of agriculture does not use soil. From plant science, there are no differences between plants that grow in soil medium and plants that […]

Why Stirling engines are not widely used for producing energy?

Why Stirling engines are not widely used for producing energy?

Introduction to energy production Energy production Energy production or electricity generation is the process of generating electricity (energy). This process involves converting a primary source of energy such as mechanical, thermal, chemical or any other type of energy into electrical energy. Energy producing systems are widely used in different sectors and industries such as hospitals, […]

How Stirling engines work

How Stirling engines work

Introduction Nowadays, engines are used in many products. Since the industrial revolution (from the late 1700s to the mid-1800s) steam engines ECE (External Combustion Engine) was the only widely used engine. Stem engine was the first engine invented back in 1698 by an Englishman named Thomas Savery.  Later, Robert Stirling developed and patented the Stirling […]
