Michell Bearings‘ Unique Capability a Success for Nuclear Station Blackout

In what is thought to be one of the world’s first successful bearing run downs, the test demonstrated the bearing’s ability to survive a station blackout condition without the use of an externally powered high pressure oil injection system. Failure of the on-site power generators concurrent with the loss of offsite power ultimately results in Read more about Michell Bearings‘ Unique Capability a Success for Nuclear Station Blackout[…]

GEMÜ Tugela double-eccentric butterfly valve meets stricter temperature and pressure requirements

The GEMÜ Tugela butterfly valve is particularly distinguished by its double-eccentric construction, which is why it is also designated as a high-performance butterfly valve and suitable for pressures up to 40 bar or temperatures up to 230 °C. The butterfly disc separates directly from the sealing seat when it opens, which reduces wear and thus increases service Read more about GEMÜ Tugela double-eccentric butterfly valve meets stricter temperature and pressure requirements[…]
