Engineer’s Scrapers: Comparing the Different Types of Tools

The scraper is an essential and highly beneficial engineering tool in the manufacturing process of metal products. This is a finishing implement which eliminates high or rough spots from the machined surfaces. Consequently, the finished metal product will have true flat services for better performance. The engineer's scraper is particularly useful for metal components which will connect with other surfaces. This is because high spots on such a surface will cause abrasion and generate friction.

Four Ways to Prevent Powder Coating Contamination During Its Application

A powder coating finish is one of the most preferred finishes by manufacturers as well as consumers mainly due to its high quality, resistance to corrosion and durability. Irrespective of the above qualities, a powder coating finish is prone to getting defects that are a result of contamination by various environmental conditions as well as elements present in the coating booth. It is essential to note that the contamination can take place anywhere in between the preparation of the powder coating to its application on a product. Read More 

Cooling Tower: Promoting Optimal Long-Term Performance

Cooling towers are ideal devices for use in diverse industrial and commercial cooling applications.
