Children have amused themselves for centuries by shuffling their feet across a carpet and touching a doorknob or playmate for a quick zap. As entertaining as these events may be, static electricity commands respect. In an industrial hose,...Read More
Air is used as an energy source in almost every type of industry. It is an extremely efficient form of energy and is relatively inexpensive. It is easy to regulate and, when used with the proper equipment, is easy to clean and can be delivered relatively free of moisture, if necessary.
