Most people associate the term "thermal management" with heat dissipation in electronic applications, but the concept is not limited to electronics. 

By definition, thermal management (also referred to as temperature control or temperature management) is the use of various temperature monitoring devices, insulation, and cooling methods, to control the overall temperature of components or environments. 

When it comes to heavy equipment, thermal management optimizes heating and cooling systems to improve efficiency and reduce costs. The benefits include decreased

OSHA Requests Input on Proposed Changes to the Silica Standard

OSHA sent a Trade Release out on August 14, 2019, announcing that they are seeking input from industries affected by their Crystalline Silica regulations. Construction companies, rock cories and any other businesses engaged in jackhammering, cutting or braking rock, concrete, masonry and other materials containing crystalline silica are obligated to employ measures to prevent their workers from inhaling the crystalline silica dust. If you are affected by the regulation, this is your chance to have input.

Comments must be submitted by October 14, 2019. Comments and materials may be submitted electronically at http://www.regulations.gov, the Federal e-Rulemaking Portal, or by facsimile or mail. See the Federal Register notice for submission details.

Comparison of Alternative Actuating Systems: Electromechanical vs. Hydraulic vs. Hybrid

Sun, Jun 30, 2019 @ 11:37 PM / by Marek Bobik posted in maintenance, product update, news

0 Comments

Electromechanical (EM) actuating systems have been increasing in popularity for some time. They have replaced pneumatic and hydraulic systems in many light-duty applications. Today,another option (such as the Parker HAS 500) is available: a hybrid of EM and hydraulic actuation systems, which combines the best of both worlds.

Below we will compare EM and hydraulic systems and take a quick look at the new hybrid system.

New OSHA Regulations Regarding Occupational Exposure to RCS

Mon, Aug 28, 2017 @ 04:58 PM / by Elizabeth Burns posted in product update, news, safety

0 Comments

The U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has created a new standard to address the problem of crystalline silica dust control associated with pneumatic jackhammer and breaker operation in the construction industry. The mandated compliance date of the new silica rule has been postponed to September 23, 2017.

In reaction to this new rule, Parker has developed the 7084 Series Twinhammer™, an air-water jackhammer hose which helps companies comply with OSHA's crystalline silica dust control guidelines. Unlike other silica dust suppression systems, Twinhammer™ assemblies are constructed as a unitized, low-maintenance solution that can be easily integrated into construction applications affected by this rule.
