Industries that use pumps, seals and pipes will also use valves and actuators in their systems. This key reference provides anyone who designs, uses, specifies or maintains valves and valve systems with all of the critical design, specification, performance and operational information they need for the job in hand. Brian Nesbitt is a well-known consultant with a considerable publishing record. A lifetime of experience backs up the huge amount of practical detail in this volume.* Valves and actuators are widely used across industry and this dedicated reference provides all the information plant designers, specifiers or those involved with maintenance require
* Practical approach backed up with technical detail and engineering know-how makes this the ideal single volume reference
* Compares and contracts valve and actuator types to ensure the right equipment is chosen for the right application and properly maintained
Partial sterling combustion engine design2008-08-28 18:29:38 by wuzawuzzal
The main idea is to have the cylinders charge and detonate fuel in an computer controlled automated way as to reduce the amount of combustion cycles that would other wise be necessary to keep the engine running.
The piston is directly connected to a pneumatic actuator that extends and retracts to either draw in fresh fuel or expel exhaust gases. A charge is loaded and valves are operated pneumatically to open a path to the drive train or to exhaust spent fuel. A pressure relief valve is installed to prevent over pressure and also to direct excess cylinder pressure to a pressure tank (not shown) to be used to power actuators
67 T-Bird Vacuum System2009-02-12 20:04:56 by 67-bird
I am restoring a 67 bird where almost everything is operated by vacuum lines including the power door locks. I have replaced all vacuum hoses and replaced the door lock actuators with new old stock and also replaced the locking and unlocking vacuum valves (three times). Is there anyone out there who has experience with the 67 Thunderbirds equiped with vacuum operated door locks? If so do you have any suggestions?
