We’re living in a material world

We’re living in a material world
Drilling for crude oil, as well as the production, processing, storage and transportation of energy, inflicts huge stresses and corrosion on the materials used. Acid-bearing fluids can eat into pipelines, sulphur and hydrogen sulphide can induce corrosion and temperatures higher than 1,100°F can damage the toughest steel. Just as oil and gas workers must adapt to hostile environments, so must the materials used in their equipment. Here, Martin Phillip, Product Manager at Fluenta explains.

GRP linear guides are lightweight and cost effective

GRP linear guides are lightweight and cost effective
Expanding its drylin W modular, linear guide system igus has added rails made of glass-fibre reinforced plastic (GRP). The GRP material is a lightweight alternative to aluminium yet more cost-efficient than carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) linear guides. The automotive industry is one example where the cost and weight of the design are both important considerations, and the new drylin W GRP rail is suitable in this case.
