Why is Heat Shrink Tubing Used for Electrical Applications?

1 min read

If you’re an electrician, you probably know what heat shrink tubing is. If not, this is the blog post for you. Heat shrink tubing, in a nutshell, is a shrinkable tube that can be made out of some some sort of plastic or a fluoropolymer. Fluoropolymers are flurocarbon-based polymers. If you are looking for the best material out there for strength, UV resistance, and chemical inertness, fluoropolymers are the way to go. Heat shrink tubing can be made out of nylon as well.

Common Uses of Fluoropolymer Tubing

1 min read

Fluoropolymer tubing is a combination of FEP tubing and PTFE tubing, making it one of the most popular tubes in various industries. Because the tubing combines two types of tubes into one, contractors and other users can get the benefits of both tubes when using a single tube. This tubing is preferred when working on projects with high temperatures and chemical inertness. This type of tubing is also preferred to stainless steel tubing.

What Is a Coil Heat Exchanger Used for?

1 min read

Right now, we are in the middle of summer, which means many of us have our air conditioners pumping pretty hard. All air conditioners have coil heat exchangers. So do furnaces, but for the opposite reason. For the purposes of this post, we are going to take a second and discuss what heat exchangers are and why they are an important part of your life. We guarantee that you would know it if the heat exchanger in your AC unit stopped working. We hear it’s going to be pretty humid and hot up to the Fourth of July in many parts of the country this year.

What is Spectroscopy?

1 min read

In a nutshell, spectroscopy is a scientific measurement technique that involves looking at the dispersion of an object’s light into its component colors. Once an object’s light can be assessed and quantified, astronomers can gain a better understanding of the physical properties of that object, including its temperature and mass.
