Perfecting Compressor Refrigerant-Oil Balance

Boston - Too much lubricant and the compressor does not cool properly; but too much refrigerant and the compressor's life is shortened by bearing wear," according to a senior engineer at a major North American compressor manufacturer. "We use Cambridge viscometers to help find the right balance for each of our products. The ability to mount these viscometers directly in our test compressors...

Controlling Viscosity for Uniform Fine Wire Coating

Boston-How do you control coating on wire that is finer than a human hair? This is the challenge faced by manufacturers of 30 - 300 micron diameter wire known as winding wire, magnet wire or fine wire. These wires are key components in electric motors, transformers and electric coils required in appliances, cars and other powered devices. Viscosity control is critical for enamel quality The...
