Boosting satellite life using barrier valves

Propellant supply plays a significant role in a satellite’s operational life. Optimising satellite design for longevity is a critical step before any mission. A high-performing solenoid valve can help conserve charged pressure and extend the life of a satellite, by creating an active barrier between the tank and the rest of the feed system.

Data logger puts forestry company at the top of the tree

Thanks to its investment in a Webtec HPM7000 hand-held hydraulic data logger, an installer and maintainer of road-haulage equipment for the forestry sector is now able to collect, store and send critical hydraulic test data more quickly and reliably. The upshot for Shropshire-based Forestry Transport Maintenance Ltd is not just a significant saving in man-hours, but also a more dependable service that provides customers with complete peace of mind.
