Do You Know How Your Gas Engine Works

Humans need food to create the energy to hike Camelback Mountain, go to work, and even to get out of bed in the morning. Just as you need the energy to get moving, so does your vehicle's engine. In fact, the main task of the engine is to create energy from fuel to generate the power to move. This process is referred to as internal combustion as it literally creates small, controlled explosions to create movement. There are several components within the engine that assist in this process. Here's what you need to know to understand how your gas engine works:

The Basics and How They Work

There are five basic components housed in the engine block that contribute to internal combustion: crankshaft, cylinders, connecting rods, pistons, and spark plugs. The cylinder head is the cover and holds two to four valves per cylinder, the intake and exhaust, and the spark plug. Pistons are attached to the crankshaft by the connecting rods and placed into the cylinders. The cylinder holds the piston in place and allows it to move up and down smoothly. There is one cylinder for each piston. The more pistons a vehicle contains, the more power the engine can produce, which is why vehicles with six, eight, or ten-cylinder engines are better for towing than a four-cylinder vehicle. The combustion cycle starts with the piston at the top of the cylinder. A four-stroke process, for example, is based on the total number of combined upward and downward motions or strokes, known as RPMs. The sequence of each cycle is as follows:

• As the piston moves downward, the intake valve allows the mixture of fuel and air in.

• The piston moves up the cylinder, compressing the mixture against the cylinder head.

• The spark plugs create a spark that ignites the mixture creating a small, controlled detonation.

• The reaction from the spark forces the piston in a downward direction. When the piston begins to move upwards again, the exhaust valve opens, allowing the carbon waste to be removed out through the exhaust system.

This cycle will be repeated hundreds of times per minute in order to propel your vehicle down the road. A two-stroke engine works in a similar fashion; however, it completes the cycle with less strokes and utilizes ports to transfer fuel and exhaust as opposed to the valves. Four-stroke engines are preferred over two-stroke engines, as they are more fuel efficient and produce less harmful emissions.

As the pistons move downward, the crankshafts that they are attached to, are forced to move in a circular motion. The timing belt (or chain, depending on your engine) is connected to the crankshaft and collectively, rotate the camshaft. The camshaft controls the opening of the intake and exhaust valves, which requires precise timing. Concurrent to moving in their circular motion, the crankshaft also transfers this motion to the transmission, which eventually turns the wheels.

Because of the extreme heat the internal combustion engines produce, it is very important that the components are cooled and lubricated properly. to pistons, bearings, and valves. Similarly, the cylinder heads that store the intake and exhaust, commonly experience damage as a result of overheating or lack of maintenance. Regularly performed cooling flushes and oil changes help to keep your engine in a like-new state, ensuring each component is properly cooled or lubricated to operate smoothly. Checking your timing belt for cracks, abrasions, or misalignments and replacing it as needed, will also prevent your vehicle from overheating or unexpected breakdowns.

The engine is an essential component in your vehicle and needs to be cared for properly with routine oil changes and other scheduled maintenance. or replacements due to lack of maintenance or minor repairs can get very costly.

Is there a check ball in the manual valve in a 41te 4speed transmission at the valve body?

I am not 100% sure what you mean, but there is no "check ball" in the manual valve. If you are referring to the spring/ball combination that holds the shift lever rooster comb in gear like on a RWD Chrysler transmission, they do not use that method on a 41TE. Chrysler uses a spring steel lever with a roller on it to hold the rooster comb in place. I tried looking on line for a picture of the check ball locations, but came up empty. If you give me a little more info on your problem, I will try to help. Feel free to e-mail me.

Good LuckHow to replace a Hot Water Boiler Relief Valve?I assume you are referring the pressure relief valve on the boiler water vessel, and not the oil line relief valve on the burner. The pressure relief valve is a very important safety device that needs to be properly sized and fitted to boilers and pressure vestals. It is sized and built to relieve as much as, or a percentage more than the BTU output of heat which it's burner can produce. It's inlet size and outlet sizes must never be compromised. It should match what was original on the Mfg.'s specifications on the name Tag of the boiler. (DO NOT TAKE FOR GRANTED THAT THE PRESENT RELIEF IS THE ORIGINAL.) Read the info on the valve tag and compare with the input and output rating on the boiler burner ratings unless your the original owner and know its correct. Because of safety reasons I would recommend.that you allow a professional HV-AC Boiler Technician to change out the relief. He would turn the boiler off, secure the water side and burner side and valves to Isolate your boiler (so as to not drain your system) take the pressure off, drain just a bit and remove the relief ,with the proper wrench. ********Safety note: Most Reliefs are built of soft metal (Brass) or Bronze when fitted out or into the pipe fittings it is very important to use the proper wrench and not place the wrench on the body or any other place on the valve but the proper shoulder made for the proper wrench. When the new valve is installed the the boiler needs to be placed back in original settings of valves and switches. Fill water back on, Vent air from system, fired and tested for leaks.

How Long Do Engine Valves Last?
As stated the main water shutoff is at the meter. It will be an inline valve on the pay side i.e. on the side of the meter with the pipe leading to your home. Typically a rectangle shaped iron knob requiring a special tool or adjustable crescent wrench. If you do not have enough clearance to use the adjustable crescent wrench the special tool can be purchased at almost any type hardware store. The long portion of the rectangle will be pointing in line ( same direction ) as the water pipe. turn on a water facet in your home and have someone watch the water flow. Turn the valve until you are told the water is off. When you repair you leaking facet, install multi turn water vales on both hot & cold facet water lines. When you do not / I do not have multi turn water valves when doing a facet repair I always install them. Eventually you will have shut off valves at every facet. This keeps you from having to shut down water from the whole house when facets need repairing or upgrading. I actually, install multi-turn water valves on every facet in the home the first time I get to do a facet repair. This ends the need of having to turn off the water supply at the meter when servicing facets or toilets1. issue with getting hot water in shower?i am going to take a guess that you have hot water every where else except in the shower, if i am right you most likely have a single valve supply for your shower (some people call it a moen or with all the new companies still a single style valve). there are two types of valves, plastic and brass. well what happens is that the valve stem has little rubber plates that basicly surrounds the stem and as you turn the valve the little rubber plates open and close the openings of the stem including the one that combines the cold and hot water to be able to make warm water. sometimes the rubber plates get worn out or they get out of place over time and i have also seen them gather calcium and other mineral deposits (but that happens on the brass type) well that's all im going to write not knowing if i am on the write track or not. hope this help some. let me know if i was2.

A good rule of thumb is that hold is 40% of boost.By default, I would assume the power is given in static (where the valve will be most of the time) so the 420mA would be the hold current then you would need overhead to be able to activate it properly (800mA).3. How To Adjust A Pressure Reducing Valve: The Easy WayKnowing how to adjust a pressure reducing valve is an important part of any DIYer's toolkit. In this article, we will start from scratch and walk you through the process. We will also tell you everything you need to know about pressure reducing valves and why you might need to adjust yours in the first place. As their name would suggest, pressure reducing valves control the flow of water into your home. Without a pressure reducing valve, this water would travel through your plumbing at a rate unsuitable for residential use. Water heaters in Phoenix are typically capable of handling pressure lower than 80 psi. City officials, meanwhile, consider pressure ranging from 40 to 100 psi acceptable. If the pressure of the water arriving at your home reaches the upper end of that range, it will damage not only your water heater but other appliances and pipes as well. That's where a residential water pressure regulator (another name for 'pressure reducing valve') comes in. Alright, if you are unsatisfied with the general explanation we've provided above, here's a more technical one. A pressure reducing valve is typically close to your water shutoff valve. You will know you are looking at the valve because it will have a gauge nearby. Inside the valve, there are a spring and diaphragm. These two elements interact with incoming water pressure, either contracting or enlarging the hole that your water ultimately passes through. When the water enters the valve at a pressure greater than what it's been set to allow, the diaphragm and spring will contract and reduce the flow. The reverse is also true, however. If the water enters the valve at too low a pressure, the spring and diaphragm will expand and allow the water to exit through a larger hole. Your pressure reducing valve setting will determine what it considers acceptable at both the upper and lower limits of its range. If this does not make total sense to you, do not worry. The exact mechanics and physics of the process confuse even some experienced plumbers. What everyone does know is that the process works. How To Adjust Your Pressure Reducing Valve You will need a wrench of the right size to perform the adjustment. Now that you have a good understanding of how pressure reducing valves work, you should have an idea of what is happening when you do the adjustments. First Things First: Should You Adjust The Pressure? If you are experiencing increased or decreased water pressure due to an abnormality in your municipal water supply's function, adjusting the valve may throw things out of wack when the system returns to normal. If not, it's possible that your valve has gone out of wack somehow and requires adjustment. Also, note that adjusting your pressure reducing valve setting without fully understanding what you are doing can lead to issues. Setting the pressure too high wastes water and can be harmful to your appliances. In extreme cases, your water heater can explode. Appliances like water softeners can also face damage. A pressure reducing valve usually resembles a bell or dome. As mentioned earlier, you will usually see it alongside a gauge. It may be built right into your water meter. In most cases, however, you will find the valve in the form of a separate device that lies the meter within your home's water supply chain. Many valves have a nut, screw, or knob attached to them that allow you to do the actual adjusting. Turning the screw or knob clockwise typically increases the water pressure while turning it counter-clockwise lowers the pressure. This may be counterintuitive since it's the opposite of how faucets work, so make sure you know what direction to turn in order to get your desired pressure. Step #4: Use A Water Gauge To Test Your Pressure Before you make any adjustments to your pressure reducing valve, you need to understand the existing circumstances. While you may know your pressure is too high due to symptoms such as dripping faucets, you want to get an exact reading on the pressure. There are a few places you can attach the gauge to get a good reading. As long as the fixture is downstream of the valve, it's does not particularly matter. Many people attach the gauge to a water heater drain valve or simply a faucet. Step #5: Understand Whether You Have A Closed Or Open System Simply put, an open water heater system allows excess water pressure to make its way back into your cold water supply line and eventually out into the municipal water supply. A closed system does not allow excess pressure to make it back out into the municipal supply. When thermal expansion occurs, this can be dangerous. To avoid this danger, you will have to match the pressure of your regulator to the pressure of your expansion tank. It's not rocket science - but it's good to know before you start making adjustments. Most valves have a locking nut. Once you unscrew this nut, you will be able to turn the adjustment screw, knob, or bolt. Adjust it until the pressure shown on your gauge reaches the desired level. For most residential purposes, that means a pressure below 80 psi. Do not make huge adjustments at once. Make no more than a quarter turn each time before taking a look at the gauge to see what effect you are having. Also, make note of the adjustments you make so that you can revert them if you happen to go too far. Step #7: If Necessary, Adjust Your Thermal Expansion Tank Pressure If you have a closed water heater system, you will also need to adjust the pressure on your thermal expansion tank. To do this properly, you will need an air pressure gauge to test the existing pressure of your expansion tank. Attach the valve directly to the air inlet valve on the tank. Once you've determined the pressure, use a hand pump to raise it to a pressure equal that of your home's water pressure. Do not use an air compressor; doing so risks damage. Step #8: Detach The Water Gauge and Lock The Adjustment Nut Make sure you lock the adjustment nut on your pressure reducing valve. This will prevent the screw from turning easily, which would undo your adjustments. When To Replace Your Pressure Reducing Valve It's recommended that you check your water pressure at least once per year to ensure it's at the desired level. As with most mechanical devices, however, your pressure reducing valve can begin to function improperly with time. You will know this is the case when adjustments to your valve do not result in changes to your water pressure. The pressure may be consistently high regardless of your efforts and you will likely notice issues such as water hammers and dripping faucets. It can be a confusing process for inexperienced DIYers as it requires soldering, plumbing work, and potentially the installation of other equipment to mitigate any issues you come across. Once the valve has been installed professionally, adjusting it on your own is fairly straightforward presuming you have a solid understanding of the steps outlined above. A pressure reducing valve is an important part of your residential water system. It allows you to adjust the pressure of water arriving in your home to a level that is suitable for your appliances. If you conclude that the issue lies with your valve, adjust it using the steps above.

Intake and Exhaust Valves? How Do They Know When to Go Off? What Controls Them? How Do They Work?
The camshaft has lobes, one for each valve. As the camshaft turns the lobes come up and push against a lifter which pushes the valve down into the open position. As the camshaft continues to turn the lobe goes down the valve spring pulls the valve shut. Watching them they look like they are popping open and closed and are more technically known as "Poppet valves." The camshaft is connected to the crankshaft so as the crankshaft turns the camshaft stays "in time" with the pistons so the valves open and close when they should1. Selection of Valves: Valve Selection ProcedureValves are one of the important mechanical (sometimes electro-mechanical) device that helps in controlling the fluid flow through pipes or tubes. Selecting the right kind of economic valve for a specified fluid service requires many considerations. This article provides guidelines for the selection of normal type valves. ( Special type valves are not covered in this article). It should be recognized that Valve Selection is a very extensive and complex subject and it is not possible to select only one type based on this article. The valve selected to work under the same conditions will differ from one client to another. It is necessary to compare the cost and come to an agreement with the client. The selection of valve type requires an understanding of the following. There are two basic principles on which valves are constructed. (1) The first principle is developed in three ways: Moving the stopper by direct thrust on to the orifice seating. This obturating movement is the basis of globe type valves. Rotating the stopper. This is the basis for plug or ball-type valves. Sliding the stopper across the face of the orifice seating. This is the basis of gate type valves. (2) The second principle, squeezing action, is the basis of all diaphragm type valves. These are shown in the following Figure (Fig. 2) (3) Each of the four-valve motivations has its own advantages and disadvantages, as listed in the following table (Fig. 3). For this reason, many modifications and variations of the basic type are made by valve manufacturers. An appraisal of the chief characteristics of the above four basic valve types is given in the following paragraphs The globe valve is used for flow regulation or as a block valve where resistance to flow is not critical and positive closing action is required. They have a tortuous configuration which is typical of the closing method and results in higher resistance to flow compared with other valves. Gate valves are used for on/off operation on hydrocarbon, general process, and utility services for all temperature ranges. They have straight through configurations which are typical of the sliding method, therefore, minimum resistance to flow. Disadvantages are that they have the slowest action of all valves because the gate has to be moved a distance greater than the bore of the valve, which also means that the valve is of necessity bulky in height. Plug valves have a quarter-turn operation, plugs are tapered or parallel plugs, and are suitable for most on-off clean process and utility services, including non-abrasive slurries. They have straight through configurations typical of the sliding method. The disadvantages of the basic plug cock are two-fold. Firstly, its quick action can lead to a water hammer on hydraulic installation when it is closed too rapidly, and secondly, it is difficult to combine tight shut-off with ease of operation. A low torque quarter-turn valve, with a low resistance to flow, suitable for many on-off utility and process services. It has a straight-through configuration typical of the sliding method of closure. A low torque, quarter-turn, rotary action valve with a straight-through flow configuration in which the disc is turned through 90 degrees, close to open position, in axial turning bearings and is used as a control or block valve. It is of compact design and may be obtained with or without flanges and linings. Seating arrangement may be soft (use of body lining, trapped 'O' ring, etc.) or metal to metal. Diaphragm valves have straight-through flow or weir configurations employing the flexing method and may be used for low-pressure chemical plant process on-off or regulating operation of most gases and liquids, e.g. slurries, viscous fluids and fluids which are chemically aggressive. The inherent disadvantage is that the diaphragm has to be made from an elastomeric material, usually either a natural or synthetic rubber, and this limits the application of the valve with respect to both temperature and pressure. Also, because of the stresses induced in the diaphragm, the valve has a shorter working life than other valve types. Typical valve types for various operating functions are given in the following table. Valve selection is dependent on the characteristics of the services as follows. The fluid being handled should be classified as follows, The characteristics and condition of fluids and slurries require careful identification since these are often the most significant factors in selecting the correct type of valve. Clean fluids generally permit a wide choice of valve types, for dirty fluids the choice is often restricted and may require a specific type of valve. The fluid is divided into the following characteristics. Dirty service involves fluids with suspended solids that may seriously impair the performance of the valve unless the correct type of design is selected. This type of service is often of major significance since many valves are very sensitive to the presence of solids. Dirty service is further classified as abrasive or sandy. Abrasive Service is a term used to identify the presence of abrasive particulate found in piping systems and includes the presence of pipe rust, scale, welding slag, sand and grit which are damaging to many valves. These materials can damage seating surfaces and clog working clearances in valves often resulting in excessive force required to operate valves, sticking, jamming, and leakage through the valves. Sandy service is a term identifying severe abrasive and erosive conditions and is used in oilfield production to identify the production of formation sand with reservoir crude oil or gas. Slurries vary widely in nature and concentration of solids, and hard abrasive solids of high concentration can cause severe abrasion, erosion, and clogging of components. Soft, non-abrasive solids can cause clogging of components. In certain chemical processes, polymerization may block the cavities, preventing valve operation. There are many other conditions where solids may be present in the form of hard granules, crystals, soft fibers or powders. The transporting media may be liquid or gas. Air or fluidized bed systems may be used for some particulate. Specialized valves are available for many of these services but development work may sometimes be necessary. Hazardous and flammable material is normally specified in Fire Service Law and/or Client's specifications. Toxic substances such as chlorine, hydrofluoric acid, hydrogen sulfide, CO, phenol, etc.. Highly corrosive fluids such as acids and caustic alkalis. Corrosive service is a term generally used to identify clean or dirty fluids containing corrosive constituents that, depending on concentration, pressure, and temperature, may cause corrosion of metallic components. Corrosive fluids include sulfuric acid, acetic acid, hydrofluoric acid (HFA), wet acid gas (wet CO2), sour gas (wetH2S) and chlorides. Many chemicals are highly corrosive. The choice of suitable corrosion-resistant materials for valve pressure retaining components (boy bonnet) and trim is necessary to avoid corrosion that can impair the integrity or performance of the valve. Viscous service is a term that generally identifies a wide range of dirty or clean fluids with pronounced thickness and adhesive properties that, for the range of operating conditions(pressure, temperature, and flow) may require high operating torques and cause a sluggish response affecting seating. Fluids include high viscosity oils (lube and heavy fuel oil) and non-newtonian fluids e.g. wax crude, gels, and pastes. The choice of valves for viscous service can vary depending on fluid properties. Special attention should be given to check valves where a sluggish response may cause operating difficulties and even hazardous conditions. Fouling or scaling service involve liquids that form a deposit on surfaces. Such deposits may vary widely in nature, with varying hardness, the strength of adhesion and rates of build-up. Valves for these services require careful selection, particularly where thick, hard, strongly adhesive coatings occur. The temperature of the fluid may be a vital factor and in some cases, valves may need tracing or be steam jacketed or of purged design. Solidifying service is a general term used to identify fluids that will change from liquid to solid unless maintained at the correct conditions of temperature, pressure, and flow. It is a term generally associated with fluids such as liquid sulfur and phthalic anhydride where valves of steam jacketed design may be required or heavy fuel oil where valves often require tracing to maintain temperature and operability. Valves are normally allocated a rating according to the maximum operating pressure and temperature or the ratings of the piping system and flanges. The temperature also limits the materials used in the valve construction, particularly the internals, trims, seals, rings or lubricants. These are normally defined in the "Piping Material Specification". Operation and maintenance requirements can influence selection and design. Consideration should be given to: Fire Resistance: There may be a requirement for valves having non-metallic (soft) seating to include 'fire-safe' features so that in the event of the soft seat and/or seals being damaged or destroyed by fire the valve will still be operational and any leakage will be within the acceptable limits laid down by a particular standard or specification. The costs of valve types cannot be simply compared because they vary depending on the countries where they are produced, vendors and the balance of demand and supply. In most cases, clients call for stress relieving, annealing, radiographic inspection, etc.of the valves, which affects the cost of the valves. Therefore, it is necessary to ask the Procurement Division to inquire of suitable vendors regarding these valves, based on the service conditions and the clients' requirements, after they are defined. After a draft of P&ID is issued, the personnel in charge of the preparation of the P&ID should cooperate closely with the piping design engineers in charge, during the in-house review period of the P&ID, and should determine the valve types and prepare piping material specifications in parallel. Generally, gate valves are less expensive than globe valves of the same specification. However, the cost of 1-1/2 or smaller-dia. malleable gate valves are higher than that of the globe valves. Class 150 Gr.304SS TFE-seat 4"or smaller-dia. ball valves are less expensive than gate and globe valves. Class 150 cast iron/malleable iron TFE-seat 2-4 ball valves are less expensive than gate and globe valves whose rating and material are the same. In recent years, domestic vendors have developed and distributed light and inexpensive 2 or smaller wafer-type ball valves, which should be positively adopted in chemical plants. The cost of soft-seat butterfly valves, applied in the range of approximately 10 kg/cm and 80C or lower, is the lowest compared with other types of valves. Metal-seat butterfly valves could be used in the same applicable range as general gate valves if the same material is used for the metal seat. Also, as Class 600 and 900 butterfly valves have been developed and distributed, they should be positively applied to process lines. If the butterfly valves are throttled in use, care should be taken to avoid cavitation.2. reed valves where are they located in a yamaha boat motor?I think usually the carburetor3. what is the gaskit called that covers the valves?Valve cover gasket. sometimes called a head cover gasket

While they are typically installed on pipelines to serve as isolating valves, they should never be used for regulating or control. Gate valves are best used when the minimal amount of pressure loss needs to be applied, as there are no obstructions when it is fully opened and when a free bore is needed. This type of valve is multi-turn, meaning that the operation relies on a threaded stem. The main benefit of this slower operation is a reduction of hydraulic shock caused by fluid changing direction or stopping suddenly. Gate valves can be used in many conditions, including: Gate valves can be found in two different types: wedge and parallel. Wedge shapes utilize two inclined seats and an included gate, while parallel types use a flat gate. The main difference lies in the methods of sealing with parallel gates relying on line force to aid in sealing, and wedge gates relying on torque. Ball valves serve as a good option for shut-off valves. With a quick 90-degree turn, you can easily open and close the valve, reducing both time and the risk of leaking. Ball valves can be found in both full bore and reduced bore varieties, with full bore fitting the diameter of the pipeline, and the reduced bore having a smaller diameter. Full bore ball valves are more highly sought after due in large part to their ability to minimize pressure loss. Ball valves should only be used fully open or fully closed. This type is not recommended for flow regulation, as uneven pressure can cause the valve seat to become malformed over time. If this occurs, the potential for leaks increases. The biggest advantage of using this type of valve is the lowered cost of manufacturing and maintenance. Additionally, they are compact, easy to open and close, and require no lubrication while still maintaining a high level of sealing. Overall, high pressure ball valves are great for applications that require tight and secure shut off capabilities. This can be especially important when working with gases, as any leaks could be potentially hazardous. These valve types are some of the most commonly used throughout many industries. Understanding their differences and their applications will ensure proper operation. If you have any questions or want to know more about what types of valves are best for your operation, do not hesitate to reach out. The sooner you start to better understand your systems, the sooner you can begin running more efficiently overall. Over 60% of our nation's energy is supplied by oil and gas. This makes it crucial for drillers to have the right equipment to ensure rigs and pipelines continue operating at optimal levels. If an improper valve is put in place, the operation could be slowed or even shut down completely, taking a toll on the overall supply delivered from that location. To help better understand the importance of valves, we will be taking a closer look at two important types: gate valves and ball valves.— — — — — —Is it bad for a car to be driven fast?High rpm operation doesnt harm yoru engine, the engine was designed to operate at what you see as "high rpms" There are two primary issues that establish a vehicles redline. One is the valves, if you want them to open and close fast enough, you need realy expensive lightweifght materials, more intricate and heavier springs, or even air valves, these things are not usually found in most cars which are made conomically, so the main reason the redline it wher eit is, is because the valves wont open and close fast enough and the valves will colide with the piston. This of corse means you shouldnot operate the motor aboev the redline for that risk. The second variable, is lubrication, and colling of internal components, this is where your opinion will suddenly change, because in the world of engines, 2500 rpms is nothing, engines can usually maintain adequate lubrication aat aroudn 8k and beyond, high performance motors may be able to endure 16-17k rpms and lubricate efficiently, so for an egineeer to build an angine that cant operate at 2500rpms or even 6k for that matter, woudl be good reason for him to be fired. The valve quality is what make the redline in most cars, not the lubrication potential, so you can go ahead and take it right to redline all you want.
Is 'water Tank with Inlet & Outlet Valves Closed' a Open System, Close System Or Isolated System? Th
Based on your definitions and assuming the tank is closed on the top then the system would be a "closed" system. For it to be an isolated system it would also have to exist in a perfect vacuum with the boundary of the vacuum at the same temperature as the tank. That way there could be no energy transfer by radiation, conduction or convection. As to why this matters I can only guess the question is designed to determine if you understand this aspect of thermodynamics.1. Hot Water Heater leaks through drainage spigot after flushingThose plastic shut off valves on water heater tanks are obviously very cheap and probably low quality as well. There are likely two main reasons that the valve leaks (maybe three). Mitigation information:2. what are the measurements (inches/centimeters) of a trumpet bell and valves?Which trumpet? The reason I ask is because different manufacturers use different dimensions and there is even variations between a manufacturer's models3. Hot water is not hot enough after the water main was replaced. Why?You call the same plumber and tell him that supposed to be so is not good enough. He needs to be sure it IS so. Whenever you mess with the plumbing it knocks loose all kinds of stuff that was in the pipes and is now somewhere else. the crap can be building up and clogging your faucet filters, valves, and shower head. He should have flushed the lines at yours or anybody elses places after chnaging out the pipe(s). What about your bath tub? does it have better water flow and stya hot longer?4. How Can My Valves Operate So Productively Regardless Of A Very High RPM? Pic?The design has alot of do with it. People dont understand that in alot of thing that you buy, the good ones will usually be more expensive. Not because of the name on it, but because quality control and research/design that keeps up on improvements. The hardest thing is adusting the valves on an RX7 rotary engine.5. where are the check valves for the air suspension on a 2000 crown vic?If it's factory air ride they have their own built in air compressor. That's how the suspension can compensate for increased loads, the compressor builds up the air pressure, so no need to add it if you could. If it's down on all four wheels, first check the trunk, they have a switch in there that turns off the air suspension. Not sure on yours, but the earlier Lincolns and Mercs you had to turn off the air suspension before raising the vehicle on a lift. If you did not the bags would extend and pop and you had an instant low rider. Hopefully for you someone just bumped the switch with a bag of groceries and flipped it off. Normally if there is a fault in the air ride it will set off a lamp on the dash. So it seems like that may be your problem. If it's not, check for a blown fuse, but that should set a level ride light on the dash. If it's none of those, plan on a not pretty bill to fix it.6. On an old New York apartment radiator, with two valves, what do I do to only have a little heat?steam comes in through larger pipe at bottom of radiator."leave this valve opened all the way,closing even alittle will cool down steam and turn into water. use only top valve regulatortotadjust temp. the banging you hear is the hot steam hitting the colder water left in radiator,that's why you leave bottom valve opened always,stay warm7. What are water line measurements?Water line measurements can be applied to construction projects involving water main installation. Linear feet of pipe, number and size of shut off valves, pressure reducing valves and fire hydrant valves are all things that need to be measured and accounted for. Granular backfill is usually applied to half way up the pipe and plastic wrapped pipe is common in acidic soil conditions. The bury depth will determine the amount of compacted fill required and to finish the job the trench needs to be seeded and/or sodded.What are water line measurements?
What Would Be the State of Society Without Semiconductors? [closed]
You can do everything with valves or microrelays. But, without semiconductors you cannot do microprocessors. Miniaturization cannot take place so you wont see portable devices. You can integrate and miniaturize valves :We cannot know how much more could thermionic valves be miniaturized or integrated. Transistors provided a easier path and that was followed instead.With this in mind you can build the following:Due to the lower reliability of valved circuits, you would not want to do:You cannot do :Decided to edit my post because of a lot of answers with wrong ideas being posted:You can do computers with vacuum tubes (called valves in UK). The computers can be quite complex. The only difference between a modern computer and a computer made with vacuum tubes is scale. Transistors are made today on nanometer scale while the smallest valve could be made at milimeter scale. This means a lot of things. 1 - The less integration increases path delays amont units. This means that there will be a upper limit on the maximum speed of the computer. And this limit will be much smaller than the limit imposed on current silicon-on-sapphire designs. Integration means that all devices that compose a microprocessor are micrometers away at most. 2 - The use of a heat source to make thermionic emission possible means that valves have a much larger thermal footprint than semiconductors. This means that large designs will present a thermal management challenge. 3 - They use a lot more power than semiconductors.This means that computers will tend to be centralized and used as a kind of utility, just like your phone, your water and your eletricity. What you would have at your home would be probably a dumb terminal made out of simple valved circuits. Multitasking at the central computer means that a lot of people can and do stay connected at the same time. Maybe the generally smaller bandwidth disponible will preclude the development of graphical applications. Etc. In other words, computers will gravitate mainframe era designs.About modems, yes, you can do modems with vacuum tubes. What must be understood about vacuum tubes is that they have the behaviour of a cmos transistor. BUT, they operate at higher voltages and their size is much bigger than the usual CMOS transistor. This means that anything that can be done with CMOS transmistors might be possible using vacuum tubes, minus the miniaturization. You can do ASK/FSK/PSK modems with vacuum tubes. You can do analog to digital converters. etc. You can do precision guidance systems.For one, the missiles and radar on the MiG-25 (and other aircraft of the era) where fully vacuum tube based. Guiding a missile across a radar beam is precision guidance (just not fire and forget, but its not all that hard to build radar homing active guidance missiles with vacuum tubes). About TV. Analog color tv is designed around backward compatibility with analog BW tv. This placed certain constraints on the signal quality. Color information is carried in a phase modulation embedded into the luminance signal of the original BW tv. This means that a limited bandwidth was divided between two signals. Luminance gets most of the bandwidth. But, provided that there was no transistors disponible and people wanted a higher resolution TV standard, you can increase resolution by increasing the bandwidth disponible. This means that the usually 6mhz color tv channels used in analog NTSC tv might be enlarged to 12mhz or more to include a separated color carrier. This alone can increase the perceived resolution of color tvs. Thats not impossible, it was not economical at the time the color tv standards where created. Regarding satellites, most satellites are operated as dumb repeaters. Eletronics inside the satellites are at premium. Space is constrained by thermal management needs and the general cost of launch that is proportional to weight. Being at 300km above ground or more means that repair on-site is impossible or quite costly (see hubble space telescope). This means that eletronics inside the satellites are bare, just enough to repeat signals. You can include beamforming systems on the sats to increase the bandwidth disponible by employing spatial multiplexing, and the algorithmns involved in such beamforming might very well be beyong vacuum tube capabilities, but, non-beamforming sats can be and are still usefull. So, miniaturized valves or not, you can still build satellites. A side not is about a computer capable of guiding the apollo missions. Yes, it can be done. Usually if you cannot treat some problem digitally you can do it in a analog computer. So, provided that you can miniaturize valves to 30mm scale, you can very well build a small computer capable of integrating speeds and other variables needed to space travel. You can beam a couple of tight radio wave beams towards the moon, you can do WW2 era navigation with radio navigation aids. You might be surprised what can be achieved with vacuum tube technology. You might be interested in the battle of beams wich ocurred in WW2. Collossus and other computers of the time might provide a hint how computers would evolve if vacuum tubes where the only option.1. A/C Tech put air into my a/c by not bleeding the manifold guage lines. How bad is it?Most refrigeration guages have check valves in them so when he connected them to your system the vapor that was in his hoses were filled with refrigerant from his last job. Even if they were not he could not cause any problems to your system by just hooking up his guages, unless his hoses were filled with water. Do not worry enjoy the air conditioning.2. What are the symptoms of a slipped belt on a manual transmisson engine?The symptoms would be the same as on an engine with an automatic transmission: the car would not run. At all. Slipping the equivalent of one tooth on the timing belt would mean that valves are down when they should be up (and vice versa), and the result would be a mess that would barely turn over. If the engine just cuts out, then it sounds like some sort of electrical failure in the ignition circuits. Maybe the voltage regulator. But if it coughs and wheezes, that would point to a fuel line problem. My bet is electrical.3. Do I need an engine overhaul?a rebuild kit is not comparable to having your Eng rebuilt. To rebuild an Eng you need to have great machines that rebore the cylinders interior the block and likewise regrind or replace the valve seats and and valves. the greatest and least severe priced approach is to purchase a already rebuilt block from an automobile furnish save . Then take your heads to a automobile gadget save the place they are going to resurface the valves and valve seats and replace the valve courses. then you definately positioned your rebuilt heads on the rebuilt block. then you definately've a clean engine.
I'm Switching to French Horn From Trumpet. What Are the Hardest Things About Playing the French Horn
It's heavier and awkward to carry around. I have a backpack style case. Oiling valves takes more time and effort. Lots of slides to use tuning grease on. More difficult to get water out of the instrument as there is usually only one water key. Keep those slides greased because you'll be pulling them frequently to empty water. Learn your double horn (if you're playing one) fingerings right away. Depending on whether you're playing in an orchestra and you don't know how to transpose, get on learning that skill right away. I am switching to French horn from trumpet. What are the hardest things about playing the French horn?1. Can I use a co2 regulator with sf6?It depends on the size of your canister. If a lecture bottle, then any number of valves that are corrosion resistant will work. But if you are referring to a cylinder, with a pressure regulator, then looking in any catalog from a gas supplier will give you the regulator number. That refers to the threads of the cylinder. So if the number matches, then you can. But if the number does not, you can not . You refer to the CGA number. CO2 uses a CGA C10. SF6 uses a CGA 590. So you can not .2. High-Speed Solenoid Valves Control Hydraulic Pump DisplacementMuch of the mobile equipment in use today operates with conventional hydraulic pumps controlled by changing the stroke of pistons with a swashplate mechanism. Because swashplate position is not easily controlled, energy is lost through volumetric and mechanical inefficiencies. A new technology, the Digital Displacement Pump overcomes these limitations by using multiple radial cylinders that are enabled and disabled in real time with ultra-fast mechatronic valves controlled by an embedded computer. Developed by Artemis Intelligent Power Ltd., Loanhead, Scotland, the technology has shown a substantial energy savings by making it practical to replace mechanical gearboxes with hydraulic transmissions. Benefits include lower energy usage, typically less than one-third that of a conventional axial-piston pump, quicker response times, and elimination of high-frequency noise. When applied to an excavator, for example, the technology has demonstrated fuel savings of up to 20%, as well as an increase in productivity of nearly 30%. The Digital Displacement Pump (DDP) is a radial-piston pump with cylinders stroked by a cam ring. Each cylinder can be turned on and off individually, and each has its own control system: solenoid-operated poppet valve, a check valve, and a piston position sensor. When configured as a Digital Displacement Pump Motor (DDPM), each piston has two solenoids, and the unit can be used as a pump or a motor. These solenoids can be activated or deactivated in as little as 30 msec to limit oil flow through each cylinder as the load requires. In essence, it is a multi-step transmission with each step capable of varying its output flow. The decision to activate or deactivate a given cylinder is made continually with each shaft revolution to meet the pressure demand set in the pump controller. The number, orientation, and size of the pistons in use can vary widely. A common configuration uses 12 cylinders arranged in three groups of four, although the manufacturer has built a unit with 68 pistons for a wind turbine application. This graph compares efficiency of the Digital Displacement Pump with a variable-displacement axial-piston pump at two different speeds. The DDP and DDPM are designed to be computer-controlled. To take full advantage of the technology, it is critical to adjust the timing of the solenoids based on signals from the piston position sensors and feedback from the work site. With the shaft rotating, if the load does not require flow, all cylinders are isolated from any line pressure and incur minimal losses. From the idle state, full flow can be achieved within 30 msec, independent of working pressure. In addition, a DDP can be powered with an induction motor and a soft starter, reducing initial cost when compared to using a variable-speed motor used with an axial-piston pump. The simplified circuit diagrams of a six-piston pump show how the technology works. As the cam rotates, the pistons are alternately drawn in and pushed out. A check valve separates the high- and low-pressure areas of the pump, and a solenoid valve opens and closes the path from the low-pressure area. This allows for treating each pump cylinder as an individual source. When no solenoid valves are energized, the low-pressure source remains available to the piston during the complete revolution of the cam. The piston simply cycles fluid out and back in to the low-pressure core. Because it is effectively taken out of the circuit, it requires very little energy. In the event of electrical power failure, the DDP fails to a no-flow, low-pressure condition. When a solenoid valve is energized, the piston draws from the low-pressure core and then exhausts into the high-pressure core. As an example of how the technology works, if each of the six pistons has a displacement of 0.61 in3 (10 cm3), total displacement would be 3.7 in3 (60 cc). At 1,800 rpm, the flow potential would be 28.5 gpm (108 lpm). As each piston is put in service when its control solenoid is energized, the potential flow is increased by 4.8 gpm (18 lpm). If part of a work cycle requires only 14.3 gpm (54 lpm), only three of the solenoids can be energized strategically to produce the required output. Simplified diagram of a six-piston Digital Displacement Pump with solenoids energized in full-flow condition. Energizing the solenoids also can be timed differently so that only a portion of the piston displacement is sent to the high-pressure core. Using the same six-piston pump example, if the flow demand is 16.6 gpm (63 lpm), the displacement of 3 pistons would be required. This could be accomplished by energizing three solenoids to put three pistons in service and one solenoid to close the path to the low-pressure side as the piston reached half stroke. This would cause half of the piston's displacement to enter the pressure stream. Another approach would be to provide an average flow per minute by energizing all the solenoids for 1,044 revolutions and then leaving them de-energized for 756 revolutions. If these approaches cause unwanted power ripples, the same flow could be achieved by timing each of the six solenoids to cause the pistons to displace only 5.8 cc per cycle by turning them on at 58% of the stroke. The DDP can mimic an infinitely variable displacement pump closely without maintaining a constant core pressure. The individual pistons can be at inlet pressure regardless of the pressure at the outlet of the pump. In addition, the output of each piston can be isolated so the pump can provide flow to multiple circuits. In the example, six separate functions could be fed from one single DDP, each with varying flow up to 4.8 gpm (18 lpm).3. Diesel & Petrol - what's the difference? CPS Fuels Information SheetDiesel and unleaded petrol are both hydrocarbon mineral fuels derived from crude oil extracted from the earth by drilling and pumping. Varoius liquid fuels (Diesel, Gas Oil, Heating Oil & Petrol), gasses, plus other useful hydrocardon derivatives, are all refined from crude oil by a process of boiling and condensation known as fractional distillation. At the refinery distillation columns are used to separate the crude oil into different molecules and substances, at different temperatures. Diesel is refined at a higher temperature than petrol and has a certain viscosity according to the different surrounding temperatures (unlike petrol). Diesel also has denser and less explosive' properties, making it more suitable for heating applications, as well as for fuelling the internal combustion engines of vehicles. The fuels in the Diesel range are known as middle distillates, whereas Petrol, is known as coming from the Petroleum spirit range. Each fuel requires a different combustion process in order for the fuel to burn and the engine to operate. They are similar but there are key differences to note. The most obvious difference is that for the pistons to be powered in an engine, they depend upon different ignition systems. The petrol engine needs a spark to ignite the vapour and air mixture produced by the carburettor when it is compressed in the combustion chamber. A series of four piston strokes completes the cycle. Initially, the vaporised fuel and air is drawn into the combustion chamber via an open intake valve; the piston then compresses the mixture as it moves up the chamber and at the correct moment a plug produces a high voltage spark that explodes the gas and forces the piston back down. As the piston moves back up the chamber the intake valve is shut and an exhaust valve opened by way of a connecting cam-shaft operating the valves timing and allowing the spent gasses to be expelled. Finally, the exhaust valve shuts and the intake valve opens again allowing the fuel mixture back into the chamber as the piston moves downward, completing the cycle. There are normally four pistons fitted on a crankshaft so that they complement each other in performing and continuing each of the four functions. The vertical motion of the pistons translate mechanically through a connecting crank and drive shaft to the wheels, propelling the vehicle forwards or backwards depending on gear selection. The diesel engine generally has a similar four stroke/four piston configuration as the petrol engine, except it does not have a sparking ignition system in order to motivate the pistons, but instead relies initially on an electrically heated glow-plug to ignite the fuel injected into the combustion chamber when the engine is cold and first being started. Similarly to the petrol engine, valves connected to a cam-shaft operate in synchronisation with the pistons' four stroke timing. Diesel engines are usually considered more efficient on fuel economy than petrol engines, and more robust. They are more difficult to stall as they operate at lower rpm (the revolutions of the shaft per minute) and have higher torque making them good at towing and suitable as work vehicles, such as tractors. Torque is a little like the mechanical advantage you exert through leverage, however, this does not ordinarily translate into speed. Petrol cars tend to have more power and higher rpm, equating to faster speed, more wear and tear on the engine, and less fuel economy. CPS Fuels can supply bulk diesel locally to your own fuel station, or nationally using the extensive Keyfuels fuel card bunker network to your vehicles on the road.
All About Fire Safety Valves
One of the more recent developments in industrial tools to prevent fire is the introduction of fire safety valves. These valves are designed to prevent a fire from spreading if the fuel valve gets damaged or causes a leakage. A valve is a device that adjusts, directs, or controls the flow of a fluid by opening, closing, or partially blocking various passageways. Valves are technically a type of fitting but are usually discussed separately. In an open valve, fluid flows from higher pressure to lower pressure. The simplest kind of valve is simply a freely hinged flap that drops to obstruct flow one way but is pushed open by fluid flowing the opposite way. This ancient valve is called a check valve, as it stops or "checks" the flow in one direction. Modern valves may regulate pressure or flow downstream and operate on sophisticated automation systems. Valves have industrial applications for controlling processes, residential uses such managing water flow to dish and clothes washers and taps in the home. They are found in almost every industrial process, including mining, water and sewage processing, power generation, food manufacturing, processing of oil, gas and petroleum, chemical and plastic manufacturing, and many other fields. Fire-safe valves are spring-loaded valves that are thermally actuated. In case of fire, they close automatically and stop the fuel flow. The fuel flow from the crankcase of the engine and the reserve oil supply gets hindered, thus minimizing the chances of leakage. Spring-loaded valves help with preventing the flow of fuel such as oil, gas, petrol, and other combustibles, and are useful and effective against any damage. The benefits of using fire-safe valves in a system are the protection of human life, lower insurance rates, and the protection of equipment and the building. It is because of these benefits that the use of these valves is highly recommended and appreciated. These days, many companies offer an extensive range of fire-safety valves to provide protection even in high temperature and high-pressure conditions. A fire safety valve aims to keep ignitable fluids away from a flame. These valves close when exposed to heat, separating a flammable liquid from the heat source. They close in the midst of overheating of the pipeline, brought on by fire or similar events. The obligation to use fire safety valves is subject to any tenets, regulations, and laws concerning the unique methodology, plant, pipeline, or vessel. Fire-safe ball valves use a combination of a floating ball, graphoil seals, and metal-to-metal seating to provide tight shut-off while preventing external stem leakage. In normal working conditions, the ball rests against two seats, ensuring bubble-tight closure. When the valve is exposed to a temperature above the limits the seats can withstand (for example, 450F), the seats become deformed and are subject to extrusion. When the seats have been completely destroyed, the ball in the valve will come to rest firmly against the end cap, producing a metal to metal closing. Stem seals, which have high temperature-resistant properties, further restrict leakage in conjunction with a blow-out proof anti-static stem, so that the flammable fluid stays separate from the heat source that may ignite it. A fire-safe valve may also be made up of four main mechanisms: a spring pack, a trigger assembly, mounting hardware, and a fusible link. The components work in unison to close the valve should a fire be detected within a facility. The fusible link is the key part of the assembly. It keeps the valve open by maintaining tension on a spring pack through the trigger assembly. When a fire breaks out, the fusible link separates once it is heated to a certain high temperature, which releases the spring pack and allows it to close the valve. A fire-safety valve with fusible links has a primary drop-tight seat, usually made of TFE, along with a second seat made of metal for isolation in a fire. The secondary seat also has graphite seals for further protection. This means that the shut-off valves can be paired with any quarter-turn ball valve, butterfly valve, or plug valve.

CAN Bus: Nodes powered by different Potential SourcesYou have two options:Either way, you need a dedicated signal ground CAN_GND, as specified by the ISO standard. This is particularly important in automotive and industrial applications where motors, coils or valves etc are present.Also note that the tolerated absolute maximum potential difference on the CANH/CANL pins varies quite a lot depending on CAN transceiver. In any event, your car ground potential will be nowhere near the household mains or laptop battery grounds, so if you plan to troubleshoot your CAN bus at all - which involves a PC - you need a signal ground for that alone2. Need a higher flow rate kitchen faucet?If everything you say is true and correct, I would say that you have a very unusual problem. Before you bother doing anything else, I would suggest that you go down to a good, local, & reputable plumbing shop in your area. Explain your problem to them and see what they say. FAUCETS them selves are typically not the cause of the problems that you are experiencing. Usually it is the, areators, faucet cartridges, supply lines or valves being the problem due to corrosion and/or grit & debris build-up in them. Anyway, good luck3. How to Know When the Valve Guides Are Worn OutHow to Know When the Valve Guides Are Worn Out Valve guides are integral to the proper operation of engines. The guides help regulate the air intake and compression by keeping valves in place as the engine works. Guides also cool down the valves, with the guide absorbing about one-quarter of the heat generated. By constantly accommodating the valve stems as they thrust in and out with great friction, the guides are susceptible to eventually wearing out. This can cause of bevy of problems. There are several ways to determine if your vehicle's valve guides are worn out. Observe your car when you accelerate and brake. If you see a billow of smoke from the exhaust pipe -- especially any blue smoke, which is caused by burning oil -- it is a sign that the valve guides are worn. Time how long it takes the car to consume a new quart of engine oil. Worn valve guides cause a much faster oil consumption rate. Open the hood, and locate the valve guides, using the owner's manual for guidance. Move the valve into the guide, and try to jiggle it from side to side. Any movement in the guide indicates that the valve guide has corroded. Measure the inside circumference of the valve guide, and the outer circumference of the valve with a gauge set. Compare the data with the optimum measurements listed in the owner's manual to test whether the valve guides are worn. Locate the spark plugs based on information in the owner's manual, and check for signs of gray or brown debris. If the ash appears on only one side of the spark plug, it could be a sign of worn valve guides. Buy a gauge set specifically made to measure valve guides at an auto parts store for the most accurate data. Do not attempt to handle or measure valve guides unless the engine is completely cool.
