Depending on whether your application requires the bonding of separate materials or to block the flow of gasses or liquids, it is crucial to use the proper adhesive or sealant. While adhesives bond two separate substrates together by chemically overcoming the forces of their separation, sealants block fluid flow through a surface, gap, or joint by filling in the space between the separate substrates. These two substances have many differences in their form and function which will be explored further in the following blog.

When systems take advantage of pneumatic or hydraulic technology for basic operations, it is crucial that pressure levels are able to be monitored and tracked to ensure that pressures are within optimal ranges or levels. Pneumatic and hydraulic pressure technology can be found in anything from vehicle braking systems to hydraulic presses, and incorrect pressure levels can potentially raise the risk of flammability, leaks, accidents, and other such dangerous incidents. As such, pressure sensors are a common element that may either monitor or control pressure levels, and we will discuss them in brief detail so that you may understand them better.

Inductors are two-terminal components that are utilized for filtering, timing, and power electronics applications. They store energy in the form of magnetic fields while current is flowing. When an electromotive force is induced, inductors also have the ability to oppose a change in current. An inductor can also work like an open circuit for AC signals and as a short circuit for DC signals. It is important to note that the unit of inductance is Henry (H).
