Embracing the Industrial IoT to Advance High-Pressure Manufacturing

The “Internet of Things (IoT)” is a concept that has gained considerable exposure over the past decade, becoming increasingly embedded in household objects in order to more easily enable the sending and receiving of data. The IoT has already significantly changed the way that we live and work (Amazon’s Alexa, anyone?).

A Quiet Change in Compression Technology has Arrived

When it comes to workplace noise levels, how loud is too loud? Ear-damaging workplace noise is a widespread problem that impacts employees in many lines of work. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Organization (OSHA), at least 22 million workers are exposed to potentially damaging noise every year. While noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is 100% preventable, many employers don’t take the right precautions to keep their employees safe.

To provide workers with more protection from NIHL, OSHA began penalizing organizations. In 2017 alone, employers were required to pay $1.5 million in penalties for not protecting their employees from noise. A recent estimate from OSHA reveals that that an estimated $242 million is spent annually on workers compensation claims for hearing loss. That amount can be vastly reduced by supplying employees with the correct personal protective equipment.

4 Steps for Planning Your High-Pressure Gas & Liquid System Purchase

Designing a system for delivering highly pressurized gas and liquids requires engineers to successfully meet the challenge of achieving necessary flow input while mitigating potentially dangerous flow failure situations. The unique needs of the application the system is being used in must be carefully considered prior to the purchase of system equipment.

Supporting the Future of Aerospace: Haskel Teams Up with UBC Rocket Engineering Team

Most college students get to work on some pretty interesting projects, but only a select number of students get to build a rocket that will be sent to space. Students at The University of British Columbia (UBC) are in that select number. Competing in the Base 11 Space Challenge, the UBC Rocket Engineering Design Team is developing a fully operational rocket with hopes of winning the grand prize in December 2020. Needing equipment that would support their rocket development, the team reached out to Haskel for support, and possible sponsorship. Recognizing this as an opportunity to support future engineers, Haskel was more than willing to team up with UBC.

Putting Our Products to the Test: How Haskel Ensures the Highest Quality in High-Pressure

Great engineering and superior quality have allowed Haskel to continually supply the most reliable pumps in the market. Recently, Haskel began running a series of validation tests on equipment in order to further test the quality and functionality of specific parts, and to foresee and mitigate potential faults consumers may experience with their products. We sat down with Haskel’s Process Engineering Technician Lead Danny Parra and Process Engineering Technician Gary Ramirez to find out what products they are testing, and how the results are affecting the future of Haskel’s supply chain.

Advancing High-Pressure Safety Solutions for Aerospace

With flying being one of the most popular travel methods, the considerations and regulations regarding safety have become increasingly important. Before passengers step foot on an aircraft, manufacturers pay significant attention to the intricacies of air travel. To survive high altitudes and low atmospheric pressure, a pressurization system is put on all aircraft to assist passenger breathing. These pressurization systems constantly pump fresh, outside air into the airplane body allowing for safe and convenient air travel. Having a reliable pressurization system is crucial to the safety of the pilots and passengers on board, but what happens when pressure is compromised? Having reliable backup air is critical to the performance of the pilots, and safety of the passengers.

Haskel On The Move: New Life for Hydrogen Refueling Stations

September was a busy month for Haskel Europe, with the decommissioning, relocation and recommissioning of two hydrogen refueling stations (HRS).

Haskel, which has been providing hydrogen refueling solutions for several years was recently challenged to decommission, relocate, and recommission one of its earlier hydrogen refueling stations. Initially supporting the French postal service (La Poste), the station was located in Luxeuil. Haskel successfully relocated and safely recommissioned the station in Grand Dole, becoming the first hydrogen fuel distribution station in the region.
