When installing pipeline or cable networks, you will often need to use shrinkable tubing to seal points of connection and avoid damage from environmental factors such as contaminants. Cold and heat shrink are two common types of adhesive tubing which can be used to seal a pipe or cable from leakage or environmental damage. These two types of tubing are used in much the same way, but cold shrink is often more costly. As such, you may wonder which is the overall better option. In this blog, we will discuss the difference between cold and heat shrink products, and evaluate which one is better for most applications.

Aircraft carriers serve as the centerpieces of the US Navy due to their ability to transport aircraft across the globe. The primary advantage of these vessels is their capacity to launch and land jets even in small spaces. The chaos of compact spaces has forced engineers to design aircraft carriers with effective devices such as catapult systems, Fresnel lenses, and arresting wires. Catapult systems are used during takeoff, while a Fresnel lens and arresting wires are used to help the pilot land. While such systems have been in place for decades, they are continually being improved over the years.

Instrumentation is a critical component of any successful project. However, it is not easy to stay on top of projects if you are not constantly monitoring how things are going. That is where telemetry comes in. Telemetry is a highly automated communication system that allows access to remote areas and fast-moving devices for measurements, alongside collecting data transmissions for monitoring, display, and recording.
