When operating a diesel engine of a vehicle or marine vessel, there is a chance that uncontrolled acceleration may occur. Uncontrolled acceleration can be highly detrimental to the engine assembly, potentially leading to mechanical failure or accidents. With the use of a component known as an overspeed trip, diesel engines can be safer to operate with the restriction of acceleration, even in the case of a failed diesel engine governor.

The angle of attack indicator, or AOA, is a tool that provides a pilot with visual indications on generated wing lift during flight at a given airspeed or angle of bank. This is made possible through components that visualize and display safety margins above an aerodynamic stall, also known as the critical angle-of-attack. Affected only by airspeed and an aircraft's angle of bank to stall, the AOA does not change based on the vehicle's center of gravity, density, altitude, temperature, bank angle, or weight. Within this blog, we will discuss the many importances of angle-of-attack indicators for fixed-wing aircraft and why the parts that comprise them are important to maintaining flight safety.

Used for the application of reducing friction between two or more moving surfaces, lubricants such as grease act similarly to oil due to their properties. Although grease is coined as a general term, the actual material itself is composed of a varying range of base oils and additives. Semi-liquid in consistency, greases are typically composed of 80% to 90% base oils while thickening agents and additives are included in tandem to produce the quality and consistency that such lubricants are known for. Within this blog, we will discuss the purpose of greases, what they consist of, and how they are made.

Electrical wires and cables are components that assist in power and data transfer for the operation of electronics. While wires and cables both serve similar applications, wires are single electrical conductors while a cable may consist of numerous wires bundled together inside of a single sheathing. With our modern society relying upon countless electronics and electronic appliances, there are many variations of wires and cables that may be used to facilitate electrical connections. To help you in your search for wire and cable electrical components, we will provide a brief overview of some of the most common types that are used.

Aerospace adhesives are used through the interior, exterior, and engine compartments of an aircraft. They are used on countless parts, ranging from overhead lockers, to seat trays, to in-floor lighting, and more. The engine contains threadlockers, retaining compounds, hydraulic system thread sealants, and structural adhesives. Furthermore, exterior panels, wing spars, and door moldings all use adhesives of some type.
