What makes APM Hexseal’s Seelnuts® different?

 

 

 

apm

 

seelnuts

 

 

 

One of APM Hexseal’s earliest innovations is the Seelnut®, a hexagonal nut that includes a fully integrated rubber seal with molded rubber threads. Designed and patented by APM Hexseal, these self-sealing nuts can be used with all types of conventional screws, bolts and threaded studs, in applications where there is a need to withstand internal or external pressures.

You can install APM Hexseal’s Seelnuts® just like an ordinary hexagonal nut, but, when torqued, Seelnuts® form a positive seal along the thread section as well as with the contact surface. APM’s Seelnuts® are available in all standard thread sizes as well as a variety of different elastomers to suit your application needs and are also compatible with most surface finishes.

Unlike conventional hexagonal nuts which require an additional o-ring to form a seal, the APM Hexseal Seelnut® is a single piece design that seals without the need for an o-ring. The elastomer is molded into a cavity in the nut itself, specially bonded to the metal. This design reduces the number of parts to be managed and applied, increasing the reliability of the seal, and contributing to overall performance efficiency.

Seelnuts® eliminate the need for gaskets, sealing compounds or surface preparation, resulting in a significant savings of both time and expense. APM Hexseal’s Seelnuts® are also reusable, meaning that they can be easily removed during maintenance, and then simply replaced with the seal being re-established when torqued.

In applications where vibration is a factor, APM Hexseal Seelnuts® are available with an additional factory applied self-locking pellet. In conjunction with the Seelnut® threads, the pellets eliminate the need for castellated nuts. The pellets allow a close fit without the added expense and potential safety concerns associated with other types of thread locking techniques. The integrated self-locking pellets themselves save assembly and maintenance time, further reduce the risk of system failure, and help contribute to workplace safety. Ultimately, the APM Hexseal Seelnut® with the self-locking pellet gives you the ability to set a new standard in equipment performance, sealing and maintenance.

Standex-Meder Electronics has developed various products including planar transformers for use in fast charging applications. The P560 and P900 planar transformer series with a combined 5kW-30kW power range have transformed the efficiency within inverters in fast charging units.

Furthermore, hi-current planar inductors can serve within the same efficient, low-profile packages.

For example, a manufacturer approached Standex-Meder with the challenge to provide a reduction in height of 50% from a traditional wire-wound transformer and create a custom solution that met their specifications. All this, while maintaining their footprint with higher efficiency and exceptional thermal management. The engineered custom solution included a planar transformer customized to fit their manufacturing and functional needs.

Benefits of Planar Technology vs. Wire-Wound:

  • Low package profile relative to wire-wound equivalent
  • Low leakage inductance, extremely efficient high-frequency operation, 98-99% to 40 kHz – 500kHz
  • Minimum skin effect/flat windings + reduced proximity effect (Low AC losses)
  • Excellent repeatability thanks to pre-tooled components
  • Easy termination of multiple windings
  • Reliable PCB construction
  • Standard outlines compatible with application-specific custom designs
  • Lend themselves to sophisticated and effective thermal management
  • Volumetric efficiency (small size)
  • Low turns count improves Cu loss
  • Optimized core cross section lowers core loss
  • Large core surface area promotes heat transfer

Wakefield-Vette reveals their standard heat pipe and cold plate repertoire

 

 

 

wakefieldw-vgeneric

heat pipe

Wakefield-Vette now offers individual heat pipes through distribution. These most common offerings are a great option for testing, sampling, and validating your heat pipe solution into eventual  production.

 

exposed tube

Exposed tube liquid cold plates ensure minimum thermal resistance between the power device and the cold plate by placing the coolant tube in direct contact with the power device’s base. Direct contact reduces the number of thermal interfaces between device and fluid thus increasing performance for the application.

 

fully buried tube

The fully buried tube liquid cold plates have the ability to cool both sides of the cold plate because of it’s positioning within the base plate. Another key feature is that it is not exposed to the outside environment. Some engineers prefer the epoxy layer above the tube to protect the tube from leakage.

 

rolled tube

Our rolled tube liquid cold plates are usually the most cost effective liquid cold plate solutions. The key attribute for this line of standard cold plates is that the liquid flow is contained in a continuous tube. The standard cold plates come in 2 and 4 pass versions.

 

Richardson rfPD is carrying the new cold plates.
Both heat pipes and new cold plates are now in stock at Digi-Key.

Prestolite Wire Brand releases EPDM 150°C Battery Cable

General Cable’s Prestolite Wire Brand of battery cable products are suitable for ground, starter
and power applications.

Prestolite Wire Brand EPDM 150°C Battery Cable is designed to the SAE J1127 specification,
manufactured in the U.S.A., and is the superior choice for various battery cable applications.
Thermoset rubber (EPDM) delivers superior performance and surpasses thermoplastic (PUR, PVC) compounds in flexibility, temperature performance, flame, durability and more. EPDM battery cables will not soften or distort from their formed shape when exposed to excessive heat or open flame. Thermoplastics (PVC) will deform under high temperatures, resulting in degradation of their physical attributes.

Not only does EPDM rubber exhibit excellent heat resistant characteristics, Prestolite Wire Brand’s 150°C-rated EPDM offers many other advantages as well. It provides 3,000 hour @ 150°C long-term heat aging capability but also can survive overload conditions due to being a thermoset material. The product exceeds the -40˚C cold bend requirements and can deliver low temperature performance to get the job done!
