Polycontrols now offers the Tricor TCMH 0450: a high-pressure Coriolis mass flowmeter, available in three pressure ratings: 414 bar, 690 bar and 1050 bar (6000 psi, 10,000 psi and 15,200 psi) ). Material choices for U-tubes are either 316L stainless steel for chemical injection applications (NACE compliant) or Sandvik® Alloy HP 160 alloy chosen to eliminate hydrogen embrittlement. as in the service stations. The TCMH 0450 is the world’s first MI-002 / OIML137 certified Coriolis flowmeter for hydrogen dispensing applications.
took place last Saturday, September 29, 2018. Six teams participated in the tournament, and about forty people were present for the families’ dinner. Good weather and smiles were present!
On September 25 and 26, a seminar on additive manufacturing by cold spray will be held at the National Research Center of Canada, established in Boucherville. The latest results on the additive manufacturing capacity of large components for the aerospace and automotive sector will be presented. The possibilities of developing new applications such as parts consolidation, dimensional restoration and structural repair of metal parts and structural reinforcement will also be discussed.
Polycontrols is pleased to acknowledge NSERC’s significant support to the Green Surface Engineering for Advanced Manufacturing (Green-SEAM) Strategic Network. This five-year network is the first to create pan-Canadian collaborations, bringing together the main disciplines of surface engineering. It will be the first to develop environmentally friendly solutions for the entire Canadian coatings and surface engineering community – a model that can be applied to other industrial sectors!
July 7th was the official opening of our brand new Flow Technology Microtrak and OmnitrakTM Positive Displacement Flow Meter Calibration System. It is with pride that Sylvain Desaulniers, Martin Richer and Jean-Pierre Bessette inaugurated this new device, which will be able to offer you performances, incomparable reliability and numerous economic advantages. We wholeheartedly thank everyone who was present.
Polycontrols will be attending the SURFTEC conference on High-Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) Thermal Spray Deposition, a technique mainly used in the aerospace and automobile industry. Our powder dispenser is particularly designed for this type of application: “The M4 Feeder allows bypassing the buoyancy problems of some powders and reduces the production costs of protective or functional coatings by increasing the deposition rate of these powders to values traditionally obtained with plasma spray. “.
The bi-annual meeting of CNRC-NRC members SURFTEC will take place on June 18-19. Founded in 1995, SURFTEC gathers engineers and scientists from different technical fields such as coatings and thermal projections, to work on various projects. The main topics include the cost reducing of applications, the optimization of processes, and the development for commercial purposes of new materials, equipment and processes used.
Fernanda Caio, project manager at Polycontrols, presented her poster on “Influence of the shape and roughness of the substrate on the microstructure coating in the plasma jet suspension” during the annual meeting of Green-SEAM, which took place last week. This poster was made for the ASM Student Contest, where it won the second place! Congratulations Fernanda!
This week is the annual meeting of Green-SEAM. Polycontrols is proud to participate in this strategic network whose main mission is the development of a new generation of surface coatings for advanced manufacturing. This NSERC-supported strategic network brings together a dozen Canadian universities and Research centers as well as several major OEMs and industry professionals to develop and compare innovative solutions while analyzing the environmental aspect of these new surface coatings.
Polycontrols will be at ITSC 2018 (International Thermal Spray Conference) to present their manuscript and the latest developments on Ultrafine Powder Feeding in Thermal/Cold Spray Applications. Organized in Orlando, this International Conference brings together researchers, manufacturers, suppliers and thermal spraying specialists to share innovations and solutions for the industry.
