Making A Difference

After struggling for years to find a way to give back to my community, I started thinking about the incredible number of people who worked in the industrial field. I knew that a lot of people had trouble staying safe while they were at work, so I began talking with different people to see how they thought the industry could change. It was incredible to gather up all of the information and share it with the companies that could really make a difference, and now I honestly feel like I have made some big changes. Check out this blog for great information on making a difference in the industrial field.

Burning Hot And Cold: Other Applications That Are Perfect For Military Cable

The U.S. military has been at the forefront of technological development for almost a century. Much of what the government developed has crossed over into civilian life, including computers and massive SUVs. Research and development facilities have also incorporated a lot of items that the military developed first. One such grouping of items is military cable and wire. 

Military cable and wire were developed to withstand extreme cold and extreme heat. These items are used in aeronautics and space programs and in weapons and transport devices. As such, they have to withstand all kinds of conditions. However, their use is not limited to just military applications. The following shows how military cabling and wires may be used in other ways.

The Construction and Use of Lasers

Lasers have numerous applications themselves. Those that are used to cut tend to create really high temperatures, depending on what they are cutting. When constructing and using lasers, you will want military-grade wire involved. The wires will maintain even energy flow and control heat output so that the lasers do not melt their own wiring when in use.

Fire Research Labs

In a fire research lab you have a closed room that is meant for the testing of fire reduction, prevention, and extinguishing products. The lab is hot-wired with heat sensors that transmit data to the research lab computers. This helps the scientists determine if a product is able to do what it is supposed to do. When the sensors are not registering properly, there is often a problem with the wiring inside the closed lab walls. Replacing this wiring with military-grade wiring not only fixes this problem, but it also produces more accurate results because of the grade of wiring used to fix the problem.

Arctic and Antarctic Expeditions

If you are a researcher at either of the Poles, you need wiring that will not freeze up or fail when you need it most. The vast majority of the equipment at the research facilities in the South Pole and North Pole are made with military-grade wiring and cabling, including the snowmobiles used as transports. Other devices that require electricity and that are used at the Poles include ice-borers for taking ice core samples and generators to produce heat and power in a very isolated place. If anything you use regularly for your research breaks down or does not function as it should, you will need to put an order in for the type of military wire or cable the tool or machine uses. Nothing else will work in these frozen, barren wastelands.

Wiring and Controlling Temperature in Vats of Freezing Liquids or Gases

Can you imagine the technology it takes to store large quantities of liquid nitrogen or freezing carbon dioxide? This stuff has to be stored somewhere before it is processed, packaged, and shipped. In large holding tanks and vats, these super-cold items sit, constantly being controlled by the electrical components outside of the vat or tank. To make sure that no bit of dry ice or liquid nitrogen destroys the electrical wiring, reinforced and doubly-insulated military wiring can be used. It is something worth considering when your liquid nitrogen and carbon dioxide products are quickly turning back into gases right in front of you because the tanks or vats are broken and failing.

Prevention Against Electrical Fires

Electrical fires are some of the most dangerous fires of all. You cannot put them out with water, and yet, you cannot allow them to continue burning either. Most of these fires start with bad wiring that escapes its sheath, and then sparks to the nearest flammable material. With the high standards that the military imposes on all of the products it uses, such wiring would provide piece of mind in your home if and when you had to use the military cabling or wiring.
