    • Big brother big pharma nanotechnology and you (Kansas City Examiner)- July 26, 2010
    • Imagine a medical device that travels through the human body to seek out and destroy small clusters of cancerous cells before they can spread. Or a box no larger than a sugar cube that contains the entire contents of the Library of Congress. More...
    • The world's first molten salt concentrating solar power plant (Guardian)- July 22, 2010
    • This month, the Italian utility Enel unveiled "Archimede", the first Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) plant in the world to use molten salts for heat transfer and storage, and the first to be fully integrated to an existing combined-cycle gas power plant. More...
    • How safe are heat transfer systems? (The Engineer)- July 20, 2010
    • Questions are being raised over the safety of heat transfer systems used in the process industries. The thermal fluid used in these units can be a serious fire and explosion risk, especially if the oil falls short of the required specification and/or is not regularly monitored to ensure it is in good condition. More...
    • New Thermal Clad® Dielectric Provides Superior Heat Transfer for High Power Lighting LED Applications. (Thomas Net News)- July 19, 2010
    • At 0.0015 in. thin, Thermal Clad® HPL (High Power Lighting) dielectric is formulated for high-power lighting LED applications with demanding thermal performance requirements. It withstands high temperatures with glass transition of 185°C and thermal performance of 0.30°C/W (RD 2018). Substrates minimize thermal impedance and efficiently conduct heat. Use results in lower operating temperatures, which subsequently extends LED lifetimes and durability in HPL applications. More...
    • Keeping engines cool (Post and Courier)- July 17, 2010
    • The summer's sweltering heat is causing everyone to focus on cooling down, but that's the full-time focus for workers at Behr Heat Transfer Systems in North Charleston. Local Behr officials focus on the automotive parts that keep a vehicle's engine cool. More...
    • THT Heat Transfer Technology Jumps to Nasdaq (Reverse Merger)- July 15, 2010
    • THT Heat Transfer Technology, a Chinese company that specializes in designing, manufacturing and selling heat exchange units, has made the leap from an over-the-counter listing to the Nasdaq under the ticker THTI. THT Heat made its OTC debut in June of last year slightly before it closed a reverse merger with the assistance of Halter Financial Group. More...
    • New liquid body armor hardens on impact (Police One)- July 13, 2010
    • Liquid, bullet-stopping body armor. Read that again: Liquid, bullet-stopping body armor. It's not sci-fi, it's real, and a team of U.K. scientists have proven it has a future in protecting soldiers from incoming rounds or shrapnel. More...
