Hydraulic Control Upgrade for an Enerpac Pump

  We have a an old Enerpac pump in the lab where the Hydraulic controls were only Forward and Reverse. They were controlled with servovalves that open and close when 110 voltage is applied. I used timer relays to be

Closed Loop Chilled Water System for an Enerpac Pump

We needed to cool a hydraulic pump because we were going to run it longer than specs would allow. I made brackets to mount a tank to a stand. Then I used hose fittings to hook up the tank to

Metal Concrete Mold for Scaling Specimens

These molds were made to create uniform concrete specimens for ASTM scaling experiments. Angle iron for the height was used on the ends. Square plates that were drilled and tapped were welded to the ends of the angle iron. A

Metal Concrete Mold for Freeze Thaw Specimens

I made this metal concrete mold out of C channels and a Bridgeport Mill. All of the parts were laid out so each piece could be interchangeable. All of the mounting points were drilled out with a #7 drill bit and
