“As we move forward into the 21st century, few issues are going to be as important as finding new and better ways to harness and obtain renewable energy through the endless power of ocean waves,” commented an MPI Group spokesperson.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2014
Magnet Products International Group, LLC (“MPI Group”), a leading manufacturer and distributor of flexible magnets, strong magnets and promotional products, was recently selected by California State Polytechnic University (Pomona) to sponsor a high-profile renewable energy project, which resulted in recommendations to improve the method used to harness and obtain renewable energy through ocean waves using Neodymium Magnets.
For the project, MPI Group provided university researchers with three Neodymium “Neo” magnets (“NdFeB”) that met the following technical specs:
- Dimensions: 2.00" Diameter x 2.00" Thick
- Tolerances: ±0.004" x ±0.004"
- Material: NdFeB
- Grade: N52
- Plating/Coating: Nickel
- Magnetization Direction: Axially
- Weight: 27 oz.
- Pull Force: 377 lbs
- Surface Field: 6619 Gauss
- Max Operating Temp: 176ºF (80ºC)
- Brmax: 14,800 Gauss
- BHmax: 52 MGOe
The supplied NdFeB magnets were among the strongest that MPI Group produces and carries. The company also provided specific care and handling instructions to promote safety, and ensure that the experiment yielded meaningful, relevant data.
A full review of the project prepared by California State Polytechnic University (Pomona) researchers, which includes a special acknowledgement of MPI Group’s sponsorship and contribution, is available at http://www.magnetpi.com/media/pdfs/RenewableEnergyProject.pdf.
“As we move forward into the 21st century, few issues are going to be as important as finding new and better ways to harness and obtain renewable energy through the endless power of ocean waves,” commented an MPI Group spokesperson. “We are honored and privileged to have sponsored this high-profile project, and look forward to future opportunities to contribute to the exceptional work that researchers at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, and others are doing in this critically important field.”
