Safety is a critical aspect to any fluid power system, not just from the basic level of keeping components plumbed properly, but also in overall levels of machine safeguarding. It is critical to evaluate the entire system, including the electrical portion, to minimize exposure to unnecessary risk. Systems are rated based on the weakest link in the control chain. Several standards define the control system as including not only input, sensing, and interlock devices but also output devices such as pneumatic and hydraulic valves. The function of a fluid control valve mimics that of an electrical-control relay and, therefore, is subject to the same rules for classifying safety integrity. Providing control reliability with fluid power is not quite the same as with electrical controls, however. For instance, plain redundancy in a safety circuit requires the equivalent function of four valve elements, not just two. Two of the four valve elements handle the inlet function while the other two elements handle the stop function. Many self-designed systems risk having hidden, potential flaws, which can lead to unsafe conditions because they are unseen, unexpected and, therefore, excluded from design and safety reviews. The use of double valves remained relatively unheard of for many years except in a few select industries, such as stamping presses, which first initiated control reliability requirements. Double valves provide dual internal functions (for redundancy) so that an …
A recent incident in New York with inflatables going airborne sparked some questions about inflatable safety and what measures can be done to increases awareness of such bounce houses. Patrick Healy of NBC Los Angeles visited Sam Bagumyan at Magic Jump Inc. to talk about bounce house safety and what can be done to avoid such incidents. Bagumyan talks about bounce house safety measures taken by Magic Jump Inc. and what consumers can do to help avoid such incidents. Bagumyan recommends operators to read the owners manuals provided by all inflatables manufactured by Magic Jump and for consumers to follow the safety rules that are located near the entrance of every inflatable ride. Bagumyan also recommends that more outside oversight and regulation for the inflatable rental industry can be beneficial to all parties, and is seeing to it to urge legislators and state officials to take initiative.

How are amusement park rides tested for safety? And is it true some are held together by only a few bolts?
I’ve always liked Amusement park rides like the Orbiter and Extasy and so on. But I always wondered how they were tested for safety. I also overheard some people talking at my state fair about how some rides are only held together by just a few bolts. Is anyone else ever scared of going on one because of the fact it can just fall apart? Just wondering and what are your opinions…
I began watching smp films after the mean kitty song. I became a big fan of mean kitty. I also began watching smp films. I really enjoy them and the tips and techniques Cory has taught over the years. When I heard this song I thought of SMP Films and decided I had to make a tribute for it. It took a long time since Cory has uploaded over 400 videos to his channel and I had to look back on all of them, Including every video for any interactive games, to see which would be good to use. If you’re a true SMP Films fan try and see if you can name every video (or film) that was used there are 93! I’m really glad I got to do this. If you like his videos you should check out his new channel dudelikehella for his new daily vlogs, very funny and entertaining. www.youtube.com Cory if you’re watching I hope you like it. Thanks for inspiring me to put my first video on youtube last year. You were a great inspiration and motivation for me to make movies.
