It is worth noting that not long ago, in 1902, the year, the design for the automatic transmission torque converter appeared. Nearly nothing has changed during this time, all the basics and features are included in modern models.

Initially, these converters were installed exclusively on buses. Only a few decades later, manufacturers started to include it in passenger vehicles.

The driver can also change the torque and speed. Initially, this innovation began to be installed on the Ford car. Popularity has increased significantly after a few years.

An American Oil Boom Challenges the Future

Jan 31, 14 • Industrial Product Service, News, Torque Converters, World NewsComments Off on An American Oil Boom Challenges the Future

U.S. Oil Boom reshapes markets around the world.

The American oil boom has put European refineries out of business, while undercutting West Africa crude suppliers. As well, domestic drilling is challenging producers in the Middle East and South America.

Over the past five years, the U.S. went from depending on fuel from Europe to being an exporter to the region. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, Nigeria ships fewer than three supertankers of crude each month, where in the recent past it numbered closer to a dozen. The West Coast will soon cut back on imports of oil from Saudi Arabia and Venezuela, replacing it with cheaper oil from the Rocky Mountains where output has grown by 31 percent since 2011.

With North American exports of gasoline and other refined products hitting a record last month, the U.S. is on pace to become the world’s largest oil producer by 2015. Drilling in the Permian Basin in West Texas and the oil-rich Bakken shale, which stretches from North Dakota into Montana and Canada, has led the boom. Texas, pumping more than Iran, has more than doubled its crude output since 2011, along with North Dakota.

Warning: Industrial challenges ahead

American Oil Boom

Growing North American production will help the United States begin to meet its own energy demands, leading it to cut back on imports that will instead flow to emerging markets. This will inevitably lead to the shifting of the economic and political realities of the World as a whole.

K & L Clutch and Transmission stands to assist in the industrial challenges that are equally inevitable, as new technologies and proven technologies are applied together to meet the challenges that present themselves, both domestically and abroad.
