Seeing Red

pneumatic solenoid valves
I enjoy this close-up of a hydraulic motor for the vibrant red hue. I also like how details such as chipped paint, dents, and scuffs are revealed under this inspection of a common piece of equipment. It makes us realize how much industrial machinery is used around us without even a thought. Even more amazing is that power can be generated by fluid under pressure and controlled by pneumatic solenoid valves. It may not be new technology, but it still fascinates me. Also fascinating to me are the tiny specks of green around the bolts – we can only wonder what happened there…
