In industries as complex as aerospace and defense, there are countless parts and pieces of machinery in circulation. Manufacturers, buyers, sellers, and so on need to be familiar with each of them to do business. So how do entities in this industry navigate all these parts?

National Stock Numbers or NSNs, are 13-digit serial numbers assigned to all standardized items within the federal supply chain. All components that are used by the U.S Department of Defense are required to have an NSN, the purpose of which is to provide a standardized naming of components. The NSN system can be dated back to WWII when the military would use a specific component that had several different names depending on who supplied or manufactured the component. This made it difficult for the military to locate suppliers, or share items between the different organizational branches. An item could be in short supply in one location, but in surplus in another. To solve this sourcing issue, the Department of Defense created the NSN system.

An ejector is a device that is used in the most demanding of applications throughout different industries. An ejector is designed to remove air and other different gases from steam condensers. This process is completed through the suction action of a steam jet. An air ejector or steam ejector system is designed to create a vacuum without moving parts except for a solenoid valve that is used to turn the vacuum on and off. This type of feature translates into trouble-free continuous operation. Ejectors are also designed to operate efficiently for high vacuum and high volumetric flow requirements.
