Lanemark Link With Midco Opens Up New Air Heating Opportunities

A major addition is being made to the range of process gas burner systems available from industry leader Lanemark International Ltd. that is set to enhance the choice of application opportunities for its customers. The company has announced an agency agreement with American manufacturer, Midco International Inc – covering the UK and other key international markets – which complements Lanemark’s highly successful TX tank heating and FD air heating product ranges. 

Midco burners are widely known for the benefits they offer to a number of industries, most notably where make up or replacement air requirements need to be met – an example being paint spraybooth air replenishment. High turndown and controllability are key features as are low emission levels, flame stability and a modular design. This latter characteristic allows any number of individual 6" sections to be connected to meet precise application needs in terms of dimensions and heat requirement. This versatility is further enhanced with the ability to use either natural or propane gas on a standard burner head.

Flexible induction heaters save time and resources

When it comes to the mounting oIn

fitted with flexible inductorsr dismounting of large rolling element bearings, flexible induction heaters can save significant time and resources, according to Ian Pledger of Schaeffler.

The correct mounting and dismounting of rolling element bearings can save companies valuable time and increase the life of the bearings, as well as maximising the availability of critical plant and machinery by avoiding costly breakdowns.

In order to correctly mount or dismount a bearing, it is usually necessary to heat the bearing first.

Various heating methods are available to do this - each with its own advantages and disadvantages.

Heating methods include thermal mounting and dismounting tools (heating plates), induction heating devices, mounting paste and heating rings.

Selecting the most appropriate heating method will ensure that the bearings (or similar circular steel components) are mounted and removed easily and quickly in a safe, reliable manner, without causing any damage to the bearings or surrounding equipment.

AmbiRad flies high at Coastguard helicopter hangars

http://www.engineeringmaintenance.info/images/RYP_09.jpgProviding rapid, targeted response to changing conditions, Nor-Ray-Vac continuous radiant tube heating offered the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) the unique opportunity to maintain a consistent temperature for two of their helicopter hangars.

For the Osprey Hangar situated at Portland, Dorset and the Daedalus Hangar at Lee on Solent, Hampshire, this solution provided the MCA with the best maintenance and storage conditions. Developed by the leader in efficient heating systems, AmbiRad, it meant that even when the vast doors were opened, the primary heat source was not lost.

Forces attracted to fuel savings.

CHP unit or main boiler roomMagnatech Fuel Conditioning Limited have recently completed a contract to install their  very powerful magnetic fuel conditioning units to all structural gas and oil burning equipment across five MOD bases in England. This was after research concluded that Magnatech was the most cost effective provider of this type of application.

The MOD have used this technology previously, when a number of  bases where equipped with  similar units, they calculated payback  within the year,  and now it is reported that  those units are continuing to save much more than their purchase price every year with no maintenance or running costs.  This figure is of course rising as fuel prices soar.

SIMPLE TELESCOPIC STAYS TAKE CARE OF YOUR CABINET DOORS

Telescopic cover stays from EMKATelescopic cover stays from EMKA are used for support of horizontal or vertical covers on control panels, e.g. rooftop air-conditioning cabinets, for support, or simply as a wind stay. Now their new 1097 variants incorporates a facility for manual pushbutton/pull cord operation. Use of a pull cord greatly facilitates operation of widely spaced multiple stays on very wide covers of one metre plus. It also enables simple operation and enhanced safety.

Standard features of the 1097 series include automatic or manual release types in sizes up to the new 710mm (extended length) 1097-U6 version. Automatic release operates when the open cover is raised (to release the locked stay), then closed. Manual release ensures an added level of safety - requiring somebody to physically push the release button or pull the cord for release.
