FULTON MAKES KEY ENGINEERING APPOINTMENT

Fulton is delighted to announce the appointment of Stephen Finch as applications engineer. Stephen joined the leading steam boiler and heat transfer specialist just as the UK government announced its lockdown measures to combat Covid-19, but that hasn’t prevented Stephen, who has a degree in mechanical engineering and background in design engineering, from absorbing himself in his new role.

Commenting for Fulton, managing director Carl Knight says: “As we continue to innovate and look at new heat transfer solutions, like the multi-award-winning VSRT steam boiler, Stephen will play an essential role in product development. He will also be assisting the quality department in ensuring compliance for the company’s latest range of heat transfer equipment, including our fuel-fired and electric steam boilers; and providing engineering support for customers requiring bespoke skid-mounted boiler solutions featuring ancillaries including water treatment, chemical dosing and blowdown.”

BCAS urges best practice compressed air guidance is maintained during lockdown

Hart’s heaviest door completes contract

The installation of a three-tonne insulated roller shutter manufactured by Hart Door Systems completed a work package which has seen a total of 40 doors installed over the last year for Taylors of Harrogate, the independent family tea and coffee company.

Kyle Pendergood at Hart Doors says: “The installation of the shutter concluded a project which we have been involved with through Sir Robert McAlpine and which has seen just about every Hart door product installed – from our Speedor high speed doors to fire shutters, security shutters and steel personnel doors. This has been one of our largest contracts.”

COOLING TOWERS RECONSIDERED

Gary Dicker, director at dhd cooling, explains why the evaporative cooling tower is still a great choice.

There is a lot of bad press surrounding evaporative cooling towers, but they are still one of the best long-term solutions for industrial and commercial cooling challenges and here’s why.

In order to reach certain cooling temperatures dry cooling alone is not the answer, in these cases there are a few bolt-on options that you can put on a dry cooler that will reduce cold water temperatures, but these come with their own distinct disadvantages.

WIND AND WEATHER PROTECTION SYSTEMS FOR POWER AND INDUSTRIAL SECTORS

DHD Cooling, working with Galebreaker, is constantly expanding its range of wind and weather protection systems to meet the many challenges in the power and industrial sectors.

As the market leader in weather protection systems Galebreaker continues to develop CFD modelling techniques that can accurately model entire air cooled power plants to determine the right position and porosity of wind reduction systems. These solutions have not only improved thermal efficiency of power plants but also protect mechanical equipment from wind induced vibrations, so reducing downtime and improving mechanical performance.
