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.

CERTIFIED THERMOGRAPHERS COURSES THROUGHOUT THE UK

New 2020 dates for FLIR Systems’ Infrared Training Center thermography courses

Thermal imaging cameras are becoming more intelligent and intuitive, allowing professionals across many industries to use thermal in a more efficient and safe manner. However, operator skill is still required to understand the science of thermography, how to operate related equipment and the scope of the applications to accurately interpret findings.

Announcing the FLIR TG297 High-Temperature Industrial Thermal Camera

Non-Contact Temperature Measurement & Thermal Imaging in One Troubleshooting Tool

FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) announced today the FLIR TG297 industrial thermal camera, which provides non-contact high-temperature measurement and thermal imaging for professionals in one tool. This versatile camera for industrial troubleshooting boasts a unique filter that enables maintenance, repair and operations inspectors to visually identify and find the source of many common issues in high-temperature applications, including kilns, furnaces, refractory and manufacturing.

Airborne Water Droplets Are a Big Issue, if You Catch My Drift

GARY DICKER, DIRECTOR AT DHD COOLING, PRESENTS A CHECKLIST FOR ELIMINATING DANGEROUS DRIFT FROM COOLING TOWERS.

Drift from a cooling tower can be a huge problem. Drift is the aerosol emission of process water from a cooling tower. These emissions are capable of travelling upwards of 1km, with a properly treated system the level of bacteria must be controlled within safe parameters but even in these systems the water droplets could be carrying Legionella Bacteria, so the potential for an outbreak is increased, if more drift is created. This is why it is critically important that as a plant operator you can spot the signs of excessive drift, and do something about it before it becomes a problem.
