Posted by on Jul 1, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on 3 Tips To Create A Sustainable Commercial HVAC System

Maintaining a constant temperature inside your commercial buildings is essential when it comes to employee and customer comfort. A reliable HVAC system plays a critical role in helping control indoor temperatures, but these systems can use a lot of energy. In fact, air conditioning alone accounts for nearly 15% of the primary energy used by commercial buildings throughout the United States. Here are three tips you can use to create a more sustainable HVAC system without compromising comfort inside your commercial building in the future. 1. Regularly swap out your HVAC unit’s filter. Filtering contaminants from the outdoor air supply used to heat and cool your commercial space is a vital role filled by your HVAC unit’s filter. Over time, the contaminants filtered from the outdoor air supply can clog up the air filter. A clogged filter forces your...

3 Common Problems to Watch for in Your Check Valves

Posted by on Jun 3, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on 3 Common Problems to Watch for in Your Check Valves

The check valves found in your industrial equipment play an important role in helping to prevent fluid from flowing back into the engine and causing significant damage. A faulty check valve that goes unnoticed could be costly, so being able to identify common problems associated with check valves can be beneficial. Here are three common problems you should constantly be looking for when operating equipment that relies on a check valve to regulate the flow of fluid through the machine’s engine bay. 1. Failing pins and springs. Check valves come equipped with pins and springs that play a vital role in the opening and closing of the valve’s flange as fluid flows through the valve and on to downstream components. If you are using a piece of equipment regularly throughout the day, the valve may be opened and closed...

2 Things To Consider When Creating A Home Theater

Posted by on May 11, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on 2 Things To Consider When Creating A Home Theater

If you are a cinephile, you may want to be able to watch your movies at home in an area that is as close to a theater as possible. Creating your own theater space at home will make it possible to replicate the theater experience as closely as possible. When you decide to start creating your theater space, there are several things that you need to consider.  Insulation If you are building a brand new room for your movie theater, you will, of course, be installing insulation in any exterior walls. But you should also put some insulation in the interior walls. If the space is going to be part of a second story, you may also want to make sure that there is also insulation in the floor or ceiling. The insulation doesn’t have to be the same...

What’s The Best Choice For Air Compressor Lines?

Posted by on Mar 28, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on What’s The Best Choice For Air Compressor Lines?

Running air compressor lines to use pneumatic tools in a commercial setting seems like it would be simple, but especially in smaller commercial applications, there are many would-be options for transporting the compressed air. Here are the most commonly used options and their pros and cons. Black Iron Pipe Metal pipes can help compressed air, which contains moisture, to cool. This helps water separators in the line — essentially, filters that remove excess moisture before it can make its way to sensitive tools — to do their job more effectively. Black iron is extremely durable, although it can corrode over time. It can be heavy and it must be threaded to join pieces together, which requires more professional time and expertise. Thus, black iron can be harder to work with than copper, plastic or rubber, but it has fewer...

3 Benefits Of Using Preplaced Aggregated Concrete In Bridge And Dam Repair

Posted by on Feb 17, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on 3 Benefits Of Using Preplaced Aggregated Concrete In Bridge And Dam Repair

The use of preplaced aggregate concrete, also known as PAC, is a well-known concept. It is a method of placing concrete that has been around for many years. However, using PAC to repair underwater bridges and dams has only recently become commonplace. There are a variety of advantages to using PAC in bridge and dam repair: Less Cracking When placing PAC, a higher ratio of aggregate to cement is achieved due to the process in which it is placed into the formwork. The aggregate is put into the form, and then the grout is injected in increments. This can significantly reduce the amount of shrinkage that would normally occur in traditional repair methods. The reduced shrinkage leads to a higher bond with the concrete surfaces that are already present in the structure. This higher bendability and reduced shrinkage results...
