AIS Hazardous Area HMIs Drive Refinery Performance and Reliability, While Reducing Maintenance and Regulatory Compliance Costs

Class 1 Division 2 Zone 2 Panel PC Optimizes Operators’ Efficiency and Reliability During Inspection Activity, Minimizes Downtime, and Improves Environmental Performance HMI and Remote Control System, UL Class I Division 2, Class 1 Div 2, ATEX Zone 2, and IEC-Ex Zone 2 Touch Screen Panel PC (Photo: Business Wire) HMI and Remote Control System, UL Class I Division 2, Class 1 Div 2, ATEX Zone 2, and IEC-Ex Zone 2 Touch Screen Panel PC (Photo: Business Wire) IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–American Industrial Systems, Inc. (AIS), is pleased to announce availability of their new Hazardous Area HMIs and Thin Clients manufactured for petroleum refineries and industrial plants. As refineries convert crude through distillation and chemical reactions into a variety of valuable fuels and lubricants for downstream applications, they need digital control and monitoring equipment to replace manual operator processes. AIS panel PCs are specifically engineered to help oil and gas operators improve plant performance and reliability, improve operator reliability and safety, reduce operational costs and support compliance to environmental regulations.

With MS, Treating Magnesium Deficiency Should Be a Priority

While Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are the true “two great things that go great together,” calcium and magnesium take first place for those with MS. Many proponents of special diets for MS encourage the consumption of foods high in this mineral dynamic duo (along with other vitamins needed for effective absorption), and for seemingly good reason. Magnesium and calcium need each other in order to be effectively absorbed and used by the body. While many people may get enough calcium in their diet, it doesn’t hurt to double-check the nutritional guidelines. Postmenopausal women, in particular, should consider calcium supplementation. For this column, I want to focus on the role of magnesium for people with MS. According to several sources, the typical United States diet may not provide sufficient magnesium. In 2006, the Grand Forks Human Nutrition Research Center, publishing on the relationship between magnesium and exercise, found that a significant number of individuals do not consume sufficient magnesium. Similar results were found in another review, which also pointed out the potential effects of magnesium on neuromuscular function — something we can all agree is especially impor...

Laser texturing software guarantees quality and productivity

Smartpatch technology brings together smart machining strategies, increased quality, and optimized productivity to advance laser texturing as a manufacturing process. Significantly greater productivity—ranging from 20% to 40%, depending on the specific application—and quality are among the cost-saving benefits reported by early adopters of GF Machining Solutions’ latest-generation GF Laser Workstation Software. Moreover, testing in their own application centers confirms that the optional software suite with Smartpatch technology can accelerate texturing speed by 30% compared to the speed of the same process without Smartpatch. These gains in production efficiency and quality are made possible by the process intelligence engineered into GF Laser Workstation Software 1.8.0′s Smartpatch technology. With advanced generation of sections—or patches—of texture, the technology brings together smart machining strategies, increased quality, and optimized productivity to move customers into the future and advance laser texturing as a manufacturing process. In the highly competitive and fast-moving mold and die environment, manufacturers do not have a moment to waste in their pr...

Fireboxes Market Comprehensive Analysis of World Markets, Trade, Commodity Review Of Long-Term Forecasts 2017 – 2025

Fireboxes are present in every fireplace, be it in a steam engine or a house. They are used extensively for heating and to some extent, for cooking and decoration purposes. Fireboxes are available in various sizes as per the customers’ needs. A typical firebox consists of cast refractory panels, a fire grate or log pan and a fire screen. Cast refractory panels come in various sizes and designs and can be made of different materials, such as cement, bricks or metal. Prefabricated fireboxes come with metal panels. A fire grate or log pan is the chamber where fire is ignited using wooden logs or coal chips. It’s the most important component of a firebox. The fire screen separates the room from the fireplace, which ensures that no excess heat flows into the room, making the people inside uncomfortable. Fireboxes work on the principal of thermodynamics where the logs or other fueling agents, such as coal, are burnt in the fire grates. The heat thus produced is reflected by the refractory panels and the same is controlled using the fire screens. Fireboxes come in a number of variants as per the standards set by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and American Society for Te...

Woven or laminate? That’s the choice for anyone in the market for cruising sails – until

Woven or laminate? That’s the choice for anyone in the market for cruising sails – until now. Chris Beeson finds out how North Sails has blown the debate wide open with NORDAC With no seams or patches anywhere, these sails should furl and unfurl easily and smooth the airflow Credit: Amory Ross/North Sails As with most things in life, choosing new cruising sails involves compromise. You can opt for the longer life and lower cost of woven polyester sails and accept that, within a season, they will begin to stretch and you will lose full control because you can’t flatten the sails, which means more heeling, more weather helm, more leeway. There are more expensive sailcloths that weave in stretch-resistant fibres like Dyneema and Vectran, but the very fact that they are woven means they will still stretch as the fibres straighten under load. Woven polyester sails are by definition low modulus (resistance to stretch), low tenacity (breaking strength) compared to newer fibres, but remain popular because of their comparatively low cost, high UV resistance and high flex resistance, which means they can take a lot of punishment. In the early 1980s, another option became available: the p...

Verizon Offers Free Electronics Recycling Rally on Thursday

Verizon employees and contractors will gather in the parking lot of the company’s Dulles facility on Sept. 19 to collect unwanted electronics and other items from home or the office for recycling.          The free Recycling Rally is part of Verizon’s commitment to protect and preserve the environment by enabling employees and the public to be green at work and at home. The supplier disposing of the discarded items will adhere to Verizon’s zero-landfill objective, meaning the materials will be reused or recycled so that they do not end up in a landfill.  This will be the ninth Recycling Rally locally, and the first at Verizon’s Dulles center, at 22020 Broderick Dr. Continuous Plastic Recycle To Diesel Recycled items can include glass, plastics and aluminum cans; laptop and desktop computers; CRT (cathode ray tube) and LCD (liquid crystal display) monitors and televisions; computer cables, mice and keyboards; gaming consoles; telephones and answering machines; stereo and audio equipment; paper shredders; alarm clocks; printers; cameras; conferencing equipment; remote controls; earphones; small electronic appliances (such as coffee makers, toasters, toaster ovens and can openers);...

2020 Lamborghini Sian is the most powerful Lambo ever: photos, specs and design details

Lamborghini took the wraps off the Sián a few days ahead of the Frankfurt motor show, unveiling its most powerful car ever and the first to feature a hybrid powertrain fed by a supercapacitor. The Sián pairs the 785-hp 6.5-liter V12 borrowed from the Aventador with a 48-volt mild hybrid that squeezes out an extra 34 hp for a total output of 819 hp. So it’s not the kind of hybrid meant for maximizing fuel efficiency during an urban commute, even though the Sián will rely on electric power alone at slow speeds, such as when looking for a parking spot in front of a fancy restaurant, which is where we imagine one might see it … if at all. The real technological marvel in the Sián is its method of energy storage: It’s not a traditional lithium-ion battery, as in just about all EVs and hybrids, but the aforementioned supercapacitor, tech that was tested in the Aventador. The automaker says it’s three times lighter than a traditional lithium-ion battery that produces the same amount of power — Lamborghini placed it between the bulkhead and the cockpit for optimal weight distribution — with the entire mild-hybrid system, including the motor, weighing ...
