04/02/2014 - Heat recovery: Industrial Cooling feature
There are four key benefits to considering heat recovery systems according to Kevin Whyte, a Director at ICS Cool Energy: firstly, to improve a chiller’s total energy efficiency ratio, secondly to utilise chiller waste heat, thirdly to reduce heating costs, and finally to reduce carbon emissions.
28/01/2014 - Protect expensive semiconductors with pure silver
Power controller manufacturer CD Automation discusses the use of silver semiconductor fuses and their ability to limit the peak current permitted to flow in a semiconductor circuit unlike the conventional miniature circuit breaker.
20/01/2014 - Efficient umbilical testing essential in today’s market
Within the oil & gas sector, the exploration of new and existing fields requires a large number of subsea structures, all of which need to be interconnected by umbilical systems. With the continuing trends in subsea to shore installations, and operations in deeper and deeper locations, umbilical systems have to cope with increased stresses. Mike Sherman, Marketing Manager at RMI Pressure Systems, looks at the testing of these systems and how to improve the efficiency and reliability of the umbilical installation process.

If a compressed air user wants to make a New Year resolution for 2014 then BEKO TECHNOLOGIES strongly advise to focus on one simple area. That could be to stop letting air go from 7barg to atmosphere without doing any useful work or work that could be done more efficiently or less costly.
18/12/2013 - Pipeline welds: seen, measured, quantified and approved
Hugh Davies, Director of Client Solutions at Optical Metrology Services (OMS), discusses how the latest internal weld inspection tools are helping oil and gas companies to verify the quality of risers, fatigue-critical and CRA-clad pipes, as well as curved pipes and manifolds.
11/12/2013 - Information systems provide the key to energy savings in process environments
With ever increasing energy prices, energy efficiency is a hot topic. Many process applications are heavy energy users, but identifying where to make improvements can be challenging, especially for large systems with complex interactions between different pieces of equipment.
02/12/2013 - Internet of Things – making every second count
Did you know that the world's population spends a total of 500,000 hours a day typing Internet security codes (CAPTCHAs)? That's a lot of time dedicated to something that, while useful for internet security, has no value whatsoever to the individual. Jonathan Wilkins, marketing manager of European Automation here talks about the impact on automation processes such as the repair and replacement of industrial components.
26/11/2013 - Seven steps for switchgear success
Cutting corners on the maintenance of low and medium voltage switchgear could end up costing users dearly, as unscheduled repairs and costly breakdowns all have a negative effect on the running of an operation and its profitability.  By adopting a preventative approach, it is possible to keep medium voltage switchgear in better health, identifying potential problems before they cause major disruption and significantly extending the lifecycle of the electrical equipment. Here, Colin Rice of Schneider Electric shares his 7 steps to preventative maintenance success;
18/11/2013 - Advantech illustrates the perfect pyramid of automation
Global industrial automation leader Advantech has described the architecture of control systems using an easily understood, visual automation system pyramid. The model describes the role that Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition technology (SCADA) plays in relation to automation hardware, in acquiring and managing information from the field. This allows better control and decreases the cost of maintenance by storing and managing all data in a single control room.
12/11/2013 - What is the Expected ROI from Common Control System Migration Projects?
Upgrading the ageing control system of any machine involves the full or partial replacement of the existing control system with new control equipment, re-designed using modern control techniques and naturally with the option of using the latest, supportable technologies. Below we consider a few of the more frequently undertaken migration projects:
