Avoiding blind spots in industrial temperature sensing systems

As much as we don’t want to admit it, modern temperature sensing systems are often the children of compromise. They are usually created after most of the design work for the underlying equipment is complete, which means thermal systems must conform to the constraints of the underlying system. As a result, issues not at the forefront of a manufacturer’s mind may emerge. In this article, Jeremy Ohse, staff engineer at industrial heating technology manufacturer Watlow, explains how thermocouples can eliminate these compromises.

Sometimes, budget can limit a temperature sensing system’s potential and companies cannot always get the sensor or heater density they desire. It’s possible to save a lot of money by reducing the number of sensors, but this comes at a cost of losing a complete picture of the entire system.

Space also plays a role. Heaters and sensors take up space, and the wiring that connects them grows with each addition to the system. This ultimately requires more space, which may not be possible in all setups. Companies respond to this issue by wiring their heaters in series, reducing the wiring and space requirements. However, doing so risks removing the ability to fine-tune the system, which creates implications for effectiveness and efficiency.

Reducing the investigation lifecycle through intelligence, efficiency and integrity

In this issue of Products & Services Review, we are pleased to announce Black Rainbow as our Computer and Network Security Company of the Month.

Established in 2017 by Morgan Sheehy and Dr James Kent, Black Rainbow was formed for the sole strategic intent of providing a modern and innovative solution for organisations within proactive and reactive investigations and operations. The company has, and are, transforming the way intelligence, investigations and evidence are managed, solving inefficiencies and managing risks faced by Law Enforcement, Government and Intelligence sectors with The Investigation Platform, NIMBUS.

Nikki Moscrop, Head of Law Enforcement & Government – UK explained more, “NIMBUS is the first integrated investigation case and quality management system available to the market with numerous capabilities. Every bit of information is recorded in a co-ordinated way enabling

one secure, permissioned environment. This allows reporting, sanitisation, dissemination and analytical work to be of benefit to any permissioned user utilising the technology via watchlist, notifications and alerting. Once again driving efficiency to provide the right information to the right person at the right time. NIMBUS then becomes the digital room assistant empowering investigators to accelerate investigations.”

Moreover, NIMBUS has a further integral capability specifically for intelligence generation, management, analysis, and reporting. Building on the basic case or incident data available within Operational Analytics, giving real time access to potentially invaluable information, this rich source of pertinent data can enable important pattern matching across cases where no obvious links were previously known or risk profiling.

We asked Nikki what one of the key benefits to NIMBUS was and she answered, “To be able to build a flexible software for on premise or cloud

“We have a much-improved overview on the current status of each ongoing investigation. The management of some several thousand data objects would not be possible without NIMBUS. Additionally, NIMBUS helps us standardise the required steps during an investigation to gain reproducible results and even automate certain tasks and therefore reduce our workload.”

Headquartered in Ireland, Black Rainbow also has offices in Suffolk, UK and in America with its most recent opening in Reston, VA, to aid the expansion of its US customer base. Specialising in IT software for investigations and forensics, the main sector of which Black Rainbow works within is the investigation and intelligence market, and this includes customers within Policing, Law Enforcement Agencies, Government, Financial Institutions, Corporate companies with insider threats and risks, forensics, and more. Black Rainbow brings to you an all-in-one solution that is a collaborative management system for Case Management, Quality Management, Asset & Inventory Management, Staff & Training Management and Orchestration & Automations.

investigators to see the bigger picture, optimising decision making with an effective and defensible audit trail. We call it The Investigation Platform.”

NIMBUS has been transformative and is streamlining the way the global market has operated previously where companies are no longer dependent on spreadsheets, unsupported open sources, or siloed systems for their investigation management requirements. NIMBUS provides complete control and visibility of the investigation lifecycle, supported with defensible evidence tracking, task management and reporting, all of which are underpinned by compliance to the latest quality standards and procedures.

As investigations become more complex and time sensitive, physical and digital information needs to efficiently make its way into the central source of the investigation/operations command. NIMBUS absorbs this information rapidly to understand and build a visual sequence of events. Gathering this data and converting it into relevant, useable information for presentation as potential evidence has historically not been simple. NIMBUS is designed to streamline this process, reduce data duplication and optimise decision making whilst maintaining investigation integrity and disclosure rules. For some time, the disciplines around intelligence and investigations have been separated. Dealing with siloed data naturally incurs time penalties in time sensitive situations and this has come through legacy working practice lagging technology. Nikki continued, “Today NIMBUS delivers this from the inception of any intelligence through to the conclusion of the case to be in

deployment with mobile device compatibility. Furthermore, once deployed, our customers can manage the user interface with any configuration changes allowing them to adapt to changes in the way they work now and in the future. This brings huge advantages to our end users as they do not have to wait or incur any additional costs.”

Here is some of the feedback from customers who have benefitted from NIMBUS.

“Prior to having NIMBUS, all aspects of our investigations were recorded and managed across multiple solutions such as email, spreadsheets and on employees’ devices. Having NIMBUS allows up-to-date, accurate and auditable recording of casework which has been game changing.”

“When looking at the other options during our procurement process NIMBUS was the only tool that fully met our needs and was capable of managing investigations, evidence, forensics, and ISO accreditation.”

Looking ahead, the next phase for Black Rainbow is further growth and resilience to meet the market evolution. “Our mantra has always been about providing usable technology to the industry that we have all worked and served in for many years. As a team, Black Rainbow genuinely wants to help and make a difference in how we all go about our daily work and will continue to engage with our customers and focus groups on enhancing NIMBUS at every step,” said Nikki.

Seriously hot smokeless fire pit

In this issue of Products & Services Review, we are proud to announce ECO Fuego as our eco-friendly fire pit Company of the Month.

With spring rapidly approaching and balmy summer nights on the horizon, this could be the right time to invest in a new fire pit. The ECO Fuego Fire Pits are revolutionary: smokeless and eco-friendly; perfect for garden parties, picnics, fishing trips, festival glamping, family camping to larger events.

From small gardens to large fields, the ECO Fuego Fire Pits is perfect for cosy get-togethers with friends and family.

Founder Tim Jeffs is no stranger to blue-sky thinking, after coming up with ingenious crop candles to heat English vineyards in winter. During bitter cold temperatures below -15°C, frost unwittingly destroys fragile buds. Tim designed crop candles to heat up the grapevines, using 100% biodegradable vegetable wax. Tim then decided to trial the same crop candle design into the fire pit market and the results have been astonishing as Tim confides, “This was the litmus-test year: to see if our patented fire pit design would appeal to domestic consumers. We have produced the most eco-friendly fire pit in the WORLD: it produces 90% less carbon, compared to conventional fire pits. ECO Fuego fire pits produce 1.4kg CO2/hr, compared to an average 1 bag 5kg wood-burning fire pit, which produces up to a whooping 15kg CO2/hr.

Our maiden voyage has been a complete success: our fire pits now sell in 60 garden centres across the UK and we

proudly won the Product of the Year Award at SOLEX 2022.”

The handy, portable fire pits are easy to light and can be put out instantly, saving needless carbon smoldering. With a bright, continuous flame from the 100% Vegetable Wax Refills: this is the most sustainable fire pit on the market. Each candle has an estimated burn time of eight hours, saving on unnecessary log pile space, and leaving you more time to relax with family and friends around the fire pit. The smokeless effect is perfect for discreet gatherings: neighbours will be unaware of the fire pit and there is no residue or smoky

aroma left in the hair or on clothing, as Tim confirms, “Our consumers love our fire pits – one gentleman told me his asthmatic wife has been able to enjoy her first fire pit, without any adverse side effects.

“Our litmus-test year in the UK has been a resounding success! The fire pits and Natural and Citronella Refills can be ordered off our website or through garden centres. We are now considering branching out into the USA market, after numerous social media requests from our neighbours across the pond.”

“Glamping tent hire companies love our fire pits especially they don’t damage bell tent interiors, unlike conventional fire pits and the smokeless function means there’s no drifting smoke into neighbouring bell tents – everyone's happy!”

ECO Fuego Fire Pits come in five striking designs, including the new London, Sheffield and Ascot range: British manufactured with Sheffield steel. The distinct London design comes in a glamourous silver colour, perfect for modern, contemporary gardens and the Sheffield is more shabby chic, with a rusted metallic Corten steel design. With a speedy 24-hour delivery available, you could have a spontaneous fire pit gathering for the coming weekend and with a current Mother’s Day discount, this could be a perfect gift.

The ECO Fuego Fire Pit team will be at BBC Gardeners’ World, Glee and SOLEX 2023, demonstrating the awardwinning fire pit range. The fire pits are also available online and via garden centres (including Blue Diamond.)

Huddersfield speciality coffee roasters win coveted award

In this issue of Products & Services Review, we are proud to announce Bean Brothers as our speciality coffee roaster Company of the Month.

The UK has grown to become one of Europe’s biggest coffee markets, with the annual industry reported to be worth in excess of £6 billion. Coffee aficionados spend Sunday mornings lovingly grinding fresh coffee beans: filling kitchens with chocolaty Guatemalan or nutty Brazilian aromas, up and down the country. Coffee baristas don’t just serve coffee; they offer artisan liquid alchemy.

Award-winning brothers James and Jeremy Perkins from Huddersfield, West Yorkshire bring us their coffee alchemy, sourced from all the major coffee bean countries around the world. Starting with a coffee shop in 2000 aptly named ‘Coffeevolution:’ the first independent, speciality coffee shop in Huddersfield, the brothers sourced quality coffee beans from the offset. We sipped a Costa Rican filter coffee and chatted to cofounder James, “Having started out life as coffee shop entrepreneurs, we knew we needed to take control of our main product: coffee. To do this, we needed to visit the regions where coffee is grown, learn about the different farming methods processes effecting flavour and then find trading partners to make our vision a reality.

“Our main role now as speciality coffee roasters is to source great coffees from around the world and make them available for both our retail and wholesale customers. We sell to coffee shops, offices and businesses and provide training for all our wholesale partners to ensure correct delivery of our prized and award-winning products to the consumer.”

Coffee roasting is a serious business and Bean Brothers hand-roast small batches daily, maintaining optimal fresh coffee produce. The coffee industry woke up and smelt the Bean Brother coffee and in 2022 ‘The Captain’s Grog,’ a delicious rum marinated Guatemalan coffee won the coveted three-star Great Taste Award.

The full coffee product range includes blends, single origin and decaff, with a choice of grind from beans, expresso, aeropress, filter and cafetiere. Coffee aficionados can subscribe to a coffee delivery service, offering different coffees monthly. Many of the coffees are Rainforest Alliance and ‘fairly-traded,’ such as the Rwanda Sake Farm.

The Rwanda (Sake Farm) coffee comes from a 30-hectare east Rwandan plantation, supporting 2,400 farmers across the surrounding area. With sustained investment from the Kahawatu Foundation and the US Agency for International Development (USAID), amongst others, the owner was able to open a coffee washing station, staffed by women to process coffee beans in the area.

Bean Brothers have maintained its high-quality coffee beans foundation, established in its popular, bohemian coffee shop over twenty years ago. The company are committed to environmental sustainability: providing

recyclable bags for all products and reusable food grade plastic containers for customers.

James and Jeremy clearly have a passion for producing and supplying high-quality coffee and have found a unique, marketing method to spread their love of coffee. The ‘Bean Bus,’ is an eyecatching VW Campervan that undertook its maiden voyage last year, visiting food and drink festivals and Christmas markets, around the country. With its legendary coffee shop history, Bean Bus marketing and award-winning season, it was time for the company to move to a bigger premises, to grow the product line further, James tells us more, “We are coffee loving brothers who know how to set up and run successful award-winning coffee shops, which led to a thirst to follow the process right back to origin so we understand our product, and as a result, bring out the very best flavour profiles in our coffees.”

“We recently moved premises having outgrown our little mill to a bigger canal side location (close to Huddersfield University) in another Victorian textile mill.”

Kosmos Conscious Monitoring System by Kingsway Group was launched earlier this year, born out of insight and customer need. Whilst the CQC have not mandated use of alarmed doors and systems there is a growing number of NHS Mental Health Foundation Trusts investing in this area to increase detection of ligature attempts and to ultimately keep vulnerable service users safe in their care. In line with the questions Trusts have to answer when being inspected by the CQC, implementing a Conscious Monitoring System helps give practical solutions in answering ‘Are they Safe,’ ‘Are they Effective’ and ‘Are they responsive to people’s needs.’

The Conscious Monitoring System is easy to install and works in coordination with an already installed Kingsway alarmed Complete Door Systems or in new build projects where alarmed door systems are required. Set up, training and support are all provided as part of setting a team up for success and making it a positive addition to the working environment rather than feeling like an additional responsibility.

“Luxury for us is the high quality of raw materials and high production standards, based on strict pharmaceutical standards and GMP protocols, as well as the scientifically based selection of the right nutrients, in the right combination and in the right content. Luxury for us is our high-end packaging, which sprang from the Art Deco of the 1920s, an era characterised by euphoria and creativity,” stated one spokesperson from Sky Premium Life.

Decahedron Ltd. recently started promoting Sky Premium Life products around the world at various exhibitions such as the Pharmacy Show in Birmingham 2022, where it has confirmed it will be exhibiting again in 2023.

To address these concerns, Decahedron Ltd. has introduced the latest addition to its range – Sky Premium Life 5-HTP with Vitamin B6 & Vitamin C, which can significantly alleviate the symptoms of anxiety and depression. 5-HTP is derived from the seed extract of the plant simplicifolia, and in combination with vitamins B6 and C, contributes to normal psychological function, normal functioning of the nervous system, reduction of tiredness and fatigue, and protection of cells from oxidative stress. This supplement is just one of the many products that can help boost mental health naturally, safely, and consistently, as well as contribute to living a healthier and happier life.

There are a number of reasons why Sky Premium Life is one of the highest-quality brands on the supplement market. Across the Sky Premium life products range one may find lactose-free, sugar-free, gluten free, salt-free, vegan, vegetarian, Halal and Kosher products suitable for adults, that are trusted amongst various industry professionals and are equipped with certifications based on UK and EU guidelines and regulatory bodies.

Vitamins and supplements will always be needed as they are a fantastic way to compliment a healthy diet

and lifestyle, but what has Decahedron Ltd. planned for the future? Here’s Suhel’s take, “We plan to make Sky Premium Life vitamin and supplement products available at all pharmacies, health food stores and supermarkets in the UK by the end of 2023.”

In this issue of Products & Services Review, we are proud to award Bluelite Graphics with our Industry Excellence Award for exceptional high visibility vehicle livery and markings design and production.

In addition to this, the business produces large format billboards, internal/ external signage and bespoke promotional vehicle wraps. This leading company was a hit at this year’s Security & Policing Expo in Farnborough (Official UK Government’s global security event), promoting its innovative vehicle livery service and its award-winning, sustainable business processes with existing and potential customers.
