Staying within the original project budget and timetable can be a challenge, specifications and scope of work keep changing constantly during the project and system maintenance of a finished, highly customized integration solution turns out to be difficult and expensive. Beamex minimizes these system integration risks by introducing the Business Bridge.

SuperCORR A prevents galling corrosion due to vibration on printed circuit leads and connectors maintaining performance with thinner gold plating. Due to the advances in gold plating technology manufacturers can reduce plating thickness over the substrate metal of connectors. The thickness of the gold plating is becoming thinner and thinner over time which saves a lot of costs as gold becomes more expensive. Reduced thickness of gold plating however will result in failures caused by corrosion. Minute irregularities in the surface of the connector’s base metal leads to irregular or uneven wear causing the “high spots” on the connector to wear through the gold plating. Using SuperCORR A prevents or delays corrosion and subsequent failures.

As it meets Mil-L-87177A by the U.S. Air Force to protect the intricate workings of the F-16 Fighter Jet and by the U.S. Navy on the P 3 Orion electronic surveillance aircraft. Savings for the U.S. government is estimated at $50 million per year. Commercial Aviation aircraft manufacturers recommend it for electrical and close mechanical high humidity. SuperCORR A is a lubricant containing corrosion preventive compounds, and as is the case with all lubricants they will be worn off over time. A manufacturer of connectors tested SuperCORR A to see what the “life” of the lubricant was in a “rub test”. The typical test is 20,000 cycles, i.e. unplug, plug in is one cycle. The test results demonstrated that after 20,000 cycles there were no failures. It was decided to take it one more step and run the same tests for 200,000 cycles. The results again showed no indications of galling or scoring on the USB connectors at all. The USB connector looked and tested as good as new.

Containing extremely long-lasting, proprietary anticorrosive inhibitors SuperCORR A provides a superior moisture, wear, general and fretting corrosion, surface static electricity, corona, and other electro migration formulated without sulphates, chlorides or halogens to meet the RoHS directive. It is unexcelled in preventing deterioration and contamination on all surfaces of electronic equipment.

In just two years the anaerobic digestion (AD) industry has shown remarkable growth, with the number of plants in operation outside the water sector increasing by more than 100% to 110 compared to 54 in April 2011. The rate of growth is increasing, too, with over two-thirds of the growth in the 12 months to April 2012 taking place in the second half of that period. As at mid-May there were a further 129 plants already in the planning system - either awaiting approval, with planning consent and awaiting construction or already under construction – so forecasts for continued growth in the sector long term seem realistic. Each one of these projects is estimated to involve between 200 and 300 contracts each, meaning the potential prospects for construction and engineering businesses range in the thousands. For those interested in exploring the potential of this market, this year’s UK AD & Biogas trade show, organised out everything you need to know to get involved in this burgeoning sector.

PROTECH INDUSTRIAL BOOT DRYERS Improved performance, saved labour and the ultimate in comfort for your staff. Since 1983, Protech have looked to provide simple solutions to everyday work problems by keeping personnel better prepared to face the working day. Our unique and well proven system solves the problem of drying and sterilising the inside of rigger and other types of safety footwear and at the request of QHSE officers worldwide, many units have been successfully installed on oil rigs and industrial installations. Reductions in foot sore complaints and general foot fungal problems are reported, which in turn has led to significant savings in downtime due to medical treatment and recovery.

FOR FILTER SPARES & ACCESSORIES dustbits.com has been launched to provide a gap in the market place for a One Stop Shop to provide components for Bag Filter Systems throughout the UK. Previously owners of Filter Systems would have to go to the Original Equipment Manufacturer to buy component parts and this would usually mean purchasing from several companies for Filter Bags, Filter Cages, Pulsing Equipment etc. The goal of dustbits.com is to bridge this gap by offering a full range of components at competitive prices so that the owners of the Filter Plants only have to make one phone call. The new ecommerce website with easily ordered components makes the process of getting multiple spares a simple task www.dustbits.com To complete the service dustbits.com provides LEV COSHH testing

Speck Pumpen ABC Ltd, with our partners ARPUMA, can offer integrated vacuum packages designed specifically for each application.

The new BluVac unit from Speck Pumpen reduces energy consumption by controlling vacuum required by the process. When less vacuum is created, less energy is being consumed. The highest energy saving is reached by using optimised calibration tools under minimal supply of additional air. Pre-series models of these systems reached savings of 67% by a major manufacturer of window profiles. Sensors continuously measure pressure levels in the system and water levels in the separator tanks. The unit monitors pressure and water levels output. Based on this measured data; the vacuum required is adjusted on the hand held Controller. If a lower pressure level is needed after the start-up the speed of the vacuum and radial pump is reduced accordingly which results in a considerable saving on energy consumption.

Ormandy Process Solutions have been manufacturing pressure vessels, heat exchangers and packaged solutions for over 25 years. Ormandy Process has steadily built a reputation as a supplier of high quality equipment to meet an ever increasing demand for the “Total solution” The tendency in today’s market place is to put price before design standards and this ultimately leads to poor performance - one of my fondest memories of a Chief Engineer was his recital of the quote from John Ruskin “Its unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money that’s all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do” The speed of information and the pressures put on the suppliers today mean that we will not always be able to get the full information required to put together a comprehensive tender – hence the need to work together to get correct information in front of the designers to make sure “ you get what you pay for” The skills shortage we have in the industry means there will always be a “gap” between the initial application meeting and the ultimate proposal that goes back to the client with all of the caveats that we see so often in this sector. Our philosophy in the Ormandy Group is to provide specialist in-house design to negate the issues of poor information, then to discuss it with the client to get full buy-in for the project. This enables us to deliver a quality product or package of products on-time and within budget - but more importantly to work in partnership with the customer to deliver a project we can all be proud of, for the future.

To keep pace with a major expansion of its online retail operations in Doncaster, Next tasked Rusmail Conveyor Systems & OCA to develop a solution for handling sacks of parcels ready for despatch to its stores and customers’ homes. The resulting overhead conveyor system equates to over a mile of conveyors capable of loading, sorting and directing the sacks to placed before 9pm to be delivered the next day. Rusmail worked in close collaboration with OCA its French partner used this type of conveyor. The project covered the design, fabrication, installation and commissioning of 6 conveyor loops of varying lengths each with a cable driven overhead conveyor equipped with hooks and special sack recognition devices. The bespoke system also incorporated automatic PLC based inverter speed control systems.
