Increase your fire tube boiler's efficiency Why choose any one else? Eleventy Billion CC specialises in the cleaning of fire tube boilers using hydro blasting and wet or dry sand blasting.


n a fire tube boiler, water surrounds the tubes and hot gasses travel through it. Resulting in soot and scale build-up inside the tubes regardless of the fuel used. These tubes must be cleaned regularly to prevent fuel waste and increase boiler efficiency. For example, an 18 inch coating of soot can accumulate in a fire tube boiler in just two weeks, resulting in a heat loss of 47% and increase fuel

consumption by 812%. As the layer of soot build-up increases, the stack temperature rises. For every 4°C rise in stack temperature, the boiler efficiency is reduced by 1%, making the regular cleaning of your tube boilers a necessity.

Services offered • Efficiency cleaning (every 2000 hours) • 12 month government inspections • 36 month government inspections Other services offered: hydro blasting services for pipelines, condensers, heat exchangers, stacks, fans, grates, pits, tanks and parking bays.

Designed waterproofing solutions Specialised solutions to problems, others can't solve. Design Waterproofing Systems are specialists in the waterproofing, roofing and damp proofing industry.


ake advantage of 20 years of experience at Design Waterproofing Systems to CORRECTLY diagnose and repair your roof problems. More often than not, roofs are incorrectly repaired by ignorant waterproofing contractors. For instance, indiscriminate application of waterproofing membrane to metal roofs will usually create worse leaks in the long run and also cause rust underneath the waterproofing layer. This will necessitate a much more costly repair or even roof replacement in the future.

Design Waterproofing Systems are approved applicators of the Ceracoat heat barrier coating which when applied to a roof surface can reduce temperatures by up to 45%! Not only does this save energy costs and provide more comfortable working conditions for staff, but also contains a rust converter and helps prevent roof leaks by substantially reducing thermal shock.

Their speciality services • Rust treatment and spray painting to metal roofs • Repair and re-roofing to all types of roofs • All types of waterproofing systems • Damp-proofing of walls and basements • Applicators of Ceracoat heat barrier coating • General and specialist painting • Gutter installation and repair

MAPEFLEX PU65 smoothens the ride Mapei’s Mapeflex PU65 is an elastomeric, polyurethane sealant specially formulated to support vehicular traffic on roads, freeways and highways and sealing substrates subject to limited movements and heavy loads. Mapeflex PU65 offers • Resistance to bad weather conditions • Good resistance to deformability due to compression • Good tensile and shear strength • Considerable surface hardness • Mechanical resistance to rolling and sliding friction This black, solvent-free sealant comprises two components, a resin and hardener, which bind to provide a cohesive, pourable mixture. The reaction between the components causes cross-linking, and the time it takes to cross-link is influenced by the substrate temperature and the environment.

Mapeflex PU65 is poured into the cavities for the anchoring rods.

A transition joint after being sealed with Mapeflex PU65, mixed with sand.

Available in 10kg drums, Mapeflex PU65 is ideal for • Highway construction joints • Filling or sealing anchoring heads made from preformed and reinforced rubber • Steel road joints between adjacent decks • Use between a deck and the abutment of road substructures Mapei South Africa is part of the global Mapei Group, a leading manufacturer of adhesives, sealants and chemical 35

Eco-friendly & energy efficient cooling & heating systems Metraclark are sellers of environmentally friendly and energy efficient cooling and heating products. They have the widest range of quality systems, products and availability, backed by 27 branches countrywide.


hey offer refrigeration, air-conditioning, heat pumps, VFR systems & evaporative cooling systems, uniquely tailored to the needs of industrial applications.

TOSHIBA VRF VRF is a variable refrigerant flow system that uses eco-friendly refrigerant and heat recovery technology, allowing independent zone heating and cooling. It is an efficient system that combines simplicity with operating flexibility, reducing energy and maintenance costs.

iGeyser Heat Pumps The iGeyser heat pump is the future in non-sun dependant water heating systems. This system

collects ambient air through the air filter. The eco-friendly refrigerant absorbs the heat in the air and cools it. The refrigerant gets pumped through the system compressor, allowing the temperature to increase, heating up the water and expelling cool air to where it can be used. I-Geyser benefits: • 3 times more efficient than conventional geysers • Energy savings of up to 72% • Easy to install • Easy to use control panel with 3 energy efficient settings • Will work even if weather conditions are not favourable, unlike solar dependant systems • Suitable for interior and exterior applications • No pressure problems or cracked piping in winter

Water Wizard The Water Wizard is an evaporative cooling

system, with no need for complicated ducting. Ambient air is sucked into the cooler and passes through wet pads. The water evaporates into the air stream, the heat is absorbed and the air cooled. Water Wizard benefits: • Environmentally friendly • Filters dust from ambient air and expel fresh clean air • A cost effective alternative to other airconditioning systems • Energy savings of up to 70 – 90% • Auto water fill and dump function • Auto timer and air sweep

New discoveries are being added almost daily to the list of process by-products that can damage health in various ways. Even supposedly harmless products like flour and talc have proved to cause allergies. Often you are not even aware that what you are working with is unhealthy until it is too late.

Companies that invest in a safe working environment soon discover the benefits of having healthier, happier and more productive employees.

High performance at effective cost Affordable solution for applications that do not require a high level of accuracy? OPTIFLEX 1100C is the solution.


he OPTIFLEX 1100 C is a 2-wire TDR level meter for measuring distance, level, volume and mass of liquids and solids. It is an affordable solution for applications that do not require a high level of accuracy and is also an excellent alternative to traditional level controls such as RF Capacitance, conductive and DP transmitters.

art technology measures level independent from physical property variations such as dielectric constants, pressure or density. Unlike traditional meters, OPTIFLEX 1100 C require no wet calibration, not affected by linearity problems in irregular tank shapes and has neither fragile nor moving parts. It is loop-powered and available with a standard 20m
