  • Fire Weather Networks , Wildfire Supression

    Every year, 35 million hectares —or about 1% of the world’s forests— are lost to wildfire. Recently in North America the area burnt by wildfires has increased sharply, while regions like Southeast Asia and South America have seen a rise in the number of land-clearing fires and other escaped wildfires in equatorial forests. The extraordinary costs of fire suppression activities are matched only by the damages to property and ecosystems these fire wreak—in South America, this loss is estimated at $1.6 billion annually. In the US, damages from major fires were found to account for as much as 95% of total costs from fire. Advances have been made through the use of basic weather data from meteorological stations. In years past, fire agencies used this data to develop fire danger rating systems that helped them predict, prevent and suppress fires. How can fire management agencies improve their ability to predict, prevent and fight wildfires? By installing dedicated fire weather network.

  • Moisture Monitoring for Breathing Air & High Pressure Air Systems

    A reliable supply of breathing air is critical for applications in the military, medical and fire fighting sectors. The presence of excess moisture in breathing air can lead to freezing in the pressure regulator and ice blocking the orifice, causing an interruption to the supply of air to the user. Such freezing effects have caused the loss of life and equipment in submarines and aircraft.

  • Innovative Pump Technology for Ship Industry

    In shipbuilding, high standards of reliability as well as increasingly the energy efficiency of the systems are important prerequisites for the economical-technical overall evaluation in the technical procurement process. Ships as self-sufficient systems are particularly dependent on the reliable functioning of all installed components, including the pumps. They fulfil many tasks on board which are vital for the operation of the vessel: Delivery of ballast water and wastewater, boiler supply, condensate recovery, drive engine cooling and of course the reliable supply of fire fighting systems.
