  • QuadOa and OGI: how EPA regulations are changing the way we look at gas leaks

    Earlier this year, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published Regulation 40 CFR, Part 60, Sub-part OOOOa, commonly known as Quad Oa, and finally brought optical gas imaging (OGI) firmly into the mainstream. This presents a major shift in the way fugitive emissions are regulated, and the technology that can be used.  Detecting and acting on gas leaks is naturally a major ...

  • Industrial Pressure Washer for Removing Heavy Layers of Grime and Grease

    An industrial pressure washer usually has pressure level ranging from 1000 to 3500 psi. This machine also heats water to high temperatures; a commercial pressure washer can reach temperatures as high as 330°F. This combination of heat and high pressure works to dissolve dirt and grease and wash it away from the surface. An industrial pressure washer may also use cold water when heat is not ...
