Nowadays there is a LED revolution in the lighting segment. In terms of energy efficiency LED luminaires are the most promising, as they can significantly reduce the energy costs, have high luminous efficiency and longer service life as compared to traditional light sources.
Solar Light Towers for Remote Security
Lights are the most important components of security systems. Well-lit locations are generally avoided by trespassers, because such areas can disrupt stealthy movements. The isolated nature of far-flung locations, such as military bases, mining sites, agricultural operations and manufacturing plants, can be made secure with solar perimeter lighting, coupled with other security devices. Remote and Security Capabilities Solar light towers that are used to enhance security systems in remote locations are...
HID versus LED in Hunting Lights
Currently, high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps and light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are robust lighting technologies that can be found in the competitive hunting sector. Both types of luminaries have a solid reputation for producing bright, powerful light beams. However, when it comes to design and light production, they differ greatly. Light Generation HID fixtures, such as metal halide, high pressure sodium and mercury vapor lamps, generate light using filaments and gas. During light output, fast-moving electrons...
How much will a zero liquid discharge system cost your facility?
With increasing stewardship of environmental protection, both nationally and internationally, many industrial facilities and effluent regulators are strengthening strategies to reduce industrial process waste by implementing zero liquid discharge (ZLD), a process that limits liquid waste at the end of your industrial process to—as the term suggests—zero. A more recent example of how ZLD is being recommended for tightening effluent regulations is the new mandates passed by the U.S. Environmental...
Geli Keeps the Lights On When Utilities Can’t - Case Study
Challenge Imagine you’ve found the perfect plot of land and construction has started on your dream home, but in order to turn the lights on it will cost an additional $250,000. That’s exactly what happened to one couple in Marin county in Northern California. When local utility Pacific Gas & Electric quoted an exorbitant price to extend grid power to their new home, the owners decided to generate their own electricity. Solar alone could not provide for all of the home’s needs, especially...
Shining a Light on the Food and Beverage Industry
As published in this months edition of Process & Control, Diane White discusses how UV systems can provide a practical, power saving alternative to pasteurisation in food and beverage production Waterborne micro-organisms are responsible for adverse effects on flavour, colour, odour and shelf life of products and, of course, potential health risks to consumers. A number of emerging pathogens, like Cryptosporidium and Giardia are highly resistant to conventional chemical disinfection. As a result, the food...
