  • 2013 Marked the Thirty-seventh Consecutive Year of Above-Average Temperature

    Last year was the thirty-seventh consecutive year of above-normal global temperature. According to data from NASA, the global temperature in 2013 averaged 58.3 degrees Fahrenheit (14.6 degrees Celsius), roughly a degree warmer than the twentieth-century average. Since the dawn of agriculture 11,000 years ago, civilization has enjoyed a relatively stable climate. That is now changing as the ...

  • Granulators for Size reduction of pipes up to 6 meter (20 ft.) length

    Neue Herbold SR series granulators are designed and manufactured for the size reduction of full length profiles and pipes eliminating the need to pre-cut the material into shorter lengths. The 6000 mm (20ft.) profiles or pipes are fed horizontally into the granulator. The SR series granulators are used for applications ranging from profiles to extremely thick walled PVC, PP and PE pipes. The SR ...

  • Size reduction of profiles up to 6 meter (20 ft.) length

    Neue Herbold SR + LP series granulators are designed and manufactured for the size reduction of full length profiles and pipes eliminating the need to pre-cut the material into shorter lengths. The 6000 mm (20ft.) profiles or pipes are fed horizontally into the granulator. Generally the LP series granulators are used for the size reduction of PVC profiles and the SR series granulators are used ...

  • Heat Stress In The Workplace

    Heta stress monitoring, why you should monitor, effects of heat stress and how to combat it in the workplace. Why should you measure heat stress? If you or your employees work in hot environments you may be susceptible to heat stress. Heat stress us caused when the temperature of a surround area or the core body temperature is raised resulting in dangerous high levels. ...

  • Self-pacing as a protective mechanism against the effects of heat stress

    Objective: Self-pacing or avoidance of physiological strain by adjustment of work rate may be an important protective behaviour for manual workers in severe thermal conditions. Data were gathered at a number of industrial sites in the United Arab Emirates to assess whether self-pacing takes place in these workers. Methods: Heart rate and aural temperature were monitored in 150 subjects for 12 h ...

  • Coupled ADCPs can yield complete Reynolds stress tensor profiles in geophysical surface flows

    We introduce a new technique to measure profiles of each term in the Reynolds stress tensor using coupled acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCPs). The technique is based on the variance method which is extended to the case with eight acoustic beams. Methods to analyze turbulence from a single ADCP rely on questionable assumptions on turbulence anisotropy ratios and on the requirement of ...

  • Performance monitoring & troubleshooting with a new individual condenser tube circulating water flow and fouling (ClA/FF) meter - case study

    Introduction Midwest Generation Joliet Station in Illinois has two coal-fired units, Unit 7 and Unit 8. Roth 550 MW units are located on the Des Plaines River and have been in operation since 1963-1964. The circulating water system is a once-through system comprised of a bar rack, traveling screens, circulating water pumps and reversible condensers. The original condenser tubes on Unit ...
