  • Flame and gas detection in hangars

    Flammable materials (aviation fuels, cleaning solvents, and paints) present in aircraft hangars can endanger life, safety, aircraft, and the hangar structure. To improve protection, many Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) either require or strongly recommend high-performance fire detection and suppression systems to cover both the aircraft and the building. Here are a few considerations to ...

  • Nuclear dump leak raises questions about cleanup

    For 15 years the trucks have barreled past southeastern New Mexico's potash mines and seemingly endless fields of oil rigs, hauling decades worth of plutonium-contaminated waste to what is supposed to be a safe and final resting place a half mile underground in the salt beds of the Permian Basin.
