Heat transfer equipment is heavily relied upon in the petrochemical industry to efficiently transfer heat to and from various components. The heat exchanger is also widely applied in areas such as, air conditioning and cooling, plastic, natural gas, and chemical processing. Because of the nature of the heat intensity involved in the design and operation of heat transfer equipment, important safety concerns should be addressed when designing the appropriate thermal transfer equipment for your business.
The piping schematic of an average thermal transfer product contains a thermal fluid... Read More
What does it mean to be "living off the grid?" This is a term that is used in a wide variety of contexts, from a friend or colleague simply choosing to stay away from Twitter during a particularly distressing news story, to a couple you know choosing to put away their techno gizmos for a romantic evening in the country, to someone you know literally cancelling their cable and cell phone contracts...and then, to your horror, building an outhouse. What makes people want to make choices that might seem extreme to the majority of their peers? What are the pros and cons to choosing to live somewhere... Read More

It would seem most of us now accept the reality of climate change. In a recent Australian Government-funded research project, some 75% of those surveyed said they believed in climate change. We accept that the authorities have enough evidence to support their claims. But does that make them correct? Some two years ago at the UN's Copenhagen conference on climate change, thousands of poiticians and vested interest groups met to issue a warning, that unless we act now it would be too late :- oceans would rise with devastating consequences. Rather ironically, it was also estimated that the delegates... Read More
A mechanical arm, guided by cameras, for mounting solar panels faster. Robots are being built in Germany that could help reduce costs and time
Robots are being built in Germany that could help reduce solar panel installation costs and time. The project is currently being developed by two companies, PV Kraftwerker and Gehrlicher, and permits faster and cheaper installations, making it possible to also work in non-optimal weather conditions or at night.
The project provides for the construction of robots capable of working automatically in installing solar power systems on the... Read More
For more than a year, the Università degli Studi of Milan and the Politecnico of Milan have been cooperating on an ambitious project: the creation of a common sustainable campus.
Through residents, renewable energy, and the environment, Milan is working to build a sustainable campus. At the Politecnico, they have installed dumpsters that measure the weight and volume of the material that is placed in the dumpsters, and send the data online via GPRS for the monitoring and management of waste collection. The idea is also being experimented with in Beijing.
But even Italian universities... Read More
70-80% of water resources used by humans goes to agricultural irrigation: it takes 500 liters of water to produce one kilo of wheat
The growing demand for water is closely linked to the continuous increase in food production, and water pollution that renders enormous amounts of water unsuitable even for industrial uses. But the way to reduce our "water footprint" exists, starting from reducing the amount of fresh water taken from the natural cycle.There are 7 billion of us on Earth today. If we continue at this rate of growth, in 2050, there will be 9 billion people on our planet. To... Read More
