Full Steam Ahead with SSOP

25-Sep-2017 04:52:00

If you think of your plant as a human body, then steam is the blood. So the last thing you want is for it to be leaking away, or be watered-down by condensate that leads to water hammer: the steam system equivalent of high blood pressure.

Yet on many sites, people ignore signs of trouble – whether it’s the hiss of steam escaping where it shouldn’t, or the banging of water hammer.

One leads to loss of steam, loss of pressure, inefficiency and higher energy costs. The other can create pressure peaks of over 120 bars, in systems generally designed for 10 bars only. That can wear seals, create more leaks, and in the worst cases cause valves or pipes to rupture with a catastrophic – and potentially life-threatening – escape of high-pressure steam.

Tough Chemical Protection and Unparalleled Comfort for Paint Work

17-Sep-2017 04:26:00

Paint shop workers are exposed to harsh chemicals and aggressive solvents when mixing and spraying paints. Even after their work is done, they need to protect hands when cleaning paint guns and robotic spray heads. Because their fingers have to reach in and around the small parts and pieces of this equipment, paint shop workers need thin chemical protection that offers good tactile sensitivity and dexterity.

Ansell’s Microflex 93-260 offers superior support for workers in such an environment. Microflex 93-260 is the thinnest chemical resistant disposable glove available. Because it offers greater tactile sensitivity than most traditional chemical gloves while protecting against a broad spectrum of chemicals it helps paint shop workers handle and clean their equipment more efficiently and effectively.
