Beauty Lasers: A Hot Market In Need Of Cooling

Beauty Lasers: A Hot Market in Need of Cooling

  • June 18, 2015

Every year more and more people voluntarily expose themselves to intense laser light. Lasers surround us at work and home, but they can be dangerous, so why would so many choose to do this? Two reasons: vanity and cost. Laser treatments, usually delivered in a clinic or spa setting, are an effective way of rejuvenating aging or damaged skin. They’re also cheaper than the more invasive alternatives. As a result, the market for these lasers is growing rapidly.

Mosquito Misting Systems

Summer is here, and with the long days and rising temperatures come the mosquitos. The top months for mosquito presence are June, July and August and no one is safe from mosquito borne illnesses like West Nile Virus. It’s time to protect your home and yourself, but how do you get rid of them?

Why the Wastewater Industry Needs Rebuilding

  • June 4, 2015

When residents of a New York City neighborhood saw a tree disappearing down a hole in the summer of 2012, it was obvious something was amiss. Called to investigate, the Department of Environmental Protection determined the cause to be a collapsed 110 year-old sewer line buried 70 feet below the surface of the street.

Amusing as it may sound, such incidents are not uncommon. Most of our water and wastewater systems were built more than 50 years ago and they are aging. The American Society of Civil Engineers says $4.8 trillion in capital investment is needed over the next 20 years for repairs, and while the EPA estimates a more conservative $600bn and 20 years, there should be no doubt that this is a huge problem.

Change of Epoxy Notification

  • June 1, 2015

To All Affected Customers:

Affected Products: All ChemTec Flow Monitors, Flow Meters and Excess Flow Valves

Effective Date: July 1, 2015

ChemTec will be making a change in the epoxy material which will affect a visual change in the appearance of some products (most noticeably in the LPH Series of flow monitors, see pictures). Please see the accompanying documentation for epoxy specifications. Most products the epoxy change will not be noticeable.

Matching the Material to the Application

  • May 27, 2015

Your company’s reputation depends on how your products perform in-service, and their performance depends on choosing the right material for each component. Use PVC when the application demands stainless steel and you risk failure. Conversely, use stainless when it’s not necessary and you may price your product out of the market.

Application Spotlight: Ozone & Medical

  • May 14, 2015

Now that the hole in the ozone layer is starting to heal, (according to a UNEP press release,) this intriguing molecule has dropped out of the headlines. It’s a pity because ozone’s ability to protect us goes beyond blocking solar ultraviolet radiation.

Ozone (O3) is the three-atom form of oxygen. Whereas the two-atom form is found in the air we breathe, ozone_moleculethe third atom creates a molecule that reacts with almost everything it touches. That makes it a powerful disinfectant, able to destroy bacteria and other toxins. It also means it’s unstable, quickly breaking down to breathable O2. As a result, there’s no ozone distribution industry as there is for other gases. Instead it must be generated at the place where it’s needed.

CNG Market is Anticipated to Reach $129.8 Billion by 2020

  • April 23, 2015

Natural gas is a domestically produced fossil fuel comprised mostly of methane. It is one of the cleanest burning alternatives to gasoline, diesel and propane and it can be used in the form of Compressed Natural Gas and Liquefied Natural Gas to fuel automobiles. CNG and LNG produce fewer undesirable gases than the alternative fuels and are also safer in the event of a spill because the natural gas is lighter and will disperse quickly when released.

Steam Rules: The Future of Power Generation

  • April 15, 2015

Despite all the low energy lightbulbs and high efficiency appliances, demand for electricity is projected to increase over the next 25 years. More air conditioners will be installed in southern states to meet the needs of the growing population and more power will be needed for factories, shops and warehouses. The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) predicts that between 2014 and 2040 residential electricity usage will grow 21%, commercial use by 27% and industrial use by 30%.
