We know many distributors, engineers and customers have the knowledge needed to select the right valve for their application. But, if you’ve got questions and want to save time, we recommend you download and read our new white paper, “A Guide to Selecting an Excess Flow Valve,” to make sure you’ve completed the checklist.
Our flow monitors, meters and valves find their way into a very diverse range of applications. Equipment designers choose them primarily for their performance, but minimizing the total cost of ownership is usually a concern too.
Those in California have been doing a great job of reducing their water usage, but there’s still a major shortage. Worldwide, water is becoming a precious commodity, which may seem strange when two thirds of the globe is covered in it.
With supply exceeding demand, producing the silicon panels for photovoltaic (PV) power generation has been an intensely competitive business for several years. There are however reports that a turnaround is underway. Solar industry observers like Greentech Media (GTM) state that with capacity growing only slowly, manufacturers are beginning to see signs of better margins ahead.
For most of us, the air we breathe is cleaner now than it was a decade ago. That’s good news, but it does depend on where you live. The American Lung Association’s (ALA) 2015 “State of the Air” report says, “Nearly 138.5 million people—almost 44 percent of the nation—live where pollution levels are too often dangerous to breathe.” The situation is especially bad in the western USA, with many urban areas in California suffering high levels of air pollution.
Gas producer, Air Products (AP), recently unveiled a solar-powered hydrogen fueling station. Their SmartFuel® technology uses electrolysis to make hydrogen from water, so providing fuel cell vehicles with power that’s truly ‘green.’
Fuel cells, which produce electricity by combining hydrogen and oxygen, offer a tantalizing glimpse of an oil-free future. An alternative to carrying heavy batteries, a fuel cell-powered car needs only a supply of hydrogen to generate all the energy it needs.
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?
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.
