Roof Coating Polyshield Revolution

The nowadays science and technology pose a number of challenges for a new generation of polymeric substances and materials. Currently, providing polymers with chemical, physical and mechanical properties such as mechanical strength, elasticity, resistance to corrosion, and so on requires the establishment of a new synthetic material with a predetermined set of properties.

Lime and its products in the construction industry

It is hard to imagine the construction process without the use of special materials. Literally each construction stage requires its own range of materials, the choice of which is due to the requirements for this phase of work. Despite this fact, there are building materials that are used throughout the process of construction of the building, almost regardless of its purpose. Such materials include building dry mixes, which become the basis for the preparation of cement and other materials. (more…)

Trade Secrets Legal Practice In EU & World

Although the secrets of the production are recognised as an effective remedy for the economic interests of entrepreneurs and applied from the times of Roman law (to take at least medieval sailors generously inhabited their memories and maps of various sea monsters will protect a comfortable way to the islands with spices or other treasures), for all that still lack a common understanding and harmonised regulation.

With respect to trade secrets a variety of terms is used production/technical/commercial secrets, confidential/classified information, commercial/official secrets, know-how and some other (we will use these terms as synonyms, unless otherwise indicated). There is no consistent understanding of their legal role and content. Neither there is clarity about whether the secrets can be considered to be intellectual property. Therefore, at the level of individual countries the approaches are significantly different. Take for example a Russian law, which in recent years has expanded the regulation of objects considered as commercial (official) secrets, then switched to production of secrets (know-how) and trade secrets relegating to the level of a simple mode of use.

This burden is oftentimes delegated to special departments or contracting agencies, which overwhelmingly depends on the type of business. Research and innovation companies prefer to gather production and legal forces under one roof. Thus, e.g. Manchester University has created a separate branch, UMIP, to deal with intellectual property aspects and maintain commercialisation.

The essential role of valves in engineering infrastructure

Cozy home must be dry and safe. And those who once experienced all the charms of dealing with consequences of broken pipeline know that the quality of pipeline networks is beyond the notorious savings. Talking about the quality of pipe networks, it is worth recalling that the focus should be not placed only on pipes, but also on connecting valves.

Let us have a more detailed look at ball valves, the devices that are used almost everywhere today, in all the pipeline networks designed for the transport or distribution of liquid and gaseous media. Valves will close, open or redirect the flow of fluid. For many years valves have undergone many changes from the unpretentious valves to ball valves, which now occupy the leading position in the market of pipeline valves.

The scope of use

The scope of the ball valves use is truly extensive: these devices are successfully used in heating systems, water and gas stations, both on domestic and on the larger scale production level. Another aspect of use is installation of ball valves near the base of risers (e.g., fire or drinking water cranes and other systems), as well as at each branch from the main pipeline. Ball valves are ideal for use in pipelines transporting oil, corrosive environments, as well as industrial and drain water and food solutions. The commercial interest in these devices is confirmed by the recent trends – thus, Orseal, a prominent engineering equipment manufacturer, has recently launched a production lineup of ball valves and industrial ball valves, claiming the demand for the quality products in the UK is booming.

Most people are quite familiar with conventional ball valves by accident. Ball valve can be sure to meet almost every home, which has modern appliances: washing machines, dishwashers, etc. In this case, the ball valve is installed on the liner to the equipment and appliances; and in most cases, in a residential area installation of the ball valve on the water pipe is produced in association with a fine filter. Because of this, the water used for cooking and other household needs, it becomes much cleaner.

The principle of operation

Ball valves are designed for complete shut-off of the working environment and are not used for its adjustment. If you want to ball valve has served you for many years, it is necessary to use it exactly as it is designed to, in accordance with the rules laid down in the instructions.

The principle of operation of the ball valve relies on overlapping the medium flow by locking element. The locking element is a ball valve with a through ball cylindrical bore. By turning the locking element on its axis – perpendicular relative to the stationary housing of the ball valve – there is an opening, or blocking the flow of fluid. Regarding the form of the holes, it may be not only circular, but also trapezoidal, rectangular or oval. The size of the opening of the locking mechanism is also different depending on the scope of application of the device and the parameters of the pipeline network.

Depending on the size and destination valving locking member of the ball valve can be sealed in two main ways:

  • floating ball valves (small ball valves)
  • ball on supports (for ball valves with a large diameter)

In some cases, ball valves are used with additional sealing rings. Opening and closing of the ball valve is made by turning the handle by 90°.

Ultrasonic Cleaning In Vehicles Repairing

Ultrasonic rinsing with dismantling nozzles primarily applied to the injectors, and the key point here is the use of ultrasound technology. After the initial inspection of nozzles on the stand before ultrasonic cleaning it is recommended to blow each nozzle with compressed air at low pressure (1-1.5 bar) to remove any remaining liquid and exfoliated debris from the nozzle before starting the following procedure.
