PWE looks at a single-source HVAC and building-management control system for an oil sands project that is helping to improve maintenance, streamline the supply chain and keep production running.

Maintaining effective control of humidity is essential in industrial environments for both the health of the building and its occupants and, very often, supporting optimum performance of manufacturing processes. John Barker of Humidity Solutions explains.

Forthcoming European regulations will have an impact on the choice of space heating equipment in the future. Melanie Sadler, Engineering Manager with Powrmatic, provides an overview of the changes to come

Improving the efficiency of electrical conversion and new methods of thermal management may mean that in future motors run far cooler than they do today. But until then, heat dissipation remains a major consideration for designers of motor-driven systems. Bill Bertram, of motor maker Marathon Electric, looks at the state of the art and casts one eye into his crystal ball.

Over a five-year year period, a properly focussed maintenance plan will save at least half the cost of unplanned production stoppages caused by thermal fluid breakdown. However, the frequency of gathering sampling data for a heat transfer fluid, on which the maintenance plan depends, is determined by whether the fluid is mineral or synthetic. Clive Jones, managing director of Global Heat Transfer explains.

With the UK facing pending shortages in energy reserves on the national grid, Leslah Garland spoke with Billy Durie, critical services development manager at Aggreko Northern Europe, about the company’s key services and focus.
