Protect Your Outdoor Industrial Hoses
Monday, April 16, 2018

Industrial hoses are far more than just flexible, durable, reinforced tubes. If your business involves industrial machinery and factories or plants that move fluids around, then you'll understand that industrial hoses are a vital element of your operations. It's therefore essential that any risk of hose failure is kept to an absolute minimum and carefully monitored to avoid costly and unnecessary downtime. This is fairly simple in a controlled environment but what do you do when your hoses have to run outside and are exposed to the harsh and variable elements of nature?  ..

Tea Staining on Stainless Steel
Monday, March 26, 2018

Stainless steel is used as much for its visual appeal as for its resistance to corrosion, which is why many people tend to panic when they notice an unsightly brown discolouration on the surface of their stainless steel applications. There is no real need to fret though. This common occurrence is known as ‘tea staining’ and it does not affect the structural integrity or lifespan of the steel. This cosmetic issue can be avoided with a small amount of proper care and by remembering that stainless steel is ‘low’ maintenance and not maintenance ‘free’. ..

Tips To Prevent Pressure Gauge Failure
Monday, March 19, 2018

Pressure gauges are instruments used to analyse an applied force by a liquid or gas on a surface. This applied force, or pressure, is typically measured in units of force per unit of surface area. A pressure gauge indicates whether or not a system is operating correctly, so it’s a vital component. They don’t require much maintenance, but if not periodically calibrated, pressure gauges will wear out or fail, causing downtime or dangerous malfunctions. ..

Gland Packing For Modern Applications
Monday, February 26, 2018

Gland packing, like a mechanical seal, is a vital element of pumps and shafts, controlling fluid loss and ensuring the successful operation of mechanical equipment. While mechanical seals may be the more popular choice for most applications, they are a very costly investment and not always the most necessary option. Gland packing is cost-effective, easy to install, and made from readily available materials. It is a method that countless engineering applications still rely on today, particularly if corrosive fluids are being handled as the packing will last far longer than a seal.  ..
