Blue Energy Technologies is introducing the SMART Steam Trap, a technology that aims to reduce energy consumption in industrial manufacturing facilities. The technology is a replacement for mechanical steam traps that fail. The company says SMART Steam Traps are more effective because they use venturi technology to collect condensate and block steam. The traps have no moving parts, come with a 20-year performance guarantee, are made from stainless steel.
Fulton Steam Solutions has launched of a new line of electric steam boilers (FB-E series). Suitable for most any application requiring a design pressure of 100 PSI, the boilers can provide operating pressures up to 85 PSI. The FB-E units serve customers requiring efficient, high-quality saturated steam, including laboratories, hospitals, industrial plants, pilot plants, food and chemical processing applications.
Many engineers tend to avoid or delegate the nitty gritty of a ground source heat pump system, from soil moisture effects to building system (im) balance. It's time for designers to get in the loop.
