The premature failure of an underground hydronic piping system is a very expensive problem, and one that is very difficult to correct after installation. With a small amount of effort in the design stage of a project, most of these failures can be easily avoided. Learn how you can improve one basic component of the piping system to greatly enhance its efficiency and longevity.
A “Failure to Start” is one of the top reasons for failures in emergency power systems, and the engine batteries are often found to be the culprit. But why do batteries fail? Can you mitigate the risk of failure? This article will identify typical failure modes, and describe a simple approach for designing additional reliability for the emergency generator’s start system.
A debate is growing over how to implement the new rules affecting nursing homes in Florida. In a nutshell, enforcement of rules may force many nursing homes to install emergency generators, which must be designed to provide air-conditioned space for occupants during a 96-hour period after a power outage. Increasing the amount of stored fuel is the least complicated issue, but it still requires careful coordination to ensure a safe and reliable design.
