The Benefits of Selecting Copeland Refrigeration Compressors...

Posted by , on Dec, 2016

For any type of commercial or industrial building or application, choosing the correct components for your refrigeration and air conditioning systems is going to be critical. These components need to be reliable, effective and built to stand up to continuous use in all types of demanding conditions. Copeland refrigeration compressors have long been a go-to option for commercial refrigeration systems when dependability and reliability are key. Unlike some components, they are designed with a combination of simplicity and efficiency. This combination reduces the risk of wear and tear on moving parts while also providing the cooling effectiveness you need for small or large areas or storage. Cost Savings Operating Copeland refrigeration compressors translates into increased cost savings over time. With the streamlined and basic design, there are fewer issues with either the mechanical or the electric components of the compressors. Less complex systems mean fewer repairs over the lifecycle of the compressor, helping to reduce costs. Additionally, the Copeland compressors for refrigeration systems are also a great option to save money on a replacement. These can be easily remanufactured by a quality compressor remanufacturing company, resulting in a like-new compressor at a fraction of the price of a new purchase. Scroll Compressors Save Space Many of the top models of Copeland refrigeration compressors are scroll compressors. These use an auger or scrolling type of system to move the refrigerant, limiting the need for valves and complicating systems to draw the refrigerant through the system. The result is a highly efficient system that is also much more compact than other compressors with the same output capabilities. The lower noise and the decreased vibration of these types of compressors is also an important advantage to consider. Loud systems can contribute to substantially to the lower working quality of any space while the quieter systems work in the background without the added noise. Be the first to like. Like...

Use Grain Dryers in Oregon to Prepare Grain for Storage...

Posted by Kim kimball , on Oct, 2016

There are several crops that are considered cornerstone crops that stand between survival and the starvation of human kind. These include wheat and other types of grains. Grains are not only incredibly important for human consumption but are also vital nutrient supplements for animal feed. Between humans and animals, the world has to produce a lot of grain every year. There are several problems that have to be addressed before people can start making their wheat bread. The most important are harvest and storage of the grains. When it comes to harvesting grain, it is quite simple. Unlike a century ago, modern farms are able to make use of massive machines that can harvest a hundred acres of wheat in a day. However, this is where some of the problems begin to present themselves. When storing grain, the water content of each grain must be stringently checked for a couple of reasons. The first is because storage is limited, and grains naturally have a lot of water in them. This means that there is less space for more grains. The second reason is because this water can lead to a moist environment that is perfect for cultivating many different types of mold in the grains. This can lead to a huge problem because it is hard to keep a mold problem under control. It will only take a few days for a mold culture to spread to the entire silo. Because of this, many producers implement Grain Dryers in Oregon to lower the water content so there are not as many problems with storage of the grain. Everyone loves bread. On its own it can be tasty, filling, and satisfying, or it can be turned into a sandwich that is infinitely more so. However, no one will be eating that bread unless the world is having a good grain harvest and subsequent storage. Using machines make the entire process from field to counter so much easier, like how to lower the water content so there can be more storage and less chance of mold.

Do You Demand UL Listed Fire Pumps In Houston, TX?

Posted by , on Aug, 2016

If you have responsibility for safety in any type of medium to large establishment, fire protection will be part of your duties. While the likes of chemical extinguishers and blanketing gases have their specialized roles to play (especially in electrical fires), it is water that is the main extinguisher of the majority of larger fires. Sometimes, the local piped water supply has sufficient capacity and pressure to be used to fight a blaze through hydrants and sprinkler systems. However, this is by no means always the case. Using Your Own Water For Fighting Conflagrations Whether your intention is to augment local supply pressure/velocity or, you need to hold your own supply in a tank or pond ready to feed to hydrant hose points and sprinkler valves throughout the premises that you are defending – you will need at least one pump. Most likely this will be of the split casing type (horizontal or vertical) but vertical in line or turbine can also be used. Apart from regular testing, it is to be hoped that this equipment will never be used. But, when it is needed, it is 100% essential that it starts operating immediately. Monitoring Sprinkler systems start spraying the moment they detect flame below them but that water must be immediately replaced in the main running throughout the premises, in other words, new water must be fed in. Jockey pumps provide pressure at the sprinkler and monitoring their pressure automatically actuates the main fire pump. Insurance Insurance is taken out by everyone sensible but you may find that you are not covered if any of your fire protection systems do not meet the strict requirements of UL testing, approval and listing. UL was previously known as Underwriters Laboratory. Flow-Tech Industries is the distributer of UL listed fire pumps for Houston, TX. They supply the full line of approved Aurora Pumps which have an 80 year record of excellent service. Follow them on Facebook. 2 people like this post. Like...

Knowing Your Pump Brand, Model and Size is Important...

Posted by , on Jun, 2016

There are definite benefits to owning an ANSI pump.  One is being able to buy parts or a replacement part from any dealer you want.  Just as if you went to the auto parts store for a part you would need to know the make, model, and year of your vehicle. With a pump, you need to know your pump brand, size, and model to be sure that the parts you buy will work in your existing pump. Parts Might not be Compatible The pump unit of an ANSI pump might be compatible between brands, but there is nothing to say that the individual parts making up the pump are interchangeable.  Do some research before you buy a replacement part and be 100% sure that it will work with your pump. Vendor model numbers are how you can tell if you are getting an ANSI pump.  You also need to pay very close attention to any letters or suffixes on the end of the model number.  It could mean that it is a special model with parts that might not work with any other models available.  You will find that there are parts that do work with many of the models, most notably the power end. The Pumps Come in Different Sizes Since the pumps come in differing sizes it only stands to reason that replacement parts will as well.  Pumps sizes range from STX to XLTX like small, medium, large and extra-large.  Every size in the line has an impeller and casing.  When it comes to the rear cover and adapter, they can be shared by the sizes.   If you need new ANSI pumps in Houston, TX, or replacement parts, Flow-Tech Industries can meet all your needs in that department.

Tips For Buying Refrigeration Compressor Parts

Posted by , on May, 2016

When it comes to the large, commercial compressors, breakdowns are always a big problem that can end up costing a company hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost product and business even with just short downtime. When these types of breakdowns do occur, many companies make the decision to choose to buy refrigeration compressor parts and attempt to have their maintenance team complete the repairs. Unfortunately, this is often the most costly possible option for repair both in the downtime experienced as well as in long-term maintenance and repair of the compressor. The Problems There are several important considerations when choosing the option to buy refrigeration compressor parts and complete the repair in-house. The biggest problem is finding the parts quickly and also ensuring all necessary parts are ordered for the repair. Finding the professionals with the experience and expertise in refrigeration repair in-house is another problem. As it only makes sense to completely check out the unit and replace any other worn or potentially stressed parts with new or like-new parts at the same time, having trained technician is important. Typically in-house repair staff is not going to have the experience working with the specific type of compressor to know what specifically to look for. The Solution One simple solution to these problems, especially if there are several refrigeration compressor parts that need to be purchased and replaced, is to choose a remanufactured air compressor. This allows you to choose the same make and model refrigeration compressor, or even upgrade to a newer model or a larger capacity option. With a remanufactured model, you will receive a like-new compressor with fully tested new or recycled parts, depending on the specific component. The recycled parts are carefully tested to ensure they meet all OEM part specifications. However, as this is a remanufactured system, it is a lot less expensive, helping you to fit the replacement into your budget. Additionally, some of the top companies that complete the remanufacturing process will accept your current refrigeration compressor to partially offset the cost of the remanufactured model providing it meets general requirements. The result is a fully functioning, tested and warranted refrigeration compressor that can be dropped into place. With shipping available in one to three days for more national orders, this is a very cost-effective way to ensure your compressor will be ready to run and all components will be completely tested to prevent additional downtime that can occur if basic repairs are completed in-house. At Compressors Unlimited International, LLC we provide remanufactured compressors using new and recycled refrigeration compressor parts....
