Energy management and energy conservation start with the ability to monitor power and energy use. For electrical systems, this involves measuring DC or AC power (Watts, VA, VAr) or energy (Wh, VAh, VArh). In fixed installations, digital meters offer a range of display formats, capabilities & sizes. Single display power/energy meters start at $150. Multiple display … Continue reading Green Energy – Meters from Weschler
The incidence and development of explosive hazards are usually described by the so-called explosion triangle. However, it is often overlooked that beyond the three factors: inflammable material, oxygen and an effective source of ignition, a further necessary condition of a specific mixture of oxygen and inflammable material must be given, in order to reach ignition … Continue reading Coal Fired Power Plant – Stahl Explosion Protection
