  • Applications for High Frequency Electrical Induction

    Electrical induction is used in many applications, including welding, bending, heating and hardening processes. High frequency induction transfers energy at an efficient rate compared with lower frequency processes, and this means it is preferred in a number of industrial settings in Australia nowadays. Hardening High frequency electrical charges are induced in the process of induction hardening. A metalworking process, this procedure uses martensitic transformation in the metal itself to create a tougher and more durable layer in the metal. [Read More]

  • Wooden Flooring: Installing Builders' Film for Optimal Protection

    Builders' film is an important material in the construction industry, and it can be used for numerous types of applications. In general, the sheet is made using polyethylene, a strong plastic material. The most beneficial property of the film is its low level of biodegradability. This aspect means that the plastic is impermeable to water and will not be changed due to prolonged exposure to moisture. One of the important uses of PE builders' film is as a vapour barrier for wooden floors. [Read More]

  • Understanding the General Design of Cooling Towers

    The use of cooling towers in industrial facilities such as power stations, food processing plants, and petrochemical plants is commonplace. During industrial applications, cooling towers are used to absorb the excess heat that is usually produced. But that does not mean the use of cooling towers is only restricted to industrial applications, as these cooling systems are also used to provide cooled water for residential and commercial air-conditioning. However, unlike industrial facilities, which usually use an in-house team of engineers and technicians to install and maintain their cooling towers, many homeowners and businesses in Australia are oblivious to the overall design and general operation of their cooling tower installations.
