On-Site Paper Shredding For Security

Written by Small Business Magazine on September 25th, 2018. Posted in Document disposal, Portland paper shredding, Shredding services

Information security is a bigger concern than ever, both with paper documents and electronic files. Corporate espionage, hacking, identify theft, and other crimes are carried out through the medium of digital and physical paper documents, such as financial reports and personnel files. In the wrong hands, this information can spell disaster for any big or small business or private individual. Identity theft is particularly common in the United States: in 2016, one out of every 16 American adults was the victim of this crime, and incidents of identity theft climbed 16% from 2015 to 2016, and may continue to grow from there. It is a big business, with $50 billion a year made from this crime, and corporate identity theft costs businesses $48 per year. It is clear, then, that good security is needed to prevent this devastating crime from ruining someone’s personal finances or those of a whole company, and on site document shredding, or to purge documents, is a solid solution.

Despite today’s proliferation of wireless technology such as cordless phones and computer headsets, wires of all types are still integral to all kinds of electronics and the industries that use them. Computers, flat-screen TVs, heating and air conditioning systems, cars, and planes, among other things, need wires and cables to run, and the right sleeving for the job is vital for success. A cable or wire may also need crimpers to be ready for work, and some extremes of heat and pressure call for heat treatment fiberglass sleeving. What’s the right cable for the job?

Tough Cables For Work

Let us first consider the heavy stuff, cables and wires used for serious work. Some machines and appliances deal with extremes of pressure, tension, and most of all temperature during their operation, and the wires inside need to be protected. Heat treatment fiberglass sleeving is one such option. A car’s or airplane’s engine, for example, will run very hot, and wires need tough protection

The Three Most Important Factors to Consider Before Choosing a Centrifugal Fan

Written by Small Business Magazine on September 19th, 2018. Posted in Air knife blower systems, Blower manufacturers, Centrifugal fan vs axial fan

Centrifugal fans and blowers have been part of our world since at least the 16th century, when they were used to ventilate mines. Today, they’re one of the most common types of fans used in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning, in addition to being some of the most efficient and versatile. By displacing air radially, these fans are able to change the direction of any given airflow by 90 degrees.

However, not all centrifugal fans are made the same. Each has specific applications it’s most suited to. With that in mind, here are the most essential factors your air handling manufacturer should know about:

Centrifugal fan vs axial fan: Know the difference

The first step to knowing which type of fan is best for your air ventilation equipment is knowing the best uses for centrifugal and axial fans. As stated above, centrifugal blowers and fans move air 90 degrees, while axial fans move air parallel to the shaft in which the fan is located.

Water is Essential to Life, So Keep it Clean

Planet Earth has often been called a “water world,” and for good reason. It is well-known that three-quarters of the Earth’s surface is covered with oceans and other bodies of this liquid, from the Great Lakes of North America to Lake Chad to the Caspian Sea. But there’s only so much to go around. Out of all of that, only 3% of it is fresh (non-salty), and 1% of it all is fit to drink. There are plenty of thirsty mouths on the planet, not to mention industrial use for fresh water. Keeping that liquid clean and usable is more important than ever, and there are several methods on hand.

What Goes in the Water?

Even though it is “fresh,” many natural and man-made contaminants means there is polluted water everywhere. Some species of bacteria are common in contaminated liquid, such as salmonella. This disease enters a system via animal waste, and can cause multiple symptoms such as cramps and fever, according to Continue Reading No Comments

Natural Disasters Like Tropical Storms Require Careful Attention to DOT Guidelines

Written by Small Business Magazine on September 13th, 2018. Posted in Bloodborne training, Dot training course, Hazardous waste management certification training

As the east coast, and specifically the state of North Carolina, braces for Tropical Storm Florence later this week, it should come as no surprise that there are many emergency procedures in place and that the area Departments of Transportation (DOT) are doing everything they can to facilitate the safe and timely evacuation of more than 1 million people who have been asked to leave their homes. In addition to the people leaving the area, however, there are also many companies who are doing everything within their power to make sure that both dangerous and valuable inventories are also moved to much safer locations. For this reason, there are a number of DOT hazmat certifications that are in place and these still need to be followed even as the storm approaches.
Shipping hazardous materials always involves a number of permits and certifications, but in times of natural disasters, when there are so many private motorists on the road, DOT hazmant training is especially important.
