Heat exchangers are important devices that are used in a variety of industries. As their name indicates, these devices transfer heat in order to accomplish various tasks and create specific conditions. Fuel oil heaters and hot water storage tanks are just two types of devices that function due to having a heat exchanger.

The Heat Transfer Process

The Second Law of Thermodynamics describes how a heat transfer occurs between two fluids. Per this law, heat is only able to flow from hotter to cooler fluids. In order for this transfer to take place, the two fluids need to be at different temperatures and come into thermal contact. This process involves convection in each fluid and then conduction through the wall that separates them.

These devices work by transferring heat between the following types of sub

types of shoring for excavation

Excavation and trenching projects can be dangerous. With the risk of collapses and cave-ins, workers can unknowingly be in harm’s way. This is why excavation shoring systems are key. There are several types of shoring for excavations that can keep your crew safe during these types of projects.

When do I need a shoring system?
If you are working in a trench five feet deep or greater, the trench will need a shoring system unless the excavation is made of stable rock. Crews working in trenches 20 feet deep or greater will need to have a professional engineer design the system. While these are the minimum requirements, you can also take precautions with a shoring system if your trench is less deep than these benchmarks.

What factors should I consider when choosing a shoring system?
Soil quality and other environmental conditions are key in determining which shoring system to use. As mentioned above, an excavation made of solid rock will require less protection than one made of moist soil. The soil inside and surrounding the trench should be considered, as should any recent rainfall. To further pinpoint these conditions, your crew should hire an outside professional.

What are the different types of shoring systems?
The following are some of the most common types of shoring types of shoring for excavation available on the market.

  • Hydraulic Shoring: This strut and wale system is often made of steel, making it one of the most durable shoring methods. The braces hold steady against the trench wall and adapt easily to various widths.
  • Timber Shoring: While less popular than hydraulic methods, timber shoring is made out of wood. This is often a less expensive option.
  • Aluminum Shoring: Aluminum is a highly durable material but is lighter weight than steel. For this reason, many construction crews prefer aluminum shoring methods. These materials are easily transported and stored.

Remember: Your crew’s shoring needs will likely vary by project. This is why renting is often a viable option. When you begin a new project, you can rent the system and then start again on the next project. And if you are not sure which shoring method to rent, your equipment rental company can help you decide.

Did you know that many people consider their keyboards to have way more germs than toilet seats? Did you know that workplace environments are some of the most hazardous when it comes to physical health? Did you know that those shared workspaces–desks, elevators, counters–have millions of germs, many of them harmful?

Those may not surprise you. It stands to reason that when any number of people share a space, whether at home or at the job, there is a likelihood that germs will spread quickly, especially in the common areas. Unfortunately, that does not make it any easier to work in that environment, especially if you are someone who is prone to sickness.

Here are some of the ugly statistics surrounding germ-filled workplaces:

Glass melting electrode

Picture a pot of boiling water with a lid covering it. The steam rises to the lid, condenses, and little water droplets form. Now picture a pot of molten metal with a lid covering it. What happens when you heat the pot hot enough? The same process occurs, except the lid, instead of being coated with water gets coated with a layer of evaporated and resolidified metal. When this process is done in a vacuum, the lid will be covered with a smooth coat of resolidified metal. The pot, in this case, is called a crucible, and the lid is the deposition point. If you changed the shape of a crucible to look like a flattened Viking boat and made it smaller, it would be an evaporation boat.

Wait, how do crucibles get hot enough to boil metal?

Different types of metal have different m

Expedited freight

While the trucking industry has long been regarded as a stronghold for manly men, lately it seems like the more lustrous parts of the trucking industry are held to the standard and whims of a changing retail environment, brought about by one-click shipping and an online retail market.

The likes of Amazon and other online retailers changed the way shipping has been played, most notably in terms of quick shipping across the country. And while these online marketplaces have functioned using planes to get their shipments quickly across the country, they still rely on trucks to get those shipments through the states and then the cities.

Quick shipments across the country look like this. Amazon pairs together a company, often a small business, from somewhere in the country to a person in another part of
