Welcome to the first-ever Refrigeration Showcase, which includes comprehensive coverage of the different types of equipment

Welcome to the first-ever Refrigeration Showcase, which includes comprehensive coverage of the different types of equipment and controls that contractors typically encounter in the field. From ice machines to reach-ins to controls and components, the Showcase is designed to educate contractors about the new refrigeration products available, so they can help their customers make the right choice for their application. Figuring out which refrigeration equipment or controls package will work best for an application can be challenging. Larger supermarket and restaurant chains often have in-house personnel who make this decision, but they still value the input from their local contractors who service their equipment. Smaller regional stores and restaurants typically do not have these in-house resources, so contractors usually have a larger role in recommending equipment solutions. For both these situations, the Refrigeration Showcase will help contractors learn which ice machine, refrigeration unit, component, and/or control will best serve the needs of their customers. Manufacturers have provided detailed information for the Showcase that includes the benefits end users will experie...

Focus on Rigid LVT: Transforming the resilient flooring market

It’s an innovative flooring solution growing so fast that it can’t be pinned down with a name. It started off as WPC, which stands for wood polymer composite (and not waterproof core), but as producers have started to experiment with the construction and materials, they’ve turned to calling it rigid-core and solid-core LVT to distinguish it from the original Coretec product developed by US Floors. But by whatever name you call it, rigid, multi-layered, waterproof resilient flooring has been the hottest product in the industry for the last couple of years.It has only been four years since US Floors (now owned by Shaw Industries) introduced Coretec, with its LVT cap, wood polymer waterproof core and cork backing. Its original patent, specifying a WPC core, has since been supplemented with broader language to accommodate developments in the category. And last year, US Floors turned to partnerships with Välinge and Unilin to run the licensing, which was a smart maneuver, since the other distinguishing characteristic of this new flooring category is that it almost always features click systems.However, not all producers are falling in line. A handful of companies, including a couple ...

Austenitic stainless steels are softened by solution annealing . Generally, stainless steel pipe and fittings are

Austenitic stainless steels are softened by solution annealing . Generally, stainless steel pipe and fittings are heated to 950 to 1150 degrees Celsius and held for a period of time. The purpose of this is to make the carbides and various alloying elements sufficiently uniformly dissolved in austenite. After that, the steel pipe is rapidly quenched and cooled, and carbon and other alloy elements are too late to precipitate, and a pure austenite structure is obtained, which is called a solution annealing. 1. Make the steel pipe structure and composition uniform, which is especially important for raw materials, because the rolling temperature and cooling rate of each section of the hot-rolled wire are different, resulting in inconsistent microstructure. At high temperatures, atomic activity intensifies, the σ phase dissolves, and the chemical composition tends to be uniform. After cooling, a uniform single-phase structure is obtained. Through the solution treatment, the twisted lattice is restored, the elongated and broken grains are recrystallized, the internal stress is eliminated, the tensile strength of the steel pipe is reduced, and the elongation is increased. Due to cold wo...

The GSX-R’s compact and lightweight engine provides class-leading power that is delivered smoothly and controllably across a broad rpm range. This versatile engine is equally suited for driving hard out of a racetrack corner or accelerating effortlessly onto a public highway. This incredible engine contributes to the GSX-R1000’s compact chassis that delivers nimble handling with excellent front-end feel and braking, as useful for trail-braking on the racetrack as for rolling into tight corners on a country road. Advanced electronic rider aids that aren’t too complicated to use enhance the experience rather than control i...

REC Silicon lays off 100 at Washington polysilicon plant

Polysilicon maker REC Silicon has announced that it will lay off another 100 workers at its Moses Lake facility in Washington State, as the factory heads into long term shutdown. REC Silicon ASA will lay off another 100 workers at its Moses Lake facility in the state of Washington, almost exactly one year after the last round of job cuts at the struggling polysilicon production plant. In a company issued statement, REC Silicon called on the federal government to restore “…open, fair, and unrestricted access for sales of U.S. polysilicon in the Chinese market.” After operating at low utilization rates for more than a year, the plant is now heading into long-term shutdown. REC Silicon originally planned to suspend production at Moses Lake back in March, but has repeatedly extended this deadline, most recently in anticipation of a meeting between U.S. President Trump and Chinese Leader Xi Jinping at the recent G20 Summit in Japan, in the hope of a resolution to the U.S-China trade dispute that would restore its access to the Chinese market. Though it still appears hopeful that trade negotiations will lead to the removal of tariffs on polysilicon imports from the United States into...

FULL LIST: Which tech brands will Amazon Australia launch with?

It’s no secret that Amazon is gearing up for its full retail launch in Australia, with many predicting that the launch will happen on “Black Friday” (which of course happens to be this Friday). Amazon hasn’t formally announced which brands it will launch with down under, although it has already let slip which product categories we’re likely to see when it does expand its local sales operation. But that hasn’t stopped us identifying the big technology brands it will be competing to sell. To produce a list, first we analysed Australia’s major online retailers (JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman, Bing Lee, The Good Guys and Officeworks) and identified the key tech products they sell. Then we examined the clues Amazon has left online to see which of those products it’s planning to sell. Because Amazon hasn’t fully launched in Australia yet, if you head to the amazon.com.au site all you’ll find is the existing storefront for selling ebooks and ereaders such as the new Kindle Oasis. However, behind the scenes Amazon is rolling out some pages which aren’t visible from the main site; there’s an example below. We’ve gathe...

Another Russian Scientist Convicted of Treason – Is Kremlin Silencing Him Due to Possible Knowledge of Losharik?

A Russian court in the Rostov region sentenced a scientist from Novocherkassk, Alexey Temerev, to 7.5 years in a high-security prison for high treason. The case is classified. Nevertheless, upon doing research about the company Temerev owned, I learned he was an intern from Vietnam. However, Vietnam is not known for stealing classified defense sensitive information in Russia. Also, according to the official version, Temerev himself contacted the FSB in 2018 asking permission to sell classified information. Such would be a complete paradox. Also the timing itself is very peculiar. The last wave of convictions shows Putin’s personal interest in gagging a myriad of people ahead of the vote to amendment the Russian Constitution. Overall, Temerev is connected to nearly 46 patents. I took a closer look at the patent database and what patents the Russian scientist held that could be used in the defense sector:  SUBSTANCE: proposed gear has manual winch with antenna cable, stuffing box with cutoff valve and cable machine with frame; mounted on this frame is grip unit with roller holders and toothed belts fitted on smooth pulleys and engageable with toothed belts connected with drive for...
