Google has described Google+ as a social layer that enhances many of its existing online properties. It is promoted not as just another social networking website, but as an authorship tool that associates web content directly with its owner or author. Google+ launched in June 2011, and in less than three years has become the world's second-largest social site after Facebook.
Heyl & Patterson created the first conference specifically for users of railcar dumping systems in 1984. Thirty years later, the event still brings users together for industry best practices, product updates, training, roundtables and social networking. Attendees have access to Heyl & Patterson engineers and technicians to discuss up-to-date techniques and processes for efficient operations. The exchange of ideas is second to none, and dialogue revolves around actual problems and realistic solutions.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Pittsburgh, PA – Heyl & Patterson Inc., a world leader in thermal processing and bulk material handling systems, today announced the signing of an exclusive partnership with BHJD Mining Engineering & Technology (Beijing) LLC, an equipment procurement and construction (EPC) company based in Beijing, China, that specializes in coal preparation plants.
Bitterly cold temperatures keep people indoors, but it's largely business as usual for the unloading of bulk materials. Even in the extreme cold, the work still needs to be done. As temperatures drop, materials such as coal, coke, lignite, iron ore and wood chips tend to clump together as the water moisture they contain turns to ice. In the case of coal, a load can freeze nearly solid if the haul is more than one day away from its receiving station.
Power generation comes from a variety of heat-producing sources: oil, natural gas, nuclear, geothermal, wind, solar and of course, coal. The heat boils water and creates steam. The steam, under high pressure, spins a turbine. The turbine interacts with a series of magnets to produce electricity, which is transmitted as moving electrons through a series of wires to homes and businesses.
Coal is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat through combustion. World coal consumption was 7.99 billion tons in 2010, and is expected to increase 48% to about 9.98 billion tons by 2030. Coal can be delivered by truck, rail, barge or ship, and some power plants are even situated near coal mines so coal can be delivered by conveyor systems.
Railways have existed in India since 1853, and several organizations have enforced standardization among the various railway systems over time. Since 1957, the Research Designs and Standards Organization (RDSO) has been the sole authority operating under the India Ministry of Railways. The latest rule to standardize Indian railways is the RDSO's G-33 Rev 1 Requirements. The "G-33" part of the title represents a mix of new and existing rules that are specific to Wagon Tipplers along the railroads.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Pittsburgh, PA – Heyl & Patterson Inc., a world leader in thermal processing systems and bulk materials handling, has received a Golden Triangle Award from the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Pittsburgh Chapter during its annual competition.
Activated carbon is a form of carbon that is riddled with tiny pores that increase its surface area, making more of it available for chemical reactions. This porous, highly adsorptive material is used to remove color or impurities from liquids and gases, in the separation and extraction of chemical compounds, and in the recovery of solvents. In other terms, activated carbon is used in water filtration, gas purification, sewage treatment and metal extraction. It is most commonly found in the filters of aquariums, respirators and gas masks, and is used to treat poison following oral ingestion.
