Don’t lose your bottle…

New design creates problem for production engineers A change in bottle design from a simple, symmetrical shape to an asymmetrical but ergonomic shapes caused problems for a domestic product manufacturer. During the bottle filling process in many manufacturing units, empty plastic bottles are carried in single file on narrow conveyors, similar to those on airport baggage carousels and for many years those bottles have been stabilised on the line by vacuum fans beneath the belt creating a negative pressure, ultimately sucking the bottle securel...

Fan Coil Monitor is Real Cause for Alarm

Tackling The Undetected Failure of Fan Coil Units in H&V The undetected failure of fan coil units is a long standing problem in heating and ventilation.
