Even if a sample of lubricant looks clean to the naked eye, it may contain an abundance of microscopic particles. Such particles can include dirt, sand, metal particles, dust, and more, and there are numerous potential sources.
Luckily, you can always have a high-velocity oil flush (HVOF) performed to remove contaminating particles and keep your machinery running in prime condition. To understand why that is such an important maintenance job, read on to discover four common dangers of particle contamination. Read More»
There are many key pieces of equipment that are essential for a commercial kitchen to function efficiently and effectively. Here are some of the most important pieces of equipment that you will likely need in your commercial kitchen:

Coating surfaces with powder has become a common way to finish parts during and after manufacturing. The coating powder comprises well-ground resin particles and pigment. It might also have additives that add to the gloss or hardness of the finish. Only professionals with the right equipment can do the powder coating process satisfactorily. Here are some top reasons to consider powder-coating in the fabrication process.
The Process Is Efficient
Painting is one of the parts of the production process that can lead to massive wastage. Read More»
You wouldn’t dream of sandblasting something inside a building without taking care to contain the debris that the sandblasting can throw out. But sandblasting outside seems like a different situation, where a little debris escaping and blowing away doesn’t seem so bad. That’s actually not the case; debris containment outside is just as important, if not more important, than debris containment inside. If you’re trying to hire a construction or demolition crew that will need to do some sandblasting, don’t assume they can just get right to work; they’ll need time to plan for good containment.

If you need to set up a secure entrance area in a commercial building, then you might want to install some screening. While glass seems the obvious choice here, Perspex screens are a viable alternative.
Perspex has the clarity of glass and some advantages over it. What are they?
1. Extra Strength
Even toughened security glass has some weaknesses. This glass is hard to break but it isn’t unbreakable. With enough effort, someone can break and breach a glass screen. Read More»
When it comes to metal fabrication projects, metal fabricators have dozens of different kinds of metals and alloys they can work with. Each metal or alloy metal has unique physical and mechanical properties that lend themselves to particular applications and not others.
With such a wide variety of metals to choose from, have you ever wondered why some metals are preferred over others?
Steel is one of the most popular materials used for metal fabrication. Read More»
Industrial equipment is expensive. And this unsurprising when you take into account the heavy-duty applications that the machinery is employed in. Not to mention the abrasive environments that they are exposed to in the form of high heat, toxic chemicals and more! One type of equipment that is integral for any industrial business that requires heated water for its operations is an industrial steam boiler. And while these boilers are designed with durability and longevity in mind, you should know that they are not immune to eventual deterioration. Read More»
