Improve your operations with a compressed air dryer

First let’s start by providing some background on compressed air dryers. They are utilised for or removing water vapor from compressed air. Compressed air dryers are commonly found in a wide range of industrial and commercial facilities. The process of air compression concentrates atmospheric contaminants, including water vapor. So in what situation would you need one, and why are they important?

A compressed air dryer is a very useful machine to have to hand in many workplaces. It works to ensure the continuous, optimum productivity of your air compressor, no matter what model you own. Also, it’s important to note that they can be used for a wide range of applications in all compressed air systems. There are also different types of compressed air dryers but the one you choose will of course depend on your application and unique needs. Take desiccant compressed air dryers for example, they use chemical beads to attract water from the compressed air via absorption. This process cleans the air to ensure the highest quality can be produced. This is the most common type, and another popular name associated with desiccant compressed air dryers is regenerative dryers and twin tower dryers. So they are fall under one category, yet there are different types for more specialist applications.

With any compressed air dryer, it’s important to consider energy efficiency, environmentally friendly dryers, such as refrigerant dryers, heatless and heated desiccant dryers as well as HOC dryers. These can deliver maximum performance, ensuring your air compressor functions superbly and operates at peak efficiency, whilst minimising maintenance costs at the same time. With a high capacity refrigeration dryer, for example, you’re guaranteed a high level of energy efficiency, which helps to reduce running costs, thanks to their heat exchanger technology. Speaking of which, choosing a model with an aluminium combination heat exchanger will often deliver great efficiency and performance, with fewer pipe joints for increased reliability, simple controls and clear display and low-pressure losses for great consumption figures. This kind of fryer, much like the others we’ve mentioned, is specifically designed to eliminate the humidity contained in the compressed air through a cooling process.

Of course, price is also going to be important when you’re choosing a new compressed air dryer, especially if it’s your first one and you’re unsure on the costs involved or the kind of model you need. This is exactly why it’s important you do your homework right form the start and ensure that you have a good understanding on the different specifications and features, so you can make a decision you’re 100% happy with. Think about it, to avoid future problems in the compressor installation, the compressed air needs to be treated, but a quality machine will treat your compressor better, so the more you know about the cooling process and the heat exchange, the better educated you will be to make a smart decision for your business and your employees.

Why personalisation is a lot more affordable

Personalisation is more affordable today and it’s because of the improvements made with laser cutting and engraving machines. They’re faster, more powerful, smarter, more precise and much more affordable than they were 10 or 20 years ago.

This has meant that the affordability factor has hit the many online consumer outlets and people can now buy engraved awards, bespoke furniture and personalised gifts at incredibly cheap prices. The wedding industry alone is a good example, and an engraved wedding ring was once a luxury item that only the richest could afford or even think of, but now it’s uncommon to have wedding rings that aren’t engraved, and that just goes to show exactly how much more affordable it is today than it was a couple of decades ago. What’s more even the most basic laser and engraving machines can produce quality items to the highest standards, so small business and ‘one person bands’ are able to get in on the action too.

Is finding a trusted locksmith harder than it seems?

A locksmith is a person who can jump in and save us from the complication of being locked out of our own homes or cars. However, the task of the locksmith can be rather risky too, because they can be looked at distrustfully, as a locksmith has knowledge about entrances in a customer’s house or business. And so, a locksmith should take the correct measures to construct a fantastic image in the field. There is nothing inappropriate in the perceived mistrust surrounding some locksmiths, if they can break into your home and win you back your keys and security, they can break into other homes too. You can only hope a professional locksmith will be committed to helping people and not hindering them. Read More

Working in a warehouse: What you need to know

If you’re looking to work in a warehouse, and think you’re suitable for the role, then that’s great but there may be a few things you need to know first.

In most warehouses, the whole structure of the day is built around a solid plan, so everyone knows exactly what they’re responsible for, and how to conduct each task. As soon as corners are cut or duties are neglected, problems occur. This is why you should be sure to focus on your tasks and stay organised. You should come to work with a clear mind and ensure your workspace is clean and tidy and ready for the day’s work. You must not take on too many responsibilities that aren’t your own. Teamwork is great, but in most warehouses, it’s important you’re focused on your individual tasks, if you neglect those you could be in trouble. If you’re an organised and disciplined individual then you’ll likely thrive in a warehouse, but just take the role seriously and prove you can handle yourself accordingly.

How technology is transforming fast food outlets

If you’ve visited a major fast food outlet in a city recently you have probably noticed just how advanced the ordering systems are. In some major chains, you don’t even need to speak to a member of staff to place your order, you simply select the meal you’d like on an LCD screen and then a receipt is printed with an order number. That number is then called and you can walk up to collect your meal.

It’s crazy to think just how far these chains have come, we’ve moved on so quickly from basic tills that open and close, with waiters holding a pen and paper, to now; a restaurant that requires very little interaction at all. Of course, there is still the opportunity to order your meal at the counter, but the fact that you don’t even have to nowadays goes to show just how far we’ve come and things will only become more automated in the future. Perhaps we won’t even need chefs!

To help remedy this, I have produced a series of Blog Articles showing a step-by-step introduction to Files and Folders.

Starting from the very basics, it gives the novice vital information on how their files are stored, and instructions on how to navigate the Folder system.

Organising the plethora of files that build up in one’s computer can be a daunting task, but with the tips provided here, I hope to make it a little more manageable, teaching you how to Cut and Copy multiple files/Folders at once and navigate quickly between different Folders.

The Summary Page provides a simple Glossary of terms and recaps the lessons we have learned, as well as providing a guide to identify the different types of Files.

Although aimed at complete novices, even more, advanced users may find some useful information here, whether on the use of the Ribbon, right-click sub-menus or Control Keys.
