Although use of grease guns is widespread, these tools deserve respect and should be used in

Although use of grease guns is widespread, these tools deserve respect and should be used in accordance with the manufacturer’s safety guidelines to avoid injury. There are four main types of grease guns on the market: manual, battery-operated, air-powered and AC electric. Each type has its own specific set of guidelines, but many general rules are applicable to all, such as training, proper tool use and care, work area safety and personal safety. Manual grease guns include lever-action and pistol-grip models. These popular tools are widely used and are the most economical type of grease gun. Manual grease guns can achieve pressures up to 10,000 pounds per square inch (psi), while plug-valve sealant guns can reach 15,000 psi. Battery-operated grease guns are ideal for speeding up routine lubrication tasks. Using this type of grease gun can also help to minimize operator fatigue. These grease guns are rated anywhere from 6,000 to 10,000 psi, depending on the model. Air-powered or pneumatic grease guns use compressed air to apply pressure to an air piston, which drives the grease piston and forces lubricant out of the coupler into a grease fitting. By depressing the gun’s trigger,...

The $5M track-focused Pagani Imola isn’t supposed to be elegant

The Pagani Imola, a track-focused version of the Pagani Huayra, first broke cover in September, 2019, at an event, but official information was nowhere to be found. It took a few months, but today, Pagani released the first batch of real images and gave fans the specs they’ve been waiting for.  With a pre-tax price tag of $5.4 million by today’s conversion rates, the Imola will be limited to only five examples, and Pagani says every car is already spoken for. The car is named for the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari racetrack in Imola, Italy, outside Bologna. There, the car logged roughly 3,728 miles during testing and validation, which the company says was the most severe tuning process ever conducted for a Pagani vehicle.  Immediately noticeable are the car’s aerodynamics and fierce looks. A rear spine gives the Imola a new technical profile, several new deflectors and inlets interrupt any hope for smooth lines, and the rear could double as a geometric abstract drawing. Founder and Chief Designer of Pagani Automobili Horacio Pagani even admitted in the press release, “We can’t say that it’s an elegant car. We wanted an efficient vehicle.”  Pagani bil...

Want more construction news and views from the Middle East? Sign up now to receive our specially curated newsletters. Construction work on The Pangolin – a two-floor, 8,225m2 multi-restaurant lifestyle complex at The Els Club in Dubai Sports City – is 85% complete, with doors to open by March 2020. The Pangolin comprises a ground floor restaurant; a first floor restaurant and lounge with a bar offering; a terrace for lunch and dinner; as well as a gym, and a pool. Sergio Lopez, the founder and chief executive officer of The Pangolin Group says: “The ground will also have a deli area, which not many people have here, comprising two fridges for curing meats and cheese. We had to customise the construction of the fridges to ensure that the humidity and temperature was perfect for the tasks at hand. The building will also have an on-site bakery and patisserie.” The complex, which covers a built-up area (BUA) of more than 2,258m2, was built by UAE-based contractor Span Steel Construction in partnership with The Pangolin Group, who were chosen by Dubai Sports City to work on the building. “We worked very closely with Span Steel Construction, as they worked on the shell and core for us...

Father-daughter duo fight for healthy hearts | Herald Community Newspapers

Anthony Bevilacqua takes pride in teaching his children Gabriella, 6, and Anthony Jr., 2, about the importance of helping others. He hosted his first fundraiser at his East Meadow gym, AB Fitness Center, last year in honor of National Heart Month. Dubbed the Great American Heart Charity Workout, the fitness center hosted 30-minute workout sessions at $50 each and raised a total of $4,000 that they donated to the American Heart Association. In a twist of fate, Gabriella’s first-grade class at McVey Elementary School is hosting its own fundraiser for the same cause this year. As of press time on Tuesday, the school has raised $9,933 of its $20,000 goal on its fundraising page at https://bit.ly/2P5iyiS. The school will be collecting donations through March 9. Bevilacqua said he had a “light-bulb” parenting moment when Gabriella came home with a donation flyer and saw the perfect opportunity to help his daughter and her classmates with their fundraising mission. AB Fitness Center is hosting its second charity workout on Feb. 22 with two different sessions, one at 11 a.m. and another at 11:30 a.m. The minimum donation to participate is $20 and all proceeds go to the American Heart As...

Sokoman Minerals Provides Phase 5 Exploration Update

ST. JOHN’S, NL / ACCESSWIRE / February 27, 2020 / Sokoman Minerals Corp. (SIC.V)(SICNF) (the “Company” or “Sokoman”) is pleased to provide the following exploration update and to announce that the 3-D model of the Moosehead mineralized zones, incorporating the Western and Eastern Trends, has been finalized and can now be viewed on the Company website under the Investors – Media tab. The Phase 5 drilling program is underway with one rig testing the down-plunge extensions of the Eastern Trend, based on the 3-D modelling. Ice-making is ongoing on North Pond to allow drilling from the ice, with a second drill rig, to test the up-plunge potential of the northern extension of the Eastern Trend. At present, weather conditions are not ideal for making a new ice layer, so the Company is working with the contractor to secure a lighter drill that can be used at the current ice thickness. As of Feb. 26, four drill holes have been completed from the east side of North Pond and the first shipment of core samples (180 in total, including blanks and standards) have been sent to Eastern Analytical Ltd. in Springdale, NL, for Au and ICP analysis. Gold will be a...

Ruling allows California to start enforcing efficiency standards for light bulbs

California can start enforcing its new efficiency standards for light bulbs, over industry objections, while fighting the Trump administration’s attempt to roll back similar standards for the rest of the nation, a federal judge ruled Tuesday. The new rules, effective Wednesday, require most types of newly sold light bulbs to emit at least 45 lumens of light for each watt of electricity they burn. That will ban sales of standard incandescent bulbs, which produce 15 to 20 lumens per watt, and halogen bulbs, which are in the same range. Fluorescent bulbs emit more than 60 lumens per watt, and LEDs, or light-emitting diodes, generate more than 80 lumens. Both cost more than incandescent lights but last much longer. The 45-lumens-per-watt standard had been scheduled to take effect nationwide Wednesday, but was blocked by the Trump administration. California, 14 other states and the District of Columbia filed a lawsuit in November challenging the rollbacks for five types of light bulbs: three-way incandescent lamps, shatter-resistant bulbs, floodlights, candelabra bulbs and incandescent reflector lamps, all added to the efficiency list by President Barack Obama’s Energy Department, as...

Best 3D printers of 2020: Find the right printer for your business needs

Which 3D printer is right for your business? We’ve evaluated the offerings of 14 leading printers, all capable of creating 3D objects, but with a wide-range of characteristics. If you’re in the market for a 3D printer, you’ll find one here that fits your needs. Initially relegated to large industrial processes, they experienced a bit of a boom in the mid-2010s, when the technology became affordable to small offices, design firms, and hobbyists. Since then, 3D printers have evolved along with a number of vectors. Low cost, high-resolution resin printers have joined filament-based (or FDM) printers in the home and hobbyist market. Printers with large print areas have become available at both the low and high end, with lower-end printers optimizing for the very basic heated plates needed for large prints, while the higher-end solutions add sealed chambers, temperature management, and cameras. Printers with dual extruders are becoming more common, and the slicing software needed to prepare prints is becoming more sophisticated. We’re also starting to see more full color and metal printing. In this guide, we award best-of-show for a range of printer categories...

What It’s Like To Go On Workers’ Comp At Age 24

As a fresh college grad, I began my career as an Art Director at an experiential advertising agency in New York City. It was the ideal way to kick off my career — a work hard/play hard mentality, organized happy hours, business travel, and coworkers you’d actually want to hang out with outside of work. It was all fun and games until someone got hurt…and that someone happened to be me. I was working at an event that my company hosted for our client during the Tennis U.S. Open. As I was getting ready to leave the event, I stepped off a curb onto uneven pavement in the dark, royally messing up my foot with an unsettling crack. Embarrassed and with too much pride, I (regrettably) managed to limp my way home to New Jersey via public transportation instead of hailing an Uber. The next day, a doctor informed me that my fifth metatarsal was fractured. Quick explainer: Your fifth metatarsal controls a tendon that goes up your leg, so it was extremely important for me to stay off of my foot. If I chose to ignore the doctor’s orders and walked around with the pain, the tendon would have pulled the fracture further apart. I didn’t walk for four months, followed by two mont...

New Decorative Lighting Products for Summer 2019 | 2019-08-08

While its style was inspired by a 1950s Italian design, the Ludo wall sconce is made in America—now. New York manufacturer Blueprint Lighting designed the 11″ x 6″ brass and spun-aluminum fixture to swivel, providing up- and downlight. It works with incandescent E12 candelabra- base lamps up to 40W or their LED alternatives. Options include 36 standard enamel colors, custom hues, and hardwired or plug-in versions. Eaton Lighting partnered with felt-products manufacturer FilzFelt on a line of 3000K–4000K luminaires that also control sound. The Shaper Sense series combines FilzFelt’s 100% wool felt with Eaton’s edge-lit acrylic panels to form box-, trapezoid- and drum-shaped pendants. All are open on top, providing two-way illumination as well as improving daylight penetration when the sun is out. Shaper Sense works with Eaton’s wireless control systems. Sonneman’s blown-glass LED pendant Mela, which means apple in Italian, is made more dynamic by its dichroic surface and fruit-like etched acrylic core. Offered in three sizes, the large (15″ x 13¾”), medium (11″ x 10¼”), and small (7½” x 7″) versions deliver the same warm, dimmable 3...

Textile mills need to give priority to compressed air savings

Please fill in your details to download the Table of Contents of this report for free. We also do customization of these reports so you can write to us at mi@fibre2fashion.com in case you need any other additional information. Textile mills are aware that of the total electricity units consumed per day towards compressed air, they are losing more than 30 per cent to compressed air leakage, says Ashok Sethuraman Energy savings are a major issue in the functioning cycle of a textile mill. In the total electricity units consumed per day (UPD), the mill can reduce only around five to 10 per cent of UPD after energy audit and implementation. Compressed air leakage is a regular hidden cost in a mill. If not identified right away, it aggravates losses. When a mill goes for modernisation, automated production demands more compressed air. So, instead of arresting existing air leakage, mills often buy more compressors to satisfy production demands. Ironically, leakage increases. The root cause is accumulation of water and dirt in compressed air pipe lines. This makes pneumatic fittings weak and leaky. A pneumatic fitting and component has a life. Beyond its life, leaks start. Soon, a dri...
