CECO's rMAX Valve Proven in High-Speed Applications

23.03.10
PrintE-mail
/ EINPresswire.com / HOUSTON, TEXAS. March 16, 2010 - After demonstrating its reliability and effectiveness in the field, CECO's rMAX valve (patent pending) is becoming the replacement valve of choice for high-speed compressor operators looking for longer valve life while matching the flow of plate valves. The CECO rMAX valve will run much longer than conventional plate valves, especially in "dirty" or "wet gas" applications. High-speed compressor operators who have previously had to replace or rebuild plate valves several times a year will find the rMAX valve can eliminate costly down-time. "We have been perfecting the rMAX for years," said Gene Thompson, CECO's Vice-President for Engineering. "Our customers had been asking for a more durable high-speed valve, and we applied our expertise in poppet valves to the solution," he said. When the rMAX was in development, CenterPoint Energy contacted CECO about an unusually high valve failure rate at one of their compressor stations. CenterPoint's compressor specialist and mechanical personnel, along with CECO's representative, determined that contaminates in the gas stream were causing station hands to replace or repair valves frequently - sometimes as often as every one or two weeks. CECO engineers suggested that CenterPoint install the rMAX valves. Now, two years later, the rMAX high-speed poppet valves are "still going strong," CenterPoint's Brad Goodwin said. "That's reliability." The design, manufacture and materials of the rMAX contribute to its reliability. "The rMAX valves are fully-machined and we developed state-of-the-art composite poppet materials for reliability even in adverse conditions. We have a long-life valve with maximum flow areas. The CECO rMAX valve is adaptive to many different applications and environments because of our ability to effectively control its flow," Thompson said. CECO is the world's largest independent manufacturer of engine and compressor replacement parts. Customers include gas pipelines, gathering and processing companies, petrochemical, industrial and refrigeration plants worldwide. In addition, CECO Pipeline Services offers new construction and a variety of maintenance services to pipeline operators. CECO Training & Technical Services specializes in testing, training and consulting services to compressor and engine operators. CECO, headquartered in Houston, also has facilities in Odessa, Texas, Irondale, Alabama and Walker, Louisiana. More information about CECO is available at www.TRYCECO.com.

Bruce Lee System Teacher, Carter Hargrave, Celebrates Milestone

A milestone of teaching the combat art to the public for over eighteen years. Hargrave has achieved numerous landmarks in his teaching of the famous self defense art. Tulsa, Oklahoma - Martial Arts Actor and Legend Bruce Lee founded the Martial Art System known as Jeet Kune Do which was outlined in Lee's all time best selling book The Tao of Jeet Kune Do. Carter Hargrave a master of Bruce Lee's fighting system celebrates a milestone of teaching the combat art to the public for over eighteen years. Hargrave has achieved numerous landmarks in his teaching of the famous self defense art. He is the current President of the World Jeet Kune Do Federation, the largest Jeet Kune Do association with over eight thousand members worldwide, as well as being the author of the Original Jeet Kune Do Training Manual, a best seller only being outsold by Bruce Lee's publications. "Over the eighteen years as a teacher I have taught many many thousands of students, and it seems surreal to think that I have taught more students Bruce Lee's art than the man himself", says Hargrave. Most of Lee's original students are retired or no longer with us. Many had small groups that they taught to keep the Jeet Kune Do style alive. "What has made the difference for us is that we were the first to embrace modern technology and make a serious effort to promote and bring the art to everyone who was curious about what real JKD was and is." With the use of the internet Hargrave and the World Jeet Kune Do Federation has a student count that was unfathomable just a few years ago, which has allowed Hargrave to have taught more students than most of Lee's original students combined. Carter Hargrave is a second generation teacher with lineage to Bruce Lee's school in Oakland California. Press Release courtesy of Online PR News: (http://www.onlineprnews.com).

led:vending Makes Your Merchandise SPARKLE with New LED Lighting Solutions

23.03.10
PrintE-mail
Go Green & Save Money with led:vending Fond du Lac, Wisconsin - led:vending announced the official launch of their LED lighting products. Their plan is to take vending merchandisers of yesterday, and update them with lighting technologies of today. LED technology is becoming the future resource for most lighting solutions used now. The majority of vending merchandisers today still run on fluorescent light fixtures. This means that operators are forced to carry multiple bulb types, ballasts, and must frequently replace an assortment of parts. Energy Star states that LED lighting will "reduce energy costs, uses at least 75% less energy than incandescent lighting, and will last up to 5 times longer than fluorescent lighting." Energy Star also agrees that maintenance costs will be reduced as there is "no bulb-replacements, ladders, or an ongoing disposal program." With the savings on maintenance and energy costs, LED lighting solutions can also help save the environment. As stated by the New York Times, "a complete conversion to the lights could decrease carbon dioxide emissions from electric power use for lighting by up to 50%." "led:vending plans to revolutionize the vending industry with our new, innovative LED products," states Alan Ernst, Marketing Director for led:vending, "We're thrilled to offer this new technology to vending companies. Our products offered are completely universal and allow you to apply the same solutions to virtually any vending machine. These solutions will also work in virtually any 110v or 12v application that you want to use LED lighting in. It will provide lighting with an economical approach to lower power consumption along with greatly increasing lighting longevity, while still presenting easy to install products." Colin Humphreys, a researcher at Cambridge University who works on LED lights, states how easy the LED switchover is by commenting, "It is fit-and-forget-lighting that is essentially there for as long as you live." About led:vending led:vending provides the most cost-efficient way to illuminate virtually all types of vending machines with their LED lighting solutions, not limited to just merchandisers. ledvending.com provides informational videos regarding their solutions and allows the user to visit the led:vending online store to buy products securely. led:vending provides a 14-day money-back guarantee and one-year warranty on their products.

The deVere Group announces plans to offer a new class of trust QNUPS; the latest in pension ...

23.03.10
PrintE-mail
(EMAILWIRE.COM, March 18, 2010 ) UK - The deVere Group has reinforced its progressive position within the pensions market and has announced, that in line with the regulations brought in force by the UK HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) statutory on the 15th February 2010, they will be offering an additional new class of trust recognised as a Qualifying Non-UK Pension Schemes (QNUPS) to better enhance pensions benefits for their clients.

Pension schemes and effective retirement planning are essential for the rising number of people who choose to relocate or retire abroad. In recent years, Qualifying recognised Offshore Pension Schemes (QROPS) enabled investors to transfer their frozen UK pensions overseas, and now the introduction of QNUPS promises another potential tax efficient way to save for retirement. These new schemes will benefit from a UK inheritance tax exemption in respect of UK tax-relieved funds that have been transferred to the QNUPS and will offer expatriates the option to continually pay money into a scheme once they have retired abroad, something that they were not entitled to with a QROPS.

The expatriate market is our primary area of focus and it is important that we continue to find new opportunities that will help our British clients become more tax efficient on local taxes in the countries where they are tax resident and UK inheritance tax (IHT) when they decide to retire abroad commented Nigel Green, CEO of the deVere Group. We are excited to be at the forefront of this industry and believe that these Qualifying Non-UK Pension Schemes (QNUPS) will provide many new benefits for people who live overseas.

The deVere Group, a member of the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI) recently set the pace as the world's leading independent consultant on QROPS with close to 100 million under advice on offshore pension schemes, representing nearly a quarter of all UK transfers to offshore pension schemes in recent years.

To find out more about this additional new class of trusts known as Qualifying Non-UK Pension Schemes (QNUPS), please visit our website http://www.devere-group.com/qnups/qnups.aspx

New Facebook Page for Social Networking: Gaia Holistic Nature Community and Online Love-In Degrees

23.03.10
PrintE-mail
SYNOPSIS: Project NatureConnect announces a new Facebook page for remedying professional community Gaia awareness problems through online communication social networking and love-in contact power degrees. It offers health and wellness goods that connect natural bonds and thinking via earth-organism life love holistic attachments.


San Juan Island, Washington (MMD Newswire) March 16, 2010: A new Facebook page from Project NatureConnect at the Akamai University Institute of Applied Ecopsychology helps people recognize that Planet Earth, acts like, or is a living organism that scientists call "Gaia." The significance of Gaia is that we are connected to all of nature, and to each other, in the same way that our fingers are connected to our toes. When Earth is a living organism, nature's river of life flows through and connects everything, including us.

The Project NatureConnect social networking Facebook page is designed to remedy that we often feel isolated and that we unreasonably seek "security." This happens because, on average, we spend over 98 percent of our life with our thinking and feeling disconnected from Gaia, the nurturing, restorative powers of nature's flow, in and around us.

The Akamai Institute's director, Dr. Michael Cohen, says "Our Facebook page is dedicated to help all people celebrate and strengthen their renewing, in common connection as part of Organism Earth. The page enables its visitors to enjoy online "natural love-in's" with each other and optionally benefit from living Earth courses and degree programs

Cohen, author of "Educating, Counseling and Healing With Nature," believes that our extreme disconnection from Mother Nature is similar to removing a baby from its mother's breast and replacing it with a nipple attached to a bottle of beer. The child's physical and emotional bonds to its human mother, along with its love of life, become, instead, excessively bonded or addicted to the negative effects of the beer and bottle.

"Our Facebook nature-connection page gives each visitor the opportunity to interlace their psyche with nature's recycling ways and correct destructive thoughts and feelings," says Cohen. "It helps us connect our mind with the health and wellness powers of nature's flow, backyard or back country.

The pioneering mission of Project NatureConnect is to enable individuals to embrace the renewing intelligence of nature's ways, in and around them. The online program's low-cost, UNESCO approved, training courses and degrees empower students to make conscious sensory contact with the life-nurturing energy of the eons. Students learn how to strengthen it in themselves and others while visiting local or remote natural areas.

An Akamai Ecopsychology student wrote: "When I started doing this nature-connecting activity I was extremely stressed out. I felt like I was stepping back to an earlier time when I did not have good coping skills. In this natural area, however, I discovered my inherent sensitivities to natural attractions were alive and well. I could enjoyably sense and feel the breath and loving support of the outdoors. The fresh smell of the air and the dazzling beauty of the colors danced across the sky like they were blushing before they slipped behind the splendor of the snowcapped mountains. I thanked this living area for the experience. I respected it for all the renewing joy it had provided when I needed it."

New Hawaii Pacific Teleport iDirect Satellite Service provides low latency communications ...

23.03.10
PrintE-mail

 

Kapolei, HI (MMD Newswire) March 15, 2010 -- Afghanistan Satellite Direct (www.afghanistansatellite.org) is a new iDirect satellite internet service between Afghanistan and the USA offered by Hawaii Pacific Teleport (www.hawaiiteleport.com) and its service partner On-Band (www.on-band.net).

The service is provided on the JCSAT 3A c-band satellite at orbital position 128E operated by Sky Perfect JSAT corporation of Japan. The satellite footprint covers all of Afghanistan and adjoining countries including Pakistan and supports the two way iDirect service for customers with light usage requirements.

Satellite Service Afghanistan

The new iDirect service is unique because it offers the only one hop satellite connection between Afghanistan and the USA through the HPT teleport in Hawaii. Most other commercial satellite services in Afghanistan operate on less reliable ku-band spectrum and are typically routed through foreign teleports in Russia, Germany or Hong Kong which may be less desirable for those customers whose traffic may be better served by a teleport based on US soil.

Advantageously the new Afghanistan Satellite Direct service provides the lowest latency communications link from Afghanistan to most of the USA which is important for defense contractors who for security reasons need to use ‘thin client' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thin_client) server based computing to eliminate storing classified information on computers in Afghanistan.

Vince Waterson, VP Business Development at Hawaii Pacific Teleport said "Last year we deployed our first 2.4m c-band VSAT antenna at a US military base in Kabul for a ‘thin client' application for a defense contractor in the US mid west where the JCSAT 3A low latency link shaved 200 milliseconds off a service provided by another vendor. This JCSAT3A SCPC service has proved so successful in Afghanistan with ISAF and other users that Hawaii Pacific Teleport is announcing at the Satellite 2010 tradeshow the launch of Afghanistan Satellite Direct an economy internet service for customers in Afghanistan who are light users."

The JCSAT 3A satellite is precision operated by SkyPerfect JSAT company http://www.sptvjsat.com/en/ from their Yokohama TT&C in Japan, one of 12 satellites in the JSAT fleet which has in an in-orbit back up satellite.

Hawaii Pacific Teleport operates the only US located teleport providing service on this unique satellite. The teleport is based on the island of Oahu, Hawaii and is operated 24x7 by a team of satellite and internet engineers. JCSAT 3A is just one of over 10 satellites accessed from Hawaii Pacific Teleport. The teleport is connected by 300 Mbps high speed fiber across redundant submarine fiber links to the Internet backbone on the US west coast. HPT services customers with mission critical communications in the military, oil and gas industries.
