22/12/14 The Festive Journal from the AEMT
Happy Holiday Season from all at the AEMT! And as a gift to celebrate the coming end of a great 2014, we present the AEMT Journal.
Yes, the Journal is back! And this issue is packed with meaty articles to get your carving knife into. Kick-starting the magazine, Tim Marks, secretary for the AEMT, considers the affect ATEX has had during its first 20 years. Quartzelec then looks at how they've responded to the strong demand for ATEX terminal boxes.
This year, members were treated to a visit to Scotland based AEMT Member, Parsons Peebles. In reflection we look at how the company is on course for big growth, given the significant investment backed by Clyde Blowers Capital. Another member, Axflow, writes about their dream job: 144 rusted bolts! A look at a leaking Armstong Vickers impounding pump at Tilbury Docks.
Energy Efficiency is top of the cards at the moment, with the new directive mandatory dates taking affect on January 1st 2015. We look at what exactly changes when we all wake up bleary eyed on New Years Day. Sulzer look at engineering submersible pumps to the highest efficiency and also write about a giant challenge they faced with a 9MW offshore motor driving a gas compressor.
Members were also recently treated to a tour of the new Rugby Quartzelec facility, we take a look at the impressive High Voltage Coil manufacturing process they invested in. Bowers Group were approached by Fairline Boats, and they write about their experience in providing a low loss distribution transformer to the Northamptonshire based company. WEG get the stamp of the approval from HRH Queen Elizabeth II, when they were required to help reduce Windsor Castle's carbon footprint.
Finally we look back at the successes of the COGEBI High Voltage Mica Insulation Seminar hosted by Hi-wire and the AEMT Conference, 2015 and beyond!
Best wishes from the AEMT,
