How Maintaining Your Car Helps You Save Gas

If you drive even somewhat regularly, it is likely that you are as sick of high gas prices as the rest of us are. However, there is very little that any of us can do to directly affect the price of gas, so we are forced to turn our attention to doing whatever we can to limit the amount of gas that we use. You may or may not be aware that there are very easy methods for increasing the gas mileage you get in your car, van, truck or sport utility vehicle. In fact, many of the ways that you can help your vehicles gas mileage are through simple maintenance that you should be performing on your vehicle anyway!
It is unfortunate that many who are attempting to escape high gas prices have turned to costly products that claim they can help your vehicle get more gas mileage. Of course, it makes little sense to spend money in order to save money, particularly when these products are largely unproven to begin with. That is why when you are trying to dramatically increase your vehicles gas mileage, it is better to stick to the more reliable, more basic methods instead. These methods definitely include performing the regular maintenance that your car requires already.
Most drivers are fairly diligent about getting oil changes regularly for their vehicle. After all, regular oil changes are among the most fundamental (and cheap) ways to maintain your vehicles performance and condition. Many people do not know, however, that regular oil changes also help to limit fuel consumption!

That means that you will save money in the end, even if you have to spend money to perform an oil change or have one done for you. Also, while youre at it, make sure that your car is running on the appropriate grade of oil. This can reduce your fuel consumption by one or two percent.
One of the better ways to easily increase your cars gas mileage is also one of the easiest. The next time you pull up to a gas station or car wash that has an air pump, check the air pressure in your tires and add air, if necessary. At many gas stations or car washes, this will not cost you anything. Even if the only machine you can find is a pay machine, it will still likely only cost you as much as fifty cents. The price (or lack thereof) and simplicity of this method makes it a great way to help keep yourself away from the gas pump.
Another type of regular maintenance that your car requires consists of regular tune-ups. Tune-ups help to ensure that your car is performing as well as it should be, including in respect to gas mileage. Also, most tune-ups include a check of other important areas, which may reveal a problem with your car that is costing you valuable gas mileage. Fixing many of these areas may result in drastically improved performance and gas mileage, so that is a side benefit of tuning your car, as well.
The vehicle maintenance that will net you the most improved gas mileage is definitely that of checking and replacing dirty, clogged air filters. If your air filters are filthy, make sure to switch them out with clean, new ones right away! Doing so can boost your gas mileage by one-tenth! That is a pretty significant amount when you consider todays unsavory gas prices. Think about one-tenth of a gallon of gas where you live. Thats how much you can expect to save, per gallon, if you drive with clean (rather than a dirty) air filters.
These types of relatively simple vehicle maintenance prove once and for all that it is not necessary to buy costly products to increase your gas mileage. Simply do the maintenance that you should already be doing for your car, and you will reap the benefits!

Interview – A Little Self Refelction

One of my sponsors had approached me to help a college student and friend of his to do a interview for an assignment he needed and it got me thinking that I don’t really share too much of my personal life or myself for that matter with anyone. So I figured this is a great chance for me to start to get used to opening up and letting people get to know me. Check out the interview below and feel free to comment.

Q: First off I’d like you to describe life before your MMA career briefly. What were your living conditions like growing up? What forms of education have you accomplished?

A: I was born and lived in Park Slope Brooklyn where I lived for four years. Both my parents were struggling to make money,so we lived in my grandparents house in an upstairs apartment. My parents were both accountants and eventually started there own company and when we had enough money we moved out to Long Island. I lived in Deer Park,NY til I was 17 yrs old. I graduated High School and attended Stony Brook University for Athletic Training and that led me to BJJ and eventually MMA. My parents got divorced when I was 10 years old and I think that had a big impact on my life in every aspect.

Q:What was you first exposure towards combat sports (Note: If you started in a combat sport other than MMA please describe this)?

A: When my parents got divorced I started to do Tae Kwon Do to release some frustration, and I always had an anger problem growing up so that seemed to help with it. I got my black belt at 12, but stopped with martial arts until college.

Q:What made you decide that you wanted to participate in a combat sport?

A: When I was a kid I loved playing sports, but I had a serious anger issue so my parents figured why not put me in a contact sport that wasn’t football since my mom hated that. Also I was always fascinated with Bruce Lee and my grandfather always had me watch Chuck Norris movies and shows. So I started to enjoy combative styled sports at a young age.

Q: What was your first experience of being good or achieving success at it?

A: When I got my black belt at 12yrs old I took 2nd place at a junior Olympic tournament for Tae Kwon Do.

Q:What fighting and (or) training experience taught you the most?

A: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has gave me the best perspective on fighting and caused me to re-evaluate what I thought I knew about fighting. BJJ is all about the smaller guy winning and using leverage instead of strength.

Q:Who influenced you the most in MMA?

A: My first BJJ instructor Mike “Mikey Triangles” Sandford who is a skilled BJJ Fighter, and my first mma coach Eric Uresk who is a Pro MMA Fighter and at the time was a fighter out of Xtreme Coutures Camp and is currently training at ALLIANCE in California.

Q:Who influenced you most outside the sport?

A: My mom has definitely been the strongest influence in my life.

Q:What do you say to the people who think MMA should not be a legal sport?

A: I first ask them why, because if you really watch the sport its not the blood sport that is depicted by most politicians. Also I would say go to a gym and watch them train and interact with one another, people have the misconception that fighters are juiced up meat heads that want to just hurt one another. On the contrary most fighters even myself don’t like confrontation unless in the ring or cage.

Q:What have you accomplished in MMA?

A: I have won the North American Grappling Association North Eastern Championship at my weight and skill level, taken 3rd at the Las Vegas Cup No GI OPEN at my weight and skill level. Currently undefeated in Muay Thai and MMA 3-0 officially (4-0 unofficially)

Q:What do you hope to accomplish in the future?

A: I want to become a pro muay thai, submission and mma fighter and hold championships in each specific sport as well as be an ambassador for the sport and create a fighters union to protect the fighters that don’t make the kind of money they deserve.

Q: I’d like for you to describe to me your training procedure before a fight please, when and where do you start training?

A: Well I like to keep myself close to fight shape year round so that preparing for a fight isn’t as challenging, but currently I am training At Vamos MMA on Long Island,NY. I usually like to have a solid 8-12 week period set up before a fight to really focus my training specifically for that fight. I will incorporate, striking, grappling, conditioning, and weight training to be in the best shape and the most prepared I can be.

Q:How much time do you put in every week when you are preparing for a fight?

A: I will spend a solid 2-4 hours a day training, and usually an hour or two with recovery techniques to stay fresh and able to go hard again the next day so total at the end of a week preparing for a fight I’ll put in a solid 30-40 hours between training sessions, lifting, cardio, stretching, ice baths, and recovery treatments.

Q: How much do you research your opponents before a fight with them?

A: I try to find out as much as possible on my opponent as early as possible but sometimes it is difficult as a amateur fighter to know a lot about my opponent, my main concern though is making sure I am doing everything to make myself the best fighter I can be for the fight and making my opponent deal with my strengths, if I can get them to adapt to me the fight is already won in my mind.

Q: Describe your training partners, maybe some bonds you have formed with some of them.

A: The guys down at Vamos MMA are top notch, I couldn’t ask for a better core group of coaches and training partners. I feel that even though I am in the cage alone at the fight, it is really the people that I train with on a daily basis that make me the fighter I am. It really is a team sport with out proper coaching and training partners to push me I cannot be a better fighter. Honestly my team is like my family because the core group of guys all train together so frequently that I see most of them more then my friends and family during training camps. Like I said before fighters are surprisingly relaxed people and actually quit intellectual we just like to compete in a combat sport.

Q: How strict are you about diet before a fight?

A: I am extremely strict with my diets, because the last thing you want to do is come in over weight for a fight and have all your training go to waste because your not on weight.

Q: How much weight do you have to cut before a fight and how do you cut it?

A: I will lose around 10lbs for a fight but the week of I try not to lose more then 2-3 lbs because I have to weigh in just hours before my fight. Professionals have a slight advantage that they can weigh in the day before and rehydrate and fuel up a full 24 hours before they fight. I will usually switch over to a pure liquid diet 48 hours before a fight to clean out my system of any waste, and eat clean the entire 8-12 week camp I am training.

Q:Describe what’s going through your head before a fight as you are walking into the cage.

A: I am really not thinking of anything specific besides trying to focus the energy that I feel into the task at hand. Right before I fight though I think that this guy is going to try and hurt me, hurt my family, and I have to protect them in and that usually gets me in the right mind set.

Q: Can you describe any moments you have had in a fight, and (or) training that you were in a very tough situation, or were facing adversity. How did you overcome it?

A: Honestly I have a lot of moments where I ask why am I doing this because the training can get very taxing on my mind and body, but every-time once I can push through that wall I know why I do it because I love the challenge it presents. One specific time i remember sparring my coach and him catching me clean and cutting me open, I finished training and thought if I can make it through that I can handle whatever is going to get thrown at me.

Q:Finally, why are you a fighter?

A: I actually don’t know how to answer this question, I think its something you are born to want to do. I can’t give a definite reason why. But I can say I love the mental and physical challenge that fighting presents. I don’t look at myself as a fighter I consider myself a Martial Artist.

Stand Up Scooters: {feeling Like A Kid Again|riding Around In Fashion|eco-friendly Transportation|fo

Using Stand Up Scooters

Apparently every person these days drives at at a very fast speed. Everyone is seeking to not waste time and money, the 2 most valuable resources. The easiest method to get around in a hurry and also to cut cost is by using a moped. Scooters are naturally thought to be used by pre-teens, but people of age can drive scooters, too. They happen to be a very practical option for a quick trip to the store or post office or dash to the garbage dumpster in a dorm.There are quite a few different choices available dependent upon the daily routine of the driver, so it’s important to have a look around prior to making a purchase.

The moped is speedy and also uses very little gas so it is quite cost-effective. Of course, if you use an electric scooter then you certainly save money on fuel.

There are all sorts of scooters available but it seems that the most famous moped could be the stand up moped. There are a minimum of two stand up scooter types that are hottest and they are:

* The motor-driven scooter, which is designed to have the rider hop on and stand up; and
* The kick scooter, which is also made to have the rider stand up, but it begins with the rider pressing off the ground surface.

The latest technology wonder in the stand up scooter could be the Segway. It is a battery powered stand up scooter that can go as much as ten mph and is perfect suited for flat surfaces. The experience of riding on a Segway is actually identified as something between a skate board and a bicycle. For the sake of safety, it is suggested that a rider put on a helmet.

Typically the Segway is kind of the Cadillac of the scooter industry, but it doesn’t have to be bought outright. Many Segway dealers now are leasing the scooters just like a car. To keep the moped operating, it has an electrically charged battery like the size of the one used in a motorized wheelchair. One thing that’s favored by a lot of Segway owners is that it’s very easy to stop if needed. It is easier than trying to halt while riding your bike. The Segway is self balancing making it easier to drive on for all those people who are among the clumsy, “balance-challenged” side.

The Segway is just not intended to be used for long-distant transportation as the battery will sooner or later die out and need charging. Furthermore, the driver’s lower limbs could possibly get tired of being in one place for a long period of time. Plain surface is a good location to ride the Segway due to the fact that this does not maneuver well around grass lawns or rough surfaces. It is also difficult to go up and down city curbs. Hence, it’s meant to be driven for pastime purposes and not a regular means of transportation.

While a 2-wheel stand up electric scooter may be a playful choice for children, many grown-ups are taking notice of the value in these super modes of transportation.Scooters for mature people are constructed specifically for their heavier size, so be sure to seek a scooter out that is comfortable for the driver.

If you’re looking for some summer vacation this year, you can set aside the bicycle and the skateboard and get a stand up scooter just like the Segway!

Pressure Washer Reviews – My Top 3 Recommendations

The advantage to using this type of pressurized water is that it can make quick work of household chores that might take hours of hard scrubbing if doing by hand.

Uses for a Cheap Pressure Washer

Pressure washing units are typically used for cleaning driveways and household siding, stripping paint, removing mildew from buildings or decks, cleaning barnyard floors and parlors, pool areas and more.

Cleaning outside deck furniture, cars and bicycles, grills and other outdoor equipment is also a good application, although you’ll want to make sure that you use lower pressure or a wider spray to prevent taking off paint or finishes.

Industrial applications, too, like maintenance of work areas and truck bays are perfect for this type of pressurized water.

These type of chores could take hours of back-breaking effort by hand, but a good machine can save you much of the time and hard labor.

Starting your spray about 2 feet away, aim your nozzle at the designated area and move in until the water is satisfactorily removing the dirt and grime.

Focusing the nozzle to spray water tightly (as in a pencil-sized spray) may help remove dirt more quickly, but you’ll want to take into consideration that the focused spray can cause damage to more delicate surfaces like car paint and exposed wood.

After all, you don’t want to remove the paint from your car!

Cheap Pressure Washers Are Generally Electric

The cheapest pressure washers are typically powered by electricity. This allows for quieter motors and operation as well as better fuel efficiency. However, electric washers are much less powerful than their gas-powered counterparts.

Actually, electric models have about half – or less – of the cleaning power of gas-powered pressure machines.

Cheap washers that run on electricity start at about $100 and go up to about $300. Cheap washers that are powered by gas or diesel fuel start at about $300 and go up from there. has endorsed the Ridgid RD 80701 gas washer, stating that this model provides a water flow rate of 2.6 gallons per minute. stated that there is enough power at 3,000 psi to strip paint with this Ridgid model. However, at $550, this model may not be what most people consider a cheap pressure washer.

The cheapest models are by far the electric units since they have been designed with the homeowner in mind, and not for commercial or industrial applications that require hours of operation at a time.

60% of Homeowners Will Purchase an Electric Model For Household Use

Most homeowners use their washers to clean decks, driveways, siding, outdoor furniture and the occasional automobile. The majority of homeowners will use their machines less than 20 hours a year and don’t want a machine so powerful that it will strip the paint off their house or car.

You’ll want to bear in mind, also, that the more powerful washers have the ability to peel skin right off you, so care is needed when operating the unit.

Electric washers fit most homeowners’ needs perfectly. And since about 60% of pressurized water washers sold are electric models, it seems that homeowner agree!

If a cheap washer is in your future, check out product reviews for what others have found to be the best value.

I love the Ridgid rd80701. It’s unbelievable… If you’ve never used this, you’ve never used an industrial pressure washer!

Benefits Of Auxiliary Power Units

Across the United States, truck drivers today are faced with the on-going implementation of anti-idling regulations. This creates a need for a true cycling battery in the heavy duty truck industry. An Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) not only increases comfort for the driver, but also saves money and reduces air pollution.

Currently, the Department of Transportation requires ten hours of rest for every eleven hours of long haul truck driving. For the typical truck driver, that can mean extended periods of time spent in the cab. The most commonly used idle reducing technologies not only dictate stopping, but also provide limited amenities. The Auxiliary Power Unit, however, offers amenities during breaks and eliminates the need to idle the engine. These amenities include heat, air conditioning, and electricity for personal devices. The Auxiliary Power Unit means more flexibility and greater comfort while on the road.

The Auxiliary Power Unit can also save the truck driver and the trucking company money. When a truck idles, it burns approximately 1 gallon of diesel fuel. With an Auxiliary Power Unit, the need to idle is eliminated and only .2 to .3 gallons of fuel are consumed per hour. This could save approximately 8% in fuel costs per year. Inefficiency not only burns unnecessary fuel, but also puts wear on the engine. The Auxiliary Power Unit can extend the life of the main engine by around 100,000 miles. This occurs when non-productive run time is reduced.

Not only can the Auxiliary Power Unit save money, but can also help save the environment. Pollution from diesel fuel emissions has a variety of effects on the environment, ranging from regional haze to global climate change. The Auxiliary Power Unit technology could potentially eliminate eleven million tons of carbon dioxide per year. In addition to carbon dioxide, other emissions produced by diesel trucks include nitrogen oxide and particle matter. Sulfur dioxide and formaldehyde have also been found.

The Trojan Over Drive AGM 31 is an example of a battery that is specifically designed for cycling truck applications. In addition to powering an efficient and environmentally friendly APU system, this type of battery offers many benefits. First, it is maintenance free with no watering required. It is a fully rechargeable battery and efficiently recharges as the truck is driven. Over standard lead acid batteries, the Trojan provides vibration resistance. The battery is packaged in a durable propropylene case, which offers increased protection. The Trojan Overdrive AGM 31 is can be easily lifted and installed. These rechargeable batteries offer the truck driver clean, steady reserve power. Emergency Generator Batteries.

Weight Loss Detox – 5 Mistakes To Avoid

The last time I did a Google search for “detox diet”, I got over 2,680,000 results. Detox, or cleansing, is a hot topic and for good reason. We live in an increasingly toxic world where we either ingest, inhale or are otherwise exposed to chemicals in the form of pesticides, food additives, household cleaners, drugs, pollution, cigarette smoke, heavy metals, to name a few. In short, there is no escape. Some we have control over, for example what we choose to eat, others we don’t, like jet fuel and industrial waste spewed into the atmosphere.

Detox diets have become the rage amongst the jet set and celebrities, but many people are not totally clear on what detoxing really means, or how it works. It’s essentially a nutritional system that aims to rid the body of harmful impurities, leaving the cells healthier and able to carry out the functions they were made for. There is a veritable plethora of detox plans available. Some are better than others, and some can actually be harmful, so do your research before starting a cleanse. One website listed over 30 different detox diet plans ranging from the “Master Cleanse” to the “Hallelujah Diet”. How do you know which one to choose?

A good detox or cleanse, is one that flushes toxins out and at the same time floods the body with high quality nutrients. By combining the right nutrients, minerals, vitamins and the correct balance of cleansing herbs, you provide the body with what it needs so it can eliminate what it doesn’t need (toxins, metabolic waste, excess fat and water.)

It’s important to realize that cleansing for weight loss should not mean fasting, which can be really harmful to the body. When you detox, you need to support your body with the right minerals, vitamins and bio-available proteins (easily digested proteins with a complete amino acid profile, such as undenatured whey). You need to give your body the essential nutrients it needs to repair and regenerate healthy cells.

Here are the 5 mistakes to avoid when embarking on a detox diet:

1. Not drinking enough water. Water regulates body temperature, helps breathing, transports nutrients, creates energy in your cells, carries away waste and helps your muscles function. The cells need to be adequately hydrated in order to flush out impurities.

A good rule of thumb is to drink half of your body weight in ounces. For example, if you weigh 120 lbs, drink 60 oz of water a day.

2. Eating a diet high in acidic foods. Health thrives in an alkaline body, disease thrives in an acidic body. If your body is too acidic it will hold on to water in the tissues in an attempt to diffuse the acidity. This can also cause the body to hold on to fat.

3. Drinking acidic beverages. Soda is the worst culprit, but also be aware of coffee, many fruit juices and energy drinks to name some. All of these are highly acidic and can wreak havoc on the body’s ability to burn fat efficiently.

4. Not consuming enough calories. If you go for more than 48 to 72 hours with inadequate calorie consumption, your metabolism will slow down and your body will hold on to fat.

5. Not including exercise to help flush toxins from the body.

To ensure the best results when embarking on a weight loss detox, first find a plan that includes high quality nutrition. Then make sure you drink enough water, eat an alkaline diet, cut out acidic beverages, consume the right amount of calories and incorporate an exercise program. If you follow these tips you’ll be well on your way to getting rid of unwanted fat and improving your overall health.

Trailer Tracking Is More Than A Security Issue!

While fleet operators might view the key benefits of trailer tracking as maintaining constant cargo visibility while trailers are constantly coupled and uncoupled or left parked unattended overnight, determination to cut fuel costs and doublecheck driver timesheet records are never far behind in their thoughts.

Its for the above reasons that over recent years, the desire to maintain constant contact with every single one of their Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGV) and articulated trailers has led to transportation companies installing a vehicle tracking solution as standard policy.

Yet beyond the safeguarding of valuable assets and shipments against loss or theft, todays highly competitive and cost-conscious, customer-service led industry cannot be underestimated. It is too often forgotten that before GPS vehicle tracking technology was available, trying to locate and speak with drivers once they were en-route, could take many long hours or even days via telephone, causing costly delays or scheduling chaos.

Maintaining control over driver movements via a realtime tracking device enables fleet managers to determine if their trailers are being used for moonlighting or other unauthorised, and possibly illegal use.

However, different freight and transportation companies will have their own requirements according to the different types of trailer being employed, from refrigerated, curtain sided to box container to even flat bed, where applications needed might be for temperature monitoring, perishable freight and bulk load transportation.

Notwithstanding, the importance of a tracking device for pinpointing vehicle location and a fast response trailer tracking can supply load security by implementing motion sensors and door monitoring. Precise data measurement of time and distances travelled can be collected from the trailer on a 20-second update and location-based reporting can be pre-set, even when the trailer is off-road, on a daily, weekly or monthly reporting cycle.

Temperature control on chilled, refrigerated or frozen goods containers can also be continuously monitored by independent probes or directly connected recorders.

Load capability has significantly expanded in recent years and it is estimated that for every HGV there are now three trailers. However monitoring was still based on operating both a trailer tracking and a separate vehicle based system at the same time. Latest technology advances now enable the same data reporting for both the trailer load and vehicle.

A trailer tracking unit can be installed in a covert and secret recess to avoid tampering or theft and is manufactured to specification, allowing the device to successfully cope with exposure to tough weather conditions, including protection from winter road salt.

Shaw Capital Management News: Flex-fuel Power Plants Now Opening In Brazil

On January 19th 2010, the first ethanol-fired power plant whirred into action in Brazil. National oil company Petrobras (NYSE: PBR) and American systems giant General Electric (NYSE: GE) pitched in resources to turn an existing 87 MW plant into a flex-fuel power station that can alternate between natural gas and ethanol (which are both considered alternative fuels, even though only one is renewable).

GE wants to see how its turbines can be adapted to work in flex-fuel plants in Brazil and in developed countries like Japan, where clean-burning power plants are gaining momentum.

Brazil’s water-dependent hydroelectric infrastructure teeters during the dry season in places where natural gas isn’t easily accessible. It just so happen that wind power peaks at the opposite time of the year as the water in running rivers that drives dam-based generation.

Ethanol and wind could supplant natural gas as the primary alternative source of electricity generation during the dry season in Brazil and President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva said in the Brazilian press that Brazil could be selfsufficient in natural gas after several pre-salt (read: incredibly deep) offshore fossil fuel pockets are tapped.
That capacity is at least five years away. Ethanol is there now, and after wind power auctions started last December, 773 wind turbines will be turning across Brazil by 2012.

Shaw Capital Management Korea News: Shell, Petrobras, GE, and Cosan will surely push hard to get the government in Brasilia to initiate a nationwide “ethanol electricity” campaign to ensure that oil and automotive fuel aren’t the key determinants of sugar ethanol’s success.

As in so many other areas of the world, those communities that are now underserved by fossil fuels can benefit most from such clean energy advances.

The US Administration completed its revised Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS2). RFS2 will move towards a national goal of 26 billion gallons of biofuel production by 2022.

Specialty Pipelines for Renewable and Alternative Energy Substances

Pages : 216

The world is rushing to harness alternative and renewable energy sources, and global specialty pipeline infrastructure is jumping to keep up. SBI Energy estimates that the total global market for specialty pipelines will show year over year increases of 30% or more through 2015. This will result in a total global market of over $3 billion by 2015. Because their chemical composition and transmission requirements composition are different from conventional fossil fuels, renewable fuels can be corrosive or destructive to existing/conventional pipelines, fittings, seals, and other conventional pipeline-related infrastructure. Transport of renewable fuels such as biodiesel, ethanol, and biomethane along existing fossil fuel pipelines (diesel, jet fuel, gasoline, natural gas) is frequently impracticable due to concerns of contamination between renewable and petroleum fuel batches. Additionally, the distributed nature of production operations for many renewable fuels, and for biomethane in particular, promise to support the construction of substantial new pipeline infrastructure.

Similarly, enhanced oil recovery, carbon capture sequestration, and other emerging energy economies require pipeline transport of carbon dioxide, commonly under very high pressure. Like ethanol, carbon dioxide can be highly corrosive to conventional pipelines, resulting in increased leakage rates, high repair costs, and general pipeline deterioration. The need to upgrade existing pipelines or construct new specialty pipelines for these substances has led to the emergence of product markets for components and materials related to specialty pipelines.

Substances carried in specialty pipelines – carbon dioxide, ethanol, biodiesel, and biomethane/biogas – have found market growth due to high petroleum prices, the development of enhanced oil recovery methods using carbon dioxide injection, carbon capture and sequestration system development, the presence or potential for carbon emissions penalties in several world markets, industry and public interest in biofuels, and renewable fuels standards mandating increasing production and blending with petroleum fuels. These factors are driving a general shift in the energy economies of several world markets, towards technologies and fuels that mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and ensure greater energy security for countries with declining fossil fuel resources.

As these new energy economies gain traction, economies of scale continue to develop in support of renewable and other alternative energy products. Particularly in areas where alternative energy production or consumption is highly concentrated (for example, carbon dioxide enhanced oil recovery fields in Texass Permian Basin), pipelines are emerging as an efficient means of transport to reduce costs associated with truck, barge, or rail transportation. In anticipation of increased demand for pipeline transport of alternative fuels and carbon dioxide, pipeline producers and operators have already investigated or established construction and operations procedures for the transmission of carbon dioxide, ethanol, biodiesel, and biomethane.

The design of specialty pipelines is, for the most part, based on existing technologies and materials used in existing pipeline transmission operations, as well as the oil & gas, renewable fuels, and chemicals industries. Components of specialty pipelines not found as extensively in existing pipelines for natural gas, petroleum, and petroleum products include protective coatings, large-diameter resin and plastic pipes, specialty industrial pumps and compressors for corrosive substances such as ethanol and carbon dioxide, specialty valves, and technologies able to detect pipeline leaks. Due to the increased risk of corrosion or stress-related cracking of specialty pipelines that carry ethanol or carbon dioxide, specialty pipelines also represent a notable market for state-of-the-art technologies used for existing petroleum pipelines to detect leaks, minimize corrosive wear, pitting, lamination loss, or metal loss. The further development of commercial pipelines for next-generation energy sector substances will depend on ongoing product specialization and operational experience with specialty pipeline components.

Tips To Use An Electric Power Washer For Restaurant Cleaning

An electric power washer can be a good choice for the proper upkeep of restaurants and hotels. However, it is important to choose the right product for effective results. Buying a machine from the first website you stumble upon can result in a low grade machine that is not right for your cleaning needs. The purchase decision has to be made after careful consideration and thorough research. The following is a discussion on how electrically powered pressure washers can be of great help in cleaning restaurants.
How Do Pressure Washers Work
These machines function by pumping highly pressurized output onto hard surfaces. The high pressure output blasts away dirt and impurities. Their use is limited to hard surfaces, like industrial machinery and warehouse floors, because most soft surfaces cannot withstand the high pressure output. The output pressure of modern systems can reach up to 8000 psi, depending upon the model. For restaurant cleaning, pressure washers with an output pressure level of around 3000 psi or less would suffice.
Previously, pressure washing machines were used for heavy duty industrial cleaning jobs that required high output pressure. The challenge was in remodeling these machines to make them suitable for commercial cleaning tasks. Now moderately powered pressure cleaners, with pressure levels from 1000 – 3000 psi, are available for commercial users.
Benefits of an Electric Power Washer
Based on the source of power pressure washers can be classified into various categories: electric power washer, gasoline pressure washer, propane pressure washer, and diesel pressure washer.
The output performance and cleaning efficiency of all these machines are more or less the same. There is no obvious connection between the cleaning power and the power source in use. However, different types of machines are suited for different kinds of uses.
An electric power washer is ideal for areas where electricity is available, as in indoor facilities and outdoors near an electric plug point. This is what makes electric pressure washers so practical for hotel and restaurant maintenance. The functioning of these machines does not involve the burning of any fossil fuel. As a result, they do not generate any exhaust.
Another advantage of electric pressure washers is the lack of noise. They function very smoothly without making much noise. This feature is particularly handy for cleaning inside a building, such as in restaurants and hotels.
Electric power cleaners are available in all-electric, where the system is powered and heated by electricity, and fuel-heated models. The latter offers higher temperatures, with systems capable of emitting wet steam at temperatures up to 330F. These systems offer the same benefits as all-electric machines with higher temperatures. On the other hand, operators looking for the convenience of a single power and heating source can purchase all electric models capable of attaining high hot water temperatures up to 205F.
How to Buy
Everybody wants to buy the best pressure washers. One important thing to understand here is that a machine that is best for one person may not be the best for another. The choice depends on the requirement and budget of the buyer. The best pressure washers for restaurant cleaning are often electric-powered machines. As already mentioned, they do not produce exhaust and operate with little noise. More important, electric plug points are often easy to find in restaurants and hotels.
One may also want to buy a mobile pressure washer. These machines offer more flexibility and options than a stationary machine. There are two kinds of portable machines: wheel-attached and truck-mountable ones. For restaurant cleaning, a wheel-attached mobile pressure washer is most ideal.
It is always better to buy an electric pressure washer from reputable suppliers. One must check the previous record of the seller and various features of the product before making the purchase.

Commercial Pressure Washer The Ideal Machine For Residential Builders

Construction sites of all shapes and sizes are filled with dirt, dust, and other deposits that can detract from the final product. Particularly, in the case of the residential building, construction companies must turn over the home in pristine condition. To do so requires more than a bit of detergent. Residential builders require a commercial pressure washer to get the job done right.
Post construction clean-up, regardless of the dwelling constructed, is no easy task. As mentioned previously, dirt, dust, grease, grime, and other residues that make their way onto the finished product must be removed. To do so, a powerful commercial pressure washer is the ideal tool. These machines combine powerful features with advanced technologies to quickly complete virtually any cleaning task faced during post-construction cleaning. Let’s take a look at some of the specifications required for these applications.
Commercial Pressure Washer Specs for Post-Construction Cleaning
The first option to choose is the power method. Commercial pressure washer machines come in electric, gasoline, propane, and diesel powered configurations. Electric pressure cleaners require use in proximity to an electrical supply. If electricity is running at the time of post-construction cleaning, these are the best machines for the job. They are clean burning and offer more readily accessible energy by simply plugging the machine into an electrical plug point.
However, in many cases, a construction company’s job is complete before the electrician is on the job. This means that no source of electricity will be available, making an electric pressure washer an inconvenient option. In these cases, opt for gasoline, propane, or diesel powered commercial pressure washer systems. While these machines do generate exhaust during operation, post-construction cleaning is an exterior process, thus fumes emitted will not harm the user.
Temperature levels must also be considered. Post-construction clean-up can be tackled with cold water pressure washing machines. These systems, however, lack the additional cleaning power afforded by heat. As such, many builders opt for hot water or wet steam pressure washing equipment. For maximum versatility, select tri-mode pressure washing equipment. These flexible machines enable the use of cold water, hot water, or wet steam depending on the degree of the application at hand.
Pressure levels and flow rates are yet another key consideration. Higher pressure levels and flow rates offer greater cleaning power, though it is important that the surfaces being cleaned can withstand such power.
Lastly, always look at the mobility options available. Truck mounted pressure washers offer the greatest mobility for post-construction cleanup, since the high powered, heavy machinery can easily be transported by moving the truck or trailer. This requires less man power for moving the system, while still offering enhanced portability. In addition, with top truck mounted pressure washers, operators can utilize up to 300 feet of pressure hose without losing any cleaning power. This means that the operator can place the truck in the driveway and reach applications around the entire completed home.
To learn more about the pressure washing machines like electric pressure washers, truck mounted pressure washers and many other for post-construction cleanup of residential build sites, contact a reputable supplier today.
