HPS Loadbanks’ newest product, the HPS 3.3MVA Resistive/Reactive Loadbank (manufactured for HPS by Crestchic UK) is an all-weather unit that operates in extreme weather conditions up to ambient temperatures to 120°F and has an industry-leading 15+-year estimated lifespan.
Indeck Keystone Energy’s technology center has completed the custom engineering and manufacture of one of the largest shop-assembled boilers in the United States. Indeck Keystone Energy delivered this massive Keystone watertube “D” type package boiler for a major steel manufacturer in the Midwest. The boiler weighed nearly 1,000,000 pounds and required tremendous efforts to move it by land and sea to the client. Design of the large boiler involved engineering, manufacturing, and transportation considerations. The custom-designed watertube boiler included 100% tube and membrane furnace and sidewalls to increase boiler life while reducing overall maintenance.
LEDtronic’s latest generation of direct incandescent-replacement R16 LED Reflector Lamps with standard 26-mm medium screw base operate on 120 VAC and provide a concentrated 40-degree beam of light from a cluster of 40 LEDs. The energy-efficient R16-40-SIW-120AM (3,000 K warm white) and R16-40-TPW-120AM (5000 K natural white) draw just 1.7 W each and provide up to 140 lumens. Up to 90% savings in energy costs over incandescent and halogen bulbs, and an operating lifespan of up to 50,000-hour LED make these high-efficacy R16 lamps ideal for architects, retail store display creators, entertainment designers, and other lighting professionals to integrate economical illumination into maintenance-intensive applications.
