by using a one-time installation and modern sustainable storm-water management system
On the 22nd September the annual DPWH Research Symposium took place at the GT Toyota Asian Cultural Center, UP Diliman, Quezon City. This year’s event was called „2016 Research Symposi- um: providing infrastructure that improves quality, traffic and road safety“. It was spearheaded by DPWH Bureau of Research and Standards (DPWH-BRS). The symposium was graced by Mr. Raul Asis, DPWH Undersecretary and Ms. Judy Sese, DPWH-BRS Director. Over 200 enthusiasts in the field of engineering and research attended the said event. Mr. Sajid Anonuevo, CEO of Krah Pipes Manila, Inc. , also held a presentation at the event. His topic was how to stop flooding in the Philippines.
During the first week of July 2016 yet another unusual 3-hour heavy rain surged in the main land of Metro Cebu , which caused severe flooding, “gridlock” traffic and left thousands of civilians stranded on all its major roads. The rain started with a weird, unusually loud thunder and lightning, described as heaviest so far since the state weather bureau announced the start of La Niña.
Tender text for sewage pipes made out of Polyethylene
Public and private tenders are carried out to obtain as many comparable offers for the deliveries and services named in the tender as possible. The tendering authority orientates towards national and international requirements. The responsible engineers are facing the challenge to consider technical and economic aspects equally.
During the development of the tender texts a close cooperation with the product manufacturers is useful to integrate latest innovations which the market creates year after year.
Subsequently you will find an exemplary tender text for a sewage pipe made out of modern polyethylene.
Krah pipes – protecting life!
Krah Pipes OÜ in Estonia has always been keen on developing out of the box solutions and thus opening new fields of application for the Krah pipes. No one imagined that a product, developed few years back together with another Estonian company Vesimentor OÜ, would lead the way into a completely new segment for the industry. In 2012 Vesimentor OÜ approached Krah with an idea to produce underground cellars for food & wine storage. The product was released to the market and successfully sold over the years by Vesimentor OÜ.
Sometimes it happens that a completely random event can start a process of development one just cannot expet. At a meeting during one industry fair a random question was asked. And after a short consideration of possibilities the answer was – yes. This was the start of a completely new product – a bomb shelter. A design that is meant to be completely different from the conventional options. A bomb shelter that is:
The first of the shelters was manufactured for testing purposes in 2014 and during the year many different test were carried out. Amongs them distant shooting with 155mm howitzers, short range bombardment with 81mm mortars, locally planted shells (up to 120mm) and explosives (up to 54kg). During the military exercises also 500lb aviation bombs dropped and the shelter was used as a target for the practice. The shelter was equipped with analyzers for pressure, sound and vibration during the testing and the results recorder in order to understand the effect of the explosions to the people inside.
Energy savings up to 33% - New innovation in the compounding technology!
In September 2016 the Comtruder GmbH, based in Schutzbach, Germany, put the first compounder “ECO 800” in operation.
The Comtruder GmbH is a successful start-up business in the field of plastic technology and mechanical engineering. The CEO Ms. Lelde Muizniece is looking forward to a bright future for the company. The company will compound various plastic materials as well as sell compounding plants worldwide. First international contacts have already been made.
The new technology shows significant savings in the energy-sector. Recently produced compounds show an energy saving of more than 30%. The energy input is displayed on the screen of the machine so that it can be continuously monitored and serve as a reliable proof.
The technology is legally protected by its patent application “DE 10 2015 014 865.6 Mehrwellige kontinuierlich arbeitende Misch- und Knetmaschine” and can only be used and sold by the Comtruder GmbH.
