With each industry adhering to their remote visual inspection (RVI) guidelines and nondestructive testing (NDT) methods, ViewTech Borescopes VJ-3 articulating video borescope caught the attention of engineers working for a nuclear power facility and a dairy industry pioneer. A nuclear fuel fabrication facility required a change in video borescope inspection tools used to visually examine the internal cavities of 30B cylinders. With the facility’s current inspection scopes not able to produce adequate illumination, the no-cost, no-obligation demo offered by ViewTech Borescopes was an advantageous way to confirm the VJ-3 video borescope would achieve the brightness level required, along with properly documenting their findings. During the demo period, a Senior Manufacturing Engineer was able to visually observe and capture photos and videos of the cleanliness inside the 30B cylinders with the VJ-3 video borescopes enhanced lighting. Another of ViewTech’s newest clients, the world’s largest producer of mozzarella cheese, reached out when considering a new videoscope to monitor their Clean-in-Place (CIP) effectiveness and efficiency. With lengthy pipes requiring inspection, a ViewTech video borescope expert advised a VJ-3 6.0mm x 8.0-meter Dual Camera matched their necessary specifications. After being able to tryout their prospective inspection tool without cost, the Associate Director of Engineering confirmed ViewTech’s borescope easily accomplished visual verification of their CIP and upgrading to a ViewTech video borescope would prevent timely disassembly of their processing equipment and piping. By experiencing the superior image quality, 360° articulation, and outstanding customer service that accompanies the VJ-3 video borescope, each organization was able to make a knowledgeable assessment during their no-cost, no-obligation demo period. With ViewTech Borescopes visual inspection technology onsite, both the nuclear fuel fabrication facility and food processing plant agreed to purchase their respective demo video borescopes. VJ-3 Video Borescope The VJ-3 mechanical articulating video borescope is an NDT instrument used for the RVI of machinery, equipment, and components. The VJ-3 facilitates the visual recording and photo documentation of inspection and components in areas that are otherwise inaccessible or require great effort and expense to access directly. The VJ-3 video borescope consists of two modules integrated into one system: an insertion tube with distally mounted camera/LEDs, and the base unit with a control panel, LCD monitor, power source, and all necessary circuitry. About ViewTech Borescopes ViewTech Borescopes, founded as RF System Lab in 2008, is North America’s #1 seller of video borescopes. Their first product, the VJ borescope, set a new standard for portability, ergonomics, and ease-of-use, with its industry-first mechanical, joystick-controlled articulation.

Dense bottom layers in the Scotia Sea, Southern Ocean: Creation, lifespan, and destruction

first_imgThe lower limb of the Atlantic overturning circulation isrenewed by dense waters from the Southern Ocean, asubstantial portion of which flow through the Scotia Sea.We report dense bottom layers here, with gradients intemperature and salinity comparable to those seen near thesurface of the Southern Ocean. These are overlain by layerswith much weaker stratification, and are caused by episodicoverflows of dense waters across the South Scotia Ridge,and topographic trapping within deep trenches. One suchlayer was found to be at least 3–4 years older than the water immediately above. The estimated vertical diffusivity to which this layer was subject is substantially less than the strong basin-average deep mixing reported previously. Weconjecture that (a) vertical mixing in the Scotia Sea isstrongly spatially inhomogeneous, and (b) the flushing ofthese layers, like their formation, is related to overflowevents, and hence also strongly episodic.last_img read more

Old Mutual grows African operations

first_img5 July 2013 South African financial services group Old Mutual is expanding its African operations with the acquisition of a controlling stake in micro-finance company Faulu Kenya. The deal, which makes up a portion of the R5-billion the company has set aside for African growth, is expected to reach completion by the end of 2013, dependent on regulatory approvals and the finalisation of legal agreements. Old Mutual Kenya comprises part of the long-term savings and investment business of the Old Mutual Group, which is listed on the Johannesburg and London Stock Exchanges. It was selected after a two-year process that saw Faulu engage with over 20 potential financial partners and narrow it down to six local and international institutional investors. “The exercise entailed a rigorous vetting process to pick the best suited partner in line with Faulu’s commitment to being a financial bridge to success for Kenyans,” Faulu managing director, John Mwara, said in a statement on Thursday. Faulu was established as a loan scheme in Nairobi in 1991 and expanded into a micro-financing firm. It was the first micro-finance institution to be licensed to mobilise deposits from the public by the Central Bank of Kenya in 2009. It now has over 100 service outlets, including 31 banking branches in 44 of the 47 counties in Kenya with over 400 000 active customers. “This deal confirms Old Mutual Kenya’s commitment to availing affordable insurance products to millions of Kenyans through strategic partners like Faulu, whose fast expanding branch network creates an excellent distribution channel,” said Old Mutual Kenya CEO, Tavaziva Madzinga. “I am delighted that we have agreed this partnership with Faulu,” Old Mutual Emerging Markets chief executive officer, Ralph Mupita. “We continue to see further opportunities for the development of our business across East Africa.” SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Offseason overhaul complete, new era begins for Celtics

LATEST STORIES Still, he downplayed the idea that this season is more important than any other during his six-year career.“Every moment in my life is pretty important,” Irving said. “I wouldn’t say that it’s the most important. I would say it’s probably the most interesting.”Here are some things to watch for with the Celtics this season:EARLY REMATCHOne of the byproducts of the deal that brought in Irving was that president of basketball operations Danny Ainge had to part with Thomas, who had become not only a two-time All-Star, but the team’s emotional leader as well.A hip injury he suffered in the playoffs won’t allow Thomas to be on the floor when his new Cavaliers team hosts the Celtics in both team’s season opener on Oct. 17.But it will make for an interesting on-court reunion for Irving and James.REUNITEDADVERTISEMENT When Hayward entered free agency, Boston was thought to be high on the list to land him because of his previous association with coach Brad Stevens.Stevens was Hayward’s college coach at Butler, and the pair came within a missed last-second shot by Hayward of winning a national championship.While Hayward said the ultimate decision to leave Utah for Boston was basketball-driven, he said the connection he had with Stevens was a factor.“I always had a dream to play in the NBA, but he was the first person to tell me that I could get there some day,” Hayward said.After growing into a first-time All-Star with the Jazz, he now will have the chance to play a key role again in a “position-less” system that promises to utilize Hayward’s skills as a scorer and passer.TRIMMER SMARTGuard Marcus Smart will look a little different on the court this season after shedding 20 pounds in theoffseason.He said he struggled with back pain during the latter part of last season at 240 pounds and made it a priority to change his diet and slim down.One thing that won’t change, Smart said, is how he plays the game. His physique has changed, along with many of the players around him. But the goals are the same, even has he prepares to take on a new role as one the Celtics’ veterans. Smart, Horford, Terry Rozier and Jaylen Brown are the only returning players from last year’s roster.“Marcus is a critical part of our team,” Stevens said. “I think ultimately we want our identity to be a team that gets better every day. And I think his mindset, his competitive spirit, his toughness, his will — all of those things make teams better.” Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF president LOOK: Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte unwind in Amanpulo for 3rd anniversary Boston Celtics’ Kyrie Irving, left, and Gordon Hayward look on from the bench during the first quarter of a preseason NBA basketball game against the Philadelphia 76ers in Boston, Monday, Oct. 9, 2017.

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Aston Villa boss Smith confident Grealish will find formby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveAston Villa manager Dean Smith has backed Jack Grealish to find some form.The midfielder and Villa captain has struggled to play at his highest level so far this season.”There will be more to come from Jack. He wants to get better. You end up sometimes dragging him off the training ground because he wants to get better. It’s a massive plus in his favour,” he said.”Jack’s a football person. He will train all day and go and find a room somewhere and fall asleep. Then he’ll wake up and go and do a gym session, that’s how he is.”He’s that sort of character – I’m surprised his girlfriend is still with him! He’ll go back home and he’ll be watching football as well. He’s a football nut.”Jack and John McGinn were probably our most influential players last season and to expect them to be as influential in the Premier League is asking a little bit too much straightaway. But they are getting better and better, that’s for sure.”What we want Jack to do is to be running at opposition players and hurting them like he did against Crystal Palace.” last_img read more
