Seriously—we’re talking since it first appeared during polo matches in the mid-1800s and reinvented by both John E. Brooks, a Brooks Brother legacy, in 1896 and Jean René Lacoste (yes, that one) in 1933, who reimagined the pique cotton short-sleeve style as we know it today for tennis matches. But the life of the polo has been quite dubious over the past few decades when you think about bad ‘70s iterations or the boxy cuts made famous by your dad’s golfing crew. Regardless of past notions, there’s nothing frumpy of the latest batch hitting now. This season’s polos are flattering (cut slimmer) and highly versatile with the ability to be dressed up with slacks and brogues for the office or down with jeans and sneakers. The best polo shirts will do it all for you this season—from staying cool and dry on the beach with moisture-wicking fabric, to looking seriously stylish as you hit the bar in a flatting-fit. This might look like just another navy polo shirt, but like all stellar offerings from Mack Weldon,...

Finding HVAC Techs to Properly Diagnose TXVs Is Necessary but Problematic | 2019-02-04

The basic components and function of a thermostatic expansion valve (TXV) continues to play a role in HVAC service. “Long, long ago in a faraway place, TXVs had very little impact on service technicians because they seldom gave any problems,” said Carter Stanfield, who currently serves as lab assistant at Athens Technical College in Athens, Georgia, after retiring from full-time teaching. “The contaminated compressor issue, the switch to POE oils, and lack of nitrogen brazing have all combined to make TXV problems fairly common.” Not only does Stanfield have over 40 years of experience in the industry, but as co-author of “Fundamentals of HVACR,” from Pearson, he literally wrote one of the books on the components and functions of modern HVAC systems. In one of its sections on TXVs, the book points out that “this component is widely used for nearly all types of air conditioning and refrigeration systems. The advantage of the TXV is its ability to automatically adjust to match the load, as it is designed to sense changes in the refrigeration load and respond to them.” A member of the metering valve family — which includes the likes of capillary tubes, automatic expansion valves, ...

Rajoo-Kohli show new extrusion laminator and coater at Rajkot open house

Rajoo Engineers and Kohli Industries organized an open house on 5-6 September at Rajoo’s manufacturing plant near Rajkot to showcase the new Lamex extrusion coating and lamination machine. Announced just around a year ago, the machine has been manufactured in a joint effort by Rajoo Engineers and Kohli Industries in record time. The two-day open house demonstrations were attended by present and potential customers from across India. Sunil Jain president of Rajoo Engineers says an extrusion coating and lamination line offers multiple benefits compared to the solvent-based or solvent-less adhesion of conventional laminators. “When you are performing a solvent-based or solvent-less adhesion there is a curing period involved. However, in the case of an extruder laminator, there is no curing period – it is instant. This helps in increasing the turnaround time and productivity,” Jain says. According to Jain, an extrusion coater laminator machine also helps in reducing the total cost of materials as a melted polymer is cheaper than adhesive. “Not only is melted polymer cheaper, but it can also help in increasing the barrier properties of the laminate,” he adds.  The machine on display ...

Tesla and RGS set for solar roof tile market share battle in US

More in News, Manufacturing, Modules, Power Plants, Projects, Markets & Finance, Companies, Financial & Legal, Americas Tesla is aiming for the luxury residential market and RGS the mainstream conventional shingled home market. Image: Tesla Dual function residential roof tiles or shingles that incorporate solar PV (photovoltaic) cells into an integrated PV system for new build and retrofit homes have already received the ‘hype’ from Tesla’s Elon Musk but a new kid on the blog is set to go head to head with Tesla for this niche US market both from a manufacturing and installation perspective.   The hype surrounding Tesla’s solar roof system seems to be very much US-centric, not least because the product may take many years to travel across the Atlantic and gain a foothold in Europe, or Tesla may simply not bother as solar roof tile technology from a number of European companies has been around many years in Europe and remains a cool but niche product.  PV Tech recently highlighted that Tesla’s solar roof tile product offering was still undergoing design iterations ahead of a volume manufacturing ramp at its Gigafactory 2 facility in Buffalo, New York state.
