Our Sole Concern Is The Health Of Your Skin

Skin protection starts with the use of pr88 the wash off cream or the new pr88 liquid known throughout the world as the finest “barrier” cream money can buy, but there are many situations where pr88 does not provide the ideal protection. An example is in workplaces with intensive radiation most often from electric are welding lamps for hardening of plastics and drying of paint etc. In this situation the use of prUV skin protection will guarantee that rays from UVA, UVB and UVC will be unable to damage the skin protected by prUV lotion. Simple to apply in all areas of the body, including the face, the lotion is removed by the simple expedient of washing.

Alloy Wire International – wire to resist high temperature & corrosion

Inconel, Monel, Hastelloy, Nimonic…… and 40 more Exotic alloys are all manufactured in wire and bar from 21 mm down to 0.025 mm by the 100% employee owned British company – Alloy Wire International in the West Midlands. Their nickel alloy wires and bars are chosen for springs and engineered parts working in very high temperatures or very corrosive environments, where even stainless steel would not give the desired performance. For this reason they are specified for aerospace, nuclear and oil field applications where the harsh environment necessitates using these alloys to achieve the performance.

LB Foster supplies automation for Clipper’s Burton DC

Materials handling specialist, LB Foster, has designed and manufactured interfloor belt conveyors together with an innovative dunnage belt and chute system for Clipper’s new Burton on Trent distribution centre (DC).

The Burton DC handles the full range of multichannel distribution solutions for SuperGroup’s famous brand, Superdry. Its floor space of 350,000 sq ft is supplemented by a further 200,000 sq ft of mezzanine on three floors. Almost all of the products stored are flat packed in cartons and therefore an interfloor belt conveyor was required to move the cartons from the ground floor to and from the three tier mezzanine.

Hydra-Cell Pumps Shear Sensitive Liquids

Pumping shear sensitive materials can be problematical. Shear helps non-Newtonian fluids flow but too much shear can cause temporary or even irrevocable damage. Hydra-Cell diaphragm pumps from Wanner International are claimed to impose only low levels of tangential stress on the pumped fluid making them ideal for pumping a wide range of shear sensitive materials such as polymers, paints, coatings, dyes, inks, latex solutions and technical suspensions.

The Facts about Motor Rewinds they don’t want you to know…

Did you realise Soda stream are still going? I thought it has long since gone the way of such contemporaneous delights as the Aztec Bar, Atari and the Fiesta XR2. Soda Streams were pretty useless, weren’t they? You got this thick sludge of something that looked toxic and radioactive at the bottom of the glass and your parents never remembered to buy the new canisters. Yes we had one in about 1979 it was in use for about 3 month and once the second canister had run out that was pretty much it. My parents moved on to getting pop from guy who used to drive round every week in a pick-up delivery new fresh bottles and giving us money back for the old bottles, real progress.
