Process Cooling Water (PCW) Floor Modules

Posted by Adam Tarr on Aug 14, 2017 10:04:12 AM

How Floor Modules Add Flexibility To Your Process Cooling Water System

Industrial process equipment can produce a lot of heat during normal operation. Most industries employ process cooling water (PCW) systems to help regulate equipment temperatures to levels that are safe for the general operating environment

PCW systems pump water (or other fluid media) to and from the process equipment, creating a means by which heat can be safely exchanged and transferred away from its source. 

As facilities change and relocate process equipment to accommodate technological changes, business growth, and production cycles, the flexibility to reconfigure support systems also becomes essential.

5 Benefits of Raised Floor Systems

There are many reasons to design or retro-fit a work space with raised access flooring (RAF). 

RAF systems create value from the bottom up by overcoming the restrictions of traditional flooring and creating a work space that is highly reconfigurable, efficient, productive, safe and organized. 

Because every space is different and every design is guided by specific requirements, we decided to compose a list of 5 benefits that raised floor systems can deliver to just about any application.

5 Raised Floor Tiles To Consider For Your Design Plan

With the growing adoption of raised access floors across a variety of work settings - from office and retail spaces to call centers, casinos, trading floors, data centers and service corridors - facility engineers are seeking wider selections of raised access floor tiles to meet the needs of these increasingly diverse applications.  

What could be the perfect tile selection for a server room application might be completely different from what is needed for a high-purity production facility.

Just as the support structure of the floor should be spec'd for various heights, load bearing needs, and utility configurations, one must also consider the selection and placement of appropriate types of floor tiles to solve for similar design challenges and system requirements.

A Winning Formula For Alloyed Raised Access Flooring

Posted by Adam Tarr on May 17, 2017 1:37:46 PM

The Benefits of SB Tech's New ECO Al-Mg Raised Access Flooring

The industrial world uses large amounts of Aluminum (Al) and Magnesium (Mg) alloys because of their relative abundance, good strength-to-weight ratios, and in the case of Aluminum, corrosion resistance. Magnesium, however, has a disadvantage that when in a molten state for casting into products, it will oxidize (burn) on contact with the air. To combat this, manufacturers typically use some type of ‘melt protection’, such as a gas or liquid to isolate the molten surface of the magnesium from ambient air conditions.
