Today’s children have a lot of things keep them occupied. But the trouble is, most of

Today’s children have a lot of things keep them occupied. But the trouble is, most of these things do not promote an active lifestyle. Video games are immersive and fun but they are played sitting down, and smartphones and tablets are good for nothing but thumb exercise. Indeed, going outdoors and being active seems novel to many children today. But what if you, as a parent, could make physical activity as fun as a video game? And what if you could get your child to be more active and actually enjoy it? Well, that’s the aim of the game with kid’s fitness trackers. Below, we have created for you a list of the top 10 kid’s fitness trackers in 2019. So let’s begin: The Nabi Band Compete is sold in pairs and it promotes cross-training with friends and family. You can take on other people in a variety of fun challenges and children can use teamwork to reach adult-like fitness goals, such as running a marathon. The device itself is made from silicone and it is available in a variety of colors. It doesn’t need charging because it runs off a regular watch battery which is user-replaceable and lasts 3 months at a time. Designed for ages 6+, this fitness tracker is compatible with iPhone ...

Kloeckner introduces NobelClad’s bi-metallic plates

Kloeckner Metals UK has recently formed a new partnership with NobelClad, a world leader in dissimilar metal bonding. It’s through these kinds of partnerships that Kloeckner has become one of the largest independent distributors of steel and metal products in the world. Composed of two dissimilar metals, bi-metallic plates are bonded by explosion welding, a cold precision explosion that retains the best properties of both metals. NobelClad has pioneered the use of explosion welding in dissimilar metal bonding. This innovative technique enables bonding in milliseconds, reducing the amount of heat required and therefore preventing any damage that can occur to the metals during the cladding process. NobelClad bi-metallic plates are renowned for the reliability and strength and are available in over 260 metal combinations. Belt Conveyor Vacuum Dryer Using NobelClad’s expertise, Kloeckner can advise the best welding solution and the combination of metals. This will ensure high mechanical strength, thermal and electrical conductivity, metallurgical bond, prevention of galvanic corrosion and reduces the weight of the product. Bi-metallic plates are used in a wide range of industries as...

Air-to-water heat pumps in complementary hydronic systems

Electrically powered heat pumps, in many varieties, are destined to play an increasingly important role in heating and cooling buildings around the world. They convert vast amounts of otherwise unusable low temperature heat into heat at sufficient temperatures to warm buildings or heat domestic water. Electrically powered heat pumps dovetail nicely with large-scale renewable sources of electrical energy such as utility scale photovoltaic systems, large wind turbine farms, or CHP systems operating on bio-gases produced from agricultural waste. NOT WHAT THEY USED TO BE The “classic” heat pump for residential heating and cooling debuted in North America during the 1970s. Big name HVAC companies  developed markets for these early generation “air-to-air” heat pumps, which consisted of two major subassemblies: an outdoor condenser unit, and an indoor air handler. A refrigeration line set connected these subassemblies. Although air-to-air heat pumps have been around for several decades, early generation products were not able to maintain reasonably efficient operation at low outdoor air temperatures. It was not uncommon to turn off those early generation heat pumps when outdoor tempera...
