Large Variable Frequency Drive Motors Are Now Protected By Aegis Sgr™ Shaft Grounding With 74 Additional Sizes

Electro Static Technology – ITW, manufacturer of the patent pending AEGIS SGR™ Conductive MicroFiber™ shaft grounding brush, released 74 new sizes with additional part numbers to cover any VFD driven AC motor with up to six inch (6") shaft diameters.

Mechanic Falls, ME (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) July 20, 2021 -- Electro Static Technology – ITW, manufacturer of the patent pending AEGIS SGR™ Conductive MicroFiber™ shaft grounding brush, released 74 new sizes with additional part numbers to cover any VFD driven AC motor with up to six inch (6") shaft diameters. The full parts list for all 137 individual sizes for shafts from 0.311" to 6.020" is available to down load at www.est-aegis.com .
When variable frequency drives (VFDs) are used to control AC motors, currents are induced on the motor shaft. These currents build up until they are strong enough to discharge through the bearings, causing frosting, pitting, and fluting. Over time, these discharges can lead to premature bearing failure and motor failure. The AEGIS SGR conductive microfibers provide the path of least resistance for shaft currents to discharge to ground and prevent bearing damage and extend motor life.

The patent-pending AEGIS SGR is maintenance-free, lasts for the service life of the motor, and is unaffected by dirt, grease, or other contaminants. Now with the expanded part numbers, virtually any VFD motor, regardless of size and horse power, can be protected by this innovative new solution to prevent electrical bearing damage.

AEGIS SGR™ is easily installed by sliding the ring over either end of the motor shaft and locking it in place with simple screw-on mounting brackets. Because no machining is required, the SGR can be installed in minutes — even in the field.

Electro Static Technology is the global leader in the elimination and/or mitigation of induced electrical charges on rotating and moving surfaces. Other products include FLX-P™ flexible peel-and-stick passive static eliminators for printers, copiers, and other imaging devices. Electro Static Technology is a division of Illinois Tool Works (ITW), a $10 billion multinational conglomerate operating in 44 countries.

New Line of Electric Bike Kits Offer Clean, Quiet Transportation, and Helps You Stay Healthier

Automatedcycle.com's new line of electric bicycle kits are great for getting up hills, lazy people, transportation, gas savings, exercise, cycling enthusiast, and people with medical issues who can't pedal long distances.

(PRWEB) July 15, 2021 -- Automatedcycle.com's new line of electric bike kits provides clean, quiet, easy transportation. But did you know it can possibly make you healthier?

We think it can.

In some cases, those who like to ride their conventional bike struggle up hills so they stop riding because they get to tired and don't feel like cycling back home.

Here is an affordable solution: pulling down the throttle of an Automatedcycle.com electric bike. This will allow them to pedal up every hill in their neighborhood.

Oh, I forgot, bicycles don't have throttles.

Well, they do now.

The Electric Bicycle "Bike Kit" can be added to an existing bike (see requirements). Or the Electric bike combo kit (Includes electric motor kit and bicycle - some installation required) can have a person on "automated cycle" in no time.

And, once you push down on that throttle, it just may make you want to go out cycling more often, an activity that is good for the heart.

Electric Bicycles go up to 20 miles per hour and have a range of up to 12 to 20 miles (depending on weight and battery pack size). This will save money on gas / gasoline costs in a time when gas prices are not getting any lower, and allow the rider to do their part in saving the environment!

The advantages of riding an electric bike:

* Get the experience of riding a bicycle without the sweat.
* Get a little exercise. Even though your bike is electric; you can still pedal along with it as much as you care to. Hey, so if you have been lazy in the past, now is your chance. If you get tired, pull the trigger and off you go. It's much more fun than using an exercise machine, that's for sure.
* Have a previous injury, and can't pedal too far? Hip problems? Knee problems? Senior Citizen? Let the electric motor take over when you get tire and still get in some exercise.
* Use an electric bike for local errands? Why drive a 6,000 lb S.U.V. - 2 miles to the corner store or post office; when an electric bicycle will get you there in the same amount of time - without the wear and tear on your car, and without polluting our atmosphere and environment?
* If you have a one-way commute of 10 miles or less why not ride an e-bike instead of driving? You'll probably arrive at work in the same amount of time it would've taken you to drive; perhaps even less if you must fight morning and afternoon traffic, since a bicycle is much more maneuverable.

For more information on the electric bike, visit our website: http://www.Automatedcycle.com or http://www.1-electric-bicycle.com (Authorized Dealer) or call us for more information 973-427-8867 (Leave message if no Answer).

Research and Markets: Total UK Small Domestic Electrical Appliances Market Was Worth £872.9m at Retail Selling Prices (RSP) in 2004

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c20474) has announced the addition of Small Domestic Electrical Appliances - Market Report 2005 to their offering.

Dublin (PRWEB) July 11, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c20474) has announced the addition of Small Domestic Electrical Appliances - Market Report 2005 to their offering.

This Market Report on small domestic electrical appliances covers the market for small kitchen appliances, non-kitchen appliances (irons and hand-held vacuum cleaners) and personal-care appliances. In 2004, the total UK small domestic electrical appliances market was worth £872.9m at retail selling prices (rsp), a rise of 4% on 2003.

The UK market for small domestic electrical appliances is already one of maturity, with a high proportion of purchases being for replacement purposes. At the same time, the difference between low-end commodity products and the high end of the market is growing, as some consumers seek sophisticated, energy-efficient products, while others make a choice based solely on price. One of the largest challenges facing the industry is the issue of disposal, and it seems inevitable that end prices to the consumer will rise when legislation that makes producers responsible for taking back and recycling electrical and electronic equipment comes into effect in January 2006.

A growing Eastern European market, competition from Asian companies, price erosion and retail consolidation are just some of the other concerns facing Western European appliances manufacturers. The most important current development in the structure of the global manufacturing industry is the acquisition of The Gillette Company by The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G;), which is expected to be complete in autumn 2005.

Electrical retailing, meanwhile, is competitive, fast moving and technology driven, and the abolition of resale price maintenance, the involvement of grocery multiples and the advent of Internet retailing have contributed to making market conditions difficult for the independent specialist retailer.

'Core' small domestic electrical appliances, such as kettles, are regarded as necessities in most households, the numbers of which continue to increase. However, in other product sectors, it is generally possible to trade down or defer purchases in any economic downturn. Ever-lowering prices for electrical equipment are obviously of great advantage to the consumer, but ensure that value growth of the market does not match that of rises in volume. How long the independent specialist can survive with such low margins remains to be seen, but the manufacturers have found themselves in a vicious circle. Reduced profits through discounting equate to reduced investment in new product development (NPD), although this is essential to expand the market. In addition, aggressive discounting might damage a brand's reputation, which the independent specialist first helped to build.

KUA Restores Hurricane Dennis Power Outages

Kissimmee Utility Authority crews and tree trimmers are available around the clock to restore power to affected customers.

Kissimmee, FL (PRWEB) July 10, 2021 -- High winds from Hurricane Dennis on Saturday knocked out power to nearly 1,000 of Kissimmee Utility Authority's 58,000 customers in Osceola County, Fla. Electric service has been restored to all customers.

The utility reported scattered outages throughout Kissimmee caused by lightning, uprooted trees and assorted debris. An uprooted tree brought down power lines in the residential neighborhood of Renee Terrace, located off John Young Parkway, and left 84 customers without power for approximately two hours.

At 7:42 p.m. on Saturday, a broken tree limb forced two major distribution feeders to trip offline. The feeders provide power to portions of downtown Kissimmee and areas adjacent to Michigan Ave. KUA crews cleared the debris and power was restored 13 minutes later at 7:55 p.m.

More power outages are possible overnight as outer bands from Hurricane Dennis continue to move through Central Florida. KUA crews and tree trimmers are available around the clock to restore power to affected customers.

Customers who experience a power outage are asked to call the utility's 24-hour outage line at 407-933-7777.

KUA will post daily updates related to power outages and restoration at www.kua.com. Customers can also check local media outlets for information.

Inside ‘Unlimited Energy' New Release Predictive Sci-Fi for Women and Men is about ‘Peak Oil’ and the 'Quest for Clear Skies' G8

Peak Oil is about the World Running out of Oil far sooner than the Politicians would have us believe. Unless the World cuts its use of Oil use soon, we might not even reach the 2022 predicted in ‘Unlimited Energy’ without serious Financial Collapse.

(PRWEB) July 7, 2021 -- Experts in Secret Corridors of Power are now contemplating the unthinkable That is how to tackle the pending energy crisis a decade or less away. Oil prices are rising in a Market Driven Expectation of things to come.

More Coal Burning Power Stations are being built around the World to supplement our overwhelming energy needs. Two large unregulated Power Stations can probably produce more pollution than all the SUVs in the World.

Many Coal Burning Power Stations emit life shattering by-products such as Mercury which pollutes our water and fish, causes fertility problems and a whole range of illnesses.[BBC]

One in six Americans have unacceptably high Mercury levels from a cumulative build up associated with, to name a few, eating contaminated fish, atmospheric mercury, silver fillings which are 50pc mercury[W.H.O.] and crematoria..

If we depend on Oil for all our energy and transport needs and subsequently use it up before there are substitutes, we won’t have any left to make vital products and manufacturing costs will go through the roof. The same goes for coal. World hyper-inflation is a short step away.

For all the criticism, the writer considers that President Bush has a far ranging clarity of vision, which goes beyond the smoke screens most politicians emanate. President Bush is right about the need to find new Technology for our energy needs.

Let us hope that he is serious about ‘A Quest for Clear Skies’. That will be the greatest thing that he could do for our immortality. [Children]

KUA Records Second Consecutive Day of Record-Setting Energy Use

Kissimmee Utility Authority, Florida's sixth largest community-owned utility, offers helpful tips to help save electricity and dollars this summer.

Kissimmee, FL (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) July 6, 2021 -- For the second day in a row, Kissimmee residents set a new record for electricity usage.


A new system peak record of 311.8 megawatts (MW) was set at 4:46 p.m. on Tuesday with an outside temperature of 97 degrees. Monday's record peak was 300.7 MW, breaking the previous record of 298.7 MW set on July 6, 2004.

KUA offers the following energy-saving tips that require little or no expense and can help to reduce summertime energy costs:

* Set the thermostat at 80 degrees or warmer with the fan switch on "auto." For additional savings, raise the thermostat to 82 degrees or warmer when away from home. Raising the temperature just 2 degrees can reduce cooling costs by as much as 5 percent.
* Keep bright sunlight out. Close blinds, drapes and shades during the hottest time of day to block the sun's heat.
* Remember that window air conditioning units generally are not designed to cool more than one room.
* Clean or replace window unit or central air conditioning system filters monthly. Dirty filters cause air conditioners to work harder and use more energy.
* Set pool pumps and automatic sprinklers to run in off-peak hours.

Founded in 1901, KUA (www.kua.com) is Florida's sixth largest community-owned utility providing electric, water and telecommunication services to 170,000 residents in five Central Florida counties.
