New North American Project - PowerGuide Complete Can Drying

Drying Machines for the food and beverage industry are in demand this winter, as recent projects shipping this quarter including multiple PowerGuide PowerTunnels for a brand new facility in North America. 
The end user required complete can drying without twisting the can, making the PowerGuide the right solution for their application. 
 

PowerGuide - DryGuide Technology

PowerGuide Can Base Drying Machine
DryGuide Technology - Drying Fixtures Are Integrated Within The Product Guidance System

Based on the customer's requirements, each of these particular PowerGuide's includes three modules for:

Can Top Drying

Side Wall Drying

Correct Orientation Can Base Drying

DryGuide Technology uses drying fixtures that are integrated within the product guidance system and is fixed in place to ensure the optimum position for effective can and bottle drying. With minimal distance between the DryGuide system and the can, this results in remarkable performance and a significant reduction in energy consumption when compared to standard air knives and particularly compressed air solutions.

Modular and tool-less in design and adaptable to speeds of up to 125,000 cans p/hour, read our PowerGuide product page for more.

Upcoming Case Study: Facebook Gas Boosters

The Gas Booster team have been busy supporting industry this Winter. One of the newest projects is with Facebook at their Brock Street office building in London's Euston and Kings Cross region. Recently installed, a case study will be published this January.

Facebook are investing in London, increasing desk capacity across the capital to 6,000, with a significant amount based in Brock Street. As worker capacity increases, so does the need for office heating and cooking facilities; the need for more high pressure gas is greater than ever
The contractor ensured this internationally recognised technology brand had the best solution on the market, for the best reliability, performance and safety. For this they turned to Secomak and our Gas Sensor System.
 

Gas Sensor System


The safest solution for gas operations in more sensitive locations requiring lower noise levels and combined with the Acoustic Enclosure; a “Sniffer” sensor can detect potential gas leaks as soon as it recognises a change in the surrounding atmosphere.
Once detected, is uses Visual and Audible Pre-Alarm Warnings prior to an Automatic Safety Cut Off cuts all electrical supply to the system, reducing any potential threat.

The Gas Sensor System also uses an ATEX Rated Motor for maximum confidence in hazardous environments, such as gaseous, dusty or wet environments.
The Gas Sensor System is an APS Inverter System as standard and is also available in Duty Standby configuration for maximum safety, reliability and efficiency.

Check out our Case Study section this January for the full details on Facebook's Brock Street installation.

Boosting Gas Pressure - Which Gas Booster Solution Is Right For You?
If you have a boiler, burner or CHP that needs an increase in pressure, a Gas Booster is a cost effective and reliable solution.
But with multiple Gas Booster packages available, what would be best for your application?

Gas Booster Package 


Secomak Package Gas Booster

A Standard Package Gas Booster

The original Secomak Solution. A standard Gas Booster increases the pressure (but not the volume) of the supplied gas in a way that is efficient and reliable. Secomak’s standard Gas Booster range is a simple and inexpensive way to boost pressure.
Secomak’s centrifugal blower technology is both powerful and compact, keeping the footprint of the Gas Booster small and allowing more installation options for gas contractors.
A gas booster runs at a constant speed, supplying maximum pressure at all times and standard maintenance applies to recommended British Standards 8487:2007.
 

APS Inverter System


Short for Automatic Pressure Setpoint, the APS Inverter driven gas booster, maintains a consistent outlet pressure at a requested setpoint.
Irrespective of the volume of gas, the APS controls ensure a constant outlet pressure. It is perfect for applications where the pressure must stay consistent and stable. If maximum performance is not needed then the system automatically reduces the speed of the gas booster, resulting in a reduction of energy consumption, reduced noise levels and less wear and tear on the booster’s components.
In addition, the APS Inverter System offers additional control functionality including a reduction in booster acceleration (ramp up) and deceleration times. This is often a necessity by gas suppliers when the boosters are installed on shared main supplies, helping to prevent low pressure warnings.


Duty Standby

Consisting of two identical Gas Boosters, the Duty Standby is ideal when reliability is critical such as:

Hospitals
Residential Homes
Hotels
Schools
Offices
Factories
Process Applications
General Heating & Ventilation



In a “Run and Standby” configuration, the system will automatically switch between the two boosters in the event of a fault, ensuring the boosted gas pressure supply is unaffected. The system will also alternate every seven days (customisable), ensuring that wear on the bearings and drives is spread between two machines. This means that maintenance never interrupts supply of gas, as the alternative booster is in operation.
Having two boosters also eliminates downtime for the same reason. Regular checks from the maintenance team ensures you will always have at least one operational Gas Booster.
The Duty Standby is also available as an APS Inverter System, with the advantages of both configurations.

Secomak Celebrates 90 Years
Today on 16 September 2020, Secomak turns 90 years old. Since 1930, Secomak has been at the heart of British engineering, building and supplying Gas Boosters, producing Drying Machines for the Food and Beverage market and specialising in industrial Fan, Blower and Heater technology throughout. Focussing on Air Movement Technology, Secomak has diversified across these industries over the last 90 years.

Service Electric Company Ltd was born in 1930, shortly after our first fan and heater products were produced. Our fans and blowers are produced on site to this day.
