With press fittings, the sealing material and components are combined, and the heat source replaced by a hydraulic pressing tool.

The researchers pointed out that the specific additive they used -- HFE7000 -- is non-corrosive, non-flammable and ozone friendly.

Thin, pressure-resistant, plates with a corrugation depth of only 2.4 mm and a highly turbulent media flow ensure efficient heat transfer.

Many office buildings and commercial premises are unoccupied or have few workers, so maintenance issues that might normally be detected are more likely to be missed.

Chevron corrugation enables effective heat transfer, while double dimple corrugation is the first choice for highly viscous or solid-containing media, as well as for vacuum applications.

With the support of the Victorian Government, the new building brings with it a commitment to create at least 35 new jobs over the next four years.

Geoff Crittenden, CEO of Weld Australia said the introduction of advanced welding technology into Australian manufacturing will deliver significant improvements in profitability, efficiency and quality.

According to Dr Pfautsch this means that planning and the very judicious use of urban materials in that area, is crucial to avoid locking Western Sydney into inescapably high future urban heat.

The unit recovers heat from the refrigeration display cabinets and evaporators and reuses it to heat other areas of the building at no extra cost.

Germany is moving away from high polluting coal and nuclear power will be completely phased out in that country by 2023.

According to WSU, temperatures across urban landscapes can vary wildly, sometimes by more than 10 degrees.

CSIRO research director Dr Patrick Hartley said the science agency was on a mission to bring together industry, government and other research organisations to fast-track emerging hydrogen technologies.

A full range of gas and electric steam boilers were on display as well as a new range of hot water heaters.

FloWorks is open to businesses of all sizes interested in working with CSIRO.

There is no need to climb rooftops to gain access to solar equipment to troubleshoot panel faults, it can be done remotely which greatly reduces time and labour costs.

Headquartered in Marl, Germany, the new entity will enable Yanmar to strengthen its development activities to further expand tailor made solutions for its energy customers in Germany and the rest of Europe.
