Purchasing your New Rig

If you already have a fleet of powerful hauling trailers, you might want to consider their actual carrying capacity before using them to transport your new workover rigs. Given that hauling trailers vary in size and power, you’ll want to find the best fit for your existing equipment.

Otherwise, you’ll only risk damaging your trailer if you burden it with a workover rig that’s too heavy. Conversely, you could also be underestimating its capacity by using it to haul a rig that’s too light. Be sure to keep the following tips in mind when buying workover rigs.

Among other things, take a look at the trailer’s specifications in terms of mobility. Site conditions typically vary, after all, especially when you need to move around your vessel to optimize its use. While a rig’s ability to be dismantled and assembled in a short time is a huge plus, the fact that you’re moving around this piece of equipment can cause it to suffer significant wear and tear in no time.

Meanwhile, you need to find quality rigs made from durable materials and parts sold by an established dealers. You’ll want to do business with a dealer who not only offers an optimum range of products but it also provides reasonable payment options.

What Building a Wind Farm Entails

If you want to help supply the energy consumption needs of the nation, why not harness wind power? Currently, various offshore oil reserves are being explored for additional fuels, and the different sources of renewable energy are being tapped. However, out of the estimated 4.099 trillion kWh produced by the country in 2011, only 5.3% came from renewable energy (source: CIA). That means the wind power generation industry still has room for improvement.

Should you decide to build a wind farm, you have to plan your operations down to the last detail. It will take years to complete such a project from the ground up, but the rewards should be well worth all the time and effort.

You can begin by consulting professionals and government agencies on finding a location rich in wind resources. Wind maps or special measurement tools may be used to identify these sites. If the site happens to be wildlife habitat, it should be avoided to limit any ecological upset.

Next, find high-capacity wind turbines and other equipment for power production and monitoring. Modern turbines and towers can be as high as skyscrapers and often weigh tons, so find suitable heavy haul trucks to transport your giant machinery.

You must also comply with federal and state-specific regulations on electricity production and distribution. Refer to the appropriate authorities to obtain complete information and assistance for your wind farm project.

Maintaining the Quality of Central Mixed Concrete

If the quality of the materials used are less than satisfactory, then a construction project is liable to fail sooner rather than later. As such, producers and distributors of central mixed concrete make it a point to produce and deliver products according to the highest industry standards.

Production

Aggregates and paste make up the two basic ingredients of a good concrete recipe. As with any manufactured good or product, the ingredients must be mixed using the right tools and methods. To this end, producers of central mixed concrete need to acquire a concrete batch plant that is in excellent condition. The automated controls ensure that all ingredients are properly measured and mixed. With durable, sealed drums and modern controls, the materials can be combined free of impurities and maintain their consistency.

Delivery

As the final product is transported to the construction site, its uniformity and workability should be protected. Improperly agitating the concrete during transport or prolonging delivery to the job site can only diminish the product’s quality. Likewise, using a poorly designed truck or carrying out deliveries when environmental conditions are not optimal may ruin the product completely. Given these factors, concrete suppliers would do well to invest in sturdy and functional truck mixers as well as plan delivery to the job site within specific ideal minutes or revolutions.
