Check out 2018′s best facade products for enclosure performance and design

To ring in the New Year, AN dived into a year’s worth of facade products to select the best of 2018. Ranging from operable vent windows to manually-embossed cement rainscreen panels, these products are sure to boost the environmental performance and aesthetic value of any new project. Sungate 400 is glazed with a passive solar control coating that improves thermal performance and reduces solar heat gain. This energy efficient solution helps to reduce winter heating costs and provides exceptionally clear views. Engineered for maximizing views, this curtain wall system is built around structural silicone glazing. It includes an operable vent for aeration without the unsightly aesthetics and sight blockage of traditional windows and openings. Designed for historic window restorations, the NX-300 thermal window bestows an antique look updated to meet contemporary performance codes. It is available in a variety of casements: outswing, awning, fixed, and fixed-over-awning configurations. This facade system is treated with a photocatalysis-activated coating that is accelerated by light, which decontaminates the surface millions of times per second. As a byproduct, the autonomously clea...

New and Enhanced 3-12.5 Ton Rooftop Units Comes with Smart Equipment Enabled Register ico-close ico-supplier ico-white-paper-case-study ico-product ico-cad

MILWAUKEE – (January 23, 2020) – The YORK® brand of Johnson Controls has relaunched two series of 3–12.5 ton commercial rooftop units that provide a wide offering of performance-focused comfort solutions for commercial environments. The YORK Direct Fit and YORK Predator have been relaunched as YORK Sun Core and YORK Sun Pro, respectively. With this relaunch, both platforms now feature a new three-stage cooling option. Upgrading the airflow strategy from constant volume to three-stage cooling with IntelliSpeed™ control can offer up to a 3.4 IEER (26%) increase on comparable models. The ultra-high efficiency Pro rooftop units are the highest efficiency dual circuit model on the market, offering up to 21 IEER. Both platforms have models to meet Department of Energy (DOE) 2023, ASHRAE 2016 and IECC 2015 requirements. Core units are economically designed for new construction and direct replacement applications to minimize the need for transition curbs, while the Pro units offer a premium cabinet with maintenance-friendly standard features for service professionals. “Our mission to advance the efficiency, comfort and intelligence of buildings inspired us to redefine the Pro and Core r...

Vulcan Steel Products Inc. (Petitioner) on February 19, 2019, filed antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD)

Vulcan Steel Products Inc. (Petitioner) on February 19, 2019, filed antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) petitions against Carbon and Alloy Steel Threaded Rod (“Steel Threaded Rod”) from China, India, Taiwan and Thailand. Under U.S. trade laws, a domestic industry can petition the U.S. Department of Commerce (“DOC”) and U.S. International Trade Commission (“ITC”) to investigate whether the named subject imports are being sold to the United States at less than fair value (“dumping”) or benefit from unfair government subsidies.  For AD/CVD duties to be imposed, the U.S. government must determine not only that dumping or subsidization is occurring, but also that the subject imports are causing “material injury” or “threat of material injury” to the domestic industry. The proposed scope definition in the petition identifies the merchandise to be covered by these AD investigations as: The merchandise covered by the scope of these investigations is carbon and alloy steel threaded rod. Steel threaded rod is certain threaded rod, bar, or studs, of carbon or alloy steel, having a solid, circular cross section of any diameter, in any straight length. Steel threaded rod is normal...

<!–*/ */ /*–>*/ Global e-commerce sales for 2019 are expected to be up 17.9% from the previous year, to $3.46 trillion. That number sounds huge, but it’s less than 15% of total retail sales. As more consumers move their purchases online, this medium is expected to reach 22% of all retail spending by 2023. MercadoLibre (NASDAQ: MELI), the Latin American e-commerce specialist, and the online juggernaut Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) are primed to benefit from this growth.  Amazon was founded five years before MercadoLibre, but it has grown much bigger since it started in a more established and tech-oriented market. Its revenue is more than 100 times larger than its smaller, regionally focused counterpart. Note: MRQ=most recent quarter. Data from Yahoo! Finance, company earnings reports, and annual filings. Table by the author. Both companies have expanded beyond their e-commerce beginnings. Amazon moved into cloud storage in 2006 as it realized its in-house infrastructure services could be sold to other companies. MercadoLibre ventured into payment services in 2003 to enable its customers who didn’t have a bank account or credit card to buy online. The Latin ...

How Hydraulic Jacks Work Register ico-categories ico-open ico-close ico-supplier ico-white-paper-case-study ico-product ico-cad

A jack, or hydraulic car jack, is a device that uses force to lift heavy loads. The primary mechanism by which force is applied varies, depending on the specific type of jack, but is typically a screw thread or a hydraulic cylinder. Jacks may be categorized based on the type of mechanism used to generate the lifting force, typically mechanical power, hydraulic power, or pneumatic power. Mechanical jacks, such as the commonly used car jacks, lift heavy equipment and are rated based on the lifting capacity, which is typically expressed in terms of the number of tons that the jack can handle. Hydraulic jacks tend to have higher lifting capacities than mechanical jacks owing to the amount of force that can be generated by the hydraulic cylinders which product the lifting action. Common forms of hydraulic jacks include bottle jacks and floor jacks. Hydraulic jacks function based on a concept in fluid mechanics known as Pascal’s Principal. Essentially, if two cylinders (a large and a small one) are connected by an incompressible fluid, and a given amount of pressure is applied to one cylinder, that same pressure is imparted to the second cylinder through the fluid connecting them. How...

Spin-dependent charge transport through 2D chiral hybrid lead-iodide perovskites

Chiral-induced spin selectivity (CISS) occurs when the chirality of the transporting medium selects one of the two spin ½ states to transport through the media while blocking the other. Monolayers of chiral organic molecules demonstrate CISS but are limited in their efficiency and utility by the requirement of a monolayer to preserve the spin selectivity. We demonstrate CISS in a system that integrates an inorganic framework with a chiral organic sublattice inducing chirality to the hybrid system. Using magnetic conductive-probe atomic force microscopy, we find that oriented chiral 2D-layered Pb-iodide organic/inorganic hybrid perovskite systems exhibit CISS. Electron transport through the perovskite films depends on the magnetization of the probe tip and the handedness of the chiral molecule. The films achieve a highest spin-polarization transport of up to 86%. Magnetoresistance studies in modified spin-valve devices having only one ferromagnet electrode confirm the occurrence of spin-dependent charge transport through the organic/inorganic layers. Spintronics, which takes advantage of not only the carrier (electron or hole) charge but also the spin degrees of freedom, provides...
