    Why You Should Keep Your Air Pollution Control Technology Up To Date

    Did you know that the first crewed spacecraft to leave Earth's orbit, reach Earth's moon, orbit it, and return safely to Earth (Apollo 8) was launched into space using the Apollo Guidance Computer (AGC), which had a real time operating system which enabled the astronauts to enter simple commands to control the spacecraft? The AGC was introduced in 1966 with approximately 64KB of memory, and it operated at 0.043MHz and weighed in at a mere 70 pounds (think of a toaster with start/stop/defrost buttons that would require "Team Lift" stickers on the box) yet was able to guide astronauts from the Earth to the Moon and back.

    The Importance of Oxidizer Maintenance: A Cautionary Tale

    Recently, I have been doing some small home repairs/improvements. Planning on a bathroom remodel next spring, I purchased a new vanity/sink along with flooring. Thanks to Hammy, the Houdini of hamsters, I started the project early. Of course, as happens so often when working on projects at home, one thing leads to another, and my bathroom remodeling project is now larger than originally planned. After completing the unexpected electrical repair and replacing the drywall, I got my handy wet/dry shop vac out from the garage to do some “quick” clean up. Everything was going great until I realized that the entire basement was now clouded over with drywall dust. I had not checked to see if the filter was in place before I started to vacuum up the drywall dust.

    An Ounce of Prevention: Preventative Maintenance

    Maintenance on your air pollution control device is like maintaining your motor vehicle. Typically, you do an oil change every 3 months or 3,000 miles (me, it’s more like….5,000). If you are having trouble seeing out the windshield while it’s raining, you install new wiper blades. Some people can do this themselves, while others let a professional do the dirty work. Each automobile has a recommended maintenance plan.

    Oxidizer Maintenance Tips: Managing Condensates

    Why should you be concerned about condensate management in your paint booth, curing oven, exhaust blowers, ductwork, or pollution control device? The primary reasons for this concern is condensates can affect the quality of your product, affect the indoor air quality of your facility, ruin equipment, create safety concerns, and, lastly, affect your bottom line.
