    ASA Remediation Reduction...

    So, I've heard from more than one source now that Mold Remediation is getting to be seen as basically a "scam" by some insurance companies and that the result could be that they seriously reduce what they will pay for because of it. Does anyone have related info on this? Thanks.

    ASA Be careful and save a life tonight (New Year's Eve)

    Save a life New Year's Eve. It's time once again to keep in mind drunk drivers' habits if you'll be doing any traveling New Year's Eve. And basically, it's pretty simple: STAY OUT OF THE FAST LANE. The reason is simple: Many, if not most head- on collisions which involve drunk...

    ASTM Heat capture vs Heat exchange...

    Thanks. It will do that when it's not, "new", too.:cool: Dominators are "complete", from a design standpoint. No real changes planned for them.

    ASTM Heat capture vs Heat exchange...

    Similar, but more efficient. Mine routes the exhaust through the water tank. Basically, it's a shell and tube exchanger that's not round, but rectangular, with a removable top and a float valve in it. In other words, the exchanger is the incoming water reservoir. Still working on the rest of...

    ASTM Heat capture vs Heat exchange...

    As I use the term, "heat capture", it relates to positioning something near something that's hot, so that heat radiated from the hot is transferred through the air, vs. having both in an enclosed environment as in a conventional heat exchanger. I've seen Sapphire's U- shaped water tank and they...

    Gasoline IS going to $5.00 a gallon, as Ken sez. 'Course, it's going to take a lot longer. But a broken clock is "right" twice a day.

    ASA Kohler honda or briggs

    Briggs: They're proven to last... as long as you can keep oil in them.  But they leak oil early- on, for some reason.  If they ever over- heat, they're not worth rebuilding, according to my friend who is factory- trained to do warranty repairs on all the various brands of air- cooled...

    ASA Accelerated Truckmounts

    There is a learning curve when it comes to building oil- fired systems. The first one we built definitely had some problems, that only experience with them could have prevented. The second one proved to be a learning experience as well, with regard to making sure that the burner actually burns...

    ASA the nerve of some of you

    Years ago (about 2004), one particular board member who doesn't frequent here called up and ordered a Predator Unleashed, to be installed on a Monday morning. We made it and Monday came- and went. He didn't return my calls, didn't call beforehand to say he wasn't coming, etc. I saw him at...

    ASA For you T/M builders ......

    It can be done. Put a "Y" on the pressure out from the one currently on your system. One leg continues on as usual. The other one would be connected to the new regulator and from there, to the wand. (So it would be cold water.) Or, if you don't run too hot normally, find a regulator that can...

    "gravity- fed oxygen"...? Are you referring to natural convection vs. forced convection...?

    ASA GrimeBeGone VS Viper Venom

    Our customers who use GrimeBeGone tell me that it cleans better than Viper Venom. In addition, the dilution rate for GrimeBeGone is, as you've noticed, much better, so it is much more cost- effective.

    ASA 4m blower question

    Yeah. I know. A lot of people use that definition. But "under- driving" isn't "running at lower RPM than the maximum. It's running the blower or driven component slower than the engine, by using a larger pulley on the driven component than the engine. You can overdrive a blower and still be...

    ASA 4m blower question

    "Over- driving" refers to driving the driven pulley at a higher RPM than the drive pulley... In other words, driving the blower (or pump) faster than the engine. It can't be done with direct- coupled. In belt- drive systems, one of the main causes of premature bearing wear (assuming that...

    ASA northstar diesel hot box flow switch bypass ?

    Depends upon where the temperature is monitored. If it's not monitored inside the heater, you're asking for BIG trouble. The reason is that the heat would need to travel by convection (i.e., molecule to molecule), vs. by flow, down the hose, to the sensor, before the system could respond...

    You're welcome. Yeah, I know about the site thingy. I didn't renew that one when the time came. I was going to use that address back when those labels were done and changed my mind. The new labels (which are being re-done now- updated versions of the current ones...) have the business street...

    ASA Liquid 1 step?

    pH will depend upon dilution. Metered through your truckmount as directed, you'll add 1 qt. to a 5 gal. reservoir and fill the rest with water, then meter through your system at 2 to 4 GPH. IOf you're running 600 PSI and using #6 jet size, the result will be 1/3 oz/ per gallon of water. And...

    ASTM Exhaust wraps..

    Ceramic does allow the condensation to escape. Not sure how, other than that it's actually imbedded in the metal surface, so the condensation should actually form on it- not on the metal.

    ASTM Exhaust wraps..

    Unless the plumbing is made of stainless steel, header wrap will cause it to corrode quickly. This is because as it cools, it draws moisture from the air and retains it against the plumbing.

    I mentioned before that the site is being totally revamped. When it's open to the public again later this month, we'll have Kohler engines, Roots blowers, Cat and General pumps listed. And they'll all be discounted. We'll also have our stand alone high- output heaters listed in both...

    WHAT...? (Just kidding...) No, it's not "bad" to do it their way. It makes sense. It's just not the only way it can be done. And my way is different.
