It is true. New Jersey is a barrier in Spain. I saw it with my own eyes. Bear with me and I will explain.

When I travel internationally I find the people, cultural and language differences fascinating. Last month I was fascinated once again. My blog last month was written while on an airplane as I travelled to Europe (see my July blog When Pipe Stress Analysis Meets Waterhammer Hydraulics: New Waterhammer Guidelines for Engineers). Before going to the ASME PVP conference in Prague (check out this video one of our staff made) I stopped in Spain for 4 days. While there I was fortunate to visit the location of an AFT Impulse project by one of our customers that was a Platinum Pipe Award Winner this year. This case study was published in April. See AFT Impulse™ Matches Data For Pumping Station Check Valve Closure. That pump station photo in the case study is where I visited. Below is a photo of me and the PPA winner David Lozano Solé of AQUATEC – SUEZ Group. For those interested, this project is being presented as a technical paper by David at the 2018 Pressure Surges Conference in Bordeax, France in November. I will be there to help and also present two other papers of my own. So where does New Jersey come into this?

Campus Steam System Redesign Moves Forward After Data Matches AFT Arrow Model

2013 Platinum Pipe Award Winner - Correlation to test/field data   Schuyler Engineering was asked to confirm a 2010 study that recommended that Rockland Psychiatric Center convert to using low pressure steam. Modifications would cost over one million dollars, so constructing a model would give further confidence to the previous study and determine if the conversion to low pressure steam should proceed.     Click here to read the case study and learn how AFT Arrow test results validated previous study results.   Schuyler Engineering is a professional consulting firm specializing in the evaluation, engineering, design, permitting and construction supervision of heating...
