Up in the Cloud

Collaboration, business continuance and cross-device document usage are just a few of the reasons why I love having our company’s e-mail and office documents in the cloud. Cloud services such as Google Apps for Business and Microsoft 360 continue to improve their services and offer efficiencies across the board, making onsite e-mail servers and tape backups a thing of the past for an increasing number of companies. There is no company too large or too small to benefit from cloud services. I will go over some of the advantages and options with you here.

These housings are available in standard poly-coat finish, electro-polished, or with 3M epoxy coating. ASME "U" code designs and high-pressure housings up to 600 psi are also available.

RO Systems

Company Reference: 

New L1-Series light commercial RO systems are ideal for a wide range of applications, including food and beverage preparation, aquariums, hydroponics, misting and more. The 200- to 300-gpd systems feature a new single-pump design, extra-low-energy membranes with auto flush, pre- and post-filtration, and a compact wall-mount space-saving design that is simple to install. They also are energy efficient. 

Water Conditioning System

Company Reference: 

The ScaleNet anti-scale water conditioning system eliminates hard water scale with virtually no homeowner maintenance, no salt additives and no electricity. The system prevents destructive scale build-up on pipe, valves and other plumbing system components using template-assisted crystallization technology, which attracts hardness minerals and converts them into harmless particles that float freely through the system.
