tire inflation

whenever i feel dat my fuel efficiency is getting lousy….i first check & fill up my tires w/ 32 psi. my car manual (it is also printed in a sticker at d inside of d door panel near d seat in d driver’s side) recommends 30 psi 4d back tires & 32 psi 4d front tires, but i just inflate all tires w/ 32 psi 2make things simple.

a properly inflated tires saves on fuel consumption by as much as 6-10% accordingly due 2lower rolling resistance…

Rolling Resistance is a factor in fuel efficiency as it relates to your tires. The phrase means the amount of force needed to keep tires moving at a constant speed. The greater the force needed, the higher your gasoline consumption. Some kinds of fuel efficient tires are engineered to utilize lower rolling resistance and reduce the strain on the engine.

wen itz tme 4me 2change my tires..i’ll buy d latest fuel efficient ones in d market, such as d yokohama dna earth-1 tires….hope dey will b available in d phils. soon…

Fuel efficient tires are made with innovative combination of materials that generate less heat during the drive. These tires also have a reduced tread depth to further decrease the resistance factor.

high-end vehicles hav automatic tire press monitoring system…itz safer coz u see d real-time pressure of ur car’s tires! if u don’t hav a high-end car but got some dinero….den u can upgrade ur present car w/ after market tpms like d ones fr hella…pls. click d link bellow:

tire pressure monitoring system

tis tpms can assure u dat u’ll avoid accidents due2 bad tire pressure….

boiler efficiency & accidents

i’ve been doin research on boiler efficiency since this is one of d major areas where industrial companies can save a lot of money while minimizing their organization’s global warming potential. bad emissions is a sign of money being burnt….w/ dcost of fossil fuel continuously being volatile, making a boiler work efficiently should be d standard….fuel efficiency is not only bout money savings but also bout safety….an inefficient boiler means trouble….big trouble…it’s like dealing w/ a pressure cooker in d kitchen, it’s very dangerous when u don’t deal w/it properly.

at d start of this holly week, a heat exchanger tank of a boiler system exploded in a styrofoam factory in bulacan province. according 2d news, der wer almost a dozen pple killed in d accident.

many companies are converting their boilers 2utilize biomass just like this styrofoam factory, i.e. dey’r using rice husks as fuel 4d boiler. biomass boiler owners should be particularly carefull bout d fireside since soot accumulation is inevitable….soot in d fireside of a firetube boiler means less heat transfer so more fuel is needed 2burn 2heat d same amount f water. accordingly: ‘soot has five times the insulating value of asbestos. allowing it to accumulate in boiler firetubes wastes fuel-a 3/16″ accumulation in the firetubes will waste more than 20% of the boilers’ fuel.’

in d waterside, water scale, lime & rust accumulate n have a significant impact on heat transfer….more scales means more fuel needed…

therefore, bad boiler maintenance means bad air emissions, inefficient heat transfer, more fuel being burnt…and most of all….it can be an accident waiting 2happen….

when companies loose 10 million pesos (not including d cost of lost lives) like this styrofoam factory….dey will no longer think bout d cost-benefit-analysis of preventive maintenance….an efficient boiler is not only bad for d company’s bottomline in d short-term (due 2expenses 2b incurred) but also good 4d environment as well as d safety & health of d workers in d long-run….

if d styrofoam company can prove dat dey have a working boiler efficiency program  (bep)….i can only agree dat wat happened is really an accident…

if companies can calculate how much savings is d 20% of deir million peso fuel expenses & d cost savings in preventing an accident….it will den be a no-brainer 2implement a bep…..
