Upgraded powertrain extends military vehicle?s operational life   Print  
Thanks to a new powertrain, including Allison?s latest fully automatic transmission, the Brazilian Army has been able to extend the life of its vehicles. Monday, 15th February 2010

he introduction of a new engine and the latest fully automatic transmission technology has seen a military vehicle produced by Engesa that was a success in the 80s and 90s back in front line action.

Considered by many to be out of action – as the last units were, for many years, parked in the battalion storage of the Brazilian Army – the armoured Engesa EE-11 Urutu may yet be ready for service again. Destined for troop transportation, the EE-11 despite weighing 13 tons, is a highly capable amphibious vehicle. Together with its carrying capacity, these features made the Urutu very popular among many national armies in South America. With a new powertrain, it is set to strike again.

Spring clean your car with regular servicing   Print  
The XPart AutoService centre network offers MG Rover and New MINI owners a high-quality service option at affordable rates. Monday, 15th February 2010

Motorists planning a spring service for their car following the recent cold snap can visit an XPart AutoService centre for a free vehicle health check to make sure their car is in good working order after the winter

As the country emerges from the recent bouts of harsh weather to enjoy the spring sunshine, motorists are advised to make sure their car is in good working order before setting off on long journeys. Car engines tend to suffer over the winter due to the extreme cold as they strain to reach optimum operating temperature. Additionally, grit on the roads can damage tyres and bodywork, and fluids levels can run low if not properly topped up during the winter months. With modern cars engineered to rely increasingly on Electronic Control Units (ECUs), many faults are now impossible to repair without the use of sophisticated diagnostic equipment, making regular servicing ever more important to efficient running.

EKATO?s innovative side agitator technology offers new biorefinery cost savings, improved efficiency and reliability   Print  
Innovative side-agitator technology and a rigorous R&D process have led to EKATO being selected by Vivergo Fuels to provide side-agitators to aid fermentation at its new biorefinery plant Tuesday, 2nd February 2010

Innovative side entry agitator technology and a rigorous R&D process have led to EKATO being selected by Vivergo Fuels to provide side-agitators to aid fermentation at its new 27-acre biorefinery plant

With plant process managers continually under pressure to identify new means of driving costs down, while improving process efficiency, every element of a plant’s equipment is scrutinised to make sure it offers maximum value for money. Investing in effective and affordable equipment is an even greater concern when planning the construction of new plants. Vivergo Fuels, a company formed in 2007 to help meet the UK’s demand for bio-fuel, recently selected EKATO Group to design and manufacture the agitators required for its fermentation process, having been impressed by EKATO’s unique and rigorous R&D process. The side entry agitators from EKATO, the world’s leading developer of mixing technology, will be used for the continuous suspension of solids and homogenisation of tank contents, and offer a highly efficient and reliable mixing solution together with considerable savings compared to traditional top entry agitator technology.
