US Navy’s Next Aircraft Carrier More Cost-Effective Than Predecessors

first_img View post tag: US Navy November 13, 2015 Authorities US Navy’s Next Aircraft Carrier More Cost-Effective Than Predecessors Share this articlecenter_img View post tag: USS Gerald R. Ford Back to overview,Home naval-today US Navy’s Next Aircraft Carrier More Cost-Effective Than Predecessors The first aircraft carrier in the Ford-Class (CVN-78) will be equipped with an on-board liquid oxygen generating plant that will decrease ownership cost by reducing operational manpower and maintenance.This has been announced by Chart, a global cryogenic engineering company, whose Acoustic-Stirling liquefier was incorporated in the carrier’s generating plant.The industry team, led by Rix Industries, charged, by the US Navy and Huntington Ingalls, developed a system which will succeed the oversized, energy intensive distillation columns installed on all current US Navy nuclear powered aircraft carriers.Apart from delivering on the energy savings, the company claims the new system produces liquid oxygen 20 minutes from start-up, instead of almost 24 hours with conventional technology.The size and weight of the plant is approximately 50% of its predecessor, helping the Navy attain their overall reduction goals.USS Gerald R. Ford is in the final stages of construction and testing and is scheduled to join the U.S. Navy fleet in 2016, provided the ship passes shock trials.[mappress mapid=”17415″]Image: Huntington Ingallslast_img read more

Maidaid evolves washers

first_imgMaidaid has made a number of changes to its dishwasher range. Firstly its new Evolution 2025ws pass-through dishwasher features the Salt ’n’ Go water softening system. The machine will operate continually, with no break while the softener is regenerating. The wash tank is 20 litres instead of the industry-standard 39 litres, meaning it is more ecological in terms of water usage.The firm also claims to have improved water quality with a new and patented water filtration system. “Soiled wash water is forced to the bottom of the tank as clean water is introduced unlike many conventional machines, which mix the two. Cleaner wash water means more efficient rinsing,” explained Maidaid.The firm’s portfolio also now includes the new Evolution 500ws under-counter dishwasher, which is 100mm shorter than conventional full-size models, according to Maidaid.last_img read more

(Aug. 26-27) – Eric Martini’s efforts to win the Mighty Axe Nationals took five years while Billy Kendall needed just seven minutes to race his way to the top step of the Modified podium at North Central Speedway.Martini topped Friday’s Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified headliner at Brainerd and earned $1,000, Kendall’s Saturday checkers were good for $1,200 and their wins landed both drivers on the 2017 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot.Martini gained the Friday lead on the fifth of 25 laps, passing Erick Thiesse on the bottom and josh Beaulieu on the top. He led to the finish, holding off Don Eischens, Larry Zeller and Kendall in check following numerous restarts in the final laps.“I’ve called this the Elusive Axe for years. I’ve tried to win it for five years but something always happened,” he said. “My son Cameron told me I’d have to hang it up if I didn’t win it this year.”Like Martini on opening night, Kendall drew the third starting spot on Saturday. He needed a bit longer – 15 laps – to get the lead, passing Eischens to win in a feature that ran caution-free and took just seven minutes to complete.“I’ve run the Mighty Axe in a pure stock, a SportMod, a street stock and now a Modified. This was the first time I’ve won it,” said Kendall, who was close to a straightaway ahead of Eischens at the finish. “”Last year I was close with second and third-place finishes. It’s nice to finally get one. There were a lot of good drivers here.”Shawn Fletcher was third and fourth went to Aaron Johnson.
