Nowadays, the manufacturing of railway applications in Europe is done according to the EN 15085-2 standard.

Nowadays, the manufacturing of railway applications in Europe is done according to the EN 15085-2 standard. It relieves the DIN 6700 series of German standards used widely in Europe in the manufacturing of railway applications. The EN 15085-2 standard defines a certification level for parts and components of railway applications. Four certification levels (CL1-CL4) are laid down for the certification of a welding manufacturer. The certification level set for this project was CL1. The certification level CL1 requires that the manufacturer has a valid welding quality system according to the ISO 3834-2 standard and furthermore there are some additional requirements. The EN 15085-2 standard also defines the weld performance class, which takes into account the stress and safety category, weld performance, and inspection class. The development work on a new wall panel that complies with certification level CL1 (see sidebar “New standard for the manufacturing of railway applications” on facing page) was done in close cooperation between Ruukki Metals (Uusikaupunki, Finland), Rautaruukki Oy (Hämeenlinna, Finland), and Alstom Transport (Saint-Ouen, France) rail transport syst...

ODI Australia vs India SCG, Virat Kohli disappointed with Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul in light of sexism scandal | Fox Sports ODI Australia vs India SCG, Virat Kohli disappointed with Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul in light of sexism scandal

Kohli is yet to hear from India’s board whether Pandya, a gun all-rounder who is normally an automatic selection in India’s one-day team, is free to play Saturday’s SCG series opener. Pandya and Rahul’s recent appearance on an Indian talk show, during which the former had detailed how he had bragged to his parents about losing his virginity, has created a storm in their homeland. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is under mounting pressure to take swift action, having issued both players with show-cause notices. Kohli distanced himself and his team from the views that Pandya and Rahul, who was unlikely to play this weekend regardless, had expressed about women. “From the Indian cricket team point of view, any inappropriate comments that are made in that scenario are something that we definitely don’t support,” Kohli told reporters. “These are purely individual opinions … we definitely, as the Indian cricket team, do not support views like that and that has been communicated.” Debate is raging among bigwigs at the BCCI, a conservative institution, about what punishment should be handed down. A two-match ban appears most likely, although BCCI treasurer Anirud...

Feiplastic ’19: INEOS Styrolution getting permits for US ASA plant

SAO PAULO (ICIS)–INEOS Styrolution is in the midst of securing permits for a new acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (ASA) plant that it is building in Bayport, Texas, an executive said on Wednesday. The plant will have an ASA capacity of 100,000 tonnes/year, and it should be on stream by mid-2021, said Alexander Gluck, president, Americas, INEOS Styrolution. He made his comments on the sidelines of the Feiplastic trade show. The plant will allow INEOS Styrolution to dedicate its Mexican swing plant in Altamira, Tamaulipas state to acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), Gluck said. Right now that plant produces both ASA and ABS at a capacity of 145,000 tonnes/year. Once the projects are completed, ASA and ABS capacity at the two sites will reach 260,000 tonnes/year. INEOS Styrolution is pursuing the projects as demand for the two resins continues to grow. The company expects ASA demand to rise by 4-5% and ABS by 2-3%, Gluck said. ABS and ASA have similar end markets, but ABS is used indoors or in interior applications, while ASA is more typically used outdoors or in exterior applications. In automobiles, ASA is often used in front grills, rear mirrors and other parts in the fr...

Skin Care Tips: Lymphatic Drainage Massage for Quick Detox

With the Diwali revelry just behind us and the wedding season on in full swing, it’s tough to not stray from our fitness regimens and avoid piling on those pounds. While nothing beats a good diet and exercise programme, a lymphatic drainage massage could prove to be a game changer for those looking for a quick detox. A huge trend in the West that is slowly gaining popularity here too, this massage helps to increase the supply of oxygen in your blood, improve circulation and increase lymphatic drainage—thereby reducing water retention, bloating and the appearance of cellulite, while also relaxing the muscles and helping you de-stress. Many skincare experts are now advising the use of Body Ballancer, a US FDA approved device, instead of a manual lymphatic massage which, to a large extent, depends on the service provider. “The Body Ballancer uses proven pressotherapy technology that works with the help of 24 individual air chambers per suit to ensure all your areas are taken care of. This is a much more advanced technique to ensure optimal lymphatic drainage and comfort,” says Mumbai-based dermatologist Dr Harshna Bijlani. The Ageless Clinic, which she heads, is one of the fi...

NEXTracker’s Dan Shugar: Looking Beyond The First 20 Gigawatts Of Solar

Thirty years is a long time to be engaged in any industry, but it’s an extraordinary amount of time to have dedicated to the solar industry.  That type of commitment requires the patience of Job, and both a vision and commitment that few individuals possess.  Dan Shugar, CEO of NEXTracker – a company that designs, manufactures, builds and services single-axis solar tracking and energy storage systems – is one of those few individuals.  Shugar has stuck with the solar game since the early days when he and his colleagues at Pacific Gas & Electric were working to solve a challenge related to solar trackers.  They introduced the concept of backtracking and developed the first algorithm to increase the solar energy collection on a given tracker array and to avoid shading losses that occur with conventional single-axis tracking. That was then, and this is now: This past week NEXTracker announced that it had surpassed the milestone of contracting 20,000 megawatts (MW) of smart solar trackers globally. The company continues to remain the world leader in tracking systems and has doubled its manufacturing capacity over the past year to 300 MW per week. With his power industry and rene...

Sunnyside Arch Remains in the Dark as Lights Remain on the Fritz

The lights have been dark for months and stopped working shortly after they were replaced and revamped to much fanfare in July. Jaime-Faye Bean, executive director of Sunnyside Shines, said that water appears to have got through the protective epoxy disrupting the power source.  She said that she is in the process of getting the contractor out to repair them. “The arch is very exposed to the elements and we were assured that the lights would be weatherized [when they were replaced],” Bean said. She said that she hopes they will be repaired in time for the holiday season. The arch was outfitted with durable LED lights as part of the overhaul, which were supposed to be more reliable than the old neon lights. The neon lights, which went up in 2011, constantly failed. They didn’t work at all last year—prompting their replacement. Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer allocated $15,000 toward the upgrade, which included funds for the new ‘Sunnyside’ sign since the old ones had corroded. The lights, when working, allow the BID to light them up in an array of different colors in celebration of various holidays. The arch was built in 1983 and stands 25 feet above the intersection of 46th Stre...

Cotton Egypt Assn launches public “black list” to battle counterfeits

Giza, Egypt – Cotton Egypt Association (CEA) said it is now ‘naming and shaming’ manufacturers who fail the accreditation protocol it established three years ago with Bureau Veritas. Part of a stepped-up effort to actively root out counterfeit goods from the supply chain, the black list launched with one company named – Pakistani towel manufacturer Indus Home Limited. Only products made from 100% trade-marked Egyptian Cotton can carry the trademarked pyramid cotton logo, and already the manufacturer has had its license suspended. In addition, the organization will soon activate a worldwide task force of secret shoppers who will purchase products labeled as Egyptian cotton from retailers in-store and online, which will be passed along for testing. Khaled Schuman, executive director of the Cotton Egypt Association, said: “We will not stand by while unscrupulous manufacturers mix Egyptian cotton with sub-standard fibers.” He added: ““As well as taking the appropriate action, we will name and shame those trying to pass off non-genuine goods as Egyptian Cotton.” The CEA continue to contact facility audits, traceability assessments, retailer surveillance and its information managemen...
