A few weeks ago we veered from our normal blog topics to take a look at the Gulf Coast petroleum industry. That post sparked an idea for an entire series where we peek into some of the biggest industries we serve. It's all part of staying up to date with who we do business with and pass along some interesting information in the process. By the way, if you missed the petroleum industry blog, check that out here. This week we want to explore the distillery industry and how steam plays an intergral part in the distillery process.
In case you haven't noticed, we like to have fun here at WARE. One quick scan across our YouTube channel and you'll find plenty of videos to support that claim. But the fact of the matter is, we work in a dangerous industry. And while we do like to have fun, we also take safety very seriously.
Today on The Boiling Point, Ritchie talks with WARE's boiler service technician Steve Duvall about the emergency stop in a steam boiler room.
These switches are designed to stop the boiler when things become out of control. They can help stop developing problems from becoming catastrophes.
Last week on Steam Culture, we visited the Louisville Water Works Museum to take a look at the Allis Chalmers Steam Pump. We met with Jay who is an educational specialist for the museum and learned about the history of the steam pump and how it was used back in 1919 just after WWI. If you missed part ,1 you can watch it here.
If you love a good history lesson, then be sure to watch today's Steam Culture episode. Brent visits with Jay, an education specialist at the Louisville Water Park Tower Museum, to talk about the Allis Chalmers Steam Powered Pump built in 1919 just after World War I.
Today we decided to switch up the content on the blog a little bit and take a closer look at one of the industries we service: the petrochemical industry in the Gulf Coast. If you're a regular follower of our blog, we hope you enjoy the change of pace today. And don't worry, we'll be back next week with our latest Steam Culture and Boiling Point videos!
Today on Steam Culture, Brent talks about smoke stacks. Did you know that the idea of a smoke stack derived from the Ancient Romans? From then until now, smoke stacks are still used and have actually changed the landscape of many cities.
