Thanksgiving Day marks the beginning of consumer bedlam for many as retail scanners go into full-time duty within minutes after the final turkey leg has been eaten. The crazed Black Friday shopping experience has now leaked into Thursday, followed by Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, for those who need to limit the shopping exertion to a few keystrokes of the computer.

When sediment collects in your boiler's sight glass, it's time for cleaning. In the video below, we walk you through the steps to properly and safely clean out the sight glass. So, after you grab some protective gear and a cup of household ammonia, you will be ready to begin.
After ten hour days, four days a week, and dragging 40-foot long tubing back and forth, six members of the WARE team have completed the retubing of a a boiler project at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, Kentucky.
Up next on the Boiling Point, WARE explains how your existing boiler is generally used as a heat transfer medium, but did you know it can also be used to generate electricity? Learn in our latest YouTube video how you can take advantage of that expansion of steam and use it to capture energy and turn a pump, a fan or a generator to create added electricity. That added electricity can be used back in the plant, reducing the overall amount of electricity needed and therefore, reducing total cost.
Next month, WARE will be mixing it up with over 20,000 of our closest friends! We'll also be learning lots of new, innovative ideas to help our customers at the POWER-GEN International Conference. This conference takes place December 9 - 11 at the Orange County Convention Center West Hall in Orlando, Florida.
Many WARE employees, along with 22,000 other people from 92 countries, (along with 1,400 exhibitors) will come together to learn new ideas, network with other industry businesses, and target the potential of new business development. Since its inception in 1988, POWER-GEN has traveled coast-to-coast and evolved into the largest, most respected power generation event in the world.
Participants will learn more about industry trends, environmental issues, fossil and gas turbine technologies, and on-site power and plant performance. David Walsh, President and CEO of Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Americas, will give an opening keynote address.
This conference is a great opportunity for WARE to absorb more information and put it to use in more efficiently serving our customers. Come visit the WARE exhibit in booth 751 and come hang out with people who have a lot of "power." On-site registration is still available. We hope to see you there!
Ware is currently partnering with the University of Louisville to replace a control system in the University’s Steam Plant. The system controls the boilers to heat the University’s entire campus and makes use of a new technology within the control system industry.
When you watch a movie, isn’t there something that you are able to recognize or point out—something that most of your friends probably wouldn’t notice? If you are a car enthusiast, don’t you enjoy recognizing classic cars or the nuances in their modifications? If you have a flair for men’s fashion, aren’t you more prone to identify the watches or sunglasses that James Bond happens to be wearing? We all have something that triggers our interest and grabs our attention. Since we are in the business of providing steam, here at WARE we tend to notice boilers (more than we would like to admit) when they show up outside of our normal work environment, and the silver screen is where they tend to do this the most.
Steam has played a role in many feature films over the years, and since the Halloween season is fresh in our memory, where better to start than with horror movies? Most of you are probably familiar with a film called The Shining. If it has been a while and you’re having trouble remembering, here’s something to jog your memory: at one point, Jack Nicholson’s character uses an axe to chop an opening in a door and sticks his face through before saying those immortal words, “Here’s Johnny!”
