EH&E and Brigham and Women’s Hospital Win IFMA Excellence Award for Advancing Fire, Life Safety in Construction Practices

IFMA award ceremony 2014.cNeedham, Mass., — July 22, 2014 — EH&E, a leading provider of environmental and engineering consulting services, has won the 2014 IFMA Boston Excellence Award for Best Practices in Sustainability for a joint project conducted with Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH). The award honors a new approach — commissioned by BWH and designed by EH&E — that “sets a new benchmark” and establishes a “model of best practices” for the improvement of fire and life safety compliance during and after construction of healthcare facilities.

The IFMA Award for Best Practices in Sustainability was one of four Facility Management Achievement awards presented at a ceremony in June 2014.

Construction, renovation, maintenance and tele/data upgrades are a constant in hospitals across the US. The complexity of these projects and the pace of the schedule can lead to unexpected compromises in firewall barriers – a broadly recognized problem in hospitals.

The new approach to fire stopping and life safety management, designed by EH&E and BWH, shows hospitals how to cost effectively resolve these deficiencies and how to set the foundation for maintaining life safety and firewall barrier systems throughout the life of their buildings.

EH&E and BWH collaborated on a program to address root causes of firewall breaches and permit proactive identification and resolution of fire and life safety deficiencies during construction. The program ensures issues are addressed during construction so the hospital starts with a safe and compliant building at the time it is occupied. The hospital saves costs because they are not inheriting fire safety deficiencies — responsibility for repairs is put back on the contractor. The program also includes implementation of a “continuous compliance” program to insure proper procedures are followed during renovation and maintenance activities throughout the life of the building.

This new fire stopping and life safety management program was implemented on new construction and renovation projects at BWH. The result is greater than 96% compliance with The Joint Commission and an estimated savings of more than $10,000 per each 10,000 square feet of floor area through the repair of firewall deficiencies prior to occupancy.

“This program improves our construction and maintenance performance and fosters collaboration amongst the teams, provides the documentation to have confidence in our continuous compliance, and maintains budget neutrality when we account for the significant costs avoided in having to address corrective actions after occupancy. This program is a home run for patients, employees, first responders and BWH,” said Stephen Dempsey, Director of Facilities Planning and Construction at Partners HealthCare, the umbrella organization for BWH.

White paper Explains New Lead-Free Water System Regulations – and How to Specify Valves to Comply

NOVI, MICHIGAN, USA, — July 8, 2014 — New Federal regulations governing lead content tightening safety restrictions dictate much lower lead content for certain potable water systems and components than in the past. A new whitepaper explains the new lead-free water system regulations for OEMs and contractors — and how to specify valves to comply. It is available to download at https://www.ascovalvenet.com/pdf/LiteratureRequest/Lead_Free_White_Paper.pdf.

Manufacturers of potable water equipment and systems — including drinking water fountains, R/O (reverse osmosis) systems, coffee machines, and commercial kitchen equipment — as well as equipment maintenance contractors are affected. Many in the industry remain uncertain how the new lead-free water regulations will impact their manufacturing and purchasing.

A new whitepaper, “Understanding the New Lead-Free Water System Regulations – and Choosing Valves to Comply,” provides useful information to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and contractors to ensure their equipment for potable water systems remains efficient, safe, and compliant.

The new paper outlines relevant sections of the new lead-free regulations, and then focuses on the choices facing specifiers and purchasers who need to select important components of the affected potable water equipment — two-way solenoid valves — to comply. The paper also considers the calculations that must be made to determine average lead content. Finally, it discusses the pros and cons of common valve materials (brass, composite/plastic, stainless steel, and lead-free brass), as well as other selection advantages for use in potable water systems.

Download the free whitepaper, “Understanding the New Lead-Free Water System Regulations – and Choosing Valves to Comply” — for OEM manufacturers and contractors of potable water systems — from https://www.ascovalvenet.com/pdf/LiteratureRequest/Lead_Free_White_Paper.pdf.

United Electric Controls’ Electromechanical Switches: Certified Worldwide to Meet Demanding Requirements Oil & Gas, Petrochemical, Refining industries

WATERTOWN, MASSACHUSETTS, USA — June 17, 2014 — United Electric Controls’ electromechanical switches are certified worldwide to meet the safety, alarm, and shutdown requirements of the oil & gas, petrochemical, and refining industries.

The rugged, vibration resistant, 316 Stainless Steel 12 Series Switchmeets the demanding requirements of critical hazardous area applications worldwide — as evidenced by its UL, cUL, ATEX, and pending IECEx compliance for Class I, Div. 1, Zone 1 areas.

The 12 Series is marked “dual seal” and complies with ANSI/ISA 12.27.01, regarding secondary seal requirements for sealing between electrical systems and flammable or combustible process fluids. Having the 12 Series certified “dual seal” and designing it as an integral safety measure, eliminates the cost and labor of connecting an external secondary seal between the process and electrical system for safety.

All metal wetted parts comply with NACE MR-0175, and the 316 stainless steel enclosure is certified to IP66 rating for long-term performance in the harshest environments.

At the heart of the 12 Series is a Belleville spring assembly – a small, conical washer – that snaps over when pressure is applied and snaps back upon pressure release. The fast, positive action provides set point stability, vibration resistance, and excellent repeatability and performance life.

Typical industries using 12 Series pressure, differential pressure, and temperature switches are oil & gas, and chemical & petro-chemical. Applications include safety control panels, line heaters, top drives, fire suppression, and rotating equipment.

The versatile electromechanical 120 Series Division 1/Zone 1 Pressure & Temperature Switch performs critical safety, alarm and shutdown functions in oil & gas, petrochemical, and refining industries.

Worldwide certifications include North America (cULus), Europe (ATEX, CE, IECEx), Russia (GOST), and more.

The 120 Series serves as its own junction box, allowing electrical termination via a terminal block inside the explosion proof enclosure. Various process connections and wetted materials, including NACE MR-0175 compliant sensors, meet most application requirements.

Additional features include:

  • Choice of one or two SPDT, optional DPDT output
  • Dual electrical conduit openings
  • Welded diaphragm or bellows sensor
  • Ultra-low pressure ranges

Fish Embryo Toxicology Testing is Better Alternative for Whole-Effluent Testing, Advises New Whitepaper from Microtest Laboratories

AGAWAM, MASS. – June 17, 2014 – As pharmaceutical, chemical and other manufacturers come under increased scrutiny for their Whole Effluent Toxicity (WET), a new methodology to measure WET — fish embryo toxicity (FET) testing — promises to better determine the potential environmental impact of their products and waste water on the environment.

Developed for environmental and hazard classification applications, FET testing provides many advantages in the testing of pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and pesticides — from their application in the field to their impact in sewage and water runoff from manufacturing facilities.

A new whitepaper titled Fish Embryo Toxicology Testing: The Better Alternative for Whole-Effluent Testing discusses FET testing, how it works, and its benefits. The paper is available for download at http://microtestlabs.com/fish-embryo-toxicology-testing from Microtest Laboratories.

FET testing utilizes the embryo of the Zebrafish and exposes it to various compounds to observe potential toxic effects, thus making the test ideal for use in monitoring or investigating environmental cases. FET is an approved OECD (Organization for Economic Co-Operative Development) guideline published in 2013.

Microtest Laboratories is deeply experienced in providing fish embryo toxicity testing, due to the expertise the company developed from creating its own Zebrafish Embryo Toxicity (ZET) test, which it provides as a preliminary screening method in the biocompatibility testing of medical devices and polymers.

For details on the benefits of FET testing, download the whitepaper, “Fish Embryo Toxicology Testing is the better alternative for whole-effluent testing,” from: http://microtestlabs.com/fish-embryo-toxicology-testing. For information on FET testing services from Microtest Laboratories, visit http://www.microtestlabs.com/zebrafish-embryos-testing, or call 1-413-786-1680, or toll-free 1-800-631-1680.
