Thursday, May 11th, 2017

Warren Smith & Partners’ Hydraulic Technical Manager, Tom Wise, delivered a very informative presentation on ‘Domestic Hot Water Circulation Systems’ at the AHSCA’s most recent general meeting on Tuesday 9th May.

The presentation covered the basics of domestic hot water circulation systems as well as Tom sharing his knowledge on:

  • The importance of keeping the velocity in the system down to mitigate erosion – corrosion;
  • Common dos and don’ts found in hot water systems such as the sizing the balancing valves and where to locate the hot water return pump;
  • Steps to sizing a domestic hot water circulation system including how to calculate the flow rate and friction loss;
  • Ensuring you select the correct pump to meet your design velocity, including tips on how you can improve where the system curve meets the pump curve; and
  • Information on the range of balancing valves and hot water circulation pumps that are available and what each of their benefits/applications are.

Fire Fighter for a Day

Friday, April 7th, 2017

Report by Jonathan Mousdell

Last Wednesday 29 April 2017, some of the members of our Hydraulic and Fire services teams attended the Fire & Rescue NSW State Training College at Alexandria. Team members included Jonathan, John, Daniel, Tom, Chris, Chinmay, Mark, Ralph, Manu, Oscar and Roman.
The guys were taken through a hands on approach into what fire fighters have to deal with when attending an emergency, in the vision that when designing fire systems we may have a better understanding of how their operations are carried out.
It was a great afternoon and we’d like to thank FRNSW for the opportunity.

Water Wizards vs. Yahoo7

Friday, February 17th, 2017

Game 10 Report | By Nick Watts | 8 February 2017

Sitting with equal points on the ladder and only a handful of goals to separate each team it was a crucial fixture for both sides going into the game. The tension was palpable and Yahoo7 were the first to feel the keen sting of that pressure early on in the piece when they were a touch unlucky in putting the ball into their own net off a well-hit cross from John Chaumont.

Rattled from the own goal the opposition defence were again caught off-guard when Jonathan Mousdell charged into the box. Using some clever footwork and a strong boot he found the back of the net to put the Water Wizards two up. It seemed the win was inevitable as the Yahoo7 goal posts were continually rocked and the keeper tested by Laura Shaugnessy who never let them take a breath all game.

Yahoo7 certainly knew it was all or nothing and even brought the keeper out of goals to assist in the field. The tactic paid off. Even with some strong keeping from Michael Cahalane to knock away at least a dozen shots Yahoo7 were able to equalise before the break.

With the second half underway it was clear that if there was going to be a winner to this game something extra would be required. It would be the Water Wizards to produce the special moment when Chris Augostin, although surrounded by opposition players, managed to pull off a brilliant penetrating pass that found Nicole in space and one-on-one with the keeper. With a cool head Nicole slotted the ball past the keeper to once again put the Water Wizards ahead.

The game was not without some controversy. Jonathon decided to employ a few extra limbs and was pulled up for handball. A second handball would earn him a red card and an early trip to the showers. Down a player for the final minutes of the game the Water Wizards kept pushing and were able to hold out for the victory.

This week’s fixture presents the Water Wizards with a chance to close the gap on second placed LEAPsters. After last week’s win the Water Wizards are now only six points away out of first place and with the top spot in their sights will be working even harder to improve their title chances.
