SELGA-COAT® CHROME: Selective Galvanic Plating of Functional Hard Chrome Layers
| By AHC Oberflächentechnik
In nearly all areas of the automotive industry and mechanical engineering, technical hard chrome layers are applied to impart components with a property profile for their intended use: hardness, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, tribological properties, as well as thermal and chemical resistance. The very good tribological behaviour of functional hard chrome layers is indicated by its relatively high original hardness, strong adhesive, constantly renewing oxide layer and anti-adhesive properties. In addition, the metal features a hexagonal lattice micro-structure when plated. Therefore, the wear-intensive frictional surfaces are absent in the micro-structure.

Anodic and Hard-Anodic Aluminium and Magnesium Coatings
| By AHC Oberflächentechnik
For some time now, the trend in the selection of construction materials has moved towards light metals, including aluminium and magnesium alloys. The reasons are obvious: weight reduction above all means energy savings with fewer heavy masses that have to be moved. The more light metal alloys employed in new areas of application, the higher the requirements for wear and corrosion protection. And here is where one of Europe’s leading surface treatment job shop AHC Oberflächentechnik comes into play.

AHC Oil & Gas Coatings
| By AHC Oberflächentechnik
With today's oil & gas exploration pushing deeper, drilling tools have to contend with increasingly demanding conditions. Wear, corrosion and extreme temperatures create one of the most demanding environments known to design engineers. Making matters worse, remote and offshore locations add a logistic challenge that requires your equipment to outperform and keep on drilling. Engineered surface treatments can do an incredible job protecting equipment in harsh environments, giving you that edge required to operate faster, longer and safer.

New coating systems by AHC Oberflächentechnik protect aluminium-cast alloys from corrosion
| By AHC Oberflächentechnik
Aluminium materials with a particularly high content of silicon can be treated for corrosion resistance only in very limited ways. Conventional anodic coatings can only partially cover this demand due to the inherent silicon structures of the surfaces in question. AHC Oberflächentechnik based in Kerpen has developed two new coating systems that offer more possibilities for corrosion-resistant functional aluminium surfaces, especially cast alloys.

Bender Ground Fault Protection - Ships and Offshore Platforms
| By Bender
Ungrounded systems onboard ships and offshore platforms are continuously monitored by a Bender ground detector. Connected between the active conductors and ground (the hull), the detector superimposes a small measuring voltage onto the system. If a ground fault occurs, the measuring circuit is closed and a small measauring current will flow. The measuring current is proportional to the insulation resistance (the magnitude of the ground fault), and is evaluated by the detector.

BlueCielo - Improving Operational Efficiency at RWE
| By BlueCielo ECM Solutions
With almost 60,000 employees supplying energy to over 16 million electricity customers and 7 million gas customers, RWE AG is one of the leading power generation companies in Europe. The company produces energy by regular and brown power stations, as well as nuclear and regenerative power plants. RWE continually works on methods to improve and optimize the efficiency of its new and existing power stations. Optimization is a key aspect in the engineering, design and construction of new and existing power stations. Efficiency is an important factor in the planning of the operations and maintenance of the power stations.

PLEXOS Study of the Italian Power System and Market in the Medium-Term: Realities and Expectations of Renewables Integration
| By Energy Exemplar
One of the main developments of the last few years on the Italian power market has been the significant increase of renewable capacity in the form of wind and solar power plants. Using a PLEXOS dataset based on data available from Terna and various utilities, we have modeled the Italian power market considering the six geographical zones and created the medium term expected scenarios from the Terna information available for 2012 and the published 2013 grid development plan.
