Highpressure Safety

Supercritical fluids are high-pressure compressible fluids which contain a high level of stored energy that can cause damage if it is abruptly released to atmosphere (unlike high pressure liquids which store little energy because they are not compressible). To prevent any problems associated with pressure release all components are built to withstand pressures much higher than the operating pressure and are certified by regulatory authorities. Safety valves are placed at all critical points in the system and a pressure switch (electromechanical) stops the pressure source (the pump) in case of overpressure. The pump may also incorporate a device to prevent it reaching pressures higher than the maximum operating pressure. Finally, sensors placed all around the system are automatically monitored to prevent any safety problems.

Solar Panel Basics

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
