How to make sure you stick to your New Year’s resolutions – an engineer’s guide
New Year’s resolutions have been a tradition since the times of the ancient Babylonians. Pretty much as we do today, they promised their gods at the start of each year that they would return borrowed objects and pay their debts. (On that note, those of us in the PVL office would like to ask David Almond, our intrepid head of sales and marketing, ‘Where’s our stapler?’)
However, according to this report Blue Monday was the day when most of us allowed our resolutions to lapse. Nevertheless, if you decided to lose weight, quit smoking or learn a new language, there may still be hope for you.
Here are a few engineering focussed resolutions you will be able to keep without too much effort:
- Lose wait (you read it correctly and yes, it is a terrible pun!)
Here at PVL we make sure we trim down waiting times for pressure transducers. PVL’s new exclusive range of pressure transducers from Cincinnati’s Transducers Direct, the unique TD1000 series, can be delivered overnight. They can be digitally configured and we can programme the transducers for you in house, massively reducing delivery times! That’s what I call loosing wait!
- Quit smoking
Give up the smoke and make sure your plant is completely safe with the ATEX and IECEx certifications on our flameproof electric pressure switches!
The range includes high pressure switches, the low pressure FC series switches, vacuum pressure switches and electric pressure switches. Manufactured in India by Orion Instruments, the switches range in pressure from 1.5mbar to 200bar, and compliment PVL’s existing range of Elettrotec ATEX pressure switches.
- Learn a new language
For the more academically oriented amongst us, learning a new language is top of our New Year’s resolutions lists. But German, French, Spanish or Italian are difficult to grasp and let’s face it; everybody speaks English anyway, don’t they?
But if you’d like to make a start by learning the translations for flow switch, level switch, flow indicator, and level indicator (and let’s face it who doesn’t!) you could do worse than visit www.kelco.eu. PVL are the pan-European distributor for Kelco’s innovative range of all plastic switches so we’ve helpfully provided translated pages.
You’ll also be able to learn the German for corrosion-proof, the French for no wetted metal parts, the Spanish for ideal for sea water, or the Italian for ideal for acids and alkalis which are obviously really useful for many day-to-day situations!
So, if you want your resolutions to last longer than the cold turkey, contact us. Trimming down the waiting times, ditching the smoke or learning the language of switches, has never been so easy! Give PVL a call on 01892 664499 and we’ll help make sure your engineering resolutions reach fruition.
