  • Spill Equipment - Great for the Environment.

    With all of the changes happening globally at the moment the environment has become one of the biggest priorities, so how can spill equipment help out in some cases?
    Do you work with oil? Either making it, digging for it or transporting it? Well then you will know more than anyone how often it spills into oceans and rivers and can affect the surrounding environment quite dramatically. Oil spill absorbents are one of the best ways to absorb these spills, they soak up the oil or fuel and repel the water, ensuring that you leave the river or sea as similar as it was before the spill as possible. These absorbents can then be disposed of in the correct way. Availablr usually in a wide range of shapes and sizes there isnt a spill these absorbents cant help out with.
    So if you are working withing the oil business somewhere remeber the environment and how oil absorbents can help you out when spills occur. A great way to clean up is second only to no spills in the first place!
    And remeber JEC has a huge range of these products available to help you when you have a spill.

  • What do the different colours stand for when it comes to Absorbents?

    If you are thinking about stocking up on spill equipment for your home or business but don't know what you need, take a look at our guide below and make sure you get the right kit for the job!

    General Purpose : A general purpose spill could be anything from water to food. They are non hazardous everyday spills and if this is the kid of thing you need to protect yourself from then the absorbents you are after are usually grey.

    Chemical : Chemical and hazardous spills can be incredibly dangerous for the surrounding environment and people and it is very important that they are cleaned up properly, the absorbents and spill kits you need for this are usually yellow so that they stand out.

    Oil and Fuel : Oil absorbents are very important expecially when the oil spills are in rivers and ocean's as they can soak up the oil and repel the water, helping the environment the spull occured to return to normal as quickly as possible. These absorbents are usually grey.

    The above is true of most places but obviously there is always products that can differ. Sometimes chemical spills are pink.

  • Where does my Road Salt come from?

    One of the most popular ways to ensure that your neighbourhood or drive way is safe from ice and snow, or for the council and government to make sure that all the roads are as accident free as possible is to spread road salt across the surface. The salt reacts with the ice and melts it without leaving behind a frozen, watery and slippy surface. Unlike popular belief, the salt that is used on roads is not like the salt that you would use at the dinner table, it is carved from rocks in mines and is much more of a brown colour. The mines were formed by inland seas that no longer exist, but who's salt deposits underground can still be found. Huge machines mine the salt out from under the ground where it is put on a conveyor belt and crushed ready to be bagged for you and the local authority to stop accidents by adding much needed traction to the road. The amount of salt spread over surfaces depends on the weather at the time, if there is already a build up of ice and snow much more salt will be used to melt the ice and add traction. If the bad weather had been forecast but is not yet apparent then the salt will be thinly spread across the road to stop any ice forming in the first place. You can also use this as a tip for doing your own road or driveway.
    Remember here at JEC we have a wide range of salt spreaders for both domestic and industrial use, as well as models that come with salt. It is worth mentioning that with any road salt, there can be a large delivery cost for buying it on its own and can sometimes only be provided on a pallet with a certain amount of bags on so make sure that you know what you need.
    Give us a call on 01258 488398 or email sales@jecltd.com if you need any help or further information today!

  • Weather News for Winter 2016

    We all remember just how up and down last winter was, partly due to the El Nino storm that hit America and partly because of a strong westerly phase of the Quasi-Biennial Oscillation. But so far this year all weather forecasts are pointing away from another winter like this.
    This year insteadwinter-dec of El Nino it is La Nina we all have to think about and alot of the long range satelites suggest that this will be in full swing by winter. The other factor to the weather this coming winter is the solar activity. Most colder winters tend to correlate with low solar activity, while this isnt proven it can give a good idea as to what the weather will be like. This winter is looking like it will be a low solar period, so if you take these two factors and look back over the years you can see what the weather could be doing. This data suggests that the early winter months will be very cold as will December. But January and Fabruary have a fairly average outlook with some sunnier days.
    The mixture of the La Nina and the low solar activity could mean snow for over the festive period.

  • April to June Quarter Shows a Strong Industrial Growth in the UK

    This April to June quarter the indutrial output has grown at its fastest rate in 17 years at 2.1%. This is a much bigger improvement on the first quarter of the year. Although the quarterly figures are growing there is evidence to suggest that the month to month increase is infact slowing down. Despite of this apparently very few respondents have been affected by the EU referendum result from June.
    The strong GDP growth from April soon eased off throughout May and June according to the latest production and growth figures.
    Its not all good though, there was a huge deficit of £5.1bn in June, compared to £4.2bn the month before, but despite this the UK still has a healthy export service to the EU as we exported up to £12bn in goods in June, which compared to the £500m in May is a huge increase.
    April was the best month for growth as output grew to 2% compared to an increase of just 0.1% by June.
    There is some people that say that perhaps this growth is the result of the economy slowing down dramatically after the June 23rd EU vote and that now everything is starting to die down we have 'hit a manufaturing highpoint this year'
    There is still alot of concern from either side of this arguement and it is in no way certain that this will continue and even if it does there is no evidence to suggest that any kind of trade increase could offset the cost of the leave vote.

  • $175 million to be paid by BP after Oil Spill

    Oil giant BP have been ordered to pay $175 million to their share holders by the end of the year after it was proved they were lieing about the amount of oil leaking daily from their pipeline into the Gulf of Mexico. They predicted it was between 1000 and 5000 barrels a day when in fact it was ten times that!BP got off lightly considering the original sum suggested was $2.5 billion, this worked out well for them as when the final amount was revealed their share price increased by 2%.
    This settlement is solely for this particular spill, BP are still waiting to hear back from thier Deepwater Horizon rig exploded and killed 11 people while spilling 4.9 million barrels of crude oil into the Gulf. They have had to put $56.4 billion away for the estimated cost of settlements, clean up and fines.

  • Are Students that do not go to University overlooked by Prosepctive Employers?

    As a company that has a lot to offer vocational studies classes in schools when it comes to storage and industrial equipment we have learnt that these students are being overlooked by prospective employers when it comes to leaving school and finding a job.A report done by the Lords social mobility comitee suggests that too much academic focus is put on children at school and it is too narrow for some. The pupils that would thrive in a more kinetic or vocational class are being left behind because of a lack of higher education qualifications.
    The other problem facing these kids is that the careers advise handed out to them is to stay in education, so those that are not carrying on their studies are often trapped in thier first job.
    The league table obssessed school system is leaving the pupils that are mid-ability upset and left behind with no morale to contibue within school. Also the stigma associated with vocational courses can be a problem, kids taking part are often bullied by the other students for not being as clever. This is not the case, every child is different.
    Employers also do not know what the achivements or qualifications the pupils are recieving are when they are not GCSE's, A Levels or Degrees which makes it hard for them to have faith in the person they are employing.
    This also means young people that are considering their options when it comes to choosing between further education and a job are bombarded with information and are confused. Often meaning that the pupils that would like to go down the employment route are excluded as the univeristy choice is being pushed on them.
    One answer to this problem is to have independant careers advise in schools, so that the kids are being influenced and helped by people who are not repliant on their grades. Also some people have suggested stopping the national curriculum at age 14 rather than 16, giving the children a choice of subjects to continue studying, along with voactional courses.
