Exciting Long-Term Opportunities for Peace River Contractors
Out of an estimated 1.7 trillion barrels of oil in Alberta’s heavy oil reserves, close to 170 billion barrels are considered economically recoverable with the help of modern technology. This makes the province the third largest crude oil reserve on the planet. With such intensive concentration of the world’s future fuels, feeding the ever-growing international oil demand, it is no wonder that new projects have mushroomed in recent years.

Diesel Generator Lubrication - Maintenance Tips
Much like another of our major internal organs, the oil pan functions in a similar fashion to the liver. It is the prime filter of impurities in our system. Whatever combustion impurities exist inside the walls of the engine, none will avoid detection in the oil pan. An inspection of the oil during a routine change will inform the maintenance technician whether that combustion is complete or suffering from serious problems.

Trinity Power Serves Up a Cool Solution
Data-centre renovation is a hot business these days, as Trinity Power recently discovered. We were called in to help in just such an effort – though we weren't there to supply power to the building’s hundreds of servers. Instead, our customer needed a short-turnaround solution to ensure a number of temporary air conditioning units and fans kept running while the building’s own electrical systems were being upgraded, so all those servers c... read more >
Generator Battery Maintenance - The Juice
The battery is the defibrillator of the electrical generating systems world. The battery produces huge amounts of energy when called upon. That energy fuels the electric starting motor that turns over the generator until compression. Diesel fills the combustion chamber, the pistons pressure the fuel, combustion is achieved and the motor is off and running. It’s most important job performed, the battery recedes from importance until called... read more >
Generator Fuel System – Garbage In Garbage Out
If the engine is the heart of the machine, then the fuel is its blood. We use this analogy because when fuel problems exist, the engine will eventually start to sputter. Garbage In equals Garbage Out.
Technically speaking, in such situations, combustion isn't complete, or, at least, as ideal and total as it needs to be. As a result, unburned diesel will accumulate in the combustion chamber. An engine can only run as cleanly and efficie... read more >
