Leetsdale, PA - Schroeder Industries, a recognized leader in filtration and fluid conditioning products, introduces its new Automatic Cyclone Strainer (ACS).  The ACS is designed for the intermittent filtration of solid particles from low-viscosity fluids such as surface water, coolant, and process water.
The ACS has a flow rate of up to 525 GPM, up to 230 psi, a filtration rating of 200 to 3,000 µm, and is particularly suited to high levels of contamination and large fluctuations in the solid particle content of the untreated water.  The pre-filtration of solid particles at a high density means that the filter surface area can take a higher load and the filter can be relatively smaller. Back-flushing of the filter or use of cleaning fluids or chemicals is not required with the ACS, and filter elements are cleaned solely by surface flushing with untreated fluids.  The ACS provides flexibility by integrating into existing systems in almost any quantity and can be adapted to the required flow rates.
Schroeder Industries designs, manufactures and markets filtration products for the hydraulic, biofuel and processing industries. Australia has no choice but to consider nuclear power as part of its future energy mix, leading nuclear industry advocate, Dr Ziggy Switkowski, said in Adelaide today.

Biosecurity Queensland has confirmed it's investigating a Queensland nursery linked to the outbreak of a virus that's crippled the Northern Territory's melon industry, but has refused to provide exact details about the nursery, or nurseries, involved. Determining where cucumber green mottle mosaic virus (CGMMV) came from has been described as like finding 'a needle in a haystack'. The virus originated overseas, and has devastated the Territory's horticulture industry since it was found on melon farms near Katherine in the Northern Territory seven weeks ago, and more recently on a pumpkin farm.
Despite the prevailing theory that the virus accidentally entered the country via imported seed, Mr Ross says all the seeds he grows are tested by the relevant seed companies prior to them entering Australia. Federal Treasurer's dismissal of Kidman bid was a 'political stunt', according to a rural property agent.

Information generated from the approach is used to create ownership for lanholders and promote change in land and stream management at a sub-catchment scale and larger. In a catchment the size of the Fitzroy it is difficult for individuals and groups to easily see the relationships between land management practice on farm and resultant offsite impacts such as algal blooms, pesticide contamination and salinity. In the Neighbourhood Catchment approach, we propose that the local catchment is an appropriate scale that can integrate and engage landholders, and achieve ownership and promote change in resource management practices in the Fitzroy.
Monitoring of catchment condition, and resultant water quality was conducted in the two focus catchments.
To aid in the extension of improved land management practice and the Neighbourhood Catchment approach, relevant information was collated into a visual presentation. To simplify the information contained in the storm events, data on ground cover was entered into the GIS.
Many schools and community groups seek a broad overview of natural resource issues within the Fitzroy catchment.
The presentation animates broad scale coverages on landuse in the Fitzroy Basin to set the scene.
There has been as increasing demand by the community for Neighbourhood catchment multimedia material. Importantly, the Fitzroy Basin Association who represents the key stakeholders in the region have endorsed and adopted the Neighbourhood Catchment approach to devolve funding grants and deliver on-ground works in the Fitzroy catchment. Several departmental agencies have been engaged with material from the Neighbourhood Catchment presentations through the Queensland launch of the National Action Plan for Salinity and Water Quality. It is intended that the Neighbourhood Catchment approach will be used to achieve change in five adjacent Neighbourhood Catchments.
Use of a GIS has allowed the visualisation of the current state of the landscape, and observation of the downstream impacts of unsustainable landuse on water quality and aquatic environments.

In addition, you may witness the elaborate courtship dance of Victoria’s Riflebird, a showy bird of paradise found only in this region of Australia. Your guide will lead you on a gentle hike in Wooroonooran National Park, winding your way among trees with giant buttress roots, the showy fronds of the majestic king fern, and the star-shaped flowers of the red tulip oak. You take an easy walk through the jungle and emerge at Josephine Falls, where Josephine Creek plunges down a gorgeous set of cascades. From colourful corals that take whimsical shapes like broccoli, brains and baskets to a host of fish such as the chocolate-dipped damsel, the Picasso triggerfish and the giant Maori wrasse, you learn how to identify the most common creatures at the reef.
Today at the outer Barrier Reef you witness why this is one of the most complex natural systems on Earth. At its height (during the summer breeding season), as many as 20,000 birds nest on the island. For snorkelers, giant clams, angel, butterfly and parrot fish, turtles, sea stars and corals of a thousand hues are all within reach.
You can extend your holiday in Cairns or you are transferred back to the Cairns Airport for your flight back home. It is important to note that Australian diving standards are some of the most rigorous in the world, and certain medical conditions will require a medical exam by a certified Australian dive doctor even if you are ALREADY certified.
Springtime (September - November) is the most predicable, and days tend to be warm to hot with little rainfall.
To be "certified" means you have taken a course (typically about 4 days long) and you now hold an Open Water Diver certification card from PADI, SSI, NAUI or other internationally recognized SCUBA diving organisation.
You can do this kind of diving with a dive instructor even if you are not certified (see above). The jellyfish are found close to shore—they breed in estuaries and very very rarely can they make it to the outer Great Barrier Reef. By taking this trip, you are supporting grassroots indigenous tourism ventures and encouraging Aboriginal pride in culture.
This includes supporting farmers by purchasing locally-grown fruits and vegetables for you on your trip. On your tour, your group will be presented with a certificate detailing the significance of this gift to the environment.

In addition, the tropical savanna woodlands boast eastern grey kangaroos, agile and whiptail wallabies, wallaroos, possums and gliders.
Your guide will teach you techniques for shooting in these light conditions while you look for the brilliant blue Ulysses Butterfly, the giant tree frog, and the musky rat kangaroo, which are commonly spotted in this area. Nature trails on this stunning property take you to waterfalls, a ring of giant turpentine trees, and a favourite swimming hole of the platypus.
Your guide will help you look with torches (flashlights) for unique mammals and marsupials like Lumholtz’s Tree-kangaroos, Green Ringtail Possums, Sugar Gliders, and numerous other kangaroo and wallaby species that live in the forest.
Trail’s end is an enchanting set of falls, where Douglas Creek drops in a narrow, uninterrupted, 50 meter fall from a basalt parapet. Below the falls, boulders surround a fun swimming hole and a natural water slide down a smooth sloping rock face. You find out about threatened species and coral predators–such as the Crown of Thorns—and the consequences of climate change and human activity on the reef.
Snorkelling can be done right off the sand cay, giving you access to beauties such as luminescent parrot fish, the chocolate-dipped damsel, and the Picasso triggerfish. Among the 1,800 species of fish and 450 species of coral, you can expect to see Wally the giant wrasse, fan corals, sea cucumbers and just about the entire cast of “Finding Nemo”.
Although dive medical exams (at your cost, approximately $70 AUD) are available at a 24-hour clinic in Cairns, you need to know before the dive trip that you need this medical exam. You can expect hot days with occasional tropical storms, producing lush green hillsides and plenty of waterfalls. In some circumstances you may be able to dive, with a certified professional (dive guide), at an additional cost.
If you answer YES to any of the medical questions (for example, do you have asthma or take medication for migraines?) further medical clearance may be required. We also give you a list of where to buy locally-made crafts and souvenirs so you can continue this support as well. For more information on how we donate to The Turtle Rehabilitation Centre and other environmental groups, see Philanthropy and Partnerships.

These applications often have terrain and work environments that can create significant limitations and challenges for traditional wire line communications.
When the centre received Quality System certification in 1994 it was the first company in the field of research and development to do so in Finland.
As energy use in these two nations soar, IEA predicts that global emissions of greenhouse gasses will jump 45% by 2030, with China, India and the Middle East accounting for approximately 75% of that projected growth. Once the curved faces are machined you have lost your opportunity created by the strait edges. From there, the seed is thought to have been grown out at a nursery before being sent to the Northern Territory.However, Biosecurity Queensland's chief plant protection officer, Sarah Corcoran, says there are still other ways the virus could have entered the country. Endemic species to Far North Queensland play a large role in your adventure: your guide will endeavour to introduce you to Lumholz’ tree kangaroos, ringtail possums, the giant southern cassowary and others. He has also worked with community conservation groups, guided eco-tours all over Australia, written countless popular wildlife articles and presented wildlife and conservation talks to people from all walks of life.
You learn how staff rescue native wildlife and then facilitate their release into this natural wonderland.
This magical section of the park also has a special connection to the Wari and Dulgubara Aboriginal people who once lived here. More importantly, you learn about the real hazards at the reef (like the innocent-looking cone shell) versus the imagined ones (like scary sharks) fueled by Hollywood myths. Some of the medical conditions that may disqualify you from diving or will require a medical exam are, but not limited to, the following: Diabetes, Asthma, Migraine Headaches, Previous Head Injuries. However, the tiny Irukandji jellyfish has been known on occasion to slip through the nets, and this is most often where people have been stung.
If we take strong action and global warming turns out to be no big deal, we have needlessly incurred a serious economic cost. This is the first order that has been received for the roll refurbishing workshop in Taicang, which was inaugurated in May 2009. You may encounter the showy Victoria’s Riflebird or the elusive duck-billed platypus in their natural habitats, but sightings of the Aussie classics – kangaroos, crocs and koalas—are guaranteed for you at a wildlife park. He was even sponsored by Land Rover to drive right around Australia in 80 days and write about his experiences including the best wildlife locations and places to camp. You leave with a greater understanding of the reef environment and an appreciation of the natural wonder you are about to experience.
It is a very painful sting, but there have been only 2 confirmed deaths in Australia due to the Irukandji jellyfish. Should a participant need to cancel their trip for any reason, our cancellation policy applies. If we fail to take strong action and global warming turns out to be catastrophic, we have sacrificed the entire planet and everybody's future. Payment is based on the Siemens VAI “cost per ton” model and is orientated to the tonnage produced on the casters. These increases, in turn, nearly double loaded traction speed and gradeability, and improve hydraulic performance. You spend a lot of time testing."Mr Ross says in addition to the regulations in place by authorities, he has his own on-farm biosecurity practices to limit the chance of disease entering his property.
Martin is always in demand for his writing and photography skills, and is involved in several wildlife research projects including climate change impacts on the Wet Tropics biodiversity and canopy bridges for arboreal fauna for James Cook University. In addition, some of the centre’s laboratory operations have been accredited as official ‘measurement laboratories’. He grows his seedlings south of Maryborough, Queensland, in an area surrounded by cane fields. He believes the distance from horticulture regions is a buffer between existing fruit and vegetable diseases and his seedlings.
