Come Fly With Me

Come Fly With Me

It is great to have some hot, dry weather in the UK lately instead of our usual rain filled grey skies! It gave me the chance to get out into the garden, if not to work then at least to sit in it. I always find it relaxing to watch the bees extracting the pollen from the flowers. However, such weather also brings a couple of unwelcome visitors, namely flies and wasps. They can be as troublesome as cement blocking in a silo or fly ash building up on boiler tubes.

Safe Silo Cleaning Guaranteed!

Safe Silo Cleaning Guaranteed!

In a ‘previous life’ I was Mill Manager in a large animal feed mill in Northern Ireland before I moved to England to look after several feed mills. Of course I knew all the plant guys well and therefore I was very sad to learn that one them, Gerry, had been killed. He was inside a raw material silo swinging on a rope trying to clean it when another operative diverted fresh material into the silo and literally drowned him. Over the years I have learnt of many other such fatalities within all types of silo, for example 26 of them occurred in the US alone in 2010, and that is why we at Primasonics designed a Safe, Remote & Effective means of cleaning silos which eliminates the need for manual entry.

It is ‘Big Band’ time again!

I keep apologising for being a committed Big Band fan, I really don't know why, it is perfectly legal!

One of the most common tunes played by big bands worldwide is 'Sing, Sing, Sing' which may seem a strange name for this instrumental piece. It was composed in 1936 by Louis Prima (the founder of Primasonics? – no that's me) and did have lyrics but was quickly adopted by the big bands of the era as a pacy instrumental.

My Personal Carbon Cycle

My Personal Carbon Cycle

Have you ever heard of the Carbon Cycle? Well in my case it started in my academic and business life in my late teens and has continued to this present day. Let me explain. My academic career started in the Department of Organic Chemistry, Queens University, Belfast, Northern Ireland and I just loved it. I had a fabulous boss, a real lady, Dr Barbara Auret and my main job was in making rare organic chemicals to be used by PHD students in their work.
