Article from Straits Times, Breaking News (23 September 2013): Firms must show they tried to hire S'poreans first. By Toh Yong Chuan From August next year, firms that want to hire foreign professionals must prove that they have tried to hire Singaporeans. These employers have to advertise for Singaporeans to fill the vacancies in a national jobs bank administered by the Singapore Workforce Development Agency, the Manpower Ministry said on Monday. Firms with 25 or fewer staff will be exempted from advertising rule, or those hiring for jobs paying ,000 and above a month.

System Syzer is an HVAC tool that helps with system design.  The application is based on the original plastic wheel calculator invented by Gil Carlson of Bell & Gossett.  It was first introduced in 1963 and has since been distributed to hundreds of thousands of engineers and tradesmen.

The tool is made up several different calculators:

  • There is a calculator to determine the friction loss and velocity through various      pipe types & sizes based on your fluid conditions.
  • Use System Syzer to determine the relationship between fluid temperatures, system flow and heating/cooling load.
  • Included is a Cv tool that shows the relationship between Cv, flow and head.  Again,      this calculator accounts for fluid properties.
  • There is a Pipe Length/Pressure Drop tool that is handy with the other calculators to view the relationship between pipe length, friction loss and total head loss.

We have also bundled the Circuit Setter® / Triple Duty Valve calculator that is very useful for balance contractors.   Use it during design to help predetermine valve settings and out in the field to determine flow through the valves based on pressure drop readings.
