Frost & Sullivan on the Fragmented North American Positive Displacement Pumps Market

From Yahoo! Finance: Based on its recent analysis of the positive displacement (PD) pumps market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Pump Solutions Group™ (PSG), a Dover Corporation (Dover) company, with the 2010 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Customer Value Enhancement.

There is a dearth of multiple equipment manufacturers in the PD pumps market; most participants offer individual products that end users are forced to piece together either by themselves or through distributors. Thus, vendors that provide complete solution-sets will have a strong advantage amidst diverse end-users. Dover has edged out competition by establishing PSG, which consolidates all of Dover's individual brands, including Wilden®, Blackmer®, Griswold™, Almatec®, Mouvex® and Neptune™, into one organization that is designed to offer cohesive product solution-sets to customers.

Geothermal heating puts homes in touch with the Earth

From the Seattle Times: Home homeowners chase down high-tech solar panels and efficient appliances to make their houses environmentally friendly. Others eschew the latest technology in favor of something far more basic: caves.

Geothermal heating and cooling systems work just as caves do: The temperature underground is more moderate than the air above. If it's 85 degrees outside, it's cool in the cave. If it's 25 degrees outside, the cave is still 50 to 60 degrees.
