How To Do A Better Job Than Jack

Spoiler alert – Jack didn’t do a great job maintaining the Overlook. The hotel’s overworked boiler was an ongoing metaphor for Jack’s own simmering insanity. And as his temper did, so did the boiler explode.

Proper maintenance of that boiler might have avoided the fate that eventually hit Jack.  Avoid unqualified maintenance workers as was shown here and hire a professional. But, you can perform some small forms of maintenance on your own. Depending on the type of system you own – forced air, hot water or steam — you can conduct various maintenance tests and clean areas that require routine maintenance. Well-maintained boilers function more efficiently and ensure that your family will be safe from potential hazards:

  1. Examine your boiler’s vent connection pipe and chimney, because these parts deteriorate over time. Determine that no holes or cracks are present and that all areas that should be sealed are intact.
  2. Inspect your heat exchanger for proper function. Heat exchangers typically leak water, so if you notice a water leak, that’s likely the problem.
  3. Readjust the controls on your boiler so they provide the optimum levels of efficiency and heat. The more efficient a system, the more money your family will save on heating costs.

How Much Petrol Costs Internationally

petrol1

“Finland has produced so many brilliant distance runners because back home it costs $2.50 a gallon for gas.”  Esa Tikkannen, 1979

“It’s better to have beer in hand than gas in tank.” Unknown

Some people would say petrol prices are one of the highest outgoings from their budget – but this isn’t the case universally. So what causes this?

The differences in gas prices across countries are due to the various taxes and subsidies for gasoline.  All countries have access to the same petroleum prices in international markets, but then decide to impose different taxes. In some cases, like Venezuela, the government even subsidises gasoline and therefore people there pay close to nothing to drive their cars.

Petrol2

So, assuming you have a 60 liter car, the cost of one tank will vary considerably.  A tank of petrol in Venezuela would buy you a candy bar ($0.60). A tank of petrol in Norway, the most expensive on the list, would get you a weekend holiday ($153). In China you could get an IPod ($81). In the UK you could get a family trip to the capital ($129). And finally in the USA, you could get dinner for two in a mid range restaurant ($58).

In fact production of gas is relatively the same universally. The crude oil, which is a mixture of hundreds of liquids of different boiling points is put into a huge column and heated from the bottom. The liquids with the lowest boiling points rise up the column and are collected from the upper regions. Other liquids are collected part way down and heavy oils are collected from the bottom. Tar is found to collect at the base of the column. Petrol is one of the low boiling liquids that are collected near the top. So in fact savings could be made from more efficient production processes, like updating their equipment.

Amazing Scenery Built from the Money of Thousands of Oil Tanks

There are countries that really benefit of their huge oil reserves. Here are examples of some famous areas where oil has generated a luxury lifestyle.

Burj Al Arab Island

The United Arab Emirates has the world’s 7th largest oil reserves. The country is also a high income economy with the world’s 19th highest nominal GDP per capita.  Due to its high oil and gas reserves, the Emirates has been able to build the world’s tallest tower that rises to over 800 meters in the skyline of Dubai.

Burj ul Arab Tennis court

Besides the  Burj Khalifa tower, Dubai is also known for the world’s only seven star top-end hotel, the Burj Al Arab. On the hotel’s helipad above 210 meters from the ground, they have arranged some great stunts including Tiger Woods teeing off as well as Andre Agassi and Roger Federer playing tennis. In another Emirate city, Abu Dhabi, the Yas Marina circuit organizes its annual formula one grand prix in area with hotels and a Ferrari Theme Park.

The world’s richest country per capita Qatar has become one of the world’s largest centers in finance and education. The country’s 25 billion barrel oil excess has enabled it to build a beautiful skyline in the capital of Doha. Qatar is also know for Al Jazeera Networks‘ headquarters as well as organizing the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Shanghai Metal Corporation is proud to be able to offer internationally standardized oil tanks for companies worldwide. Whether you drill in Dallas or Doha, we will ensure your oil will not spill.
