How to Choose the Insulation Material for LSAW Steel Pipe

There is standards and specifications for the selection of thermal insulation materials for LSAW steel pipes, and thermal insulation materials have high requirements for the temperature and density of the heat conduction system during operation. This requires us to pay attention when select insulation material for pipes.

1. The smaller the thermal conductivity of the thermal insulation material, the better. If it is an insulating material, the thermal conductivity will be higher.

2. Choose a reasonable capacity value. Generally, the capacity of the insulation material is small, and its thermal conductivity will be small, so the corresponding mechanical strength will increase.

3. The compressive strength of the insulation material cannot be less than 3kg/cm.

4. Strong water absorption, the heat insulating material will reduce its performance after absorbing water, and it will accelerate the attachment to the metal.

Changsha Xiangjia Metal Materical Co., Ltd. the Steel Pipe Division of ADTO GROUP, is one of the leading manufacturers of steel products in China. We specializes in manufacturing all kinds of steel pipe in various grades and sizes. Years of production experience and manufacturing facilities who have a capacity of 200,000 tons per annual will ensure the good quality and competitive duration of our products.

Non Verbal Communication in Presentations

Presentation skills, conversation skills and writing skills are the three keys to effective communication. In this post, I’d like to focus on some tips for using non verbal communication to improve your presentation skills.

Eye contact helps indicates your interest in the people in the audience. It increases your credibility. When you make eye contact with people in the audience, you increase your chances of getting your message across. Eye contact helps you establish a connection with the audience. When you make eye contact with people as you are speaking, you build one to one bonds with them.

Smiles are powerful – I always try to keep a smile on my face when I am speaking. Smiling makes a speaker more warm, likable and friendly. When you smile, people see you as happy — and this makes them more receptive to you. People react positively to smiles. When you smile, the audience smiles. And a smiling audience is a receptive audience. Smiling will help you get your points across and accepted.

Gestures are another important form of non verbal communication. But you have to be careful with gestures. I practice my talks in front of a mirror. As I’m speaking, I watch my natural gestures. Then I enhance them. Usually, I amplify my gestures, because big rooms demand big gestures. However, sometimes, I tone them down — depending on the audience. Regardless, I focus on making my gestures natural and reflective of what I’m saying. I try to avoid choppy, sudden gestures when I’m speaking. Instead, I focus on making my gestures fluid.

Posture and body orientation – I always stand up straight and look directly at the audience. Standing straight and looking directly at the audience indicates confidence. I use posture to make points though. If I am speaking about confidence and want to give an example of an unconfident person, I slump my shoulders and look at the floor. Spend most of your time oriented toward the audience. If you’re using slides, speak to the audience, not the slide. It’s OK to look at a slide — especially if you want to draw the audience’s attention to it, but always turn back to the audience after a few seconds.

Proximity - Unlike many speakers, I like to get away from the platform and walk the room. This means that I get up close and personal with people in the audience. I have a wireless device to advance slides, so I am not tied to my computer. I find that audiences like it. As I walk the room, people feel that I’m more a part of them, having a conversation with them, rather than talking at them. This doesn’t work with very large audiences — which I define as over 100 people. However, even if you are speaking to a large audience and need to remain on the platform, I suggest using a wireless device to advance your slides. You won’t be tied to your computer, and you’ll appear more natural.

Your voice - Be animated — avoid speaking in a monotone. Show excitement for your material with your voice. I always practice my talks out loud — that way I hear my voice and the words I am using. This helps me modify my delivery in ways that will improve my impact with my audience.

If you use these non verbal communication ideas you’ll become someone whose presentations carry an impact — and you’ll be on your way to career and life success.

Unusual Presents: A Top 5

I like unusual presents. They’re so much more fun than usual presents. Opening unusual presents is like tucking into a pie without knowing about its filling, or boarding a place whose destination remains unknown. You might love what you find, you might hate it. But regardless, it’s way more exciting than receiving a voucher or a CD. Plus, unusual gifts show that you’ve put some thought into it, so on that basis take a look at some of our suggestions…

St Andrews Golf Course Hickory Putter

If you’re having difficulties buying for a golf geek, this will solve all your problems. This classic hickory putter was particularly popular during the 1880s and consists of a maple head, hickory shaft and either a leather or suede grip. It’s completely handmade, finished in the St Andrews workshop and includes personalisation of up to 15 characters engraved on the shaft.

Personalised Classics

Unusual gifts, unique gifts, daft gifts – call them what you will, personalised classics will undoubtedly raise a smile, whether you’ve got them starring in Dracula, Treasure Island or Wuthering Heights. All in all, there are 12 masterpieces to pick from, with every one of them allowing you to change the names of six lead characters to those of your choice.

An Acre of Moon

Here’s an opportunity to own a piece of real estate on the moon. It’s absolutely for real, thanks to a loophole in The Outer Space Treaty of 1967 that was discovered by American, Dennis M. Hope. You’ll get an acre of our moon, along with a pack containing the lunar deed, sight map, the lunar constitution and Bill of Rights, and a Declaration of Ownership transcript.

Personalised Retro Sweets

Cola bottles, flying saucers, jelly beans – you name it and chances are you’ll find your retro sweet of choice in the collection of personalised sweet jars available online. There are all sorts of combinations available, with 1.8 and 4.5 litre jars to choose from, both of which feature your chosen name on the label. Or if you want to be really indulgent, you’ll even find a couple of hampers, too.

Personalised Beano Goodies

Unusual gifts don’t get more menacing than something from the personalised Beano range. An ideal match for youngsters and reminiscers alike, you’ll find birthday books, calendars, mugs and posters, all of which can be personalised with the chosen name so that they become ‘The Menace’.
