Effectively Contain Spillage AutomaticallyResponsible businesses do all they can to create a safe work environment and reduce the possibility for hazardous or harmful situations. However, accidents can and do happen, even with the strictest procedures and policies and the most stringent protective measures in place.Suppose the worst should occur and your facility suffers a serious hazard like a massive chemical spill or a fire. Further suppose that the sprinkler system deploys, flooding the building and perhaps even spreading fire and/or chemicals throughout the building.
Not only will your facility be damaged, but you could be facing danger to employees or even the public. What if the power is out or the building is empty and response measures cannot be employed to stop the spread of spilled chemicals or fire?It is for just such situations that automatic doorway spill barriers exist.
These water-tight, chemical resistant barriers will keep water, chemicals, and fire contained to a small area (ideally where you use or store flammable or combustible materials).They allow for easy passage of personnel and machinery (used to transport chemical containers, for example) when the barrier is open, but when liquids spill into the sump and begin to fill it, they displace the barrier, causing it to rise into a closed position, stopping the flow of liquid.Best of all, they require no electricity, sensors, or manual operation to work, so they cannot fail. Plus, theyre designed to contain even the output of a sprinkler system. There are many benefits to be gained when you install automatic doorway spill barriers in your facility.Effectively Contain Spillage The greatest advantage, of course, is containing spillage.
If you work with hazardous or combustible chemicals, chances are you have primary storage and safety measures in place to prevent or account for a spill, including appropriate storage containers, lockers, platforms, and so on.What if a container should burst or tip over, spilling the contents across the floor? If the liquid reaches your automatic barrier, it will rise as required to prevent liquids from passing beyond the barrier.If materials should combust, setting off the emergency sprinkler system, the water released will be contained, along with any chemicals and even floating fires. Containment is the number one benefit of automatic doorway spill barriers.Reduce Scope and Cost of Cleanup The more youre able to contain spills of any type, the less youre going to spend on cleanup efforts after the fact.
In addition, automatic doorway spill barriers are less costly to install than other options such as drains and sumps, or alternately, trenches and containment ponds. When used properly, automatic doorway spill barriers are perhaps the most cost-effective means of preventing damage outside of a containment area, reducing the scope and price tag for damage should a spill or sprinkler release occur.Protect Employees and Facilities In addition to preventing damage to all but a small area of your facility when chemical spills or fires resulting in sprinkler release occur, spill barriers also protect the health and safety of your employees. Even a small amount of chemicals mixed in with the water released from sprinklers can constitute a health hazard.
A barrier effectively stops these harmful liquids from reaching workers.The same is true of floating fires. Some combustible materials may not be extinguished, even when sprinklers flood the area. These chemicals could continue to burn, floating on the water released by sprinklers, and flood into other areas of your facility if not contained, potentially harming employees along the way.
Automatic doorway spill barriers prevent this from occurring.Prevent Environmental Hazards Depending on your facility, its possible that a major spill or leak could result in chemicals escaping the building and posing a risk to the public or causing an environmental hazard. Again, having an automatic doorway spill barrier for containment can eliminate this potential for harm. Meet Safety Standards Any company that handles or stores hazardous, flammable, and/or combustible materials must comply with safety laws related to such materials.
Rules and regulations may not specifically call for the use of automatic doorway spill barriers, but this safety equipment can help businesses to meet standards and keep their facilities, employees, and the environment safe should the worst-case scenario of a major chemical spill or fire occur.Posted in Spill Barrier ByDENIOS, Inc.

Darien Lake Fun CountryIn 1954, Darien Lake was excavated and filled. The lake was a popular swimming destination for many years. In 1964, investor Paul Snyder acquired a 164-acre parcel of land bordering the lake and opened a small 23-site campground and picnic area. Snyder continued acquiring more land eventually increasing his holdings to almost 1,000 acres of land which included seven lakes, the largest of which was Darien Lake. He stocked one of the smaller lakes, Trout Pond, with fish, increased the number of campsites and added activities for resort guests such as a small petting zoo, horseback and pony rides, paddleboats, skateboarding, tennis courts and miniature golf.
From the late 70s and into the early 80s, Snyder added more attractions, including a set of water slides on a hill near the park's entrance called Rainbow Mountain, creating an amusement park he named Darien Lake Fun Country. Snyder made a deal with HUSS Park Attractions, turning Darien Lake into the North American showcase for the German manufacturer's new rides. Through this deal, the park acquired rides such as the Pirate, Ranger, Thrillbilly and the Corn Popper, for use in the park and to give HUSS a location to display them to potential US and Canadian buyers. In 1982, the newly merged Arrow Huss built and opened the park's first major roller coaster, Viper.
Funtime ParksIn 1983, Snyder sold a fifty-percent stake in the park to Funtime Inc., which also owned Geauga Lake and Wyandot Lake Park. The Fun Country was dropped from the name, and Funtime brought in some major improvements.
Funtime's first purchase was the Vekoma-built Giant Wheel Ferris wheel, the showcase of the 1982 World's Fair in Knoxville, Tennessee and the largest in the United States at the time, which was permanently installed in the park's center. Although no longer the largest in the country, the Giant Wheel is still in operation today.
Entertainment was also added to the park, with the construction of the Tops Jubilee Theater (now the Grande Theatre), the Lakeside Amphitheater, a large-scale concert stage on the south side of the main lake, presenting big-name acts including The Who, Alice Cooper, and Black Sabbath, and Cinema 2000, a wide-angle movie theatre in the back of the park. In the mid-to late 1980s, there was Splashmania, a water skiing show located on Fun Lake.
The improvements continued throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, with the addition of a themed kids area, Adventure Land for Kids in 1988 and in 1989 Grizzly Run replaced a kids ride area that was located where a skatepark was. In 1990, six new slides were added to the back of the water slide complex and the area became known as Barracuda Bay and an extra charge was added to the waterpark as well a new locker area, food complex, shopping area and changing rooms. Following the success of a new wooden rollercoaster at Geauga Lake in 1988, Funtime contracted Dinn & Summers to build a new wooden coaster for Darien. The Predator roller coaster opened in May 1990. Around this time, Paul Snyder, sold his remaining share of the park to Funtime, turning over all control to them.
In 1992, a new style of entertainment debuted on the midway between Barracuda Bay and the Giant Wheel, a laser light show called Laser Light Fantasy (now called Ignite the Night), which included laser graphics and fireworks. The show was permanently installed in the Lakeside Amphitheater the following year, while concert events were moved to the new Darien Lake Performing Arts Center, which could hold nearly four times as many guests. In 1994, the old Rainbow Mountain waterslides were replaced with a new set called 'Cuda Falls and waterpark became included with park admission.
Premier Parks/Six FlagsIn 1995, growing regional park chain Premier Parks bought Funtime and its three parks. Premier dove right into changes and additions. In 1995, Skycoaster opened located over Fun Lake. In 1996, Adventure Land was replaced by Popeye's Seaport with all new kiddie rides like a Ferris wheel made to look like barrels, a hand-cranked train ride, a submarine ride, a ship themed play place (removed in 2004), and a food stand and restrooms in the then new kiddie area in an area that was occupied by miniature golf course. A new miniature golf course opened behind the then-new kiddie area near Viper which replaced the old golf course. Also a waterpark expansion with new attractions took place in 1996 and 1997 with Hook's Lagoon (opened in 1996) the Crocodile Isle wave pool (opened in 1997) took over Adventure Land's old location by Elk Lake with new changing rooms and a food stand were built, and a bridge was built to connect the Barracuda Bay slides with the then new water park area and a boat tag game was added to the midway. Three of the old Adventure Land rides were moved to another part of the park as the Tiny Trio in 1997.
From 1996 to 1999, Premier would also install a new roller coaster each year, Nightmare at Phantom Cave in 1996, Mind Eraser in 1997, Boomerang: Coast to Coaster in 1998 and Superman Ride of Steel (the world's first Intamin hypercoaster) in 1999. Nightmare was removed in 1998 and relocated to sister park The Great Escape.
In 1998, Premier purchased Six Flags Theme Parks and began to rebrand its own parks as Six Flags. In May 1999, Six Flags Darien Lake opened under its new name, with a few major changes. Premier brought Six Flags' own character base, Looney Tunes and DC Comics, into the parks, renaming Popeye's Seaport to Looney Tunes Seaport, added a show in the vacant former Nightmare at Phantom Cave building called the Batman Thrill Spectacular, and Hydro Force, Pipeline Plunge, Riptide Run, and Torpedo Rapids were removed from Barracuda Bay and Scrambler replaced Cinema 2000. The midway stage was added to replace the boat tag game and The Emporium gift shop opened in Lasso's old location, Crazy Quilt was removed and replaced with Lasso.
Premier Parks formed in 2000, assuming the name "Six Flags Inc.", and adding new attractions. The next major attractions installed the Twister in 2000 and Shipwreck Falls in 2002, replacing the old Cascade Canyon water slides on the east side of Barracuda Bay as well as Slingshot behind the 'Cuda Falls water slides; and the Tornado in 2005.
Troubled times2006 was a year of turmoil for Six Flags and its parks. For the 2006 season, Six Flags moved the Big Kahuna, a family-sized waterslide, from Six Flags AstroWorld to Darien Lake and also moved the Batman The Escape roller coaster from Astroworld into storage at Darien Lake, with possible plans to build it. They also added an opportunity to meet with the entire Justice League at the park.
Only a month into Darien Lake's season, however, Six Flags began pulling back the Justice League from Darien Lake and announced Darien Lake, along with eight other parks, was being considered for sale. Many parks throughout the chain, not just those for sale, also experienced numerous changes and cutbacks throughout the summer.
In October 2006, after shortened operating hours and seasons, Six Flags officially announced the parks were being offered for sale as a package. Paul Snyder stated in a radio interview he would have considered purchasing Darien Lake from Six Flags if they allowed the parks to be sold individually.
In January 2007, Six Flags announced a potential sale of seven of the parks to a new company, PARC 7F (officially called PARC Management). Six Flags chose to retain two parks it had originally considered for sale.
PARC Management (2007–2010)In April 2007, Six Flags completed the sale of Darien Lake and six other parks to PARC Management. Upon completion of the sale, PARC entered into a fifty-year contract with CNL Income Properties, under which CNL purchased the properties from and lease them back to PARC for operation.
Because of the timing of the final sale with respect to the park's opening, PARC was unable to make any major changes for the 2007 season. The biggest changes for the season were the addition of an all-new show, Le Grande Cirque, which replaced the Batman Thrill Spectacular, and the removal of all Six Flags-, Looney Tunes-, and DC Comics-themed signage and references.
The park debuted the Orange County Choppers MotoCoaster, its first launched rollercoaster, in 2008. A Zamperla Motocoaster coaster, it was the prototype that had been running outside Zamperla's factory in Italy. PARC pledged to lower admission prices that had risen under Six Flags ownership. Floodgate Falls was closed.
In March 2010, Darien Lake expanded its current waterpark to Splashtown at Darien Lake (featuring several new attractions and a repaint of the 'Cuda Falls waterslide complex in Barracuda Bay), a new 16-foot-wide (4.9 m) lazy river called Flotation Station, Swirl City slide complex (with four new slides) and a kiddie wave pool called Lazy Days Lagoon.:127 2010 also brought about some minor park changes such as Viper being repainted with a black track, The Predator getting new trains and the addition of the Critter Chase in Adventure Isle replacing Raft Adventure.
CNL subsequently announced that it had reached an agreement to terminate PARC's lease of Darien Lake and up to seventeen other locations. The move was made after, according to their 2010 SEC filings, PARC defaulted on their lease obligations.
Herschend Family Entertainment (2011–2014)In 2011 Herschend Family Entertainment assumed day-to-day operation and management of Darien Lake and Elitch Gardens.
Rowdy's Ridge opened in 2012 with several family rides.
For the 2013 season, Blast Off was placed in the newly rethemed Waterfront Boardwalk area, which included major renovations to rides like the Grand Carousel and the Giant Wheel, along with some new dining options. Laserblast received new improvements and was rebranded Ignite the Night. UFO and the 'Cuda Falls waterslides were closed and removed. The Scrambler ride returned after two years in storage.
Premier Parks, LLC (2014–2018)Herschend Family Entertainment's lease ended after the 2014 season and was taken over by Premier Parks, LLC.
New rides installed during this period include Rolling Thunder, a 72-foot Larson 22M Giant Loop; Brain Drain, a set of two body slides that drops riders through a trapdoor at high speeds; and Ripcurl Racer, a six-lane Proslide Kracken Racer.
EPR Properties and Six Flags (2017–present)Following the 2016 season, CNL Lifestyle sold Darien Lake and fourteen other amusement parks to EPR Properties. The park continued to be leased and operated by Premier Parks, with no immediate change in operations or staffing.
Tantrum, a Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter coaster, opened for the 2018 season.
Starting with the 2018 season, Six Flags Entertainment Corporation acquired lease rights to operate the park, with the park remaining under the ownership of EPR Properties.
Six Flags SkyScreamer, a Funtime Star Flyer, opened for the 2019 season. During this season, the park reverted to the Six Flags Darien Lake branding.
For the 2020 season, it was announced that Wahoo Wave, a ProSlide waterslide, would be added to the newly re-named, and re-themed, Hurricane Harbor WaterPark.
Inertia. Those kinds of doors are typically very heavy, thick tempered glass so they can't be easily broken. It takes a lot of energy to start one moving. The sensor can't sense you when you're a long way from the door and start opening early, because it would detect random passers-by and open unnecessarily.
That would waste electricity and let the heat out. It could be done with more powerful motors, but it's probably not worth the expense.Why don't automatic doors ever open quickly enough so that I can walk through without breaking my stride?.
Small C frame shaded pole squirrel cage motor.The shaded-pole motor is the original type of Ac Single Phase induction motor. A shaded-pole motor is a small squirrel cage motor in which the auxiliary winding is composed of a copper ring or bar surrounding a portion of each pole.
This auxiliary single-turn winding is called a shading coil. Currents induced in this coil by the magnetic field create a second electrical phase by delaying the phase of magnetic flux change for that pole (a shaded pole) enough to provide a 2-phase rotating magnetic field. The direction of rotation is from the unshaded side to the shaded (ring) side of the pole.
Since the phase angle between the shaded and unshaded sections is small, shaded-pole motors produce only a small starting torque relative to torque at full speed.The common, asymmetrical form of these motors has only one winding, with no capacitor or starting windings/starting switch, Making them economical and reliable. Larger and more modern types may have multiple physical windings, though electrically only one, and a capacitor may be used.
Because their starting torque is low, they are best suited to driving fans or other loads that are easily started. They may have multiple taps near one electrical end of the winding, which provides variable speed and power by selection of one tap at a time, as in ceiling fans. Moreover, they are compatible with TRIAC-based variable-speed controls, which often are used with fans.
They are built in power sizes up to about 1u20444 horsepower (190 W) output. Above 1u20443 horsepower (250 W), they are not common, and for larger motors, other designs offer better characteristics.What is the function of a single phase-shaded pole motor?.
Metro trains do have automatic doors since these are exclusively for suburban passengers of short-distance travel. Hence it necessitates having automatic doors since mainly plying on underground and elevated areas, taking in to affect the safety of passengers onboard.In normal trains, these may not work out, because of distance, nature of trains like exp or mail, loading, and unloading of luggage of passengers have to be taken into consideration.
Even at times, there are hundreds of passengers who enter the train and the existence of automatic door is likely to cause hindrance to passengers by the way of accidents etcu2026Why is Indian Railways not planning to have automatic doors in trains similar to metro, as this will help in preventing crimes and illegal travelling?
It is called an airlock, just like on a submarine or a spaceship. They generally have a separate small heater or AC duct. The idea is that untempered air from the outdoors is trapped in this small "room", then heated or cooled before it gets into the main building space.
Obviously in a busy building that has constant coming and going where both doors are open at the same time, this doesn't work so well. But in general it is a very practical method of minimizing the amount of unconditioned air that enters a building.What is the tiny room between two rows of automatic doors at store entrances called?.
