Capabilities of Spliced & Vulcanized O-Rings

What Are Spliced & Vulcanized O-Rings?

Spliced and vulcanized o-rings are made from extruded cord stock that has been cut and bonded together, as opposed to molded o-rings; those that have been compression or injection molded as one piece. Vulcanized o-rings are an excellent choice for static sealing applications when molded o-rings cannot be used due to large or non-standard dimensions, when only a few pieces are needed, or when you need an o-ring right away and cannot wait the standard lead time for molded production. Vulcanized o-rings can be made from a range of elastomers and in virtually any size.

Texas Water Pump Builder, Gator Pumps, Is Helping Panama’s Rice Farmers

Changing weather patterns and unusually dry conditions are having a serious impact on rice and sugar cane production in Central America and El Niño year is certainly living up to its reputation. The continuing delay in rainfall will undoubtedly reduce the yield and quality of this year’s rice and sugar cane crops in several areas of Central America. When combined with an equally harsh La Niña winter, perhaps the greatest impact will be within the attorneys in the woodlands important bridge countries that connect the North and South American continents.

Panamanians are among the largest rice consumers in the western hemisphere, yet repeatedly low domestic production means that almost 80% of the rice consumed in Panama is imported from outside the country. Farmers rely almost exclusively on the normal annual rainfall to produce their crop, and this year’s lack of water has prompted the Government of Panama to begin incentivizing the adaptation of modern irrigation practices including the use of high volume water pumps to utilize the region’s abundant river water. Such improvements could potentially drive a second crop yield that can easily be supported by the excellent year round growing season and modern irrigation techniques. Sugar cane producers are facing similar challenges and now the current government advocacy has attracted supporters within the underutilized rice and sugar mill industries, who depend on farm production to keep mill output levels high.

GATOR Pump has been helping rice farmers across the United States with these same concerns for almost 40 years and we have high volume water pumps that are still operating continuously since the late 1970’s. We are working closely with farmers in Panama and throughout Central America who seek greater savings, stronger crop yields, multiple harvest opportunities, and increased revenue. As so many farmers in Central America are learning: when performance and reliability matter, nothing outperforms a GATOR Pump!  Read the full story here.



U.S. General: Let’s Make Obama Resign

Recent article from MinuteMenNews…

A retired Army general is calling for the “forced resignations” of President Obama, other administration officials and the leadership of Congress for the direction they’re taking the nation, his list of grievances including the systematic political purge of hundreds of senior military officers in the U.S. military.

Retired Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely told WND he is calling for nationwide rallies and protests to demand the resignations and added that a peaceful “civil uprising is still not out of question.”

In his capacity as chairman of the organization Stand Up America, Vallely issued what he termed a “National Call to Action” to force the resignations of Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

Vallely, formerly the deputy commanding general of Pacific Command, said the current crop of leaders must be forced to resign by the “demand resignation” process, which he explained requires massive grass-roots protests and social networking. As an example, he cited the public and media pressure that led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon.

Impeachment, Vallely said, is not a viable option because of “partisan politics.”

“Our federal government continues down the path of destroying America,” he said. “Americans must now stand up and put America back on the right track.”
