Webcasts

Narrated presentations or webcasts are an easy, convenient way to learn about the properties and applications of copper. Where indicated, webcasts can be downloaded and played from your local drive or network. Look out for 'notes', 'resources' and 'attachments' on slides and at the end of the webcasts as these provide further information.

Antimicrobial

Risk Mitigation of Hospital Acquired Infections Through the Use of Antimicrobial Copper Surfaces - Dr Michael Schmidt, MUSC, USA

Early results from a comprehensive, multi-site clinical trial in the US demonstrate that the use of antimicrobial copper surfaces in intensive care unit rooms resulted in a 40.4% reduction in the risk of acquiring a hospital infection.  Initial study results were presented at the World Health Organization's 1st International Conference on Prevention and Infection Control (ICPIC) in Geneva, Switzerland on 1st July 2011 by Dr M G Schmidt, Copper Touch Surface Initiative Microbiology and Immunology, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, USA.

Power Quality in Low Voltage Installations - Voltage Dips - David Chapman, Copper Development Association

Voltage dips are the most common power quality problem and are also the most obvious since their result is usually instantaneous. For many industries a dip can be as financially damaging as a complete power failure. This presentation looks at the causes and effects, examining typical network performance, equipment performance and the compatibility gap between them. This gap must be covered in practice by good installation design and the right choice of mitigation equipment.

Domestic Fire Sprinkler Systems

In recent years residential sprinkler systems have been seen as one way to safeguard the vulnerable members of society from fire. Copper has a well established reputation as a pipework material being easily jointed, light in weight, capable of withstanding high temperature, delivering required flow rates, durable and reliable. This presentation shows why and where sprinklers are being specified, why copper is the material of choice and how to design and install systems.
