Electric Smart Glass

Large-area glazing is the trend of our time – whether on building facades, the flat roof, conservatory or as glass tiles on the ground:

But the sun bounces in the summer months on ordinary window glass, it is quickly too hot and bright. A modern alternative to roller shutters and blinds offers electrochromic glass, also known as smart or  electric smart glass. The switchable solar control glass can be darkened at the touch of a button, which allows the heat and light transmission of the glazing to be individually regulated – depending on the weather and personal preference.

This intelligent glass does not block the sun, like common sun protection systems, but optimizes them. In winter, for example, solar radiation is used as heating and, in the summer, EC glass uses the properties of a sunshade glass with the help of dimming. Furthermore, you can dimming EC-glass as you wish, to protect yourself from prying eyes without reducing the incidence of light.

EC glass is not only cost-reducing but also environmentally friendly, as less CO² is emitted by reduced heating and air conditioning use and, of course, less energy is consumed.
The intelligent EC glass is slowly establishing itself in the German market, which is why there has been a fall in prices and an expansion of the product range.

How does dimmable glass work?
Now the question arises as to how dimmable glass works at all and whether it is really energy efficient or just pure profiteering.

The Intelligent Window consists of three float glass panes.
The float glass pane facing the interior is equipped with a thermal barrier coating. On the outside there is an electrochromic composite structure of the other two discs, the inside of each of which is equipped with wafer-thin oxide coatings (mostly tungsten oxide), which can absorb and release ions. Between the panes a lithium ion conductive polymer film is placed. At the push of a button, an electrical voltage (<5 volts) is created which activates ion exchange. As a result, the glass unit turns blue and reduces the light and total energy transmission of the glazing.

It is possible to choose different gradations and to tune the intelligent window optimally to the incidence of light. The coloring process takes place silently and lasts from the first to the darkest stage at a 100 * 100 cm large window about 12 minutes.

Further advantages are that the electrochromic laminated glass pane can be combined with numerous additional functions, such as sound or burglary protection.

Intelligent glass – what other variants are there?
Intelligent glass is diverse. Other variants include LC glass or glazings with a resin layer between the panes which react to temperatures. LC (liquid crystal) glass is similar in construction to EC glass. A liquid crystal layer is embedded in conductive films between the laminated glass. By permanent power supply, the crystals are ordered and the discs are transparent. If the circuit is interrupted, the order of the crystals dissolves and the disc is dimmed. A disadvantage to EC glass is that LC glass requires almost all power.

Thermal-responsive glazings have a layer of resin embedded with polymeric micro-chips between the laminated glass. If the resin warms up strongly (eg <40 � C), the layer changes state and scatters incident light. The glass is dimmed. Here is a disadvantage that the glass is not suitable as EC-glass as a screen and no manual control is possible.

Another option for Intelligent Glass is turning windows, which are fixed in a special turning frame and have corresponding energy transmittances for summer and winter, which stop the heat or use it as an energy source. The summer side has an energy transmittance of 0.39, leaving only 40% of the heat inward; The winter side has an energy transmittance of 0.65 and thus uses 65% of solar energy as a heat supplier.

The enumerated intelligent glasses are expensive to buy, but they save heating costs in winter and air conditioning costs in summer in the long term. The advantage of intelligent glass is also in listed buildings, if external sun protection devices are prohibited, for example. Our friends at MH Dimmable Tint are well known for thier top craftsmanship when it comes to installing electrochromic windows.

How Landman Services Work

In most countries, the government retains the rights to ownership of oil, gas, minerals and other property that may be found below the land’s surface regardless of who holds the rights to the land’s surface. Land rights in the United States differ in that whoever holds the rights to the land surface also holds ownership rights to property found below the land’s surface. These can be private individuals, local or state governments, corporations, local tribes or even federal government agencies. However, as the owners may lack the means to exploit the underlying resources, it is a common practice in the United States for the owners to lease or sell these rights to third parties. Such a move separates the ownership rights to the land surface from the rights to the underlying minerals. Since a mineral deposit, typically oil and gas, may extend over several land properties held by different owners, mineral companies may require to gather ownership rights before drilling commences. This is often accomplished by employing the services of a landman.

After the oil and gas company has confirmed drilling prospects in a given geological area, they begin research on the mineral ownership through the landman. A landman provides various services ranging from negotiating for mineral rights acquisition, negotiating business agreements on mining, title status review, determining mineral rights ownership and minimizing risk associated with mineral ownership. A landman can specialize in an array of these services or specialize in only one of these services. To determine mineral ownership rights, the landman researches records in the county courthouse where the land is located. In this way, the landman can ascertain the ownership of the land or if any previous contracts on minerals exist on the land. Moreover, landmen check on reservations provided in land that has been sold over time to determine if any exceptions pertaining to mineral ownership give the rights to the minerals to the previous owners. As land conveyance can be frequent, the research conducted by the landman can be quite complex. The landmen may also be contracted to make contact with the holders of the mineral rights and to initiate purchase or lease negotiations. The landman then files the lease agreed upon by the mineral owner and the oil and gas company at the courthouse for future references from subsequent researchers.

There are several companies that offer landman services around the United States. However, MAJR Resources provides the best landman services around the country. The company boasts of a team of experts and wide network of landmen with vast experience. Therefore, by obtaining the services of MAJR services, you are assured of receiving the best landman services available in the market. Each of the landmen working with MAJR Resources is thoroughly vetted to test their expertise and experience. Moreover, the company collaborates with local and state governments to ensure that no obstructions to the drilling operations are overlooked that may later haunt the drilling operation. Although the company provides services primarily in Texas, it also provides services across other states such as Oklahoma, New Mexico, Pennysylvania and North Dakota. The company’s experts are willing to provide landman services in any state that they may be needed around the country.
