|NAIROBI， Dec. 9 (Xinhua) -- The Kenyan government on Friday deployed the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) doctors to attend to emergency cases at the country's largest referral hospital in Nairobi amid crisis in the health sector due to the ongoing strike.
KDF spokesman Lt. Col. Paul Njuguna said the military doctors will offer services at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) after 290 specialists joined the ongoing medics' strike which entered its fifth day.
He said the deployment of doctors is part of KDF duties of alleviating sufferings， adding that the military has already sent enough personnel at KNH. Njuguna said the doctors would remain at the hospital until the strike is over.
"Our doctors have gone to KNH to assist the patients suffering from the strike by doctors. They will remain until the ongoing strike is over. That is part of our mandate and we have stepped in to help the needy cases there. We have specialists to attend to them，" Njuguna said.
The deployment came hours after President Uhuru Kenyatta urged doctors to return to work and not to make innocent patients suffer.
Kenyatta said the government was keen on ensuring that issues that staged the strike are resolved and a permanent solution found.
The deployment of doctors was prompted by the move by 200 consultants attached to the largest referral hospital joined their striking colleagues to push for the implementation of the 2013 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) that awarded them a 300 percent pay increment and agreed to employ more doctors and nurses to reduce their workload and doctor to patient ratio from the current 1:16，000.
The strike by the health workers has dealt a major blow to thousands of patients since the country's largest population depends on public health facilities.
Gory pictures of agony， misery and pain are all written on the faces of the patients who are in most cases turned away or left unattended.
Meanwhile， the health ministry said the government has offered to increase pay perk for striking doctors of the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Union effective January 1， 2017.
However， the proposal which was fronted by the National and County governments on Wednesday after extensive meetings has been rejected by the doctors.
The two arms of the government have also committed not to victimizing or taking disciplinary action against members of the union for participating in the ongoing industrial action.
The ministry said efforts to permanently， amicably and sustainably resolve the underlying issues are ongoing.
Pneumatic conveying is the transport of material from one location to another using air as the conveying medium with which the material is moved. Energy is needed to transport the material from one place to another. This energy can be supplied by a mechanical method (such as conveyor belts Cheap Tampa Bay Rays Jersey , buckets, etc), fan Cheap Texas Rangers Jersey , blower, or a compressor. This newsletter will focus on the use of a fan to convey material.
There are several methods of transporting materials using pneumatic conveying. In general, they seem to fall into three main categories: air conveying Cheap Toronto Blue Jays Jersey , dense phase, and dilute phase. Air conveying is the use of air to create a thin film of air between the material and the surface it is being conveyed on. Air film or air cushion is the use of air injected from below a porous surface such that the conveyed material "floats" along the system. This is somewhat like an air hockey table. Air can be directional causing the material to be transported along a desired path. The advantage to a system such as this is that it requires very little force to move the conveying material and it can be moved or rotated in any direction easily.
Another type of air conveying uses air nozzles with ball valves such that the air only flows through the valves when the conveying material makes contact with the valve depressing the ball. This, of course Cheap Washington Nationals Jersey , reduces the operating costs of the system. However, the first cost of such a system would be higher.
Dense phase conveying is the transport of a slug of material by using high pressure (15 psig and nore) to essentially push the material along the desired path. Compressors or pressure blowers are typically used in this type of conveying system. It is similar to extruding and material is conveyed at relatively low velocities.
Dilute phase conveying uses a relatively large amount of air to convey a relatively small amount of material and at lower pressures than dense phase systems. The material is transported at high velocities through the system while being suspended in air. Dilute phase systems are the most commonly used method of transporting materials. Dilute phase will be the focus for the remainder of this article.
Positive pressure systems are normally used for transporting material from one entry point to one or more exit points. The orientation of components in this type of system is fan, feeder Wholesale MLB Baseball Jerseys , and then separator. Cement, fly ash, and dry chemicals are examples of products that have been conveyed using this method. There are several different methods to introduce the material into the air stream for positive pressure systems. Screw feeders compress the material and force it into the air stream. Rotary valves drop material into the air- stream a little at a time. Using the positive pressure layout Wholesale Baseball Jerseys , one has to be careful of high velocity impact of introducing material into the air stream. Depending on the material being handled, this could be damaging to the material. Also, if dust is a potential problem with the material Wholesale Majestic MLB Jerseys , leaks must be eliminated. Since it is pressurized, leaks will be out of the system, so dust can escape through any leak. In this type of system Wholesale MLB Jerseys , the material does not go through the fan. There are two advantages to this. First, the fan wheel does not dama. Von Miller Jersey Tom Brady Womens Jersey Todd Gurley II Womens Jersey T. J.
