No matter how sophisticated a fluid analyzer system may be, it will be ineffective if a sample flow fails to reach the analyzer sensor or if the sample is contaminated or stale.
Fiber optic spectrometers are ideal in UV/VIS absorbance measurements due to their small size, their ability to be introduced in harsh environments via their fiber interface, and their low cost. UV/VIS absorbance measurements involve a myriad of chemical and biochemical applications with several potential research and industrial end uses. This application note discussed UV/VIS absorbance measurements, common system configurations used in these measurements, the advantages of fiber optics, instrument control software, and more.
In developing a comprehensive and effective cleaning program, pharmaceutical plants should understand the importance of choosing the correct vacuum for their application – this machinery represents a critical component in helping to minimize or avoid certain risks. A superior vacuum not only maximizes production efficiencies by enhancing the performance and lifespan of critical manufacturing equipment and safeguarding product quality, it also protects the safety and health of employees.
In these days of volatile oil prices, the search for new sources of energy is leading industry to Alberta, Canada, and its vast oil sands. Typically, the mining of oil sands is a more costly process than traditional oil drilling. However, the rise in crude prices has made the Alberta oilfields a viable source.
The SVM 3000 works according to a new, patented measuring principle. Just fill the measuring cell with 3 ml of sample and obtain both dynamic and kinematic viscosity and density values. The viscosity index calculation is also integrated.
Our newly redesigned TurboGrate Magnetic Separator removes ferrous metals from powder and granular materials with even the most difficult flow characteristics. This magnetic separator features a powerful motorized rotating grate magnet, which processes material, such as cocoa, flour, or starch, that would bridge traditional grate assemblies.
Designed specifically for extruder manufacturers and compounders, the ProFlex C plastic industry feeder line packs maximum versatility into a very space- and cost-efficient package that's easy to operate, reconfigure, clean, and service.
The OCX 8800, with its rugged design, stable sensor, electronics, and software package, is the most dependable oxygen/combustibles transmitter on the market. The time-tested and world-renowned zirconium oxide sensor is the basis for the oxygen measurement.
