  • A Thermally Controlled Test Chamber for Centrifuge and Laboratory Experiments

    This note describes a novel approach for the provision of a thermally controlled testing chamber. The main principal of the system is to use a layer of cooled air as an active insulation medium to convect away heat transferred through conventional passive insulation. Results from laboratory floor and centrifuge tests are reported. Observed and predicted performance capabilities of the chamber are ...

  • Laboratory test system to measure microbial respiration rate

    This study reports a sensible, accurate and economic method for continuous measuring microbial respiration. The measuring principle is an open system, with a continuous air-flow through. Evolved CO2 is absorbed and precipitated as carbonate by a Ba(OH)2 solution, causing a stoichiometrical decrease in ionic strength of the solution and in electrical conductivity. ...
