  • What can I use to filter my mobile phase?

    If you are using mobile phase that contains salts or, generally, any components that are weighed out for its preparation, you will need to filter the solution before using with HPLC or UHPLC. The most common type of filtration is membrane microfiltration. We sell an extensive group of products for this and they are discussed very well in a blog ...

  • Validation of a fully autonomous phosphate analyser based on a microfluidic lab-on-a-chip

    This work describes the design of a phosphate analyser that utilises a microfluidic lab-on-a-chip. The analyser contains all the required chemical storage, pumping and electronic components to carry out a complete phosphate assay. The system is self-calibrating and self-cleaning, thus capable of long-term operation. This was proven by a bench top calibration of the analyser using standard ...

  • Industrial Pump Inspection

    An industrial pump service and remanufacturing company had two goals in mind when they went shopping for a borescope. First, the scope had to be easy to use and portable enough to take on service calls. Second, it had to have four-way camera articulation in order to steer navigate the pipes and small through-holes that are commonly found in industrial pump applications. They found exactly what ...

  • Peristaltic pumps for moving filtration water

    The Eversburg sewage treatment plant is designed to serve 250,000 population equivalents and is one of three plants operated by the city of Osnabrück in northern Germany. But in 2005, its actual load was closer to 309,000 population equivalents (COD 80 mg/l), pushing the nitrogen input level above the plant's capabilities. To deal with this situation, engineer Peter Sikora organized a team ...

  • Higher pumping efficiencies for medium-duty applications

    Climbing power prices, particularly for new mine sites in remote locations, have sparked an increasing global demand for power savings solutions in the mineral processing industry. Over the years, plants have been using heavy-duty slurry pumps in applications where they are more powerful than needed. Because no plant should pay out increased energy costs for under-used pumps in medium-duty ...

  • What is the difference between Rotary Vane and Diaphragm vacuum pumps?

    Most laboratories will have a vacuum pump. They are widely used across labs of all disciplines for a range of tasks from basic filtrations or evacuating a desiccator right up to use with large equipment such as vacuum ovens or rotary evaporators. The two most common types are rotary vane or diaphragm pumps – but ...

  • How can I finely control the vacuum applied by my vacuum pump or system?

    Some vacuum pumps or built in vacuum systems do not allow fine control over the vacuum applied. For rough work like vacuum filtration this is not always needed, but for more sensitive work, for example when using a rotary evaporator, application of the correct vacuum level is essential to smooth operation. The new ...

  • Vaccu.Lan for Green

    You're building a 'green' science building, and some of your laboratories require vacuum support. How do you provide vacuum for those labs? You can't use an oil-sealed rotary vane vacuum pumps in the labs. The oil mist would contaminate the laboratory air, and the noise pollution makes the working environment unpleasant. The pump oil would quickly be contaminated by biological and chemical ...

  • Biobarriers for groundwater treatment: a review

    Biobarriers (BBs) are a new type of in situ technology for the remediation of contaminated groundwater. In recent years, this remediation technique has been more and more used in place of traditional Pump & Treat systems or other in situ technologies both in the USA and Europe. This work reviews the main experiences of BBs. The literature contains reports about tests ...

  • Optimising the Rehabilitation of polluted Mine Tailings and Water by SupaZorb

    To date the polluted acid mine drainage (AMD) – the second biggest environmental problem of the world - from South Africa’s gold mines, was characterised and treated by the precipitation of heavy metals with lime and sulphates, by means of iron exchange. The chemical treatment with expensive and toxic caustic soda (Sodium Hydroxide, NaOH) is to lift the pH, in order to reduce the corrosion on ...
