  • A quick guide to oil analysis for engine test applications

    Reliability testing is a very important component of new engine development. Engineers need to fully understand and chart the engine lifetime performance under a variety of conditions before mass production may be considered. Many important performance data parameters are collected in real time through the many different types of sensors that are connected to the engine in the test cell and oil ...

  • Struvite Formation, Prediction and Locations.

    Struvite formation occurs when magnesium, ammonium and phosphate hexahydrate whose elemental composition of magnesium ammonia and phosphate forms in water combine in the exact chemical formulation as expressed by equation Mg2+ + NH4+ + HPO42- + 2H2O MgNH4PO4•6H2O + H+. This is the chemical term and formulation for struvite. This article goes over how Struvite is formed, the parameters for ...

  • LIMS Locates the Diamond in the Rough

    From the earliest days of digging into the earth for minerals, one question has been raised by all those seeking to make use of the materials the earth offers up:  what exactly have we dug up and is it what we hoped it would be?  Well we’re not panning for gold anymore and hoping for a glint of something shiny at the bottom of our pans, unless we hobbyists.  Modern ...

  • The role of regional location in innovativeness

    The relationship between innovation and regional location is the object of much debate in management studies. This paper analyses the role of the regional location environment in firms’ innovative behaviour using data of 8,193 Spanish firms from different regions in Spain. Our results show that regional-specific factors (autonomous regions, spending on innovation, number of patents applied for ...

  • Innovation and location in the multinational firm

    This paper provides an overview of the relationship between multinational corporations (MNCs) and local economic systems. It examines the implications of a decentralisation of innovative activity within MNCs for their interaction with local networks. It is shown that this interaction depends upon the type of cluster, whether a general centre of excellence or a specialised centre. These two ...

  • Typical Sensor Location Considerations

    The sensor mounting location within a space may be dependent on many variables. There are no specific formulas since each application will have it’s own determining factors and priorities. These include, but are not limited to: source of gas: Is the source a combustion exhaust from a vehicle or furnace or a vapour from a tank spill, pipe leak, or faulty valve? density of ...
