Converting raw materials into more than 70 000 different products that are used in almost all industries, the chemical industry lies at the core of the global economy and, perhaps, modern civilization. There is hardly any industrially produced good that would exist without the chemical industry, all the more considering that it was not until the 19th century that chemistry, particularly organic chemistry, exploded with Wöhler’s urea synthesis. Within just a few decades, numerous important industrial...
Life sciences applications require continual monitoring of incredibly temperature and time-sensitive materials, including blood, vaccines, tissue samples, new medicines and drugs, and more. Our signature Accsense wireless and wired data loggers monitor refrigerators, freezers and cryostats 24/7 to safeguard these invaluable goods and provide advanced alarming and messaging.
Capnography is the monitoring of the concentration or partial pressure of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the respiratory gases. The CO2 concentration during a single breath is measured in a high temporal resolution to monitor the condition of the lungs.
The highest standards of accuracy and reliability are required in laboratories and medical devices. STS products are perfectly suited to this purpose – an example is their use in pressure and measurements of dialysis equipment.
The medical industry requires the accurate and consistent performance of its equipment. IST’s precise and reliable sensors meet the needs of these applications. Flow is perhaps the most widely used sensor in this industry, controlling medical devices where a gas or fluid is being supplied to a patient, or in cases of patient monitoring. Humidity sensors also have an application in the medical industry in products that control the air present or supplied to the patient.
National Laboratories and University Research Laboratories explore and develop cutting edge technology: materials, energy, weapons, nanotechnology, etc. Utilizing radioactive materials in such research is common. Monitoring and detecting effluent nuclides and energies is critical in research development efforts. US Nuclear Corp provides specific and uniquely tailored instrumentation to achieve that goal.
Capillary pressure is a critical parameter for the oil exploration and production industry, and is a common measurement performed in core analysis laboratories. However, traditional techniques such as porous plate, centrifugation and mercury injection are laborious, time consuming and expensive.
Density determination using the buoyancy method. Density determination is used in many areas to characterize certain properties of a product or material. Density determination applications are not only numerous, but also frequently associated with very specific requirements. METTLER TOLEDO offers a range of hardware and software options for determination of density using the gravimetric measuring method.
Measuring equipment must be checked regularly, if the quality of the measurement results has changed during every-day use. The user should perform these checks at fixed time intervals. Balances and Scales are tested with an external weight piece. This test weight must have a valid calibration certificate issued by an accredited calibration lab. The tests should be performed in fixed, regular intervals and the results should be documented in a traceable way.
Forensic labs are improving throughput and eliminating backlog by using DART. Presentation of sample and standards is routine and requires just seconds per sample to determine quantity and quality of seized narcotics and OTC drugs of abuse. Synthetic cannabinoids and bath salts are easily detected and identified with confirmation using simple mass spectrometry methods and comparison with NIST library standards. Explosives, arson, counterfeit currency, tax stamps and even drugs in body fluids present no problem...
The refining and petrochemical employs a wide variety of physical/chemical processes like separation,conversion, treatment, reaction, purification along with a series of auxiliary processes to make them occur or make the byproducts properly treated.
Triglycerides are the main constituents of vegetable oil (typically more unsaturated) and animal fats (typically more saturated). They are formed by combining glycerol with three molecules of fatty acid to form ester bonds. The fatty acid composition of oils is commercially important, for example, high oleic acid content found in olive oils, has been implicated in a reduced risk of heart disease. Linoleic acid found in sunflower oils, is an essential nutritional fatty acid. High levels of these fatty acids can...
