    Identification of rubber

    INTRODUCTION

    Rubber is a material that is widely used in all kinds of human activity. Rubber properties are modified by addition of chemical substances and ingredients causing physical and chemical modifications. The ingredients modify rubber hardness, durability and impact st rength; increase its resistance to wearing, oils, oxygen, solvents, heat, and cracking, which makes rubber more suitable for the use in various application areas.

    Identification of drugs and medicines

    INTRODUCTION

    At present, pharmacology, being an integral part of medical science, shows rapid development resulting in the discovery of ever growing number of new drugs and medicines. Hence, quality control and identification of drugs acquires vital importance as the number of counterfeited products inconsistent with Pharmacopoeia concurrently increases with the introduction of new numerous drugs. Identification of the drugs is necessary to reject the products that not only lack the required medicinal properties but might be hazardous to human health.

    SF6 Leak Detection

    Monitoring Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) in the Power Utility Industry. Monitoring Sulfur Hexafluoride in the Power Utility Industry The SF6 Leak Detector 3434i from LumaSense offers an unmatched combination of performance and convenience. Based on the company’s Photoacoustic Spectroscopy (PAS) technology, the system offers highly accurate, reliable and stable quantitative gas analysis and detection. The growing environmental requirements and pressures regarding the use of SF6 make LumaSense’s system a coveted tool designed for everyday use. The system is able to measure the total concentration of the SF6 gas in an enclosed area, where the switchgear (or other SF6 filled equipment) is tested. Although only the total amount leaked is required by today’s standards, it is also advantageous to be able to pin point the leaks. This makes it easier to improve the integrity of the equipment. The SF6 Leak Detector system meets all of requirements for confined area such as substation Monitoring.

    DETERMINATION OF FATTY ACID METHYL ESTER (FAME) CONTENT IN DIESEL FUEL OR DOMESTIC HEATING FUEL BY MID-IR SPECTROSCOPY

    Presence of fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) in diesel fuel or domestic heating fuel (both hereinafter referred to as diesel fuel) is a signal of blending with biodiesel. The control of FAME content in diesel fuel is an essential and actual task because of the need of the right fuel identification and registration of possible FAME impact on engines and fuel systems. To control the compliance one of the most accurate, rapid and simple methods is EN 14078:2014. Lumex Instruments provides user-friendly analytical solution for EN 14078:2014 implementation using FTIR spectrometer InfraLUM FT-08 and powerful SpectraLUM software package. The method is based on measuring the transmission spectra of a sample of diesel fuel in the mid-IR spectral range. Consequent calculation of the FAME concentration is performed by InfraLUM software automatically by comparison of peak height against a calibration curve.

    Determination of benzene in gasoline

    Introduction

    Benzene is formed in gasoline in the process of oil refining and gasoline production. Determination of benzene in gasoline is an important task, because ben zene and its products reacting with the products of incomplete combustion of gasoline are highly toxic. Moreover, the presence of benzene increases fouling that eventually may damage the engine . Therefore, regulations impose lim it on the content of benzene in gasoline in many countries, and international standards exist to come up to this requirement.

    Laboratory instruments solutions for polymer and plastics industry

    Synthetic polymers and plastics are a mainstay of modern life. Because of their versatility and physical properties, plastics and polymers have conquered nearly every aspect of human activity: airplanes and cars, packaging of all kinds, medical devices and products, electronics, and countless more – without high-quality and high-tech plastics most products we use today in everyday life would look very different. Polymer production is a demanding process in which high-purity raw materials undergo complex reactions and are turned into polymers, resins, rubbers, and gums. To make sure that the products meet the specifications, the materials and processes have to be monitored along the entire production chain. This makes the use of specific and highly accurate analytical techniques indispensable. We at Metrohm are committed to providing the instrumentation and know-how you need to solve your analytical challenges in polymer analysis.

    Analytical instruments for atomic spectroscopy

    Besides Mass Spectrometry, a further variety of analysis techniques are categorized as atomic spectroscopy. Analysis techniques which use inductively coupled plasma (ICP), such as ICP-OES and ICP-MS, are among these. With increasing environmental awareness backed by regulations, an increasingly important use of atomic spectroscopy techniques is in mercury analysis. Achieving a high mass flow control performance, e.g. high repeatability or an excellent turn-down ratio, is a prerequisite to achieve a high analyzer performance. For this, a number of Axetris customers rely on our products while designing such systems.

    Analytical instruments for gas chromatography

    Gas Chromatography requires a stable repeatable flow of the carrier gas with negligible temperature drift. The Axetris MFC provides excellent control of the gas flow resulting in sharp peaks and high resolution of the chromatograms. Multiple calibrations allow the control of Helium, Hydrogen or Nitrogen. Due to the high turn down ratio of 1000:1 and more, a broad range of flows can be controlled.

    Machine condition monitoring for aviation, aerospace & airlines

    Overview

    Oil analysis has long been practiced for aircraft engines and other airborne oil-wetted systems such as hydraulic systems and gear boxes in helicopters. Military organizations are perhaps the number one users of oil analysis testing and commercial aviation also has a long history of oil analysis. A number of airlines throughout the world do their own oil analysis, but in many cases they send samples to commercial oil laboratories. Engine manufacturers also do oil analysis as part of engine development and testing.

  • Measurement solution for Perflurocarbon (PFC) emissions from aluminium industry

    The aluminium industry is the major source of perflurocarbon (PFC) emissions to the atmosphere, which are a major contributor to global warming. PFCs have greenhouse gas effects up to 10000 times that of CO2. Emissions have been reduced over the last 20 years, but further reductions are harder to achieve as all the mechanisms for PFC production are not known. In order to better understand the production of PFC on an industrial level, laboratory studies have been carried out using a small scale cell.

  • Percent Aromatics in Gasoline #3008

    The aromatic content of gasoline determines many of its combustion properties. Since it also impacts the environmental characteristics of the fuel it is desirable to have accurate measurements of this parameter. The traditional analytical method for measuring aromatics is either gas chromatography (GC) or an older method entitled fluorescent indicator adsorption (FIA), both of which are time and labor intensive. This note will discuss the use of Guided Wave hardware and software tools for the measurement of % aromatics in fuel products using fiber optic-based, Near-Infrared (NIR) spectroscopy. NIR can be applied in real time directly in process monitoring or as a laboratory procedure. In either case NIR is a time and money saving alternative to traditional methods.

  • Measurement solution for measuring total VOC via FTIR

    Current Total VOC Measurements

    The most common, and current standard, method for measuring Total Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) is the use of a Flamed Ionisation Detector (FID). This gives a representative value of the total carbon content of a gas stream, as the FID cannot tell which specific organic compounds are present.
