A clean and safe environment is a pre-requisite for health and quality of life. BUCHI contributes to this by providing market-leading solutions for sample preparation and analysis to a wide range of industrial companies, environmental testing labs, consultants, and government authorities.
Manufacturers of food and beverages typically have a high volume of product passing through their facilities at all times. For this reason, any unexpected downtime can be very costly in terms of lost production. In addition, many food and beverage facilities have difficult challenges associated with lubricant contamination.
Applications of Acoustics and Electroacoustics for characterizing mineral dispersions are described in the papers listed below. Titration option of the DTI instruments is suitable for determining optimum dose of surfactant for stabilizing clay and mineral dispersions.
Machine condition monitoring using oil analysis is widely practiced by virtually every segment of modern industry that maintains large, expensive, oil-lubricated machines. In many cases, especially in smaller plants or enterprises, samples are sent to commercial oil analysis laboratories that can help monitor machinery health.
Both ultrasound based methods, Acoustics and Electroacoustics, can be used for monitoring effects of the plastisizer on the properties of cement slurry, as proved in the papers listed below. With no dilution. Elimination of dilution is critical for accurate measurement of the cement zeta potential Cement slurry could be affect very strongly by dilution. Zeta potential probe offers zeta potential measurement with precision 0.1 mV.
Optimize processes and deliver consistent quality. Maybe you’re serious about snacks. Or nuts about nuts. Maybe you’re all about oils. Or perhaps baked goods are your bread and butter. Whatever the case, you know that accurate moisture control is critical to the success of your food products. The Computrac® family of moisture analyzers will enable you to quickly obtain reliable, repeatable moisture content results, independent of operator skill.
Safely analyze solvent- and non-solvent-based coatings. Your customers rely on your paints and coatings to keep their assets safe from their environments. You can rely on Computrac® to provide accurate, reliable readings in minutes on solids and ash content for your products. Computrac Moisture, Solids and Ash analyzers can be used in ASTM method D7323-06, and can be correlated to other test methods, including D2369, and D5095. Further, Computrac® is the ONLY rapid loss-on-drying analyzer with Nitrogen...
Managing a fleet of vehicles presents its own challenges and can be very expensive with ever changing fuel costs and operating restrictions imposed by Government Legislation that demands cleaner running and regularly maintained vehicles. Adding Aquasolve™ to Hydrocarbon or Bio fuels will improve engine performance in commercial vehicles, reduce emissions and improve fuel consumption.
Quickly test cathode powders and other advanced materials: In batteries, it has never been more critical to get the best quality product to market. Whether intended for an electric car, a smartphone, or a smoke detector, the quality of any battery will depend on how accurately its moisture content is controlled. Computrac can help. Computrac can quickly provide moisture-specific and total solids content results in a manner that does not depend on operator technique. In addition to instruments based on the loss-on-d...
Moisture content analysis for medical devices has never been easy. The resins are sophisticated and very expensive, the customers are demanding, and a minuscule cosmetic defect can mean the difference between thousands of dollars of saleable finished goods and scrap. When working with the complex, high-volatile-content materials that make up modern medical devices, every part per million counts, and every gram of resin counts. That’s why Computrac designed the Vapor Pro XL.
The application chemists of the METTLER TOLEDO Analytical Chemistry market support group have prepared more than 500 of ready-made titration applications for use with the wide range of METTLER TOLEDO titrators. These proven and well-tested applications will help you to get accurate results quickly. Our online search engine allows you to search through the database.
High-sensitivity trace-level measurement of water in organic solvent was performed on-line, continuously in real-time. Parts-per-million sensitivity (10-ppm detection limit) was achieved which previously could only be achieved by the Karl-Fischer titration method.
Acidity in vinyl chloride can be quantified by measurement of hydrogen chloride (HCl) levels, serving as a quality measure and preventing corrosion of the storage and handling equipment. For this reason it is recommended to monitor and control HCl by means of AppliTek’s UPA Universal Process Analyzer technology.
A number of methods have been reported for the measurement of calcium in biological materials by flame photometry or titration. This method employs trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to precipitate the proteins and has been found to be adequate to extract all of the calcium from tissue samples. Sodium, potassium and phosphate caused no significant interference and calcium concentration in the range of 0 to 2 µg/ml is readily determined.
The exhaustive compatibility testing provided the technology with an acceptance within the industry beyond what could have been expected of a ‘new’ invention. The compatibility testing protocols used were very similar to those currently required by the aero industry for aviation jet fuel. This testing is also applicable to the oil industry. During the early development of Aquasolve™ it was suggested by an established scientific figure that one of the reasons for the permanent dissolving of...
If you make a living on chemical reactions, you know that accurate moisture, solids and ash content control is critical to a successful reaction. Whether your product is organic or inorganic, flammable or flame-retardant, exotic or commoditized, Computrac has an instrument that will help you make your process more productive, more reliable, and more profitable. The Computrac line of instruments can provide primary measurements for solids content, ash content, total volatile content, and water-specific moisture...
A Chemical-Free Alternative to Karl Fischer. Accurate control of moisture in lubricating oils is critical to keeping your most important machines in optimal condition, but historically there have been few good options for measuring moisture content. The “crackle test” is easy, but not accurate enough to keep modern machines running at their best. Karl Fischer titration is very accurate, but difficult to use, expensive to operate, and requires hazardous chemical reagents.
Reduce rejected product and wasted material. Nozzle drool. Impaired physical properties. Silver streaks and other cosmetic blemishes. If the moisture content in a resin is too high at processing time, you’re likely to end up with a costly, unusable mess. And as the materials science behind plastics continues to improve, resulting in stronger, lighter, and more durable resins, accurate moisture measurement and control will only become more critical. A moisture analyzer is an indispensable piece of equipment...
AppliTek’s analytical solutions for efficient wet etching processes can be used in the semiconductor industry where latest generation fabs have only accelerated the needs for process monitoring. With the increased speed of processing, precise chemical concentration control is becoming crucial to wafer processing in order to obtain consistency and more cost-effective manufacturing of integrated circuits.
In every aspect of design specification whether it be on Airframe fuel systems or engine fuel systems the aviation industry knows that one of its biggest problems is ingress of moisture / water, as it can and does lead to catastrophic failures in aircraft engines.
