  • ASTM B504 - 90(2011) standard test method for measurement of thickness of metallic coatings by the coulometric method

    Measurement of the thickness of a coating is essential to assessing its utility and cost. The coulometric method destroys the coating over a very small (about 0.1 cm2) test area. Therefore its use is limited to applications where a bare spot at the test area is acceptable or the test piece may be destroyed. 1. Scope 1.1 This test ...

  • New Crowcon gas detector reduces energy costs

    The new Crowcon Hydra addressable gas detection system provides a novel way of detecting toxic gases from vehicle exhausts, such as Carbon Monoxide (CO), oxides of Nitrogen (NO/NO2) and petrol vapour, in enclosed or underground car parks. Many car parks run ventilator fans continuously, but this is very inefficient and energy intensive. The Crowcon Hydra offers an alternative method of gas ...

  • GE helps Catalonia region make the most of scarce water supplies

    Spain, one of the most arid European countries, has a long-standing water supply strategy to desalinate and use brackish river water. That effort has just taken a giant step forward as GE and Aigües Ter-Llobregat (ATLL) have announced the opening of one of the world’s largest and most technologically advanced river water desalination plants, near Barcelona. The plant employs advanced ...
