Metallizing is the general name for the technique of coating metal on the surface of objects. Metallic coatings may be decorative, protective or functional. Energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) provide rapid analysis of the thickness and composition of single- or multi-element coatings like hot dipped, electroplated, sputtered, ion plated, thermal spray, plasma spray and other conversion coatings. Coating materials must be applied in certain thickness specifications in order to express the desired character...
WesTech provides process equipment for the sand aggregate industries including thickeners, screening and separation, and mixing technologies which provide for production of cement, and a myriad of materials for the construction industries.
Silicone oil coatings serve applications from mold release to protective barriers. X-ray Fluorescence (XRF), a standard technique across the coatings industry, is used to determine coating weight, thickness and/or composition.
Our labs are USDA recognized and are under government grants to conduct food microbiological research. Approved test methodologies include carefully selected FDA, USDA, BAM, USP and AOAC official methods. For more information about food safety methods, check out these Food Safety Guides. The MiL routinely performs rapid microbial identifications, confirmations, and tracks contaminant sources of all pathogenic, indicator and spoilage organisms using the latest technologies such as GC FAME, Biolog, Ribotyping, and...
The food processing industry is full of trends and challenges, as well as opportunities. In this competitive marketplace, success often depends on a business’s ability to deal well with difficult issues and anticipate the next hassle. Versatile, high-performing equipment can be a large part of that.
In water treatment the main processes used are demineralization, softening, ion exchange, gravity and pressure filtration. Trislot wedge wire screens are used in these processes to collect or distribute the treated liquid, to retain the treatment media, to filter solids. The main advantages compared to perforated plate, wire mesh or other filtration media are: high efficiency, long service life, flexible design, low maintenance.
The water and waste water treatment industry has a variety of applications which has benefitted from the use of wedge wire screens. Wedge wire screen is now widely used to aid in the reduction of solids in municipal and industrial applications. Reduced environmental pollution levels and lower costs are a direct result of installations using wedge wire products.
The number of pesticides and other potentially dangerous toxins is increasing constantly, posing special analytical challenges. It is crucial to screen food for the presence of toxins accurately and reliably, and to ensure the safety and quality of nutrition. To do so, we have to have the knowledge about how to deal with several hundreds of different poisonous matters. Bruker delivers solutions that meet the requirements for the identification and quantification of toxicants during the screening of each sample....
U.S. Screen Company has been manufacturing industry-leading filtration products for Brewing Industries. Offering durability and longevity, our screens are ideal for the unforgiving environments of food and beverage processing. Our screens ensure efficiency while providing lower costs when it comes to operation and maintenance.
Water screening for the detection of pollutants owning to large classes of chemical compounds such as triazine, fenylurea, diazine and phenolic pesticides can be performed. The presence of environmental pollutants can be determined utilizing biological materials such as photosynthetic biomediators (Plants, Algae, Cyanobacteria) and enzymes (e.g. Laccase or Tyrosinase).
AMPBIO-ITO Light provides amperometric measurements performed on electro-active biological material suspended, deposited or grown on an Indium...
Breweries and the other beverage industry make extensive use of the Trislot screens in various functions. The main advantages compared to perforated plate, wire mesh or other filtration media are: perfect clean ability, thanks to stainless steel construction, surface filtration and non-plugging slot design, precise slots, high open area, long service.
Corn refiners can appreciate the many advantages of the Trislot looped and welded screens compared to wire mesh, perforated plate or other filtration media: very precise slots, smooth screen surface, optionally polished, high open area thanks to fine profile wires, low maintenance, looped or welded execution available.
Trislot screens have many applications also in the pharmaceutical industry. Besides the classical application in water treatment systems (ion exchange, molecular sieve,... ) the screen are used for classification and in dryers/coolers. The Sintered Laminate is used in Nutsche filters for the pharmaceutical industry.
Parallel Synthesis is a technique widely used by researchers to speed the discovery of new compounds and screen for optimal process conditions. In the pharmaceutical industry, Parallel Synthesis speeds the discovery and development of potential drug candidates. Early practitioners coined the term `combinatorial chemistry` to describe the synthesis of large libraries with diverse chemical structures screened in mass for potential biological activity.
Correct safety evaluation of chemicals and pharmaceuticals is essential to protect consumers. For industries, realistic safety evaluation is of equal importance. The use of experimental animals in safety evaluation is under pressure, not only because of obvious ethical reasons, but also because these tests are expensive, time consuming, low in throughput and often give unsatisfactory predictions of human toxicity.
