Caramel colorings are used as additives in a broad range of food and beverage products to impart a desired color, but have no nutritional or preservative function. Recently, the potential hazard to humans of
ammonia- and ammonia-sulfite-process caramel colorings was raised, because they contain the by-product 4-methylimidazole, which is a potential carcinogen.1 The methylimidazole compounds are difficult to analyze due to their polar nature and low molecular weight. Traditional reversed phase techniques are...
When analyzing water and food, trust plays a very important role.

WesTech offers combined sewer overflow (CSO) equipment, which greatly helps communities where excessive rain events cause the sewer system to be overwhelmed. WesTech provides multiple solutions that will optimize your collection and retention facilities and reduce the contaminants released during CSO events.
Paper manufacturers are moving away from dedicated `make-up` rooms where traditionally they would mix their own dyes. Dyes are now delivered pre-packaged in totes. This creates a demand for a pump that can quickly and easily change from pumping one dye to another. With a Watson-Marlow peristaltic pump, the dye is contained within the tube so there is no need to flush between dye changes.
In addition, because the dye does not come into contact with any moving parts it will not damage the pump, reducing maintenance...
