Circuit breakers are some of the most important components in modern electric power systems. The circuit breaker has to operate within extremely tight tolerances when a disturbance is detected in the network to protect sensitive and costly components such as transformers. They have to operate after months or in some cases years of inactivity. To ensure proper function and optimise network reliability, reliable and efficient test instruments and methods are needed.

Hielscher USA | Tue, 11 Mar 2014
Ultrasonic cavitation is an effective means for the dispersing and microgrinding (wet milling) of ink pigments. This technology can be used for UV-, water- or solvent-based inkjet inks. Ultrasound is very effective in the size reduction of particles in the range from 500µm down to approximately 10nm. This application note from Hielscher provides further details.
