Technical article: Mike Might Know — semiconductor strain sensors download

Sherborne SensorsTue, 21 Oct 2014

Apart from its originally intended purpose for strain measurement, the metallic resistance strain gauge is extremely commonplace in transducer applications. Its low cost, high accuracy and ease of application make it an ideal transduction element and it is widely used in pressure, load, force, torque and displacement transducers. However, this article in Sherborne Sensors’ ‘Mike Might Know’ series focuses on semiconductor strain sensors.

Technical guide: on-site calibration — doing more with less downloadweblink

GE Measurement & ControlTue, 14 Oct 2014

Day-to-day activities, such as carrying out maintenance or emergency repairs, commissioning new equipment or conducting on-site checks, need to be simplified because of the reduction in personnel and increase in workload. As this guide from GE Measurement & Control explains, use of the most advanced on-site instrumentation is imperative in order to maintain and calibrate today’s intelligent, high-precision equipment; this aspect applies to all process applications.

Technical article: continuous inline measurement of A-R binder viscosity download

Fullbrook SystemsTue, 14 Oct 2014

Continuous, in-line measurement of asphalt-rubber (A-R) viscosity provides a new window into the A-R process. This measurement can assure the binder is not under- or over-reacted, that dosing is precise, and that the processing system is performing to specification. In automatic blending control systems, viscosity measurement can be used as the process variable around which temperature, heating time, mixing time and the addition of additives can be controlled. This technical article ...

Application note: effect of raw materials on a formulation download

Fullbrook SystemsWed, 8 Oct 2014

Cosmetic preparations can be complex dispersions with different kinds of particles in suspension in an aqueous or an emulsion phase. For make-up and sunscreens, the colour, brightness, gloss and physicochemical properties of the suspended particles determine the final quality and stability of the product. This study shows a comparison of the stability of sunscreens, with different pigment types.

PlanviewWed, 8 Oct 2014

Overcommitting and under-utilising resources has a domino effect of business impact on project timelines, business opportunities, customer satisfaction, innovation speed, cost containment and resource efficiency. For years, organisations have pointed to the dilemma of overcommitting their resources as their top pain point. This dilemma is often characterised as an insatiable demand for new projects to grow the business, while sustaining the current state of business.

Application note: effect of an antibiotic on the stability of injectable emulsions download

Fullbrook SystemsFri, 3 Oct 2014

The injectable lipid emulsions are dispersions made of purified natural oil (soya, sesame, olive, cod-liver oil and so on) in water. The emulsification is made with natural emulsifiers (for example egg or soya lecithins) or/and synthetic emulsifiers (for example glycerol monostearate). These emulsions are used for therapeutic nutrition in order to transport medicines or liposoluble drugs, instead of inorganic solvents.

DV-II+ programmable viscometer measures at the lowest shear rates

Technical article: real-time monitoring of the rheological properties of fracturing fluids download

Fullbrook SystemsWed, 1 Oct 2014

Brookfield Engineering’s Charles Wesley recently presented ‘The Development and Real-Time Monitoring of the Rheological Properties of Frac Fluids Using Laboratory and In-Line Instruments’ at Oceantex. As part of the laboratory development of the fluid, its rheology must be measured, evaluated and understood over the majority of shear rates likely to be experienced at the well site so an understanding of the fluid’s behaviour is known before it is pumped through the system.
