The use of sophisticated sensors in the rail industry to enable and enhance the performance, safety, economy and efficiency of modern passenger and freight operations is commonplace. As this article in the ‘Mike Might Know’ series from Sherborne Sensors explains, sensors used in the rail industry must be able to reliably perform in very harsh and aggressive environments while experiencing extremes in temperature, vibration, shock and electrical disturbance.
As this article in the ‘Mike Might Know’ series from Sherborne Sensors explains, military organisations around the world are increasingly relying on advanced sensor technologies to improve the effectiveness of their weaponry, protect personnel, deliver other enhanced capabilities and reduce cost. The scope of applications for inclinometers within military platforms is extensive.
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.
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.
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 ...
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.
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.
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.
