Infrared thermography

Tech Byte: transmission measurements and selective radiance downloadweblink

IRISSWed, 1 Jul 2015

Infrared (IR) thermography has never been a simple thing. Emissivity, reflections and transmission rates for IR windows can cause confusion and frustration without the proper knowledge, experience, training and skill. And those four qualities are exactly what the American Society for Non-Destructive Testing (ASNT) defines as certification. This paper from IRISS is intended to simplify the complex subject of IR window transmission.

Powder

Technical article: powder handling — a Guttridge speciality downloadweblink

GuttridgeTue, 30 Jun 2015

Powders can be considered as a type of granular material, but have a defining characteristic of consisting of relatively fine particles. This difference is a fundamental and important one that results in individual powders exhibiting far greater variability in bulk density than products containing larger granules. This is especially true of fine powders.
