Showers and Eyebaths ServicesMon, 20 Oct 2014

In order to handle the complexities of contamination on an operative’s clothing and skin, there is an argument to suggest that just the recommended ANSI Z358.1 standard of 15 minutes of dowsing time may, in many cases, not be long enough. This article discusses the benefits of bespoke units, which guarantee 30 minutes of tepid water, notwithstanding the extreme climatic conditions in which safety showers are sited.

Technical article: safety showers and eye baths — compliance is the starting point downloadweblink

BeteWed, 8 Oct 2014

Emergency safety showers and eye baths are vital pieces of first-aid equipment wherever there is a risk of dangerous chemical spillage. Safety showers must work as specified when required every time. This need for consistent and reliable performance means that, despite their simplicity, a great deal of thought needs to be given to their design. This article considers some of the features that make a good shower and why they are worth paying extra for.

Technical article: improve your scavengers by ultrasonic mixing downloadweblink

Hielscher USAFri, 19 Sep 2014

A scavenger is a chemical substance that is added to a mixture in order to remove or deactivate impurities and marring by-products. ln many reactions, an excess of starting materials is used to drive a solution phase reaction to completion. The final mixture is composed of the desired product and one or more unwanted side products. This article from Hielscher explains the uses of scavengers, the power of ultrasonic mixing and the benefits of ultrasonic scavenging and discusses batch ...

Ultrasonic cavitation in liquid

Technical article: ultrasonically assisted catalytic extraction downloadweblink

Hielscher USATue, 16 Sep 2014

Hielscher ultrasonic reactors are used in many industries to assist and improve the catalytic extraction processing (CEP) or so-called phase-transfer extraction (PTE). Catalytic extraction involves a heterogenous immiscible phase system, such as liquid-liquid or liquid-solid. Ultrasonic high-shear and cavitational forces improve the dissolving rates of solutes significantly, leading to a faster and more complete extraction.

Technical article: ultrasonic coal treatments for energy production download

Hielscher USAThu, 11 Sep 2014

The sonication of coal slurries contributes to various processes during the energy production from coal. Ultrasound promotes the catalytic hydrogenation during the liquefaction of coal. Furthermore, sonication can improve the surface area and extractability of coal. Undesired chemical side reactions during the de-ashing and desulphurisation can be avoided — accomplishing the process in much less time.

White paper: reliable demagnetisation of transformer cores download

OMICRON electronicsFri, 5 Sep 2014

Whenever a power or distribution transformer is isolated from the power system, it is likely that residual magnetism remains in the core due to the phase shift. However, residual magnetism also occurs when performing winding resistance tests. As manufacturers use these measurements in their routine testing, transformers can be regularly influenced by the effect of residual magnetism.

White paper: coding and marking challenges — common industrial print techniques download

MicroscanThu, 28 Aug 2014

Codes and markings, from best-before and lot dates to EAN or data-matrix barcodes to serial batch numbers and various unique identifiers, are there to ensure traceability and product safety, to protect consumers and to avoid counterfeiting. There are many different print techniques that manufacturers can choose, such as continuous inkjet, thermal transfer or laser coding. All of these techniques have their advantages and challenges.
