New research designed to build scientific understanding of fruit genes could revolutionize the way foods, cosmetics and perfumes are created.
A new generation of Biotech and Pharmaceutical Vessels feature ‘Micro-Mixing’ technology, which designed to provide a solution for aseptic mixing of low volumes of product.
The Dual Container Dumper is designed to accept and discharge one or two containers loaded with a pallet jack at floor level. Custom hoppers include a manually adjustable slide gate for precise control of product discharge and a variable speed feeder control to adjust feed rates.
The Split Frame Unloader allows discharging of bulk bags and rigid totes from mezzanines and other low headroom areas. The unit allows the upper frame to be forklifted onto the plant floor, loaded with a bulk bag, and then forklifted back onto the subframe within several inches of the ceiling.
Designed for the chemical processing industries and water treatment facilities, this process line of stainless and carbon steel spiral mixers can handle high flow rates. The mixers are ideal for installations requiring 2 in. to 30 in. diameter piping.
The DT mixer – available in top-entering fixed mount, right angle drive or portable configurations – is ideal for a variety of industrial batch or continuous process applications.
The High Viscosity Disperser is designed to mix and blend high viscosity non-flowing materials, typically too viscous for a conventional high speed disperser. Applications such as pigmented pastes, inks, epoxies, polyesters and colorants are ideal for this design.
The new site from Adhesives Research Inc., Glen Rock, PA, uses a keyword-search engine and printable product data sheets in PDF format to present extensive information about pressure-sensitive adhesives.
Several proven technologies exist to transport pallets or large containers horizontally through a facility, and each option has its advantages and constraints.
The 2006 edition of the "Handbook of Crushing" from Pennsylvania Crusher, Broomall, PA, is available as a free CD-ROM. The illustrated manual provides an overview of mechanical reduction methods, a checklist of crusher selection criteria and an application analysis guide to the job specifications needed for crusher selection and sizing.
A free chart from NewAge Industries Inc., Southampton, PA, outlines the similarities and differences of PVC and polyurethane. Designed to help tubing and hose buyers understand the performance properties of both, the chart lists association standards, size, hardness, tensile strength, operating temperatures, working and burst psi, colors, weather resistance and custom options.
Labs are under tremendous pressure to increase throughput and improve detection limits. For samples that are complex, these goals are not congruent with the task of providing indisputable identification of chemical entities under ultra-fast conditions.
The 2007-2008 catalog from Cole-Parmer, Vernon Hills, IL, has 2,600 pages with more than 60,000 products including 11,000 new items. Products include tubing pumps, flow meters, fittings, valves, tubing and hose, mixers, filtration equipment and process control products.
A reactor is the pulsating heart of any chemical process, whether in industry or in the laboratory. Although it might be surrounded by other equipment such as separators and filters, the reactor is the key element where reactions happen.
