Genevac Launches Evaporator for Lab & Batch Processing Tasks

5 x faster than other ‘intelligent’ evaporators!

new Rocket Synergy series

New Rocket Synergy Series

Ipswich, UK & Stone Ridge NY, USA — The new Genevac Rocket Synergy series sets a new benchmark in sample evaporation versatility through offering automated evaporation of a wide range of sample formats and sizes, from millilitres to tens of litres.

The Rocket Synergy can dry or concentrate up to six flasks, each containing a maximum of 450 ml of solvent, or 18 ASE® vials, with no user intervention or attention.

The Rocket Synergy flask rotor may be quickly removed and replaced with a stainless steel vessel allowing unattended automated batch processing of up to 5 litres per run to extend operational versatility.

Improving Accuracy in Measuring Molasses Temps

With Moore Industries’ WORM Flexible Temperature Sensor

Molasses_White_Paper_News_Release_Moore_IndustriesNORTH HILLS CA, USA — Moore Industries has released a case study highlighting the use of the WORM Flexible Temperature Sensor by American Crystal Sugar Company, the largest beet sugar provider in the United States.

American Crystal was able to use a custom WORM thermowell to more accurately measure temperatures and increase the efficiency of their sugar molasses production.

During the final steps of production of beet sugar, a mixture of sugar crystal and syrup called massecuite is centrifugally spun in a perforated cylindrical basket. This separates the molasses syrup and any non-sugar elements from the sugar.

American Crystal was having difficulty accurately measuring the temperature of the molasses using a standard thermowell with a rigid sensor for two main reasons: Continue reading

Quantifying Fugitive Emissions from Fracking Operations

OGI Identifies Leaks


FLIR GF320 Optical Gas Imaging Infrared Camera

Meer, Belgium  —  FLIR Systems GF320 Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) cameras are being used to identify leaks and unexpectedly high discharges of methane resulting from fracking operations to extract gaseous hydrocarbons from shale and coal deposits.

Studies in the USA and Europe have found that the largest releases of methane can potentially arise during hydraulic fracturing, in production trials and arising from venting and leaks during the completion phase and early production.

Because emissions from intensive fracking operations can have a significant impact on emissions of methane and other greenhouse gases, environmental agencies are looking, in conjunction with industry, to develop methods for estimation of emissions and regular emissions monitoring from these unconventional gas installations.

Award For Caregiver TouchFree™ IR Clinical Thermometer Used in Ebola Screenings

Thermomedics, Inc. Awarded Innovative Technology Designation

The Only Caregiver® TouchFree™ Clinical Thermometer

The Caregiver® TouchFree™ Clinical Thermometer

MIAMI FL, USA — (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Thermomedics, Inc, a division of Sanomedics  announced that its Caregiver® TouchFree™ Clinical Thermometer was awarded the coveted Innovative Technology designation by Novation at its Innovative Technology Expo on Sept. 10, 2014, at the Irving Convention Center, Irving, Texas, USA.

The Caregiver® TouchFree™ Clinical Thermometer does not require probe-covers, since it does not contact the patient, making it ideal for reducing risk of transmission of infectious disease.

It takes temperature in 1-2 seconds and is easy-to-use with minimal in service. The lack of probe covers also contributes to reduction of plastic waste and reduces costs for storage, as well. Continue reading

New Manifold Ensures Safe Secure & Efficient Reaction Cooling

Isleham, UK  —  The new DrySyn water manifold from Asynt optimises use of laboratory fume cupboard coolant use by converting a single water tap into three condensing streams and into one drain.

This novel lab accessory,  DrySyn water manifold,  is equally effective linked to a recirculating chiller or a Liebig condenser and avoids daisy chaining multiple condensers, keeping everything in your fume cupboard space tidy.. Continue reading
