Improving Sub-Ambient Reaction Reproducibility

Accurate, stable temp control from – 60 °C up to +150 °C

DrySyn SNOWSTORM reactor

DrySyn SNOWSTORM MULTI reactor

Isleham, UK  —  The DrySyn Snowstorm MULTI from Asynt provides a simple and highly effective way to perform multiple reactions in parallel across a large temperature range including sub-ambient chemistries such as organometallic syntheses and controlled rate crystallisation studies down to -60 °C.

Sub-ambient reactions have traditionally been difficult to undertake reproducibly on a small to medium scale.

The DrySyn Snowstorm MULTI is able to accommodate up to 12 vials or three 100 ml round bottom flasks offering sub ambient reactions in parallel without the need for jacketed reaction vessels, or ice baths.

Operating with a suitable chiller / circulator, a DrySyn SnowStorm MULTI provides accurate, stable temperature control down to -60 °C and up to +150 °C. Continue reading

Firefighters Portable Radios May Fail at Elevated Temperatures

Seven Models Failed in NIST Tests

firefighting radio testing

A portable firefighter radio is instrumented for testing in a NIST-designed apparatus that consistently creates thermal conditions representative of typical fire environments. Data and performance measurements recorded with the equipment are furnished to the National Fire Protection Association, which is developing a performance standard for portable radios used by emergency personnel.

Gaithersburg MD, USA –New test results* from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) confirm that portable radios used by firefighters can fail to operate properly within 15 minutes when exposed to temperatures that may be encountered during firefighting activities.

Firefighters rely on the radios to report their location and to communicate with other first responders as well as the incident command post or communications center.

Performance problems with portable radios have been identified by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health as contributing factors in some firefighter fatalities.

All seven of the firefighter portable radios tested by NIST failed to perform properly within 15 minutes when exposed to temperature levels encountered in “fully involved” fires, as when all the contents in a room or structure are burning. Continue reading

Enforcing Environmental Protection in the Netherlands

Report FLIR Systems GF320 camera can uphold regulations

Using the high sensitivity mode (HSM) on the FLIR GF320 even the smallest of gas leaks can be spotted. A leak that barely shows up on the regular thermal image (left) shows up clearly in high sensitivity mode (right).

Meer, Belgium — The Dutch Environmental Protection Agency (DMCR) is shown in an applications report* and video describing how it is using a FLIR Systems GF320 Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera to uphold regulations regarding fugitive gas emissions.

After comparing several possible monitoring techniques, including Differential Absorption Light Detection (DIAL) and Solar Occultation Flux (SOF), the report details how the DMCR opted for a FLIR GF320 OGI camera as its primary method of choice to detect, and pinpoint to source, airborne environmental pollutants.

Technical specialists at DMCR decided that while complementary methods such as DIAL and SOF are robust and can quantify site wide emissions, these technologies are very expensive to purchase, requiring large trucks to carry the equipment and require a lot of training to be used effectively.
