Halogens in LPG

Halogens in LPG

Simplified LPG analysis by ASTM D7994-17. Halides and sulphur in LPG are important factors for corrosion and pollution. Unfortunately, due to the volatile nature of LPG, analysis of these components is more complex than for standard liquid fuels. Automating one analysis for multiple parameters allows laboratories to lower the volume...

Raman spectroscopy analyses of road construction materials

Raman spectroscopy analyses of road construction materials

Solids used in road construction can be analysed with a hand-held Raman spectrometer. The materials examined are conventional pigments and resins, e.g., CaCO3, TiO2 and DEGALAN®. The measured spectra differ considerably from one another. In order to assess the main differences between the chemical structures, the peaks of the spectra...

Greater control of your colloidal grinding and solid state synthesis

Greater control of your colloidal grinding and solid state synthesis

Temperature control is a major concern in fine grinding applications and that’s where the Emax comes in. Automatic water cooling removes heat from the grinding jar, reducing the wait between grinding times and the peak in temperature which occurs during standard ball milling. New technologies pose new challenges to science...
