Manufacturing & processing learning center features
On demand webinar
Learn about the basics of characterizing battery materials and the special equipment required to run these tests, including the basics of testing battery materials and exemplary case studies.
Sign up for one of our on-demand webinars to learn how infrared and Raman spectroscopy can help you reveal the mysteries of your polymers—from research and failure analysis to quality control and beyond.
There have been reports from the U. S. Food and Drug Administration that certain foods and beverages, particularly fruit juices, contain high levels of phthalates. In some cases, deliberate adulteration of soft drinks with phthalate esters has been reported, thus the need for an analytical procedure for quantitative analysis of phthalate esters.
The Thermo Scientific Nicolet iS50 FTIR spectrometer, with automated optical configurations and multiple sampling stations, is the ultimate materials analysis workstation for the entire polymer supply chain, from raw pellets to finished goods.
SampleArray automation assembles user-defined tube rack configurations at room temperature or -20°C and can be used with a range of systems.
The metallurgical industry is one of the biggest users of gamma ray sensors for inventory, process control, and quality assurance. Learn the basic theory of gamma transmission gauging techniques found useful in mining, milling, and metal production for level and density measurement applications.
