How does an NIR analyzer work? What are the benefits of a desktop moisture analyzer versus a portable one? Can I test a specific moisture analyzer on the process line before purchasing? What is the best test instrument that will work for my unique requirements?
The Sochi Olympics has been a time of intense controversy, competition and celebration. It’s never anything less than inspirational to see athletes perform at the height of their abilities, as they seek to gain that slight edge that makes all the difference. The sense of achievement you can see from the gold medalists comes only from years of grit and sheer determination. There is no room for error. Each participant has had to build on the success of the past, while innovating new moves to appease some of the planet’s harshest critics. Truly, we can all learn something from these professional’s dedication to their craft. There is a great story to be told behind each gold, silver and bronze medal that the television audiences don’t often get a chance to witness.
As we discussed in last week’s blog, there are two types of friction: static and dynamic (kinetic). These values have traditionally been measured via incline methods and manual strain (or pull force) gauges. We’re now fortunate enough to have automated friction analyzers that provide substantially more precise (repeatable) measurements and are able to quantitatively distinguish very small differences in two samples or two proposed development versions. Moreover, recent technological developments have allowed for the novel, and widely popular, portable friction analyzers in addition to traditional desktop versions.
What is the weather like in your part of the world these days? If you are in the United States, chances are you’ve experienced some effects of the Polar Vortex, plunging the country into sub-zero temperatures. The deep freeze is affecting businesses nationwide, from manufacturers to agriculturists who are now seeking ways of coping with this unusual meteorological event.
