Thermogravimetric: Automated

April 1, 2022

Traditional thermogravimetric analyses such as loss-on-drying or loss-on-ignition techniques are long processes with many manual steps as samples are measured and transferred and re-measured to determine the loss. Every touch increases labor requirements and the chance for operator error. But there's a better way.

Ferroalloy Factors: Oxygen and Nitrogen Determination

March 18, 2022

Most iron products these days are improved with the addition of ferroalloys, or iron alloys containing high levels of other primary elements. Ferroalloys are everywhere from cast iron to stainless steel. These extra elements help strengthen the metal by adding their own characteristics: silicon is used to deoxidize steel, manganese mitigates harmful effects of sulfur, and chromium increases corrosion resistance, to name just a few. But adding to iron is not without risk; if unwanted elements are part of the ferroalloy, they can weaken the resulting products.

Calming Crude Oil with the CHN828

March 11, 2022

The price of crude oil is one of the great drivers of our economy. At a minimum, the price of all goods includes costs of transporting them from manufacturer to consumer. But the price of crude oil and other oil materials can feel fickle, increasing and decreasing with supply or demand or even just market sentiment. Natural disasters or humanitarian crises can drastically impact availability or demand, sending prices hurtling skyward or crashing down. No refinery can control the entire market. All a refinery can do is operate their facilities in the most efficient and optimized manner. Doing that, however, requires an accurate way to monitor their process.

Sticking to Boards: Carbon and Nitrogen Determination in Adhesives

February 18, 2022

Wood is a strong, durable, and renewable resource that is popular in construction, especially for furniture, but it grows more expensive year by year. Engineered wood products such as medium-density fibreboard (MDF) or particle board are much more economical solutions that are common in many homes around the world. However, there is a certain danger in their manufacture that is important to monitor.
