KIN-TEK Laboratories Inc.
Gas Blending System
KIN-TEK’s AutoBlend is a computer-controlled, multi-channel gas blending system for supplying a continuous flow of adjustable composition test gas mixture. Applications include sensor evaluation, analytical methods development and validation, contaminant effects testing, catalyst testing, odor simulation, gas filter testing and other applications. The system uses permeation tubes to add multiple trace components to the gas mixture. It features six independently controlled permeation channels and each channel can contain up to eight compounds for a total of 48 compounds.
CHLOR*RID International Inc.
CHLOR*RID International’s Chlor*Ion Meter is a patent-pending hand-held digital testing device that electronically measures chloride with an internal ion-specific electrode. The meter tests for chloride contamination and corrosion on surfaces in workboats, highways, bridges, railroads, aircraft, ships, dams and tanks. The meter digitally measures chloride in surfaces, removing operator error caused when either the testing tube is not read correctly or results are recorded incorrectly. In addition, it eliminates the need for a glass titrator tube.
Supercritical Fluid Technologies Inc.
Supercritcal Fluid Extraction
Supercritical Fluid Technologies’ SFT-100 supercritical fluid extraction is designed for research and process development. Process parameters developed in the laboratory are essential in the scale-up to pilot- or production-scale equipment. Precise control of temperature and pressure ensure reproducible extractions. The unit uses dual sapphire syringe pump technology and integrated pre-heaters to ensure tight control over these key parameters. Supercritical fluid extraction has become a popular alternative to traditional extraction using organic solvents.
Fleet Maintenance Module
Routeware’s VehiclePort is a new fleet maintenance module for Routeware’s HomePort line of analytical tools for waste haulers. Using the real-time data dashboard and easy-to-read graphs, waste haulers can quickly identify and resolve problems with their fleet. The technology reads data collected directly from the vehicle’s built-in controller-area network bus and sends it back to the office via the company's on-board computing system. This tool provides a real-time view of vehicle health, fuel economy and tailpipe emissions.
JM Science Inc.
The Aquacounter HG-400 Low Cost Mercury Analyzer from JM Science provides greater accuracy and sensitivity through an improved optical flow path optimization and is designed to measure trace levels of mercury. The HG-400 is equipped with a large 7.5-inch color touch screen, comes with a built-in printer, and an expandability to communicate with a flexible sample changer. Four different sizes of sample solutions; 5, 20, 100, and 250 mL can be accommodated by adding a few optional components to the instrument.
Endress+Hauser’s Liquiphant M is a density meter that provides on-line measurements, eliminating the need for off-line procedures and laboratory measurements. A built-in density calculator can be customized with complex tables and mathematical interdependencies. The meter can be customized for content measurement and concentration, quality statements, purity indication, product identification, as a changing variable indicating the metabolism in relation to kinetic statements or as a basic variable for physical calculations or simulations and for clarification of how much material is contained in a given volume.
Forston Labs’ LabNavigator is a handheld analytical meter for the lab, plant/facility or field. It collects data from a variety of sensor types including pH, ORP, ISE, colorimeter, turbidity, spectrophotometer, conductivity, TDS, salinity, force or impact, gas detection (such as CO2, O2), as well as soil moisture. The unit comes with an interface, electrode amplifier, temperature probe, USB cable, USB storage device, AC power adapter, NavPilot data analysis software and NavCoPilot method development software.
Traceable Dissolved Oxygen Pen
Control Company’s Traceable Dissolved Oxygen Pen has a tough ABS plastic housing and water-resistant design with o-ring seal and membrane keypad to ensure a long life in severe lab or harsh plant environments. The hold button freezes the reading on the display. The high contrast, easy to read 3/8-inch-high LCD digits simultaneously display oxygen concentration and temperature. The unit recalls minimum/maximum readings at the press of a button.
Energy and Resource Management System
The EcoView Commercial energy and resource management suite from Advanced Telemetry monitors and manages HVAC use through real-time consumption monitoring and climate control. The wall-mounted touch panel receives consumption data in real time from a metering device installed at the breaker panel where the electricity mains enter a building. Users can access real time electricity consumption data onsite and remotely through an online interface. The product is designed to reduce energy consumption in small commercial buildings.
Metrohm’s 850 IC system and particle-into-liquid sampler tests air pollution by providing quasi-continuous measurements of inorganic compounds in ambient air. The system removes gas-phase compounds, and the remaining aerosol particles are dissolved to water via a supersaturated steam phase. The liquid sample is then transferred to the IC system for analysis. The unit provides a high temporal resolution of measurements, allowing users to record changes in the ionic composition of ambient air.
