Endress+Hauser Introduces Free Chlorine Analysis System

Uses amperometric sensor technology, eliminating the need for costly reagents

Free Chlorine Analysis System June 20, 2017 — Endress+Hauser introduces amperometric Free Chlorine Analysis Systems, compliant to EPA Method 334.0.

The systems eliminate the need for costly reagents and accompanying required maintenance, making the system ideally suited for applications in drinking water, industrial water, power and other industries where water is disinfected using chlorine.

Each turnkey system is panel-mounted with an amperometric free chlorine sensor and a pH probe mounted in an integrated flow assembly, sensor cables, and an Endress+Hauser Liquiline transmitter, either the CM442 or CM444.

An integral flow switch mounted in the flow assembly monitors for proper system flow, and provides an alarm at the transmitter if flow is interrupted. A lead-free regulator sets system pressure to 15 psi.

The CM442 transmitter has two sensor input channels and two 4-20 mA HART outputs, while the CM444 transmitter version comes standard with two sensor input channels, and can handle up to eight sensor inputs if desired, two 4-20 mA HART outputs, and additional I/O, such as digital communications.

Each transmitter has a NEMA 4X (IP66) rating and all other components are waterproof, making the transmitter suitable for installation indoors, outdoors or in an enclosure.

System tubing is 3/8-inch stainless steel. All components are installed on a 20 x 20-inch stainless steel panel prepared with 3/8-inch ID mounting holes, for secure mounting to a vertical surface.

Stainless steel inlet and outlet shut off valves, with 1/2-inch female NPT fittings, allow for system isolation during routine sensor maintenance. The pH-compensated measurement ensures accurate DPD verification, and a separate 1/4-inch sample valve allows a DPD verification test for residual chlorine to be performed without interrupting system measurement.

The independent DPD verification test capability also ensures compliance with EPA requirements.

A built-in needle valve in the flow assembly provides flow control between 30 and 120 L/hour, and an inductive low-flow alarm switch indicates when flow is too low for proper measurement.

Both the free chlorine and pH sensors are industry-standard Memosens digital sensors that eliminate problems associated with analog sensor technology.

The systems are equipped with a Cloromax CCS142D Memosens Free Chlorine sensor in ranges of 0.01 to 5 ppm or 0.05 to 20 ppm, while the Orbisint CPS31D Memosens pH sensor measures 1-12 pH. Optional Memobase Plus hardware and software enables intelligent sensor management.

Z-Axis Microscope Focus Blocks Prior Scientific

Prior Scientific has announced the new FB series of Z-axis motorised focus blocks that offer precise and repeatable positioning of loads with a weight of up to 14 kg.

When creating an imaging system it is often necessary to move components and samples, such as an XY microscope stage, vertically. Achieving precise movement in the Z-Axis is essential for high quality imaging, but can be difficult, especially with heavier components.

Designed and manufactured to the highest standards – Prior Scientific Z-axis motorised focus blocks deliver the repeatability (± 0.7 µm) and precision (± 20 nm) required for almost any imaging application. Even with a full load, these motorised focus blocks may be driven between 1 and 14 mm/sec over a travel range of 38 mm, making them a versatile choice for integration with a wide range of imaging systems.

Ranging from a simple stand-alone motorised linear axis focus block through mounts for holding stages for incident and transmitted light experiments to encoded devices where overall accuracy and precision is paramount, standard and custom FB series motorised focus blocks are available to suit most applications.

FB series motorised focus blocks, as well as any mounted Prior XY microscope stage, can be controlled via Prior’s ProScan III control system. This control system integrates into a wide variety of imaging applications, potentially allowing every component of the imaging system to be controlled from a central point.

For further information on the FB series of Z-axis motorised focus blocks please visit www.prior-scientific.co.uk/Products/Focus-drives/Motorised-linear-axis-FB-range.aspx or contact Prior Scientific on uksales@prior.com / +44-1223-881711.

Prior Scientific has been manufacturing top quality, high performance equipment and instruments for optical microscopy since 1919. Prior Scientific produces a wide range of motorised stages, system controllers, robotic sample loaders and illumination devices.

Field Flow Fractionation of Proteins, Macromolecules and Nanoparticles

AF2000 MultiFlow FFF - Universal Separator

AF2000 MultiFlow FFF – Universal Separator

Online   —  The Postnova AF2000 MultiFlow is a high performance Flow Field-Flow Fractionation (FFF) platform for separation of proteins, macromolecules and nanoparticles.

Modular in design, the AF2000 MultiFlow incorporates the combined experience, expertise and technological advances from Postnova Analytics’ nearly two decades of leadership in FFF. Incorporating a range of FFF modules in a single integrated system to provide universal separation, the AF2000 MultiFlow offers more flexibility, better performance and more robust results than any system before.

The AF2000 MultiFlow platform is based on the Flow FFF principles using a unique crossflow field design in which samples are separated by their dynamic diffusion on the basis of molar mass or particle size.

Because of this design and the absence of any stationary phase, field-flow fractionation on the AF2000 MultiFlow can be performed without exerting shear forces and stress on the molecules or particles being separated. Continue reading

Online –/EurekAlert!/– A group of researchers, led by Prof. Yuji Matsuura of Tohoku University’s Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering, has developed a method of measuring blood glucose using far infrared light, which is both harmless and non-invasive.

Diabetes patients traditionally monitor their daily blood glucose levels by using a conventional meter which requires blood sampling from the finger tips.

The discomfort of pain and risk of infection can sometimes be a source of great stress and concern.

To address that, other researchers have proposed and developed non-invasive methods for glucose measurement using near infrared light. Continue reading
