Geotech G100 CO2 analyser animation

The Geotech G100, which measures CO2 from 0-20% and O2 0-100%, is used to demonstrate accurate and repeatable CO2 readings of the atmosphere inside incubators. It was specifically designed to monitor CO2 for the verification of incubators in medical, IVF-clinic, research and pharmaceutical applications.  For more information, click HERE.

Sugar beets could become blood substitute

Researchers at Lund University in Sweden have discovered that sugar beets produce haemoglobin. They now hope that this haemoglobin could serve as a blood substitute – a substance that is currently in short supply. For more click HERE.

Carson Optical Universal Optics Adapter HD

The IS-100 HookUpz Universal optics adapter connects most smartphones to any optical device in seconds. It fits any smartphone with or without a case (users can even use a charging case for hours of continual, uninterrupted use). The universal adapter can be used on binoculars, monoculars, spotting scopes, microscopes, telescopes or night vision.

It is very easy to use and no glue or complicated pieces are needed. The product features a self-centring clamp with release grips that can hold optics over a very large range of diameters for all types of optics. It fits a wide range of optics, with an outer eyepiece diameter of 20-58mm.

It’s small, portable and lightweight so users can take it anywhere and share images and videos captured in the field quickly and easily.

EHEDG certified pinch valves with EPDM sleeve for CIP / SIP Cleaning

AKO has passed the certification Type EL - Class I, Type EL aseptic – Class I of the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group EHEDG for its new air-operated pinch valves series VMCE.

The highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness are increasingly important in many areas of food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. Frequent product changes and difficult product features require regular wet cleaning. Since pinch valves are often installed in hard-to-reach places, manual cleaning can be very costly. A fully automatic cleaning, Cleaning in Place (CIP) saves time and money.

The new pinch valves, available in nominal sizes DN10-100 (3/8"-4"), are characterised by an easy-to-clean (CIP), sterilisable (SIP-capable) and bacteria-tight design in accordance with EHEDG certification type EL Class I and type EL ASEPTIC Class I. Furthermore, the VMCE pinch valves are piggable (RIP).

Air-operated pinch valves are the ideal solution for isolating and regulating abrasive, corrosive and fibrous products. The pinch valve is being used more and more as an isolating valve or regulating valve for emulsions, sludges, dusts, gaseous materials, compressed air, powder, granulates, pellets, etc. Another advantage in the use of pinch valves compared to conventional valves such as butterfly valves or ball valves, lies in the almost wear-free and absolutely tight shut-off of the product stream.
