Mickael Febvre shows us the Veeco Dimension Icon high performance atomic force microscope (AFM). With large sample stage it can perform measurements in a variety of atmospheres.
Jorge Riveras from Spectro Inc shows us their Spectroil Q100 system for oil condition monitoring. It is used for testing of oil to determine the amount of wear that is taking place with valuable machinery and measures contaminants and additives. It uses the atomic emission spectroscopy operating principle.
The SurPASS from Anton Paar is an electrokinetic analyzer used for zeta potential measurement. The principle of operation is described graphically and areas of application mentioned.
Maarten van Andel from PANalytical shows us the SST-mAX50, the world's most advanced x-ray tubes which are used in instruments like the AXIOS XRF. They incorporate 2 key features, the no drift zeta technology and the chi-blue corrosion protection coating.
This video shows the functioning of the SpectroVisc Q3000 series viscometers from Spectro Scientific. These portable kinematic viscometers are solvent-free, temperature-controlled and easy to use, providing high-accuracy measurements for new and in-service oils.
This video shows Vidisco’s newly developed automatic software process for performing accurate Wall Thickness Measurement with ease using Digital Radiography.
This video shows the tensile testing medical tubing and catheters using AutoX750 from Instron.
Part 2 of a 3 part webinar by Micromeritics on physical adsorption. Physical adsorption is a technique used to characterize the surface and pore features of solids, that is, the materials texture. The adsorption isotherm generated by the Physical Adsorption technique enables one to characterize a solids' texture by determining its surface area, porosity, and total pore volume.
This video shows the Wilson VH3100 Automated Knoop/Vickers Hardness Tester from Buehler. (Language: German)
In this video, the capabilities of Thermo Scientific’s new TruScan RM (raw materials) analyzer are demonstrated by Duane Sword. The RM analyzer is designed for quick identification of raw materials and inspection of the final product.
