Polyurethane: A Smarter Choice For Flooring

When it comes to durable epoxy resin flooring, there is no smarter choice than an epoxy resin or polyurethane coating. These industrial strength floors are highly recommended for use within a variety of industry sectors. This is due to the fact that non-coated floors such as concrete are exposed to varying degrees of abrasion, friction and damage from sources such as vehicles and harsh chemicals. This will eventually result in holes and patches within the floor that are unusable and need to be avoided to deter employees from accidental injury.
Hygiene will also become an issue when not utilising the various attributes of an industrial floor coating. Without the coating a floor made from concrete will be nearly impossible to clean properly and will harbour a range of substances that can only be removed by using chemical compounds and cleaners. When dirty a concrete surface can become aesthetically displeasing; appearing dull and lifeless over time which can have an affect on staff moral…

What is Electron Spectroscopy?

Electron Spectroscopy for chemical analysis, or the ESCA systemfor short, is a science all to itself and branches from quantum mechanics. It is not a new science by any means, and has roots dating back to 1905 when Albert Einstein won the Nobel Prize in Physics for his interpretation, using quantum mechanics, of the photoelectric effect. This research facilitated the discovery of Heinrich Hertz and Max Planch that light indeed travels in an electromagnetic wavelength, as well of the discover of discrete energy portions. Nowadays, these discrete energy portions are named “quantum”, and all aspects of quantum physics is said to come from this truly ground breaking and pioneering research.

You might wonder just how quantum physics factors into chemical analysis, and the answer is that it affects chemical analysis just as much as it affects all of the sciences – quite a lot. This discovery assisted the progression of practically all of the sciences, and for chemical analysis in particula…

IR Spectroscopy Has Changed Thanks to the Anasys IR

Anasys Instruments of Santa Barbara, California, have come out with a brand new microscope which breaks the diffraction limit in order to provide, for the first time, and exclusively, the ability to provide submicron IR spectroscopy in a simple and efficient manner. This breakthrough will result in submicron IR spectroscopy and submicron IR Imaging to be used throughout a variety of applications for a great many sciences.

With its fast, easy, and optical non-contact technique, the power to go to the submicron level has been placed into the hands of more professionals than ever before thanks to this breakthrough from Anasys Instruments – and the gap between IR micro spectroscopy and nanoscale IR spectroscopy has been bridged accordingly thanks to the realms of possibility that this device can provide.

Anasys call this scientific breakthrough the mIRage – and there are a number in supply through their trusted distributors worldwide. Some of the disciplines that stand to gain from this …

Expert Witness Services

An Expert witness is called in when complex matters have been brought to light and making a judgement either for or against a specific legal challenge requires an in-depth knowledge of protocol or procedure which may not be easily accessible to a court.

Expert witness cases, particularly oil and gas expert witness cases, usually entail matters of which a court may not have the specific specialisation which is required to make an accurate judgement about the validity of said claims. An expert witness, in all matters, has be free of influence of their side of the argument in order to make a statement about affairs in a non-biased manner.

In the oil and gas reservoir evaluation industry in particular, the services of an expert witness are absolutely essential as contention is very much the name of the game.

The amount of expert witnesses is limited only by the number of specialisations out there – and essentially any specific field can have a number of expert witnesses in a number of re…

Stainless Steel Hoses Take The Pressure

A hydraulic system that is designed for use within the various industry sectors of today are becoming more and more demanding each day. The temperatures that are being reached during daily production are continuously increasing and space is becoming even more limited than ever before. The requirements of hose assemblies are needed to endure all of these drastic work conditions, whilst simultaneously handling the varying degrees of pressure. Stainless steel hose assemblies are the answer to all the potential issues brought by hydraulic systems today, and deliver only the highest quality performance when placed under demanding circumstances.
Stainless steel hoses are designed with a heavy wall of PTFE that is usable alongside almost any hydraulic fluid available today. Then tube within the stainless steel hose is able to disperse any static that subsequently provides a path of constant movement towards the hose fittings for smooth operation, which is beneficial for assemblies that induce…

The Basics Behind Industrial Hoses

Industrial hoses are an incredibly useful tool in a variety of manufacturing and production processes. Their characteristics and accessories can be equally variable, so it is vitally important that you know the basics of an industrial hose and how they can benefit the efficiency of workflow within your industry sector. Here we will look at the precise specifications that contribute to industrial hoses.
An industrial hose is a flexible container that takes a shape similar to a pipe, and is quite often made of rubber. These “pipes” are used to transport liquids, gases and certain solids from one part of a machine to another, or even a completely different area of the building.
Household hoses that a majority of people are familiar with will usually include the common garden hose; however, industrial hoses are used when larger volumes of substances are in need of transportation. Hoses transport those substances via their water-tight lining made of plastic or rubber, which is also encased i…
