Thermo Fisher Scientific Introduces the Thermo Scientific Model 60i Full-Extractive,Multi-Gas Analyz

Thermo Scientific Model 60iThermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today announced the new Thermo Scientific Model 60i, a full-extractive, multi-gas analyzer that features non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) optical filter technology to ensure accurate, precise measurement of up to six gases, including CO, CO2, NO, NO2, and SO2. The Model 60i also accommodates an optional O2 measurement capability using either an affordable electrochemical cell or, when high accuracy and reliability are required, paramagnetic technology. In addition, the unit is designed with built-in safeguards that protect the analyzer in the event of a sample conditioning system malfunction.

The high sensitivity of the Model 60i requires as little as one quarter the flow rate of other instruments, exposing the analyzer and sample conditioning system to less particulate and water for more dependable operation. The Model 60i also possesses a wider dynamic range than other multi-gas analyzers, requiring less configuration.

Time To Clean Up

Dust ControlIn this article, Dustcontrol highlights problems associated with dust pollution in modern production facilities and illustrates how integrated high vacuum systems can provide competitive advantage. Intense workloads and pressure to produce quality products are
creating demand for cleaner production facilities. However,manufacturing intensity seems to make this need harder than ever.

Airborne dust and particulate waste from manufacturing processes are increasingly nacceptable in facilities trying to achieve efficient working environments. If physical concerns over product quality and environmental health are not enough, external pressures from COSHH and recent ATEX regulations, add to the burden.

While it may seem that air cleaning through large-scale ventilation is a primary option, many businesses could improve their facilities through on-tool extraction.This involves high vacuum systems that transport waste to a centralised location for easy disposal or intermediate pre-separators for potential recycling. Such systems can also be used as general in-house vacuums, negating the need for sweeping (which creates hazardous airborne dust) and mobile vacuums.

West London Waste chooses wet dust extraction units from CEE

Carter West LondonCarter Environmental Engineers recently completed installation of five Carter-Midac AS820 Autosludge wet dust collectors at the West London Waste household refuse facility in Brentford, Middlesex. Ensuring clean working conditions for operatives and refuse vehicle drivers, they replace the five original CEE dust collectors which had been in operation at the depot since its opening in 1977.
 
    The five units remove airborne dust from ten tipping bays at West London Waste, whose refuse vehicles bring in around 850 tonnes of household waste daily from the London boroughs of Ealing, Hounslow and Richmond. After compaction, the waste is transferred by rail from the depot to landfill. 

    The units, like CEE's Cyclovent which can be specified for a similar task, are extremely simple in design, requiring no expensive specialist components or control equipment, ensuring minimum maintenance.  They have a long-established track record in many industrial sectors.
