Revolutionary methods require new approaches
Modern aircraft operation makes extreme demands on technology and materials. It must be borne in mind that modern jets travel routinely at a height of 10 000 meters where the temperature is permanently at a polar level down to below -60 °C. The passengers themselves do not experience such conditions, but fuel in the tanks […]
In satellite technology travelling wave tubes are used as efficient and robust amplifier systems for microwave signals. The demands on quality and reliability of the tube amplifiers are very high. Their average economic life time in orbit, e.g. in geostationary satellites such as Astra is approximately 15–18 years. Intensive function and stress tests are carried […]
Frost heaves are a special kind of physical alteration of stones and other solids. They are caused by changes between frost and dew periods. Most common visible results are deformation and upward thrust of the ground surface. At the University of Alaska artificially generated frost heaves are examined in a model scale. For simulation of […]
Thermoplastics could not be developed without stability test methods according to DIN and ISO standards. A test apparatus permitting precise thermal process control is presented.
The pharmaceutical industry is still dominated by flexible batch process and segmented unit operations. This article presents a portfolio of reactor equipment designed to facilitate the development flow process in this sector. using a unique scalable flow platform, the researcher can now rapidly evaluate and optimise synthetic processes on mg quantities of material and subsequently […]
The cooling of X-Ray equipment is crucial, especially when it’s part of a highly advanced three-dimensional imaging system. When Thermal Exchange Ltd was approached by a renowned manufacturer of X-ray inspection equipment to provide a bespoke x-ray cooling cooling solution, they immediately set about establishing their requirements and were soon designing the initial prototypes. The […]
