VACUUM-SEALING PACKING MACHINES

We like our food to be as fresh as can be. Vacuum-Sealing packaging can extend the shelf life of food products by preventing exposure to the natural atmosphere, thereby slowing down the microbial deterioration of the product.

CLEAN MICRO AIR PURGE

Infrared temperature sensors are ideally suited for use in manufacturing, textiles, printing and other production settings, providing a highly effective solution to ensure machinery does not overheat or otherwise malfunction. However, oil, thread, dust, airborne chemicals and other debris emitted during production can quickly obscure the IR temperature sensing heads.

BLOW MOULDING

In the process of making PET bottles (polyethylene terephthalate) there is a fine line where the high output per bottle blowing machinery and the requested quality of the bottle come together. Taking into account that such machines must be able to produce a broad range of sizes and shapes and produce various quality bottles, it’s obvious that many variables must be kept under control during the process. One of the key parameters to control is the temperature.

PROCESS OF PAPERMAKING

During the process of papermaking, a dilute fiber suspension is drained through a screen, creating a mat of randomly interwoven fibers. Water is removed from this mat of fibers by pressing and drying it to eventually make paper.

FLYWHEEL/BEARINGS

A flywheel is a rotating mechanical device that is used to store energy. Energy is transferred to a flywheel by applying torque to it, thereby increasing its rotational speed, and hence its stored energy. Conversely, a flywheel releases stored energy by decreasing its rotational speed.

MEASURING BLOOD TEMPERATURE IN PERFUSION SYSTEMS

When supplying blood to patients it is essential that the blood’s temperature is carefully warmed to 37°C to ensure patient safety and wellbeing. Blood must be warmed to this temperature prior to infusion, because, depending on its source, the blood can be at room temperature, refrigerated or any temperature in between.

GRINDING USED PLASTICS IN GRANULATION MACHINES FOR RECYCLING

A significant amount of heat is created when PET bottles or other used plastics are ground for recycling using a granulation machines. When operators increase the granulation grinding wheel speed in order to maximize machine throughput, the temperature of the ground plastic increases further.

INFRARED FIXATION ON LARGE FORMAT PRINTERS

Flags, carpet, tiles and everything else that is printed on Large Format Printers with protective paint needs to be completely dried, cured or fixated before the end-products can be cut, folded, or otherwise worked on. Depending on the paint, most of the inks are water based and short- or middle wavelength IR lamps can be used for drying.

OFFSET, DIGITAL, INKJET DRYING PROCESS

For high speed graphic processes, the limiting factor on the productivity of the equipment is usually the drying/curing time. To maximize the speed without quality loss, it is important to be able to determine quickly when the substrate is sufficiently dry or cured.

SKIN TREATMENT SYSTEMS

Many medical or cosmetic skin treatment therapies (e.g. hair removal therapies, cellulite and acne treatment, skin rejuvenation) induce heat in one or more layers of the skin.

(IMMUNO) HAEMATOLOGY

For many medical biochemical assays performed in hospital laboratories it is essential to monitor and control the temperature of liquid samples accurately. In haematology instruments the results of assays can be affected by temperature fluctuations of the samples, risking faulty diagnosis for patients.

NON-CONTACT DOUGH MEASUREMENT

Measuring the temperature of bread and pastry dough while mixing is important since too high a temperature will cause too much rise, resulting in holes in the baked product, and too low a temperature will not allow the dough to rise sufficiently, resulting in a baked product that is flat.

PLATE READERS

For many plate reader assays performed in (hospital)laboratories it is essential to monitor and control the temperature of liquid samples accurately. In plate readers the results of assays can be affected by temperature fluctuations of the samples, risking faulty diagnosis for patients.

SPEEDING UP OFFSET, DIGITAL, INKJET DRYING PROCESSES

For high speed printing processes, the limiting factor on the productivity of the equipment is usually ink drying time. To maximize printing speed without quality loss, it is important to be able to determine quickly when the printed substrate is sufficiently dry or fused.
