New Whitepaper Helps with Selection of ICP-OES Spectrometer’s Plasma Interface: Axial-View, Radial-View, Dual-View or New Multiview

New Whitepaper Helps with Selection of ICP-OES Spectrometer’s Plasma Interface: Axial-View, Radial-View, Dual-View or New Multiview

New Whitepaper Helps with Selection of ICP-OES Spectrometer’s Plasma Interface: Axial-View, Radial-View, Dual-View or New Multiview

Kleve, February 4, 2015— A new whitepaper helps purchasers of new ICP-OESspectrometers through the critical — and complex — process of selecting the best appropriate plasma viewing interface for their intended applications. The paper is available to download from SPECTRO Analytical Instruments at http://goo.gl/VuH6qA.

The new whitepaper, “Selecting Your ICP-OES Analyzer’s Plasma Interface: Axial-View, Radial-View, Dual-View or New MultiView,” recommends that when considering a new ICP-OES analyzer purchase, users should focus their selection of the plasma interface based on the range of their applications and the elements they expect to analyze. Doing so, and understanding the benefits and drawbacks of each available viewing technology — axial-view, radial-view, dual-view, or MultiView — will help determine which is the best fit for their analytical tasks. In the whitepaper, each of the differing plasma viewing technologies are defined, their strengths and weaknesses are highlighted, and examples of typical applications are provided.

The paper also discusses a recent development in plasma viewing techniques — the sequential MultiView technology  — that transcends the various disadvantages of the “dual-view” approach by eliminating the use of added mirrors or periscopes. Instead, the MultiView solution enables the user to simply shift the direction of the plasma torch into a new axial or radial orientation with a relatively simple changeover that takes about 90 seconds. As a result, MultiView offers full axial sensitivity and full radial precision without any dual-view compromises — for the functional equivalent of two dedicated, fully optimized analyzers in one. The new technology is currently available in one version of the new SPECTRO ARCOS analyzer — making the spectrometer the only ICP-OES instrument that offers both axial and radial plasma views, but without bias or compromise.

Chicago (USA), December, 1, 2014:DECTRIS Ltd. is introducing its hybrid photon counting (HPC) detection technology to enable the next generation of medical imaging equipment — and transform everything from mammography to computerized tomography (CT).

Until now, X-ray detection in medical imaging has mainly relied on the indirect methods utilized by traditional integrating detectors lacking energy discrimination. Unlike these less sensitive devices, HPC detectors provide direct sensing of every single photon in an X-ray — made possible by innovations including optimized solid-state sensors and CMOS readout ASICs using hybrid pixel technology.

Given these properties alone, HPC should far surpass the performance of older technologies in terms of dose and resolution. Paired with advanced new imaging equipment and analysis algorithms, the additional spectral information will open up a new dimension in specificity.

“Designers and radiologists in the medical imaging world have been anticipating the arrival of detection techniques based on Hybrid Photon Counting — it shall allow best possible image quality and the highest sensitivity at the lowest dose.”, said Willi A. Kalender, Professor at the Institute for Medical Physics in Erlangen, Germany.

[Visit DECTRIS Ltd. at the RSNA 2014 Annual Meeting,
in North Hall B: 8047.]

DECTRIS is the world’s acknowledged leader in HPC detection, having produced more than 6,000 HPC detector modules to date — far more than any other source — for a variety of applications in science and industry. DECTRIS’ unique, pioneering HPC technology delivers:

  • Very high resolution — achieving the best signal-to-noise ratio via a noise-free signal with no dark current
  • Very high data rates — via dedicated ASIC and electronic design
  • Exclusive spectral information — via energy analysis, for simple color imaging
  • Highest (almost perfect) spatial resolution — via direct detection, without scintillators, fiber optics, etc.

As the leader in HPC technology, DECTRIS is ready to work with medical imaging OEMs to help realize such new possibilities as:

  • Highlighting microcalcification in breast tissue — with color images produced by new capabilities for energy analysis
  • Highlighting contrast agents such as iodine in mammography

Fluid Automation: Unsung Contributor to Plant Economic Performance — New Management Brief from ASCO Numatics

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Sept. 26, 2011 — While fluid automation products — valves, pneumatics actuators, and similar components — control the flow of a process liquid or a supply of compressed air, they can also help control the flow of profits, according to a new management brief from ASCO Numatics.  Titled “Fluid Automation: The Unsung Contributor to Plant Economic Performance,” the brief is available for download at http://goo.gl/9MMkH.

The speed and reliability of fluid control products can provide competitive economic advantages in industrial operations worldwide. This is due to their ability to extend overall equipment service life, reduce warranty costs, cut maintenance/repair/operations (MRO) inventories, and increase production uptime and productivity.

But the choice of fluid automation technology is critical. For end users, judicious selection of fluid automation components must play a key role in their performance improvement plans. For original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), the right fluid automation choices provide significant cost, time-to-market, and product competitive advantages.

The new management brief examines available solutions and discusses how they  have maximized both speed and reliability — and provided surprisingly strong contributions to the economic performance of industrial operations.

The contents of the brief include:

  • Changing the Rhythm
  • Feeding the Bottom Line
  • The Benefits of Reliability
  • The Power of Speeds
  • Advantages for the OEM
  • Advances for the End User

ASCO Introduces Stainless Steel Pilot Valves for Offshore Applications

FLORHAM PARK, NEW JERSEY, U.S.A., August 9, 2011 – ASCO Numatics, the world’s leading manufacturer of comprehensive fluid automation, flow control, and pneumatics solutions, has introduced the 8361 Series of stainless steel pilot valves. The series’ unique design eliminates the dormancy or “sticking” problems that can occur in control valves installed in the pneumatic logic panels that control monitoring safety systems in offshore oil and gas production facilities. In addition, the valve line was launched with online tools that permit rapid product configuration and ordering.

“Corrosion-resistance and reliability are essential for safe operation in harsh offshore environments,” said Robert W. Kemple, Jr., executive vice president, sales and marketing – Americas, ASCO Numatics. “The 8361 Series’ innovative, highly reliable, and proven T-seal technology resists the dormancy issues that plague current valves using O-ring seals. O-ring designs can stick upon actuation in low-cycle demand control valve applications. Our research shows that many users routinely hammer the sides of these valves to ensure they function properly,” said Kemple.

The 8361 Series (¼-inch NPT, 3-way, 316L stainless steel) valves are offered in manually operated, air-piloted, and solenoid-piloted versions. They can be configured as breathing and nonbreathing. The non-breathing version isolates internal components from the atmosphere and is internally vented, preventing contaminants such as salt and dust to enter the valve and corrode internal components.

The valve’s balanced design maintains the same flow characteristics when the valve is used in a normally open or normally closed configuration. This provides symmetrical flow that enables more flexible setup of the control panel’s pneumatic logic. The 1.4 Cv provides almost double the flow of comparable spool technology. In addition, the valve’s innovative pilot-selector design allows the same unit to be used as an internally or externally piloted solenoid valve, simplifying ordering and reducing inventory.

The 8361 Series’ solenoid version comes with ASCO’s renowned RedHat solenoid – recognized as the most reliable in the industry. Its 0.55-watt power consumption is three times less than competitive valves.

“Every aspect of this valve has been designed for the highest reliability, minimal maintenance, and lowest cost of ownership,” said Kemple. “For example, the valve’s body is made entirely of 316L stainless steel, and the Elgiloy® and stainless steel spring is designed for corrosion resistance and severe service beyond 1 million cycles.”

Online Tools Enables Rapid Configuration and Ordering

An 8361 Series online toolset is available that allows customers to quickly build a valve that meets a set of specific requirements. It then displays the list price, availability, 3D CAD drawings, and specifications for the configured product. The configurator generates an order code for the valve that permits an immediate online purchase, plus greatly simplifies the reordering process.

The 8361 Series valves can be purchased from ASCO distributors or directly from the company. Most of the valve’s configurations are available through the ASCO Today or 5-day shipping programs.
