A tension-torsion universal testing machine is available for testing a variety of specimens. The most common type of test conducted on this machine is in simple tension and/or compression using metallic or cementitious specimens. The machine has been used for performing numerous low and high cycle fatigue tests on steel specimens, weld coupons, and other metal objects. In its bi-axial mode numerous experiments have been conducted on the tension-torsion behavior of steel bars, steel tubes, concrete cylinders and concrete-filled steel tubes.
The atomic force microscope or scanning probe microscope is used to image the surface of a material from nanometer to atomic scale. This is accomplished by scanning the surface with a fine tip attached to a cantilever in contact or tapping mode. Lasers are used to measure the cantilever deflection during scanning. The AFM can also be used to map magnetic domains and conduct phase imaging on a material surface.
This simulator was designed and constructed based upon the principles of the Norton Ladder Type Rainfall Simulator. This simulator is the standard for research involving simulated rainfall. The interest in testing erosion control products and increased regulations involving storm water quality has created a need for accurate testing equipment. The ability to accurately simulate rainfall has grown in necessity as testing of such materials increases.
Phoenix 8000 is ideal for applications requiring high sensitivity, such as: drinking, pharmaceutical grade, (Clean-in-Place, Water-for-Injection), ground, surface, semiconductor grade, steam power and ultra-pure water. Source and Drinking Water: TOC analysis is a simple, fast and inexpensive screen to determine natural organic material (NOM). Phoenix 8000 meets requirement on Standard Methods 5310C and 5310B, EPA Methods 415.1, 415.3(New), 9060, and EN-1484.

The FM61 is a small-scale reaction turbine unit, which is designed to be used in conjunction with the FM6X service unit. A reaction turbine uses the momentum transferred from the reaction of a jet of water leaving a nozzle to generate power.
Discharge, bathymetry, and current profiling. The RiverSurveyor M9 is a river discharge measurement system without the traditional limitations. Small, portable and easy to use, the patented RiverSurveyor measures in extreme flood or drought situations within a single instrument, and without changing user settings. The results speak for themselves - the RiverSurveyor M9 has revolutionized the way discharge is measured in rivers and canals.
