The bench is constructed from lightweight corrosion-resistant plastic and is mounted on wheels for mobility. The benchtop incorporates an open channel with side channels to support the accessory on test.
Volumetric measurement is integral and has been chosen in preference to other methods of flow measurement for its ease of use, accuracy and safety – there are no heavy weights for students to handle.
The preparation of coating formulations involves the dispensing and mixing of a variety of polymers, crosslinkers, catalysts, and other additives. Many resins and crosslinkers are relatively high viscosity materials and can be difficult to handle. Dispensing of these resins is accomplished through the use of disposable pipette tips and mixing by magnetic stirring. By using a disposable tip for each dispense, the chance for cross contamination is reduced and the need to thoroughly wash the pipette between each use is eliminated.
Flumes are specially shaped, engineered structures that are used to measure the flow of water in open channels. Flumes are static in nature - having no moving parts - and develop a relationship between the water level in the flume and the flow rate by restricting the flow of water in a variety of ways.
Polylab OS System- Polymer compounding and extrusion
Drive and control unit for the determination of rheological properties of molten plastics or other fluid materials. Measuring systems like mixers and extruders are connected by means of the self-centering plug and automatically recognized through the plug & play concept of the software. The individual limits of the measuring systems are recognized, transmitted to the controller and taken as alarm values.
The effects of physical parameters of a screw press machine on oil yield of seeds were studied using a KOMET Screw Oil Expeller. Different nozzle size (6, 10, and 12mm), extraction speed (21, 54, 65 and 98 rpm) and diameter of shaft screw (8 and 11 mm) were applied in this study. Different nozzle size, diameter of shaft screw and rotational speed do effect the percentage of oil yield. By using shaft screw with diameter of 8 mm had resulted to the decrease of oil yield with the increase of nozzle size and rotational speed.
