Pre-Operational Checlists Reinvented
When was the last time we boarded an aircraft and thought about what occurs in the cockpit? The activity that occurs before takeoff is meant to ensure that all the steps necessary are accomplished to ensure a safe flight not only for all personnel, but also the equipment. One missed step can lead to serious implications. 

Introducing the Principles of X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) Spectrometry
X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) spectrometry can be used to identify the chemical composition of an extensive range of materials, including solids, powders and liquids.

Process Heating Systems: Gas and Oil Fired
Thermal fluid heating ('hot oil') systems provide high efficiency and low pressure operations for temperatures as high as 700°F.

Vibrating Fluid Bed Dryers and Coolers
Witte first started building fluid beds in the 1946. Since then, the focus has been on building the vibrating continuous fluid bed processor due to the many advantages and broad range of applications it allows.

AAC3-8001 Pen Probes for Material Identification Applications
ABB Analytical’s advanced FT-NIR spectroscopy systems enable users to quickly and efficiently identify raw materials through plastic packaging of a variety of thicknesses.
