Thyracont Vacuum technology in Cancer Research
To improve therapies for cancer patients, scientists are continously working on the research and development of new cancer drugs and treatment methods. The Cancer Therapeutics Unit at the Institute of Cancer Research, London, uses Thyracont’s technology in its drug discovery programmes.
An essential part of their preparation process for potential new drug compounds is freeze drying or evaporation. With dried compounds, the chemical and physical properties of the active ingredient remain unchanged and relatively stable for a long time, simplifying transport and storage. To ensure consistent quality of produced compounds, their purity is assessed by mass spectrometry and NMR spectroscopy post drying.
Depending on the task, the compact vacuum gauges VD83 with Pirani sensor or VD85 with a combined piezo/Pirani sensor are used. One, the units monitor vacuum on RV pumps used in the evaporation and drying applications. Second, the gauges are used to ensure that turbopumps for post drying are only put into operation when reaching fine vacuum of e-3 mbar to improve the lifespan of the senstitive instruments and to extend maintenance intervals.
Marine monitoring is a variant of OPSIS
Marine monitoring is a variant of OPSIS general offers for continuous emissions monitoring (CEM) and process control. The special operating conditions on-board vessels call for special measures to comply with regulations and expectations. However, OPSIS has mastered this environment and has for many years successfully delivered systems for marine applications. Read more about marine monitoring.
Sulfuric Acid Production Plants OPSIS
The OPSIS DOAS system is different and provides sulfuric acid plants with an accurate analyser that can measure in temperatures up to 1000° C and with a maximum pressure of 1 Bar (G).
The system operates with a minimum of maintenance. The OPSIS DOAS system is a non-contact method, using an optical measurement path that operates across a duct. The optical light is transported in an optical fibre to the analyser and one analyser can operate several paths.
Besides the measurements of SO2, additional gases such as sulfur trioxide (SO3), water vapour (H2O) and oxygen (O2) can be measured.
Brady, 700% more key possibilities than a Standard Safety Padlock!
Our innovative SafeKey Lockout Padlocks help achieve the safest Lockout/Tagout procedures during maintenance operations. With 100 000+ unique keys, the locks can support large, company specific key hierarchies in which no 2 locks can be opened with the same key.
Highest lockout padlock safety and security
SafeKey Lockout Padlocks offer 700% more key possibilities than a standard safety padlock thanks to their innovative lock mechanism. With 100 000+ different keys, SafeKey Lockout Padlocks can optimally support custom hierarchies of large sets of keyed different padlocks that can be opened by a manager’s master key or grand master key when needed. Charted key numbers ensure no two keys in the same company will open the same lock if so required. Both non-conductive and anti-corrosion padlock designs are available for additional safety.
