Thermal analysis, as the name suggests is analyzing the change in the properties of materials when they are subjected to different temperatures. Different techniques are used and the response of the material is then plotted as a function of temperature and time. This is an indispensable branch of materials science. It is crucial to determine the way a substance reacts to a change in
Over the years, microscopes have evolved from being magnifying glasses (then also called ‘flea glasses’ as they were mostly used to look at tiny bugs) to becoming complex equipment with adjustable powers. Today, they are one of the most commonly used apparatus in laboratories.
Where can they be used?
They are used to view anything from samples of minerals to cells of the human body: anything that is too small to be seen by the naked eye but must be observed for the purpose of scientific research or for
Planetary Ball Mills
Ball mills are used the world over in material processing plants, for grinding and mixing materials using steel, rubber or ceramic grinding media. This uses the forces of impact and friction with balls within the jar to mix ingredients and reduce particle size.
What are planetary ball mills?
While the traditional ball mill is a large cylindrical structure used for making paints, ceramics or building materials, there is also a much smaller looking ‘planetary ball mill’ that works on the same principle and can be used
A semi-microbalance is a small mass measurement device that can support weights of up to one hundredth of a milligram. Semi-microbalances provide precise measurements when you need a readability that reaches five decimals places as opposed to the four decimal places typically featured in regular analytical balances. When you are responsible for delivering accurate results, you need to make sure the equipment you are using can provide you with consistently accurate results.
The primary factors that you need to compare among standard microbalances are
The standard micro balance will usually provide precise measurements up to 22g. When you want overall performance and quality in order to obtain consistent and reliable small mass measurements, a standard micro balance will most likely be the right option for you.
