Due to the ongoing miniaturisation in industrial sectors like automotive, electronics or medical, the development of new manufacturing processes which are suitable for micro system technologies gains more and more importance. The miniaturisation of components leads to challenges in the manufacturing of micro parts. One application area is the manufacturing of moulds for the micro powder injection moulding (μPIM) process. This process requires good surface qualities and a sufficient demoulding behaviour of the moulds. Micro milling, micro electrical discharge machining (μEDM) and micro laser beam machining (μLBM) are appropriate processes for the manufacturing of micro structures in different materials. Abrasive micro peening can be used for further precision treatment. Depending on the desired structure a single process or the combination of several processes has to be chosen to obtain superior surface qualities of the moulds. This paper deals with challenges and limits of the manufacturing processes among others exemplified on a gearwheel mould.
Separating micro pollutants by an innovative membrane process.
Combined adsorption of micro pollutants on activated carbon and membrane filtration of MICRODYN-NADIR has proven an alternative to the established activated carbon/precipitation/sand filtration process.Contamination of the environment by micro pollutants has clearly been proved by now. Due to the high concentration of microorganisms and the contamination by antibiotics coming from animal breeding, hospitals and ambulant applications, elimination of micro pollutants in biologically treated wastewater becomes more...
A new reactor for denitrification and micro-particle removal in recirculated aquaculture systems
A ‘membrane-denitrification’ reactor (MDR) was developed and tested in a semi-technical recirculation aquaculture system in comparison to a double – without MDR – as reference system. The MDR consisted of a reactor with an ultrafiltration membrane unit for removal of micro-particles (e.g. sludge flocs, bacteria and parasites). Specific carrier material provided surfaces for biofilm growth in a fluidized bed reactor with ethanol as carbon source for denitrification. The continuous motion of these carriers cleaned...
Development of a Cleaning Validation Method for MICRO® A07 Citric Acid Cleaner Using HPLC-CAD
AbstractA high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method with a Corona Charged Aerosol detector for the cleaning validation of MICRO* A07 Citric Acid Cleaner residue has been developed. The pooled average repeatability of 3 replicates at 6 concentration levels expressed as RSD was 1.3 % while the pooled average intermediate precision (intra-day repeatability in 3 days) of 3 replicates at 6 concentration levels was 2.4 %. Simulated maximum allowable carryover (MAC) was calculated by using 10 ppm of MICRO®...
Steel Fire Sprinkler Tank Inspection Case Study
These images show the steel fire sprinkler tank before any preparation work and then after preparation. The steel fire sprinkler tank was fully relined with Acothane DW. A Logistics company in Berkshire recently had an R.O.V Inspection carried out on their Fire Tank, we also provided them a sprinkler tank maintenance. The sprinkler tank inspections confirmed significant amounts of corrosion to numerous areas of the internal substrate. The overall size of the fire sprinkler tank is approximately 9.2m diameter x...
