Heating And Cooling A Laboratory: Important Considerations For Equipment And Design
ASHRAE Standard 55-2004 determines the temperature, humidity and airflow which the average worker is comfortable; and though people in many industries have the luxury of dressing for the seasons, laboratory workers are usually burdened with an extra layer or two of protective garb. So, room atmosphere considerations also need to take into account that many laboratories have their own requirements as to temperature, humidity and airflow (ventilation). All of this adds up to a laboratory having very strict conditions of the facility’s internal air quality. By Brian Garrett, LEED Green Associate, Product Specialist, Labconco Corporation
WHITE PAPERS & CASE STUDIES
Fluid Bed System Triples Batch Sizes for Laboratorios Normon while Reducing Costs
With the aim of reducing costs, Normon planned to significantly increase its batch sizes for certain products. The manufacturer needed to pay close attention to the high quality and safety standards and economic aspects, as well as flexible production sizes and times.
Precise Filling and Inspection Equipment Fighting Against Diabetes Mellitus
Diabetes mellitus is the first non-infectious disease that has taken on the magnitude of a pandemic. For diabetes patients, the independent administration of insulin is now a lot easier. Due to their shape, the pens can not only be transported more conveniently, they can also be applied “en route” without attracting attention.
Major Nutritional Supplement Manufacturer Increases Production With New Mixing And Blending System
A major nutritional supplement manufacturer needed to address the need for greater efficacy and additional capacity in the production of various products. Custom Powder Systems manufactured a 5000 Liter blender that fits and can be loaded and discharged within their limited manufacturing space and low ceiling heights.
Interpreting The Results After A Chemical Decontamination Cycle Performed With Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide
The unexpected growth of a biological indicator (BI) at the end of a decontamination cycle is certainly an undesirable and problematic event. What can and should be done at this point?
The Purpose And Application Of ISO 21501-4
ISO 21501 is titled “Determination of particle size distribution – Single particle light interaction methods” and consists of 4 parts. Part 4: Light scattering airborne particle counter for clean spaces applies to handheld, portable and remote airborne particle counters used in cleanrooms.
Rouge & Biofilm: Compounding Cleaning Challenges
Rouge may facilitate the development of more tenacious biofilms. Both rouge and biofilm represent cleaning and decontamination challenges to manufacturers. By Michael Gietl and Paul Lopolito
