Now available for download at the Moore Industries website, the case study shows how the use of the TG200s helped Ashland Inc. simplify the upgrade process and take full advantage of the benefits offered by FOUNDATION™ fieldbus.
In October 2012, Ashland embarked on an upgrade of the FOUNDATION fieldbus system at their world-class 1,4-butanediol (BDO) plant, which produces an intermediate ingredient in common industrial and commercial products. The upgrade replaced a system of quick-disconnect connectors and disconnect switches that were inefficient and had become corroded over time.
Selecting TG200s had several benefits for Ashland. The fourth-generation device couplers have unique capabilities to solve the most common issues of segment termination and short circuit protection.

Each experiment can be run under different conditions and utilise a different set of reagents or monomers.
Incorporating a separate liquid handler and fraction collector, FlowSyn Auto-LF enables sample loop filling in preparation for the next experiment to take place before the current experiment has finished, thereby reducing overall reaction run times.
Additionally, the module has no injection ports to leak or block, and the fully integrated robust wash protocols minimise the risk of cross-contamination.

Lelystad, The Netherlands & Aston PA, USA -- The Octygen 0.50 ml screw cap tube available from Micronic sets a new standard for low temperature sample storage. In low temperature storage facilities the cost of freezer space is an important cost of operation both in terms of the number of freezers required and electricity costs.
The ultra-compact design of the Octygen tubes at just 25.6 mm tall to deliver 475 µl working volume uses only 60% of the space that competitive 0.50 ml 96-well format screw cap tubes use to store the same volume.
