Kendal, UK -- Brewer and drink packaging company Thomas Hardy Kendal Ltd has installed a KROHNE OPTIMASS 1000 Coriolis Mass flowmeter.
The instrument has enabled the company to overcome problems encountered in the measurement of an ingredient used in products it manufactures for a new contract.
Before winning the new contract, Thomas Hardy Kendal used an electromagnetic flowmeter to measure various ingredients used to make drinks. However, the new product range uses a deionised sweetener ingredient which it found could not be measured using this technology.
The company needed to rapidly find a way of measuring the deionised sweetener, as well as numerous other ingredients that vary in viscosity and temperature, to ensure it could manufacture the products.
KROHNE was able to provide a solution for Thomas Hardy Kendal. By measuring Mass flow its OPTIMASS flowmeter is capable of accurately measuring deionised materials as well as the other ingredients used.

CARY NC, USA (October 10, 2007) – MTS Systems Corp., Sensors Division is providing the R-Series SSI encoder position sensor to its parent company MTS Systems for the ISTIR Advanced Friction Stir Welding development system, the first fully instrumented friction stir welding system capable of performing load-controlled welds along three independent axes.
It has reliably produced welds with double curvature, joined materials less than 1mm and up to 30 mm thick, and joined together materials that vary in thickness.
“By using MTS Temposonics® sensors in these machines, we ensure that our customers get a much more accurate machine that’s very repeatable,” said John Meyer, Program Manager, MTS Systems. “We also don’t need to worry about the calibration of the sensors, which saves us time in assembly and our customers’ time in maintenance and upkeep. The Temposonics SSI sensors are very stable.”
A solid-state welding process, friction stir welding is a combination of extruding and forging and is not actually a true welding process. The method was not created specifically for aluminum but is well-suited for it.

CROISSY-BEAUBOURG, FRANCE -- The ADAMANT IR camera from Cedip Infrared Systems is a compact, yet powerful thermal surveillance system designed for a wide range of demanding applications.
The new system features a high performance 640x512 MCT 15 micron pitch focal plane array and three field of view optic packaged in a fully mil-spec, marine qualified enclosure weighing only 9 kg.
The triple field of view lens features a wide 21.7° x 17.5° FOV, a medium range 6.9°x 5.5° FOV and a narrow 1.7° x 1.4° FOV enabling detection of a tank sized target at 16 Km.
ADAMANT is a high performance thermal surveillance system designed by Cedip Infrared Systems for fixed position surveillance, passive observation, detection and recognition of targets by day and nights, even in bad weather conditions.
Compact, weatherproof design and new diagnostic software make maintaining the ADAMANT IR camera easy and quick. The system is ideal for waterway surveillance, long range reconnaissance, homeland security monitoring of large area public infrastructure and military range tracking applications.
Drawing upon considerable experience in developing powerful, yet robust thermal surveillance systems - Cedip Infrared Systems have introduced a host of useful new features into the ADAMANT IR camera. Unmatched image quality is provided by powerful, high throughput optics and proprietary video processing technology that improves the definition of images.
ADAMANT can be delivered with Ethernet or Optical fibre output allowing remote control and video display over long distances. For OEM integrators, ADAMANT is also available as a core engine package, without the enclosure and the front window.
