On a visit to the college, Keeler learned of the great work carried out by the undergraduate students and faculty staff in the Dharavi slum of Mumbai.  The slum has a population of over 1 million and has a tremendous need for assistance in all areas of healthcare.

The PSL Slit Lamp will complement other portable devices used by the College in this outreach programme and will also be in great demand in their busy paediatric clinic run by Dr. Neepa Thacker Dave.

EasiDrive Valve Actuators Ideal for Power Industry

Smith Flow Control has an affordable tool for companies in the power industry to safely and economically control valve operations. The EasiDrive portable valve actuator securely operates valves in power plants. One operator can efficiently operate multiple valves with a single tool while reducing fatigue and injury risk. The tool is especially effective on valves that require a high number of turns or are otherwise difficult to operate.

“Power industry operators can strain themselves while manually operating valves and we introduced the EasiDrive System as a solution to their problem,” Mike Fynes, Sales and Marketing Director at Smith Flow Control comments. “It is time consuming to open and close large valves that are not actuated. Two operators can spend almost 20 minutes working together to open just one gate valve. By using the EasiDrive system, one operator can open the valve in a few minutes, making it almost effortless.”

EasiDrive is a lightweight, portable and adaptable pneumatic tool.  The tool’s custom engineered reaction device protects the user from the “kick” normally associated with other torque tools, eliminating the possibility of any injury associated with its operation

EasiDrive also features a variable output torque, controlled by a choice of limited pre-set Filter Regulator (FRL) packs, which prevents excessive torque being applied and ensures proper and safe operation of the valve.

New High-Throughput Spectrometers from Ocean Optics

Ventana’s optical design and components maximise throughput for superior sensitivity

Ocean Optics has expanded its Elite Series of high-performance modular spectrometers (www.elitespectrometers.com) with the introduction of the Ventana line of high throughput spectrometers. Ventana spectrometers combine an optical bench configuration with very high collection efficiency and a high-efficiency volume phase holographic (VPH) grating to provide unprecedented throughput and sensitivity for low light level applications. Three preconfigured Ventana spectrometers are available: 532 nm and 785 nm excitation wavelength Raman models, and a visible to near-IR model for general purpose fluorescence applications.

With its high sensitivity performance and compact size, Ventana is ideal for academic and corporate research, OEMs and system integrators seeking a cost-effective alternative to traditional integrated systems. It is well suited for applications in life sciences, pharmaceuticals, materials analysis and more.

The 785 nm Ventana system has a spectral range of 250-2000 cm-1 and resolution of 10 cm-1; the 532 nm version covers 35-4300 cm-1 with 20 cm-1 resolution. The VIS-NIR Ventana spectrometer is configured for fluorescence measurements from 430-1100 nm with a resolution of 4.0 nm (FWHM). Also, the 785 nm Raman Ventana spectrometer can be configured with an integrated laser with free space collection optics for the highest throughput possible. Additionally, complete Raman sampling systems including laser, probe and software are available.

Fireray Beam Smoke Detectors Protect Dubai International Airport’s New A380 Concourse

The recently opened new Concourse A of Dubai International Airport has had 265 Fireray end to end infrared beam smoke detectors installed as part of its fire protection system. There are now a total of 860 Fireray products installed throughout the airport’s four terminals, which feature exactly the kind of large, high-ceilinged indoor areas that the range is designed to protect.

The new concourse is the first in the world built to accommodate the giant Airbus A380, resulting in a public space of exceptional size: 528,000 sq m spread across 11 floors, and the capacity to handle 15 million passengers a year. The lounges span the entire length of the concourse, making them the largest in the world, and feature high ceilings, sweeping architectural design and modern aesthetics throughout. The Fireray’s ability to detect smoke over a 100m path between the transmitter and receiver heads, coupled with its minimalist visual impact and easy installation made it an ideal choice to the protect the state-of-the-art facility.

The first Fireray products were installed in the airport 15 years ago, and have suited the environment and served their purpose so well that they have been specified again and again for refits, renovations and new additional developments. The latest installation of 265 Fireray end to end units was supplied by Jamal al Majid, local Dubai agent for Edwards.

SABIC Europe Uses Netherlocks Power Wrench to Save Time and Effort

Portable device easily operates manually operated valves

SABIC, the major plastics, chemicals and innovative plastics producer in Europe, has been using the Netherlocks Power Wrench as an effective and efficient alternative to multiple actuators for operating its hand wheel valves. The two companies have also cooperated to produce a video about how it can be used to save time, effort and cost:

Using pneumatic pressure (4-8 bar) the Atex-certified Power Wrench is a mobile tool for operating any size of handwheel valve, with up to 515 Nm of torque available to the user with a twist of the throttle – making light work of even the heaviest handwheels. “It really allows me to do my job faster and more easily – which is great because I’m not that young any more!” explained G. Knepper (Dayshift Operator, HDPE Polymers – Production) of SABIC Europe B.V.

Weighing only 10.2 kg, Netherlocks has designed the Power Wrench to be easily portable and operable by anyone, and has integrated, enforced ‘2-hands’ operation for added safety.

J. Habets (Senior Dayshift Operator, HDPE Polymers – Production) of SABIC Europe commented: “SABIC’s relationship with Netherlocks is very good. The people there are very cooperative and always look for a suitable solution to the various valve safety issues we experience. The Power Wrench is a great device for us, because we can open and close our manually operated valves much more quickly and safely.”
