The Process of Inert Gas Blanketing

http://www.cambridge-sensotec.co.uk/blog/2016/06/27/process-inert-gas-blanketing/

Sensitive materials within pharmaceutical, chemical and the food industry may experience quality degradation if it comes in contact with oxygen, moisture or other contaminants. Inert gas blanketing is a process used to protect volatile, combustible or perishable products from undesirable reactions such as oxidation or explosion. Gases with non-reactive properties such as nitrogen, helium or argon are often used for this.
During the blanketing procedure, inert gas is introduced into a sealed compartment, chamber, furnace or tank where its purpose is to displace the oxygen. Oxygen analysis within such applications is imperative in order to safeguard against impurities.
Cambridge Sensotec’s Rapidox 1100 and Rapidox 2100 zirconia oxygen gas analysers are ideal for inert gas applications as these instruments can measure oxygen content at the lowest level in parts per million, ensuring that the inert environment is as pure as possible. By using the Rapidox gas analyser within the process, users can save on costly part rejects or failures and ensure safety during the manufacturing process.

Maintenance of SF6 Gas

april-newsletter-image-2Sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) gas is an arc quenching and cooling medium used in medium and high voltage electrical equipment as an electrical insulator. Under the Kyoto Protocol, SF6 has been classified as a greenhouse gas and restrictions are in place to limit the amount allowed to be released into the atmosphere.
Both manufacturers and the users of their equipment are responsible for the reduction in SF6 gas emissions. Organisations such as the International Electrochemical Commission (IEC) and the International Council on Large Electric Systems (CIGRE) provide guidance and regulatory information with regards to the handling of such a gas when it comes to maintenance.
When partial arcing or a failure occurs within electrical equipment, this can cause the creation of decomposition products such as sulphur dioxide and hydrogen fluoride. Analysis of SF6 gas is recommended as part of a regular condition maintenance schedule, this ensures that equipment and personnel are properly protected. Early identification of elevated decomposition products will help to eliminate power outages and failures, alongside unnecessary inspections.
In order to ensure that no emissions occur throughout the testing process, Cambridge Sensotec designed the Rapidox SF6 6100 Pump Back gas analyser. The instrument draws a sample of SF6 gas from the electrical equipment and analyses it in accordance with current IEC and CIGRE test configurations. It then pumps it back either automatically or manually, into the electrical equipment at pressure. Alternatively, the analyser can store the gas internally for proper disposal at a later time.
For further information about gas analysis applications or the Rapidox range of gas analysers, please contact us on +44 (0)1480 462142 or email info@cambridge-sensotec.co.uk. Additional information on SF6 gas analysis can be found at www.sf6.co.uk.

What is Additive Manufacturing?
















Additive Manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, refers to a manufacturing process, which creates 3D objects by adding multiple layers of material to form components, parts or products. There are various methods of AM, which use a variety of materials such as plastics, glass, ceramics and metal.

Selective laser sintering (SLS) or selective laser melting (SLM) are processes which can be used with a high-powered laser to form 3D objects from metal powders, such as titanium, aluminium, stainless steel and others. SLS fuses metal powder together on a molecular level, allowing for the porosity and other properties of the finished object to be customised, whereas SLM melts the powder together to form the 3D object.

There are many advantages of opting for AM over conventional manufacturing processes. 3D objects can be formed in such a way that traditional manufacturing processes cannot achieve. For example the creation of unique, intricate and sometimes miniature components is easily achieved, for a multitude of applications including industrial, medical, automotive and aerospace to name a few.

The AM process of SLS and SLM requires an inert atmosphere to be used within the laser forming chamber for two reasons; to reduce oxidisation and minimise any impairment of component quality, and to eliminate any chance of the powdered metal igniting together with the presence of any oxygen.

Cambridge Sensotec has been working with leading AM machine manufacturers for many years to supply an extremely reliable oxygen analysis solution. The Rapidox 2100 oxygen analyser has proven to be a reliable instrument for providing the low ppm analysis required for such an application.
