Bioreactors are vessels or tanks in which whole cells or cell-free enzymes transform raw materials into biochemical products and/or less undesirable by-products. The microbial cell itself is a miniature bioreactor; other examples include shake flasks, Petri dishes, and industrial fermentors. Diagnostic products based on enzymatic reactions, farm silos for silage fermentations, bread pans with fermenting yeast, and the soil in a Kansas wheat field may also be viewed as bioreactors. While the bioreactor may be simple or highly instrumented, the important consideration is the ability to produce the desired product or result. The bioreactor is designed and operated to provide the environment for product formation selected by the scientist, baker, or winemaker. It is the heart of many biotechnological systems that are used for agricultural, environmental, industrial, and medical applications. Industrial bioreactors may be operated as batch reactors or continuously, aerobically or anaerobically, and with pure or mixed cultures. In many bioreactors, three phases (gas, liquid, and solid) are present and mass transfer is an important consideration. Biofilms and immobilized cells can be used to retain microbial biomass in a flow bioreactor. Sensors, instrumentation, and control systems are essential for industrial bioreactors.
HPV is well recognized as a bio-decontamination agent due to its broad biological efficacy and can quickly deactivate microorganisms much more effectively than traditional decontamination methods such as formaldehyde. HPV has been tested on many individual microorganisms and classes of organisms successfully and has excellent material compatibility. HPV technology enables clients to leave computer equipment or any other devices in the room during the bio-decontamination process, unlike with other disinfection regimes, which can cause equipment damage. HPV decontamination systems operate at room temperature with relative humidity, without the need for significantly reduced humidity, unlike with traditional systems.
A bathroom exhaust fan is a type of fan driven by the motor to change airflow and it is commonly used to circulate air in a bathroom.
An auxiliary power unit, also known as (APU), is a device on a vehicle or aircraft that provides energy for functions other than propulsion. They are employed in aircraft, ships, and some land vehicles to perform tasks such as starting main engines, heating motor blocks, and charging batteries. The devices supply energy in electric, pneumatic, or hydraulic form.
In aircraft, the elements assist in starting the primary engine. They generate electrical power in planes during pre-flight checks and energize cabin amenities while engines are off. Furthermore, the mechanism activates accessories in vehicles when it is idle. Long-haul trucking systems rely on the instruments for saving fuel and reducing air pollution caused by idling.
An autonomous mobile robot (AMR) is a robot that performs behaviors or tasks with a high degree of autonomy. The AMR relies on autonomous navigation where no wires, tape, GPS or other navigation markers are required. Its laser guidance system assures precise navigation, obstacle avoidance and human safety. The drive-around mapping with laptop adjustments enables fast and easy route updates and additions.
The demands placed on the functionality of autonomous robotic systems are significantly higher compared to conventional industrial robots. The aim is that mobile systems operate autonomously in unknown and dynamic environments to fulfill their assigned tasks. For this purpose, it is essential to explore and model the environment in a suitable way. The information gathered by sensors has to be combined to allow for an accurate positioning. In addition, the perceived surroundings have to be consolidated in an exact map representation. Having acquired this knowledge, the robot is able to plan an optimal collision-free path to a given goal and to perform complex handling tasks.
A balancing machine is a measuring tool used for balancing rotating machine parts such as rotors for electric motors, fans, turbines, disc brakes, disc drives, propellers and pumps. The machine usually consists of two rigid pedestals, with suspension and bearings on top supporting a mounting platform. The unit under test is bolted to the platform and is rotated either with a belt-, air-, or end-drive. As the part is rotated, the vibration in the suspension is detected with sensors and that information is used to determine the amount of unbalance in the part. Along with phase information, the machine can determine how much and where to add or remove weights to balance the part.
The Automatic Positioning Balancing Machine adds Automatic Positioning functional to the Balancing Machine, which can achieve accurate automatic will automatic stop after measurement is qualified, otherwise it will stop at the unbalance point, avoid manual looking for angles, thereby improve working efficiency.
Automated Liquid Handlers is used in automation of Pharmaceutical or biochemical laboratories. It is a robot that dispenses a selected quantity of reagent, samples or other liquid to a designated container.
Reducing processing time, decreasing sample contamination, and increasing accuracy in bioassays is possible with Automated Liquid Handler. These systems release researchers from long, repetitive, laborious tasks, and free up time for other assays, lab reports and other lab duties. Robotic arms distribute accurate measurements of liquids to vessels, such as microtiter plates and change out plates or tubes, thus streamlining workflow.
While sprayers were once a niche product, today sprayers have become an essential piece of farm equipment for effective crop production. By properly applying chemicals to control weeds, insects, and diseases, you give your crop the best chance for high yields. The uptick in self-propelled sprayer ownership started in 2005 when there was an increase in Asian soybean rust and farmers needed to have a sprayer available to make timely fungicide applications. Guidance systems and advanced controls have also made sprayers much easier to operate, contributing to the acceleration of on-farm sprayers.
Smart homes & buildings comprises major building systems on a common network, and shares information as well as functionality between systems to increase energy efficiency and operational effectiveness.
Small Arms and Light Weapons generally known as SALW are used in illegal or prohibited weapon control protocols. It denotes two different classes of these weapons; that include small arms and light weapons.
