Aumund equipment for six new clinker production lines in Beni Suef/Egypt

In June 2016, Sinoma International Engineering announced that its subsidiary, the Chengdu Design & Research Institute of the Building Materials I­ndustry (CDI) signed a contract with the Egyptian government to build six clinker production lines of 6000 t/d each, in Beni Suef. In January 2017 Aumund Fördertechnik GmbH, in close cooperation with its Chinese subsidiary Aumund Beijing, received the order to supply the clinker conveying equipment for the project. Egypt, with a capacity of 70 million t, is one of the world’s biggest producers of...

Portable emission FTIR spectrometer for Thermal Infrared (TIR) remote and proximal sensing applications

D&P Instruments’ portable FTIR spectrometer (Model 102), also known as the micro FTIR among the scientific community, is a passive-mode FTIR spectrometer, which measures the radiation emitted by the object itself. Thus, it serves as the ideal instrument for thermal infrared (TIR) remote sensing applications, where non-destructive testing is mandatory or where spectral field measurements (validation/calibration) have to comply with the requirements necessary for a quantitative comparison with emission spectra obtained via an air- or spaceborne TIR remote sensor. It’s also the product of choice for gas detection and analyses, as the FTIR-technique allows for very high spectral resolution. The compact and portable micro FTIR is ideally suited for outdoor use and incorporates a thermally stabilized interferometer, which is available with either a liquid nitrogen or a stirling cooled dual InSb/MCT detector. This passive mode FTIR spectrometer provides the user with emission radiance spectra (which can be transformed to emissivity/temperature via TES) ranging from 2 μm to 16 μm with a spectral resolution of 4 cm-1.
