Metal Casting Technologies : September 2005
New dry vacuum pump for industrial processes BOC Edwards has extended its range of high speed, high capacity dry vacuum pumps with the launch of the IDX1000. Based on their third generation double-ended screw technology, the pump has been designed to provide reliable operation and low cost of ownership, in harsh industrial applications such as metallurgy and roll coating. Designed as a 'dry' system, the IDX1000 has no lubricants under vacuum. This means there is no possibility of process contamination which can occur both within the oil -- which affects the performance of the pump -- or in some extreme cases, the final product. IDX1000 reduces environmental impact, as regular replacement of contaminated oil is not required -- eliminating the need to dispose of oil in line with, often costly, environmental guidelines.. The IDX1000's, 950m3/ hr. capacity combined with its dust handling capabilities are ideal for harsh industrial applications. On particularly dusty applications a range of filter options are available to compliment main system separation.

The instrument may also be run in a manual mode to allow the operator to select specific locations of analytical interest. The Cameca SX50 is a valuable and an ideal instrument for use in the quantitative examination of minute constituents. Characteristic x-rays, together with other radiations, are generated from elements in the specimen when incident electrons bombarding the specimen are of sufficient energy. The intensity of the x-rays generated is proportional to the concentration of the element. This enables the elements to be easily identified and their concentrations determined by comparison with standard reference materials. Quantitative and qualitative analysis of metals, semi- conductors, minerals and a wide range of other materials is routinely carried out. Quantification, detection and non-destructive analysis of areas on a flat and polished surface of areas as small as 1-3μm2, for almost all of the elements from boron down in the periodic table. Compositional elemental x-ray maps and electron images may be acquired, stored and processed to produce phase maps. Data control is facilitated interactively and via the local network, where data and image files may be stored for future retrieval. Once set up the SX50 may be used in an unattended mode, thereby significantly reducing costs to external customers.
