Ultimate Guide to the Best Calorimeters

Testing heat can be dangerous. It can also be one of the best ways for students to gain insight into the thermal processes and properties of the world around them. And naturally, laboratories often need to measure the thermal properties of a substance. Whether for routine testing, educational interests, or for scientific pursuits, a good calorimeter is a staple of many lab environments. But what …

Helpful Guide to Choosing the Best Spectrometer

Testing light doesn’t have to be hard. Spectrometers used to be a sophisticated, highly specialized lab equipment. Getting test results basically meant you’d be mailing in samples to a lab before an extended wait for the results. But miniature spectrometers make it possible to do spectroscopy right next to your sample, giving you results on-site in seconds. Choosing a Spectrometer Choosing a spectrometer is about …

Helpful Guide to the Best Dissolved Oxygen Sensors

Running a dissolved oxygen test can be easy. And that’s good given how critically necessary these tests are for any variety of circumstances. Water quality issues can lead to corrosion, biological disasters within an ecosystem, water treatment mismanagement, and much worse. In short, a dissolved oxygen sensor is there to help measure water quality relative to the proportion of dissolved oxygen in the sample. When …

Guide to the Best Turbidity Meter

Turbidity is a measure of cloudiness within water. When tiny particles become suspended within water, the result is turbidity. The offending substances might be minerals, oils, bacteria, algae, or any other number of things. With the aid of an optical measurement, turbidity meters help indicate precisely how many suspended particles are present. Light is shined through your sample, and then carefully measured to quantify the …

Taking a Look at the Best Hydraulic Crimping Tools

For smaller jobs, it’s not that hard to crimp wires and butt connections by hand. When you’re only trying to take on a fistful of common wires, the standard handheld crimping tools you’ll find at any hardware store can probably handle the job. But when you’re dealing with larger wires or more of them, you’re going to want bigger and better tools more equal to …
