Introduction to Thermal Analysis
Thermal analysis covers a group of techniques allowing properties of a sample to be investigated as a function of temperature and/or time. The applied temperature system consists of a sequence of segments where the sample is heated or cooled at a constant rate or held at a constant temperature. In many experiments the atmosphere also plays an important role, the most common atmospheric conditions include inert and oxidizing gases.
Congratulations and many thanks to Stanley Black & Decker on the successful launch of their rocket April 7th, 2018! Helping our customers to reach their goals is something we take pride in at Franklin Fibre-Lamitex Corp., and receiving videos of our products in motion is always a welcome bonus.
Lamitex ® industrial composites supply a wide range of insulation duties for common electrical, heat exchange, and cryogenic industries. However, they are not often thought of for their ability to insulate against common radiation emitted by nuclear reactors and medical machines. Typically concrete, lead, steel and ceramic are the common materials for nuclear devices and nuclear waste disposal facilities. The areas of the facilities that consist of these materials are often seen as heavy and poor in corrosion resistance & mechanical properties. We aim to change that by offering composites that can reduce the weight of insulation while maintaining higher mechanicals when exposed to γ (gamma) radiation. All tests referenced in this blog were conducted using 60Co, which is a synthetic radioactive isotope commonly used in the medical field as a treatment for cancer.
