Equipment
FT-IR (Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy)
The FT/IR-4200 was designed to provide operational features and sensitivity levels found only in more expensive instruments. The innovative technology incorporated in these instruments results in exceptionally high signal-to-noise ratio specifications. Designed for a wide range of critical research and development applications, each model is capable of measuring from the Near IR (15000 cm-1) to the Far IR (50 cm-1).

Abbe Refractometer
The high accuracy models are designed for use with monochromatic light sources with 598mm LED. A computer program(Windows-based)for conversion of scale readings to refractive index (RI) or Brix (Sugar %)is supplied with each instrument. With good temperature control and use of the micrometer Vemier Scale, an average accuracy of ±0.0002 RI(at 20 ℃) can be achieved across the specified measuring range. Temperature can be controlled by circulating water from 0 to 120℃ ; prism temperature can be read from the digital display on the instrument.

MOCON
MOCON AQUATRAN Model 1, a new, ultra high-barrier water vapor permeation test instrument. What makes this unit different from any other water vapor permeation test instrument on the market is that it offers significant improvement by offering ten times the measurement sensitivity.
The AQUATRAN Model 1 makes it possible to accurately measure water vapor transmission rates down to 0.0005 g/m2 per day under varying temperature conditions (conventional units typically only measure to 0.005 g/m2 per day.) This makes the AQUATRAN Model 1 ideally suited as a measurement instrument for new, commercial or developmental ultra high-barrier structures. These structures are being engineered to push the barrier envelope. Therefore, accurate and extremely sensitive instrumentation is necessary to build performance statistics.
