The buoyancy correction is a correction to determine the true mass of an object on a balance if not in vacuum. A rock weighs less under water, and the same goes for weights in air compared to vacuum. When performing buoyancy correction for nanoflow measurement, the buoyancy correction becomes extra complicated, as effects of offset masses, [...]
Within MeDD various primary standards are developed for the calibration of infusion devices and flow meters. These standards, or calibration facilities, have been developed for liquid flow rates at ambient pressure and temperature. The flow rate range per standard varies somewhat; the combined flow rate range is between 1 nl/min up to 10 ml/min. Goal [...]
How would you like if your new syringe pump pumps like this? Here a 60 ml syringe with a rubber based plunger sealing is set to pump 15 ml/h. It takes 4 hours to empty the syringe. The set-up is degassed and has no compliance in the tubing, which otherwise would dampen the flow pulsations. [...]
Calibration and use of syringe pumps, Elsa Batista, Nelson Almeida, Eduarda Filipe, Anselmo Costa, in proceedings of 'Congrès international de métrologie', Paris, France, October 2013. Abstract. There are several types of infusion instruments used for drug delivery, e.g. syringe pumps and infusion pumps, with different capacities according to their use and applied therapeutic. In order to [...]
DTI has evaluated the effectiveness of the oil based evaporation cover to lower than 5000 times compared to uncovered. At this evaporation rate it would take thousands of year for a simple glass of water to evaporate. But the twist is that it actually would gain in weight instead, from the amount of dust and [...]
