The automation of Clay Fraction analysis (ISO 11277) 12 February 2007
In Europe, the determination of the clay fraction or "LUTUM" (Method of Robinson-Kahn, ISO11277) is used to characterize soil for construction works or to determine the capacity of soil to transport pollution.
A common issue with on-line water monitoring optical systems is the long term drifting of the signal due to deposits created in the flow cell. Many diverse cleaning procedures were developed by the producers of on-line process photometers to suppress this phenomenon, for instance by ultra-sonic cleaning or cleaning with compressed air. Both approaches however didn't perform perfectly in the removal of sample specific deposits from the flow cell and cannot be used for low absorption measurements.
In lactating diary cows, ketosis could occur because of a deficiency in energy rich food. In case of ketosis, abnormal levels of Acetone, Aceto-Acetate and beta-HydroxyButyric Acid (3-HBA) can be found. The cow itself does not show illness in this stage. It is very important to diagnose a ketosis as the milk production could be negatively influenced by this disease. In order to check for this disease by the normal NIR analysis of the milk, a suitable calibration for the NIR system has to be performed. Therefore Skalar developed in cooperation with the Milk Control Station Nederland in Zutphen, The Netherlands, a suitable analyzer for the analyses of Acetone and 3-HBA in milk.
One of the world leaders for zinc production has implemented several Skalar on-line analyzers during the last couple of years for the continuous monitoring of the zinc sulfate production.
