A chemical reaction is the last concept to come to mind when talking about vehicle airbags. Do you know how an airbag is deployed? Of course, you do! When a vehicle crashes a sensor releases a vehicle’s safety airbags, safely keeping occupants from harm and cushioning the blow. But, do you know that a chemical reaction is to thank for being able to quickly and safely release a vehicle supplementary restraint system (SRS). Compressed gas
How to Generate Nitrogen for Industrial Applications? Nitrogen gas makes 78% of the Earth’s atmosphere and one of the most abundant compounds available in the air. Industries such as food and drug manufacturing require the use of nitrogen as part of their process. But how is nitrogen gas generated, purified and used? What is Nitrogen Gas?

How to Keep Your Acrylic Glove Box Surface Clean Acrylic is a light-weight, durable, and cost-effective plastic used in the construction of controlled atmosphere glove boxes. As part of every laboratory cleaning and disinfecting checklist should include cleaning the outside surface of your acrylic glove box. Cleaning the surface helps prevent the acrylic from becoming cloudy and collecting dust. Before you pull out your Windex bottle it is important to know that acrylic can be
What is a particle counter and how does it work? Clean room facilities are crucial in the development and manufacturing of semiconductor and pharmaceutical products, biotechnology, and other fields that are very sensitive to environmental contamination. Designed to maintain an extremely low level of airborne particles, clean rooms can be classified into 9 classes determined by the number of particles per cubic meter. Let’s take an ISO 9 classification for example. There are around 35,000,000
