MobileGuard Gas Detection

Teco Peoples Gas hits the road in one of their new methane detection vehicles. These vehicles are going to be game changers for Peoples Gas. The Ford Escapes are outfitted with MobileGuard, a cutting-edge, laser-based analyzer that uses special software and windspeed calculations to pinpoint natural gas leaks by locating methane emissions. The sensitive sensors can detect with ultra-high precision – parts per billion, as compared with our handheld leak detection equipment which detects parts per million. That means they will detect methane emissions that you can’t smell and would otherwise go unnoticed. And, the system is smart enough to know if the methane detected is from natural gas or other sources like biogas from sewers.

International Day of Light

The International Day of Light is a global initiative highlighting to the the citizens of the world the importance of light and light-based technologies in their lives, for their futures, and for the development of Society.

Barnett-Technical Services supports the International Day of Light and its annual celebration on May 16th.

GGPF Short Course “Microscopy of Polymers”

We will be demonstrating the Microsupport Axis Pro micromanipulator at the Golden Gate Polymer Forum Two-Day Short Course: Microscopy of Polymers”  on May 7 and 8, 2019

This two-day day short course is presented by a recognized expert on the Microscopy of Polymers with applications in medical devices and pharmaceuticals. Attendees will gain an understanding of the basic principles of the diverse range of microscopy techniques, including state-of-the-art and classic knowledge. Materials that will be addressed include polyurethanes, block-copolymers, hydrogels, polyethylenes, fluoropolymers, and polymer-like materials including pyrolytic carbon and biologicals. Thisshort course will include case studies where a variety of microscopy instruments and characterization techniques were utilized to solve real problems in R&D, quality assessment and control, and patent litigation.

This course will benefit engineers and scientists who wish to understand the broad range of imaging instruments that can be applied to polymer characterization, includingespecially those working with biomedical devices and pharmaceuticals. The goal will be to provide up-to-date and “classic” knowledge regarding these techniques, and how they may be applied to the solution of practical problems.
