Below is a list of applications for
Myron L® instruments.
Rinse Tank Controls: Proper rinsing is one of the most important
steps in quality manufacturing or metal finishing. Plenty of low cost, good
quality water for rinsing has been available in the past, so rinse water
conservation has been largely ignored.
Cooling Towers share two major water related problems: deposits and
corrosion. As steam is generated by a boiler or water evaporating
from a cooling tower, dissolved minerals are left behind, increasing
the concentration of these minerals.
Board Cleanliness Testing:
Contamination of circuit boards can bring
about severe degradation of insulation resistance and dielectric strength.
Cleanliness of completed circuit boards is, therefore, of vital interest.
Years ago, high purity water was used only in
limited applications. Today, deionized (Dl) water has become an essential
ingredient in hundreds of applications including: medical, laboratory,
pharmaceutical, cosmetics, electronics manufacturing, food processing, plating,
countless industrial processes, and even the final rinse at the local car wash.
the water in our lakes, rivers, and streams clean requires
monitoring of water quality at many points as it gradually makes its
way from its source to our oceans.
Accurate fountain (dampening) solution
concentration control is essential for consistent, high-quality results in
lithography. Low concentration can cause drying on the non-image area of the
plate resulting in tinting, scumming, blanket piling, etc.
Controlling dialysate quality is critically important to hemodialysis patient health. Complications as minor as nausea and fatigue or as severe as metabolic acidosis and sepsis can result if dialysate composition is incorrect.
Modern growing practices include scientific evaluations of soil,
water, fertilizers, diseases, etc. While some tests are best
performed by a laboratory, others can be easily conducted on
location, saving time and money.
Hydroponics: The nutrient solution and its management are the
cornerstone for a successful hydroponics system. The function of a hydroponics
nutrient solution is to supply the plant roots with water, oxygen and essential
mineral elements in soluble form.
ORP is a convenient measure of
the oxidizer’s or reducer’s ability to perform a chemical task. ORP
is not only valid over a wide pH range, but it is also a rugged
electrochemical test, which can easily be accomplished using in-line
and handheld instrumentation.
Pool & Spa:
Anyone and everyone who is
responsible for operating and maintaining a swimming pool or spa has
to test, monitor, and control complex, interdependent chemical
factors that affect the quality of water bathers are immersed in.
Additionally, aquatic facilities operators must be familiar with all
laws, regulations, and guidelines governing what these parameters
Osmosis is the phenomenon of
lower dissolved solids in water passing through a semi-permeable
membrane into higher dissolved solids water until a near equilibrium
Solutions and Buffers:
All Myron L® handheld
instruments are factory calibrated with NIST traceable Standard
Solutions having specific conductivity/ppm values. Myron L®
Company Standard Solutions are made under strictly controlled
conditions using reagent grade salts.
The textile manufacturing
industry encompasses many and diverse processes that rely heavily on
the use of water, energy, chemicals, and other resources. Wet
spinning, sizing, desizing, scouring, bleaching, mercerization,
dyeing and printing are just a few.
