K-Patents has released a new application note on Polyethylene Fiber Antistatic Agent. Polyethylene fiber is known for its high strength and durability features. The material is used in a variety of applications, e.g., Tyvek® HouseWrap, vehicle covers, envelopes, medical and industrial packaging, and as protective apparel. The sheet is made by spinning extremely fine high-density polyethylene fibers fused together to produce a strong uniform web. Inside the sheet antistatic agent is applied. Before the antistatic agent is applied, it must be diluted to 1.5 or 2.5 solution. The required solution concentration is controlled using K-Patents Sanitary Compact Refractometer PR-23-AC

K-Patents has released a new application note on Tomato Ketchup and Sauces from Tomato Concentrate Plant. Tomato ketchup/sauce is one of the most commonly used condiments. The recipe, viscosity and solids content of sauces and ketchups vary widely and a tomato sauce and ketchup can be based on whole peeled tomatoes, but more typically they are made from tomato concentrate. Tomato paste or puree from tomato concentrator is mixed and diluted with water to the proper brix. After that some sugar/sweetener, salt and preservatives are added to the mixture according to the recipe. During the ketchup preparation process it is very important to constantly monitor and control the level of product concentration which has an impact on ketchup consistency.

K-Patents has released a new application note on Total Organic Carbon (TOC) Content Monitoring in Effluent. Excess organics, or Total Organic Carbon Content (TOC), e.g. alcohols, proteins, sugars, fats, etc. in various wastewater streams in the corn sweetener and beer brewing industries can incur fines and penalties. In severe cases the plant can even be closed.As these effluent streams typically contain high levels of TOC (up to 10,000 PPM) the Refractive Index technique has proven to be a very successful measurement method for this purpose. K-Patents Teflon Body Refractometer PR-23-M provides reliable measurement for alarming of incoming dissolved solids (indication of high organics). Wastewater treatment plant knows incoming TOC and can keep treatment process in proper operation and compliance.

K-Patents has released a new application note on Ammonia Removal in Water Treatment. Ammonia can be present in underground water as an impurity. It is undesirable in water because ultimately it gets converted into nitrites and nitrates which cause lack of vitamin and if combined with other components can cause cancer. Moreover, elevated ammonia concentration can create favourable conditions for intensive growth of aquatic organisms, including algae, which leads to deterioration of commodity water quality. Ammonia is stripped away from the process by turning it into ammonium sulfate. K-Patents refractometer PR-23-M is measuring the ammonium sulfate concentration in-line. If the value is correct, ammonium sulfate can be stored for further use, if not, the product is further recycled.
