Expanded humidity measurement capabilities

Monitoring and control of humidity are essential requirements in a variety of Europe’s manufacturing industries. For example, humidity affects pharmaceutical and biochemical product quality and storage lifetimes. Most humidity sensors are based on capacitance measurement technologies that exhibit measurement drift, so regular c...

Validating ion engines for interplanetary travel

Space exploration has provided insights into the formation of the solar system and processes underway on Earth. Missions to Venus, for example, have informed us on the greenhouse effect and the dangers of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). Ion engines, a form of electric propulsion, may be preferable to chemical rockets for such missi...

Harmonising pre-pack verification tests

Many products are generated by continuous manufacturing processes. Ensuring that packs conform to producer’s or customer’s requirements relies on verifying the contents of products against specification. This is performed by automatic weighing instruments without human intervention. Products are sent along constantly moving con...

Enforcing vehicle weight restrictions

Damage to rural bridges throughout the EU is being caused by lorries carrying heavy loads that may far exceed their design criteria. For example, in Estonia there is increasing concern over damage to the road infrastructure due to heavy lorries carrying felled trees from forests to saw-mills on country roads. Laws are in force ...

X-ray measurement smooths insulin flow

In Europe, there are 60 million diabetics requiring insulin injections several times a day using single use needles. Making frequent injections is painful, but discomfort can be reduced by using smaller needles with internal dimensions close to the diameter of a human hair. Ensuring an even insulin flow through the needle relie...
