Support Equipment

Laboratory support equipment are instruments that are used in scientific research and laboratory experiments to support the main process. Here are brief descriptions of some common laboratory support equipment:

Powder Presses: Powder presses are machines used to compact powders into specific shapes and sizes. They are commonly used in material science and engineering to make test samples or specimens. Powder presses work by applying pressure to a powder-filled die using a hydraulic or mechanical press.

Vacuum Pumps: Vacuum pumps are devices used to create a vacuum in a closed system. They are used in a wide range of laboratory applications such as vacuum filtration, distillation, and freeze-drying. Vacuum pumps work by removing gas molecules from a closed system, creating a partial vacuum that allows the system to function.

Proton Gas Systems: Proton gas systems are used in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to produce the magnetic field necessary for NMR experiments. The system typically includes a gas storage tank, a pressure regulator, and a flow controller to deliver the gas to the NMR magnet. Proton gas systems are typically used in research and analytical laboratories to study the structure and properties of molecules.

Vacuum Glove Boxes: Vacuum glove boxes are sealed enclosures that provide a controlled environment for handling sensitive materials. They allow users to manipulate objects inside the box through gloves while maintaining a vacuum or inert atmosphere. Vacuum glove boxes are commonly used in research and manufacturing settings for applications such as battery assembly, semiconductor processing, and handling air-sensitive materials. They typically feature a main chamber, an airlock for transferring items in and out, and a vacuum pump to maintain the desired atmosphere.

Disinfection systems: Disinfection systems are essential for eliminating harmful pathogens from various environments, ensuring cleanliness and safety. These systems range from autonomous disinfection robots to UV light and fogging systems, ozone generators, and electrostatic sprayers, each suited for specific applications. Proper selection based on space, pathogen type, frequency, and surface compatibility, along with training and precautions, is crucial. Incorporating disinfection systems into regular cleaning routines has become paramount, especially post-COVID-19, for maintaining public health and creating safer spaces.
