We provide operational solutions
Our expertise includes technological process surveys, and if necessary numerical simulations.
The goal is to answer simple questions:
How does the material really behave inline?
What is the real variability from one part to another?
Can we detect a signature of an anomaly?
Is it cost effective to deploy an acquisition or control system?
Once the doubts about feasibility is raised, the industrial equipment project can start.
These projects are typically conducted in three phases:
Instrumentation and operational validation
Deployment of a functional solution
Training, maintenance and technical assistance
We have the skills to interface any measurement and control systems (digital communication, dedicated software).
Listening to our customers, we carry out specific operational developments with great responsiveness.
Our external advices are often welcomed.
Testing Benches, Material Oriented characterization systems (thermal conductivity, reactivity)
Software measurement, operation, simulation
Processes or reactor control units
New example : Multiphysic reactive characterization cell. The HFC-200 cell supplied in Metravib catalog provide in one trial dynamic mechanical properties (viscosity and stiffness) coupled with thermokinetic data.
This is an ideal tool for characterization of reactive materials and measurement of key points (gelation, cure level at gel point, shrinkage, prediction of mechanical properties according to time, temperature and cure level).
Dedicated data acquisition systems for RTM
Example : laboratory acquisition box with 48 or 96 simultaneous channels at 10Hz. Inputs for thermocouples, strain gages (pressure sensors), active heat flow sensors, analog signals.
Real-time display of temperature / flow front / pressure fields.
