The instrumentation at the service of materials

Matériau Ingénierie combines the indispensable skills needed to develop, manufacture and maintain the testing solutions that we offer.

New Congotech

New measurement system for a new Congotech.

The Congotech suffered electronics obsolete due to the disappearance of some component that does not meet the RohS standard.

Also, the entire photodiode / LED has been redesigned . Our research took the opportunity to redesign the Congotech and associated software.

m congotech

Major improvements:

  • New photodiodes and LEDs. Adjusting the intensity of LEDs and photodiodes configurable output.
  • Optimization of thermal regulation: reaching the set point (if Congotech cold) faster, and better compliance set point.
  • Ventilation for the electronics , preventing overheating, and therefore premature aging of components.
  • Improved ergonomics :
    • Presence diode test status (ongoing or completed)
    • Racks on the sides for storage of pH paper holder and glass tubes
    • adjustable feet
    • Autonomous thermal control (without PC) to the last known set value
  • The software has been redesigned :
    • more fluid
    • Further customization
    • Compatible with the latest versions of Windows
    • statistical treatments
    • French and English (for now)

With its USB connectivity, a laptop can be used.

    Ashland Training Day

    Three years ago, we moved into new larger premises more suited to our business. This new stage in the development of Material Engineering was the opportunity to invest in spaces (calibration laboratory, testing laboratory) for the reception and training of technicians and technical managers in optimal conditions.

    As such, we recently had the pleasure of receiving employees from several Ashland Group sites: Kehl in Germany, Porvoo in Finland and in France Pujaut. This visit was the opportunity to train these people to different types of rheological test (gel time, crosslinking) using a RheotechTR and to discuss the specific needs related to standards and internal methods used by Ashland. These discussions have also led to the development of new accessories and new software options (see our article on the latest development of RheotechTR).
