Ever wondered what elements/minerals are used in common household electronics and where do they come from?
All of these minerals are mined worldwide so that you can watch television, scroll on your smartphone or work on your laptop. Sustainability is a top priority for many mining companies. How can processes be optimized so that less water and energy is used to mine and process these minerals?
“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” – Arthur C. Clarke
It goes a little too far to call our technology magical, but we will come a long way. However, our technology allows for six advantages that will benefit you. The ultrasonic based density analyzer with chemically inert and wear resistant probe allows you to work safer, save money and save time.
The Importance of Silicon Carbide in Density Measurement and Its Connection to Stardust
So what is there to be so exited about “star dust” when you apply density measuring in your process?
Well, that depends on your appetite*1 for knowledge. The reason that we are so exited about “star dust” has to do with the characteristics of silicon carbide.
Alternative for radiometric density measurement? Eliminate the hazard altogether!
If we have learned one thing from the lost (and later found) radioactive capsule, is that the best way to prevent these type of hazardous situations is to eliminate the hazard altogether.
