Thermo Electron Corporation Presents a Wide Range of Products for Polymer Analysis and Processing Applications at NPE 2006

Newington, NH - June 19, 2006 - Thermo Electron Corporation, an industry leading producer of analytical and process instrumentation, is showcasing a wide range of measurement equipment at NPE 2006, June 19-23, booth #4326, in Chicago, IL.

Among Thermo Electron Corporation's featured products is the new, versatile PRISM TSE 24 MC compounder that provides small-scale continuous processing for R&D and production applications. The proven "clam-shell" design of the 24 mm opening barrel gives immediate access to the screws for easy cleaning and quick configuration changes. New, replaceable barrel liners can be manufactured from special materials to handle aggressive applications. A new high, free-volume geometry improves feeding of low-density ingredients.

Other complementary products will be demonstrated, including the flexible HAAKE PolyLab OS torque rheometer, and the HAAKE MiniLab micro-compounder, which requires only small amounts (as little as 5 g) of materials - ideal for developing expensive new polymers.

Several online, non-contact thickness measurement gauges used on production lines will be displayed, including the operator station of a Radiometrie RM 200 EK/RM 210 EK system that measures thicknesses of extruded plastics films and biaxially stretched films. The system can be equipped with an automatic die control of the foil thickness and the foil cross profile to enable significant improvements in product quality and to reduce time during product changes. Thermo also will show the Radiometrie RM 300 ED system that provides differential thickness measurement and coating thickness control for multi-layered flat sheet products, enabling uniform coating and raw material savings.

Thermo's in-motion weighing, inspection, and monitoring equipment for production and process control will also be represented, including solids flow measurement, continuous and point level measurement and conveyor safety and protection equipment..
