Dunlop Oil and Marine, part of the ContiTech Division of Continental AG, is a world leader in the design, manufacture, and supply of hoses for the oil, gas and petrochemical industries, for both offshore and onshore based operations.
The Lyell Centre is a £21m collaborative project between the British Geological Survey (BGS) and Heriot-Watt University (HWU), to enable them to build on their expertise in land and marine conservation, geology and geo-science. This purpose-built facility required high purity laboratory gas systems.
The Centre for Ecology & Hydrology is the United Kingdom's Centre of Excellence for integrated research in hydrology, terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems and their interaction with the atmosphere. At their Lancaster site our Competent Examiners identified a way to assist the company in upgrading their gas systems with high end, fully compliant, high purity, laboratory gas systems, within their analytical laboratories.
In mid-2015 SUERC started work on commissioning a clumped isotope analytical system. Clumped isotopes are a relatively new isotopic analytical technique, first used in around 2005, and mainly used as a thermometric technique, measuring the temperature of formation of carbonates in everything from the skeletons of sea animals, terrestrial rocks, extra-terrestrial rocks like meteorites and esoteric samples like dinosaur teeth, by dissolving the carbonate in acid to produce CO2, and measuring it in a stable isotope mass spectrometer.
Based in the heart of London, King's is one of the world's leading research and teaching universities. Speck and Burke are responsible for carrying out more than 50 fixed gas system and 200 cylinder regulator inspections annually across buildings including Guy’s Hospital, St Thomas’ Hospital, Denmark Hill and the Franklin-Wilkins Building.
