As we continue to monitor Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments closely, the health and well-being of our team, customers, and their employees is of utmost importance to us.
As a trusted vendor, we understand the imperative of limiting the impact this situation could have on our services. We are keenly focused on maintaining a safe work environment for our team while ensuring continuous service.
We have a robust integrated Business Resiliency Program in place and are committed to keeping our operations running smoothly.
This Plan includes:
Minimizing supply chain disruptions through constant communications with our production facilities and logistics partners
Maintaining larger stock levels of products at our distribution facility
Prioritizing orders being shipped based on the order in which they were received
Enabling work from home capabilities for our sales and support staff
Providing our team members with information and best practices to prevent the spread of any illness
Coordinating communications with our team, associates, customers and partners
Limiting all non-essential business travel
In the short term, you might experience a slightly longer than anticipated lead time for fulfilment of some the orders. Please be assured, we are taking every measure to ensure minimal disruptions or delays and continue to monitor this fluid situation on a daily basis.
Thank you for your business, and your continued support.
Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) - Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) is a technique to visualize flow and measure instantaneous flow velocity and direction of a fluid. The technique relies on two images being taken from picoseconds to milliseconds apart, allowing computer analysis to follow the movement of individual particles in two dimensions. The fluid must have visible particles small enough to faithfully follow the flow of the liquid or gas sample. These particles can be part of the sample, or seeded into the liquid or gas to aid the visualization and analysis. PIV is commonly used in many different areas, such as combustion, aerosol analysis, pipe flows and wind tunnel experiments.
Laser light is used due to the high intensity beams that can be produced and the ability of the beam to be shaped into a 2-dimensional light sheet that forms the canvass of the image. The power requirement is proportional to the size of the sample that needs to be measured with a large sample requiring higher powers. The beam pointing stability is also crucial as any movement in the light sheet, will artificially corrupt the velocity measurements. A range of laser wavelengths can be used depending on sensitivity of the measurement camera.
