Rotronic presents the new issue of its customer magazine 'Humidity News'. The 16-page brochure offers an interesting mix of international application reports and information on the latest products for measuring temperature and humidity.

Among other articles, the reader will find a user report that demonstrates how Rotronic's measuring units make a significant contribution to increased safety in the French road network. And the authors introduce a British technology company that – with the help of Rotronic's AirChip3000 – has developed a system that monitors the shelf life of medicines. You can read more in the comprehensive articles on these application histories and much more in the current issue.

'Rotronic Humidity News 2010' appears in German, French, Italian and English, and can be ordered free of charge from Rotronic.

H. Lundbeck A/S (Lundbeck) announced that the U.S. Federal District Court has ruled in favour of Lundbeck and found no violation of the antitrust laws in the company's acquisition of NeoProfen® (ibuprofen lysine) Injection (10mg/mL), a drug used in premature infants with patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), a condition in which a blood vessel in the heart fails to close after birth.

The measurement of water activity plays a decisive part in the quality inspection of humidity-sensitive products. The free water in a product influences its microbiological, chemical and enzymatic stability, and has a significant influence on the shelf life of the product. Rotronic offers a cased set for all those who are interested in guaranteed precise measurement of water activity.

The case contains a HygroPalm23, which Rotronic has developed specifically as a portable solution for the measurement of water activity. The measuring unit has two exchangeable probe inputs, provides all psychrometric calculations, and can be connected to a PC via mini-USB interface.

The case includes all the accessories needed to allow users to calibrate their measuring unit quickly and easily by themselves. The contents comprise one HygroPalm23, one calibration device, one extension, one calibration solution and one climatic probe. The set is suitable for all areas of application in which water activity is measured, and is an ideal companion in the manufacture of cheese and meat and in the pharmaceutical industry, but also for spot checks in the production of animal feeds, paper, bakery goods and tobacco.

For more detailed information on the HygroPalm23 set and anything else about humidity and temperature measurement, contact Rotronic.

In Rutek we work often from customer sketches and in many cases only from a description of the customer's wishes. One of our major strengths lies in being able to translate these inputs into finished customer solutions. With the new 3D drawing program, we can quickly add customer changes and have simultaneously improved safety for the changes updated on all drawings.

Erik Henriksen as design responsible at Rutek said in the transaction: "With the purchase of the new 3D drawing program, we entered a big step up the ladder compared to our previous 2D application. We will offer our customers a better solution as SolidWorks program will help us to design new solutions faster and easier than before and with the possibility of an improved documentation."

Rutek produces everything in stainless steel tanks, vessels and special constructions. An improvement of the design process and production drawings are expected to increase efficiency significantly, which now also becomes possible to display three-dimensional images of the finished product.

Want to know more about your options with Rutek, please feel free to contact Erik Henriksen and Martin Bak.
