Arla Foods has achieved transparency over the energy consumed during cottage cheese production at a factory in Sweden using flow sensors.
Industrial environments are generating more data than ever. Whether for production volume, downtime or serial numbers, this information can offer insight into processes and productivity.
UW-Madison materials science engineers developed an artificial artery that contains piezoelectric elements that can monitor for blockages and other problems remotely, which could be adapted for industrial hoses and pipes that could embed pressure sensors inside.
Iowa State researchers are using aerosol-jet-printing technology to create graphene biosensors that can detect histamine, an allergen and indicator of spoiled fish and meat for better food and beverage safety.
Purdue University researchers are developing technology to reduce diagnosis time of bovine respiratory disease (BRD) to around 30 minutes, which could help reduce the costs of the disease to the agricultural industry.
Researchers are developing a cyber-physical system (CPS) that improves agriculture production by constantly monitoring fields at near single-plant resolution, predicts productivity and helps farmers manage their water and fertilizer use.
University of Missouri engineers discovered the possibility of using pencils to draw bioelectronics on human skin, which could potential use for biomedical components including electrophysiological, temperature and biochemical sensors.
Purude University researcher R. Graham Cooks is working on making mass spectrometers into a smaller, more portable system so its uses can be enhanced in the field.
Choosing an industrial valve for process applications depends on a variety of parameters: Use these five tips to help with process valve selection.
University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers have made it possible to determine a 3D temperature profile for semi-transparent objects in the infrared spectrum, which couldn't be done before.
