  • Publication number: 20210278328
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides various embodiments of a fluorescence scanning system having a sample holder with a sample suspended within that is rotated by a centrifuge such that the sample is illuminated at various angles by an excitation beam by operation of a galvanometer and such that the sample emits a fluorescence emissions that is detected through a narrow window of exposure defined along the travel path of rotation taken by the sample holder when rotated by the centrifuge. A stationary fluorescence detector is in operative communication with the sample holder along the narrow window of exposure for detecting the fluorescence emissions emitted by the sample from the sample holder while also separating the excitation beam from the fluorescence emissions.

  • Publication number: 20170261420
    Abstract: A Stationary Assembly, for Chemical Injection, Atomization, and Sacrificial Probe Corrosion Monitoring that is configured around a main body portion, utilizing interchangeable lower end devices to perform these functions. The top inlet port of the apparatus accepts a chemical injection line for use with the injection quill or atomizer lower body portions, or a plug element for use with lower body portions that accept rod, disk, or flat type corrosion probes. Ports for equalization of pressure on the corrosion probe holder lower body portions for use with the plug element will also allow the use of a valve to allow fluid sampling at the corrosion monitoring site. Insertion depth similarities for these processes in a given high pressure vessel or flowline configuration allow the main body portion to perform the functions associated with the individual lower body portions.
