Teaching Carnival: Pod People

So. I've become one of those freaky teachers that during my undergrad left me speechless and vaguely wishing I could flee. I mean the poor guy simply wanted some feedback on his research proposal. He mentioned an interest in culinary traditions and technologies and I blurt out with full conviction that the history and impact of refrigeration is ABSOLUTELY FASCINATING! (When I was his age I never imagined my lips would speak that combination of words, and apparently I'm still struggling to not put pressure on people like that. Sigh.) But, bless his kind spirit, he found a way at the end of our conversation to let me know he'd give the question of refrigeration some thought.

Envirotech introduced the APM 451 Respirable Dust Sampler based on CSIR NEERI knowhow. The system was upgraded to Buy APM 460BL in 1997. The APM 460 sampler uses an improved cyclone with sharper cutoff (D50 at 10 microns) to separate the coarser particulates from the air stream before filtering it on the glass microfibre filter. By using the Buy APM 460BL, measurement of Respirable Particulate Matter can be done accurately and TSPM can also be assessed by collection of dust retained in the cyclone cup Buy APM 460BL.
