The new SOLAS regulation XI-1.7 calls for all Ships over 500 tons to carry compliant confined space gas detection equipment.
SOLAS compliant gas detection should detect Oxygen (O2), Flammable gases (CH4 ir HC), Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S), Carbon Monoxide (CO), have sample draw capability over 10 hours operation and be Explosion Proof: Intrinsically safe ( ATEX in Europe)
The International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) is an international treaty that sets minimum safety standards in the construction, equipment and operation of merchant ships.
SOLAS in it's successive forms is generally regarded as the most important of all international treaties concerning the safety of merchant ships.

Li-ion battery electrodes are manufactured by casting a slurry onto a metallic current collector. The slurry contains an active material, conductive carbon, and a binder. The binder is pre-dissolved in a solvent, most commonly N-Methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP). After mixing, the resulting slurry is cast onto the current collector and then dried. Evaporating the solvent to create a dry porous electrode is needed to fabricate the battery. Drying can take a wide range of time with some electrodes taking 24 hours at more than 120 °C to completely dry.View Story
Laboratories regularly use inert gases in a number of applications. Helium and Argon, for example, provide a stable inert atmosphere within glove-boxes by purging the Oxygen. In addition they provide the same function in Additive Manufacturing (AM) machines and 3D printer chambers. Liquid Nitrogen is also used to provide temperatures as low as -196°C . This makes it ideal for use in Cryo-biology, Cryo-Surgery and General Cryogenic research.View Story
