Outcomes Of Mid-Air Collisions Between Drops And Solid Particles
The study of drop-particle collisions involves examining the outcome of the impact of a particle on to a drop of liquid in mid-air. In applications such as tablet coating in the pharmaceutical industry, or the refining of heavy crude oil in fluid catalytic cracking, the information gleaned from this experiment is vital.  Continue Reading..
The Heat Is On: Examining Two-Phase Flow And Heat Transfer With High-Speed Cameras
The Heat Is On: Examining Two-Phase Flow And Heat Transfer With High-Speed Cameras
We rely on air conditioning and refrigeration to operate through a heat exchanger — a transfer of heat between one or more fluids, essentially increasing heating and cooling efficiency and flow. A group of Pennsylvania State University students is studying two-phase flow and heat transfer phenomena in an effort to advance these processes and their technologies.   Continue Reading..

In this case study high-speed cameras are used to make sound "visible" to researchers while they investigate new strategies for noise reduction on jet engines.   Continue Reading..

HIGH SPEED CAMERAS PRODUCTS

The Phantom v-Series of digital high-speed cameras are designed to eliminate blur, see the smallest of details, and keep moving targets in-frame as long as possible for the longest recording time for an event. 

PCO’s high speed CMOS camera series delivers extremely fast frame rates, high resolution, and a variety of operational and trigger modes. They are well suited for applications involving airbag inflation, combustion research, ballistics testing, and other high speed camera applications.

USB 3.0 Cameras are available in industrial and scientific models and feature frame rates up to 170 fps, a blur-free global shutter CMOS sensor, built-in image processing and frame memory, low noise and high sensitivity, a compact design, and more. This series provides 2 and 4 megapixel color, mono, and NIR solutions.

These high speed, low light imaging CCD cameras come in monochrome, color mosaic, and slider configurations. Each model features high sensitivity and fast frame rates, which helps greatly in preserving live cells and fading specimens for imaging and fluorescence applications.

The OWL SW1.7 digital camera series, designed and manufactured by Raptor Photonics, offers the latest SWIR sensor technology enabling high sensitivity imaging. The OWL SW1.7 CL HS is equipped with a higher frame rate with windowing, 14 bit CameraLink output, minimum 500ns exposure and easy camera control for capturing fast moving objects and active imaging applications.

The FALCON EMCCD camera, model FA285-CL, features a 1kx1k EMCCD sensor that stands out with its extreme sensitivity, high resolution, high speed and excellent Quantum Efficiency. The camera is peltier cooled, uses a 16 bit A/D converter and offers a standard CameraLink output. The Falcon camera offers outstanding performance for low light applications, such as fluorescence imaging, astronomy, electrophoresis, X-ray and hyperspectral imaging.

Vision Research offers the new Phantom Flex4K-GS based on the Flex4K cinema camera platform. It incorporates a global shutter with a 4K, 9.4 megapixel, 35mm sensor, which ensures that every pixel exposes at the same moment in time. 

The FASTCAM Mini WX100 high-speed camera delivers 2048 x 2048 pixel resolution at 1,080fps (Mini WX50 750fps), 1920 x 1080 pixel full HD resolution at 2,000fps (Mini WX50 1,500fps) and frame rates up to 80,000fps (Mini WX50 67,500fps) at reduced image resolution.
