Google Street View car monitoring the air quality in the Amsterdam region

Since a few months you may encounter 2 Google Street View cars in the Amsterdam area to map the air quality at street level. Utrecht University (IRAS) is responsible for the technical and scientific support of the project and j.j. bos has supplied a number of (TSI) systems in the cars to measure the air quality.  

LiTeM and MTS present at Plastic fair 2019

At the Plastic Fair on Sept. 25-26 in Veldhoven (NL), j.j. bos will present a pneumatic material fatigue test system from LiTeM and Charpy Impact tester for Plastics from MTS. The LiTeM testframe is basically universal and can be used for many test applications, but for this event an application from the polymer world will be shown.  

MTS Acumen family extension

MTS Systems has expanded the Electrodynamic Acumen Family with the 12kN Acumen 12 and horizontal 1kN Acumen 1H test systems.  

New range butanol CPC’s

This year TSI is launching a new family of butanol based condensation particle counters (CPC): the CPC's 3750, 3752 and 3756, replacing the models 3772, 3775 and 3776 respectively.  

New joint operation: VSPARTICLE

This year j.j bos b.v. is proud to announce a new cooperation with VSPARTICLE. VSPARTICLE is a spin-up from Delft University located in the Netherlands. They manufacture desktop aerosol generators which produce inorganic nanoparticles in the region of 0-20nm. Those generators are based on the spark ablation technology. Those generators enable a high degree of control over purity, particle size, and particle composition. It is a cost effective and flexible way of producing nanoparticles for research applications. G1 nanoparticle generator Please discover the VSP Generator One (VSP-G1).
