ACHEMA World Forum and Leading Show for the Process Industries

Achema is the World Forum for Chemical Engineering and the Process Industry, where exhibitors from around the world, present their products, solutions and services, in the areas of chemistry, environmental protection and biotechnology. Achema is the ideal platform for innovation and technology. It has become a trend-setting meeting point and networking, for experts and executives, of all kinds of companies that are pushing the boundaries of chemistry, biochemistry, engineering, pharmaceutical, materials, energy and safety in all these sectors.

Achema explored the topic of bioeconomy, showing its visitors how it is becoming visible and tangible, in the BiobasedWorld exhibition hall.

The forum was also the place to demonstrate how Industrial Water Management is involved in the process industry and the associated apparatus and plant engineering sector. Industrial Water Development is an area with a very important growth, worldwide.

The third focal topic in Achema is Innovative Process Analytical Technology, in which, precise, real time process analytics are presented, as indispensable to the future of chemical production, their increasingly higher standards, quality control an efficiency.

In this forum, PI Integral Solutions worked closely, and presented with the Fraunhofer ISC (Center for Device Development), the Aquajust® Cam. This specially designed computer-controlled unit is a semi-automatic machine for adjusting volumetric flasks and measuring cylinders. The adjusting medium is distilled or demineralized water in accordance with ISO 3696 quality 3.

The machine consists of one station and can be expanded by a second station, which can be controlled from the same computer. The operator loads a measuring flask/graduated cylinder onto the station and pushes a button to activate the station. During the adjusting process a defined amount of water is filled into the volumetric vessel and a high precision camera system searches automatically the meniscus and a marking will be set. When a cycle is completed, the operator removes the adjusted flask or cylinder from the station. The next one is then loaded onto the station and the calibration process is repeated. The marking will be performed from the calibration unit by a pen as a line or a ring mark. Depending on the ordered equipment the marking can also be made with ceramic paint or by means of a grinding wheel.
