Aero-Tech Laboratory Equipment Company LLC - New Product Updates 1/05/2009:
We are happy to introduce the ALT-SP, a new side ported compatibility vessel, now
capable of pressure & temperature readings quickly, Also great for observation &
stability testing for BOV (bag on valves).
More information about the ATL-SP can be found here
We would also like to introduce ATL-TK, a complete test kit for this new compatibility
Detailed information about the ATL-TK can be found here
The other new products we offer for 2009 are propellant / gas monitoring systems, non-sparking tools, anti-static/ fatigue floor & table mats and personal safety equipment to assure the safest, productive atmosphere and environment.
Aero-Tech Laboratory Equipment Company LLC - News Updates from Aero-Tech Lab
Aero-Tech featured in Spray Technology Magazine
Aero-Tech Laboratories was recently featured in Spray Technology and Marketing Magazine, which has world-wide circulation. The March 1998 issue of Spray Technology magazine was the introduction & review of our Aerosol Can Deseamer. The December 1998 issue was the introduction and review of our Vacuum Crimper. The January 2000 issue was the coverage of the R&D prototype experiment we did for NASA.
Dupont teaches seminars with Aero-Tech Equipment
Dupont, the world's largest supplier of propellants, offers hands-on aerosol seminars with our equipment to potential customers. At the end of the training seminar, Dupont refers the newly certified professionals to Aero-Tech for their R&D needs and product formulation.

The photographs were taken in flight aboard NASA's KC-135, which simulates a microgravity environment.
Edward A. Hovenac, the engineer in charge of the project, said they had a very successful flight with the
GK-500 pressure reaction compatibility vessels. Experiments concluded that conventional packaging of aerosols
will not behave the same in space.
With no gravity present the product will not stay at the bottom of the container. Therefore, the dip tube can not make constant contact with the product, making dispensing very inconsistent and inefficient. The vessels were fitted into the PSGK-500, a polycarbonate hand-held shield made of the same material as bullet proof glass.
Aero-tech is now involved in a second R&D project with NASA to help solve this problem. It involves a product from Advanced Monobloc, a division of CCL Container, which is the Advanced Barrier System, (ABS) bag in the can barrier. The outcome of these experiments should greatly differ. Due to the design of this product, it offers all-attitude, 360-degree dispensing. Aero-tech will post the results of the experiments when concluded. If successful, the prototype lab equipment that is being used in this experiment will be used on the space station.
In the future, Aero-tech will be continuing to support NASA with R&D laboratory equipment on the ground and on the International Space Station. We are very proud to participate in this project with NASA.
The Space Station is the largest and most advanced laboratory ever built for research in space. The station will return scientific, technological, political, and economical benefits to it's International partners; United States, Russia, Canada, Japan, and certain members of the European Space Agency; Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
