ng Harmon field,
This plant is air-conditioned and
humidity controlled, requisites for
successful instrunu nt manufacture to
meet today’s exact ing needs. Altho
a greater part of the local industry
is given over to no manufacture of
electrical measurit and radio and
television servicini instruments of
more common usage, many of the
firm’s production terns are keeping
pace with the late,--t scientific trends
and as a resulA
known.
ire not generally
Elect rica 1 instruments such as
made here are used in matching
colors, grading fruits, sorting cigars,
measuring speed and temperatures,
testing the solidity of rivets and
for a variety of other almost un
believable purposes.
Grading Fruit
Grading fruit with the use of
electrical instruments is far more
exact than any other means. Sensit
ive instruments are made to measure
the actual battery power of fruit.
It has been found that grape-fruit
and lemons generate as much as 20
microamperes of current when prods
connected to the instrument are in
jected into the fruit. Thus, the in
different degrees of quality in fruit
and vegetables can be determined
easily.
Sorting of cigars is effected by
using photo-electric cells and a quick
action relay, made essentially as a
sensitive ammeter. In larger
factories machines equipped with
these ammeters will each sort 120
shades of cigars in less than two
minutes, with the chance of error
through human judgment entirely
eliminated.
Colorimeters, incorporating re
flector lights in conjunction with
photo-electric cells, are used in
matching colors. Readings shown on
a very sensitive microammeter scale
of the colorimeter are referred to a
chart and the exact degree of color,
even to percentages of shades, can
be determined.
The colorimeters are especially of
value in largo department stores,
paint factories, etc., making the
matching of colors difficult.
Medical Uses
In the field of medicine the use of
electrical measuring instruments is
becoming increasingly more import
ant.
The high-frequency radio surgery
knife uses a thermo-couple type in
strument for the regulation of con
trol. The knife instead of being
sharp, has a blade 1/65 of an inch
in thickness which goes through
muscles and tissue as would a razor.
Advantages are evident as the elec
trically heated knife cauterizes as it
cuts. This is particularly import
ant in the treatment of infection.
X-ray machines used now in the
treatment of cancer have precision
instruments that control the volume
of current going to patients. It has
been found the X-ray after several
successive treatments have a ten
dency to destroy tissue of cancer and
in some cases have effected complete
cures.
Other delicate instruments pre
made that show the depth to which
X-rays are penetrating in the body,
plus a host of other unusual usages.
