In this work, the calculation of [gamma](r) and the determination of the crystalline lamella thickness ([l.sub.c]), the amorphous layer thickness ([l.sub.a]), and the invariant Q were carried out using the SAXSDAT software [25].
This peak is attributed to a long period indicating the presence of a regular stacking of crystalline lamella. In addition, we showed in a former study that in the case of PEF, secondary crystallization occurs in this timelap as revealed by the presence of a small endotherm at low temperatures during crystallization (see Fig.
Further use of the black lamellas is always visible behind the screen.
The secondary lamella is covered by a squamous epithelium that generally shows a thickness of one or two cell layers.
In salinity of 7 g [L.sup.-1], slight alterations were observed such as epithelial lifting, fusion of secondary lamellae, aggregation of cells in the primary lamella and severe alterations such as telangiectasia and aneurysms in a few secondary lamellae.
The goal of this project was to design such an automatic system for continuous monitoring of lamella geometry quality after re-sawing using sash-gang saws.
A two-sided laser triangulation system known as a sandwiching measurement method has been proposed for assessment of lamella thickness (Fig.
At the end of the pressing zone is a flying cutoff saw which reads the gap between the top lamellas and cuts the planks to the length of the top lamellas.
It is easy for the operator to make adjustments to different block sizes and lamella sizes on the touch screen.
The low-density particles are held in the slurry suspension and migrate to the lamella section of the Reflux classifier.
The lamella principle is to have a series of closely spaced inclined plates to increase the settling area available per unit of plan area.
The thickener consists of an upper tank containing the lamella plates which are inclined at 45 [degrees] or 55 [degrees], and a conical or cylindrical sludge hopper.
