Performance: An infrared spectrometer should provide high spectral resolution and fast,
accurate recording at maximum signal-to-noise ratio. High spectral resolution demands
aberration-free optics—aspheric if necessary. Maximum signal demands a high-aperture
monochromator. Minimum noise demands an efficient detector and a simple stable ampli-
fier operating at Johnson noise limit.
Flexibility : An infrared spectrometer should provide flexible performance to meet the en-
tire range of chemical application. Flexibility requires full control range for all operating
variables, simple prism interchange, and a wide range of reasonably-priced sampling acces-
sories, directly introduced into an accessible sample space,
Such design features are available only in Perkin-Elmer infrared spectrometers—the
most widely used instruments in infrared work.*

Inconel-lined fat-splitting tower at Swift & Company's
Technical Products plant, Hammond, Indiana

Design engineers at Swift & Co., wanted two things from their new fat-
splitting tower in Hammond, Indiana. And both required a
corrosion-resisting construction material.
First, they wanted light colored fatty acids with good color and
oxidation stability.
Secondly, they wanted a tower that would successfully stand up against
the severe conditions of temperature, pressure and corrosives involved.
That's why the engineers lined their tower with Inconel®.
Inconel is resistant to the highly corrosive fat-splitting process. It
withstands the high temperature (500°F.) and pressures (700 psi.)
required for efficient operation.
And since the expansion coefficient of Inconel is very close to that of
steel, Inconel lends itself well to lined and clad construction. Since its
corrosion resistance is not impaired by welding, no subsequent heat
treatment is necessary.
All in all, Inconel proves itself ideal for fat-splitting tower applications.
Today, Inconel, like Nickel Swift's 70-ft.-high Inconel-lined tower has been producing material
and the other Nickel A l ­ with average acid number of 197...with efficiencies about 9 9 % for
loys, is on extended de­ the past three years. Despite the severe conditions of temperature,
