CorDEX Instruments has formed a strategic partnership with the University of Aberdeen in Scotland, UK, to develop safe and explosion-proof technologies for research.

The university will receive £150,000 from CorDEX, which will also provide equipment and onsite training in the use of oil and gas tools over the next three years.

The company will supply the toughPIX digital camera and the UT5000 intrinsically safe thickness gauge, which will be used by the university in a research project.

CorDEX Instruments CEO Tony Holliday said the company is pleased to be involved in the research project and plans to provide students with knowledge from current industry practice.
