    noun + inf./ger.?

    Hello!
    What sounds better to you:
    "equipment to identify (xyz) properties"
    "equipment for identifying (xyz) properties"?

    Any other options?

    Thank you.

    I like both:


    • equipment used (in order) to identify...
    • equipment used for (the purposes of) identifying...
