Work when others sleep – service on the runway

by G. Lufft Mess- und Regeltechnik GmbH  (May 19, 2016)

When asking our quality manager Hartmut Schneider, which kind of projects are the most spectacular ones in his opinion, he’d answer: airport projects. In the following he reports on the general challenges during runway sensor acceptance tests… On large international airports, it can take several years until an installation and ...

Chlorine Safety and Prevention: How to Protect Yourself from Chlorine Leaks

by PureAire Monitoring Systems, Inc  (May 3, 2016)

While chlorine gas is widely used in swimming pools, water treatment facilities, cleaning products, pharmaceutical products, and in many other industries, the gas is highly toxic when handled improperly. Training your workers on how to safely use chlorine is one part of health and safety best practices; monitoring your workplace for chlorine leaks ...

4- Step Guide to Choosing the Right Temperature Sensor

by CAS DATALOGGERS  (May 29, 2012)

Temperature measurements are among the most common data logging applications found across a broad variety of industries including medical monitoring, cold chain integrity, machine monitoring, and many more. There are 4 main types of temperature sensors that are used with data loggers, and it can seem like a lengthy decision to find the right type. ...

Accuracy in temperature sensor response time estimation for new nuclear reactor designs

by Inderscience Publishers  (Mar. 29, 2011)

One method for measuring the response time of temperature sensors, the plunge test, verifies that the sensor has a suitable response time in the laboratory before installation. However, plunge test results cannot be extrapolated to the response time in an operating plant because response time is affected by multiple factors such as the ratio of ...

Group method of data handling and neural networks applied in temperature sensors monitoring

by Inderscience Publishers  (Aug. 22, 2011)

In this work a monitoring system is developed based on the Group Method of Data Handling (GMDH) and Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) methodologies. GMDH creates non-linear algebraic models for system characterisation and ANN is a massively parallel distributed processor made up of simple processing units called neurons. The monitoring system was ...

PT sensors

by madur Polska Sp. z o.o.  (Apr. 1, 2014)

Temperature detectors based on the phenomenon of metal resistance changes with the change of temperature are probably the most popular type of temperature sensors used in industry sector. Most popular temperature resistors are based on platinum and nickel. Historically the first sensor made was the platinum sensor with the resistance of 100#1; and ...

Flow Profiling on Demand – Illuminating the reservoir with Silixa’s intelligent Distributed Acoustic Sensor (iDAS) and ULTIMA Distributed Temperature Sensor (DTS)

by Silixa Ltd  (Mar. 22, 2013)

As energy demands increase rapidly, the goal of energy companies is to maximize ultimate recovery in an economically sound manner. One critical capability is the accurate measurement and monitoring of production from individual layers / perforated intervals in a multi-zone completion. This data allows operators to optimize zonal production, ...

Response time testing of temperature sensors using loop current step response method

by Inderscience Publishers  (Feb. 20, 2013)

The Loop Current Step Response (LCSR) method is used for in–situ response time testing of temperature sensors as installed in an industrial process. This paper presents the theoretical foundation of the LCSR (test theory, LCSR equation and test procedures) and the author's research to validate its use in nuclear power industry applications. ...

Dissolved oxygen measurements in aquatic environments: The effects of changing temperature and pressure on three sensor technologies

by Soil Science Society of America  (Apr. 28, 2008)

Dissolved oxygen (DO) is probably the most important parameter related to water quality and biological habitat in aquatic environments. In situ DO sensors are some of the most valuable tools used by scientists and engineers for the evaluation of water quality in aquatic ecosystems. Presently, we cannot accurately measure DO concentrations under ...

Typical Sensor Location Considerations

by Arjay Engineering Ltd.  (Jan. 8, 2016)

The sensor mounting location within a space may be dependent on many variables. There are no specific formulas since each application will have it’s own determining factors and priorities. These include, but are not limited to: source of gas: Is the source a combustion exhaust from a vehicle or furnace or a vapour from a tank spill, pipe ...
