Low level moisture measurement in Natural gas using a Lunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (tdlas) based laser case study

by Ametek Process Instruments - THERMOX  (Nov. 24, 2014)

Introduction The measurement of water vapor in natural gas has long been of industrial importance, and has been addressed by a variety of analytical techniques over the years. Chief among these techniques has been the quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) based analyzers. The QCM technology is still the workhorse for production and pipeline ...

Emissions analyser helps manage power station

by Quantitech Ltd  (Feb. 20, 2015)

A multiparameter emissions monitor at Thetford power station is being used to demonstrate to the Environment Agency that the plant is performing within the conditions of its environmental permit. However, the data from the analyser, which was supplied by Milton Keynes based Quantitech, also performs a vitally important role in helping to manage ...

Mercury and other trace elements in Ohio River fish collected near coal‐fired power plants: Interspecific patterns and consideration of consumption risks

by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.  (Jan. 14, 2015)

Many coal‐fired electric generating facilities in the US are discharging higher loads of Hg, Se, and other chemicals to receiving streams due to the installation of flue gas desulfurization (FGD) air pollution control units. There are regulatory concerns about the potential increased uptake of these bioaccumulative trace elements into food ...

Monitoring landfill gas

by Geotech  (Nov. 23, 2011)

Infrared absorption Infrared absorption is usually the preferred method for measuring methane and carbon dioxide. Most gases absorb radiation in the infrared region. The wavelength of radiation that is absorbed is determined by the natural vibration frequencies of the molecule. These natural frequencies will depend on several factors. Thus ...

A novel spectrometer design for process and handheld infrared spectral measurements

by CIC Photonics, Inc.  (Aug. 9, 2011)

Introduction Infrared spectroscopy offers many unique advantages for measurements within an industrial environment. Historically, the technique has been used for a broad range of applications from the composition of gas and liquid mixtures to the analysis of trace components for gas purity analysis. In cases where a well-defined method of ...

A marked improvement in the reliability of the measurement of trace moisture in gases

by Moisture Control & Measurement Ltd  (Dec. 1, 2009)

Introduction Water is an important substance without which mankind cannot survive. However, it also causes problems such as residual impurity in scientific experiments and in manufacturing processes where a high-vacuum condition or a high-purity gas is required. This is because water is present in the atmosphere in large quantities and therefore ...

Fractionation of uranium and other trace elements in soil samples collected in selected regions of the Republic of Kazakhstan

by Inderscience Publishers  (Oct. 15, 2012)

To determine the specific chemical forms of trace elements and to study of their mobility/availability in soil, samples collected in the Republic of Kazakhstan were analysed using the revised BCR protocol. A study was made with dependence of the mobility of different elements of interest on digestion procedures for collected soil samples and ...
