  • A mathematical approach for the analysis of data obtained from the monitoring of biocides leached from treated materials exposed to outdoor conditions

    Leaching processes are responsible for the release of biocides from treated materials into the environment. Adequate modeling of emission processes is required in order to predict emission values in the framework of the risk assessment of biocidal products intended for long-term service life. Regression approaches have been applied to data obtained from the long-term monitoring of biocide ...

  • ThermoTeam: SRF production facility saves one million tons of CO2 - Case Study

  • How do I choose audit filters for my opacity monitor?

    Ongoing quality assurance is important for any piece of measuring equipment. From a voltmeter to a spectrophotometer, calibration checks are needed to demonstrate that it is continuing to function within its design specification. An opacity monitor is no different, and the usual method for verification is to perform a calibration error check using traceable audit filters. These are neutral ...

  • Reducing the threat of carbon soot – Case Study

    The U.S. government now recognizes that black carbon soot is the number two cause of climate change and the most important component of air pollution affecting our public health. This soot, caused mainly by the burning of fossil fuels and firewood, is often found in huge smog-like plumes known as "atmospheric brown clouds." According to a report commissioned by the U.N. Environment Program, this ...

  • Facility reduces process downtime – Case Study

    A facilities subcontractor for Boeing required meters to monitor the make-up air mass flow rate into a painting facility. The make-up fans ensure compliance with OSHA and Boeing air quality standards by reducing contamination and airborne particles that result from over-spray. The Boeing standard dictates a minimum airflow of 125 SFPM to the paint booths. Should the airflow drop below this ...

  • Reducing the cost of emissions testing – Case Study

    In the early 1970¹s, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was formed in response to growing concern about air quality. The EPA developed emissions regulations that targeted the carcinogenic impact of engine exhaust, and set tough regulatory standards for manufacturers to develop cleaner engines. Engine makers needed an instrument that could accurately measure the quantity of ...

  • Maximizing bioreactor performance - Case Study

    Paul Sauer, Associate Scientist of Protein Design Lab's Cell Culture Development Group, had two compelling reasons for specifying mass flow controllers for his work: The first was the need to acquire an array of data that would allow them to more effectively control fermentation processes; The second was the need to minimize the formation of foam in the bioreactor's headspace. To minimize foam, ...

  • Advantages of flexible flow measurement in sub-metering of natural gas

    The ability to measure gas flow more accurately with sub-metering based on a new technology, can result in substantial savings. Natural Gas: An Abundant Resource Unlike oil, natural gas exists in abundance in the United States. Of the natural gas consumed in the United States in 2011, 95% was produced domestically. The U.S. Energy Information Administration projects U.S. ...
