  • The Role of Soil Moisture on our Climate, Weather and Global Warming

    Global warming is a topic that has received much attention in the media, especially during the hot days of summer. The process by which carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere prevents the escape of thermal energy into outer space is known as the greenhouse effect. The higher the carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere the less thermal energy that can escape thus an increasing ...

  • Changing Response Times

    Timing is everything for your sensors. A sensor that is too sluggish to respond to quickly changing levels or pressure won’t alert you to dangerous process conditions until it’s too late. And an overly sensitive sensor sees an emergency in every stray reading or transient condition. Neither sensor is effective, in terms of time or money. Sensors ...

  • NEO Monitors conquers the Quasi-impossible

    China is a world factory powered by its abundant coal resource. China is facing a huge environmental challenge brought together with the fossil-fired power plants. China has therefore been conducting technical retrofit to the engines of its economy, by introducing emission control facilities. Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology is one of the most widely applied emission control ...

  • Chemical stress from Fe salts dosing on biological phosphorus and potassium behavior

    In simultaneous precipitation, interaction between chemical and biological P removal could not be ignored. This work investigated effects of ferrous sulfate and Fe precipitates on metabolic behavior of bio-P and its counter cation of potassium. After dosing, mixed liquid suspended solids (MLSS) increased 9%, pH decreased from 7.35 to 7.00, sludge volume index (SVI) decreased, electrical ...

  • Micropollutant removal from black water and grey water sludge in a UASB-GAC reactor

    The effect of granular activated carbon (GAC) addition on the removal of diclofenac, ibuprofen, metoprolol, galaxolide and triclosan in a up-flow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor was studied. Prior to the reactor studies, batch experiments indicated that addition of activated carbon to UASB sludge can decrease micropollutant concentrations in both liquid phase and sludge. In continuous ...

  • Selecting the Right Air Quality Monitor

    There are many types of air quality monitors available, but which one is the best choice for measuring gaseous air pollutant concentrations? There are two classes of such air quality monitors: sampling monitors and in-situ monitors (“in-situ” = “in the original position”). Sampling monitors utilises a manifold through which the air to be analysed is pumped. A small air ...
