  • Robust and accurate Rotork valve actuation at the centre of advanced oil tanker VOC emission control system

    The controlled release is often undertaken when the gas pressure approaches a pre-set point. However, it is not always clear at what pressure a manually controlled release should be stopped. Without this information, excess vapours can be released, causing air pollution and a loss of cargo. To meet this challenge the VOCON Valve and Reporting System controls the vapour pressure in oil cargo tanks ...

  • E Instruments Supplies an Innovative Product for the Accurate Measurement of Volatile Organic Compounds and Formaldehyde for Air Quality Applications

    Of the compounds that occur in solids and liquids, volatile organic compounds are some of the most dangerous. Because of their chemical structures, VOCs evaporate at room temperatures, posing constant health hazards. High concentrations of VOCs can result in headaches, irritation of the throat or skin, and even damage to your internal organs. Here at E Instruments, we know the reason why VOCs ...

  • New DoD Fact Sheets on Vapor Intrusion

    A series of fact sheets has been prepared by the Department of Defense (DoD) Tri-Service Environmental Risk Assessment Workgroup (TSERAWG) to update and supplement the DoD Vapor Intrusion Handbook.

  • Assessing VOC Exposures in New Construction or Recently Renovated Buildings in Puerto Rico

    It’s quite common for a person to walk into a newly constructed or recently renovated home or office and comment about the “new” smell. While this “new” smell is pleasant to some, and may invoke feelings of a clean and fresh indoor environment, usually it actually means the person is being exposed to high levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These ...
