Air is lifeblood. Daily we inhale approximately 15.000 liter. Still, the air contains invisible pollutants, which vary in its composition and concentration depending on the location. Especially the respirable particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 µm (PM 2.5) were considered to be particularly dangerous.
The recent COP 21 meeting reexposed the need for global coordination to monitor Green House Gases (GHG) as well as emissions of ChloroFluoroCarbons (CFC). Networks of sensors have been deployed over the Earth to measure concentration of gases such as methane, carbon monoxide, ethane, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, nitrogen oxide and dioxide (NOx)… Such task requires instrument with not only ultra high accuracy but also ultra high precision. Our QCNose Instruments have been...

Ambient condition changes can happen anywhere in production lines 24/7. Are you the first to know about it? Whether you’re in pharmaceuticals, banking, manufacturing or other technology, where monitoring of ambient conditions like temperature, humidity or air pressure count - Business doesn’t stop. We offer a wide range of product to detect every change in ambient conditions - to have your threshold values always under control!Premium
Many large combustion plants are now required to monitor mass emissions of major pollutants and to do so requires an accurate measurement of stack gas velocity. The VCEM 5100 is certified to EN 15267 part 3 QAL 1 for all industrial processes including waste incineration. It has several key advantages, firstly the sensors optics are not in contact with the hot and dusty environment, the VCEM 5100 can monitor gases at temperatures exceeding 10000C and the analyser requires minimal maintenance. The VCEM 5100 can...

If you use compressed breathing air it is essential to monitor for contaminants including carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as well as oil mist and water vapour. Some people spot-check their compressed air quarterly using colorimetric tubes, but it is safer to test the air continuously. If you are operating or servicing equipment containing fluorinated greenhouse gas (F gas) in refrigeration, air conditioning and fire protection systems you need to adhere to...

The most important measurement parameter is irradiation. Since PV systems are becoming ever larger, the accuracy of the irradiation measurement is increasingly important for the efficiency of the system. Wind cools the temperature of the module and must therefore be included in the efficiency calculation. Precipitation leads to contamination or covering (snow). With increasing temperature, the performance of the solar module decreases. Therefore, it is important to measure the temperature of the solar...Premium
Most sources of fugitive emissions are from multiple points rather than single point sources. So, open path area or perimeter monitoring provides more meaningful fugitive emissions data than an array of point sensors or a program of grab sampling. Point measurements may underestimate emissions because of missing locations with high gas concentrations, or conversely overestimate because they are located in areas of high concentrations. Grab sampling programs typically check only a small percentage of potential...

Phosgene COCl2 is a colorless gas. While it has been used as a Chemical Weapon Agent (CWA) in the past, currently this poisonous gas is also an important reagent in synthesis in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. The plants using phosgene are typically equipped with gas sensors to detect leaks in the indoor ambient air. The critical situations arise when equipment in contact with the gas at the manufacturing facilities are serviced and maintained. As phosgene is very poisonous, even small gas pockets...

The TunnelTech 101 Visibility Monitor (VIS), is an essential part of any road or rail tunnel safety system. It monitors the Visibility within the tunnel and ensures that the tunnel ventilation system provides sufficient clean air for drivers to clearly see the road ahead. The TunnelTech 102 Cold smoke monitor (CSM detects smoke from a fire to rapidly warn the operator of the hazard. Secondly, used in combination with other TunnelTech 101 VIS monitors, the operator can quickly detect the locus of the fire if it...

Fast, accurate and reliable measurement of CH4. The extraction of coal releases methane gas, which can mix with the air in a mine to form a hazard due to its flammability. Ventilation with fresh air from the surface is used to dilute the methane and reduce the risk of explosion. Monitoring of the methane content of the stale air exiting the mine allows the amount of ventilation to be controlled. Although our sensors are not ATEX approved for use in potentially explosive atmospheres they are suitable for...

The medical industry requires the accurate and consistent performance of its equipment. IST’s precise and reliable sensors meet the needs of these applications. Flow is perhaps the most widely used sensor in this industry, controlling medical devices where a gas or fluid is being supplied to a patient, or in cases of patient monitoring. Humidity sensors also have an application in the medical industry in products that control the air present or supplied to the patient.
