E Instruments International’s gas monitoring specialists performed a forklift exhaust gas analysis and an ambient air quality analysis at a Pennsylvania warehouse in which a fleet of propane forklift trucks is operated on a daily basis. The main objectives of these tests were to investigate:
Indoor air quality is a key part of industrial hygiene. Measuring a vast variety of compounds simultaneously helps to ensure that the air quality doesn’t threaten the health of people. Portable Gasmet gas analyzers are the ideal solution for industrial hygiene measurements.
Many of the air quality analyses can be performed with standard laboratory consumables, such as traditional filter papers. However, some analyses require materials with specific features, for example filters with low metal levels.
Common air monitoring applications include:
Air quality testing of ambient environment and emissions. Includes particulate monitoring methods such as PM2.5 and PM10, and chemical analysis such as heavy metals determination.
Asbestos sampling and analysis
The location of the files in an appropriate environment is a necessary condition to preserve them properly. There are numerous studies that identify environmental pollution as the main problem for the conservation of historical objects. Acid gases, such as sulfur, nitrogen and carbon oxides, are the most widespread form of pollution, and they acidify archival materials, accelerating deterioration. The powder has hygroscopic properties, which results in an increase in the humidity of the material, causing the...
Environments with an excess of suspended particles and/or contaminating gasses in the air may be unhealthy and might even cause harmful effects, increasing the risk of developing illnesses. To address these risks, vast numbers of public installations and buildings must provide air filtration solutions to ensure a high quality of air inside the building to safeguard the health and comfort of the occupants.
Within the industrial sector there are specific installations which should pay maximum attention to the protection of their control rooms against corrosion. This is because their activities generate highly corrosive gasses which need to be eliminated in case they affect the functioning of critical electrical equipment. This corrosion compromises the efficiency and safety and can affect the production process itself.
There are ever more uses of water in human activities that require its subsequent purification. Of this, treating this water in waste water treatment plants (WWTP) before releasing it into the ecosystem is in rising demand. Additionally, there is also an increasing need to treat solid waste in rubbish tips to minimise environment impact in this process.
Maxxam provides the mining industry with comprehensive analytical testing services including water, soil and air quality parameters. Analytical testing ranges from metal leaching and acid rock drainage, to Ecotoxicology services and environmental chemistry. We are accredited for specific analytical tests related to mining test regulations and requirements. Along with being accredited for tests such as environmental chemistry and acid mine drainage, below is an excerpt of the laboratory’s current scope of accreditat...
Trace contaminant monitoring in process applications and air quality measurements. Gas measurements play a critical role in both maximising product yield through trace contaminant detection, and ensuring the health and safety of employees and the general public. In addition, the wider environment is also protected from potentially harmful emissions.
An increasingly dangerous trend in home and building Energy Audits focus solely on the “Energy Efficiency” of the building while ignoring the potential risks of sealing “IN” CO2 emissions and moisture in the home causing serious health and comfort concerns. By sealing your home to be “Air Tight” for the purpose of decreasing gas and electric bills, you could also be making our buildings TOO TIGHT. In many cases, the benefits associated with a drop of energy usage carry a heavy...
Upstream and downstream activities in the industry require a variety of gas analysis capabilities that are well served by MIRICO’s laser-based technology. Our unique Laser Dispersion Spectroscopy technique is a versatile technology that can be deployed in an open-path configuration for the measurement of methane for health & safety monitoring. When combined with an array of reflectors, a single light source can cover a complex route in excess of 1 km, a considerably larger distance than comparable...
