    Meteorological sensors for dust monitoring

    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.

    High quality gas sensor solutions for total organic carbon (TOC)

    Minimising costs through measurement of CO2 concentration. Both water suppliers and water users need to know the quality of the water they are supplying, using and disposing of so as to minimise their costs. One measure of water quality is the organic carbon content (TOC). TOC is measured by oxidising the organic carbon to produce CO2 which is then measured and the value converted into a TOC measurement. Edinburgh Sensors supply sensors to measure the CO2 concentration produced by oxidising the organic carbon in a water sample, allowing the TOC to be calculated. This TOC value determines one measure of how clean the water sample is.

    Sensor for Biogas

    Anaerobic Digestion plants produce various gas components from a source material (or feedstock) that can be composed either solely or as a mixture of slurries, purpose-grown crops, food and organic waste material. The composition of the gas produced varies depending upon the feedstock and the Anaerobic digestion process itself. As a consequence, it is normal to measure various components of the resultant gas produced to evaluate the efficiency of the Anaerobic Digestion process. Furthermore, due to the flammable nature of Methane (CH4), and the risk of asphyxiation, most plants feature ambient air monitoring to protect personnel from any unplanned accumulation of leaked gas. CH4 is the gas component fuel, which is the intended end product of the anaerobic digestion process. In biogas plants, the concentration of CH4 in a working plant varies between 50%-75%, which is well above the Upper Explosive Limit (UEL).

    High quality gas sensor solutions for mining

    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 monitoring air containing methane concentrations below the lower explosive limit. Our OEM products can be built into equipment which is approved for use in the monitoring of mine exhaust gas and similar applications.

    High quality gas sensor solutions for building and IAQ

    Precise measurement of air quality. The carbon dioxide content of room air gives a measure of the air quality, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of the people occupying the building. Air quality can be adversely affected by increased levels of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulates, or bacteria. Increased ventilation reduces the level of all of these unwanted contaminants. Measuring the CO2 concentration provides an economical way of ensuring that there is sufficient air circulation and prevents over-ventilation which can add unnecessary heating or cooling costs.

  • Airport Environmental Monitoring

    Water pollution from airport run-off is increasingly coming under public and government scrutiny. As environmental regulations tighten, the ability to monitor for aviation fuel contamination from runway run-off has become essential.

    Monitoring sites at airports can be extremely challenging often with no power or telephone lines available and with limited access for maintenance. Chelsea’s robust UviLux Hydrocarbon Sensor with its low power consumption and high accuracy is ideally suited for this application. Installed at various locations around the airport, deployed with it’s own integrated anti-biofouling system, utilising the GSM network, the monitoring sites send data to a secure ftp site, where any internet enabled device can access the data. In this way the systems act as any early warning system allowing any hydrocarbon discharge to be detected in real-time.

    Optional environmental monitoring features include remote control to allow the user to turn equipment on and off, change the sample rate and detection range. There is also a facility to allow SMS text and email alarm notifications triggered by user-defined set-points together with customised web pages, data displays and automated data downloads via an ftp server.

    Airport runoff can contain high concentrations of various pollutants, in particular polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), the environmental levels of which have to be monitored. An understanding of the magnitude of contamination due to airport runoff water is important for the effective management of airport infrastructure. Chelsea’s robust UviLux Hydrocarbon Sensor with its low power consumption and high accuracy is ideally suited to the airport environment.

  • Gas Detection Solutions for GHG Monitoring

    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 leak locations and extrapolate results to an entire facility. Wide margins of uncertainty are associated with such extrapolations. Open path monitoring provides continuously updated, real-time, integrated emissions across a facility boundary.This provides a complete picture of the fugitive emissions across that boundary,enabling identification of specific operations and times that give rise to higher emissions, and so enabling these emissions to be properly managed and controlled.

    Gas monitoring instruments and systems for phosgene monitoring

    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 in serviced equipment may be dangerous to maintenance personnel. Gasmet™ FTIR Gas Analyzers are ideal tools to monitor point sources of phosgene. The measurement technology has high specificity, may be operated continuously, and has a fast response time.

  • Fugitive emissions monitoring on industrial sites

    The real-time monitoring of odorous gases or more classical pollutants emitted by industrial sites (wastewater treatment plants, refineries, landfills, etc.) appears nowadays as a requirement, in order to optimize the site process and operations, or communicate towards the neighborhoods and local public bodies. While emissions can be measured directly at the source (in the stack, exhaust, etc.), ambient air measurement all around the sites provides a better accuracy and anticipate pollution episodes. This is why Cairpol developed around its Cairsens sensors a concept of smart and autonomous stations: Cairnet. Without any maintenance nor calibration, Cairnet is a completely autonomous system energy-wised, with user friendly and efficient interface, accessible from any internet-connected device.
