Environmental monitoring is becoming more important every day in local, national and international policies, showing the environmental awareness demanded by society.
This fact gives rise to an increase in the amount of legislation that obliges companies to law enforcement. Thus, the necessity of making more pollutants controls means high analysis expenses to the companies, which need to subcontract this service.
Although applications in this area advance, there is still a clear demand to get new portable and...
The list of potential explosive threats is much greater and more varied than ever before. Extremist groups the world over continue to find new ways to develop improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and homemade explosive devices (HMEs) using creative and often unexpected deployment methods. To keep pace with these evolving threats, today’s first responders, bomb disposal units, civilian support teams and military require expanded capabilities for rapid threat detection, identification and monitoring at the...

The determination of oxygen in hydrogen is a safety critical measurement to keep the hydrogen mixture below explosion limits during chlorine electrolysis. AppliTek’s analyzer system is engineered to detect oxygen in an early stage and safeguard the compression process, with a small footprint allowing easy integration in any production site.
The purpose of fast determination of oxygen in wet chlorine is twofold: verification and control of membrane oxygen permeation, as well as to keep control of the oxygen-chlorine-ethylene explosion triangle. The technology behind AppliTek’s analyzer system for the fast determination of oxygen in wet chlorine is qualified as Best Available Technology (BAT) as defined by US Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act, as well as European directive 96/61/EC.
Fast determination of hydrogen in dry chlorine provides an early warning system against elevated levels of hydrogen, thereby protecting the chlorine production plant against hydrogen explosion incidents. AppliTek’s analyzer system for fast determination of hydrogen in dry chlorine can be considered as Best Available Technology (BAT). However, it can never replace a system for determination of hydrogen in wet chlorine since it meets other needs in process control than those for wet chlorine. Even a tiny...
The purpose of fast determination of oxygen in dry chlorine is to verify the chlorine oxygen specifications, as well as to keep control of the oxygen-chlorine-ethylene explosion triangle. The technology behind AppliTek’s analyzer system for the fast determination of oxygen in wet chlorine is qualified as Best Available Technology (BAT) as defined by US Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act, as well as European directive 96/61/EC.
The purpose of fast determination of hydrogen in wet chlorine is to set up an early warning system against high hydrogen levels, thereby protecting the chlorine production plant against hydrogen explosion incidents. The hydrogen concentration in wet chlorine is very critical, especially for membrane and diaphragm cell type production of chlorine. A breakthrough of hydrogen in the chlorine by membrane or diaphragm damage can occur within a few seconds. Depending on the concentration, a mixture of H2 and Cl2 gas...

Liquefied natural gas owners require improved routine monitoring of facilities for safety, economic and regulatory reasons. Leaking LNG can cause explosions leading to loss of life and property. Loss of product through undetected leaks dramatically reduces a pipeline operator’s profitability. Traditional gas detectors are slow to reach and require a labour intensive process to keep maintained. IR detectors have been used but with limited success because of cross interference from other atmospheric gases.
Our range of safety analysers can offer early detection of fire / explosive conditions. From CO monitors for pulverising coal mills through to UV flame and smoke detectors installed on oil rigs and the cross-channel passenger shuttles, operated by Eurotunnel.
The worse event that can befall on off shore oil rig is fire. The Model 125 is a smoke monitor designed to operate in hazardous areas, especially in oil rig air conditioning and ventilation ducts. The electronics are contained in an explosion proof container rated as EEX de II B T5; the sensing head uses fibre optic cables to transmit the near infra-red light to a reflector where it is returned to another fibre optic cable. The light level is then monitored by a photo-electric cell. The Model 125 gives an output...
Nitric acid HNO3 is an important intermediate reagent for production of several important end products, such as fertilizers, explosives, dyestuffs/pigments, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, photographic materials, plastics, and synthetic fibers. At nitric acid manufacturing plants, the Gasmet™ FTIR Gas Analyzer can be used to measure several gaseous components from the process stream for purposes of process control. A single system can be used to measure the high levels of nitrogen monoxide NO and nitrogen...

Forensic labs are improving throughput and eliminating backlog by using DART. Presentation of sample and standards is routine and requires just seconds per sample to determine quantity and quality of seized narcotics and OTC drugs of abuse. Synthetic cannabinoids and bath salts are easily detected and identified with confirmation using simple mass spectrometry methods and comparison with NIST library standards. Explosives, arson, counterfeit currency, tax stamps and even drugs in body fluids present no problem...
The pressure sensors in mining equipment must be robust, reliable and accurate. STS solutions can be found in hydraulic monitoring, pressure and temperature measurements in explosion endangered zones, and groundwater monitoring.
