Traffic means mobility and air emissions. Thanks to economical advantages, diesel engine becomes more and more popular, but particle emission is strictly restricted by regulations. Determining the weight of particulate matter (PM) is a key task in the automotive industry and one which is likely to become even more important as emissions standards become stricter. To allow fast and easy measurement of particulate matter at any time, METTLER TOLEDO has developed new filter weighing solutions.
Triboelectric dust probes installed in the clean gas duct after bag filters, cartridge filters or centrifugal separators (cyclones) are used to detect faulty, damaged or leaking filters. This early detection of failures minimises product loss, improves environmental conditions and problematic dust emissions.
Benefits include low initial outlay, no consumables and low maintenance requirements.
There are more than 10,000 Dr. Foedisch filter monitor devices installed worldwide in the food processing, cement,...
Maintain specification in your process stream or bench top setup with a Cerex process analyzer. Cerex UV3000 F Series analyzers accurately detect gases from ppb level to percent level concentrations via a fiber coupled probe for precise control of a process stream. The F series are also well suited to fiber couple to a custom cell for laboratory analysis, and feature user programmable alarm levels to control process functions or give warning when a process filter needs replacement. Cerex analyzers are also...
Context & Challenges Globally, the wastewater treatment is the first public health issue. Urban development leads to urbanization near waste water treatment plant and extension of sewerage network. These aspects induce to an augmentation of sulfur compounds (H2S, mercaptans and sulfides) which are very corrosive, odorant and toxic. To monitor this compounds online CHROMATOTEC® offers high meteorological solutions. As a result of the confinement of the waste water stations, toxic components such as H2S and...
The frequency and intensity of dust and sand storms in many parts of the world are steadily increasing due to droughts and climate change. The severity of such storms is anticipated to increase over the coming years.
These dust storms may last hours or days and cause huge damage and imposed a heavy toll on society with its physical effects, such as visibility reduction, heavy winds, red sky, hailstone and severe lightning.
Such Dust storms, have a negative impact on human health, and industrial products and...
Most industrial processes have dust collectors of some form or other, the most popular being filter bag houses. Very few of these are covered by regulation other than to have a broken bag detector to prevent nuisance dusts escaping and creating a local nuisance. The CODEL StakGard is a low cost Tribo-electric monitor that directly measures mass particulate concentration by sensing the frictional charge created when particles collide with a conductor. The advanced electronics of the StakGard detect this signal and...
To estimate the effects of aerosols on health and climate, it is essential to know their chemical composition. Sampling is done using two different types of aerosol collector. The first type are filter collectors that are based on the deposition of suspended particles on surfaces; the second type are powerful aerosol collectors.
Urban air pollution is a major environmental problem in the developing countries of the world. That`s why to monitor the air quality becomes fundamental to define the air pollution level and take important measures to improve the air quality.
Ahlstrom offers a high performance filter media for Air Quality Monitoring. A filter media made of extremely pure micro-quartz fibers, appropriate for emission control at high temperatures and wherever absolute purity of the filter medium is required.
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
Problem: Nitrate, the most stable form of nitrogen in water, is found in both ground and surface water and originates from both natural and anthropogenic sources. Due to its high solubility in water, nitrate is not filtered out from groundwater like other contaminants. Removing nitrates from source water is important as elevated levels in drinking water can cause serious health effects when ingested.
InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers allow for TPH (Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons) in soil testing at remediation sites such as leaking underground storage tanks and produced water evaporation ponds. Site managers can avoid having costly soil remediation equipment sit idle while waiting for off-site lab results. Sampling requires a few simple steps that can be performed by non-technical personnel. The soil is mixed with the extraction solvent, shaken, filtered, and then presented to the InfraCal Analyzer for measurement....

OPSIS provides real-time, flexible monitoring of particulate matter in the ambient air. Particulate matter monitoring with OPSIS, is a cost-effective solution, is ideally suited for use in modern monitoring stations. It can be remote controlled and includes automatic calibration, features that frees time. The SM200 meets the new regulation for automatic monitoring of PM10 and PM2.5. It also meets the new regulation for particulate matter sampling on filter membranes for further analysis of cadmium, nickel, PAH...
The monitoring of Turbidity is key requirement of the water industry in both water supply and water recovery systems. Within the water supply process, monitoring of turbidity allows operators to assess the efficiency of filters for particulate removal through the process. Similarly, with water recovery (Waste Water Treatment Works), the measurement of turbidity is a key parameter to track the removal of particulate through the process. CTG can provide turbidity measurements with the UniLux sensor, or provides...
Sampling dust and particulate matter is important as dust and particulate matter can affect the health of human populations, as well as the natural environment. Dust and particulate matter can cause respiratory problems when breathed in by humans. Dust and particulates above 10 micrometer (PM10) are filtered and generally do not enter the lungs.
NH3 (Ammonia) is a colorless gas with a distinctive pungent smell. Ammonia monitoring is essential in coal-fired power plants, where NH3 is used to reduce NOx emissions. The ammonia consumes all of the NOx, but its high concentration that is needed for these purposes also starts reacting with other things and in the process can clog up filters and cause premature failure of expensive SCR equipment and pre-heaters. Not to mention that these high levels create an irreparable damage to the environment.
With the Aqua M300 leak detectors have a multifunctional tool to Pinpoint or Pre-locate leakages and to trace pipes in conjunction with a PWG.
The biggest advantage compared to other related products are the 256 analogue and digital filters which enables the user to shut off disturbing noises very precisely. Also the extension for H2 tracer gas comes without competition and makes this device a essential tool for leak detectors.
