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.
The term groundwater is used to describe the water that has infiltrated the surface of the earth and formed underground lakes that are referred to as aquifers. Groundwater monitoring consists of taking water quality and water level data, which are plotted and used to monitor changes in trends over time.
Determination of the pH value provides information about the acid or base action of the soil solution. This in turn is enormously important for the nutrient supply and microbial activity of the soil. For example, many metals (trace elements) are considerably more mobile in acidic soils. If the soil pH values are very low, toxic levels can soon be reached and these can damage the roots of plants. On the other hand, excessively high pH values quickly lead to a shortage of trace elements because of immobilization.

The reasons for testing water quality in groundwater are numerous. Monitoring water quality and conducting tests is a good way to gather data on aquifer hydraulics. It can also be used to monitor parameters such as rhodamine, which helps to understand movement of underground water. Human activities can have an impact on groundwater quality, and conducting tests in this field can help to track these effects. Leachate from landfill and fertiliser can both find their way into groundwater. It is important to monitor...
Groundwater hydrology is an interpretive science: we can’t observe the aquifers directly so we must interpolate and extrapolate our understanding from water-level measurements taken from observation wells. Stevens has expertise for measuring both water quantity and water quality.
Fresh water is one of the planets most critical resources essential to all land based life
It is also one of the planets most rapidly diminishing resources. Conservation and protection of existing supplies and the rehabilitation of degraded sources are one of the most urgent problems facing humanity today.
Many fresh water sources have been degraded to toxic levels by the inclusion of industrial, agricultural, and human waste products that have been discharged into the closest body of water, accidentally or deliberately for many years.
With an intelligent flat you and your roofer have all the information needed to do maintenane and repairs in time. A smartex-Monitoring-Box supplies you with current information about the function of your roof and the buildings physics inside the construction in real time. With any PC at home or in your office or with a mobile device on site – You always have access to the data you need. If a damage occurs, you are informed immediately.
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....
All construction affects groundwater and a water management plan will be required.
From deforestation to urbanisation, from holes to heaps and dams to drains, they all have an affect on the groundwater.
Deforestation causes an increase in the rate of run off of rainwater resulting in lower percolation of precipitation into the soil and a consequent increase in soil erosion leading to slope instability, hence land and mud slides. The increased rate of run off can cause small streams and large rivers to rise and...
