laboratory testing standard Applications

  • Air monitoring for laboratories

    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

    Laboratory Weighing - Filter Weighing

    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.

  • Environmental Monitoring

    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 versatile analysis systems for many different application fields such as pollution in environmental or waste waters, monitoring nutrients in agricultural or horticultural water as well as general process control in chemistry industry. Because of the number of enviromental analysis required, there is a need for screening and monitoring measurements of these compounds at contaminated areas.

    Traditional monitoring techniques are typically based on laboratory analysis of field-collected samples that require considerable effort and expense, and the sample may change before analysis. Moreover, the equipment currently available is too large and expensive and it cannot be made portable.Alternatively, microfluidic and electrochemical sensor technologies can contribute to the development of new portable monitoring systems, complementing standard analytical methods for different environmental monitoring applications.In this way, the decentralization and integration of all those typical analyses is the paramount importance in order to reduce cost, simplify the analytical process and make more accessible these technologies to end-users. The development of portable, robust, and accurate Lab-on-a-Chip systems to monitor priority compounds such as contaminants, explosives, chemical warfare agents, inorganic and organic ions is a demand of modern society. Portability allows analyses to be carried out outside of the laboratory, minimizing the risk of contaminating the sample and leading to a faster response time at a lower cost.

    Thus, MicruX solutions and technologies open the gate to develop portable and esay-handly Lab-on-a-Chip devices in order to improve pollutants in-situ analysis in a very economic and efficient way.

    Testing Fume Hood Flow Dynamics using SF6 as a Tracer Gas

    A safe laboratory environment requires an effective method for clearing toxic material from fume hoods. Since all handling of toxic materials is completed in these hoods, it is critical to have a procedure to evaluate their operation to assure adequate protection for laboratory workers. The InfraRan Specific Vapor Analyzer, factory calibrated for SF6, is an ideal instrument for measuring fume hood efficiency in accordance with ASHRAE and other standards. Manufacturers identify the flow dynamics (factors that affect air flow in the hood and performance with air) using the ratings AM (as manufactured), AI (as installed), and AU (as used). A fume hood evaluation conducted under its operational environment is critical, as these tests will indicate any installation shortcomings as well as direct workers in proper laboratory hood techniques.

    Measurement solution for fire testing for the railway industry

    A lot of research is carried out in laboratory and on real fires as to the gaseous substances produced in fire effluent. Measurement principles using analytical instrumentation are becoming more widely used in fire testing, due to the quick, real-time nature of the measurements. ISO 19702 is an international standard developed for the use of FTIR analysers in the analysis of gas from fire effluents. Further to this, local test standards such as DIN 5510, applicable to the railway industry, can provide further requirements for gases to be measured.

    Gas monitoring instruments and systems for stack testing

    Several EU directives and national laws in European countries set requirements for continuous monitoring of flue gas emissions at power plants. Further requirements are set on the quality assurance of the installed measurement systems at the plants. The relevant standard in this regard is EN 14181:2004, the quality assurance of automated measuring systems. The standard dictates how to determine that the measurement systems installed for continuous emissions monitoring at a plant operate according to the directives and regulations set. Two major parts of this on-going quality assurance cycle are the QAL2 and AST procedures. A test laboratory performs tests on the systems on-site, and determines whether the systems fulfill the set requirements or not.

  • K&S performs Solarpark supervision in Japan to secure high quality standards

    The team of K&S technical experts perform independent technical inspections of the photovoltaic system and clarifies technical issues. The advisory service begins even before the actual construction of the photovoltaic power plant - in the design and contract review. It is ensured that all the requirements of the building permit of the relevant Japanese authorities are fulfilled and the contract is aligned with the system. Based on the continuous construction and factory acceptance tests of components, possible quality defects from the start can be reduced to an absolute minimum. With the local networks of the Japanese technology institutions such as New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), Japan Electrical Safety & Environment Technology Laboratories (JET), Japan Photovoltaic Energy Association (JPEA) and other leading technology institutions, K&S combines a comprehensive local technical advisory service in Japan.

    Application package continous casting powder 'ready to go'

    This application package is a 'ready to go' calibration kit for xrf instruments. Together with the company Stollberg, FLUXANA has developed a fused bead method for the product control of continuous casting (CC) powders. The general idea was a universal program which covers a wide product range and that is also able to control the used raw materials. The result was two different application packages each with a set of standards and a set of control samples. - Calibration set continuous casting powders prepared from CRM as glass beads - Calibration set raw materials prepared from CRM as glass beads - Calibration work performed by FLUXANA expert 2 days on site - 2x drift monitors for xrf instrument - 2x control samples for validation each 10g powder for preparation on site - Flux FX-X100 FLUXANA application packages include always the sample preparation method. All packages are running in our application laboratory. You are always free to send your samples for testing free of charge.
