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.
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...
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.
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
Emission monitoring plays critical roles in a number of diverse industrial processes. AMETEK Land provides expert solutions to support product quality, process efficiency and safety. Our industry-leading gas monitors deliver essential data for industry sectors including metals, non-wovens, paper and plastics.
Measurement of mercury content in hair is a convenient technique to estimate dietary exposure without having to handle tissues or bodily fluids. As the mercury present in hair is comprised of different mercury species, full speciation of the compounds is needed for complete understanding. Environment Canada published a technique where treating a basic digestion with Cd2+ in the presence of cysteine allowed analysis of inorganic mercury and total mercury using a Tekran 2600 System. Methyl mercury was then calculated...
Sewer Meters monitor sewage level and flow within the sewers. Benefits gained by sewer monitoring include:
(1) Detection of overflow conditions before overflow occurs thereby preventing hazardous environmental events.
(2) Detection of blocked sewer pipes, allowing quick and focused maintenance thereby reducing maintenance costs.
(3)Detection of over-used and under-used pipes for long term municipal planning.
(4) Monitoring of sewage flow in sensitive sites such as flow to the river or sea.
(5) Estimation of...
Mercury, being widespread in environment, has toxic effect on a human organism even at a low concentration. Therefore, quantitativ e determination of mercury in vari ous environments is one of the most important environmental monitoring problems. The use of a mercury analyzer RA-915M/RA-915+/RA- 915Light with Zeeman background correction provides di rect real-time continuous determination of mercury in air from 0.5 ng/m 3 within the overall possible range of me rcury concentration in ambient air.
Typical supported applications are industrial emission monitoring and gas manufacturing control. Focuses on medium NOx, NOx-related and multigas-concentrations up to 5’000 ppm where flexibility is a central requirement. Parameters included are NO, NO2, NOx, NH3, NOx-amines, O2 and CO2. Typical supported applications are industrial emission monitoring and gas manufacturing control.
The chloride process of titanium dioxide (TiO2) pigment manufacture first converts titania-containing ores to TiCl4 via a carbochlorination reaction at a high temperature in a chlorinator in the presence of chlorine gas and petroleum coke added as a reductant.
The TD-4100 utilizes a non-fouling, non-contact flow cell which requires little to no maintenance, and uses fluorescence technology to accurately detect oil in water from low ppb to high ppm. For this application, the TD-4100 monitors oil in water at 1 to 5 ppm and signals an operator with an alarm when the concentration exceeds the high alarm relay set-point.

The pumps range from being manually operated to versatile units with sophisticated dosing programs. Capable of speed, accuracy and the easy to use pump range are perfect for dispensing delicate, viscous, corrosive, shear sensitive or abrasive fluids. Dispensing flows from a few ml/min up to 17 l/min* Dosing accuracy of ±0.5%.
The Township of South Glengarry installs a new Greyline AVFM 5.0 Area-Velocity Flow Meter to measure continuous discharge from their municipal sewage lagoon. The sealed ultrasonic sensor is mounted in a horizontal 12` PVC pipe. The AVFM replaced a magnetic flowmeter that was unable to measure seasonal low flow rates.
A number of industries such as automotive parts (e.g. engine blocks, air bags, etc.), medical equipment (e.g. catheters) and food packaging rely on various verification tests to ensure that such critical parts are leak proof. Industrial leak testing benefits from high speed and excellent repeatability offered by the Axetris mass flow meters. Axetris leak tester customers call it “fast repeatability”.
Spectral irradiance is the irradiance of a surface per unit frequency or wavelength. spectral irradiance of a wavelength spectrum is measured per watts per square metre per nanometre (W·m−2·nm−1). Spectroradiometers are devices designed to measure the spectral power distribution of a source. From the spectral power distribution, the radiometric, photometric, and colorimetric quantities of light can be determined in order to measure, characterize, and calibrate light sources for various...
