    Surface Water Quality Testing for the Environmental Monitoring Industry

    We have a wide range of water testing equipment that is used to record trends across different water quality parameters in water bodies such as streams, lakes and rivers, as well as in seawater. Understanding these trends means that when there is a change it could be an early warning that there is a pollutant in the water or there has been a change in the aquatic ecosystem. Early detection is necessary to put mitigating measures in place.

    Our parameters are wide ranging, although the most commonly measured in surface water testing and monitoring are dissolved oxygen, pH, electrical conductivity and temperature, which are standard on most Aquaprobes. If you require specific parameters to be tested, there is the option to add additional parameters.

    Mercury monitoring for mercury flux measurement

    The Tekran 2537 has been used in numerous published studies to measure the deposition or evasion of mercury from natural or contaminated surfaces (i.e. flux measurements). It is anticipated that many mercury flux measurements will be needed in the future to assess the impact of climate change on mercury cycling in the environment. There are two basic ways to do mercury flux measurements. First, the dynamic flux chamber method utilizes a custom enclosure, with controlled air flow, to measure the inlet and outlet concentration over a selected surface to determine the flux over time. Alternatively, the micrometeorological gradient method uses measured concentrations at two levels above a surface. The perfect tool for both flux measurement methods is the Tekran 1110 Two Port Sampler, so the Tekran 2537 can automatically switch between two distinct sampling points. Ask us how we can help you setup a mercury flux system.

    Noise monitoring solutions for sound intensity mapping

    Sound Intensity is the measure of acoustic energy passing through a unit area. By integrating over a surface enclosing an object under test, you can calculate the object`s sound power. This can be done regardless of background noise, allowing convenient, in situ measurements of sound power. Other advantages of sound intensity measurements include the ability to determine the directionality of sound, and to quickly localise noise `hot spots`. Mapping software takes this a stage further by providing you with a contour map of noise levels to provide intuitive documentation of noise problems.

    Gas monitoring instruments and systems for greenhouse gas emissions from soil

    Measurement of greenhouse gases released from soil and water surface forms an important part of climate change study. Microbial activity in the soil or for instance the melting of permafrost releases greenhouse gases such as Methane and nitrous oxide N2O into the atmosphere. Measurement of the concentration for these gases inside an open-bottom soil chamber placed on the soil over time tells the emission rate (flux) per chamber footprint area.

    High quality gas sensor solutions for mining

    Fast, accurate and reliable measurement of CH4. The extraction of coal releases methane gas, which can mix with the air in a mine to form a hazard due to its flammability. Ventilation with fresh air from the surface is used to dilute the methane and reduce the risk of explosion. Monitoring of the methane content of the stale air exiting the mine allows the amount of ventilation to be controlled. Although our sensors are not ATEX approved for use in potentially explosive atmospheres they are suitable for monitoring air containing methane concentrations below the lower explosive limit. Our OEM products can be built into equipment which is approved for use in the monitoring of mine exhaust gas and similar applications.

  • Metrology for the photovoltaics industry

    Quality control to maximize efficiency is critical in the competitive photovoltaic industry. For some time solar texture has been thought to qualitatively affect solar cell efficiency. However, through large-area, 3D measurements and areal feature parameters, quantitative correlation of texture to efficiency has only recently been obtained. We now know that ISO 3D surface parameters linearly correlate with solar cell efficiency.

  • Microbial testing in upstream oil & gas industry

    On-the-spot measurement of total microorganisms! Microbial growth can be a significant nuisance in the upstream oil and gas sector. Well drilling, completion and stimulation activities can introduce microbes into a producing formation. Microbes found in the near well bore of producing wells can impede inflow, corrode tubulars and pumps and sour the formation. At the surface, production problems associated with microbial infection include corrosion and fouling of wellheads, pipelines, heater treaters, separators and storage tanks and bullets. The best solution to these problems is early detection and treatment.
