    Tunnel solutions for the visibility monitor

    The TunnelTech 101 Visibility Monitor (VIS), is an essential part of any road or rail tunnel safety system. It monitors the Visibility within the tunnel and ensures that the tunnel ventilation system provides sufficient clean air for drivers to clearly see the road ahead. The TunnelTech 102 Cold smoke monitor (CSM detects smoke from a fire to rapidly warn the operator of the hazard. Secondly, used in combination with other TunnelTech 101 VIS monitors, the operator can quickly detect the locus of the fire if it is also equipped with the optional PT 101 temperature sensor to accurately measure ambient air temperature in a range of -15 to 1050C.

  • Haze Monitoring

    The principle cause of regional and urban haze, or visibility impairment, is light extinction caused by fine particles, sulfates, organic and elemental carbon, nitrates and crustal matter. Particles between 0.1 and one micrometers in size are most effective at scattering light, in addition to being of greatest concern for human health.

  • Dust monitoring and Sand Storm Monitoring

    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 activities. They reduce visibility, layer on skin and cloths, infiltrate buildings and find their way into food and drinking water leaving a permanent sandy feeling in your mouth. Traditional dust monitoring instruments whether they be purely filter based gravimetric samplers or continuous monitors utilising Tapered Element Oscillating Microbalance (TEOM) or Beta Attenuation (BAM) simply are unable to cope with the high dust loads created by these storms. The filters on these instruments are quickly clogged and no further measurements are possible until a service technician visits to replace filters and filter tapes. In dust storm events this is impossible. Therefore, over the past few years a need for alternate technology which are non filter based, can cope with extremely high dust loads, require minimal maintenance and can operate off solar power has been employed in regions such as the Gobi Desert of China for the continuous monitoring of dust storm events. These instruments have demonstrated that an instrument can measure dust storm events with maintenance performed only once every 12 months. That it is possible to communicate remotely and that these systems can not only provide an early warning for dust events but have the accuracy and sensitivity to be an extremely useful tool in gauging hourly changes of visibility. Infact such instruments have been utilised by a number of EPAs around the world, including all Australian EPAs for the purpose of measuring ambient visibility as well as providing an accurate indication of rising dust events.

    Tunnel solutions for the gaseous pollutants

    The TunnelTech 200 series are primarily gas monitors with optional Visibility capability. Most use Infra-red absorption technology to monitor gaseous pollutants and those with a visibility channel use optical attenuation for that application. All TunnelTech 200 analysers except the TunnelTech 205 use the same rugged corrosion resistant enclosures and have an optional Data Display unit. As there is only one moving part so reliability levels are very high and maintenance levels very low.

    Gas monitoring instruments and systems for titanium dioxide

    Titanium dioxide is the most important white pigment used in the polymer industry. It is widely used, because it efficiently scatters visible light, thereby imparting whiteness, brightness, and opacity when incorporated into a plastic product.

  • Example of GPR application on fresh water reservoir

    GPR exploration of fresh water reservoirs allows user to examine in details the bottom. The important feature of GPR use that is to be mentioned - it can examine the structure of the bottom. I.e. there is possible to find underwater items located inside the bottom stratum. Also GPR can provide an information about the thickness of bottom silt or bottom ground, and its volume structure. The same exploration is very problematic if made by other means. In the summer 2012 VIY3-300 GPR was examined as sub-bottom profiler. The tests were made in Kyiv, Ukraine. GPR was placed in a plastic tub and moved across the surface of the fresh water lake. The survey window number of 166 ns corresponds to the depth of 2.7 meters. The signal reflected from the bottom is clearly visible on the profile. Compensation of the signal attenuation along increasing depth reached 60 dB. That indicates the water condition in an urban area.

  • Smoke generator device for leak testing & building envelope testing

    Smoke is the perfect medium for discovering where leaks are and how big they are! Filling a `leaky` building, ductwork, pipes, aircraft or containment area with smoke and ideally adding a small amount of pressure to the area being tested, will result in a visible discharge of smoke and, simply put, the greater the volume of smoke, the bigger the leak. After Concept developed a bespoke system for their aircraft testing requirements, a spokesperson for the RAF commented: `The use of smoke as a means by which to detect cabin pressurisation leaks has been shown to be extremely effective and is unquestionably superior to any alternative detection method used to date!`

  • Smoke generator device for large scale external exercises and tunnel testing

    Making smoke in a very open environment or external environment can be a challenging! An oil-based smoke generator, such as a ViCount system, can produce dramatically more artificial smoke than multiple water based systems. This is due to the fact that the smoke ViCounts produce, being oil-based, does not evaporate in the same way and speed that water-based smoke does. The smoke from a ViCount smoke generator will travel for 1000`s of meters, compared to a typical water based smoke machine that may produce a smoke visible for 100 meters. Just one ViCount or Vulcan can replace 10 or more conventional water based smoke systems. ViCount`s have been used world wide for many tunnel smoke simulations, be it for RTA training / evacuation exercises or tunnel ventilation testing.

    Tunnel solutions for the extractive areas

    In some countries they do not allow tunnel atmosphere monitors to be mounted on the tunnel wall; also, where there is a single bore it is very difficult to gain access for maintenance purposes. The TunnelTech 400 series are extractive gaseous pollutant and visibility monitors and extract a gas and dust sample from the tunnel bore and carry to a remote analyser. This allows maintenance to take place without affecting tunnel traffic flow.
