  • Monitoring of Hydrogen Sulfide in Industrial Processes

    Hydrogen sulfide, H2S, is a very poisonous, corrosive, and flammable gas. As such, it needs to be carefully monitored and controlled in industrial processes where it is generated or used. At relatively low concentrations, it has an odour of rotten eggs which effectively works as a warning, but at higher concentrations where it becomes acutely toxic and even lethal, it can no longer be smelled ...

  • Gas Detection and Monitoring Systems

    In greenhouse applications, the accurate measurement of a number of environmental parameters such as carbon dioxide concentration, temperature, light intensity, water, humidity, pH and nutrient levels using sophisticated sensors is used to create a controlled environment for optimising plant growth rates while minimising energy usage. Carbon dioxide concentration is also one of the best ...

  • Planning for a Gas Monitoring System

    Do you need a gas monitoring system? Then you already know which gases you want to monitor, you probably have an idea of measurement ranges and accuracy requirements, and perhaps you have a budget for the system. But which other aspects have to be considered, and how do you actually design the system? ...

  • Stack gas VOC monitoring

    POLLUTION S.r.l. manufactures POLARIS FID analyzer, a cutting-edge technology for the measurement of total hydrocarbons in ambient air and stack emission monitoring in accordance with EN 13526 and EN 12619. This analyser is based on Flame Ionization Detection (FID), a reference method technique to measure total hydrocarbons (THC, VOC, TOC). Polaris FID is a very handy instrument because it allows ...

  • What is the difference between a gas analyser and a gas monitor?

    Technically, there does not have to be any difference at all. However, semantically, “analysis” might suggest something more scientific with higher precision and better performance than a simple “monitor” which possibly suggests a more indicative output where precision is of less importance. ...

  • Monitoring landfill gas - Case Study

    Infrared absorption Infrared absorption is usually the preferred method for measuring methane and carbon dioxide. Most gases absorb radiation in the infrared region. The wavelength of radiation that is absorbed is determined by the natural vibration frequencies of the molecule. These natural frequencies will depend on several factors. Thus different gas molecules have different natural ...

  • Green House Gas Flow Monitoring

    This article addresses the challenges and solutions to flow measurement of green house gases in various industry applications.  GHG flow monitoring regulations are discussed and addressed. Last year the EPA implemented new regulations entitled “Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gases.” The new regulations called for certain facilities emitting 25,000 metric tons or more per year ...

  • The latest ground Gas monitoring innovations

    The latest Ground Gas monitoring innovations   The traditional methodology for ground gas monitoring has been ‘spot monitoring’ – taking event readings at various set times to predict the sub surface gas regime on both on Brownfield and Landfill sites.     This methodology is in general current practice under both the EU Landfill Directive ...

  • Laser gas detector systems for greenhouse gas emissions monitoring

    Two types of portable laser based gas detector for measuring emissions of the greenhouse gases carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) from oil and gas operations are described. A scanning open path detector was developed within a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the USEPA. This system scans multiple paths across an area source in rapid succession, enabling calculation ...

  • Monitoring Multiple Gas Hazards in Ice Arenas

    The equipment used in an arena such as an ice re-surfacer, ice edger, floor sweepers, lift trucks and other special equipment are more often powered by fuel than electricity. The exhaust produced by the gas, propane or diesel fuel powered machines emits, into the air, carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and particulates. Ammonia (NH3) is commonly used in the ice chiller mechanical room ...

  • Water Use in the Mining Industry

    Freshwater resources are protected as industry begins to put emphasis on sustainability The mining industry has a great impact on water resources, both depleting water supplies with high usage and polluting them with discharges or seepage from tailings or waste rock impoundments. ...

  • Gas Monitoring for Ventilation Control and Energy Management

    The growing demand for underground and enclosed parking and maintenance garages (resulting from limitations on land availability) has increased the awareness and need for proper ventilation and control systems. In addition, increased health and safety programs have only added to the concerns of toxic and combustible gases in confined or enclosed spaces. Historically, ventilation and make-up air ...

  • Gas Monitor Bump Testing vs Calibration

    We are often asked to explain the difference between calibrations and bump testing. This is a controversial subject. OHS would have you do a full calibration before each use. In practice, our customers come up with their own intervals. If the gas monitor is used infrequently, say once a month, it should be calibrated every time to give you confidence that the unit is going to respond as it ...

  • Electrochemical Sensors for Specific Gas PPM Monitoring

    Echem sensors are able to read a specific gas even when it is mixed in a background of other gases. Echem sensors are typically used to read very low PPM concentrations of toxic gases. The Echem sensor consists of a small cell holding an electrolytic solution. This solution needs a specific gas in order to produce an electrical signal. When the specific gas passes through a permeable membrane and ...

  • Wastewater Treatment Plant Monitors Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    Globally, little attention is paid to gaseous emissions from wastewater treatment processes. This contrasts greatly with the regulatory monitoring that is applied to the quality of water emissions from such facilities. However, in Helsinki, Finland, a large municipal wastewater treatment facility continuously monitors its emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) to help in the city’s efforts to ...

  • Photodegradation of 4-chloronitrobenzene in the presence of aqueous titania suspensions in different gas atmospheres

    The photocatalytic degradation of 4-chloronitrobenzene (4-CNB) was carried out using Degussa P25 TiO2 as photocatalyst in three different gas atmospheres: nitrogen, oxygen, and ozone. The total organic carbon (TOC) and inorganic anions including chloride, nitrite, and nitrate anions were measured to monitor the mineralization processes, while the degradation of 4-CNB and the formation of ...
