  • The Need to Clearly State the Reference Temperature and Pressure Conditions when Reporting Gas Volumes or Volumetric Flow Rates

    In the physical sciences, such as chemistry, the standard temperature and pressure (STP) is a set of conditions for experimental measurements that enables true comparisons between sets of da-ta representing gas volumes. There are many different definitions of standard temperatures and pressures applicable to gas volumes and volumetric flow rates. The differences depend on the organization ...

  • Indoor air quality in industrial environments

    Indoor air quality in industrial environments has often been neglected in the light of production imperatives. However, the impact of this pollution is now demonstrated on the well-being productivity of employees. These pollutants become, in addition, harmful in the long run. Indoor air pollution is often much more important than outdoor air. Faced with this, new technical solutions exist to ...

  • ‘New for old’ dust analyser deal brings 96.66% data capture rates to NE Lincs

    With the UK’s largest port and the industrial town of Grimsby in its jurisdiction, air quality monitoring is a primary concern for North East Lincolnshire Borough Council. When DEFRA reported that the TEOM dust analysers the council relied on weren’t up to standard, rapid action was required and Enviro Technology (ET) stepped in with its BAM 1020s. North East Lincolnshire is the ...

  • Smart compressed air measurement - Case Study

    Air may be free, but compressed air certainly isn’t. Every day, leaks and inefficient compressors cost companies money and lead to more electricity usage. As air  compressors churn away 24/7, endlessly maintaining the air pressure in compressed air distribution lines, dollars leak away from the bottom line. Measuring compressed air can be a big challenge. In many manufacturing ...

  • Measuring Ventilation in Industrial/Commercial Buildings

    Methods of Measuring Air Movement in an Industrial/Commercial Building There are two primary methods of measuring air movement in an industrial/commercial building. The most obvious is to actually measure all the supply points and exhaust points in the building. Compiling that information can lead to calculations of air changes per hour (ACH) which can be compared to recommended levels ...

  • Air pollution and the influence of sources on Paulinia (Brazil) and surroundings

    The air quality in the industrial area and surroundings of the city of Paulinia (state of Sao Paulo, Brazil) has been investigated by analysing the concentration of air pollutants (SO2, PM10, NO, NO2, CO and ozone) and identifying the main sources of air pollution.
