  • The benefits of monitoring compressed air

    Compressed air is used in many manufacturing processes for many different reasons, from the actuation and control of pneumatic valves and cylinders to the operation of process machinery and tooling. It can also be used as a transport medium for bulk materials or as a purge gas. For all its uses it is nonetheless expensive. This is why, through detailed monitoring, a business can enjoy the ...

  • How conditions affect cookies and air pollution control solutions

    Chocolate chip cookies are one of my favorite treats. Butter, sugar, eggs, flour, vanilla, and, of course, chocolate chips. Combine the ingredients together and you get a delicious cookie. Somehow, using the same ingredients the cookies do not always turn out the same. Sometimes they are thinner and crispier. Other times, they are soft and chewy. After watching cooking shows, I have come to ...

We want to share those stories through ...

  • Data Centre CRAC unit efficiency improvements

    One of the main types of project Munters look at is energy efficiency improvements within the thermal management side. One of the easiest changes that can be made is swapping out the old AC powered motors for EC powered impellors. the reductions in energy is considerable, with some older belt drive unit changes measuring a saving of over 60% this is due to the design of the new impellors and the ...

  • Real-time air emissions monitoring

    Due to increasingly rigorous requirements for regulatory and permit compliance, organizations are seeking more from all compliance support systems. The ability to expand systems to encompass new, or migrate existing, regulatory calculations used to monitor environmental performance is vital. Planning strategically for a scalable and sustainable system has been shown to reduce overall compliance ...

  • The ‘ins and outs’ of air quality monitoring

    The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recently issued draft guidance on ‘Air pollution - outdoor air quality and health.’ In the following article Jim Mills, Managing Director of Air Monitors Ltd, explains why there will need to be more funding for monitoring if the mitigation measures mentioned in the guidance are to be implemented effectively. Jim also ...

  • 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 ...

  • Basewide Monitoring & Innovative Remedial Systems Beale Air Force Base

    Basewide Monitoring and Innovative Remedial Systems Project Description Facing a twofold problem involving highly contaminated soil and groundwater in a sensitive habitat area, the Environmental Restoration Team at Beale Air Force Base designed a habitat enhancing solution to stop contamination from degrading groundwater and a stream in the area. In 1995, the U.S. Air Force discovered ...

  • The challenges and benefits of local air quality monitoring

    A new generation of air quality monitors is now being offered to provide localised, real-time air quality readings – but the potential benefit is only just starting to be realised. It is generally accepted that whilst measurements from air quality reference stations are highly accurate, they are not sufficiently location-specific. Key pollutants – such as NO2 and PM2.5 ...

  • Double benefit of monitoring Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

    It is a difficult balance to save money and energy yet maintain a comfortable and healthy indoor air environment. A logical solution to controlling indoor air pollution is good ventilation coupled with IAQ monitoring using gas sensors. This can ensure healthy indoor air as well as a more efficient HVAC system.  Typical IAQ investigation and examination consists of taking single-point ...

  • Air Pressure Monitoring for a Chemical Fume Hood

    CAS DataLoggers recently provided the pressure and temperature datalogging solution to a manufacturer using a chemical fume hood to protect workers by containing vapors, dusts, gases, and fumes, and then expelling them as air flowed into the hood from the front (open) side of the cabinet and then out via the ducted hood exhaust system. Designed for 2 operators, the fume hood had a Fiberglas ...

  • Rough set-based regionalisation in air quality monitoring

    Regionalisation is to organise a large set of spatial objects into spatially contiguous regions despite optimising the homogeneity of the derived regions, while representing social and economic geography. To confront this problem, it is necessary to classify the regions to form groups that are homogeneous in air quality attributes. It is to develop a system that applies data mining techniques to ...

  • Split Air to Air System at a City Library

    The City of Mountain View is located in the San Francisco Bay Area and has a population of about 75,000 persons. The City has an aggressive goal to reduce its energy consumption. Realizing that the electricity used for air conditioning represents a large portion of its total electricity usage, the City engaged Power Knot to help reduce the consumption of energy. The City asked Power Knot to ...

  • Is the Rotameter Ready for Retirement in Air Sampling/Monitoring Applications?

    The variable area rotameter has been the primary tool utilized for determination of flowrates passing through the air circuitry pathway of air sampling or air monitoring systems for many years. In air sampling applications a pollutant is captured on a collection medium (filter paper, charcoal cartridge, etc.) and taken to a laboratory for determination of the quantity of pollutant on the ...

  • Designing and Implementing Perimeter Air Monitoring Programs

    Perimeter or fenceline ambient air quality and meteorological monitoring programs have become increasingly valuable at hazardous waste, landfill, dredging, ports, and MGP remediation sites. Air quality monitoring programs protect public health and reduce owner liability ...

  • Multi-Stage Air Quality Monitoring in the Workplace

    CAS DataLoggers recently supplied the environmental datalogging solution for a factory with a small series of office rooms experiencing serious air quality issues. Employees reported headaches during the work day, indicating a possible lack of adequate ventilation. These workspaces were located next to the busy factory floor which caused an incidental ...

  • Status of black carbon monitoring in ambient air in Europe

    Black carbon (BC) is increasingly discussed in science and environmental policy areas as an example of an air pollutant that affects both human health and contributes to climate change (e.g. WHO, 2012; UNEP/WMO, 2011; Bond et al., 2013; IPCC, 2013). In order to be able to make comparable measurements of BC in ambient air and to relate BC monitoring to health impacts and climate change it is ...

  • Air Separation Plants and the Use of Oxygen Monitors

    Air separation plants are critical for many different industries, from clean energy to manufacturing. Nowadays, cryogenic is the most common type of distillation used to separate air into its component gases - nitrogen, oxygen, and inert gases including helium and argon. If your industry relies on air separation for product development or manufacturing, then knowing how the process works is ...
