  • Mind the bandgap | A temperature profiling technology comparison

    When it comes down to determining temperature in environmental media, there are many options—from fiber-optic to infrared sensing technologies—to observe and quantify the relative kinetic energy of a material. For single point data acquisition and a given specific temperature range and target medium, of course certain technologies are more optimal than others.  When it comes to ...

  • An experimental method to estimate the temperature of individual nanowires

    In this paper, the authors present an effective experimental method to estimate the temperature of individual metal oxide nanowires that can be used to quantify the heating produced in conductometric or other operating conditions. The here-proposed method is based on the analysis of the recovery time of the nanowire's resistance after exposure to a gas pulse (0.5 ppm of NO2 in dry air). It is ...

  • Typical Sensor Location Considerations

    The sensor mounting location within a space may be dependent on many variables. There are no specific formulas since each application will have it’s own determining factors and priorities. These include, but are not limited to: source of gas: Is the source a combustion exhaust from a vehicle or furnace or a vapour from a tank spill, pipe leak, or faulty valve? density of ...

  • The Fundamentals of the Air Sampler Calibration-Verification Process

    INTRODUCTION The calibration of an air sampling instrument using a reference air flow calibrator requires attention to scientific detail in order to establish that the instrument’s reported values are correctly stated and valid under the actual operating conditions of the air sampling instrument. DEFINITIONS For the purposes of this ...

  • Ultrasonic Sensors: Range Vs Frequency

    Ultrasonic sensors are pretty cool. Transducers send and receive waves, measurements magically get spit out by the sensor, and nothing had to touch anything, right? You can choose sensors based on range, or type of transducer, or even safety ratings. Most sensors declare their range and frequency together, which seems kind of odd. Why is the range of an ultrasonic sensor tied to its frequency? ...

  • Multiple Instruments Work Together for a Better View of Air Quality

    Accurately identifying and quantifying particulate matter (PM) in the atmosphere is key to determining air quality. Researchers are particularly interested in PM that have a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometers because they are believed to contribute to heart and lung disease in humans and animals. These tiny particles are invisible to the naked eye and originate from power plants, fires, and ...

  • Mining Emissions Effectively Monitored with Micro Pulse LiDAR Technology

    Mining operations include blasting, excavating, scraping, and sifting large amounts of dirt. These activities create dust and other emissions that are transported by air currents to surrounding areas. It is easy to say that dangerous particulate matter (PM) generated by mining should be monitored and kept to a minimum; however, it is very challenging to measure the levels of contaminants in the ...

  • Smart cities risk reputation with poor air quality data

    The team at AQMesh continue to receive many enquiries from smart city initiatives and are concerned that integrators risk undermining entire projects by distributing meaningless or misleading air quality information. “Many of the people I speak to are used to dealing with sensors that are easy to ‘plug and play’ and expect to be able to do the same with air quality sensors. This ...

  • 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 ...

  • Does Your Ultrasonic Sensor Need Maintenance?

    Maintenance is important, but it’s often hard to quantify. How much time does maintenance take? How often does your system need it? Does maintaining one part necessitate a complete system shut down? What does that represent in lost income because your system is not making product? Maintenance is important, but minimizing maintenance is even more important. Maintenance is also important for ...

  • Optimizing air flows to aeration basins – Case Study

    As a result of clean energy mandates and the rising cost of energy, wastewater treatment facilities around the country are retrofitting their instrumentation to run highly efficient, cost-effective, clean facilities. To reduce emissions and produce clean energy, solid wastes are often digested in large digester tanks to reduce the volume of waste (sludge) and produce more biogas, which is then ...

  • 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 ...
