  • Piezoresistive Pressure Sensors and the HPM-760S

    Piezoresistive Pressure Sensors - Direct Vacuum Gauges In the vacuum world, gauges can be characterized as being either “Direct” or “Indirect”. Direct gauges are so-called ...

  • UW team sending autonomous surfboard to explore Antarctic waters

    This week, a surfboard arrived in Antarctica. Not only was it missing a surfer, but the unique board was covered in parts that let it move independently and measure the surrounding seawater. The University of Washington project will first use the Wave Glider to investigate the summer conditions near ...

  • AMETEK Land - Industrial Heating - Process Thermal Imaging in the Modern Hot-Rolling Mill

    Single-point radiation thermometers are installed at a distance, and they view the infrared radiation that is emitted by the target object. Their noncontact nature allows them to operate out of harm’s way. Because they don’t touch the surface, they can accurately measure moving objects, whereas thermocouples suffer from a frictional effect, generating heat and eroding the ...

  • CO2 Gas Hazards in the Brewing Industry

    The hazards associated with CO2 in the brewing industry are well known, yet people still die needlessly every year in tragic and completely avoidable accidents in breweries. Just last year in Germany, which has a good safety record, two workers died in separate incidents at the same brewery. In the first incident, the owner was found dead with his head and torso in a beer mixing tank. It is ...

  • Determination of diurnal water level fluctuations in headwaters

    The aim of this paper is to study diurnal fluctuations of the water level in streams draining headwaters and to identify the controlling factors. The fieldwork was carried out in the Gryżynka River catchment, western Poland. The water levels of three streams draining into the headwaters via a group of springs were monitored in the years 2011–2014. Changes in the water pressure and water ...

  • Hydrogen Production from Sewage Sludge

    Hydrogen production has become a popular alternative to fossil fuels, and our customers at the University of Glamorgan conducted research on how fermenting sewage sludge can result in the production of hydrogen. Using sewage sludge as a base for fermentative hydrogen production offers several advantages over other biomass sources including it being low-cost, readily available wherever ...

  • Quantifying Sub-Surface Discharges from Individual Sewer Defects

    ABSTRACTThe California Regional Water Quality Control Board, Santa Ana Region (RWQCB) required wastewater collection agencies in Orange County to report discharges from “pipe breaks, leaking sewer pipes and joints, and other subsurface discharges of wastewater.” The Orange County Sanitation District (OCSD), in conjunction with a research team from University of California, Irvine (UCI), developed ...

  • Gas Safety in Confined Spaces

    Introduction A confined space is any space large enough for someone to enter and perform assigned work, which has limited means of entry or exit, and which is not designed for continuous worker occupancy. This covers just about every industry, including utilities, construction, hydrocarbon exploration and processing, petrochemicals, marine, agriculture, food processing and brewing, as ...

  • Gas safety in confined spaces

    An engineer repairs buried cables; a plant manager enters a small plant room; a contractor inspects the lining of a sewage pipe.  All these personnel face a common danger, despite working in widely different industries.  Gas-related injury poses a serious threat in any confined space where the free movement of air is limited.  ...

  • Food Sensor Technology: Gas Monitoring Issues Faced in Cereal Storage

    Guaranteeing food supplies is a growing issue. With a growing global population, climate change and ocean acidification disrupting crops and fish stocks, many countries face serious challenges in ensuring food security.1 As well as issues affecting food production worldwide. Another important aspect for food security is food storage and preservation. Food sensor technology plays a key part in ...

  • Micro Pulse LiDAR Enhances Global Aviation Safety - Case Study

    Monitoring Volcanic Ash provides early warnings of Hazardous Atmospheric Conditions Volcanic ash is a recurring impediment to normal air-traffic operations in Europe, Asia and South America due to potential jet engine damage caused by the razor-sharp particles in dense ash plumes. A notable example is the 2010 eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland that shut-down air ...
