  • 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 ...

  • Pt. 3 - IN the MIX - Construction Safety and Gas Detection

    In our last blog (part 2 of 4) we consulted the OSHA Construction eTOOL to determine the factors that require a Gas Monitor. In this Blog (part 3 of 4) we explore Certified AIR ...


  • The importance of maintaining your fixed gas analyser

    Plant technicians rigorously check for contaminates within the digester and ensure that the performance is optimised but maintaining the gas analyser monitoring the whole process is often overlooked.  Many analysers are used in harsh and potentially explosive environments and so it is of paramount importance that the operation runs smoothly and safely. With simple maintenance of your ...

  • Fixed multi-parameter gas detection system can ensure industrial facilities are safe from hazardous or toxic gases

    Industrial workplaces are likely to come across one or more hazardous or toxic gases. Combustible gases such as methane are highly dangerous because they can cause large and fatal explosions when ignited. Other problem areas when working in industry are carbon monoxide (which poisons the cardiovascular system), oxygen deficiency, and elevated levels of other gases and pollutants, depending and ...

  • Case study - Geotech’s first GA5000 landfill gas analyser takes 100,000 readings for SUEZ environnement

    Geotech’s first GA5000 analyser, manufactured three years ago, was recently spotted in the company’s calibration rig.  This portable landfill gas monitor was the first production unit of the newly launched GA5000 gas analyser range and has prompted Geotech to look into the analyser’s life since then. The analyser was on its sixth service since manufacture, under ...

  • Wastewater Plant Relies on Thermal Flow Meter for Co-Gen Power Gas Blending Process

    The Rahway Valley Sewerage Authority (RVSA), which operates a large wastewater treatment plant in New Jersey, embarked on a green co-generation waste-to-energy project to power a portion of its operations.

  • Low level moisture measurement in Natural gas using a Lunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (tdlas) based laser case study

    Introduction The measurement of water vapor in natural gas has long been of industrial importance, and has been addressed by a variety of analytical techniques over the years. Chief among these techniques has been the quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) based analyzers. The QCM technology is still the workhorse for production and pipeline applications, and the technique is considered by most ...

  • Using Anaerobic Biomass Digestion to Produce Hydrogen and Biofuel

    For many years, hydrogen has been considered as an alternative to fossil fuels. Now, Scientists are aiming to develop an environmentally friendly method to produce hydrogen from biomass by optimizing anaerobic digestion systems.1 Climate change, dwindling fuel resources and energy prices have spearheaded intensive efforts to detect and optimize ...

  • Monitor Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) with PPM Technology’s IAQ Monitor

    Volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids. VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short- and long-term adverse health effects. Concentrations of many VOCs are consistently higher indoors (up to ten times higher) than outdoors. VOC’s is one of numerous sensor options that can be incorporated into PPM Technology’s ...
