  • The future is condition monitoring

    It’s been a big month here at Hansford Sensors. We kicked off November by celebrating our 10thanniversary, during which time we were playfully predicting what our company may look like in another decade. While our thoughts on this are strictly hypothetical at this stage, thanks to the release of a new report we now have a better idea of the state of the condition monitoring ...

  • Online condition monitoring of electrical power system imbalance

    Symmetrical components are of great importance in many applications in electrical power systems, such as power protection and condition monitoring. This paper presents a computer-based algorithm for online symmetrical components estimation. The proposed algorithm uses the samples of the phase variables (currents or voltages) to estimate the magnitude and phase angle of each phase phasor at each ...

  • Forests health condition is improving

    The trees health condition in Norwegian forests have improved for most of the country. The tendency from previous years are continuing. The exception is the territory Østlandet (south-east of Norway) where there have been a decline for spruce. The national Monitoring Programme for Forest Damages are performed by Skogforsk, NIJOS and ...

  • Fires at Composting Facilities: Causes and Conditions

    The subject of fires at composting facilities is a bad news/good news situation. The bad news is that fires are more common than we realize. Ask a group of facility operators if they have had to deal with a fire, and the majority will quietly admit they have. The good news is that we don’t realize that fires are fairly common at composting facilities. Most are neither frequent nor destructive ...

  • Landfill site improvement condition for PPC permit

    The installation is a landfill site licensed for the disposal of inert waste. It lies in a potentially sensitive location on the flood plain of the River Great Ouse, near Milton Keynes and it is therefore important to the client to ensure good environmental monitoring is undertaken. The site is divided into two sections, (the north western area and the south eastern area) by the River Great Ouse, ...

  • Some reflections on the conditions for favouring Integrated Sustainability Assessments

    Integrated Sustainability Assessment (ISA) should be both transformational and humble. This paper examines the political and institutional conditions that will be required to create an appropriate policy analysis framework that will embrace ISA. This will mean better connections between agencies that deliver and departments that ponder and finance. Such a combination will not be easy as there is ...

  • Variability of PM10 concentrations dependent on meteorological conditions

    The influence of atmospheric exchange conditions on near-surface PM10 concentrations is analysed for four cities in the South-West of Germany in the period from 2001 to 2005. For each city, the PM10 data originates from roadside stations and Urban Background (UB) stations, that is, two types of official urban air quality monitoring stations characterised by different emission situations. The ...

  • Integrated condition assessment for Navy system of systems

    Although the US Navy has made great strides in integrating technology to monitor and assess the condition of sub–systems, little is understood about how to fuse this data in order to construct a higher level awareness of the ship's overall readiness or current state. Drawing upon systems theory and systems–based approaches, we identify principles of hierarchy, control, suboptimisation, and ...

  • Effect of different water conditions on dissolution of nanosilver

    This study evaluates the time-dependent dissolution of nanosilver (nAg) in common electrolytes and natural waters. nAg was synthesized via Tollens’ method using sodium citrate as stabilizer; its morphology, UV–Vis spectrum, and particle size were characterized. The dissolved silver was monitored over time using filtration, centrifugation, and inductively coupled plasma atomic ...

  • The Measurement and Prediction of Conditions within Indoor Microenvironments

    Biocontaminants, such as dust mites and microfungi, can live in building habitats with a spatial scale of only a few millimetres. With the recent development of very small size microchip-based sensors, it is now practicable to measure the humidity at different locations within these microenvironments. In the laboratory study described here, sensors were used to measure the conditions in a number ...

  • Diatoms for assessing the ecological condition of inland freshwater bodies

    The ecological responses of diatoms to pollution and nutrient enrichment, caused by domestic and municipal sewage, in the five fresh water ponds have been examined. It was observed that diatoms were completely absent in P3 and some species were also absent in P1 and P2. Similarly, diatom diversity was lower in P1 and P2 than in P4 and P5. However, diatom abundance was higher in P4. The Biological ...

  • Biotreatment of Odors from the Zimpro Sludge Conditioning Process

    Management of odor emissions generated during thermal sludge conditioning is a well known disadvantage of the “Zimpro” process. Traditional methods of using chemical oxidation and high temperature destruction result in the formation of secondary products, such as chlorine gas, organic halocarbons or nitrogen oxides. In this study, biotrickling filter technology was evaluated at the Villa Hills ...

  • Developing Reference Conditions For Phytoplankton in The Baltic Coastal Waters

    For the implementation of the Water Framework Directive reference conditions have to be established for the various quality element. In this report we outline a number of approaches that can be pursued for establishing reference conditions for phytoplankton at a regional level and discuss the problems associated with their application. This report does not exhaust the topic of establishing ...


  • Dust monitoring

    Generally, two different approaches are used to measure the amount of dust deposited on a surface; Determination of the soiling of a surface, by a change in its properties; Determination of the quantity of dust deposited, by weight. WHAT IS DUST? Dust is a generic term used to describe fine particles that are suspended in the atmosphere. Dust comes from a wide variety of sources, including soil, ...

  • The adaptation of nitrifying microorganisms to inhibiting substances at meso- and psychrophilic temperature conditions

    This paper deals with adaption capacity of nitrifiers to allylthiourea (ATU) as a model inhibitor at two temperature levels. Nitrifying communities were developed at 15 (BM15) and 30 °C (BM30). The activity of the nitrifiers was determined by using short-time respiration (STR) tests, oxygen monitoring and in-situ measurements. The oxygen monitoring provided information about the ...
