  • Asbestos monitoring – what monitor should I be using?

    Asbestos is the name given to a group of minerals that occur naturally as masses of strong, flexible fibres that can be separated into thin threads and woven. These fibres are not affected by heat and do not conduct electricity. Asbestos is chemically, relatively stable. For these reasons, asbestos has been widely used in many industries.  These four types are classified as follows:  ...

  • El Niño/La Niña Update: Current Situation and outlook

    Despite warming of the Tropical Pacific Ocean up until June, the overlaying atmosphere largely failed to respond. As a result, ocean temperature anomalies along the equator have decreased over the past two months. Changes in the wind patterns in early-August brought some weak re-warming, but winds have now returned to near normal in the western Pacific, while the pattern of cloudiness has ...

  • Greenhouse gas mitigation in the EU: An overview of the current policy landscape

    In 2009, the European Union (EU) pledged a unilateral greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction target of 20 percent below 1990 levels by 2020, rising to 30 percent if “other developed countries commit themselves to comparable emission reductions” (European Council 2009). The EU’s GHG target forms one pillar of a so-called 20-20-20 package that, in addition to the 20 percent GHG reduction, ...

  • X-ray slag monitoring

    According to market research published by the Freedonia Group in June 2006, global demand for cement is forecast to ‘grow to 4.7 per cent yearly through 2010’. While demand for Portland cement, which currently accounts for three-quarters of all cement sales worldwide, will be healthy, sales of blended cements are expected to climb at a faster pace. Similarly, the Slag Cement Association reports a ...

  • Monitoring Air Makes Sense

    Did you know that air filters were originally put in air handling systems to protect the life of the equipment, not human life? And that it is not uncommon for air filters to get changed less frequently to save on maintenance costs? Monitoring input from sensors can tell operators when filters and media need changing. We have required food labels that list all ingredients. Why not electronic ...
