  • Methods of oil/fuel analysis

    PC GlobeCore can propose you to make a reclaiming test of yours example of fuel (oil) to verify the possibility of clean it. If the oil is contaminated and not suitable for use, filtration can be recommended. Or, you can also make this test by yourself using our laboratory/test-bench transformer oil vacuum regeneration system UVR. The regenerated samples exceeded yours expectations. Average ...

  • Vibration testing of fuel probes

    Aerial Refuelling The American Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey is a multimission, military, tilt rotor aircraft with both a vertical and short takeoff and landing capability. It combines the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the high-speed cruise performance of a long-range turboprop aircraft. But even though it is long-range, some missions require in-flight refuelling. The V-22 Osprey can ...

  • Fuel Polishing & Transfer Systems

    Earlier this year, Algae-X International came out with a totally new line of Fuel Polishing & Transfer Systems designed and built there in Fort Myers, Florida facilities. By listening to its customers, boat builders and yacht owners alike, Algae-X found out what they wanted to have as an on board fuel optimization package. The design is modular, so the right system can be chosen for each ...

  • Warehouse Optimization: Balancing Equipment Performance and Worker Safety Through Emissions Measurements and Air Quality Monitoring

    Successful warehouse functionality is dependent on both maximizing equipment performance and providing a safe and healthy environment for workers that encourages productivity. However, these two factors are often at odds with each other as warehouse equipment such as forklifts, burnishers and delivery trucks emit toxic gases that can have the potential to create poor indoor air quality which ...

  • Performance-Based Measurement Systems

    Many of the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) methods used to monitor air, water and soil for environmental contaminants prescribe step-by-step details on how the chemical analysis must be conducted and prohibit any deviations or variations. The EPA has recognized that monitoring equipment and technology have improved tremendously over the last few years; that environmental media do not ...

  • Fuel Cell Voltage Monitoring Considerations

    Knowing what’s happening inside a fuel cell is a critical function, especially as fuel cells are continuing to be developed. One important aspect of this is to measure the voltageof each cell in a stack. Although this may sound trivial, it can be more complex and more expensive than it may at first appear due to high voltages, high channel counts,communication types, etc. There ...

  • New technologies for measuring the humidity of biomass

    Methods applicable to a great variety of solid biofuels In recent years, systems have sprung up which use near infrared X-ray (NIR) spectroscopy, radio frequency (RF) and microwave spectroscopy as alternatives to the traditional method of measuring humidity by weight difference in the fuel burner. What these methods have in common is that they can be used for a great variety of solid biofuels, ...

  • Distributed Measurements Unlock the Future of Design

    The next generations of materials and design will require sensing technologies that can monitor beyond the scope of point sensors such as thermocouples and strain gauges. New sensing platforms based on optical fibers can obtain spatially continuous, real time data, giving developers detailed insight across broad areas into how their materials and designs behave. Such systems also can sense ...

  • Helping veolia transform waste into bio-fuel case study

    LIPODAN, a VEOLIA company, is a plant for recycling grease, food grease and used oil which is collected from restaurants, from gas stations, car garages, bus companies and similar locations. The plant treats 12,000 Tons of organic oils and 6,000 Tons of mineral oil per year. For recycling, the plant is using the LIPOVAL process. The oils are first converted to LIPOFIT, an ...

  • Monitoring Air/Fuel Mixtures in Glass and Glass Fiber Manufacturing case study

    Measurement of Premix Gas. To produce the desired flame in a glass forehearth or when making fiberglass (glass fiber) insulation, an air/fuel pre-mixer is used. The pre-mixer combines compressed natural gas or propane with air and this mixture is then piped to the process burners At the burner, a fuelrich or fuel-lean flame is produced depending on the air/ fuel ratio selected. In many ...

  • TRaC UK – LDS V984 vibration testing of fuel probes for the V22 Osprey

  • Tuning Your Boiler for Fuel Savings – Out with the Old in with the New Technology

    The USA has about 811,000 MW of installed generation and over 52% of our Electric power is produced by aging coal fired power plants. The average utility boiler furnace was designed about 30-40 years ago. According to DOE records, the average boiler in 1974 was fired with 80% bituminous coal. Now, western PRB coal is much more prevalent and represents about 50% of total coal ...

  • Can a gas engine use diesel fuel with less pollution?

    Anyone concerned with rising oil prices and pollution from fossil fuel might like to know about a new technology, which addresses both problems. Its application will put an end to the days of sooty smoke seen from accelerating diesel trucks and buses. The ...
