  • Monitoring Gas Emissions from Volcanoes to Predict Volcanic Activity

    To understand and predict the behaviour of volcanoes an increasing number of scientists are combining geological monitoring and geochemical models. By measuring and monitoring the prevalence of gases like CO2, scientists hope to be able to better predict the likelihood of volcanic eruptions. In 2010 Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano erupted, releasing 250 million ...

  • Spray-applied gas membrane system instrumental in methane mitigation at Playa Vista

    The Playa Vista development, located near Marina Del Rey, California, has drawn political opposition over land-use issues and building safety concerns dating back to the 1990’s, which continued through the project’s inception in 2001. At the heart of the public safety concern was naturally occurring methane gas, which is known to be explosive if allowed to accumulate in confined ...

  • A Portable High Speed Gas Chromatograph for Field Monitoring

    Over the last two decades a variety of portable or transportable gas chromatographs (GC) have been specifically designed for field use. Each instrument has introduced innovations that have simplified the task of on site air monitoring. Portable instrument users are well aware of the advantages of field sampling. These advantages include more representative results because there is no sample ...


  • Wastewater Treatment Plant Monitors Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    Globally, little attention is paid to gaseous emissions from wastewater treatment processes. This contrasts greatly with the regulatory monitoring that is applied to the quality of water emissions from such facilities. However, in Helsinki, Finland, a large municipal wastewater treatment facility continuously monitors its emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) to help in the city’s efforts to ...

  • Electrochemical Sensors for Specific Gas PPM Monitoring

    Echem sensors are able to read a specific gas even when it is mixed in a background of other gases. Echem sensors are typically used to read very low PPM concentrations of toxic gases. The Echem sensor consists of a small cell holding an electrolytic solution. This solution needs a specific gas in order to produce an electrical signal. When the specific gas passes through a permeable membrane and ...

  • Gas Monitoring for Ventilation Control and Energy Management

    The growing demand for underground and enclosed parking and maintenance garages (resulting from limitations on land availability) has increased the awareness and need for proper ventilation and control systems. In addition, increased health and safety programs have only added to the concerns of toxic and combustible gases in confined or enclosed spaces. Historically, ventilation and make-up air ...
