  • Ferrous Wear Metal Measurement Made Easy with the FerroCheck

    Historically, one of the most cost-effective indicators of machinery health has been the analysis of ferrous debris in oil. Such analysis utilizes the ferromagnetic properties of generated debris to perform the analysis. Since nearly all wear debris contains ferrous material (in particular iron), an abnormal increase in the amount of debris can be directly correlated to abnormal machinery ...

  • The quality of the measurements in the environmental field

    Over recent years in various ways errors in environmental measurements have been criticised and large amounts of money wasted. It therefore becomes ever more necessary to increase the culture of the rigorous experimental measurement and handling of data. This is particularly important in fields such as our environment and our cultural heritage so closely connected to our life and our ...

  • Field verification of on-line hydrocarbon dew point measurements

    Introduction The Michell Condumax II applies a fundamental measurement principle for direct measurement of hydrocarbon dew point. Measurement performance is assured through comprehensive factory test and calibration, to verify that each analyzer offers accurate determination of the temperature at which hydrocarbon condensate forms. Further extensive examination confirms highly sensitive ...


  • Leveling the carbon playing field

    Climate change is one of the most far-reaching economic challenges of our times. Unchecked, it threatens the welfare of people around the globe. Mitigating the worst of its impacts will require mobilizing capital and technology in innovative ways that will transform the global economy. The good news is that if we do it right we can generate technologies and markets that will not only leave us a ...

  • Random fields in SVSlope and SVFlux

    Geotechnical engineering, as a general practice, has always struggled with quantifying the significant amount of variability that can be present at any given site. There may be variability present in field sampling methods, equipment, lab testing procedures, level of training of field personnel, or many other such factors. One particular problematic aspect of slope stability analysis is the ...

  • Comparison of different measurement methods of odour and odorants used in the odour impact assessment of wastewater treatment plants in Poland

    The aim of this study was to compare sensory and analytical methods used to measure odour and odorants concentrations for odour impact assessment on municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). A range of sources and odour or odorants concentrations were used to compare the methods. Four different odours and odorants measurement methods were compared: field olfactometry using Nasal Ranger® ...

  • Microstickies agglomeration by electric field

    Microstickies deposits on both paper machine and paper products when it agglomerates under step change in ionic strength, pH, temperature and chemical additives. These stickies increase the down time of the paper mill and decrease the quality of paper. The key property of microstickies is its smaller size, which leads to low removal efficiency and difficulties in measurement. Thus the increase ...

  • Free-field calibration in China

    Practically all reference microphone calibrations that are performed by national metrology institutes are pressure response calibrations. This is the case even if most practical measurements are carried out under free- or diffuse-field conditions. Fortunately, for measurement microphones, there are essentially fixed ratios between the pressure-, free- and diffuse-field responses. Therefore, the ...

  • ClarityNet® Improves Field Training

    Virginia Department of Environmental Services, Arlington, VA 'I like the way online training measures an employee's retention span and understanding of the programs,' says Dennis Cuddy, Safety Specialist. Employees also like the 24/7 access. 'The employees like going on the computer because it's more convenient for them to fit safety training into their work schedules,' he adds. ...

  • The soldier salesman: field instrumentation

    “The victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined for defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory.” — Sun Tzu, The Art of War These words may apply to warfare, and though they were written over two thousand years ago by a Chinese general, they could not be more accurate than when applied to today’s sales ...

  • Towards lessons from the field in India drinking : lessons from the field

    India being a vast and diverse country, we face many challenges in ensuring reliable, sustainable safe drinking water supply to rural households of the country. Though, in terms of provision of safe drinking water, we have covered more than 90 percent of the rural households, according to the National Sample Survey Office (NSSO) 65th round survey 2008-09, the authors have to recognize that much ...

  • Dynamic coupling of near field and far field models for simulating effluent discharges

    In many cases, (processed) wastewater or thermal effluents are discharged into the marine environment, rivers or lakes. To accurately determine the dispersion, recirculation and environmental impacts of outfall plumes, it is important to be able to model the different characteristics of the outfall plume in detail – from the near field (metres around the outfall) to the far field (up to ...

  • Field Performance Testing for Pipeline Pumps

    Significant energy savings can be achieved by optimizing pump operating efficiency. Measuring the exact pump performance with crude oil under realistic conditions in the field is the first step towards improving the pump efficiency in the future. About 20 billion barrels of crude oil were transported through pipelines in 2015. Around the world, there are over one million kilometers of ...

  • Successful Dunbar Field Life Extension

    The advent of high-power multiphase pumps is changing the world of oil production. In particular, they allow continued production from fields that are nearing the end of their useful lives. These revolutionary pumps have been in operation since autumn 1999 on the Dunbar platform, in the UK sector of the North Sea. Multiphase pumping (MPP) is essentially a means of adding energy to the ...

  • Field measurements and assessment of vibration serviceability of as–built long–span concrete floor

    Vertical vibration serviceability of an as–built concrete floor, whose 41.55 m span is currently the longest in China, are investigated in this paper by field measurements and numerical analysis. A vibration monitoring system were designed and installed on the floor. Different types of human–induced excitation are simulated such as single person walking, multi–person walking at the same pace ...

  • Sample Handling Strategies for Accurate Lead-In-Soil Measurements in the Field and Laboratory

    ABSTRACT The inhomogenous lead-in-soil matrix can present serious obstacles to accurate sample collection and handling. In typical lead-in-soil measurement, particle size related errors in sampling and sample handling often exceed all other sources of error. The magnitude of error can vary widely depending on the particulate nature of the lead contaminant and the effectiveness of control ...

  • Spatial and temporal patterns of remotely-sensed and field-measured rainfall in southern California

    Quantification of spatial and temporal patterns of rainfall is an important step toward developing regional hydrological models. However, traditionally used rain gauge data are sparse and do not always provide adequate spatial representation of rainfall. In this study, we evaluated the daily 1-degree resolution remotely-sensed atmospheric precipitation data provided by Global Precipitation ...

  • Field Test Experiments to Validate The CEN Standard Measurement Method For PM2,5

    For air quality across the European Union to be assessed on a consistent basis, Member States need to employ standard measurement techniques and procedures, following Community Directive 96/62/EC on ambient air quality assessment and management [1], and Directive 1999/30/EC (1st EC Air Quality Daughter Directive) [2], which sets the parameters specific to the assessment of particulate matter (and ...


  • Field Dewpoint Measurement - How Good Are We ? - Case Study

    Recently BJ PPS Leeds dried a client system with nitrogen. Dewpoint was measured using a Michell ADM dewpoint meter which was connected to the system at different locations via a one metre long rubber hose. The instrument was allowed to stabilise for approximately five minutes before each reading was taken. Average result was in the region of -27.5 °C. A check of our nitrogen supply and the ...
