  • Using Electromagnetic induction to characterize soils - Case Study

    Electrical conductivity measurements have been used for years to determine salinity and moisture in soils. Probes were inserted directly into the soil to determine how well the soil conducted an applied current. This process was slow and labor-intensive and was usually reserved for scientific studies. A more recent technique for measuring conductivity is electromagnetic induction (EM), a ...

  • 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 ...

  • The benefits of monitoring compressed air

    Compressed air is used in many manufacturing processes for many different reasons, from the actuation and control of pneumatic valves and cylinders to the operation of process machinery and tooling. It can also be used as a transport medium for bulk materials or as a purge gas. For all its uses it is nonetheless expensive. This is why, through detailed monitoring, a business can enjoy the ...

  • New ways for Metal Recycling

    REWAVE XRF 3-way-sorting in innovative  “Free-Fall”-design Recycling of metal and aluminium knows no limits because it can be remelted as scrap indefinitely. Metals, however have to be separated from non-metallic impurities, and different metals have to be sorted in pure fractions to be used as secondary raw materials substituting primary resources. Especially when it ...

  • PT sensors

    Temperature detectors based on the phenomenon of metal resistance changes with the change of temperature are probably the most popular type of temperature sensors used in industry sector. Most popular temperature resistors are based on platinum and nickel. Historically the first sensor made was the platinum sensor with the resistance of 100#1; and labelled PT100. Madur company uses the platinum ...
