  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Sensors and Sensitivity - The need for smart environmental sensing technology

    With the rapid increase in technology, environmental sensors are required to perform for a multitude of systems and must also comply with the Internet of Things. Over the past 100 years, environmental sensors have mainly been used to forecast the weather. Over the past 10 years, these sensing technologies have spread tremendously and now help to optimize many industrial processes; important ...

  • Upgrading from Pellistor Gas Sensors to Infrared Technology

    In this article Andy Avenell, Crowcon’s Fixed Systems Product Manager, considers the shift towards infrared (IR) gas sensor technology in the oil and gas industry. Abstract Flammable gases and vapours can present considerable dangers in many industrial applications, none more so than the processes involved in extracting, transporting and processing oil and gas. Fast and reliable ...

  • Measurement of hydrocarbons in produced water using fiber optic sensor technology

    Due to the non-availability of Freon, there is need for an alternative method to measure the concentration of hydrocarbons in the effluent from oil water separators in use in the oil industry today. Current methods use solvent extraction and IR analysis of water samples. In this paper we present an alternative method, which does not use any solvents and can provide in-situ analysis of the ...

  • Fundamentals of Multi-Sensor Separation Systems

    This paper gives an overview of the research at the Delft University of Technology in the field of automatic quality control and sorting systems, which are applied for solid bulk materials in the recycling industry. From theory it is known that a simultaneous detection of several features with sensors of different detection principles improves the quality of the classification dramatically. ...

  • Sensors & Automation to Simplify Bioprocess Operations

    Utilising sensors & automation to simplify bioprocess operations means that more work can be done in less time. By automating the routine tasks carried out in the lab, valuable time can be devoted to more important tasks. Here are two practical examples of automating routine tasks in upstream and downstream bioprocessing with relatively simple instrumentation. Automated ...
