  • Following the fuel: How portable biomass energy generation may help rural communities

    The forests that surround many of California’s mountain communities tend to have an abundance of woody biomass and a pressing need for thinning to reduce fire danger. Revenue from selling forest residues to biomass power plants could help to support fuel reduction activities, but in many cases the nearest plant is so far away that hauling costs are prohibitive. The remoteness of such ...

  • Case study - Use of the Nor848A acoustic camera on wind turbines

    The acoustic camera system Nor848 is a powerful tool to investigate noise sources. In realtime you listen to a beamformed audio signal so that you can hear individual sources one by one. Immediately you can identify the strongest over all noise source in a multisource environment, and you can do the same analysis for single frequencies, 1/3 or 1/1 octave bands or any given frequency range. This ...

  • Case study - Wall leakage testing in the lab with acoustic camera

    Problem Facade insulation testing is usually performed by using a loudspeaker in the sending room, and record the sound pressure level (SPL) with microphones in both the sending and receiving room. The difference in SPL adjusted for the size of the dividing wall element will then give an estimate of the sound reduction quality of that element. However these measurements will not say ...

  • Odour Control at Pesticide Facilities: Eliminating volatile compounds

    Chemical formulation plants are susceptible to emissions of unpleasant and malodorous volatile compounds, a fact which makes the implementation of efficient odour control measures essential. North-western Spain is home to one of the country's oldest industrial sites for the manufacture of phytosanitary products, with some facilities located relatively close to populated areas. Recently, the ...

  • The role of regional location in innovativeness

    The relationship between innovation and regional location is the object of much debate in management studies. This paper analyses the role of the regional location environment in firms’ innovative behaviour using data of 8,193 Spanish firms from different regions in Spain. Our results show that regional-specific factors (autonomous regions, spending on innovation, number of patents applied for ...

  • Innovation and location in the multinational firm

    This paper provides an overview of the relationship between multinational corporations (MNCs) and local economic systems. It examines the implications of a decentralisation of innovative activity within MNCs for their interaction with local networks. It is shown that this interaction depends upon the type of cluster, whether a general centre of excellence or a specialised centre. These two ...

  • Typical Sensor Location Considerations

    The sensor mounting location within a space may be dependent on many variables. There are no specific formulas since each application will have it’s own determining factors and priorities. These include, but are not limited to: source of gas: Is the source a combustion exhaust from a vehicle or furnace or a vapour from a tank spill, pipe leak, or faulty valve? density of ...

  • Struvite Formation, Prediction and Locations.

    Struvite formation occurs when magnesium, ammonium and phosphate hexahydrate whose elemental composition of magnesium ammonia and phosphate forms in water combine in the exact chemical formulation as expressed by equation Mg2+ + NH4+ + HPO42- + 2H2O MgNH4PO4•6H2O + H+. This is the chemical term and formulation for struvite. This article goes over how Struvite is formed, the parameters for ...

  • LIMS Locates the Diamond in the Rough

    From the earliest days of digging into the earth for minerals, one question has been raised by all those seeking to make use of the materials the earth offers up:  what exactly have we dug up and is it what we hoped it would be?  Well we’re not panning for gold anymore and hoping for a glint of something shiny at the bottom of our pans, unless we hobbyists.  Modern ...

  • Locating Leaks for Cooling Water Systems

    This article illustrates how to locate leaks on cooling water systems in loud, industrial environments like Nuclear or Coal power generating plants without digging or putting anything inside the pipeline.  Infrared-Energy Pattern Analysis (IR-EPA) works on all pipeline sizes and all pipeline materials because it identifies the water outside the pipeline instead of listening for leak noises ...
