  • Heat and Moisture Transfer Characteristics of Compacted Mackenzie Silt

    The heat and moisture transfer characteristics of a silt from the Mackenzie River Valley have been determined in a laboratory investigation. A dual gamma-ray scanner was used to measure the changes in density and volumetric moisture content along the soil samples. The coefficients of soil-water diffusivity under isothermal conditions and under temperature gradients have been obtained. The ...

  • Advances in Optical Techniques for Moisture and Hydrocarbon Detection

    Abstract Every year, the world uses in the region of 100 trillion scf (standard cubic feet) of natural gas (1). All of this gas requires treatment before it enters the pipeline, making natural gas processing a key global industry. Minimization of costs is achieved through optimization of these processes, requiring accurate online measurement of gas composition at multiple points in the ...


  • Continuous monitoring of moisture present inside a process chamber

    Problem Statement Moisture inside a process chamber is a big silent killer during wafer production. When production yield goes down, it is hard to pinpoint the source of the problem. Most of the time wafers need to be sent to labs for analysis, while production is stopped. If the problem is related to a high level of moisture inside the reactor, there are several factors that can cause ...

  • Monitoring the performance of moisture purifiers for process gases

    Problem Statement Moisture purifiers are a big aid in keeping moisture levels under control inside a process chamber. They are provided by manufacturers with certain life expectancies, which vary depending on the moisture content of the gas being purified. As a result, it is difficult to determine which gases have a high moisture content and which moisture purifier is becoming ...

  • SMOS soil moisture data validation in the Aurajoki watershed, Finland

    Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) level 2 soil moisture observations were validated by the soil moisture simulations of the Watershed Simulation and Forecasting System (WSFS) in the Aurajoki watershed located in Southwest Finland. The validation period included summer seasons 2010–2012. A new 2-layer soil moisture model was developed to simulate soil moisture in two layers, 10 cm ...

  • Suction-Moisture Content Calibration of Filter Papers from Different Boxes

    The filter paper method is probably the simplest of the methods available for estimating the suction of a clay soil. The method measures soil suction indirectly by simply measuring the moisture content of a filter paper having been brought to the same suction as the soil. Calibration of representative specimens of the filter paper over a range of known suctions defines the suction-moisture ...

  • Soil moisture and metolachlor volatilization observations over three years

    Received for publication June 18, 2008. A 3-yr study was conducted to focus on the impact of surface soil water content on metolachlor (2-chloro-N-(2-ethyl-6-methylphenyl)-N-(2-methoxy-1-methylethyl) acetamide) volatilization from a field with different surface soil water regimes created by subsurface water flow paths. Metolachlor vapor fluxes were measured at two locations within the field where ...

  • MCM’s heated Silicon Sensor Moisture Analyser against Aluminium Oxide and Oscillating Crystal Moisture Analysers, during Molecular Sieve Test Runs at St Fergus, Scotland

    Abstract Methods for dehydrating natural gas using molecular sieves (mol sieve) are well established. Many strategies have been developed with the intention of extending mol sieve lifetime and preventing unplanned shut-downs of dehydration units. The amount of adsorbent required in such dehydration processes is determined by the water content in the feed, the end-of-run (EOR) water ...

  • Effects of revegetation on soil moisture under different precipitation gradients in the Loess Plateau, China

    Revegetation can alter catchment water balance and result in soil desiccation. Large-scale revegetation took place in the Loess Plateau of China to control soil erosion and improve environmental conditions. However, the dynamic nature of soil moisture in response to revegetation under different climatic conditions is still unclear mainly due to lack of long-term in situ observations. To ...
