  • Detection of moisture in ammonia gas

    Problem Statement As technologies advance, so does the request for ultra high purity ammonia. Ultra high purity (UHP) ammonia is used in the semiconductor industries, production of flat panel displays, and a number of other applications. Due to this rising interest in UHP ammonia, manufacturers are having to battle ammonia’s most prominent and damaging impurity--moisture. For ...

  • Measurement of moisture in HBr

    Introduction Moisture in corrosive gases will accelerate the rate of metal corrosion in gas supply systems which, in turn, can lead to their premature failure. For this reason, it is important to monitor moisture levels in these gases. FTIR is an effective way to monitor for moisture in these corrosive gases. In order to determine low levels of moisture in corrosive gases, it is ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Noise Monitors and Meters

    Sound level meters Description and ApplicationsThe sound level meter is a lightweight instrument for the measurement of sound pressure level (SPL) in decibels. All ANSI-approved meters meet minimum requirements that include an A-weighted network, a slow-response meter characteristic, and a fully graduated scale with measurements ranging from 80 to 130 dBA. The Type II meter is most frequently ...

  • Studying soil moisture at a national level through statistical analysis of NASA NLDAS data

    The purpose of this research is to enable better understanding of current environmental conditions through the relations of environmental variables to the historical record. Our approach is to organize and visualize land surface model (LSM) outputs and statistics in a web application, using the latest technologies in geographic information systems (GISs), web services, and cloud computing. The ...

  • An analysis of extinction coefficients of particles and water moisture in the stack after flue gas desulfurization at a coal-fired power plant

    Two important factors that affect in-stack opacity—light extinction by emitted particles and that by water moisture after a flue gas desulfurization (FGD) unit—are investigated. The mass light extinction coefficients for particles and water moisture, kp and kw, respectively, were determined using the Lambert-Beer law of opacity with a nonlinear least-squares regression method. The ...

  • AquFlow (formerly Hydroflo) metering pump helps make fireproofing system a success

    Problem: Part of developing innovative technology is making its application as easy for the user as possible. So when W.R.Grace&Co.-Conn. went to market with an accelerator for its Monokote family of fireproofing products, a key priority was making the system user-friendly. The accelerator can save users money because it makes the product more efficient to apply and increases ...

  • The Fatal Flaw in Dew Point Measurement for Injection Molding

    Dew-point measurement is a common and important metric in the plastic drying process. A good dew point meter can tell you whether your dryer is working normally or if it’s in need of repair. Dew point meters do this by measuring the humidity in the air that flows through the dryer. What dew point meters won’t tell you anything about, however, is how much moisture is actually present ...

  • Japanese Organics Recycling Association Formed

    Another backyard composting adage states that compost should have the feel of a wrung-out sponge — damp but not dripping wet. Actually, a wrung-out sponge may be on the dry side for composting, but the analogy does provide a great image for understanding the reasons for balancing moisture. Like a compost pile (or windrow or material in a vessel), a sponge is a solid mass containing an enormous ...

  • Leak detection in semiconductor fab gas processes

    Problem Statement Often times in semiconductor fabs moisture levels are monitored to ensure that products aren’t damaged by excess moisture in the process. If there are above normal levels of moisture, pinpointing the source of that moisture can be difficult. The moisture could be evolving from impurities in gas tanks or leaks in the sampling lines. One way to avoid downtime ...

  • Beware of buying a home with MOLD!

    I have been performing home inspection for 18 years and I found that sellers will paint over existing water stains on walls to hide them from buyers. I do nondestructive moisture readings on all exterior walls in house, my meter will ring when there above normal moisture trapped in wall, when the meter rings I then proceed to investigate the exterior of house to find the cause of the moisture ...


  • Case Study: Museum Square - 5670 Wilshire Blvd.

    On October 13th, 2002, a large water supply line ruptured on the 6th floor of this 22-story office building. Water inundated five floors, soaking carpet, wallboard and ceiling materials. The building owner contacted Ellis immediately. Using moisture meters, Ellis first identified the extent of water damage. We then retained a contractor to strip away wet materials, dry interior wall spaces, ...

  • How can I measure Salt in food?

    Sodium is a mineral required by the body for normal functions, but excessive intake can cause high blood pressure and hypertension. This has lead governments and regulatory bodies to focus on monitoring the levels of salt in foods in order to reduce the risk of these health affects. Canned foods are of particular concern as these often contain relatively high levels of salt. ...
