  • Ferrous Wear Metal Measurement Made Easy with the FerroCheck

    Historically, one of the most cost-effective indicators of machinery health has been the analysis of ferrous debris in oil. Such analysis utilizes the ferromagnetic properties of generated debris to perform the analysis. Since nearly all wear debris contains ferrous material (in particular iron), an abnormal increase in the amount of debris can be directly correlated to abnormal machinery ...

  • Effects of maturity on chlorophyll-related absorption in nectarines, measured by non-destructive time-resolved reflectance spectroscopy

    The ripening of fruits like nectarines and peaches is characterised by the decrease in chlorophyll content or colour of the fruit flesh. However, measuring the colour of fruit flesh is usually not conducted, as there is a lack of suitable techniques. Time-Resolved Reflectance Spectroscopy (TRS) is a novel technique that can measure the light absorbed by the fruit flesh. Using a laser light beam ...

  • Quantifying Chlorophyll in leaves using a non-destructive method with the UniSpec-SC

    Chlorophyll is a driver of the physiological function of leaves. Quantifying chlorophyll content can provide information regarding the physiological state of leaves. Chlorophyll tends to decline rapidly when plants are under stress or during leaf senescence (Gitelson & Merzlyak 1994). It is very vital to understand the pattern of the pigment content change if we are to understand ...

  • Non-destructive analysis of concrete for corrosion studies using nuclear technique

    Chloride-induced reinforcement corrosion is the principal cause of deterioration of concrete structures in the Arabian Gulf and the world over. Preventive measures against corrosion require maintaining the chloride and sulphate concentration in concrete below the threshold limits specified by the standards. This requires monitoring the chloride and sulphate concentration in concrete, and a ...

  • Fibre optic sensors as a non–destructive tool for structural monitoring

    Structural monitoring is a diagnostic tool for detection of defects/damages and for scheduling maintenance operations. It is essential to determine the safety of the structures by Non–Destructive Testing (NDT) for evaluation of strength/integrity. This assessment is required for the repair, rehabilitation and life extension of the structure. Fibre Optic Sensors (FOS) are attractive sensing ...

  • Seeking Clarity in Noise

    Environmental noise regulation can be frustrating. The noise limits, applicable measurement metrics, assessment methods and level of enforcement vary a lot by region and jurisdiction and rarely do they all align. Historically, noise emitters and sensitive receivers could afford to use distance to separate themselves. Consequently, environmental noise laws were first developed in regions with high ...

  • Detection and measurement of toxic gases from destructive testing of batteries

    Problem Statement New formulations of organic-compound-based batteries for vehicle use must be tested for release of potentially harmful and toxic gases if crushed in accidents. Potential gases include hydrocarbons, fluorocarbons, and hydrogen fluoride, released within seconds of an incident. Actual time-resolved and quantitative data are required from destructive testing to ascertain ...

  • Level Measurement Problems crushed

    Pulsar non-contacting ultrasonic level measurement equipment copes even with the harshest and noisiest conditions, as this case study looking at stone crusher level measurement proves. Pulsar supplied Level Star non-contacting ultrasonic level measurement to Croft quarry in Leicestershire to control stone level in choke-fed tertiary crushers. The Level Star provides relay closures to control the ...

  • Chemical Tank volume measurement

    In this application, Pulsar equipment replaced other ultrasonic gear which was not coping with the multiple echoes coming from a dome top tank. Level Star 110 non-contacting ultrasonic level measurement was supplied to a major chemical manufacturer, resolving a problem they had in the effective gauging of Sodium hydroxide. The Pulsar equipment replaced ultrasonic equipment previously supplied by ...

  • Deep Well Measurement

    Pulsar's superior echo processing was proven once again in this difficult very deep Welsh wet well application featuring a 23m 'shot' that needed to follow the level between the heads of two submersible pumps. The reliability and versatility of the advanced echo processing technology in Pulsars non-contact ultrasonic range has been utilised at the SwanseaWasteWater TreatmentWorks, in a 23m deep ...

  • Daily measures of microbes and human health at a non-point source marine beach

    Studies evaluating the relationship between microbes and human health at non-point source beaches are necessary for establishing criteria which would protect public health while minimizing economic burdens. The objective of this study was to evaluate water quality and daily cumulative health effects (gastrointestinal, skin, and respiratory illnesses) for bathers at a non-point source subtropical ...

  • Contact-free indirect measurement

    The non-contact mode of measurement is very interesting for hygienic applications in the food-, pharmaceutical- and cosmetics industry, as well as for industrial applications with thick, adhesive and solid containing liquids. Experience has shown that conventional volumetric flow meters quickly come to their limit, while other measuring procedures are often very complex and/or are not suitable ...

  • Radar measurement in the North Sea

    Background / Task The NLWKN operates the barrier in the inland waterway of the river Ems. They are working with a dense monitoringnetwork which is required e.g. for the preservation of evidence in case of blocks for the protection against storm tides or if the water depth has to be increased to make the Ems navigable for big vessels coming from the dockyard. After an average a new radar ...

  • Cycle chemistry pH measurement

    pH measurement in high purity water has met with variable success. The high resistivity of pure water, the vulnerability to contamination, the variability of reference electrodes and additional temperature effects converge to make tins a particularly challenging measurement. Overcoming these obstacles requires a thorough understanding of the potential problems and their systematic solution. ...
