  • Ionising Radiation

    Introduction The energy level of some types of radiation is high enough so that when they interact with matter they cause the formation of electrically charged particles or ion-pairs and break molecular bonds. These so-called ionising radiations are by their nature potentially harmful to life; at high doses they can be lethal and at lower doses can cause genetic damage. Ionising radiation occurs ...

  • How to Recycle Radiator Scrap?

    Radiator is widely used in cars, trucks and other automobiles. Radiators were also once an essential part of a home heating system. In today’ s life, AC radiator is more known by commons. Before discussing how to recycle radiator, let’s have a general knowledge of this three kinds of radiators. Car radiators was almost born with the automobile itself. We know that, as the ...

  • Aerial Radiation Detection

    In this time of multiple threats to our security: dirty bomb; cyber; shooters in public places; homemade bombs; misinformation; etc. we feel extremely vulnerable; perhaps more vulnerable than ever before. With the advent of Drone technology now available to private citizens, technology previously only held by the military, the opportunity has come to marry Drone Technology with aerial sensors. ...

  • Wastewater Recycling: Radiator Warehouse

     Radiator Warehouse is a small company that has been able to compete and grow through innovation and a commitment to cleaner production. After surveying available technology for recycling water and reducing chemicals, it decided to develop its own, much simpler system at a cost of only $10,000. This was not only cheaper than available overseas technologies, but was also just half the cost of ...


  • How To Recycle Scrap AC Radiator

    Every scrapper’s dream is to find a “jackpot” of metal that is ripe for the picking. If you have any type of experience under your belt, you’ll know that “jackpots” are not happened upon often...unless, you happen to find an AC radiator. These are the non-ferrous tube systems that are used to compress air and radiator off heat. The bigger the AC unit, ...

  • Clinical significance of low-dose radiation therapy: radiation hormesis

    This study was designed to investigate the clinical significance of low-dose radiation therapy, radiation hormesis, and accuracy of therapeutic regimen. Radiation hormesis was performed in six patients (four patients with malignant diseases and two patients with benign diseases) in the experimental room where they could be exposed to a low level of direct gamma ray and inhale radon gas ...

  • Brüel & Kjær’s radiation-resistant accelerometers

    Carrying out vibration measurements in harsh industrial environments is much easier for engineers with Brüel & Kjær’s new Type 8347-C Accelerometer. The Type 8347-C accelerometer can withstand temperatures ranging from -196°C (-321°F) to +482°C (+900°F) and has high resistance to radiation. The shear design ensures the accelerometer  superior thermal ...

  • The application of radiation sources in the oil and gas industry and shortages in their services

    Oil and gas industries utilise many radiation sources in various applied radiation-based technologies. Those technologies provide significant benefit to the daily operations of the industry. Gamma emitting sources of Cs-137, Co-60, Ba-133, Am-241 are used in oil and gas well logging, in Multiphase Flow Meter (MPFM) technology at oil and gas production facilities and in transmitted level gauges ...

  • Application of the statistical narrow-band correlated-k model to entropy generation through non-grey gas radiation inside a spherical enclosure

    In the present work, we proposed a numerical computation of entropy generation by radiative heat transfer through an absorbing-emitting non-grey gas, confined in a spherical enclosure. The 'Ray Tracing' method is associated to the "statistical narrow band correlated-k" SNBCK model, to solve the radiative transfer equation and to deduce the radiative properties of the gas. The effects of boundary ...

  • Effect of the radiation heat loss on propagation of the spherical flame through premixed coal dust

    An analytical study has been conducted to investigate the effect of radiation heat loss on the spherical flame propagation in coal–dust clouds. This research can be valuable in the development of alternative fuels; and it can be used by the fire safety and control industry. The model includes the evaporation of the volatile matter of dust particles into a known gaseous fuel (methane) and the ...

  • Prevention measures against radiation exposure to radon in well waters: analysis of the present situation in Finland

    Naturally occurring radioactive elements are found in all groundwaters, especially in bedrock waters. Exposure to these radioactive elements increases the risk of cancer. The most significant of these elements is radon which, as a gas, is mobile and dissolves in groundwater. In Finland, water supply plants are obliged to carry out statutory monitoring of the water quality, including radon. ...

  • FRACKING: Freeing Energy Resources versus Polluting the Earth and Public Health with Radiation and Toxic Chemicals?

    Fracking demands the use of millions of gallons of water, precious drinking water, and sand infused with up to 1,000 different toxic chemicals to fracture the shale rock and release the trapped gas or oil. The wastewater, brine, and sludge are then returned to the surface and in need of disposal. Unfortunately there is not yet a clear and safe method of disposal or storage. Among these chemicals ...

  • What is the reliability of chromosomal aberration assays as biomarkers of individual sensitivity towards ionising radiation?

    The development of biomarkers of susceptibility or sensitivity towards ionising radiation is important for the identification of individuals who may be at increased risk for the development of cancer after occupational, environmental or medical exposures. In this study we investigated the inter- and intra-individual variation of the MN assay and the G2 assay in irradiated lymphocytes to assess ...

  • Case study - Monitoring landfill gas

    Infrared absorption Infrared absorption is usually the preferred method for measuring methane and carbon dioxide. Most gases absorb radiation in the infrared region. The wavelength of radiation that is absorbed is determined by the natural vibration frequencies of the molecule. These natural frequencies will depend on several factors. Thus different gas molecules have different natural ...

  • On-Vehicle Exhaust Gas Cooling in a Diesel

    ABSTRACT A diesel emissions control system built and tested on an industrial forklift truck is described. The system utilizes a pleated media type diesel soot filter. The temperature limit of the filter material is well below the temperature of the exhaust gas. Therefore, cooling of the exhaust gas is ...

  • Gas Detection in Public Swimming Pool Facilities

    Recreational facilities’ indoor swimming pools provide a venue for exercise, competition and fun for all ages as patrons splash, swim, dive and float around in the crystal clear water. To keep the water fit to swim in requires a disinfectant maintenance program commonly using Chlorine, or Chlorine and Ozone. Chlorine is a powerful, corrosive disinfectant and in both gas and liquid forms it ...

  • Siting and Safe Operation of Liquefied Natural Gas Facilities

    Regulations require facilities to use computer simulations to model potential fire and explosion hazards from accidental liquefied natural gas (LNG) releases. This has required the run of several separate computer models and manual transfer of data among the models, which is a time-consuming process prone to errors. The Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR 193) defines safety standards for LNG ...
