  • Air Separation Plants and the Use of Oxygen Monitors

    Air separation plants are critical for many different industries, from clean energy to manufacturing. Nowadays, cryogenic is the most common type of distillation used to separate air into its component gases - nitrogen, oxygen, and inert gases including helium and argon. If your industry relies on air separation for product development or manufacturing, then knowing how the process works is ...

  • Oxygen (O2) Monitor for MRI Rooms: PureAire Sells a Hassle Free 10+ Year Oxygen Monitor.

    Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) facilities have the same thing in common, helium. Helium is used as part of the cooling process for a MRI magnet. PureAire Monitoring Systems Oxygen Monitors are becoming the newest safety product amongst MRI users, thanks to its 10 + year sensor. PureAire’s sensors do not require maintenance, or require replacement parts. Helium is a nontoxic, odorless, ...

  • Dissolved oxygen’s effect on ecosystems

    Dissolved oxygen (DO) is a measure of the amount of oxygen dissolved in water. It can be caused by a process of aeration of water flowing through rapids or falls, a byproduct of photosynthesis and the atmosphere. Monitoring DO levels in water may be more important than you think. From dead fish washing up on the shores of Singapore, to historically low levels of brown shrimp, DO is having an ...
