  • Peace of mind for waste management drivers

    Smooth running tires assure peace of mind for drivers concerning their vehicles. Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) constantly monitor tire pressures and warn of low tire pressures. Only about 10 percent of tire-induced breakdowns are due to sudden tire damage; the remaining 90 percent start with slow leaks. However, drivers usually notice this gradual air loss too late, and more serious ...

  • Blood pressure–lowering effect of orally ingested nitrite is abolished by a proton pump inhibitor

    Abstract Inorganic nitrate and nitrite from dietary and endogenous sources are metabolized to NO and other bioactive nitrogen oxides that affect blood pressure. The mechanisms for nitrite bioactivation are unclear, but recent studies in rodents suggest that gastric acidity may influence the systemic effects of this anion. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover ...

  • Case study - City of Sault Ste. Marie - Pressure Monitoring

    The condition assessment project consisted of a Sahara pipeline inspection to detect any leaks or pockets of trapped gas on the lines, as well as a period of pressure transient monitoring on each pipeline to check for any sudden peaks or drops in the pressures which could be damaging to the lines. Service: Sahara Transient Pressure Monitoring Client: City of Sault Ste. Marie Type of ...

  • Advantages of Midheight Pore Pressure Measurements in Undrained Triaxial Testing

    Most soil mechanics laboratories still prefer the use of rough end platens during triaxial testing despite an awareness that nonuniform stress conditions occur within the soil specimen. This practice may to some extent be due to a lack of awareness of the magnitude of inaccuracies which may result. This paper describes results from unconsolidated undrained triaxial compression and extension tests ...

  • Improved Particle Counting Accuracy in Manifold Monitoring

    Abstract Many particle counter users are unaware that – during traditional manifold sampling – the monitor undercounts the ambient particle concentration. Because of the additional vacuum created by the manifold pump, the particle concentration is substantially lower in the air sampled than in the ambient cleanroom air. Unless the system adjusts appropriately, this ...

  • A Calibration Chamber for Cohesive Soils

    The paper describes the design and performance of a calibration chamber system for testing in-situ test devices in cohesive soils. Techniques for preparing “undisturbed” clay specimens from a slurry and consolidating them under zero lateral strain K0 conditions are presented. The chamber was used for strain controlled model pressurementer tests during which pore pressure was monitored. Duplicate ...

  • City of Park City – Utah, USA - Case Study

    In order to better understand the condition of their buried pipeline network and proactively address potential water loss issues, the city of Park City, Utah engaged Xylem in creating a condition assessment program utilizing acoustic and transient pressure monitoring. While the Park City Municipal Corporation set a goal for Park City to become the “The Best ...

  • Monitoring and modelling of the effects of process settings and screw geometry on melt pressure generation in polymer extrusion

    Melt pressure is one of the most important process parameters in polymer extrusion and is closely related to product quality. However, it is not directly controllable and may be affected in a complex manner by changing other process operating conditions such as screw speed and barrel set temperatures. The ability to predict such parameters would be a powerful tool to aid process design and ...

  • Chatham-Kent PUC Hydrant data rod case history - Case study

    The initial Hydrant Pressure Transmitter was installed in the Chatham-Kent Public Utilities Commission (PUC) Distribution System. During the project the transmitter was moved to a new location in the vicinity of a commercial greenhouse as a part of a study trying to evaluate the impact of adding new commercial greenhouse units. During the study period, each day between 12:00 and 13:30 hours, a ...

  • Plan for Success on Drilling Jobs

    A few years ago, I received a call from a contractor asking for help mitigating a situation with a governmental transport agency in regards to monitoring downhole pressures as they were drilling under a six-lane highway crossing. They were asked to provide details on the drilling fluid they were using and the expected annular pressure while drilling. In order to do this, one must look at the ...

  • Heavy Metal(s) in Every Day Electronics

    “Heavy metal” isn’t associated only with rock music. In sustainability, it refers to real metals like cadmium, mercury and lead. And we can all agree that while a little heavy metal ringing in our earphones is OK, we really don’t want to find heavy metals in our water or soil. However, they’re in the electronics we use every ...
