  • The benefits of monitoring compressed air

    Compressed air is used in many manufacturing processes for many different reasons, from the actuation and control of pneumatic valves and cylinders to the operation of process machinery and tooling. It can also be used as a transport medium for bulk materials or as a purge gas. For all its uses it is nonetheless expensive. This is why, through detailed monitoring, a business can enjoy the ...

  • Studies on Geocell Reinforced Road Pavement Structures – Rajagopal, Veeragavan, Chamdramouli, 2012

    Too often, the scarcity or distance of natural resources, makes the strengthening of highway pavements a costly or lengthy exercise. Building on previous studies by Bathurst, Han, Pokharel and others, this study published in Geosynthetics Asia, provides academic proof that NPA Geocell reinforcement increases the stiffness and elastic modulus of pavements. Validation – Field ...

  • Air Pressure Monitoring for a Chemical Fume Hood

    CAS DataLoggers recently provided the pressure and temperature datalogging solution to a manufacturer using a chemical fume hood to protect workers by containing vapors, dusts, gases, and fumes, and then expelling them as air flowed into the hood from the front (open) side of the cabinet and then out via the ducted hood exhaust system. Designed for 2 operators, the fume hood had a Fiberglas ...

  • European waters - assessment of status and pressures

    EEA 2012 'State of Europe's water' assessments 2012 is the European year of water in which the European Commission published its 'Blueprint to safeguard Europe's waters' (referred to hereafter as the Blueprint) comprising reviews of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) (2000/60/EC), water scarcity and drought and adaptation to climate change policies. To accompany and inform the blueprint, ...

  • 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 ...

  • A Comparison Of Microbial Repair Mechanisms With Low Pressure And Medium Pressure UV Lamps

    Introduction It is well-known that bacteria and other microorganisms are capable of repairing their DNA following damage by ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Known as ‘reactivation’, it is a natural defense mechanism that has evolved over millions of years. Some microorganisms need visible light in order to repair their DNA (known as ‘photoreactivation’), while others can repair their DNA without light ...

  • Area Monitoring: Diffusion Sampling

    Indoor and outdoor gas hazards that exist in open areas are usually monitored using diffusion-type sensors. A diffusion sensor has no active sample-drawing system; diffusion sensors rely on the ambient air movement and pressure to deliver the sample to the sensing element. Diffusion-type sensors are a reliable and cost-effective way to monitor open area gas hazards. When installing diffusion ...
