  • Do You Smell Something Burning?

    For safety and insurance purposes, most if not all mechanical codes have requirements with regards to fire safety for materials used in a building’s HVAC systems. For instance, the State of Ohio (USA) MechanicalCode states in the section on “Air Filters” that: ...

  • Case study - N°NG1 – Natural gas monitoring – Medor Exp

    Context & Challenges Natural gas used for household consumption typically contains odorant sulfur components for safety reasons. As natural gas is normally odorless, the sulfur components are artificially added. When natural gas is transported between various companies, regions or countries, gas companies have to verify that the sulfur species are present as specified. ...
