  • Smart compressed air measurement - Case Study

    Air may be free, but compressed air certainly isn’t. Every day, leaks and inefficient compressors cost companies money and lead to more electricity usage. As air  compressors churn away 24/7, endlessly maintaining the air pressure in compressed air distribution lines, dollars leak away from the bottom line. Measuring compressed air can be a big challenge. In many manufacturing ...

  • Making Ultrasonic Liquid Flow Meter Installation Easier

    Ultrasonic transit-time flow meter technology is becoming one of the most adopted technologies for accurate liquid and energy/BTU measurement. Although a major benefit of the technology is that it is non-invasive and can be clamped to the outside of the pipe, an inherent challenge with ultrasonic clamp on liquid flow meters is finding the best location to measure the liquid. This means ...

  • Our drinking water systems are a disaster. What can we do?

    In the wake of the Flint, communities turn to innovative technology and financing to prevent the next crisis. People in developed countries turn on the tap and safe drinking water flows, a dramatic health benefit they tend to take for granted. That complacency was dramatically disrupted last year when children in Flint, Michigan, started testing positive for lead poisoning and the ...

  • 50th anniversary of world`s first sound level meter

    Sound Level Meter Celebrates 50th Anniversary 2010 is the year we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Type 2203, the mother of all sound level meters. It was the world’s first precision hand-held and transitorised sound level meter. Produced for 21 years, it sold a record number of 17300 units. With its upgrades Type 2204 (Impulse time constant) and 2209 (peak detector), it accounted for a ...

  • Gas process automation

    Problem: Many relatively simple industrial or laboratory processes that require control of flow or pressure can be greatly improved with automation. Using a mass flow controller to control a certain gas flow rate, for instance, is far more precise and has a faster speed of response than manually adjusting a needle valve while consulting a pressure gage. Such processes can be automated ...
