  • Understanding Oil-in-Water Instrument Specifications

    The measurement capabilities of oil-in-water analysis methods are described by several analytical figures-of-merit. Examples are: Range (Linear and Dynamic) Limit of Detection (LOD) Limit of Quantification (LOQ) Precision (Repeatability and Reproducibility) Sensitivity Accuracy Response Time Some or all of these are often specified by customers in the bid packages issued when selecting a ...

  • The Application of Time Domain Reflectometry in Geotechnical Instrumentation

    The performance of road pavements and earth structures is dependent on the moisture regime experienced during their service life. One of the practical challenges in understanding moisture regimes in earth structures has been to continuously monitor moisture fluctuations in a nondestructive and reasonably accurate way. The time domain reflectometry (TDR) device shows considerable promise in ...

  • Asbestos monitoring – what monitor should I be using?

    Asbestos is the name given to a group of minerals that occur naturally as masses of strong, flexible fibres that can be separated into thin threads and woven. These fibres are not affected by heat and do not conduct electricity. Asbestos is chemically, relatively stable. For these reasons, asbestos has been widely used in many industries.  These four types are classified as follows:  ...

  • How Accurate is Your Monitor?

    When you consider the many regulations and guidelines that health and safety officers and first responders are faced with, it is amazing they maintain the ability to detect such a wide variety of hazardous pollutants and toxic agents.  There is no lack of regulations governing how to monitor chemical compounds, and the list grows longer all the time.  New standards for portable gas ...

  • Staying Safe with Environmental Monitoring

    Geotechnical Instrumentation involves administering the earth and environment and it is hence that designers have made different frameworks to make the occupation simpler. These frameworks grab thousands upon much information that it orders and illuminates so they can concoct evidence. The places where it is necessary are the pollution chance appraisal, trends in time and space; anticipatory ...

  • The use of CFD modelling to optimise measurement of overflow rates in a downstream-controlled dual-overflow structure

    The measurement of the flow through complex combined sewer overflow structures in the frame of automated monitoring remains difficult. In this paper, a methodology based on the use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling in order to improve the instrumentation of a downstream-controlled dual-overflow structure is presented. The dual-overflow structure is composed of two combined sewer ...
