  • Case Study: Liz Bagshaw on the IRC sensors

    Our infrared IR’C sensors have been making waves in the world of glacial meltwater monitoring. Glacial environments are key indicators of global warming and climate change. They’re also home to a diverse range of microorganisms. Both of these need to be quantified and monitored, but doing this isn’t easy because of the cold, remote environments in which they are found. To combat ...

  • Comparing Optical Turbidity With LISST-ABS

    For measuring suspended sediments, the use of optical backscatter sensors or other turdibity sensors is widespread. At the same time, it is understood that these sensors respond to total particle area, not volume or mass. In other words, optical turbidity sensors have this property: their sensitivity decreases with increasing grain size. The decrease follows 1/diameter. This has been published ...

  • How the LISST-ABS works

    INTRODUCTION: Sequoia’s Acoustic Backscatter Sensor, LISST-ABS is designed to measure suspended sediment concentration at a point. Unlike ADCP’s which may record similar backscatter strength at multiple points along the acoustic beams (‘ranges’), the LISST-ABS  only reports backscatter signal strength at a single point about 5 cm from the transducer. The ...

  • How & When We Measure Turbidity

    Turbidity, along with Suspended Solids, is a way of measuring the clarity of a body of water, and how many particles are affecting it. The difference is that while Suspended Solids describes the density of the materials in the water, Turbidity describes how those materials affect light passing ...

  • Wastewater engineers go with the flow

    The efficiency of maintenance work has been improved by water treatment engineers employing Intellisonde monitors in their final effluent. Designed primarily to measure water quality, the Intellisondes also measure flow, and this reading is being used to detect the accumulation of debris that necessitates a maintenance visit. Wastewater treatment efficiency is often measured by the analysis of ...

  • Reliable silica monitoring supports power station efficiency

    West Burton B CCGT is a Combined Cycle Gas Turbine power station near Nottingham in the UK. It has three open-cycle gas turbines capable of generating enough electricity for approximately 1.5 million UK homes. In common with all combustion based power stations, the CCGT has a requirement to monitor silica levels in the Plant’s water and steam processes. Sean Todd, the Plant’s Control ...

  • Harnessing The Power Of Microbes

    University researchers are advancing both the understanding and scalability of a biological process where bacteria living under anaerobic conditions consume organic waste and generate electrons and protons that are tapped for electricity production.IMAGINE a self-sustaining battery that never runs out of juice. While the notion may sound far-fetched, Dr. Leonard Tender at the Naval Research ...
