  • IAQ UPDATE: Using an Infrared Camera to Detect Water and Mold Problems

    A low temperature range infrared camera is a very useful tool in detecting the presence of water or moisture that ultimately leads to mold growth. Infrared or thermal inspection does not directly identify the presence of mold, but it may be used to find moisture where mold may cultivate, especially behind wall board. But Beware!  I have seen many cases where the infrared camera results have ...

  • QuadOa and OGI: how EPA regulations are changing the way we look at gas leaks

    Earlier this year, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published Regulation 40 CFR, Part 60, Sub-part OOOOa, commonly known as Quad Oa, and finally brought optical gas imaging (OGI) firmly into the mainstream. This presents a major shift in the way fugitive emissions are regulated, and the technology that can be used.  Detecting and acting on gas leaks is naturally a major ...

  • Aerial Radiation Detection

    In this time of multiple threats to our security: dirty bomb; cyber; shooters in public places; homemade bombs; misinformation; etc. we feel extremely vulnerable; perhaps more vulnerable than ever before. With the advent of Drone technology now available to private citizens, technology previously only held by the military, the opportunity has come to marry Drone Technology with aerial sensors. ...

  • What is slip-flow and how does it affect filter performance?

    Recent scientific interest in nanofibers have many people exploring their use in filter media.  One of the advantages of nanofibers for gas phase depth filtration is the slip-flow phenomena.  The purpose of this article is to describe what is meant by the slip-flow phenomena and how it applies to filtration. Suppose you have a hypothetical camera that can take an instant snapshot of the ...

  • Measuring IR Light and Near-IR Light

    Infrared (IR) light emits a broad range of non-visible wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum. Applications for infrared, including near-infrared, are defined by the respective IR bands during output. For example, LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) equipment uses 1,000 nm and 1,550 nm IR bands while surveying an area. In the military sector, 850 nm, 1,060 nm and 1,500 nm (and up) are used ...

  • Monitoring Gas Emissions from Volcanoes to Predict Volcanic Activity

    To understand and predict the behaviour of volcanoes an increasing number of scientists are combining geological monitoring and geochemical models. By measuring and monitoring the prevalence of gases like CO2, scientists hope to be able to better predict the likelihood of volcanic eruptions. In 2010 Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano erupted, releasing 250 million ...
