  • Measurement Uncertainty in Environmental Noise Measurement

    Any measurement is meaningless without an uncertainty or tolerance associated with it. All measured numbers contain errors, and as such have an associated uncertainty. Disturbing as it is to an engineer, it is actually not possible to measure anything exactly. One definition of uncertainty is “A parameter, associated with the result of a measurement that characterizes the dispersion of the ...

  • Bed Level Measurement

    Numerous studies and papers have been devoted to the subject of thickener design and operation to achieve specified throughput and discharge densities. Mathematical models have been developed that present methods for sizing thickeners and predicting performance under varying process conditions. The compression effect of deeper beds on dewatering performance is a recognized phenomenon. This is one ...

  • Hand Arm Vibration Risk Assessment

    With recent high profile HSE fines in mind (including 2018 fines of £500k to Balfour Beatty and £400k to the Nordam Europe Limited), it seems many companies still don’t understand what a Hand Arm Vibration Risk Assessment is and what the risks are to their employees from using hand held power tools. If your employees use high vibrating power pools such as riveters, drills, power ...
