An optical method for characterizing carbon content in ceramic pot filters
Ceramic pot filter (CPF) technology is a relatively common means of household water treatment in developing areas, and performance characteristics of CPFs have been characterized using production CPFs, experimental CPFs fabricated in research laboratories, and ceramic disks intended to be CPF surrogates. There is evidence that CPF manufacturers do not always fire their products according to best practices and the result is incomplete combustion of the pore forming material and the creation of a carbon core in the...
White Paper & Video on FTIR multigas analysis
Gasmet Technologies has published a free White Paper and a video on the simultaneous measurement of multiple gases in a wide variety of applications using FTIR. Both the video and the White Paper can be found here at www.gasmet.com or by visiting the Quantitech stand 62/63 at AQE 2017. With the ability to measure almost any gas, FTIR technology is employed in an enormous variety of applications including Continuous Emissions Monitoring, Stack Testing, Process Control, Industrial Hygiene, Engine Emissions,...
Optimus® Fired Up for Rocket Noise Testing Project - Case Study
Airborne Engineering Limited (AEL) specialises in measurement, testing and research; particularly of advanced rocket propulsion systems. One of AEL’s principle services is carrying out static tests of rocket engines for other aerospace companies. AEL is based at Westcott Venture Park, formerly the Rocket Propulsion Establishment, and operates two test bunkers, purpose built in 1949 for rocket and turbo-pump tests. AEL has refurbished the bunkers and outfitted them with state-of-the-art equipment and instrumen...
Fire Codes: A Foundation of Safety for a Rapidly Changing World
Chief among these safety features is fire protection. There are myriad codes and regulations relating to fire safety in commercial buildings, from standards on portable fire extinguishers to the installation of stationary pumps for fire protection — the U.S.- based National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) alone has more than 300 consensus codes that have been adopted in whole or in part in countries throughout the world. As rapid urbanization around the globe continues to spur construction of high-rise...
