  • Noise monitoring for airports

    Airports, small and large, use noise and operations monitoring systems to reduce the noise of flight operations in the surrounding community.  Noise monitoring is generally used to evaluate noise abatement programs and to develop aircraft departure and arrival procedures that minimize the impact of aircraft noise based upon altitude, flight path, and time of day.  Noise monitoring is linked with radar tracking so that specific aircraft can be identified when noise limits are exceeded and so operational requirements can be enforced.
    Larson Davis provides noise monitoring systems to airports, consultants, and system integrators with the technology and support to make a successful program.

  • Air cleaning system for the data center

    The challenge for data center managers is to maintain or improve availability in increasingly dense computing environments while reducing costs and increasing efficiency.  Even though data centers are strategic business assets that continue to grow in importance, data center managers are under pressure to optimize operational expenses and reduce energy consumption without risking downtime.

  • Fire Weather Networks , Wildfire Supression

    Every year, 35 million hectares —or about 1% of the world’s forests— are lost to wildfire. Recently in North America the area burnt by wildfires has increased sharply, while regions like Southeast Asia and South America have seen a rise in the number of land-clearing fires and other escaped wildfires in equatorial forests. The extraordinary costs of fire suppression activities are matched only by the damages to property and ecosystems these fire wreak—in South America, this loss is estimated at $1.6 billion annually. In the US, damages from major fires were found to account for as much as 95% of total costs from fire. Advances have been made through the use of basic weather data from meteorological stations. In years past, fire agencies used this data to develop fire danger rating systems that helped them predict, prevent and suppress fires. How can fire management agencies improve their ability to predict, prevent and fight wildfires? By installing dedicated fire weather network.

  • Ground Penetrating Radars (GPR) for Archaeology

    In archaeology using GPR you can process considerable areas of planned excavations. Therefore, the needed excavation area can be substantially reduced. Time and financial costs reduce as well. Examining historical buildings GPRs allow to find hidden rooms, spot areas of demolition in the object structure. What is remarkable, you can make a noncontact research with GPR (e.g. above ground surface).

  • Noise and vibration monitoring for nuclear power industry

    The nuclear industry must increase the availability and reliability of its power stations whilst ensuring that a high level of safety is maintained. The principal weak points in achieving this objective are the industry`s systems and components.

  • Environmental technology for chilling - crystallisation industry

    For the generation of chilled water (down to 0°C) as well as for diverse crystallisation processes Körting steam jet chilling plants are used. This special chilling technique uses waste heat at a temperature level down to 80°C as motive energy. The first plants with combination of power/heat/chilling coupling are already in operation.

  • Solutions for the in-situ soil remediation

    For over twenty years, BioSolve Pinkwater has been used for Surfactant Enhanced Remediation (SER) to mobilize and solubilize residual NAPL[i], facilitating its recovery and disposal. Depending on soil and plume characteristics, Pinkwater solution can reach contaminated zones through deep injection wells or be gravity fed from surface level injection galleries. After desorbing residual NAPL from soil surfaces on contact, Pinkwater then solubilizes the hydrocarbons in an aqueous emulsion, enabling extraction at down gradient recovery wells or trenches.

  • Noise monitoring for industrial sites

    Industrial noise generated from plants, mills, refineries, shipping docks, utilities, and more, impact the quality of the surrounding community.  By controlling and monitoring this noise a community and industry can establish a working relationship that will benefit all.  An effective noise monitoring program will allow an industrial site to understand the noise sources and time periods that are causing concerns and then develop a plan for mitigation.
