Smoke generator device for leak testing & building envelope testing

by Concept Smoke Systems     based in Maidenhead, UNITED KINGDOM

Smoke is the perfect medium for discovering where leaks are and how big they are! Filling a `leaky` building, ductwork, pipes, aircraft or containment area with smoke and ideally adding a small amount of pressure to the area being tested, will result in a visible discharge of smoke and, simply put, the greater the volume of smoke, the bigger the leak. After Concept developed a bespoke system for their aircraft testing requirements, a spokesperson for the RAF commented: `The use of smoke as a means by which to detect cabin pressurisation leaks has been shown to be extremely effective and is unquestionably superior to any alternative detection method used to date!`

Noise monitoring for airports

by Larson Davis, a division of PCB Piezotronics     based in Depew, NEW YORK (USA)

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.

Combustion measurement for engines

by Dantec Dynamics     based in Skovlunde, DENMARK

Combustion processes occur in many modern technologies such as power production, heating, automotive and aircraft engines and even explosion research.

The application areas range from fuel injection and mixing and flow velocity information to measurements of combustion species and soot concentration.

Because of the impact on the global climate and the limited resources of fossil fuels, the importance of these applications is increasing, especially with respect to performance, fuel economy and CO2 emissions.

Noise monitoring for airport noise

by ACOEM     based in Limonest, FRANCE

Air traffic is the source of several forms of disturbance to the surrounding area, including, in particular, noise pollution. Local residents in the vicinity of an airport are the most severely affected and are very conscious of the aircrafts` flight paths and the impact on their day-to-day living conditions.

Fence line monitoring around an industrial site or airport

by AQMesh     based in Stratford-upon-Avon, UNITED KINGDOM

Monitoring the potential escape of pollutant gases from industrial sites or from airports can be difficult to achieve due to changing weather conditions, which may require a large number of monitoring stations downwind of the escapes.

Noise monitoring solutions for airport environment management

by Brüel & Kjær Sound & Vibration Measurement A/S     based in Nærum, DENMARK

The Public Demands Quieter Airports: Public demands for quieter airports and concerns about carbon footprints have brought about strict legislation that makes airport environment monitoring compulsory in many countries. Growing environmental concerns constitute one of the most serious obstacles to capacity expansion of airports.

Tire shredding

by SSI Shredding Systems, Inc.     based in Wilsonville, OREGON (USA)

SSI offers a wide variety of solutions for people who want to process tires for cars, trucks, aircraft, agricultural and OTR/Mining tires. Our focus has been to develop reliable, robust and easy-to-work-on equipment that will reduce whole tires down to chunks ranging in size from long “strips” to 1` or 2` (25-50mm) chips. We have systems that can process tires at rates ranging from 2 tons (200 car tires) to over 30 tons (3,000 car tires) per hour. Tires do not need to be debeaded in order to be shredded in our equipment.

Noise Monitoring

by Cirrus Environmental     based in Peterborough, UNITED KINGDOM

Airport noise monitoring often requires a combination of short term measurements to gather information along with long term measurements to maintain compliance with agreed noise levels. Cirrus Environmental has a range of noise measurement instruments that have been purpose designed for these tasks along with the NoiseHub software package.

Air quality management at airport consultancy

by Cambridge Environmental Research Consultants (CERC)     based in Cambridge, UNITED KINGDOM

We provide consultancy on aviation and air quality, such as dispersion modelling and emissions inventory compilation for environmental impact assessment at airports. We also conduct research into aviation.

Sound Instrumentation for Measuring Sound

by Norsonic AS     based in Lierskogen, NORWAY

What is the difference between sound and noise? Clearly more than the loudness only. Although an aircraft is very noisy, a mosquito at night-time can be more than enough to spoil a good night`s sleep. Instead of looking at the loudness only as a criterion for the degree of noisiness, we shall simply regard noise as what it is - viz. unwanted sound.

Ambient air quality monitoring at airports

by Opsis AB     based in Furulund, SWEDEN

To measure the ambient air quality at airports is a challenge. The monitoring site needs to be representative for background levels and not dependant on changes in local traffic. A large number of gaseous components need to be measured with high accuracy and high availability. The OPSIS DOAS system provides the user with a fast system that gives high availability at low cost. The impact of aircraft take-offs and landings can easily be followed on-line. The OPSIS system can also monitor fugitive emissions from other sources at the airport.

Recycling and Washing Products for the Aeronautics Industry

by International Surface Technologies     based in Laval, QUEBEC (CANADA)

We are proud to be manufacturers and subcontractors in longstanding partnerships with top names in the aeronautics industry, such as Boeing, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls Royce, Héroux-Devtek and Bombardier. We are located in the greater Montreal region where it is possible to build and assemble an entire aircraft, all within a radius of 200 kilometers – a shining example of diversity in this ever-evolving industry.

Safe waste handling at airports

by Envac AB     based in Stockholm, SWEDEN

Large amounts of waste are generated at airports – onboard aircraft, in catering kitchens, at the restaurants, in the shops and in the administrative offices. Dense air traffic requires fast, efficient waste handling, while also observing a number of safety regulations. The Envac vacuum system meets all requirements.

Emissions Monitoring for Airports

by Opsis AB     based in Furulund, SWEDEN

Opsis systems provide high-performance monitoring of the emission activities within an airport. The rapid system allows on-line monitoring of the emissions from each aircraft at take-offs and landings, monitoring of fugitive emissions from stationary sources and differing of the airport sources from the surrounding pollution sources.

Wastewater technology for the airports

by AWAS International GmbH     based in Wilnsdorf, GERMANY

Airport operations lead to many different types of wastewater for example through general airport, hangar and logistics operations as well as refuelling and cleaning of the aircrafts. The effluent from the runways is contaminated with oils, lubricants, detergents and other chemicals.

Mercury monitoring for aircraft research measurement

by Tekran Instruments Corporation     based in Knoxville, TENNESSEE (USA)

An examination of the literature shows that the Tekran 2537 is the choice for measurements of mercury aboard research aircraft. Several research groups in Europe and North America have used the Tekran 2537 on an aircraft platform for point source plume studies, free troposphere speciation characterization, vertical profiles, characterizing emission source regions and even the stratosphere (http://www.caribic-atmospheric.com/instrum/hg.html). Normally, the Tekran 2537 requires simple modifications for aircraft studies. Ask us to point you to past research, collaborating research groups and technical information if you are interested in mercury aircraft studies.
