  • 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.

  • Noise monitoring for airport noise

    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.

  • Combustion measurement for engines

    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.

  • Smoke generator device for leak testing & building envelope testing

    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!`

    Fence line monitoring around an industrial site or airport

    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

    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

    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.

  • Airport Environmental Monitoring

    Water pollution from airport run-off is increasingly coming under public and government scrutiny. As environmental regulations tighten, the ability to monitor for aviation fuel contamination from runway run-off has become essential.

    Monitoring sites at airports can be extremely challenging often with no power or telephone lines available and with limited access for maintenance. Chelsea’s robust UviLux Hydrocarbon Sensor with its low power consumption and high accuracy is ideally suited for this application. Installed at various locations around the airport, deployed with it’s own integrated anti-biofouling system, utilising the GSM network, the monitoring sites send data to a secure ftp site, where any internet enabled device can access the data. In this way the systems act as any early warning system allowing any hydrocarbon discharge to be detected in real-time.

    Optional environmental monitoring features include remote control to allow the user to turn equipment on and off, change the sample rate and detection range. There is also a facility to allow SMS text and email alarm notifications triggered by user-defined set-points together with customised web pages, data displays and automated data downloads via an ftp server.

    Airport runoff can contain high concentrations of various pollutants, in particular polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), the environmental levels of which have to be monitored. An understanding of the magnitude of contamination due to airport runoff water is important for the effective management of airport infrastructure. Chelsea’s robust UviLux Hydrocarbon Sensor with its low power consumption and high accuracy is ideally suited to the airport environment.

  • Noise Monitoring

    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.

    Sound Instrumentation for Measuring Sound

    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

    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.

    Mercury monitoring for aircraft research measurement

    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.

    Emissions Monitoring for Airports

    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.

  • Safe waste handling at airports

    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.

    Wastewater technology for the airports

    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.
