    Mining Emissions Effectively Monitored with Micro Pulse LiDAR Technology

    Mining operations include blasting, excavating, scraping, and sifting large amounts of dirt. These activities create dust and other emissions that are transported by air currents to surrounding areas. It is easy to say that dangerous particulate matter (PM) generated by mining should be monitored and kept to a minimum; however, it is very challenging to measure the levels of contaminants in the ...

    High Velocity Air Velocity Sensor

    Since the AirBoss is limited to +/- 2,000 fpm, we needed a high velocity air velocity sensor for use in fan discharge and ventilation air shafts – i.e. 0-24,000 fpm. Choosing to use the pitot tube method, a differential pressure signal is measured in inches of water gauge. But mine supervisors need to calculate volume of air flow, usually in cfm. Because the pitot tube pressure is highly ...
