Moisture Monitoring for SF6 / Air Circuit Breakers

by Moisture Control & Measurement Ltd     based in Wetherby, UNITED KINGDOM

SF6 (sulphur hexafluoride ) or air is used as an insulation gas in circuit breakers . Excess moisture in these gases causes arcing, which can trip the circuit breaker and cut off power to the distribution network. More seriously, such arcing can lead to physical damage of equipment and, on occasion, death of plant operatives (please ask for our case study on circuit breakers).

Perimeter Monitoring and Area Monitoring

by Boreal Laser Inc.     based in Edmonton, ALBERTA (CANADA)

GasFinder2 can be permanently installed to monitor chemical and petroleum plants for both combustible and toxic gases. GasFinder2 can be used to replace arrays of point sensors for perimeter monitoring. A single light path will replace many point sensors. With GasFinder2 perimeter monitoring, all gas dispersed from a facility is detected and logged.

Air monitoring equipments for outdoor & indoor air quality

by Gradko International Ltd     based in Winchester, UNITED KINGDOM

Gradko’s ambient air monitoring equipment is widely used to monitor both indoor and outdoor air quality. Continuous development allows us to provide equipment for a broad range of applications, covering short-term and long-term monitoring. Pollutants can be detected even at very low levels – limits of detection are typically in the low parts per billion (ppb) range.

Haze Monitoring

by Ecotech Pty Ltd     based in Knoxfield, AUSTRALIA

The principle cause of regional and urban haze, or visibility impairment, is light extinction caused by fine particles, sulfates, organic and elemental carbon, nitrates and crustal matter. Particles between 0.1 and one micrometers in size are most effective at scattering light, in addition to being of greatest concern for human health.

Environmental Monitoring

by MicruX Technologies     based in Oviedo, SPAIN

Environmental monitoring is becoming more important every day in local, national and international policies, showing the environmental awareness demanded by society.

This fact gives rise to an increase in the amount of legislation that obliges companies to law enforcement. Thus, the necessity of making more pollutants controls means high analysis expenses to the companies, which need to subcontract this service.

Although applications in this area advance, there is still a clear demand to get new portable and versatile analysis systems for many different application fields such as pollution in environmental or waste waters, monitoring nutrients in agricultural or horticultural water as well as general process control in chemistry industry. Because of the number of enviromental analysis required, there is a need for screening and monitoring measurements of these compounds at contaminated areas.

Traditional monitoring techniques are typically based on laboratory analysis of field-collected samples that require considerable effort and expense, and the sample may change before analysis. Moreover, the equipment currently available is too large and expensive and it cannot be made portable.Alternatively, microfluidic and electrochemical sensor technologies can contribute to the development of new portable monitoring systems, complementing standard analytical methods for different environmental monitoring applications.In this way, the decentralization and integration of all those typical analyses is the paramount importance in order to reduce cost, simplify the analytical process and make more accessible these technologies to end-users. The development of portable, robust, and accurate Lab-on-a-Chip systems to monitor priority compounds such as contaminants, explosives, chemical warfare agents, inorganic and organic ions is a demand of modern society. Portability allows analyses to be carried out outside of the laboratory, minimizing the risk of contaminating the sample and leading to a faster response time at a lower cost.

Thus, MicruX solutions and technologies open the gate to develop portable and esay-handly Lab-on-a-Chip devices in order to improve pollutants in-situ analysis in a very economic and efficient way.

Digital Pathology

by Excelitas Technologies     based in Mississauga, ONTARIO (CANADA)

Digital Pathology is an image-based information environment enabled by virtual microscopy. This involves imaging glass slides and saving and distributing their digital images for analysis, archiving and storage. The virtual microscopy slides are: •Scanned — using a microscope based scanning device that takes images of the whole slide via large scanning or stitching of smaller scans. This involves a motorized stage to scan the whole slide. Light source stability is important for scanning in order to prevent illumination variation across the whole scan. The X-Cite® exacte is commonly used in slide scanning systems. •Viewed — on a computer via viewing software •Managed — some of the slides have a barcode that is also scanned to enable archiving with patient information •Analysed — using image analysis tools and software, structures maybe automatically identified and quantified •Shared — digital pathology files may be shared over a network to gather additional expert opinion Digital pathology technology in no way replaces the expert eye and diagnosing power of a pathologist and a doctor. The only thing it saves is time to image the samples and also provides an efficient and organized way to archive the virtual microscopy slides for future consultations, record-keeping and disease comparison.

Environmental radiation monitoring

by HORIBA Europe GmbH     based in Leichlingen, GERMANY

Every day, wherever we go, we are exposed to minute amounts of environmental radiation.* This environmental radiation is emitted continuously, day and night, from various objects and substances in the natural world and our living environment.

Most environmental radiation consists of three types: alpha rays (α), beta rays (β) and gamma rays (γ).  HORIBA`s PA-1000 `Radi` environmental radiation monitor makes it easy for non-specialists to measure even minute levels of gamma rays.

* Environmental radiation, also known as natural radiation, includes radiation emitted from space, soil, stones, the ground and the air, as well as from manmade objects such as concrete and buildings

Air monitoring for laboratories

by GE Healthcare UK Limited     based in Little Chalfont, UNITED KINGDOM

Many of the air quality analyses can be performed with standard laboratory consumables, such as traditional filter papers. However, some analyses require materials with specific features, for example filters with low metal levels.

Common air monitoring applications include:

  • Air quality testing of ambient environment and emissions. Includes particulate monitoring methods such as PM2.5 and PM10, and chemical analysis such as heavy metals determination.
  • Asbestos sampling and analysis

Noise monitoring solutions for machine diagnostics
