  • White Paper - Forward Scatter Visibility Meters (FSM)

    The use of Biral Forward Scatter Visibility Meters in the presence of haze, smoke and sandstorms The performance of forward scatter meters (FSM) in the presence of haze, smoke and dust is sometimes questioned as the fundamental operation of such devices is defined for hydrometeors (mist and fog) rather than for lithometeors (haze, sand, dust and smoke). This note explains why forward ...

  • Hydro Nano Gas could be the Answer for Neutralizing Carbon Fuel Emissions

    Hydro Infra Technologies (HIT), a Swedish clean tech company based in Stockholm, has developed an innovative patent pending approach for neutralizing carbon fuel emissions by generating a novel gas called Hydro Nano Gas (HNG). In spite of all the advancement happening in the energy sector, globa economies are ...

  • Pumps for the Booming FPSO Sector

    In the last few years, several new offshore oil fields have been discovered. The current findings from Petrobras and other companies in the pre-salt province, located in the Brazilian continental shelf, suggest reserves of over 50 billion barrels of oil. Extracting the pre-salt oil is challenging and done increasingly with floating production storage and offloading units (FPSOs). Sulzer offers a ...

  • Is The `Beep` Noise Pollution?

    It is rare these days that you can be somewhere without noise pollution intruding on some level. Many natural noises may be welcome; a dawn chorus or waves breaking on the beach, but when it comes to man-made decibels it’s a different matter. Never mind the sounds of cars, ring tones and other noises that we take for granted, have you ever noticed how utterly surrounded we are by the humble ...

  • Prescribed burn smoke impact in the Lake Tahoe Basin: model simulation and field verification

    Smoke dispersion modelling based on the Fire Emission Production Simulator and the Hybrid Single Particle Lagrangian Integrated Trajectory (FEPS-HYSPLIT) model was applied to prescribed burns in the Lake Tahoe Basin (LTB) during fall 2011. This, in conjunction with measurements at sources and real-time ambient PM 2.5 monitoring around LTB, served to evaluate the prescribed burning impacts on ...

  • Status of black carbon monitoring in ambient air in Europe

    Black carbon (BC) is increasingly discussed in science and environmental policy areas as an example of an air pollutant that affects both human health and contributes to climate change (e.g. WHO, 2012; UNEP/WMO, 2011; Bond et al., 2013; IPCC, 2013). In order to be able to make comparable measurements of BC in ambient air and to relate BC monitoring to health impacts and climate change it is ...

  • Applying Refrigerant Codes

    Administering limits for the amount of refrigerant that can be discharged into a space in the event of a leak Some years ago, two young and inexperienced technicians were called to work on a large refrigerant system. The system was not working properly because of an incorrectly installed valve. In their attempt to fix the system, the technicians caused a leak in the piping at the tank, which ...

  • Carbon Monoxide, Carbon Dioxide and Indoor Air Quality

    Chances are that unless you are hot or cold – or if you smell something funny – you probably never think about indoor air quality. However, scientists know that gases in the air that you cannot see or smell can still affect your health. Carbon Monoxide The most dangerous gas most of us will ever face is carbon monoxide (CO). Not normally occurring in nature, this ...

  • A Bayesian model for studying urban air pollution and respiratory symptoms in children

    The association between traffic–related air pollution and long–term respiratory health problems has been extensively studied. In this work we evaluated the effect of traffic–related air pollution on respiratory symptoms in children living in Florence, Italy. Children were selected from different schools part of the Italian Studies on Respiratory Disorders in Children and the Environment 2. ...

  • Construction of a low–cost laser–based multiplexed spectrometer: a potential probe for environmental pollution monitoring

    A low–cost, sensitive, laser–based (Helium Neon; He–Ne) optical Fourier–transformed (multiplexed) spectrometer has been constructed for the quantification of suspended particulates in the air. The optomechanical features of the spectrometer are presented together with a theoretical framework of its operation. The apparatus is calibrated by using a standard commercial spectrophotometer and has ...
