    Fluoride emissions monitoring in aluminum smelters

    Production of aluminum from its ores at aluminum smelters results in carbon dioxide CO2, carbon monoxide CO, sulfur dioxide SO2, and hydrogen fluoride HF gas emissions during the electrolytic process phase to the atmosphere. The gas emissions need to be monitored. Typically the smelters have emission limit values (ELVs) for sulfur dioxide and hydrogen fluoride emissions. These emissions should be measured accurately and with good precision, to ensure the smelter does not exceed its emission limit values. In addition several fluoride compounds may be produced in the electrolytic bath in the event of an oxygen shortage. These compounds include carbon tetrafluoride CF4, hexafluoroethane C2F6, sulfur hexafluoride SF6, and silicon tetrafluoride SiF4.

    High quality gas sensor solutions for modified atmosphere packaging

    Extending the shelf-life of perishable foods. Changing the atmosphere inside the packaging the shelf life of many fresh products can be extended. For example, by decreasing the amount of oxygen and increasing the carbon dioxide the shelf life of many fruits may be significantly improved. Using various gas combinations it is also possible to slow down the growth of bacteria and extend the shelf-life of other perishable foods like meat, fish and vegetables.

    Instruments and analyzers for spectral irradiance portable solutions

    Reflection and transmission measurements on materials, vegetation, water or atmosphere give valuable information about biological, physical and chemical processes. Processes driven by solar radiation, in particular bands of the spectrum through the so called action spectra, can be analysed or quantified with a sensor senitive in the particular spectral band. The MS-720 portable spectroradiometer gives total freedom to be used in different applications and range of the spectrum between 350 - 1050 nm.

    Instruments and analyzers for outdoor material testing

    Weathering of materials is most often an irreversible process affecting the cosmetic properties or strength of materials. This aging process is mainly driven by UV radiation, Heat and reactive elements in the atmosphere, for example chemical contamination. The plastic fabric of the product can dry and therefore weakened. The solar load can overheat the products and change material properties irreversibly. A common method to test the deterioration of materials is to expose materials to sun light and environment. To be able to quantify the aging process, the parameters that affect the aging process must be measured.

  • Distributed Temperature Sensing Technology for Stream Monitoring

    Temperature is an important factor in streams ecosystems. Heat tracers have been used to characterize contaminant transport, infiltration rates and energy exchange with groundwater, the atmosphere and radiation. The dynamics of these complicated water bodies is also affected by seasonal and diurnal patterns making characterization particularly challenging. Utilizing temperature measurements that capture spatial and temporal variations at stream ecosystem interfaces provides a mechanism for detailed characterization.

  • Measurement solution for Perflurocarbon (PFC) emissions from aluminium industry

    The aluminium industry is the major source of perflurocarbon (PFC) emissions to the atmosphere, which are a major contributor to global warming. PFCs have greenhouse gas effects up to 10000 times that of CO2. Emissions have been reduced over the last 20 years, but further reductions are harder to achieve as all the mechanisms for PFC production are not known. In order to better understand the production of PFC on an industrial level, laboratory studies have been carried out using a small scale cell.
