    Title : Preliminary Sampling Methodology and Analytical Procedures for Ambient Sulfur Hexafluoride, Corporate Author : ARMY MEDICAL ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING RESEARCH UNIT EDGEWOOD ARSENAL MD Personal Author(s) : Luckan,Susan K. ; Cooper,William J. Report Date : JAN 1973 Pagination or Media Count : 23 Abstract : A preliminary evaluation of techniques of sampling and gas chromatographic analysis for low levels of sulfur hexafluoride was conducted to determine the most feasible method for available equipment. Using a Tracor MT-150 gas chromatograph equipped with Nickel 63 electron capture detector and polarized dc voltable, it was possible to detect sulfur hexafluoride at a concentration of 0.06 ppb with a 5A molecular sieve column and nitrogen carrier gas, without preconcentration of the sample. Also, a comparison of glass and Saran sampling materials proved that no detectable loss of the tracer gas resulted with the Saran bags (between 6 ppm and 0.06 ppb SF6

  • Integrated real-time gas analysis solution for semi-gases industry

    CIC Photonics first applied its IRGAS technology to semi-gases when a major semiconductor equipment manufacturer, Applied Materials, requested a demo of its capability to monitor gas quality for epitaxial reactor applications; that was in year 2000. The IRGAS System met all of the technical requirements, which included ppb sensitivity for moisture as an impurity, gas cell chemical resistance to both acid and basic semi-gases, and fast concentration tracking time response.

  • Air Quality Monitoring Equipment for Sample Handling Industry

    Within the field of gas analysis much time is spent looking at the accuracy and uncertainty in the detection technique. However, without appropriate sample handling, what you are measuring could potentially bear little or no relation to your original sample.

  • Data analysis and visualization tools for monitoring well decommissioning

    Contaminated groundwater sites worldwide are engaged in regular sampling of monitoring wells at a typical cost of $1,500 per well-sampling event. On most sites, many wells are redundant or geostatistically insignificant and can be decommissioned.
    EVS-PRO and MVS`s Well Decommission module analyses all available data and quantifies the impact on site assessment quality associated with removing each well. The impact of removing a well is quantified in terms of its impact on the geostatistical plume extent.
    During remediation plumes are shrinking and may drift. This can necessitate decommissioning of some wells and adding new wells. C Tech`s well decommissioning and DrillGuide© technology provide the tools to properly monitor and guide the remediation efforts at the lowest possible cost.

  • Data analysis and visualization tools for groundwater and solute transport

    Groundwater and Solute Transport modeling is a sub discipline of environmental sciences with unique needs. Modeling has long utilized 3D simulations, but the ability to visualize and animate the results has lagged far behind the simulation technology. EVS-PRO, MVS, and EnterVol offer professional level presentation tools worthy of the current state-of-the-art in modeling. Visualization of groundwater and solute transport modeling results can be performed with all versions of C Tech’s software except for EVS for ArcView. EVS-Pro, MVS, and EnterVol are particularly well suited for animation and visualization of earth science modeling results from third party modeling systems such as USGS MODFLOW, MT3D, GMS©, Groundwater Vistas© and Visual MODFLOW©. Both combine animation capabilities with a powerful suite of visualization tools in a fully customizable environment.

    Analysis of Methylimidazoles in Caramel Colored Carbonated Beverages

    Caramel colorings are used as additives in a broad range of food and beverage products to impart a desired color, but have no nutritional or preservative function. Recently, the potential hazard to humans of ammonia- and ammonia-sulfite-process caramel colorings was raised, because they contain the by-product 4-methylimidazole, which is a potential carcinogen.1 The methylimidazole compounds are difficult to analyze due to their polar nature and low molecular weight. Traditional reversed phase techniques are unsuccessful in retaining these small polar compounds. Therefore, most HPLC methods utilize ion-exchange resins for analysis. Another common method involves GC analysis after the analytes first undergo a derivatization step. The purpose of the work shown in this article was to develop a simple and fast analytical method to determine the levels of 2-methylimidazole and 4-methylimidazole in caramel colored carbonated beverages.

    Gas analysis & monitoring system for food traceability

    Recognition of raw materials: The analysis of stable isotopes is very important especially in studies of authenticity of the food. It, on the basis of different isotopic ratio, allows to recognize molecules, present in foods, having the same chemical structure but coming from different raw materials or processed by different processes, for example for biological synthesis or industrial.

    Bromate analysis for the drinking water industry

    Bromate forms during the ozonization of drinking water. Several international standards stipulate detection limits and test methods. Conductivity detection with chemical suppression allows the determination of bromate in the lower μg/L range. In the ng/L range, bromate can be detected by IC/MS coupling or post-column derivatization with potassium iodide and subsequent UV detection.

  • Low frequency noise analysis using XL2

    The Data Explorer PC software for the XL2 Sound Level Meter now includes a series of professional tools for detailed analysis of low-frequency noise (LFN). The graphical representation of time varying frequency components offers an efficient process for identifying the presence and level of LFN. Also the associated high quality audio recording supports further correlation with the objective measurement data. The new features are particularly useful in the calculation of immission levels which is defined as the cumulative noise energy to which an individual is exposed over time. Exposure to low-frequency noise over extended periods can lead to a range of health problems including cardio vascular disease, insomnia and depression. The sources of low frequency noise can often be attributed to electricity sub stations, chiller plants and incinerators with continuous noise at frequencies below 200 Hz. XL2 Sound Level Meter records all Data Measuring LFN requires a class 1 sound level meter
