  • Reduce energy costs with a compressed air flow meter

    Consider the following situation. You find out you have been using way too much water at home. You discover a leaking gasket and there is water all over your basement. What is your course of action? Of course, it is to fix the leak right away. But what if this happened at your plant? And instead of water, we are dealing with compressed air? Probably nothing, because compressed ...

  • Protecting your pump against low to no-flow conditions

    Pump manufacturers publish different values for minimum flows in technical publications or on performance curves, but what does it all mean, and what should pump operators do with this information? Is there a difference between minimum flow and minimum continuous stable flow (MCSF)? What happens if you pump below these stated ...

  • Mercury: measure and control

    Following the new EU BREF document for waste incineration, European cement plants have to implement the requirement to continuously monitor and abate mercury emissions. To enable this they will need to apply technologies that measure mercury in the raw gas and optimise sorbent use. In December 2019 the new BREF (Best Available Technology Reference) document for waste incineration was published in ...

  • Getting Ready to Re-open; What can be Done to Minimize Risks?

    Restaurants are being allowed to re-open in many parts of the country, typically with some level of restriction that may vary widely from state to state.  In my home state of Massachusetts, one of the hardest hit by COVID-19, restaurants have been able to re-open as of last week – for outdoor dining only. Texas is starting phase 3 of its re-opening, with restaurants now allowed to ...

  • PlugCo | How To Use the Inflatable Pipe Plugs

    A pipe plug is a device made of rubber which is reinforced by fiber cords. It has different names in different regions. Some of these are: Pipe Stopper, Pipe Balloon, Pipe Bung or Pipe Cushion. Inflatable Pipe Plugs do not receive high attention as much as other industrial products. People don’t have much information about them since they are used in a specific field. So, people must search ...

  • Why Smart Capillaries are the Smartest Choice in a Gas Divider

    Because capillaries are static and probably will not change their performances for years and are ready to provide the best results as soon as the gas pressure is applied. Because capillaries are not always a stupid element : joined to PID electronic pressures control and using advanced setpoint calculations, applied physics give the base for relationships where all the influencing elements are ...

  • Using a Gas Liquid Porometer to Reliably Measure Pore Size and Distribution for Filter Media Used in Face Masks

    Surgical masks and respirators are typically made of nonwoven polypropylene fabric and mostly consist of three (or more) layers. The first and third layers are generally spunbond, while the middle layer is meltblown. This composition is commonly referred to as SMS technology (Spunbond/Meltblown/Spunbond). ...

  • Mass Flow Controllers Support Ventilator Testing

    Precision Mass Flow Control Validates Ventilator Accuracy It’s actually a life and death matter, and we take this very seriously. Accurate mass flow control is crucial in the process of validating the accuracy of oxygen flow for mechanical ventilators and respiratory medical equipment. Ventilators are designed to pump oxygen into a patient that is breathing insufficiently or unable ...

  • Flow-induced errors in airborne in situ measurements of aerosols and clouds

    Abstract. Aerosols and clouds affect atmospheric radiative processes and climate in many complex ways and still pose the largest uncertainty in current estimates of the Earth’s changing energy budget. Airborne in situ sensors such as the Cloud, Aerosol, and Precipitation Spectrometer (CAPS) or other optical spectrometers and optical array probes provide detailed information about the ...

  • Improving accuracy in analog mass flow measurements 5th order polynomial curve fitting

    Analog thermal mass flow instruments perform very accurate and repeatable measurements. These instruments are calibrated to meet an accuracy/linearity specification such as +/- 1% Full-scale. In a typical calibration, ten or twenty representative data points are recorded and analyzed and uncertainties are calculated for each data point referenced to a precision measurement standard. Careful ...
