  • Mining Emissions Effectively Monitored with Micro Pulse LiDAR Technology

    Mining operations include blasting, excavating, scraping, and sifting large amounts of dirt. These activities create dust and other emissions that are transported by air currents to surrounding areas. It is easy to say that dangerous particulate matter (PM) generated by mining should be monitored and kept to a minimum; however, it is very challenging to measure the levels of contaminants in the ...

  • Multiple Instruments Work Together for a Better View of Air Quality

    Accurately identifying and quantifying particulate matter (PM) in the atmosphere is key to determining air quality. Researchers are particularly interested in PM that have a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometers because they are believed to contribute to heart and lung disease in humans and animals. These tiny particles are invisible to the naked eye and originate from power plants, fires, and ...

  • Beyond Karl Fischer: Titration Methods

    Almost every industry is concerned about water concentration levels in some way. Food and pharmaceuticals automatically come to mind, but fuel, explosives, agri-chem, and polymer processing businesses (to name a few) all rely on moisture content as a critical quality attribute. Karl Fischer titration (KFT) is the best-known technique for determining water levels in samples, and it is supported ...

  • Moisture measurement with M-Sens 2 - Case Study

    Application An energy provider burns biomass (waste wood), to produce electricity and heat. The biomass is delivered and stored in a self contained storage area. Following the separation process of removing (ferrous, non ferrous-metals), the remaining wood is conveyed to a fluidized-bed system, where it is burnt. The steam generated produces electricity via a turbine. During ...

  • Moisture measurement with M-Sens 2 Sensor selection with Easy-Tester - Case Study

    Application During the process of cement production cement powder is burnt to clinker. This process takes place in a kiln. For the operation of this kiln different combustibles are used, amongst others sewage sludge. The heating value of sewage sludge depends on its degree of dryness. Sewage sludge normally has a high moisture content when it is delivered to cement plants, therefore it ...

  • Humidity measurement with M-Sens 2 - Case Study

    Application An operator of a coal fi red power plant uses brown coal for the fi ring and therefore the production of energy. In an other part of the plant brown coal is refi ned and processed to briquettes and coal dust. For the processing of brown coal into briquettes different process steps are necessary. After its delivery the coal is screened and refined. ...

  • 4 convincing arguments in favor of regular sensor calibration

    Calibration of sensitive instruments such as sensors – environmental or industrial is very important. Most of the companies don’t give due importance to instrument calibration. They see calibration as an unnecessary expense. However, what they don’t realize is that if measurement equipment runs out of calibration, it can cost a Company its profits, reputation and may even put it ...

  • Level - what is Capacitance?

    An electrical parameter which physically is most easy to define, electrically often misconstrued. Physically, a capacitor is two electrical conductors separated by a non-conducting (or very high resistance) medium between the conductors. Consider the two plates of area (A) in Figure 1. The plates are metallic and they are separated by a distance (D). Figure ...

  • Factors affecting the choice of VOC sensor

    VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) perform many vital roles as fuels, solvents, cleaners, feedstock, sterilants etc. However, they can be harmful to health and the environment, so it is often necessary to monitor their concentration. By definition, organic compounds contain the element carbon, and exhibit similar chemical properties, which is advantageous from a monitoring perspective. However, ...
