  • Ferrous Wear Metal Measurement Made Easy with the FerroCheck

    Historically, one of the most cost-effective indicators of machinery health has been the analysis of ferrous debris in oil. Such analysis utilizes the ferromagnetic properties of generated debris to perform the analysis. Since nearly all wear debris contains ferrous material (in particular iron), an abnormal increase in the amount of debris can be directly correlated to abnormal machinery ...

  • Understanding Challenging Applications for Improved Metal Detection

    In the food industry, certain products can act like metal contaminants, a phenomenon known as ‘product effect.’ This is where the type of product being inspected can hinder the ability of inspection technology to correctly identify metal. At best this can lead to unacceptable false reject levels, at worst it can result in metal contaminated product leaving the production facility. ...

  • Frankfort Electric and Water Plant Board Verifies Distress on Ductile Iron Pipe Using Electromagnetics

    Commercial introduction of ductile iron pipe (DIP) began in the mid-1950s and was established as the most frequently selected material of choice for ferrous pressure pipe by the early 1970s. Due to the widespread use of DIP during a large expansion of pipeline infrastructure in the 1970s, there are many thousands of miles of pressurized DIP in operation today. Water and wastewater utilities ...

  • Fixed Versus Portable Gas Detection – Which Is Better?

    Did you know that workers are needlessly injured every year as a result of leaking toxic or combustible substances? Such incidents are known to involve a wide range of hazardous gases (including ammonia, carbon monoxide, chlorine, hydrogen sulfide, hydrocarbon vapors and so on). The sad reality is that most of these accidents are avoidable if only the workplace is adequately monitored. This leads ...

  • Buried debris case study

    Saufley Field, Escambia County, Florida GeoView was tasked with performing a geophysical investigation at a military base in the southeastern United States. The purpose of the investigation was to locate a reported debris burial pit. The burial pit was reported to be 60 feet (ft) in length and up to 10 ft deep. Historical records indicated that the pit  contained buried drums and ...

  • Affinity–based biosensors for heavy metal detection

    In recent years, there has been a pressing need for fast and reliable methods for environmental monitoring. Among the various pollutants, the heavy metals are some of the most harmful because these substances are non–biodegradable and retained by the ecological system. Conventional analytical techniques for heavy metals imply high cost, trained personnel and the repute that they are mostly ...

  • Probabilistic approaches to accounting for data variability in the practical application of bioavailability in predicting aquatic risks from metals

    The Biotic Ligand Model (BLM) theoretically enables the derivation of Environmental Quality Standards that are based on true bioavailable fractions of metals. Several physico‐chemical variables (especially pH, major cations, DOC and dissolved metal concentrations) must, however, be assigned to run the BLM, but they are highly variable in time and space in natural systems. This paper describes ...
