Dust monitoring of exhaust gases from manufacturing processes

by DynOptic Systems Ltd     based in Brackley, UNITED KINGDOM

DynOptic dust monitors use the innovative Dynamic Detection Principle (DDP) to measure dust and particulate within exhaust gases from various manufacturing processes. DDP, or optical scintillation as it sometimes referred to, measures the dynamic fluctuation in light transmission as dust particles move through a light beam. This dynamic fluctuation derives from temporal distributions of the dust particles which attenuate the light beam. The more dust present in the exhaust, the greater the amplitude of these fluctuations. DDP instruments calculate the dynamic response, or the ratio of light variation to light intensity, which for particular applications, is proportional to dust concentration and when calibrated against standard reference measurements, this can be presented as a reading in mg/m³.

Continuous emissions monitoring for glass manufacturing

by Opsis AB     based in Furulund, SWEDEN

Process control and emissions monitoring in a glass manufacturing plant is a challenge due to high temperature in the flue gas. The OPSIS DOAS system provides the glass industry with an accurate analyser that will operate with a minimum of maintenance. The OPSIS DOAS system is based on a non-contact method that uses an optical path to measure across the duct.

Gas Detection Solutions for Fertilizer Manufacturing

by Boreal Laser Inc.     based in Edmonton, ALBERTA (CANADA)

Ammonia is a notoriously difficult compound to measure accurately and reliably using standard chemical sampling techniques. The great advantage of the optical laser gas detection technique for quantitative ammonia monitoring is that the optical measurement does not affect the air being sampled – and so a true, undisturbed value for ammonia concentration can be determined. The very high resolution and specificity of the laser method also means that is no interference from other gases in the air (for example, water vapor) – such interferences complicate other optical techniques using IR or UV.

Laboratory Weighing - Dynamic Weighing

by Mettler - Toledo Int. Inc     based in Greifensee, SWITZERLAND

The Dynamic Weighing application allows weighing results to be determined even under adverse conditions. For instance, when determining the weights of animals, weighing on board ship, or on an unstable surface.

Classification and identification of recyclable material

by Bruker Corporation     based in Billerica, MASSACHUSETTS (USA)

This level is expected to reach over 4 million tons by 2010. Companies that specialize in recycling carpet require a fast, reliable and accurate means of identifying the carpet face fiber type entering recycling streams. Collection of plastics for recycling is increasing rapidly. Plastic recycling faces one huge problem, plastic types must not be mixed for recycling. Even a small amount of the wrong type of plastic can ruin the melt. Whether it is a carpet or plastic, classification and identification of recyclable material can be achieved using Bruker Optics` state of the art spectrometer systems. Bruker Optics has applied the FT-NIR technology and experience to this demanding requirement, and offers the Carpet Analyzer as a dedicated solution for the recycling industry.

Pipeline Monitoring Systems for Health Monitoring

by Roctest - part of Nova Metrix LLC     based in Saint-Lambert, QUEBEC (CANADA)

Pipeline management presents challenges that are quite unique. Their long length, high value, high risk and often difficult access conditions require continuous monitoring as well as an optimization of maintenance interventions. The main concern for pipeline owners comes from possible leakages that can have a severe impact on the environment and put the pipeline out of service for repair. Leakages can have different causes, including excessive deformations caused by earthquakes, landslides or collisions mobile objects, corrosion, wear, material flaws or third party intrusion.

Dams and Dikes Structural Health Monitoring Systems

by Roctest - part of Nova Metrix LLC     based in Saint-Lambert, QUEBEC (CANADA)

The control of a dam requires a wide range of important information coming from the sensors, which are of vital importance for the life of a dam. Engineers in charge can take specific and sudden decisions for a correct control of a dam`s reservoir, body and foundations. However, monitoring is not only carried out by sensors, but it also involves direct or remote visual inspection as well as topographical measuring.
