  • Tech Tip: Deploying Sea-Bird CTD in Ice

    Large numbers of Sea-Bird conductivity instruments have been used in Arctic and Antarctic programs. Special accommodation to keep temperature, conductivity, oxygen, and optical sensors at or above 0° C is advised. Often, the CTD is brought inside protective doors between casts to achieve this. Conductivity Cell When freezing is possible, we ...

  • Making your production work – key questions to ask

    The following is from an editorial feature published in the leading journal Process & Control, September 2016 There’s nothing quite like production downtime or a process heating and cooling system that’s struggling to cope to give engineering and production managers a headache. But there’s a wide range of ways to tackle the problem without reaching for the paracetamol. ...

  • Should Your Sensor Have A Connector Or Pin Terminals?

    When it comes to measuring the activity of your project, it’s nice to have options. High precision sensors can offer plenty of selections from the range of your measurements to the output of your readings, but a sensor is only as good at its connection. Connectors and pin terminals are common and dependable connections that relay your readings from within the sensor to the screen in front ...

  • Where do you find the latest meteo technologies at one place?

    Sustainability is the main theme of both the Meteorological Technology World Expo and the CIMO Teco (Technical Conference on Meteorological and Environmental Instruments and Methods of Observation)  held in Madrid from September 27 until 29, 2016. Therefore it’s the optimal platform to present one of our latest environmental sensor developments to a broad public: the ...

  • What should be in your First Aid Kit?

    Basic Essentials for a Low-Hazard Workplace For most it will be obvious that their workplace needs a first aid kit somewhere on site, but when it comes to the exact contents, things become less straightforward. What should they contain? What’s the bare minimum of items they should be stocked with? The simple answer is that there is no standardised list of contents, only ...

  • Facile synthesis of novel hierarchically porous carbon derived from nature biomass for enhanced removal of NaCl

    In this work, the hierarchically porous biomass carbon (HPBC) was originally prepared for desalination through a simple activation of cheap biomass carbon (BC). Such crucial activated conditions as the KOH/C ratio, the activation time and the activation temperature were deeply investigated. It is demonstrated that the activated conditions had a great influence on the structure properties and ...

  • Short-term temperature impact on simultaneous biological nitrogen-sulphur treatment in EGSB reactor

    Sulphides are present in many wastewater streams; their removal is important due to corrosiveness, toxicity and unpleasant odour, and can be carried out by anaerobic biological treatment. This study focuses on the temperature effect (25–10 °C) on an expanded granular sludge bed (EGSB) reactor for sulphide removal using nitrate as electron acceptor. The reactor was run at a ...

  • Measurement Science and Technology Paper - Potential for improved radiation thermometry measurement uncertainty through implementing a primary scale in an industrial laboratory

    A primary temperature scale requires realising a unit in terms of its definition. For high temperature radiation thermometry in terms of the International Temperature Scale of 1990 this means extrapolating from the signal measured at the freezing temperature of gold, silver or copper using Planck's radiation law. The difficulty in doing this means that primary scales above 1000 °C require ...

  • How to Find the Best Soil Water Content Sensor for Your Application

    Because there are many different types of soil water content sensors available, choosing the best one for your application may seem difficult or even confusing. To help you make your selection, it’s important to understand what soil water content sensors actually measure, what makes a good soil water content sensor, and how to make sense of the manufacturer specifications. In this article, ...

  • E-Guide Measuring Oil Viscosity

    The most important physical property of a lubricating oil is viscosity. Viscosity determines the load carrying ability of the oil as well as how easily it circulates. The correct balance between high viscosity for load carrying and low viscosity for ease of circulation must be considered for any lubricant and its application. ...

  • Linking field‐based metabolomics and chemical analyses to prioritize contaminants of emerging concern in the Great Lakes basin

    The ability to focus on the most biologically relevant contaminants affecting aquatic ecosystems can be challenging because toxicity assessment programs have not kept pace with the growing number of contaminants requiring testing. Because it has proven effective in assessing biological impacts of potentially toxic contaminants, profiling of endogenous metabolites (metabolomics) may help screen ...

  • Analysing coloured smoke | Pearl or Quest?

    Coloured smoke consists of an aerosol of tiny particles which is combusted or vaporized. The particular pigment or dye of each colour affects the colour of the smoke. The mixture usually includes a cool-burning formula based on potassium chlorate oxidiser, dextrin or lactose as fuel. Then one or more dyes are introduced to account for around half of the mixture. A small amount of sodium ...
